    "Neil Warnock dangerously close to being sacked."

    Fantasy Sports sounds about right.

    Indeed.
    I see heís favourite to be the next PL sacking at 4/1 on skybet as of last night.
    Load of shite, or at least I hope!

    What a load of crap!

    Re: "Neil Warnock dangerously close to being sacked."

    Vinny elbowed Paul Trollope after just two wins from the first 11 league games of a new season, and it was rumoured he took a lot of persuading not to press the eject button after the 8th game following another home loss to Leeds. It's not hard to envisage him getting on the blower to Big Sam should no wins be forthcoming from the next six games.

    Ridiculous

    Re: "Neil Warnock dangerously close to being sacked."

    It depends on who's idea it was to only spend 26 million on Championship players. If it was NW's he should go. If it was Tan's he should shut the **** up and let NW get on with it.

    Perhaps you should have checked more than just your spelling when editing.. which you still got wrong

    Regarding the OP, ridiculous at this time to be even mentioning it, especially once the fixtures were announced knowing the task ahead.

    I'm sure many of us know what has gone on with previous managers and can draw our own conclusions of what will happen should certain results go against us, but most would prefer keep scrum rather than fuel the sensationalist speculation.

    Re: "Neil Warnock dangerously close to being sacked."

    If Tan had backed him, and by backed him I mean to the level of spending that Wolves and Fulham have done, then I could half believe this but not with what we started with and what we added to it.

    It was no secret we needed a proven striker and a right back and arguably more but no manager would go in light if they didn't have to and have to work with what they are given. I think Warnock has done reasonably well given what he has brought in. I can't see anybody else doing too much better with this squad.

    I honestly thought Tan would free more finances for Warnock. I know many have gone with the once bitten, twice shy argument but did we really spend that much last time out. Most of what we did spend we saw back too, obviously ignoring the whole Cornelius situation.

    Re: "Neil Warnock dangerously close to being sacked."

    What a load of CRAP ....... I'd be surprised if Tan gets rid of Neil.

    He's been absolutely amazing to the club - Not as if we were favorites to beat the drop in the first place

    Re: "Neil Warnock dangerously close to being sacked."

    It sounds unlikely, as it looks like VT's strategy this time is to just try and avoid relegation and hopefully gradually build up a better team over time. This start will not be a surprise to him or anyone.

    It's started - surely you've noticed our position is exactly where it needs to be for this to be the case? Just within touching distance of safety which we'll achieve on the final day by drawing whilst our rivals for relegation mess up their effort by losing to teams they should probably have beaten.

    Very appropriate I think...

    You wouldn't think so, although pre-season Vinnie told the Malaysian press: “We have got Newcastle, Arsenal and the champions, Manchester City at home and Bournemouth, Huddersfield and Chelsea away. We need to get off to a good start, but realistically speaking, I will be happy if we can get six to nine points from the maximum 18 that’s on offer.”

    That seemed very optimistic when it was published. It seems even more so now.

    Trying to work out what Tan is thinking is always a risky business, but I'd be surprised if even he is considering getting shot of Warnock at this early stage.

    To be fair, if we'd been able to take advantage of 10-man Hudds and Newcastle then that would have been right. I don't think we're far off where we need to be - it's just that the players themselves need to believe they are good enough before we'll see from them what they were capable of delivering in the Championship. It's a really delicate balancing act now. Beat Burnley on Saturday and I think they'll start to relax a bit. Lose and we're in trouble...

    You can believe youíre good enough but that only goes so far. Having quality and quality options in most parts of the squad is what will keep you up. Maybe if you have manager and squad longevity and a football philosophy that suits the PL you can stay up. I feel like we have none of the above, or at least not enough of it. Our football philosophy suits the championship and maybe you can get away with and intense diresct style of play in the PL but you have to have the players to carry that out to perfection. I feel like the players we have at the moment are not quite technically good enough to outplay the opposition and arenít quite big enough to outmuscle them either.... Iím thinking Murphy, Reid, Ward, Zohore, Hoylett. As far as Warnock goes, he might be a likeable character but Iím not sure he has the tactical acumen for elite football in the modern era.

    I canít see Alardyce rescuing City with the squad heíd have. And I canít see Tan throwing money at the problem at xmas if he didnít want to in the summer.

    Keep Warnock. Bring in a higher profile striker in January and see if we can fight our way to 17th spot. Team spirit is our most valuable attribute at the moment. Take Warnock out and I think you can kiss goodbye to any hope of staying up.

    You think Murphy and Reid aren’t good enough for the PL? I reckon they are or will be.

    Re: "Neil Warnock dangerously close to being sacked."

    If Warnock was sacked who would take over? Allardyce was mentioned earlier but he would take one look at the squad and say "No thanks" as would others apart from the desperate. It is not Warnock's fault we are where we are. The lack of investment is the issue but having said that I am glad that we have not thrown money at the problem. Nobody in sound mind can blame Tan for not spending more than the 25% of his overall wealth he has already invested. The irony in all this is that had Warnock failed to get promotion last year but finished in the play offs he would be safe.

    To be fair we haven't created an abundance of chances so far this season, apart from a few misplaced headers by Zohore I don' think any striker could have made a difference.

    That's not the point I was trying to make. I think they very well might be. We spent 22M we spent on them, we should have spent another 22M on two experienced EPL players. NW has essentially "done a Malky" and bought two players for the future, when we should have been whatever we could to not get relegated.
