Who is Boro's manager?

Boro's manager Neil Warnock was born in Sheffield in 1948. He had a playing career but never reached particularly lofty heights. Warnock retired at a relatively early age in order to pursue a career in management where his talents laterally lay. Over the course of nearly four decades, Warnock has forged a reputation for himself as one of the most consistent yet divisive coaches in the game. He is currently situated in North Yorkshire with Middlesbrough.

In modern times, Warnock's arguably most impressive feats were achieved at Sheffield United, the club he has supported all his life. He took over the reins at the Blades just before the turn of the century in 1999. His first few seasons were a resounding success, Sheffield United reached the semi-finals of both the FA Cup and League Cup, as well as narrowly missing out Wolves in the old Division One Playoff Final.

In 2006, Warnock's United were promoted to the Premier League, one of what seems like countless promotions to the top flight for Warnock who holds the record for promotions out of the Championship. The following season, the Blades performed better than expected, bravely battling relegation until the final game of the season when West Ham sent them down. Their relegation was the cause of a great deal of subsequent controversy - Sheffield United claimed that Carlos Tevez, the Argentinean who had scored the goal for West Ham to send Sheffield down, had been the subject of an illegal transfer. The legal battle has only recently been resolved.

Following relegation, Warnock resigned. He returned to management with London club Crystal Palace where he would spend three seasons. In his first campaign, he led Palace to the playoffs, but they were vanquished in the semifinals by Bristol City. Warnock was unable to do enough to get Palace out of the Championship and he and the club parted ways at the end of 2009/10 season.

Warnock went on to join another London club, QPR. He saved the club from relegation in his first campaign before going on to build a team that would eventually convincingly win the division, featuring talented players such as Adel Taarabt and Jamie Mackie. In their first season back in the Premier League, Warnock was performing reasonably well - he kept the R's out of the relegation zone, but this was not enough for owner Tony Fernandez who it is rumoured wanted a more high profile manager to match his ambitions.

He would go on to move back to Yorkshire with Leeds United where he would spend two disappointing seasons, finishing 14th and 18th respectively before being dismissed. The next couple of years would see him briefly return to both Crystal Palace and Queens Park Rangers. Both spells were brief, in the former he was appointed to try and rescue Palace from a relegation dogfight but was unsuccessful and was subsequently dismissed, in the latter his role was only a temporary one.

Rotherham United came calling for Warnock's services in February 2016 with the manager saying it would probably be his last season in the game. He endeared himself to the Rotherham fans who saw Warnock as helping the club punch well above its weight, they were desperate to keep him on as manager. It wasn't to be however, Warnock maintained that he wanted one more season as a manager but he was given what he saw as a better offer from Cardiff City, the club where Warnock remains to this day.

In his first season at the helm, Warnock's Cardiff finished mid-table in 12th place. The following season they excelled, finishing 2nd only to a Wolverhampton side widely regarded as one of the best to ever be promoted from the Championship. Despite their sterling efforts the previous season, Cardiff were the early favourites for relegation in the Premier League in 2018/19. They had the smallest budget in the division and arguably the weakest squad. However, they were only relegated with one round of fixtures to spare and battled bravely throughout.

On 23 June 2020, Warnock was appointed manager of Middlesbrough.
