Neil Warnock Interview five live


Recommended Posts

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000jqc7

Starts 1:07:30

Speaks about Abel Taarabt during his time at QPR.  interesting listen after listening to Bradley Orr speak about him.

He speaks about City towards the end of interview as he usually seems to.  We seemed to play his teams loads of times, but it's interesting how  prominent we are for him seeing as he never managed us.  Seems like he's finally retired, but I bet he'd love a crack at the city job for one last hurrah. 

Quite a funny line (about 1:32:00) about how he'd like us to respond when he finally passes away.   Fair play to him.  

Never been my choice of manager, but always viewed him as a pantomime villain rather than a hate figure.  Undoubtedly, he's had a successful and interesting career in football.  As part of football's rich tapestry I don't begrudge him his time in the game.

He’s like some 1970s comedian (or Holloway) who can only tell the same joke, he’s done this one hundreds of times, doesn’t he have anything else to say?

Absolute scumbag who plays shit football, a total dinosaur.

He can **** right off, I’d just as soon see Pulis return to BS3 as that ***.

This post match interview made me change my mind on Warnock from 2016. He starts off as the usual grumpy old git we know very well, but end's up gushing about City, the ground and the chairman. You can tell he used to love the banter with our fans! Apparently his daughter went to Bristol Uni so he probably used to visit the City quite frequently.

I understand what you mean

But we were hardly blessed with entertaining or exciting football this season and at least he has been there and won promotion on numerous occasions

Course you would .... Pulis or the most successful manager ever in English football in terms of promotions won? Tough choice ...

He makes a good point about modern managers with clipboard.  I'd also add that the amount of media coaching managers and players have robs the game of passion and some honesty.  It can all be very dull.

I don't agree with much of what he says, but he's always honest enough to say what he thinks.

Pulis has an infinitely superior record in keeping teams in The Prem, so he doesn’t need to keep winning promotion, unlike Warnock who has never managed once to keep a team up.

And I say that as someone who absolutely despises Pulis.

Deep down, he would love to manage us, knows a good crowd when he sees one.

 

He said as much in an interview a few years back.

I understand that he can rub people up the wrong way but I think he is/was great for the game.

Can’t argue with his managerial achievements either.

A pantomime villain, or perhaps the guy who ties young girls to railway lines in those silent films, is a good analogy. Never really hated him and always thought he was clever at interviews. Everything he said was for effect or especially to deflect attention away from his players.

What a great interview that is.

I've said before that I met Neil in Looe years ago while on holiday. He was walking his dog and I had stopped for a coffee and to get the kids an ice cream. He ended up sat at my table, saw the BCFC t shirt and spent a good half hour chatting. He was absolutely lovely.

That said, as a football Manager, he is one you love to hate but I can't help liking the bloke in all honesty.

....and I’ve said a zillion times on here that Neil Warnock is not a good enough manager for the premier league but he’s the man to get you there. We aren’t a premier league club so talking of Pulis’ record in the premier league is totally irrelevant ...

Asking if you'd rather have Pulis or Warnock is akin to asking if you'd rather have your left testicle chopped off with a rusty spoon..... or your right!

...or rather, it’s like asking if you want to be promoted to the premier league or not ...

He's old school. He's a winner. His long ball style is a myth, he works with what he has got.

He isn't afraid to speak his mind too.

He would suit us well.

Well no, it isnt.

You could make that statement if every Championship club Warnock managed got promoted under him, but I must have missed Rotherham going up a couple of years ago, and I don't see Cardiff anywhere above us.

It's not about that though for most people.Never going to happen now, but if Warnock had come in and got us promoted to the top league 95% of our fans wouldn't be as precious as you.
