Warnock Gone

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.

Pretty sure he predicted last season perfectly said Man City would win the league and Liverpool to win the Champions League back in November.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Sala situation doesn't sit well with him. Clearly he WAS their player and the undignified scramble to find some issue with the paperwork to avoid paying what - morally - they owe won't (IMO) be something he's comfortable with. I remember when he took the Cardiff job after a brief chat with Dalman (CEO) and Dalman told him he would send a contact over for NW's lawyers to check ....Neil said 'I don't need that - we've shaken hands and that's good enough for me' ..  He signed Salaand I'm sure he won't be comfortable with all the shithousry.

Colin won't like that the last game on this CV (potentially) is a loss to little old Bristol City........top shithousing on our part! 

No need for C.V now, mixed emotions about him going out of football though, if he is, a proper football man, raw emotions, and a great man manager, even though he hasn't embraced modern tactics etc. He will be missed either way.

I think the Sala affair had a huge bearing on his initial decision to retire.

He has been quoted as saying that if he had made him stay back in Cardiff, rather than go back to get his stuff, he'd still be alive. That's tough to deal with. 

Football will be a worse place without him in it... who can fans turn their hatred to now....any suggestions?

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.

What the actual......?

This is easily the weirdest thing I’ve ever read on here. What next, lap of honour from Holloway and Tomlin?

Cardiff hit the crossbar twice and played descent. Dont know how Cardiff thinks but sack the manager at this time and Cardiffs place in the table. He is what he is but I think he seems ok. Temperament and bad loser its the way he is. Sure he is a nice men private.

I think the sad events around Sala affected him deeply.

I’ll be sad to see him go. A very successful manager who we’ve had a few ding dongs with over the years. The game will be worse off without him and I’ll miss his tongue in cheek-wind up comments. I bet he’d be great company to spend a few hours in a pub with.

Not sure if mentioned on this thread, but please remember after we beat Palace in the play off semi he went into our dressing room and wished City the best in the final. ‘Go and win it’ were his words. And that is after being punched by a so called City fan after the pitch invasion.  That may have cost the club dearly.  
yep his teams were pretty brutal, but few managers had promotions like him.  Respect to Warnock. 
 

good luck to our favourite pantomime villain

Agreed.

Hope all is well with Mrs Warnock.

I learned today that a former colleague has lost his wife of 27 years to that odious disease.

He is unequivocally a "men private," when dressed in a shell suit/on a Saturday/at work. In his comfortable slacks, Pringle v neck and slip on shoes (witH tassles) about town in Cornwall with his Mrs I don't doubt he is anything but a "men private."

You lot seem to be enjoying this. He’s a dying breed is sir Neil, another nail in the coffin of football as we once knew it.

it was time for him to go mind, like I said the other day, something has gone in him this season and it was last year that did it.

big decision for Tan, historically he’s got more wrong than right......

I think you will find there is a lot of respect on here for Neil Warnock, the man.

His football, however, is shite.

I thinks it’s as has been already posted, the Sala affair has taken its toll, he was genuinely saddened by it, no way was he faking his upset when he was interviewed about it.  It may not be the sole reason, but I’d be very surprised if it isn’t a part of it.

I don’t , in most of our eyes he makes warnock look like mother Teresa . Utter *** of the highest order.

all joking aside about warnock, he does come across as a decent bloke away from the game . I won’t miss his style of football though.

If you read the whole thread you will see I’ve already answered the question you asked.  Assume you know Warnock well then. What makes him so nice in your opinion?

I have met a Holloway twice,.

He’s 100% Bristolian and very proud of it. Likeable guy, amusing and witty. Both were  at a presentation do’s of some sort and he was the guest speaker. 
Chatted afterwards and concluded that he’s a thoroughly decent bloke.

Neil Warnock has played his well-rehearsed media game for decades, he loves it, he has always been determined to deflect attention away from his players and bad performances by deliberately saying controversial things in interviews and watching journos lap it up.

He marched into a press conference at Ashton Gate with a copy of The Bristol Post under his arm and just read out LJ quotes from it and talked about how our manager/head coach was inexperienced and raw. Totally deflected the questions, very skilful.

I don’t claim to know Neil Warnock well, but throughout my working career I’ve met him a couple of times. When he’s relaxed, away from the spotlight with a beer in his hand, he’s a top bloke. He genuinely has affection for Bristol City, he thinks we are a club that deserves to be at the top. He has always admired Steve Lansdown and his plan to get City amongst the elite. He also made it quite clear that he has always wanted the chance to manage our club.

He has a great sense of humour and loves the fact that his well-rehearsed, tried and tested media antics wind up so many people (such as yourself) - he can’t believe how many fall for it and get angry at him, but that is exactly the reaction he craves, because it means he’s done his job perfectly. He takes the pressure off his players over and over and over and over again, but people still fall for it! 

Neil has gone through hell in his private life but he has still managed to cope with it whilst returning to football management and has delivered unrivalled success - averaging one promotion every four seasons over a 33 year management career. Unbelievable track record, yet lots who’ve never met him feel qualified to call him a “horrible person” ...

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

The football his teams play is certainly toilet

.. but generally speaking they’ve been ‘toilet’ to start with.

His ability to work with limited resources and, in a short time period, deliver promotion on a consistent basis is something that should be respected.

There are very, very few Chairman in football that has the patience of Steve Lansdown to allow a manager to deliver promotion the ‘right way’.

Frankly, since that Man Utd result nobody could say our own brand of football has been anything to write home about. Indeed, for the majority of the time it has been bland, boring shite tbh.

Yep, you’ve got a point there - the way opinions about personalities, and their alleged utterances, are placed on social media these days is very cringeworthy, especially regarding politics and issues such as climate change. It’s so easy to slag off opinions and standpoints and make judgements about people you’ve never met ...
