Neil Warnock[1] (born 1 December 1948) is an English former professional footballer and current manager of Queens Park Rangers F.C..

Since becoming a manager in 1981 he has managed several English football league clubs including Huddersfield Town, Notts County, Plymouth Argyle, Crystal Palace and, most successfully, an eight-year spell at Sheffield United.

Contents

Playing career

Warnock played for Chesterfield, Rotherham United, Hartlepool United, Scunthorpe United, Aldershot, Barnsley, York City and Crewe Alexandra, making a total of 326 league appearances in an eleven-year playing career. At Hartlepool he won the club's Player of the Season award in 1972.[2]

Managerial career

Non-League

After being involved in Sunday League coaching his first full managerial job was with Northern Premier League side Gainsborough Trinity in 1981. Following this he managed Burton Albion and Scarborough. At Scarborough he and Paul Evans, his assistant, won the Football Conference title in 1987, making them the first team to win automatic promotion to the Football League following the abolition of the re-election system.

With Mick Jones

He had earlier spent time as a coach at Peterborough United, where he met Posh assistant boss Mick Jones, who would become his own long-time assistant. Warnock then became manager of Notts County with Jones as his assistant. Warnock's assistant at Scarborough Paul Evans and ex-Scarborough physio Dave Wilson also joined the backroom staff, and the pair achieved successive promotions to get County into the top flight in 1991 (with Warnock turning down lucrative offers to manage Chelsea and Sunderland during this time), before Warnock left in the 1992–93 after County's relegation had cost them a place in the new Premier League.

In March 1993 he took over as 'consultant' at Torquay United, saving the club from relegation from the Football League. Warnock resumed his partnership with Jones, Evans and Wilson at Huddersfield Town, his appointment coming in July 1993.

Huddersfield Town

Warnock was quick to inject new blood into the Terriers' side, snapping up 'keeper Steve Francis, Darren Bullock, Ronnie Jepson, Tom Cowan and Pat Scully during his first season, all of whom would go on to become mainstays in the 1994/95 promotion season. He also showed faith in Centre of Excellence products such as Chris Billy, Simon Baldry and Andy Booth – a player then struggling to make the breakthrough who would go on to become a club legend in modern times. Despite these acquisitions Town struggled for most of the 1993/94 season, their last at Leeds Road, and Warnock was quick to offload fan favourites Iwan Roberts, Iffy Onoura and Chris Marsden while introducing a more direct style of play. He also didn't enjoy the best of relationships with cult hero Phil Starbuck.

The run to the final of the Autoglass Trophy coincided with an upturn in league form and a mass optimism further bolstered by the move to the new Alfred McAlpine Stadium for the 1994/95 season. Warnock's side won the Yorkshire Electricity Cup in late 1994. Warnock's side were genuine contenders for automatic promotion until falling away in the final few games to finish 5th (the final Play-Off spot that season due to league re-structuring). They triumphed on penalties over 2nd-placed Brentford after two thrilling ties and went on to beat Bristol Rovers at Wembley.

He quit Huddersfield just days after their promotion, but made a swift and surprising return to management at Plymouth Argyle, which had just been relegated to Division Three. Warnock and Jones achieved yet another promotion to get the Pilgrims into Division Two (via the playoffs).

Going it alone

Warnock then left Plymouth, with Jones taking over as Pilgrims boss. Warnock rounded out the 1990s with Oldham Athletic and Bury.

Sheffield United

He was appointed as manager of his boyhood club Sheffield United on 2 December 1999. In 2002–03, Warnock led Sheffield United to the semi-finals of the FA Cup and League Cup as well as the First Division play-off final, with the Blades beaten 3–0 by Wolverhampton Wanderers. This was the first time in his management career that he had lost a play-off contest, as he had achieved four promotions via the playoffs in the 1990s.

In 2005 Jones resumed the partnership by taking up the assistant's post at Bramall Lane, and at the end of the 2005–06 season the club were promoted to the Premiership as runners-up in The Championship.

The Blades performed well in their expected relegation battle, and for a long time looked to be heading for survival. However a turning point in the season occurred with victories for both West Ham and Wigan on the final day of the season, condemning Warnock's side to relegation. Warnock claimed in his autobiography that minutes after the final game of the season, actor and Blades fan Sean Bean burst into his office, blaming Warnock for the team's relegation in a "foul-mouthed tirade" while Warnock's wife and daughter were present. Bean denied this, calling Warnock "bitter" and "hypocritical", and arguing that he would never use such language in front of another man's wife and children. Warnock resigned from the club following relegation to take some time out of football.

A major factor that caused Sheffield United's relegation was that Fulham beat Liverpool in the penultimate game of the season. Liverpool rested many first team players (due to them not being in contention for the Premier League and concentrating on the Champions League) and consequently lost 1–0. Liverpool started the day in fourth place and finished the league a week later in third place.

Warnock was frustrated that Liverpool played a weaker team, because it did not give the teams in the relegation battle an equal chance of survival.

Crystal Palace

He spoke to Milan Mandarić about the vacant managerial role at Leicester City in the summer, but was never handed the job.[3] Simon Jordan spoke to Warnock about taking over at Crystal Palace following the sacking of Peter Taylor and, after initially not being keen over the job, he returned to football management with Palace on 11 October 2007.[4][5] Having his personal friend Simon Jordan as Owner and Chairman was certainly a help in him getting the job. Jones returned from his own sabbatical to join Warnock's team as assistant. Under Warnock and Jones Palace made a massive turn-around, moving from relegation battlers to promotion contenders in the space of six months, with Warnock's use of youngsters a major factor in the improved performances and results. Palace made the play-offs in the end, but were beaten at the semi-final stage by Bristol City, who went on to lose to Hull City in the final.

Warnock stayed on for the 2008–09 season, but on taking the job a year earlier he had made it clear that the Crystal Palace job would be his last managerial role in football, with the club's finances beginning the take a turn for the worse. The 2009–10 season saw Palace perform well despite being heavily restricted by the club's poor financial position, which resulted in the club being placed in administration late in January. A 10-point deduction was imposed by the Football League for this.[6] Crystal Palace's administrator commented that Warnock was 'let go' after telling the administrator he did not have the stomach for the fight to save the club.[7]

Queens Park Rangers

On 1 March 2010 Warnock joined Queens Park Rangers as manager on a three-and-a-half year deal after agreeing compensation with Crystal Palace.[8] His first match in charge was an emphatic 3-1 home win against West Bromwich Albion.

Disputes

Warnock, who is qualified as a referee,[9] but has never officiated at the very top level, is renowned for his outbursts, which some see as controversial and despite obviously being a very able manager these are often cited as the reason he has never managed a higher echelon club. He has had high-profile disputes with many inside the game, some of which are detailed below.

Players

  • Peter Swan – A player for Warnock at Argyle and Bury, he called Warnock "a prick".[11]
  • Geoff Horsfield – Warnock told him he was unwanted after a permanent deal had been agreed to bring him to Sheffield United from West Bromwich Albion in a £1.2m deal, Warnock reportedly told him he didn't want him anywhere near Sheffield United and to go and train with West Brom.
  • Stephen Hunt – After a match against Reading Warnock condemned the behaviour of the Royals' Stephen Hunt. He is said to have commented: "Hunt has proved on a few occasions that he's a clever type, and his challenge on Nick Montgomery earlier in the game wasn't clever either".[12] He also said he looked like he shouldn't be holding a pint.
  • Michael Johnson – In a 2005–06 Championship game with Derby County, Warnock reacted to a challenge by Johnson on Paul Ifill and was accused of playing a part in getting the opposition player sent off. This led to a face to face confrontation between the two and the Derby fans were incensed by Warnock's actions. Warnock asserted that the tackle was a bad one and that his reaction had made no difference to the outcome.[13]
  • Shefki Kuqi – During a 2007–08 Championship game with Wolves, Kuqi was spotted gesturing at Palace fans whilst being substituted. As a result the Finnish international was transfer-listed and fined two weeks' wages, with Warnock stating "I will be transfer-listing him immediately. I don't accept things like that, so that is the end of the matter."[14] However it was not, as Kuqi would return the following season after an injury crisis and would gain popularity with some Palace fans, despite again upsetting them by refusing to lower his wage demands at the end of his contract and subsequently leaving the club.
  • Phil Starbuck - Early on in the 1994/95 season at Huddersfield Town, when Starbuck was captain, his form was poor and Warnock took the captaincy off him, dropped him and told him that he was out "for up to 6 weeks", however Starbuck wasn't prepared to wait for this and handed in a transfer request.

Managers

  • Gérard Houllier – See Stéphane Henchoz above. Also involved an argument about United's allegedly physical approach against Liverpool in the League Cup Semi Final 1st leg, a match in which Liverpool had 5 men cautioned to United's one.[15]
  • Phil Thompson – See Stéphane Henchoz above.
  • Gary Megson – Following allegations that Warnock tried to void a 2002 match by reducing his team to six players. For details of this match, see Battle of Bramall Lane. Warnock later commented he "wouldn't piss on him if he caught fire."
  • Stan Ternent – A longstanding feud. Most recently in 2001, when Ternent accused Warnock of sending his then assistant manager (and current Sheffield United manager) Kevin Blackwell to listen to his half time teamtalk .[16]
  • Mick Jones – A long-term assistant to Warnock, the pair did not speak for several years after Jones opted to remain at Plymouth Argyle as manager after Warnock was sacked, rather than follow him to Oldham Athletic.[17] The pair reunited as a managerial partnership again in 2005 at Sheffield United and achieved promotion in their first season back together, and are now both at Queens Park Rangers.[18]
  • Joe Kinnear – Kinnear remarked that Warnock was a 'prat' after a 1–1 draw between Sheffield United and Kinnear's Nottingham Forest in 2004–05.[19]
  • Kevin Blackwell – Warnock told the press that he wished he'd had the money to spend on players that Blackwell had in the season 2004–2005.[20] Blackwell had previously been Warnock's assistant at Sheffield United for several years and indeed Warnock had helped Blackwell out for years, working with him at Scarborough, Huddersfield, Torquay, Plymouth et al. Another dispute occurred on 18 April 2006 in a match between Leeds United and Sheffield United at Bramall Lane when Warnock was sent from the touch-line after making a comment to Blackwell over a tackle by Gary Kelly on a Sheffield United player that Warnock deemed a bookable offence, and would have resulted in the Leeds player being sent off.[21]
  • Nigel Worthington – on 18 March 2006 Worthington apparently refused to shake hands with Warnock resulting in Warnock sticking two fingers up at him, an incident over which the FA charged Warnock with improper conduct.[22]
  • Wally Downes – On 20 January 2007, in a match against Reading, Keith Gillespie was sent off seconds after he came onto the pitch, for swiping Reading's Stephen Hunt in the face. After a protracted departure from the pitch, Warnock performed a stamping motion on the sideline directed towards referee Mark Halsey – referring to an earlier tackle made by Steve Sidwell which Warnock felt warranted a red card as well. Reading coach Wally Downes took exception to his actions, and pushed Warnock, who did not retaliate, causing a mass brawl on the sidelines. Both Warnock and Downes were sent to the stands as a result. Later Wally Downes admitted a misconduct charge to the FA,[23] was fined £2,000 and given a one-match touchline ban.
  • Gareth Southgate – Accused Southgate on Sky Sports News (shown 19 March 2007) of fielding a weaker starting XI against relegation-threatened Manchester City. Warnock claimed Southgate was "helping out" a friend, City manager Stuart Pearce.[24]
  • Rafael Benítez – Warnock has repeatedly voiced his dissatisfaction with the fact that Rafael Benitez fielded a weakened side against Fulham at the end of the 2006/2007 season (Liverpool at the time had nothing to play for in the Premier League, and were preparing for the Champions' League Final). Warnock felt the resulting Fulham win caused Sheffield to be relegated to the Championship. Even a year later, Warnock has failed to put the incident behind him and stated that "he wished that Benitez never won anything while at Liverpool"[citation needed].
  • Gary Johnson – Warnock claimed that Johnson and his Bristol City side "could have shown more sportsmanship" after failing to correct a refereeing blunder that saw Crystal Palace denied a goal, after Freddie Sears' strike bounced back out of the net, leading to the referee Rob Shoebridge awarding a goal-kick instead.

Referees

  • Jim Rushton - Warnock, whilst manager of Huddersfield Town, was known to dislike Rushton. Huddersfield played Lincoln City in the FA Cup and Warnock was disappointed with Lee Sinnott and someone being carded and wasn't happy when he find out that Rushton was to referee a league game between the same two sides and Warnock asked for him to be switched as it would give Lincoln "an unfair advantage". Before the game Rushton said to Warnock that he knew he had wanted him switched. During the game Warnock was sent off for a "non-violent push" on the linesman. Rushton also refereed the Autoglass Trophy Final in 1994 between Swansea City and Huddersfield. Huddersfield lost 4-1 on penalties.
  • David Elleray – Warnock called him a "bald-headed bloke", whilst criticizing his decision making ability.[25]
  • Graham Poll – Following what Warnock believed to be a mistake by Poll which led to Arsenal scoring in the FA Cup semi-final in 2003.[26]
  • In a Sky Sports documentary, Warnock agreed to be filmed in a personal documentary about his life on and off the pitch. During a match at home to Ipswich Town, Warnock was seen to swear at and verbally abuse one of the assistant referees (also telling the then Ipswich manager that the assistant 'had been his best player'), perhaps revealing why Warnock is seen as one of the more controversial football managers in England.[27]
  • Richard Beeby – Warnock heavily criticised Beeby in February 2008 after he played on for longer than the designated added time at the end of a match between Bristol City and Palace at Ashton Gate, which led to Bristol City equalising 25 seconds after full-time should have been blown, even claiming Beeby celebrated City's equaliser.[28] Warnock was subsequently charged with "improper conduct" by the FA.[29] In response, he "admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing".[30] Warnock was subsequently fined £2,000.
  • Rob Shoebridge – Warnock heavily criticised Rob Shoebridge and his officials after another disputed incident at Ashton Gate, when Freddie Sears gave Palace what they thought was an early lead. However Sears' effort rebounded back off of the stanchion at the back of the goal and out of it, leading to Shoebridge and his assistants signalling a goal-kick. Palace were then beaten in the penultimate minute of the game, and Warnock claimed that his side had been "cheated" out of a result.[31]
  • Trevor Massey – Warnock criticised Linesman Trevor Massey after an FA Cup tie with Aston Villa on 14th Feb 2010. Villa captain Stiliyan Petrov equalised in the 87th minute from a corner that video replays showed to have been wrongly given. Warnock was quoted as saying "I hope he (Trevor Massey) is suspended for a long time".

Fans

  • Nottingham Forest – Under Warnock's management, Notts County briefly rivalled the Reds (Nottingham Forest) in the early 1990s. Also, Warnock's subsequent team, Sheffield United, defeated Forest in a play-off semi-final in 2003.[32][33]
  • Leicester City – When Leicester restructured their debt after going into administration in 2002, enabling them to hold onto a string of Premiership stars who ordinarily would have been sold to stay afloat, they gained promotion to the Premiership, at the expense of Sheffield United, who had to make do with a play-off place. After United failed to gain promotion Warnock revealed his anger at the Leicester situation. Incensed that City could have got into such a state yet continued to compete at the top of the table, with no punishment, Warnock complained to the press, claiming United should have Leicester's place in the Premiership and the club should have been relegated or booted out the League. Any team now going into administration is automatically deducted 10 points, although even with this punishment Leicester would still have been two points clear of United, albeit with a far stronger team as a result of the move into administration.[34]
  • Sean Bean – In a recent tabloid serialisation of Warnock's autobiography, "Made In Sheffield", Warnock claims that minutes after the final game of the 2006–07 season Bean burst into his office, blaming Warnock for the team's relegation in a "foul-mouthed tirade" while Warnock's wife and daughter[35] were present. Bean denied this, calling Warnock "bitter" and "hypocritical", and arguing that he would never use such language in front of another man's wife and children.[36]
  • Bury – Warnock's reputation started poorly with Bury fans and finally was destroyed when he was seen applauding Bolton Wanderers' fourth goal in a cup tie. He had the accolade of receiving abuse from the whole stadium when Bury played away to Oldham Athletic where he was held in similar regard.[37]
  • Bristol City – Warnock claimed he was punched by a Bristol City fan, during chaotic scenes after Palace had been beaten by City in extra-time in the play-offs in 2008. Many City fans had great respect for Warnock however, after he shook the hand of their manager Gary Johnson before the final whistle had even blown.
  • Bristol Rovers – Rovers fans have a longstanding dislike for Warnock after several incidents while manager of Huddersfield Town.
  • Bradford City - Bradford fans have a longstanding dislike for Warnock after he was the Manager of their arch-rivals Huddersfield Town, most notably during a game between Bradford and Bury at Bury's Gigg Lane, where Warnock was Manager, where the whole ground were singing "We want Warnock Out!" even Warnock himself admitted that this incident was a first for him.
  • Crystal Palace - Some Palace fans were upset by Warnock opting to depart the Eagles for Queens Park Rangers in 2010 in the midst of administration and a relegation battle.

Chairmen & directors

  • Crystal Palace administration Brendan Guilfoyle claimed Warnock "lacked the stomach for the fight" to keep the Eagles up in 2010, resulting in his departure.
  • He seems to have got on very well with former Bury FC chairman Terry Robinson, given that Robinson moved to Sheffield United as chairman not long after Warnock had taken the manager's job there.[37]

Personal life

Warnock has been a lifelong supporter of Notts County and Sheffield United. He is married with four children. He lives in Beckenham and also has a home in Cornwall.

He has published two books, Neil Warnock's Wembley Way: The Manager's Inside Story with Rick Cowdery in 1996, which recalls Plymouth Argyle's Third Division play-off final win in the same year, and Made in Sheffield: Neil Warnock – My Story, his autobiography, published in 2007.
