World According to Warnock | Episode 7 – Kings of Leon | @CornishZak

Welcome back Warno-brothers-in-arms. We’re 20 games into our Division 2 journey, and occupy sixth place in a tight playoff run. Join us as we play up to game week 36, and approach the ‘business end’ of the season.

I love Lionel Richie, but Motown-wise I love Junior Walker and The Allstars, the Four Tops, The Isley Brothers … that type of era. They were all of my time really,” Warnock on his favorite recording artists.

Tactical reminder, after injuries and loss of form we settled on this monstrosity..

Robbie Savage, loving a new lease of life in an attacking role makes it 2-for-2 as Bradford are destroyed at Aggborough. It’s a bumper crowd, too. Hopefully will stand us in good stead.

Our Windscreen Shield campaign is brought to an end by Millwall. It gives us a chance to concentrate on the league and FA Cup.

After some more wheeling and dealing this season, I have nearly £8 million in the bank. I decide, with a winnable cup competition gone, it’s time to start spending. I remind myself (against my CM programming) that Kidderminster is a short-term project and that immediate success is needed. I spend £1 million bringing in Brad Friedel from Liverpool to shore up the defense, and start a search for an established striker…

Speaking of FA Cup, fellow Division 2 toilers Preston are stunned at Deepdale thanks to our consistently good Belorussian, Gerasimets. Brad makes a winning start in his debut.

McClair junior breaks the assist record. It’s still bloody November!

Our striker search is completed after this Radioactive legend arrives. We really kicked The Bucket with this one; Our Sex is on Fire, the Pyros and Supersoakers are ready… Welcome Freddy Leon!

I honestly have not idea how we decided a move to Kidderminster was a good one, but I don’t care! He was on the bench at Blackburn, and had requested a transfer.

Freddy’s welcome to life in Division 2 starts at Boundary Park, where we beat the 10-men of Oldham, thanks to a late goal from our-Tony.

Freddy also fails to convert against Bristol Rovers – but the win a secured none-the-less.

The lads are Stoked that Freddy gets his Kiddy goalscoring career underway at the third attempt. Notice a steady increase in supporters.. is it the draw of a winning side, or new heroes to cheer on?

High-flying Fulham are held to a draw, with Freddy scoring again. He had seven shots – one more than Fulham – had five of those on target and converted one. Champ Manned…

We then get humbled by Liverpool at Anfield in the FA Cup. It’s an unhappy return for Brad, and a match-winning performace from opposition goalkeeper Bucci.

We’re back to winning ways at Roots Hall – our King of Leon again toiling and failing to find the net…

Freddy scores early and late at Wrexham to help us to a 3-2 win. It’s been a long time since we lost in the league.

We follow up by hitting the Tranmere scousers for four in the opening 23 minutes. I hope the lads would kick-on and score a bucket load, but they take their foot off the gas. It looks like some form for our-Fred at last.

I spoke too soon. We lose to Gillingham who do the double over us in the league. *Remember they were the side that hit us for nine! Robbie Savage is certinly liking his role on the Right of the forwards – that’s five goals since the formation switch-up.

That being said… I decide to tweak it again. I want Freddy to be the focal point of the attack, and so take a leaf out of Deano Emson’s Adrian Littlejohn formation. What do we think of this? It’s harsh on the young regens who will have to take a back-seat.

Freddy likes it… but the team can only draw with Mansfield. We do show character to come back from 2-0 down.

That’s better! A comfortable win and another goal for Fred. The regens also get goals with arrows from the AMC added and left side.

A double for Fred, as Chesterfiled are swept aside. He’s now scored in four games running.

It’s a double-double as the early pace-setters Watford are hit for three. We are really starting to put a run together to challenge for the auto-promotion places.

Okay, make that a ‘triple-double’. Fred’s loving the new formation – and so too are the fans to scream “Fred’s Sex is on Fire” from the Aggborough stands. Swansea are also in the play-off mix and we make them look ordinary.

The game brings up our 36 – and has us firmly in the auto promotion places! Dare I say it, since switching Robbie Savage to a forward right and adding Fred, we have been sensational. Can we reel in Watford?

Join us next time as we play through the remaining 10 games. Until next time, Colin.
