Warnock Gone

Recommended Posts

21 minutes ago, RoystonFoote'snephew said:

I generally believe he's a nice bloke, Warnock's style of football has always left me cold. But he has been successful, and he's good at the mind games. Despite the impression, I don't believe he's ever said anything 'off the cuff' with every comment designed to engender a response. I'll miss the banter. 

I'm with you mate. I like the bloke.

His football, however, is utter dogshit.

What would the game be like if every other manager played the game like him ?

Gates would drop, TV audiences collapse, and the game would slowly die.

 

I hope he calls it a day now, together with Pulis and Hollowhead.

No room for dinosaur football anymore.

 

BS4 on Tour will be along shortly ...................

He was due to ‘retire’ at the end of the season, so highly unlikely we’ll see him in another managerial role I’d suggest!

I like the bloke as well. 

Sometimes, he strayed beyond the line of acceptability in criticising referees but, overall, he worked to create every advantage for his Club and to protect his players in public.

The game is theatre and needs characters like Neil to provide some colour and debate. Proper ‘old school’.... not many left in the game now... but the likes of Jonhson snr. at Torquay demonstrates that management style can still be effective. 

Have a good retirement. ... but wouldn’t be surprised if he ends up at Plymouth, if not as Manager, in some other capacity.

Probably, although I reckon he'd be tempted by a Rotherham-style rescue mission if he was offered enough cash to do it.

I doubt that ‘ cash ‘ is his motivation NR.

Said it before about Warnock (and Ollie in the same vein), off the pitch and away from football, two nicer blokes you couldn't meet. Both family men (Warnock leaving his job to nurse his wife through cancer and Ollie fighting tooth and nail to help his deaf daughter) and both have done a load for charities close to them.

On the pitch though, fkng wanchors.

Best of luck Neil. Hope your wife is well.

 

Can see Pulis getting this job. That'll be fun. :D

And what would be the chances that a lower league club could offer him so much money to delay his imminent retirement?
Slim to none I’d suggest, now he can just bow out & spend time with his wife without any other stresses.

Probably going to stand for the Brexit party in Cornwall.

Just left a nasty, spiteful Welsh outfit that is a pain in England’s arse and invariably has a full-on toddler tantrum when the result doesn’t go his way.

So Plaid Cymru would be a much better fit for him.

Disagree. 

“Two nicer blokes you couldn’t meet”. 

I’ve met plenty of blokes nicer than Holloway. You clearly don’t get out much 😉

Holloway is a *** - end of!

I always looked forward to warnocks interview on match of the day never pulled any punches when asked what he thought of the refs perfomance and the phantom goal at the gate a few years ago when he got right in the linos face and gave him the glasses routine hiliarious perhaps  someone could post the pic would love to see it again 😂😂😂😂

Never met Colin but have met Holloway twice. Very decent bloke. No edge to him at all. When I told him that I’m a SC holder at AG and a life long City fan he  simply said ‘every club has loyal fans like you’  I liked him.

I'm another who see's this as shame. 

If Warnock does retire I'd like to see him down the gate and come on the pitch before the game for a standing ovation. It's not hatred, he's always loved our club and fans in a pantomime sort of way. I'd hope our fans would give him this for all the years service.

I will respond 😀

Not a chance would City fans give him a standing ovation. He has no connection with our club as player or manager, and to be frank we have had some nasty games of football against his sides.

i have no idea of his personality away from the game, I have never met him. I wish him well in his life away from football if that what he chooses,and maybe he should if his wife is ill. But pantomime villan or not I will be glad if we don’t play a side with his characteristics again.

Did you read that in the Daily Mail.....  he is a decent bloke, very well liked in his community, nothing like his footballing persona which is all part of the ‘game’.

Plymouth would be seriously missing a trick if they didn`t get him on board in some capacity. He still loves Argyle and the fans still love him down there. With his connections he could do wonders for them.

I'd love to see statistics of managers being sacked or quitting directly after playing us. Change the Robin to a Shrike, we're managerial killers.

He said he would retire at the end of the season but the right boot of Josh Brownhill brought about the boot for Colin.

I've also read that he is a decent bloke behind his pantomime villain persona though have also heard that some of his financial dealings have been dodgy, though I cannot vouch for this.

The character may be missed but his brand of football certainly won't be.

He’s clearly a good guy off the pitch but his football style, his abuse of refs, his delusional interviews etc all belongs in the dark ages. I know a lot of it was part of the wind up act but was not acceptable at times. 

One thing I would say is he handled the Sala affair very well but that was probably the start of the end for him just because of the toll it took on him. 

Worked miracles at Cardiff but he wasn’t someone I ever wanted at City purely because of his methods etc.

The same people who love him probably routinely slag our manager and players off as well.

No I have watched him for years and seen how he has acted and formed my own opinion thanks. If you disagree that’s fine

So you have only ever given opinions about people you have met? Don’t think so

I wouldn’t call anyone a “horrible bloke”  if I’d never met them.

Okay however harsh you will allow me to call someone I’ve never met I will call him that. Cheers.

Funny thing is, I've listened to interviews when he's been unemployed and he comes across very well, and does seem an intelligent and likeable sort of bloke...... I know shocking ain't it.
I agree with you on a football angle, his football is shite and his attitude and rubbish he spews after a defeat is sickening. I dislike him as much as anyone, while he's linked to a club. As I say when he speaks about football as an observer he has come across very well, and interesting to listen too. 
Not trying to change your point of view at all, I understand it completely, just adding mine.

I meant outside of football. Just like if you saw either of them in the pub or in the shop. They would be pleasant and polite.

See Warnock or Holloway at a football stadium and give them a mouthful, expect to get a mouthful back!

I don`t disagree mate. Away from football he is apparently a cracking bloke - I know several people in Looe who know him personally and they can`t speak highly enough of him as a person. 

They aren`t football fans in the main though and haven`t had to suffer his tactics season in and season out.

Friend of mine bumped into him at a hotel in Worsley the night before (I think) Burnley v Cardiff last season. Said he was a genuinely decent and interesting man, happy to talk about all things football.

Hitler, Stalin, Saddam or any ruthless historical figure who caused so much pain and death to millions would qualify as ‘horrible’ because the evidence is there for all to see.

However RD has never met Colin but still feel qualified to call him a ‘horrible bloke’

Well please enlighten us with your first hand knowledge, after all you have met a few managers in your time haven't you?

Did you not once meet Lee's father? How did that go again?

Would be a shame if he retires. I know there's this whole Pantomime villain dislike between him and Bristol City (which is a well rehearsed act to divert attention away from his players), but he's a real character and a good man too.

His autobiography is a good read, he has a lot of respect for our club despite all the history.

I have a lot of respect for Warnock who has a fantastic management record. However, you're right about the Pantomime villain as it begs the question;

Warnock: Wheres my career gone?

Audience: ITS BEHIND YOU!!!!
