Karanka's disasterous season in the Prem was the worst I have ever seen as a Boro fanWhat a load of nonsense, Warnock a better manager for us than Karanka?
We most certainly were not heading for the play offs under Warnock btw, the football was absolutely dire...Derby away
Top five riverside era manager..But to have a poor season in the prem you first have to get promoted to it
Warnock had us playing worse football vs that abysmal Derby team than Karanka did vs Prem sides
Eeee.Top five riverside era manager..
Great post thatWOW! they say don’t meet your heroes.. unless your hero is Neil Warnock!
What a guy! Met him in the VIP lounge with my two lads, very accommodating and spent quite a bit of time with us answering questions and making us laugh. He is genuinely magic. I told him how gutted I was when he left.. ‘not half as gutted as me son’
Btw there was LOADS or Boro fans in last night.. didn’t feel like an away game. I think Warnock and Foster were surprised with how many were there tbh. Standing ovation at the end nothing forced and you could see Neil was genuinely moved and taken back.
Genuine laugh out loud moments from start to finish ‘Bury’ ‘Dog Shyt’ ‘Next Slide Please’ lol even some of his biggest critics on here would have had a belter of a night. Criticised the government, said he was brought up Labour through and through. Ooohhh!!
I was surprised with how early Kieran Scott got involved with the club.. it was in the summer with Sporar, Siliki and all that lot. I asked him about Siliki.. and he said “who”?
James Lea Siliki - “who are you on about now” lol.. the French lad.. the midfielder
He’s face changes.. recognition.. eyes roll, teeth grit.. laughs.. “he was no player his was he.. absolute rubbish”
He remarked on how quick Bausor was to get Keiron Scott’s players through (or ones that the club had identified) the one that upset him the most was Keiffer Moore, after clearing out the big earners and identifying cheap solid performers, he was the one that would be the final piece in the puzzle. More expensive than the rest but value for money, mentioned about his wages and the offer.. then Bausor low balled the offer.. Cardiff offered what he wanted.. only then did we match the offer and we ended up losing him. The Sammy Ameobi deal was done in 24 hours.. he said he’s never had a transfer done for him that quick. Bausor’s choice, he knew his agent etc. “First day of training and he’s fcuked his knee”
I asked him if he still spoke to Steve Gibson.. he said he’d sent him a few messages and he knows he dropped a bollokc getting rid of him when he did and the way everything was done. Warnock was saying he was genuinely hurt and really bitter about not getting to finish that season, as good as a team as he’s ever had.. no one in that league would have bothered them. He likes Carrick and thinks we could still do something this season, very complimentary about the youngsters.
by the sounds of it if a championship club needs saving from relegation he would come running, February to May next year watch this space. (he nearly joined Barnsley)
I agree, i remember the consensus would be that it would take time for the team to gel etc. it looked like things were starting to change and we were only a few points off the playoffs. We weren’t going down under Warnock that was for sureWarnock was on par with Mowbray for me AND he had a comparable record to that of Aitor Karanka. We got rid too soon, should have given him till the end of the season. Opportunity missed.
