tony gale's mic Posted December 27, 2010 Share Posted December 27, 2010 Easily top ten? One of the most outrageous statements that I have read on this MB. 1. Ferguson 2. Mancini 3. Wenger 4. Carlo 5. Redknapp 6. Coyle 7. Hodgson 8. Moyes 9. Houllier 10. Hughes All of the above are MILES ahead of Sam, they have either won titles (7 out of 10), been more consistent (Moyes, Hughes) or play a style of football which is better (Coyle). Which ONE of the above is Sam better than? Hughes. Yes Hughes was better for Rovers, although he arguably had easier conditions to work with - City weren't spending big, Spurs were in the lower reaches of the league for half of his reign, Villa as a spending force only emerged towards the end, the likes of Sunderland, Birmingham and Stoke weren't massively outspending us either. However he did a pretty average job at City for which he got sacked harshly and has been pretty shocking at Fulham. Not exactly known for champagne football either. Sam got Bolton to within goal difference of a Champions' League place, finished multiple times in the top 8 with them and arguably a better job than Hughes did with us, did an average job at Newcastle for which he got sacked harshly and has been a success with Rovers. Coyle will probably end up being a better manager than Sam but until he has a good two or three seasons' worth of success at the top level then you can't say that he's proved himself yet. Hodgson - did well with us one season but got us onto the road to relegation the next. Got Fulham to the UEFA Cup final - but then so did Schteve McLaren with Boro, performed pretty poorly in the league with an even worse away record than ours and has been doing a pretty bad job with the likes of Torres and Gerrard at Liverpool. Didn't exactly cover himself with glory at Inter and has never really performed well as manager in a major league. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
