Saving us from relegation helped.

Or they're just willing to trust his decisions whilst he's here, given his proven track record in this league...

There are as many reasons to not trust his judgement in the last 10 years or so as there are reasons to trust it.

Season starts 2 weeks today with our cup game. Not a lot of time if he wants players in before we kick off.

But more reasons to trust his management ability than to not over the last 10 years. 

As good as Pullis at setting up a team, but more offensive minded. 

1500 games as manager, with repeated success in this league 

We should have more confidence in him than any other recent manager.

warnock absolutely loves football. hes not staying on for the money like some older managers. i imagine him being away from the game would drive his wife bonkers. so when a guy like him says i can spot a player cant defend in 30 seconds. i'll believe he probably can but also assume he wont just watch 30 seconds of him playing to make his opinion. because i bet all e does is watch football when hes not on the training pitch.

You can sign players fairly quickly to be fair, the issue is getting them to sign. Plus we don't know how far along they are with potential deals, it's a fairly closed circle this summer with the dealings

People, myself included, are probably just hoping that he is making less mistakes than Woodgate and will comfortably keep us away from the relegation zone and win a few more games. I’m certainly not having any hopes that we will be close to the top 6. Probably somewhere between 10-16 place.

like when hall signed, out of the blue for us. but hall said its been touch and go for a while (or words to that effect) and he was happy to get it sorted finally.

Whereas you seem to think he's the antichrist or something, just continuous negativity.

People are hopeful; we had a terrible season under a terrible manager, Warnock came in and quite possibly prevented relegation and therefore he has some credit with the fans.  He has a decent Championship record, has turned teams around and made them competitive in the past.   He has made good and bad signings, as has every manager, but again, after Woodgate, there's a hope he won't just sign 3 players who never get a game.  Or offload decent players and replace them with midfield plodders a la Pulis.

Yes, there's a bunch of PR nonsense about him - but there always is with any manager (see Woodgate's Powerpoint presentation nonsense).

It may all go terribly - but it's just a bit of hope after years of awfulness.

It is all about expectations...Nathan Jones ensured that his club stayed in the Championship...Thomas Frank despite having a bigger budget and better players failed to get Brentford promoted....whose fans are happiest ....forget the football, we all know Brentford play more attractive stuff than Luton, but in the end one failed and the other succeeded...I don't care much for Warnock's views outside football, but if I spend the last month of this season relaxed, then that's fine by me

Leeds bidding for Rodrigo and Leon Bailey and we’re struggling to get Kevin Stewart over the line. It’s a cruel world isn’t it.
