Warnock Latest In The Frame

Warnock Latest In The Frame

Yesterday it was Shearer, today it's Neil Warnock, as the rumours continue in the press as to who the next manager of the Owls will be.

Former Newcastle and England international Shearer has already played down yesterday's tabloid headlines linking him with the manager's hot-seat at S6.

But today the shock factor is just as big, this time the Daily Mail linking former Sheffield United boss Warnock with a move back to his hometown with the blue and white side of the city.

Owls chairman Lee Strafford is taking his time over picking the right man for the job, and the Mail are reporting that Warnock, current manager of Crystal Palace, is high up on his wanted list.

Warnock has previously joked that he'd love to be manager of Wednesday - before spending a load of money and getting us relegated.

But rivalries aside, and although any approach for Warnock would more than split the Owls' fanbase, he has an impressive record during his stints with the Blades, Notts County, Huddersfield Town and Plymouth Argyle.

Warnock has also been linked with the vacant post at Premier League Bolton Wanderers.

And although doing a good job with Palace, steering them just outside the play-offs, the London club have experienced some financial problems of their own of late, and that could prove a factor in his future at the club.

Bet god Warnock is laughing his socks off. I would hate him to go to swillsborough, because he is probably the only manager who could keep your rabble in the division.

Gloucblade - don't you have some business to attend to in court? You must be so proud of your club, or "The mardiest club in the world" as most people know them! Decision to sue over WC bid is hilarious!!

Have to admit i think he would be the right man for the job if only he didnt have that disgusting piggy history!! No way he'd wanna come to us though i'm sure of that but then again, who is gonna wanna come to us in the situation we are in?? It dosn't seem to be getting any better on all fronts at Hillsborough lately and the situation is worrying!! I hate to say it but i think the next manager will be someone from the lower leagues or an ex manager trying his hand again... League One here we come :-(

I can't believe people are saying they would have him. I can't think of anyone worse to get the job!
05/01/2010 10:20:00
Even looking at the picture above of him angers me soooooooo much.
