I am hoping we have now have a management team that will motivate the team and raise the passion levels back to where they once were.

Love him or hate him I think Neil Warnock falls in to that category and this quote ahead of the Man City v Cardiff cup -tie made me smile, honest if nothing else:

"It's been the easiest week of training. We've just been chasing shadows to get used to it. We haven't had a ball out at all. It's been great. We've just been throwing a few bits of paper up in to the wind for the players to chase."

Clearly tongue in cheek but expectations managed, pressure off players.

We've certainly been p*ssing into the wind recently.

For I'm concerned there has only been one true inspirational manager.

Good list! I would choose 4 or 5 of them too. I'd add Mark Cooper & Uwe Rosler, just for giggles.

I'd like to see Micciche in the centre of all 'official' photos such as that. Just to make it unequivocal that he is the leader.

He's wearing a suit. It's the badge of office.

Neil Lennon is the guy. Add Craig Levein to that list. Disgrace of a bloke.
