Former Sheffield United manager Neil Warnock will tell it all at City Hall show UK News

Although a bit too close to the Sheffield Wednesday ground for some people’s tastes, his position as assistant office manager paid a regular salary of £6 a week.

Warnock’s boss, whom he called Mr Highland, told him it was foolish to give up the security of a full-time job to sign for Chesterfield.

Instead, he is expected to stay put and in five years he could be earning £20 a week.

After around 300 appearances as a player, he moved on to management, where he marked the game with eight promotions at 16 different clubs and countless memorable moments.

Former Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock has managed more games in English professional football than anyone.

Now football fans can hear about some of the hundreds, if not thousands, of memories he made along the way when he appeared at Sheffield Town Hall on September 16.

“I remember my sister coming here to watch the Beatles, screaming,” he says.

“They were bottom of the pack with the Beatles, I don’t think they’ll do that with me!”

Love him or hate him, Warnock remains one of the greatest characters in the beautiful game.

Few, if any, managers would threaten to fine their players for leaving a nightclub early. But he did things differently – and it generally worked.

The lifelong Blade has managed more games in English professional football – 1,603 – than anyone else.

‘No Holds Barred’ is the promise of his Sheffield show, not that the 73-year-old has ever shied away from speaking his mind.

Audience participation will also be encouraged and special guests, including some from his eight years at Sheffield United, are lined up.

“I like to talk about my career and the different ups and downs,” adds Warnock, “I like to make people laugh.

“The stories keep coming out. The other day I was talking and while I was talking two or three more came out that I never even thought of.

There’s even room for Sheffield Wednesday fans at the show, which is set to expand into a national speaking tour.

“Why not?” he said with a smile.
