Worst Managers from the Premier League era?

Recommended Posts

football forum

Paul Ince (Blackburn Rovers), John Carver (Newcastle United), Tony Adams (Portsmouth)? Who are the worst managers to have ever graced the Premier League in your opinion?

Steve McClaren? 

Perhaps he doesn't make the worst of the worst but his effort with us was nothing short of horrendous.

Iain Dowie has to be worth a shout. Relegated twice as a manager, once as assistant and one club went down after sacking him in the relegation zone.

4 Premier League relegation's in 5 years wasn't it?

I thought Carver was decent tbh. Made the best out of a bad situation, with zero support from the fans.

Carver to my memory. They were spectacularly bad.

Fitting that I've just seen this about Mark Hughes;

 

This in a nutshell, I'd be surprised if Stoke aren't fighting to stay up next season with him still in charge. I won't say he's the worst manager however because he does do a decent job of building a team, but after that first season they always collapse, ALWAYS. I think if we had a decent manager we'd be competing more realistically for 7th. I mean how do you let a player like Bojan go on loan??!?! Have you seen the players Stoke has had in the past, we've had weaker squads and done better, now we have a technically decent team and can't play technical with him, and can't even play Pulis's Hoof the ball up tactics because our defense is a mess. I don't think it's the players completely I think it's the manager honestly... But this isn't the right thread for this tangent. 

 

At the moment I'd still say Carver was the worst. I'd take AVB and even Grant over Hughes at the moment...

Terry Connor had a win ratio of 0% and managed for a third of the season didn't he?

Yeah because there is nothing worse than being Stoke City and finishing in the top half every season...

We're 13th and could slip down to 17th by the end of the seasons easily.

AVB certainly shouldn't be mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Carver, Avram, Kenny Dalglish and Mick McCarthy.

Daglish?? The same Daglish who won the premier league with blackburn fucking rovers? I think that's a bit of a silly shout, and this us me speaking with my non biased head on. 

 

Alan Shearer hasn't had a mention yet, surprisingly.

Mick McCarthy is another daft shout, had his bad spells but he's certainly not bad enough to be ranked amongst the worst.

Egil Olsen, Lawrie Sanchez, Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, Paul Ince, John Carver,  Jim Jefferries, Tony Adams and Pepe Mel were all what I'd define as terrible.

Yet Villas Boas is the worst of the prem era? Give me a break.

Only managed Blackpool in the PL didn't he? One of the worst promoted sides ever on paper, such a small budget and they only got relegated on the final day. He's far from the worst.

He was around when Palace first got promoted too. Think there was one more club.

I don't think he is, that's also a silly shout.

Dalglish won a Premiere League title and got to 2 cup finals in his first full season back at Liverpool and someone ranks him as one of the worst in Premier League history?

Some fucking people xD

He also got us into the champions league and an FA Cup final. Although he did fuck things up he is nowhere near the worst, especially when you factor in that the best player on planet earth was injured for a big chunk of the season that led to us crashing down to 13th and having John Barnes as our top scorer from central midfield.
