Look at this graphic. The two bullet points at the bottom are bonkers. People were still complaining back then about the style of play and ‘negative’ football as well.

Riverside Stadium Saturday 18th September 2021 Kick off: 1500hrs. Highlights to be shown on Sky Sports and Quest though possibly some links might appear for live coverage. Introduc

To be honest this idea that Neil Warnock is trying to put across of 'unprofessional' habits which he's picking up 2 years into the job really doesn't wash with me, he used to give his QPR and Cardiff

Agree 100%. Not sure why folk are still talking about Gibbo ‘wising up’, it’s all about what Scott thinks now. 

Fairly certain that Scott can't sack and pay off Warnock and Jepson and all without running it past Gibson.

Fairly certain I didn’t say he could.

I'm sure there won't be a knee jerk reaction, Scott and Gibson will likely be in discussions about the future manager anyway, so I doubt they will just sack without atleast looked at a succession plan.

Then it's not all about Scott. It'll never be all about anyone else with Gibson around.

Scott undoubtedly doesn't want Warnock as manager to begin with, it doesn't fit with anything he's been involved in previously.

Regardless though, Gibson isn't going to *** off his mate Warnock, he's not going to let someone dictate to Warnock how to do his job, and the idea that they'd try and annoy Warnock into quitting is ridiculous.

It’s not like they’d make a secret plan to get warnock to quit. The guy meant Scott will get on with the job he’s tasked to do, he will want to make an impression and get things going ASAP. His interference will probably annoy warnock who will most likely walk if results carry on as they are. 

If gibson didn’t want Scott to throw his weight about and make certain decisions then he wouldn’t have employed him.

Equally if gibson hadn’t given/promised Scott certain responsibilities then he probably wouldn’t have took the job. He isn’t just here to be a scout.

Judging by the melt down on here, FMTTM, plus comments in the Gazette, Warnock is walking a tightrope. Anything less than a sterling display v Reading will seal his fate. A live match to ponder the teams short comings with NW's histrionics on the sideline will leave a lot of unhappy campers.

Hopefully the team and Warnock are up to the challenge. UTB.

There was a real mix of feeling in the stands re; Warnock on Saturday. At 1 up and 1-1 there was quite a bit of support for him; a few songs sung etc. That changed really quickly at 2-1 down. There was even a bit of trouble in the south stand at one point. Didn't quite catch what what started it though.

Forget fancy Dan formations this squad is crying out for 442 two fast wingers ,Crooks and Tav in the middle ,a solid stay at home defenders ,find a goalie were all set.

The man marking system needs to be dropped ASAP. For me that's the main reason why we've been so defensively vulnerable this season.

Has Warnock done this with other sides? I've never been able to put my finger on why we look so open all the time, with opposition midfielders breaking through at will - but maybe this explains it.

Also explains why our 'press' is just individuals knackering themselves out and chasing shadows like a bargain bucket Leeds.

There are a lot of people wanting to sack Warnock every time we lose.  He even gets blamed for some of the guys not eating properly.

WE are paying these guys at least £150,000 a year to play football.  Dream job for millions of people ?  sure is but we arn't good enough.  I could manage to eat properly for that sort of money.

And if some one wants to give me a bollocking for not doing what he thinks is my job then on £3,000 per week I can take that

A number of them will be on significantly more than that and if any of them can't cope for that sort of money then I'm sorry but in my book they should be busting a gut to do it all, every day and every minute on the field on a match day

I might add that some of them are  and they deserve a medal for carrying those who don't or can't

It is not all Warnock's fault.  Some of our players need to have a look at themselves

We will get battered by Reading I think. I hope it is enough to make him walk.

Just looking at the next 3 fixtures, we've got Reading away which will be tough, Sheffield United at home and then Hull away. 

I think Warnock needs not only points but also a pretty big improvement in performances in those 3 games. 

Another poor performance in the next home game and God forbid a defeat at Hull then I think the writing is on the wall for him. 

We've got the international break after that and it feels like a time where we might have to make some decisions as a club. 

I never expected us to sack Warnock this season but I think he's going to be under serious pressure soon unless things improve.

    • 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? Still no. We've beat arguably the two worst teams in the league. NW has had a huge slice of luck having this run of games, 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? Yes. I know Neil (and by extension, the Gazette) have been making a big deal out of it, but it is nice to see Crooks take Martin under his wing and hopefully that helps Martin acclimate a bit faster. 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) Honestly, 6 minimum - with their form, we should be looking to beat both Cardiff & Birmingham. Luton are a really decent team this year though, so I'd happily take a draw down there. 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? That's like asking what's the better pain, being punched in the face or the nads. 5. Starting 11 and formation?                         Lumley Howson - McNair - Bamba - Peltier                  Payero - Crooks Tavernier               -             Jones/Hernandez                   Watmore                            Sporar A 4231 / 424 style formation with Watmore playing just off Sporar. Think with how well they've been doing, Payero & Crooks have to stay together, and IMO Howson was much better at RB the other night than I've seen him be in CM in a long time. 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy? Crooks I think, although it was very close!
    • Cardiff City vs Middlesbrough FC                                                              Saturday 23rd October – 12:30 pm (Sky Sports)                                                                              Cardiff City Stadium Current standings: Boro continue to climb up the table and we find ourselves in a reasonable 10th place. The Bluebirds are in free fall and Mick Mccarthy might be the most hated man in Cardiff right now. If he doesn't get something from this game he's most likely getting sacked. Views from various Cardiff City fans on social media/forums: "Weird that the bookies have us as favourites when we have lost 7 games in succession conceding 17 goals and scoring 1 and have the worst home record in the division. Fear we will get a draw and be stuck with MM." "1-1 if we are lucky and Boro are poor." "Much better yesterday, we need a bit of luck and maybe a fluky goal and the confidence will slowly return, we are better than those results show, McCarthy has been picking the wrong team for most of those games!" "I’d take Warnock back tomorrow." "Boro will be too streetwise, one of our ex players bound to score. Think I'd actually applaud Sol even if its a scruffy tap in, fair play to him." "If Bamba gets McCarthy sacked he’ll become Cardiff’s biggest ever legend" "I’ve been to our last 7 games home and away and seen us score 1 and concede 17. Much better performance tonight but still dire." "Mick McCarthy's recent record at Cardiff City... - Seven defeats in a row - Nine defeats in 10 - One goal in 630 minutes" "Boro will be an interesting game. Neil Warnock getting all the applause while Mick gets all the abuse. The way it should be" "It’s been 172 days since Cardiff last scored a goal in the first half" Questions: 1. Are you starting to feel optimistic about the season yet? 2. Should Crooks and Payero be our midfield partnership from now on? 3. How many points do you expect from the next 3?  Cardiff (A), Birmingham(H), Luton(A) 4. Who is the better manager out of Warnock and McCarthy? 5. Starting 11 and formation? 6. Who scored the 2nd goal against Barnsley, Sol or Crooksy?                                                         (These wins are coming fast so these threads are getting briefer 😁)  
    • In Tavs defence, what attacking coaches has he had to work with over the last few years?    Warnock, Pulis and Woodgate were hardly known for their attacking prowess. I’d say Robbie Keane would have taught him a thing or two but at 22 you can always develop and I’m sure with more chances he would get more composure.    Id probably say that the whole team could do with a prolonged period of dominance in games to get some more composure and match practice at shooting. Last nights game showed how in the final third we are so nervous in my opinion. Not just Tav but everyone. 
    • I think it was Patrick Kielty who once said that when non-Irish do Irish impersonations, its always the Cork accent they imitate. 😁
    • Just realised I've exactly the same games won/drawn/lost and points as Boro
