If your sole purpose on this earth was to seek out a personal embodiment of ‘chalk and cheese’ then you would be destined for a life of people looking at you with a certain air of ‘what the f***’ before slowly edging away. However, patience remains a virtue however odd your pervertions so if this is your frankly weird holy grail you’re in for a treat on Saturday afternoon, so long as you’re at the Keepmoat Stadium and somewhere near the dugouts.
Crystal Palace manager Neil Warnock is quite literally a negative of Rovers’ counter-part Sean O’Driscoll. Whilst SOD’s law is one of quiet understatement and a carefully thought out methodical patient approach, Warnock is more likely to be running round in circles and doing handstands yelling “Look at me! Look at me!”
You see Neil Warnock has unwittingly become a cliched characature of his own self. He moans about referees, he’s working class, thats his shtick. And of course he has to give the people what they want. Never mind the bad sportsmanship, the terrible example he sets, he’s a character right? And the game needs more characters yeah? Nope Warnock is a clown and thankfully there exists plentiful video footage to back this up.
A while back there was an online petition to get Warnock as Rovers’ boss. Doncaster have made a lot of mistakes in the past few years, appointing Warnock would have been one of the few to seriously test my support of the club. Thankfully sense and patience prevailed and we’ve been treated to the free-flowing O’Driscoll turn around and not this pillock.
