Neil Warnock: Tells players to keep their discipline

In addition to Varney, who was dismissed for an elbow at Millwall, the Leeds boss has been denied the services of Jason Pearce and Michael Brown in recent weeks with the pair serving three and one-match suspensions respectively.

Warnock has benched both Brown and Pearce since their returns and Varney could be in for similar treatment, with the Elland Road boss warning his players he expects better.

"We've got to try and keep our discipline a little bit better," he told the Yorkshire Post.

"The two sendings off - whilst I don't think they were malicious, we shouldn't be giving referees decisions to make on silly things like that. Pearce was on the halfway line and Varney was on the halfway line. We ended up losing games where we could have got a result.

"The players concerned with the sendings off should set a lesson to all of my players. If you're going to be stupid and put yourself at risk of losing your place, you might not get it back. Brown's the same.

"A stupid booking gets him a one-match ban and he can't get back in. I hope that continues."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
