Neil Warnock Premier League

Tweets of the Week – Neil Warnock Edition

On the day his team were dumped out of the Premier League, Neil Warnock went viral, but not in the way you might expect.

The day has finally come. It’s one that we knew would happen before the season even happened, although it took a bit longer than anticipated: Cardiff City have been relegated.

And with their relegation, so too does Neil Warnock leave the top flight for another year. At 70 years of age it is unlikely he will be here again, although no one expected him to win a record eighth promotion last season when he was 69.

Next Sunday could conceivably be his last Premier League game ever, so we should savour every last bit of Colin while he’s still in the top flight. Or not, he’s a bit like Marmite, you either love him or hate him.

It was nice of him though, to become a meme on Cardiff’s last home game of the campaign, as he squared up to the television camera pre-game.

BT Sport were clever enough to put the clip online, which sparked the torrent of memeage.

There was a touch of the Liam Gallagher’s about it.

Warnock, in his basement, at 3am, off his head on ketamine as he devises new ways of getting the ball up to the big man.

Let’s play that again, but in reverse.

“Do I leave it in for another minute or take it out now and hope for the best?”

Jokes aside, Warnock’s impact on English football is second to none…
