I’ll preface this with: I’m not saying Warnock is shit…so don’t get excited.

But. Warnock has managed, what? 15 clubs? There’s no coincidence that his average tenure over that period is 2 years. The best we could’ve hoped for was a promotion, followed by a relegation and subsequent sacking. Only to be replaced by Andy Thorn.
Nonsense

Warnock was excellent at getting promotion but was an abject failure at the top level. You are correct in your assessment.

As mentioned, one in 10 years. Time for retirement.
Until Robins got us promoted from L2, he had not had promotion with any of his clubs I believe. perhaps he should have retired

You do realise Warnock is 72?

He'll get sacked soon and that'll be it. He's done.

It's so nice to be able to live in the moment for once and really enjoy the win today. It has put me in such a good mood.

Robins said something after the game regarding it, but the application and effort is really impressing for me. They all have been fighting and it paid off. Perhaps that was the small difference than against QPR, who I thought were similar to 'Boro in the sense that that were a good side too. We competed but faded a bit in that game, but today we were slightly wiser, had a bit more belief, and you can't really knock anyone without having to be extra anal.

Absolutely buzzing tonight and I hope all you are too.

It actually feels like we're an established Championship side. Its an unbelievable turn around. We've made massive strides since the days of scratching around in League 2 playing Forest Green and Yeovil.

Agreed.

Last year although we obviously survived comfortably in the end and had some really good performances you could tell that we were a newly promoted side.

Pretty much every other team looked a step above - quicker, stronger, more skilful.

Now, we feel like one of them. Blackpool reminded me of us last year, we were clearly just a class above them.

You love to see it.

Also operated on a limited budget and played in Brum for two seasons, remarkable manager for us

You spent weeks slagging the bloke off day after day and he’s rammed your criticism right back down your throat. I’d be very sheepish if I was you.

Absolutely loved that today, every player was on it and when you're playing a Warnock side you have to be, i couldn't believe that triple save by Moore, Vic took his goal brilliantly, i thought he'd overcooked it going round the keeper and Waghorn got the goal his performance deserved.

Can you not read the many other posts I’ve made on him since the season started?
We could also read when you hijacked every thread saying how much of a shit signing he was. You have no credibility

Great result, always worried about conceding so nice to see they can fluff chances as well as our boys. Defence very firm - thought Faz was a rock and covered as much ground as someone 10 years his junior. I would have wanted MR to start with Vic and Godden as looking through my tinted specs I want them to do well as a partnership, but glad the gaffer knows more than me and pleased for Wags, showed good strength and hopefully that will do his confidence some good.

Don't get why Vic was giving it the ears when he scored, thought he knew we all love him?

Well done City and also to the fans, good vibe we're getting now.
