    Warney wins us over...surely

    Some of us including myself were critical of Warne's appointment....

    I for one am eating humble pie.

    He has the team playing exciting attacking football and his management style seems to be liked by most of the players.

    He now looks like a manager with the track suit gone and I am increasingly impressed with what he is doing.

    Well done Paul Warne..and well done Mr Chairman.

    Now sit down with Warnes Nd get a proper contract sorted

    A good and sensible post. Much more like it.

    Hasn't he a rolling years contract? I think it was a good move then and I still do. I don't think he'll be going back to a fitness coach with us in the future.

    I still think he has a few things to learn,he's been through the bad times so he deserves the good times.Get some money spent on 2or3 good players of our own & move on to we hope better things.

    He's certainly starting to do well, even though I was one who didn't want him to manage I still had us for autos

    I wanted PW at the beginning for a number of reasons, mainly that he was articulate, intelligent and knew the culture of the club. He was thrown in at the deep end and inevitably struggled mainly because of the tools (and you can use that as a metaphor) he was given. His recruitment of players and staff have so far been good. He's cleared the deadwood and is playing good football. I hope that he receives the support he deserves in January from Board.

    Its early days yet, he still has the defence to sort out.

    However, the criticism last year was always silly given the tools that THE tool brought in. his heart is in the right place and hes a grafter who will try and do the right things

    Eating humble pie is one thing,but you have done a complete character assasination on the bloke for months,and if we lose a couple of games you`ll be doing the same again......so just empty words.

    We'll see. If he does maybe you can remind him of this but until then lets just get on!

    I was concerned about appointing Warne permanently due to the way losing on a regular basis could have been habit forming and a new broom would have, hopefully, remedied that. However my fears now seem to have been disproved.

    The 2 areas for concern are the defence, I thought Ihiekwe was shocking last night, and substitutions making no effect on the game, Bury excepted.

    If I was PW I would be knocking on Tonys door ever day until Moore and Towell had been signed and make looking for 2 good central defenders the top priority.

    It's not that easy though is it or the players would be ours, already had a bid turned down for Moore.

    Ihiekwe wasn't his best but I wouldn't say he was shocking, why did the subs make no effect ?

    I thought Ihiekwe was okay TBH. Was I dreaming but didn't Newell bring the ball out of defence, pass to Forde, who hit across where Ball sidestepped it for Frecks to restore 4 goal lead. Very ineffective

    That's what I was thinking but thought I might have read his post wrong

    Agree that Ihiekwe wasn't at the starting line last night but so were a few more until about 15-20 minutes. For me Ihiekwe has been one of the stand out contenders so far.

    His game against Portsmouth and Bury were very commendable so we can forgive him for a one off last night. I'm sure someone will have had a word in his ear after the match irrespective of the final result. A good proposition who will only get better as time passes.

    For me it wasn't PW but now I think he might just be OK.

    There were moans and groans when our Hecky was asked to stand in after the dwarf did one to Bristol City .

    No experience , just a youth coach blah blah blah .

    Sometimes we forget how knowledgeable people such as Warne and Hecky are , for a start both guys know the clubs inside out , fans , players and now Head Coaches , they know the culture and what the fans like to see , it goes along way .

    Hecky got caught out last season on a number of occasions tactically , sometimes picked the wrong side but he's still learning just as Warne is at the NYS .

    Hecky's managed the transition and a new squad very well , he wouldn't have managed this quite so well last season and you can see the development in him and I reckon Warne is on the right path with yourselves .

    There isn't a Head Coach I'd swap Hecky for I can tell you that , he's the perfect fit at Oakwell because he's one of us inside the technical area .

    I think you've drop on your feet with Warney and he's clearly getting to grips with a difficult job after last season .

    All the best to him .

    Good points animal.

    Warne is a miller he feels the pain when we lose in essence he's one of us.
    Just like Hecky does for you boys.
