Maybe I'm alone in enjoying some of his time here, I enjoyed going to games during the minus 15 points early doors part of that season. Us against the world attitute. The team huddles were something else...we still get the 10 second one now with a few brief words but nothing compared to those days.

I'd love to see him back here now with Joey Barton as his assistant :)

There did seem a certain togetherness and bond within that side - it was almost Wimbledon - or Don Revie era Leeds ( without the trophies ) - assort of fuck you all approach . They were almost burned out though by the time they'd got to a very respectable position considering the 15 point loss . I do think any manager of the Bates era can't be judged fairly as they were so handicapped by Bates In terms of what could be done and who could come in player wise , plus Bates selling off any asset whatsoever . I really hate Warnock ...but look what he did before and after Leeds - its only really Leeds at this level he has failed at , and that is the Bates factor kicking in - NO ONE could succeed while Bates was around , the club just wasn't geared or set up for any sort of success .

I still don't always know when you're serious or taking the piss! But yes, that start of that season was highly enjoyable. I didn't like Wise but a good chunk of that was the closeness he had with Bates/prior incidents confirming he was a nasty cunt.

Its a serious post.....as always :thumbl:

Just imagine him and Barton here (two young fully gualified coaches as it happens).

Right I'm now Convinced absolutely that our new manager is a disaster in waiting

No it's not his anti Leeds comments, or what somebody described as an EDL appearance. None of that.

It's not the fact that he has seen the reaction to TCs heartfelt goodbye message to the Leeds fans and thought it would look good on him if he now wrote one to the Barnsley fans despite the crass lack of understanding that his choice to leave makes the sentiment hollow and engineered. None of that.

It's that a supposedly grown man has signed a serious letter expressing a conflicted rallying call ..."ECKIE" :brillsmurf: :bounce: :joker2:
