Warnock’s Snodgrass woe still haunts Cardiff boss

Neil Warnock will have nothing but warm words for Robert Snodgrass when the Hammers meet Cardiff City at the London Stadium tomorrow night.

For the veteran boss admits that when the two parted company at Leeds where he managed the Scot he could have cried.

Discussing tomorrow night’s game he said: “It was one of my biggest disappointments in football. He’s a great lad and I’m glad that he has come back at West Ham..

“They have a great forward line and we have to go down there and compete, ” he told Sky Sports. “We don’t want to concede an early goal and get the crowd going.

With Snodgrass and Anderson doing so well make no mistake we have our hands full. They have a great forward line.

ClaretandHugh says: Nothing much changes in Neil Warnock’s world as he passes 70. One of the game’s maverick managers wears his heart entirely on his sleeve and that he should be talking up the Irons attack is no surprise…nor is it said for effect. That’s not the Warnock way. He tells it exactly as it is. His words on Snoddy are a confirmation of everything we hear about the lad who has obviously come back to form with a vengeance this season. Beyond his performances on the pitch he has become a firm favourite with many of those he has been serving on the Players Project. He has been travelling on the buses which bring in disabled supporters to the stadium and a couple have contacted us to say what a genuine fella he is and how he makes them feel so much a part of things. No praise seems high enough for the lad and we look forward to another top game from him tomorrow.
