Neil Warnock more often known as Colin due to an unfortunate anagram of his name (surname begins with 'w' and rhymes with banker as if you didn't know!) has once again been praising Burnley FC and Owen Coyle.
The former Blades boss and current manager of Crystal Palace has a regular column in Saturday's Independent newspaper and previously this season has already complimented the Clarets on their successful cup run.
In his column last Saturday, he gave further praise by naming Burnley as one of three sides he would choose as being Championship Team of the Year.
He was unable to announce a clear winner stating that Wolves, Preston and Burnley were all equal in deserving the award and that a similar situation also applied to Manager of the Year
'On finishing position and financial clout I think Alan (Irvine) and Owen (Coyle) have done just as well (as Wolves and Mick McCarthy)' said Warnock
'Owen's team start their play-off campaign against Reading today and given their cup runs will fancy their chances' continued our Colin writing from his hospital bed after a hip operation.
Interestingly there is no mention of his former club, Sheffield United who also finished in the play-offs nor Birmingham who took the second automatic promotion spot. Both these sides finished of course above both Burnley and Preston.
Feuds on and off the pitch between Neil Warnock and former gaffer, Stan Ternent in the past did not endear the former Sheffield United manager to Clarets fans but in recent times he seems to have gone out of his way to say positive things about Burnley FC. He is probably also mindful of the fact that we recently stuffed Crystal Palace 4-2 at the Turf coming back from two goals down, so we may have earned some respect for that performance as well.
Well credit where credit is due, thank you Neil for all the compliments this time round and now maybe once and for all it is time to bury the hatchet and drop the nickname!
