Anton Hails Warnock

Anton Hails Warnock

Anton Ferdinand has heaped praise on Neil Warnock in the wake of Queens Park Rangers win over local rivals Chelsea.

Rangers were victorious over their local rivals courtesy of a Heidar Helguson first half penalty - in no small part down to manager Neil Warnock according to the R's defender.

'Playing under a Manager who wants the best for you and at the same time wants to get the best out of you goes a long way in football. It really helps,' he told QPR.co.uk

'The gaffer has been brilliant since the day I arrived at the Club.

'He makes every one of the lads go out on the pitch feeling ten feet tall.


While Chelsea continue to point to referee Chris Foy for their ills on the day, it should be noted that QPR were the side on top prior to Jose Bosingwa's tug and Didier Drogba's moment of madness.

Anton himself performed commendably to keep the likes of initially Drogba then Nicolas Anelka at bay and keep a clean sheet against the title hopefuls.

Once again he was quick to praise the attributes of the manager for one of the main reasons why Rangers were able to record their first win over Chelsea in 16 years.

'He gives us all great confidence and that's key in the Premier League.

'If you're not confident in the Premier League then there's no point in playing.

'When you've got a Manager who gives you that confidence and does it with such ease, you're already half way there.'


In other news Anton Ferdinand has spoken to the club in regards to alleged racial abuse by England captain John Terry - the case has now been referred to the FA.

'In other news...' Are you having a laugh? That is, with respect, a slightly bigger story than Anton telling everybody that the manager who bought him recently is a good bloke. And...er....it's not a legal case and subjudice. Why has Ferdinand made no statement either way, three days after the event? And, most of all, why aren't you giving the reptile that is Terry the clog he deserves at any opportunity?

lordjohnny: To be fair to Boxer, if there is a story to be put out, he will do it. The statement that the case has been referred to the FA is the only fact that is demonstronstrable at this time. We all know what we saw but it cannot be printed here until proven, as libel laws apply to websites as they do to printed papers!

Hi lordjohnny - I could write an article but what would I say? Nothing substantial has happened other than the formality of the club taking it to the FA really.

Sorry chaps. Of course this article was much more substantial, telling us that the gaffer instills (or installs as most footballers would say) confidence which is apparently vital in the Premier League. Fascinating. By the way, you can write about THE story without recourse to Messrs Sue Grabbit and Run. You could pontificate on why Ferdinand hasn't come out yet with any response, and why apparently he's not answering Terry's calls. All very murky methinks.

Lordjohnny - Ferdinand has probably been given strict instructions NOT to say anything - it doesn't take an article here to realise that his silence is precisely coz Messrs Sue, Grabbit & Run have told him to say nothing!

Ferdinand could come out and say something yes. But with a police investigation ongoing it would probably be unwise to do so. All will out eventually I guess. I think it's a wonderful success story what our manager is doing and while I don't pen backslapping articles too often I think this is an example of the sprint engrained in our camp at present - despite rumours to the contrary.

Unlike the Chelsea lot I think Anton's handled this with a lot more dignity and is doing the right thing by not talking about the incident directly.

I don't see how Chelsea are handling it badly. Ferdinand hasn't got anything to lose by doing what he is doing. You're making him sound like a martyr. He's even said he didn't hear anything. Terry on the other hand has everything to lose so the pressure in this case is clearly going to be on Terry and Chelsea. I really haven't heard anything from either which shows they are handling it badly.

All I'm saying is Ferdinand would automatically pre-empt any investigation by announcing that nothing untoward was said or done, Terry ain't a racist, and that would end the matter. I appreciate you posting my comments though chaps. Unlike that North Korean lot at Vital Chelsea who took down the Terry article when they didn't get total unalloyed praise for their wonderful human being of a captain. Shame on them.

Tjay - handling the matter badly could include publicly announcing the matter was closed before bothering to contact the other club involved and ensure it was resolved.
