    John Sitton - just make sure you bring your fakin dinner.

    Martin "Mad Dog" Allen - Famously strippped off and swam naked across a river in pre season to prove a point to his players

    Terry Smith - An American who manged Chester City in the 90' and appoined 3 captains 1 for Offence, Defence and... dead balls.

    Danny Bergara - Managed Doncaster Rovers in their infamous 1998 campaigne. (we beat them 8-0 away in the league cup that season still a record I think won 10-1 on agg) Once swopped the numbers of the players round to confuse the opposition - and ended up only confusing himself when he asked why the center half was taking all the corners

    (There maybe a pattern in all the above).

    My son in law has dead balls, which is why they had no children.

    He was a big part of the American football scene in the U.K. in the Late-80s/early-90s, and some of his ideas - such as substitutions after ten minutes - didnít really transfer to the Association Football game.

    ĄI believe in socialism because it seems more humanitarian, rather than every man for himself and 'I'm alright jack' and all those arsehole businessmen with all the loot. I made up my mind from viewing society from that angle. That's where I'm from and there's where I've made my decisions from. That's why I believe in socialismď

    I went to a Chester game that season. Stood behind the goal. They played Shrewsbury - 91st and 92nd in the Football League - and drew 0-0.

    On paper at least, it isn't possible in the history of the Football League to find a worse game of football.

    Bruce Arena, because of his name.

    Somebody should name a stadium after him.

    I always like Dean Smith from his Walsall days. Was someone I wanted to see at Forest.

    I know O'Driscoll managed here but he was a favourite too.

    Quite liked Steve Coppell of yesteryear.

    Managers who have a process, and know that over time, if you get the process right, the results will come. Usually like it when they're likeable blokes too who seem to care about people.

    Always had a soft spot for Woy Hodgson too.

    Ray Wilkins was mostly a coach/assistant, but he always came across like a real good bloke who you'd want to work for.

    Did they pair up? And more importantly did they bring their dinner ?

    Sean Dyche - worked with Cloughie. His assitant is Ian Woan and he plays an old-fashioned 4-4-2.
