Managers League Table

It's not often that you see Manchester United, Arsenal and Everton at the foot of the table but that's where we differ! Here's thesackrace.com's alternative "League Table", based on the number of managers a team has had in charge over the past 10 years.

The managerial merry-go-round seems to get more frantic by the season and some teams have established a reputation for being quick to pull the trigger on their gaffer, this is where we reveal all...

Correct from the start of the Premier League era (1992-93 season for England).

The table has been compiled based on the number of managers who have been "in charge" of a team at any time since 1st August 1992. This includes caretaker managers, irresepctive of the number of games they were manager for, as some temporary bosses were in charge longer than some officially appointed managers. Where a club has had joint managers, this was counted as two individuals for the purpose of the league table.

Correct from the start of the 1992-93 season for Scotland.
