Championship Letters 5: Neil Warnock as the Cyclops
Rafa Benitez’s unlikely recent defence of the one eyed tendency among managers has only served to remind us of the prevailing habit among Premier League bosses to see things only from their own point of view. The humble Championship, by contrast, is mercifully bereft of this selfism. Fans of the cult of the individual are nonetheless still well served by the presence in the managerial phalanx of one Neil Warnock. The ex-Gainsborough Trinity boss sees Crystal Palace’s current problems from a perspective that would do justice to that legend of Greek mythology, the primordial race of giants, the Cyclops. Neil was equally bemused by Leicester City going into administration a few years ago, although his take on matters was quite different then.
