April 2016

Andy Hessenthaler (Leyton Orient): Tuesday 12th March (until the end of the season)

Andy Hessenthaler

Leyton Orient replaced player-manager Kevin Nolan with his assistant Andy Hessenthaler until the end of the season. Nolan had only been in charge for 15 matches, since January, but the club decided to hand Hessenthaler the manager's job as they bid to finish in the play-offs.

Hessenthaler has five matches to achieve this goal, with the O's currently two points adrift after four games without a win.

March 2016

Graham Alexander (Scunthorpe United): Tuesday 22nd March

Graham Alexander

Graham Alexander returned to the dugout with former club Scunthorpe United, with whom he started his playing career with. The Scot had been out of action since losing his job at Fleetwood back in September, but has now been lured back into the managerial arena with the Iron.

Alexander takes over from caretaker boss Nick Daws, inheriting a side 13th in League One, but only six points off the play-offs with nince matches remaining.

Mark Cooper (Notts County): Sunday 20th March

Mark Cooper

First Nottingham Forest, then neighbours Notts County, who wasted little time in finding a replacement for the sacked Jamie Fullarton, appointing Mark Cooper on a short-term contract until the end of the season.

Cooper, who has previously had spells at the likes of Swindon and Peterborough, takes charge of a side struggling for form following a run of no wins and six defeeats from their last seven games, a torrid streak which has seen the club plummet down to 19th in the table.

Paul Williams (Nottingham Forest): Sunday 13th March

Paul Williams

Nottingham Forest sacked Dougie Freedman and replaced him with coach Paul Williams until the end of the season. Williams will be charged with arresting an alarming dip in form, which has seen the Reds lose five of their last six matches, leaving the club 14th in the table - 14 points adrift of the play-offs.

Williams is very much an unknown quantity in the dugout, having only ever managed at USL Premier Development League expansion club Fredericksburg Gunners, and that was just for three months over six years ago, and he didn't even manage a competitive game. Meanwhile, he's held various coaching roles at the likes of Southampton, Wolves, and Brentford.

Rafa Benitez (Newcastle United): Friday 11th March

Rafa Benitez

Rafa Benitez returned to the Premier League for the third team after signing a three-year contract with Newcastle United. The Toon wasted no time in replacing the sacked Steve McClaren, luring over Benitez to St James' Park as they bid to boost their chances of survival.

Benitez, who previously managed in England with Liverpool and Chelsea, was most recently in charge of Real Madrid, who sacked him in January. Benitez now takes over at struggling Newcastle who are one point adrift of safety with 10 matches remaining, although it's worth noting that the Spaniard has a relegation clause in his contract.

Jon Whitney (Walsall - until the end of the season): Monday 7th March

Jon Whitney

Walsall appointed Jon Whitney as their interim manager until the end of the season following the sacking of Sean O'Driscoll. The first-team performance coach will be assisted by John Ward and Neil Cutler, with the trio tasked with leading the Saddlers to promotion up to the Championship.

February 2016

Nick Daws (Scunthorpe United): Monday 22nd February

Nick Daws

Scunthorpe United appointed Nick Daws until the end of the season. The 45-year-old had been in caretaker charge of the League One club since the sacking of Mark Robins back in January, and certainly impressed, leading the Iron to four wins from five matches at the helm.

The club are currently 13th in the table, but within just eight points of the play-offs with 15 matches of the season remaining. Meanwhile, Andy Dawson has been appointed as Daws' assistant in the dugout.

Neil Warnock (Rotherham United): Thursday 11th February

Neil Warnock

Neil Warnock returned the dugout with Championship strugglers Rotherham United. the veteran gaffer emerged as the favourite for the post following the surprise sacking of Neil Redfearn and went on to sign a short-term contract until the end of the season.

The Rotherham job will be Warnock's 16th managerial position, and his first since leaving Crystal Palace back in 2014, although he did spend some time in caretaker charge of former club QPR last year. The 67-year-old now returns to the club he played for (1969-71), with the task of keeping the Millers in the Championship.

Craig Hignett (Hartlepool United): Wednesday 9th February

Craig Hignett

Hartlepool United wasted little time in finding Ronnie Moore's replacement in the dugout, appointing Craig Hignett as their new manager. Hignet may never have managed before, but he has gained experienced as an assistant, both at Hartlepool under Colin Cooper, and most recently to Aitor Karanka at Middlesbrough.

Hignett now returns to Victoria Park with the task of keeping Pools in the Football League. The 46-year-old inherits a struggling side sitting one place above the relegation zone in 22nd, with 20 matches remaining.

Darren Wassall (Derby County - until the end of the season): Monday 8th February

Darren Wassall

Derby County placed Darren Wassall in charge of the first team until the end of the season following the surprise sacking of Paul Clement. The former Rams player - 98 appearances between 1992 and 1997 - had previously been in caretaker charge on two occasions, but will now step up to the plate for a third time as the club bids to win promotion to the Premier League. If Wassall achieves this feat then he will certainly do himself no favours in the betting to become Derby's next permanent manager.

Lee Johnson (Bristol City): Saturday 6th February

Luke Williams

Bristol City appointed Lee Johnson as their new manager, with the 34-year-old signing a three-year deal to replace Steve Cotterill at Ashton Gate. Johnson decided to switch his position at League One outfit Barnsley in order to take up the post at the Championship strugglers Bristol City, with whom he he will tasked with keeping in the division.

Back in November Johnson found himself under pressure in the Sack Race following a rotten run of eight league defeats in a row, however a remarkable u-turn in form since Christmas - six wins on the spin - propelled the Tykes clear of the dreaded drop zone and up into 12th, and within five points of the play-offs.

A faultless January saw Johnson claim the League One Manager of the Month award, while earlier this week he led the tykes through to the Johnstone's Paint Trophy Final after edging out Fleetwood Town on penalties.

January 2016

Luke Williams (Swindon Town): Thursday 21st January

Luke Williams

Luke Williams became Swindon Town's third manager of the season after his position was made permanent. Williams had been in interim charge of the first team following Martin Ling's departure on 29th December, and has now been told he will remain in charge until the end of the season.

Under Williams the Robins had won both of their matches, leaving the club 14th in the table, seven points adrift of the play-offs, and eight points above the relegation zone.

Kevin Nolan (Leyton Orient): Thursday 21st January

Kevin Nolan

Kevin Nolan ventured into the managerial arena for the first time after being named as the player-manager of Leyton Orient. The O's, who sacked Ian Hendon on the Monday, had been linked with the Italian duo of Paolo Di Canio and Franco Colomba, but in the end opted to place their faith in novice Nolan on a two-and-a-half-year contract.

The former Bolton, West Ham, and Newcastle midfielder had been without a club since leaving the Hammers in the summer, although he spent three months training with Orient earlier this term. A deal never materialised, but the 33-year-old obviously made an impression at Brisbane Road as he now becomes Hendon's successor in the dugout. Nolan takes charge of a side 11th in the fourth-tier, although they are only three points off the top-7, which remains the club's target.

Francesco Guidolin (Swansea): Monday 18th January

Francesco Guidolin

Swansea appointed Francesco Guidolin as their new head coach in an attempt to enhance their chances of survival. The relegation-threatened Swans, 18th, are two points adrift of safety after 21 matches, but hope that the Italian's shock arrival will be the boost they so desperately need.

Guidolin, who has previously been linked with QPR, will work alongside Alan Curtis who has been in charge of the Welsh side since Garry Monk departed last month, although the Italian will have the final say on team selection.

The 60-year-old has plenty of managerial experience in Italy, enjoying spells at the likes of Udinese, Parma and Palermo, while he has also only managed once outside his homeland with Monaco, meaning this will be his first venture in England.

Warren Feeney (Newport County): Friday 15th January

Warren Feeney

Newport County appointed Warren Feeney as their new manager. The League Two club were crushed at losing boss John Sheridan - who had only joined the club in October - to Oldham Athletic earlier in the week, but they hope that Feeney can step up to the plate as they bid to avoid the dreaded drop out of the Football League.

Feeney only joined the Welsh club in October, leaving his position in charge of Northern Ireland club Linfield. The 34-year-old was working as an assistant to Sheridan at Rodney Parade, before being named as caretaker boss following the Sheridan's departure on Wednesday.

Jose Riga (Charlton Athletic): Thursday 14th January

Jose Riga

Jose Riga returned to Charlton Athletic after signing an 18-month contract with the club. Riga replaced the sacked interim boss Karel Fraeye, who was sent packing on Wednesday following an abysmal run of form.

Rumours were rife that the Addicks had rapidly found their man in Nebojsa Vignjevic, much to the bewilderment of their supporters. However, the Championship club then performed a drastic u-turn, instead opting to reappoint Riga.

Riga previously managed the Addicks from March 2014 through to the end of the 2013/14 season, saving the club from relegation. The Belgian went on to have brief stints in charge of Blackpool and Standard Liege, before moving on to Metz back in June - a position he has given up in order to return to England.

John Sheridan (Oldham Athletic): Wednesday 13th January

John Sheridan

John Sheridan returned to Oldham Athletic for a second spell in charge after leaving his position at Newport County. The Latics wasted little time in finding a replacement for the sacked David Dunn - who was sent packing on Tuesday - opting to lure former boss Sheridan back to Boundary Park.

Sheridan becomes Oldham's fifth manager in the last year.

Sheridan, 51, inherits a side struggling in the League One relegation zone, 22nd, five points adrift of safety. The Latics are in dire straits, having taken a measly two points from their last seven matches, while they were also booted out of the FA Cup by Sheffield United.

In his previous tenure at Boundary Park (2006-2009) Sheridan led his troops through to the play-offs in his first campaign at the helm; losing to eventual winners Blackpool in the semi-finals. The following season the club missed out on the top-6, finishing 8th, while he lost his job the next term in March 2009 after a 6-2 thrashing at MK Dons.

Sheridan has since managed Chesterfield and Plymouth, while the lure of returning to Oldham means his three-month stint at League Two's Newport has come to a sudden halt.

Jamie Fullarton (Notts County): Sunday 10th January

Jamie Fullarton

Notts County found their man in Jamie Fullarton, who was named as Ricardo Moniz replacement at Meadow Lane. It's the 41-year-old's first venture into the managerial arena, although he's previously held various coaching roles at Bolton, Crystal Palace, Nottingham Forest, and Bristol Rovers.

Notts County sacked Moniz back at the end of December with the club 15th in League Two. The Magpies have since dropped down to 18th, although they are closer to the top-7 (nine points), than the relegation zone (13 points).

Fullarton, who beat off competition from the likes of john Sheridan and Mark Cooper, will be tasked with leading his new troops up the table, and if results go their way then a push for the play-offs could be on the cards.

Alan Curtis (Swansea): Thursday 7th January

Alan Curtis

Swansea appointed caretaker boss Alan Curtis as their manager until the end of the season. The 61-year-old was placed in charge of the first team back in December following the sacking of Garry Monk, and has since gone on lead his troops to one win, a brace of draws, and two defeats from five matches at the helm.

After missing out on the likes of Marcelo Bielsa and Jore Sampaoli the Welsh outfit opted to place their faith in Curtis as they bid to avoid the dreaded drop down to the Championship. At the half-way stage (well, just over) the Swans sit 17th in the table, two points above the relegation zone with 19 points from 20 matches.

As always, the fight to stay in the top-flight is likely to go down to the wire, however Curtis will be determined to rack up some valuable victories in January, in a bid to pull his troops clear of the bottom three.

Nathan Jones (Luton Town): Wednesday 6th January

Nathan Jones

Luton Town appointed Brighton & Hove Albion coach Nathan Jones as their new manager on a two-and-a-half-year deal at Kenilworth Road. Jones emerged as the scorching hot 1/10 favourite on Wednesday and proceeded to bag the job - beating off competition from David James and Chris Wilder - replacing John Still who was sacked in December.

The highly rated 42-year-old had been working at the Seagulls since July 2013, when he joined the south coast club as an assistant head coach to Oscar Garcia. After Garcia's departure the Welshman worked as a first team coach under Sami Hyypia, before taking charge of the first-team for two matches (W1 D1) following the Finn's departure. Under current boss Chris Hughton Jones firstly worked as an assistant, before returning to his previous role as first team coach.

December 2015

Darren Way (Yeovil Town): Thursday 31st December

Darren Way

Yeovil Town appointed Darren Way as their manager following half-a-dozen matches in interim charge. Way, who will be assisted by Terry Skiverton, replaces Paul Sturrock who was sacked at the start of December after a torrid run of form.

Way will be tasked with preserving the League Two club's Football League status, but he has his work cut out following a wretched first-half of the season, which leaves the Glovers rock-bottom at the end of 2015.

John Still (Dagenham & Redbridge): Thursday 31st December

John Still

Dagenham and Redbridge will see in the New Year with an old face at Victoria News, with the club unveiling John Still as their new manager.Still, who was sacked by Luton earlier in December returns to the club for a third time. Manager of the Daggers between 1992 and 1994, the 65 year old took the club out of the Conference in his second spell between 2004-2013.

Dagenham sacked Wayne Burnett earlier this month following a run of just one win in sixteen games which left the Daggers bottom of League Two.

Slavisa Jokanovic (Fulham): Sunday 27th December

Slavisa Jokanovic

Fulham finally ended their lengthy search for a new head coach - 49 days - following the appointment of Slavisa Jokanovic. The Cottagers had been on the hunt for a new gaffer since sacking Kit Symons back in early November, however they can now at long last venture into a new chapter in their managerial history after announcing Jokanovic as Symons' successor in the dugout.

Jokanovic, who last season led Watford up to the Premier League, had been in charge of Israeli side Maccabi Tel Aviv, but the chance to manage in England once again proved too irresistible to turn down.

Danny Wilson

Danny Wilson (Chesterfield FC): Thursday 24th December

Former Barnsley and Sheffield (both Wednesday and United!) gaffer Wilson has come in to replace Dean Saunders who was sacked in November after just six months at the Proact Stadium.

Wilson had spent three years as player at Chesterfield had last been employed at Barnsley where he was sacked in February after having lost their last six matches.

Kevin Keen (Colchester United): Monday 21st December

Kevin Keen

Colchester United are now managed by Kevin Keen who has come in to replace the departed Tony Humes on 21st December 2015.

This appointment will be Keen's first outright venture in the managerial arena, having previously held caretaker spells at West Ham and Macclesfield, and he'll be tasked with keeping his new club in League One following difficult start to the season.

Guus Hiddink (Chelsea - Interim Manager): Saturday 19th December

Guus Hiddink

Guus Hiddink returned to the Chelsea dugout for a second spell as interim manager. The Dutchman, who managed the Blues for the second half of the 2008/09, has been appointed until the end of the current campaign following the sacking of Jose Mourinho.

Hiddink previously led the capital club to FA Cup glory in 2009, before venturing off to manage Turkey. The Dutchman has since managed in Russia with Anzhi Makhachkala, and was most recently in charge of the Netherlands, although he'll be determined to bounce back with Chelsea following that disappointing spell at the helm of Holland.

Sean O'Driscoll (Walsall): Friday 18th December

Sean O'Driscoll

Walsall named Sean O'Driscoll as their new head coach on an 18-month deal following the departure of Dean Smith to Brentford. The experienced boss has been tasked with continuing the superb start to the season under Smith, with the club currently challenging for an automatic promotion spot up to League One.

O'Driscoll has previously taken charge of the likes of Bournemouth, Doncaster Rovers, Crawley Town, Nottingham Forest and Bristol City, leading both the Cherries and Doncaster to promotion. Meanwhile, the 58-year-old had most recently been working as an assistant manager to Brendan Rodgers at Liverpool.

Nigel Clough (Burton Albion): Monday 7th December

Nigel Clough

Nigel Clough returned to the Pirelli Stadium for a second spell in charge following the departure of Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink to QPR. Clough, who managed Burton Albion between 1998 and 2009, has been named as the man to replace JFH and lead the League One leaders up to the Championship for the first time in their history.

Clough previously led the Brewers to promotion from the Northern Premier League up into Conference, before leaving the club for Derby when they were 13 points clear at the summit of the division.

Burton will be devastated to have lost the popular JFH to QPR, but they will be confident that Clough can continue the superb work achieved under the Dutchman. Clough rejoins the Staffordshire side top of the third-tier who are currently bidding to win their second successive promotion after winning League Two last term.

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink (QPR): Friday 4th December

Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink

In the end QPR's persistence paid off as they finally bagged their man in Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink. The Hoops had been linked with a lorry load of gaffers since dispensing of Chris Ramsey last month, but up until this week they'd had absolutely no luck in luring any of them to West London.

Amongst those managers was JFH who'd remained adamant that he would be staying put at League One leaders Burton Albion, and that reports linking him to the R's post was simply pure speculation. However, in the end the Dutchman was sweet-talked by Rangers into trading jobs, much to the overwhelming disappointment of the Burton faithful, who were desperately hoping that he would continue what had been a simply stunning journey at the Pirelli Stadium.

November 2015

Dean Smith (Brentford): Monday 30th November

Dean Smith

Dean Smith traded life at League One side Walsall for the chance to manage in the Championship with Brentford following a successful round of negotiations. Smith caught the club's eye following a superb start to the season with the Saddlers, with whom he leaves 4th in the third-tier, just three points off the summit.

Back in September Brentford sacked head coach Marinus Dijkhuizen, replacing him with the former Everton midfielder Lee Carsley, who immediately stated he didn't want the job for the long term. lee carsley Carsley has since transformed the fortunes of the London outfit, winning the Manager of the Month award in October, but him time in charge will come to an end tonight away to struggling Bolton.

Paul Lambert (Blackburn Rovers): Sunday 15th November

Paul Lambert

Paul Lambert is now back in the dugout after signing a two-and-a-half year deal with Blackburn Rovers. The Scot, who had been out of work since leaving Aston Villa back in February, emerged as the favourite for the post early on, and has since gone on and put pen to paper , replacing the sacked Gary Bowyer.

Lambert, like many Villa managers of late, endured a disappointing time in charge of the troubled club, who could only scrape back-to-back 15th place finishes during his 32 months at the helm, while they were struggling in the relegation zone at the time of his dismissal.

Lambert, who has also had spells in charge of Colchester United, Wycombe and Livingston, undoubtedly enjoyed his best spell in management at Norwich, with whom he led from League One up to the Premier League, before steering the club to an impressive 12th place finish in their first season back in the big time.

Shaun Derry (Cambridge United): Thursday 12th November

Shaun Derry

Shaun Derry returned to the dugout with Cambridge United, replacing Richard Money at the helm of the League Two side. The 37-year-old's only previous spell in the managerial arena came at Notts County, with whom he managed for just under 17 months. During his time in charge of the Magpies steered the club to League One safety in 2013/14, but lost his job the following season in March after just three wins from 24 matches.

Derry now joins a Cambridge side who have endured a lacklustre start to the season, picking up 20 points from their opening 16 games, leaving them down in 18th.

David Wagner (Huddersfield Town): Thursday 5th November

David Wagner

Huddersfield Town wasted no time in appointing a new head coach after naming David Wagner as Chris Powell's successor in the dugout. Wagner's name sprung out of no where on Thursday, with reports catching fire that Jurgen Klopp's best man was on the verge of bagging the Terriers job. Fast forward to the afternoon and the Championship club confirmed the surprise news, as the former Borussia Dortmund U23 boss becomes the sixth boss of the Dean Hoyle era.

As a player Wagner won the UEFA Cup with German side Schalke and pulled on the United States jersey eight times. Wagner's began his coaching career with the 1989 Hoffenheim U17s, before taking charge of Dortmund's reserve team back in 2011.

After four years at BVB Wagner, who was also linked with joining Klopp at Liverpool, has decided to test himself at Huddersfield, and will be joined by Christoph Buhler in the dugout. Wagner will be in the stands for his side's Yorkshire derby against Leeds on Saturday - caretaker boss Mark Lillis will be in charge of the first team - meaning his first game at the helm will be away to Sheffield Wednesday (21st) after the international break.

Jackie McNamara (York City): Wednesday 4th November

Jackie McNamara

York City appointed Jackie McNamara as their new manager at Bootham Crescent. McNamara, who replaced the sacked Russ Wilcox, has his work cut out with the League Two strugglers, who are dangling dangerously above the relegation zone in 22nd, after winning just two of their 16 league games so far this term.

McNamara was last seen in the dugout with Dundee United, with whom he managed between 2013 and 2015, leading the club to 4th, then 5th, however a disappointing start to the 2015/16 season cost him his job at Tannadice.

Martin Ling (Swindon Town): Tuesday 3rd November

Martin Ling

Swindon Town appointed Martin Ling as their new manager. The Robins had been on the hunt for a new gaffer since sacking Mark Cooper on 17 October after enduring their worst start to a campaign in 10 years.

The League One strugglers will be hoping that the former Robins player can inspire a dramatic turnaround at the County Ground following a wretched run of form, which has seen the club lose nine and win none of their last 11 games in all competitions.

Ling, 49, is well known in Wiltshire having made 150 appearances for the Robins, and was part of the side that won promotion up to the Premier League. In 2003 the former midfielder ventured into the managerial arena with Leyton Orient - with whom he led up to League One in 2006 - and has since gone on to take charge of Cambridge United and Torquay.

Remi Garde (Aston Villa): Monday 2nd November

Remi Garde

Aston Villa found their man in Remi Garde who signed a three-and-a-half-year deal with the Midlands club. The Frenchman, who previously managed Lyon between 2011 and 2014, certainly has an immense task on his hands. Struggling Villa are rock-bottom of the table with just four points from 10 games; losing their last six in a row.

Villa will be looking for Remi to get the best out of the their French players, including the likes of Jordan Amavi, Jordan Veretout and Jordan Ayew, who have so far flopped. The 49-year-old's only previously experience came at Lyon with whom he led to French Cup glory back in 2012.

October 2015

Karel Fraeye (Charlton Athletic): Monday 26th October

Karel FraeyeCharlton Athletic appointed Karel Fraeye as their interim head coach while they begin the search for their next permanent manager following the departure of Guy Luzon, who was dismissed on Saturday. The 37-year-old previously worked at the club as an assistant to Jose Riga, helping the Londoners avoid relegation at the end of the 2013/14 campaign. Fraeye had been working at Belgian 3rd Division side VW Van Hamme who,

Steve Evans (Leeds United): Monday 19th October

Steve EvansLeeds United appointed Steve Evans on a rolling contract up until 30th June 2015. The 52-year-old swiftly replaced Uwe Rosler at the helm after the German was sent packing by trigger-happy owner Massimo Cellino. As a result Evans remarkably became the sixth head coach to work under the controversial Italian who has only been at the club since 2014.

Evans is desperate to transform the fortunes of the struggling Yorkshire outfit. The Whites, 18th, haven't played Premier League football way back in 2004, and their latest quest to return to the big time has started poorly, picking up just 11 points from their opening 11 games under Uwe Rosler, resulting in Cellino weilding the axe.

Darren Ferguson (Doncaster Rovers): Friday 16th October

Darren FergusonDoncaster Rovers appointed Darren Ferguson on a one-year rolling contract, 38 days after sacking Paul Dickov. The League One club certainly took their time in recruiting a new boss, with Ferguson eventually bagging the job after fending off competition from the likes of Lee Clark and Danny Wilson.

Ferguson takes charge of a Rovers side hovering one place above the relegation zone in 20th, with only a marginally superior goal difference keeping the club above the danger zone.

Neil Redfearn (Rotherham United): Friday 9th October

Neil RedfearnRotherham United appointed Neil Redfearn as their new manager, with the former Leeds United gaffer replacing Steve Evans on a two-and-a-half-year deal. The 50-year-old, who had been out-of-work since leaving Leeds, has been tasked with keeping the Championship strugglers in the second-tier, after inheriting a side who are 21st in the table

Redfearn previously managed Leeds beyween October 2014 until the end of the 2014/15 season, leading the club to a 15th place finish. Redfearn was keen to continue in the dugout but was overlooked in favour of Uwe Rosler.

Sam Allardyce (Sunderland): Friday 9th October

Sam AllardyceFive months after leaving West Ham Sam Allardyce returned to the dugout with struggling Sunderland. The veteran gaffer signed a two-year contract with the Black Cats, replacing the departed Dick Advocaat who quit his post on Sunday following a winless start to the season.

Allardyce, who has never been relegated as a manager, brings with him buckets of experience as he bids to lift the doom and gloom that is currently surrounding the Premier League club. Big Sam, who previously played for the Mackems in the early 1980s, has subsequently become the first man to ever manage both Sunderland and Newcastle.

Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool): Thursday 8th October

Jurgen KloppJurgen Klopp put pen to paper and signed a three-year deal at Liverpool. Klopp, who had been on a sabbatical, replaced the sacked Brendan Rodgers who was sent packing on Sunday following the Reds' 1-1 draw against Everton in the Merseyside derby.

Klopp returns to the dugout for the first time since leaving Borussia Dortmund back in May. During his time in charge of the German giants Klopp became a club legend after leading his troops to a back-to-back Bundesliga titles, a few domestic cups, and runners-up in the Champions League. The 48-year-old will now be looking to make a massive impact at new side Liverpool, who are craving trophies following a few barren years.

David Dunn (Oldham Athletic): Tuesday 6th October

David DunnDavid Dunn ventured into the managerial arena for the first time after he was named as Oldham Athletic's interim manager in September, am appointment which was made permanent on 7th October.

The former Blackburn Rovers player, who only joined the latics in the summer, replaced the sacked Darren Kelly, who was sent packing followng a poor start to the season. Dunn, 35, has no managerial experience to his name, but he draw on over 17 years in the game, as he bids to transform the club's fortunes.

Steven Pressley (Fleetwood Town): Tuesday 6th October

Steven Pressley

Pressley returned to the dugout with League One side Fleetwood Town after replacing his former Scotland teammate Graham Alexander. The 41-year-old, who had turned down the chance to manage Dundee United, had been out-of-work since losing his job at Coventry City back in February, but is now raring to go in his new position at Highbury Stadium.

Pressley certainly has his work cut out, inheriting a struggling side who have endured a woeful start to the season, with the 23rd-placed League One outfit scraping together just nine points from 11 games this term.

John Sheridan (Newport County): Friday 2nd October

John Sheridan

Newport County wasted no time in appointing a new manager after naming John Sheridan as Terry Butcher's replacement. Bagging the Exiles job is a late birthday treat for Sheridan, who turned 51 a day earlier, with the former midfielder stepping back into the managerial arena for the first time since leaving Plymouth in May.

Sheridan has also previously taken charge of Oldham and Chesterfield, leading the latter to both the League Two title and Football League Trophy. The former Republic of Ireland midfielder will now be bidding to change the fortunes of Newport, who are rock-bottom of the Football League with just five points from their opening 10 games.

September 2015

Lee Carsley (Brentford): Monday 28th September

Lee Carsley

Brentford named Lee Carsley as their new head coach after giving Marinus Dijkhuizen the boot after just nine games. Carsley, who had been on the managing development squad, has now made the step up to the manager hot seat for the first time in his career, although he doesn't know if he wants the job on a permanent basis

Carsley is a former midfielder who enjoyed a lengthy playing career at the likes of Everton, Derby and Coventry, while he also made 40 appearances for the Republic of Ireland. Since hanging up his boots in 2011 the 41-year-old has undertaken coaching spells at Coventry and Sheffield United, before moving to Brentford in 2014.

Graham Westley (Peterborough United): Monday 21st September

Graham WestleyPeterborough United found their man in Graham Westley who replaced Dave Robertson in the dugout. It marks a return to the managerial arena for Westley who has previously managed the likes of Stevenage (thrice), Preston and Rushden & Diamonds.

Westley's most fruitful period as a manager was his second spell in charge of Stevenage, leading the club from the Conference Premier up to League Two, while he also hoisted in the FA Trophy. Westley will now be looking to make an impact at Posh, who have stuttered out of the blocks in 2015/16.
