Made in Sheffield: Neil Warnock - My Story - Neil Warnock ... Renowned for his outspoken, colourful character, Neil Warnock here exclusively tells the story of his life in football. Warnock began his career as a player in 1967, and over the next eleven years played with a number of clubs including Scunthorpe United and Barnsley as a winger. In 1980 he took on his first managerial role with Northern Premier League side Gainsborough Trinity, and has since managed a number of clubs, including Notts County, Oldham Athletic and Bury, before finding his true home with Sheffield United. Perhaps the Blades' most famous fan, Warnock's loyalty to Sheffield United is legendary. Having been appointed in 1999, he became the sixth longest-serving manager in league football. In 2003, Warnock saw United to the semi-finals of the FA Cup and the League Cup as well as the final of the First Division play-off. He cemented his place in the Blades' history books by leading them back to the Premiership in April 2006, after twelve years in the First Division. He finally parted company with Sheffield United in May 2007.Neil Warnock tells his story with his trademark humour and passion, offering a fascinating insight into the journey of a football manager from the Northern Premier League to the Premier League.

As anyone with a good knowledge of football would expect, Neil Warnock has led a colourful managerial life and this book is excellent at recounting his achievements and scrapes throughout his career. As a Notts County fan, I am a huge fan of Neil Warnock for his extremely successful spell at Meadow Lane. I half expected that once I had read the chapter about his time in Nottingham, I would lose interest but this wasn't the case. The book takes you right from the beginning during his childhood and finishes at his current club, Crystal Palace. He describes in detail his playing and managerial career and the various enemies he has encountered along ... Read the complete review

Please note - part of this review appears on my ciao page. There are individuals in sports that only come around so often. People that get everyone talking whether it be how much they admire them or how much they dislike them; Neil Warnock fits this category perfectly. Controversy follows him everywhere, so it is fitting that he should produce an autobiography that i'm sure even those that hate him so much would be just a little intrigued to read. This is the story of one of english domestic football's most succesful and controversial managers. It charts his life from humble beginnings in Sheffield through an unglamorous but respectable playing career to ... Read the complete review

What fun we would have if Neil Warnock was England manager! Even though he's arguably the best English qualified boss we have when working with players, alongside Redknapp and Steve Bruce, like Cloughie, there was never any chance he would be interviewed for the top job, the FA preferring muppet yes men like McLaren when it comes to English guys in charge. But with five play-offs to his name, the latest being defeat with Crystal Palace this week, taking them from third bottom to fourth top in just five months, the really is none better for coming in to a club and lifting the team above its potential and ability. Warnock has always reveled in firefighting in lower league . Read the complete review
