This was a question on a radio call-in last night, and they failed to beable to answer it. Only name they could muster up was Southgate, who i didnt agree with to be honest, didnt think he done that well at Boro to be fair, i remember them battling the drop under him and then going down to the Championship.

I could only think of a couple, Mark Hughes isnt a bad manager, not the best out there but he has done pretty well where he has been. Steve Bruce has done ok in the top flight with Wigan & Blues, i was stuck after that.

If we're counting from 1992, not many, counting before that, there's a fair few others you can claim.

Didier Deschamps could take France far in the Euros this summer. The most successful though has to be Roberto Mancini surely. Fair enough, he didn't play that many Premier League games, but he's done the most managerial wise.

If given the players he originally requested, we'd be fine right now. We got a load of shit French imports instead though.

Macclesfield Town/Manchester City. It's complicated.

Did OK with Macclesfield and MK Dons.

Nigel Clough is doing incredibly well with Burton. Chris Hughton has done well overall.

Steve Bruce? Garry Monk is another possible one, maybe not though.
