Ever wondered how many managers have come and gone in English Football since Sir Alex Ferguson took over at Manchester United?

Fergie took the reigns back in November 1986 and has since gone on to win tons of honours with the Red Devils.

However, the same cannot be said of the other big English clubs as a whopping 923 managers have been hired and ousted in his 23 years stay.

Cutting it down to bite size for our readers, a much smaller sum of 193 rival bosses from the 19 Premiership clubs currently in the top flight have been ousted from their seats while the Old Trafford head honcho is still going strong.

There's Only One Fergie!

ONE Alex Ferguson, there's only one Sir Alex Ferguson.

But in the 23 years since the Scot took over as Manchester United boss there have been no fewer than 193 managers at the 19 other clubs currently in the Premier League.


And that's not counting all the caretakers left holding the reins from time to time.

While other clubs chop and change coaches at the drop of a point, their combined efforts in the silverware stakes barely surpass the groaning shelves of the Old Trafford trophy room since fiery Sir Alex's arrival in 1986.

Phil Scolari at Chelsea is just the latest big name to be blown away in his slipstream.

Only Arsenal have shown anything like as much loyalty to managers as United since November 1986, and that has been reflected in the amount of silverware they have won.

Chelsea's glory has been largely confined to a glut of trophies in the Mourinho years, while Liverpool's European triumph cannot disguise their poor League showing.

Great picture.....can't put it a better way than this. It clearly shows that given time results and trophies do come as in our case. Patience is the key to success.


Although this logic simply doesn't apply to the Scousers :D ;)

Wonder how long it will be before its a thousand, that would be pretty special
The rate at which managers are being sacked these days it shouldn't take more than 2-3 years to reach the 1000 mark. Yeah it would be special.
