Title: Colin's gone
Post by: PhilEsh on November 11, 2019, 05:17:06 PM

Cardiff City have parted company with manager Neil Warnock.

The 70-year-old was in the final year of his contract at Cardiff City Stadium and has said he would not carry on beyond the end of this season.

Warnock was appointed in October 2016 and after Sunday's home loss to Bristol City leaves with Cardiff 14th in the Championship.

Cardiff have begun the search for a replacement and an announcement "will be made in due course".

Warnock, who has been in management since 1980, leaves the Bluebirds after 144 games in charge, with 59 wins, 29 draws and 56 defeats.

In his second season with Cardiff he guided them to promotion to the Premier League in the 2017-18 campaign, although they were relegated after just one season in the top flight.

Cardiff City chairman Mehmet Dalman said: "On behalf of Cardiff City Football Club, I thank Neil for his invaluable contribution to the future of this great club.

"He not only gained promotion in his first season but played a pivotal role in uniting the fans and the club. I am personally upset by his departure and wish him the very best for the future."

More to follow.

Weird, when I was watching the game yesterday i thought he looked really unbothered (for him) about the whole thing.
Impressive career and always had the knack of making a crap group of players perform pretty well.

Could be a good route back in to UK Football, and he's got the track record to back their aspirations.

I like him.
Would have loved to have seen him deck Klopp
on the touchline..lol
People on here too quick to judge,you'd be surprised how much money he's donated to Hillside Horse and animal Sanctuary outside Norwich over the years.
Its patron Martin Shaw (actor) told me this at a meeting there once.
So for what he done there Colin is alright in my book.🐴🐴🐴😺😺😺😺😿🐈🐕🐕🐕🐩🐇🐇

He has strong links with Cornwall and I saw him once on a beach near Perranporth with his tribe. A bit like Ian Holloway, who we used to see about the place, Warnock had a bit of a reputation but away from football and the cameras he is all about his kids and gran kids.
So who has a vacancy then??????????????

I thought he was a good manager. Managed to make bad teams and crappy players good. Had loads of passion as well. As manger of Sheffield United he only got relegated because West Ham cheated. I can’t stand Cardiff but he certainly did a great job for them

Colin stated that Sheff Utd got relegated because Rafa fielded a weak team v FFC that is why a lot of Fulham fans hate the knob!

I think it was a little weaker but he was actually trying to sue West Ham

With forty years of management behind him the guy has no mean ability especially when it comes to over achieving teams and promotions.  I have always liked his passion for his teams.  A real character no matter whether you like him or loathe him and football needs as many characters as it can manage.

He actually oversaw 8 promotions over his managerial career, which is really quite impressive.

Put me down as an admirer.  He just knows how to get the best out of his players and that includes some quite unusual ones.  No-one ever got Taraabt to play the way he did.  Along the way he’s provided a lot of amusement.  The  Cardiff Wolves game of a couple of seasons ago, where he piled a heap of four-letter invective upon the Wolves manager, then having calmed down a little denounced him in the post match interview as having “No class”.  About the funniest ten minutes I can remember.

A brilliant villain for us to love to hate and us such football the poorer without him as love or hate the bloke he's a character and the game has less and less of those these days.

His success managerial wise was impressive to be fair even if his chosen style of play was less than pleasing to watch, but if you had a modest budget he was a bloke who would get limited players fit & organised and playing with passion. Outside football I've heard many an interview with him & him co-hosting on the radio & he's not actually a w*nker as a person & does have a decent sense of humour. Enjoy your retirement Colin!

Agreed, sport needs characters. Look at how boring and conventional many golfers, tennis players, racing drivers etc. are today in comparison with thirty years ago.

At risk of sounding an old git, it's a reflection of life in general. The work place used to be full of characters and you used to be able to have a proper laugh in the office. That's been ironed out of people, everything is now more corporate & soulless - it's a malaise that's infected football badly but it's everywhere if you look.

Absolutely concur with this set of exchanges and our apparent current inability or refusal to understand differences.  The mavericks, the eccentrics and those who have a personality that is not dictated by the consensus of what is the correct way for a human being to be, are all human beings who just happen to not want to conform to popular misconceptions.   They have always been there and without them life and the world would be an utterly boring and dreadful place.   Like them or loathe them they are what makes us a fascinating species.

Fair enough, I prefer managers not to be t***s, but I understand some people like the love to hate people.

One mans hero is another mans terrorist, live and let live. Colin did a good job at a lot of clubs who were in a difficult position, whether you like him or loathe him, there are certain high profile managers I am sure would not have wanted to get their hands dirty doing the jobs he did, and certainly would not do it without a cheque book to use as a crutch.
So Neil Warnock has had a successful career when you consider his achievements with unfancied clubs.
There is more to a Football Manager than just continueing to spend someone else’s money to buy success.

Extraordinary place this forum.  Leave this thread for a day or two, come back and we’re examining the nature of human reactions to difference through the lens of Neil Warnock.  I’m in full agreement with most of it too.

Wonder if he will take a shine to Cauley Woodrow if Barnsley rumour proves true.

Neil Harris in as his replacement - talk about an uninspiring appointment.
Title: Re: Colin's gone
Post by: Jims Dentist on November 16, 2019, 07:06:39 PM
IMHO Neil Harris has done a terrific job for Millwall, with very limited resources.
However, every manager has a shelf life at such clubs.
I think he will do well at Cardiff, his recruitment record is pretty good.

Post by: ScalleysDad on November 17, 2019, 10:14:26 AM
The new appointment seems to have hit a wall of apathy down in South Wales. Warnock was always going at the end of the season and one would have thought a smooth transition plan would be safely filed away. However good luck to him. It looks like Cardiff have hit the reset, consolidate, go again button.

Yes good luck to Harris.  I thought he was harshly treated by Millwall.  It will be interesting to see how Cardiff do under him.
