The 74-year-old will recount memories from a lifetime in the game at the likes of Sheffield United, Leeds, Crystal Palace and QPR as he pitted his wits against some of the greats.

He was also a popular choice to succeed Danny Cowley in January, before going to Huddersfield and brilliantly guiding them to Championship safety.

Warnock’s Pompey connections are certain to be covered, as he’s joined by Blues legend Barry Harris on stage during the show.

Harris said: ‘Neil knows me from Pompey and having chats over the years.

‘I was contacted a couple of weeks ago and asked if I’d like to do it. Can a fish swim? Of course I’d like to do it!

‘It’s a football do at the Guildhall and I believe tickets have sold well so far.

‘Neil is popular and is a good football man, the game lacks characters like him these days.

‘He’s obviously doing his tour which is going around the country and I can see this being a popular night when he comes to the city.

‘I’m a little bit nervous but I’m really looking forward to it.

‘I remember when he came to Fratton Park in 2010 with QPR when Steve Cotterill was manager.

‘We were hammering them and winning 1-0, but he kept getting into the referee’s ear and telling him that they were getting nothing. Then the ball hit Liam Lawrence on the shoulder up at the Milton End late on, the ref gave them a penalty and Liam got sent off!

‘I’m sure these are the sort of things we’ll end up talking about on the night.’

Tickets for Neil Warnock - Are You With Me? are available from the Portsmouth Guildhall website and box office priced £31 and £81 for meet and greet.
