    1 thought on “The Gaffer

    1. I ve long admired Neil for his attitude honesty and this book just confirmed my opinions It wasn t really so much a story but felt like a collection of anecdotes Maybe if I hadn t been following QPR at the time the book covered I wouldn t have given it five stars overall, I was though so it really enthralled me seeing the club from the inside

    2. The story of Neil Warnock s adventures and misadventures in football management well, the recent ones anyway Our author is how you d expect him to be from his public profile There s no great man behind the mask situation to ponder, and hence, looking at his experiences behind the scenes at football clubs will herald very few surprises It s important to stress that this really suffers from being a second book Our subject had already done his autobiography a few years earlier so most of his story [...]

    3. Myopic and one sided insight into the brilliance of Neil, sensibly focusing on the last three clubs of his career as ot stands, anyway As a QPR fan this was pleasingly slanted towards the Rangers years but the constant explaining away of defeats by poor reffing and other mitigating factors, rarely his fault does serve to remind of that aspect of his public persona that makes Neil difficult to warm to when he is not managing your club.Nonetheless, I do feel that Neil was nothing short of heroic d [...]

    4. Not a classic by any measure but Warnock details his time as manager of Crystal Palace, QPR, and Leeds Supporters of one of these teams like myself, QPR will appreciate the insight into their club If you are unfamiliar with English football many of the names, places and events described will not mean anything to you An easy read but not for everyone.

    5. I decided to read this book because of the reviews saying it gave a real insight into what it s like to be a football manager I agree that it does give a degree of insight, but the majority of the book relates to the teams Warnock managed This is hardly surprising, though I found large sections of the book boring as I had no real interest in the teams or their players.

    6. Enjoyed this.After reading The Secret Footballer, it s sequel and the Secret Player I thought this was a good insight into the other side of football, management.It s not just a look at Neil Warnock s career but also goes into life as a manager on the whole.Written in his inimitable style, the humour comes through.Worth a read if you like your footy

    7. Having never been a fan of Neil Warnock, I approached this book fully expecting to abuse him throughout the reading However, I was pleasantly surprised when I found that he is actually a very nice man A good read, very well written and each chapter had structure to it.

    8. A good light holiday read I ve never known whether to like or hate Neil Warnock, but regardless he is worth listening to Some interesting stories in here, worth a read.

    9. easy going read at neil warnocks look at football management through his career with some funny moments listed

    10. I really enjoyed this audiobook read by the man himself, Neil Warnock I am not a fan of any of the teams he s been connected to but this is a fascinating read listen for any football fan.

    11. actually got as library book Quite interesting but not the insightful story I was expecting Ferguson s memoirs much better.
