FourFourTwo Rank Premier League Managers This Season

Recommended Posts

https://www.fourfourtwo.com/features/ranked-every-current-premier-league-manager-based-their-work-season?_format=amp&__twitter_impression=true

1. Guardiola

2. Pochettino

3. Dyche

4. Benitez

5. Carvalhal

 

I'd have Hodgson higher than 15th. Palace were in dire straits and hadn't even got a point. He's turned them around remarkably. 

I'd also have Hughton above Puel. Brighton were tipped for relegation so he's by far exceeded expectations. Don't think Pochettino should be as high as 2nd. 

Mourinho in 12th. Conte in 14th. Wenger 17th. Allardyce 18th.

I was told growing up if you don't try, you automatically fail. Conte should be dead last.

I'd have guardiola first and dyche second. Can't understand pochetinno above dyche. Hodson would be near the top considering he got all palaces points this year

It’s a bit wierd how Poch is above Klopp too considering we are above them in the league and have at least a Champions League semi-final to look forward to?

We don’t, we just enable ourselves to spend big by managing our money better.

How is Eddie Howe 7th? I actually think Bournemouth have regressed.

They played some excellent football on their first season up and comfortably stayed up. They then continued this style along with some big money spent finishing 9th last season, a really great result for them.

But this year I think they have struggled. When I've seen them, more often than not, they seem to have lost that spark they had before and run out of idea's fairly quick. 

Ok granted, they have picked up a bit lately and comeback from losing positions on three or four occasions but I think it's lazy journalism to have Howe as far as 7th.

Dire straits after what 6 games? That Palace squad is as capable as it is showing to be bottom half, survived relegation just about. Hodgson is an extremely limited manager.

I'd happily drop Howe to about 10th or 11th.

My order would be:

1. Guardiola - they've won the league with absolute ease.
2. Klopp - probably play some of the best football in the league at times. 
3. Dyche - worked wonders with Burnley and proving to a lot of the football world if you stick with a manager it can work in the end. On the brink of Europe.
4. Benitez - a high position fuelled by recent upturn in form after a turbulent winter but has done very well as they were a probably a popular tip to go down
5. Pochettino - kept Spurs in the race for the top 4. Good footballing side but need to start winning something soon...
6. Carvalhal - provided Swansea with a fight for survival as opposed to going out with a whimper. Job not complete but arrived in tough circumstances
7. Hughton - done superbly with Brighton. Definitely doubts at the start of the season for Brighton to be relegated. All but safe and deserves lots of credit for that.
8. Puel - we were 1 point off relegation when he arrived. Provided enough to get us well clear of the that threat and contend for European place but season ending with a whimper
9. Wagner - similar to Hughton at Brighton. Tip for relegation but done enough at the start of the season to get enough points to cover for their recent blip in form. Should survive so deserves similar amount of credit as Hughton will get.
10. Hodgson - could be a contender for manager of the season? Palace on 0 points when he took over and has guided them to safety no doubt. Should be heavily commended.
11. Mourinho - perhaps 11th is a bit harsh as they're still gonna finish 2nd but style of football has been terrible. Perhaps exaggerated by how good their city rivals have been.
12. Moyes - stabilised West Ham after they looked doomed 
13. Howe - agree with what Lucas said. Have they improved? I don't think so. They've done well to survive again but nothing special.
14. Gracia - similar to Moyes in that he has provided a bit of stability for the club and taken the attention away from their managerial change.
15. Conte - very disappointing considering the talent at his disposal and amount of money spent. Looks to have downed tools at some points in the 2nd half of the season.
16. Allardyce - taken Everton away from relegation places as it looked dire for them at one stage but style/brand of football leaves a lot to be desired.
17. Lambert - arrived in difficult circumstances and stopped the rot somewhat but still look like their 10 year Premier League stay will come to an end.
18. Wenger - shite. similar to Conte in that should do better with amount spent and ability of squad. Europa League taking focus but has enough in the squad to compete in the league as well. 
19. Hughes - taking 2 sides down is a special achievement but an unwanted one. Terrible appointment by Southampton and they should have aimed higher with the calibre of manager.

they'd lost 7 in a row. Hadn't even scored. Were rooted to the bottom of the table. he may be limited but he deserves credit for not keeping them in that situation.

Pochettino must only be up there because some people have yet to recalibrate their brains to accept Tottenham are a top 4 side. They must still think he's got some mid table team punching above their weight.

Tottenham are having a worse league season than last. If that was a Chelsea managers slip he'd be called shit.

Still think it's way too early. How can you put Wagner 10th when Huddersfield could still go down? Carvalhal 5th? Fucking hell.

How can Carvalhal be 5th and Hodgson 15th?

Pochettino 2nd is a joke as well. 4th at best for me. Top three are Guardiola, Dyche and Benitez - assuming neither of the latter fall to bits.

On my phone so won’t give a detailed reply but are we are massively punching above our weight. The other clubs around us have far bigger wage bills, far bigger income and spend a lot more money. Poch has done a marvellous job, and considering we’ve had 38 away games this season he’s done superbly to have us where he has

As much as I hate the fat Spanish prick, he's shut me up this year and has done a lot better than I expected with Newcastle. It's clear England is his comfort zone. La Liga is still for debate after how he did with Madrid but he needs to stay away from Serie A and continue in the place he does best.

Your starting XI is easily the best and arguably the most balanced in the league, bar City. 

Add the depth in Winks, Son, Moura, Sanchez, Wanyama, Rose, 

I really don't know what you are on about.

Why do almost all the awards happen before the end of the season? It's just bizarre

It's the opinion of some bloke, who writes daft Facebook clickbait for FourFourTwo, it's hardly the results of a mathematical algorithm.  We'll all have differing opinion on this.

Through a very lengthy period of planning and squad building. The fact it’s such a balanced side is credit to Pochettino. 

I’ve just stated facts - we massively punch above our weight in comparison to every other top six club in comparison financially.

That’s why the trophy argument annoys me too ... why there is this ridiculous expectation on us I don’t know. We do well to be where we are with our resources and that credit goes to the manager and begrudgingly to Levy.

I wouldn’t necessarily have him 2nd but to question the job he’s doing as if it is expected is credit to him really. Establishing us where he has is an exceptional effort.

Then he's more suited for a technical director role than a manager. I feel he should be doing more. Wage bill and how much a club spends doesn't mean anything if we are comparing quality.  

This is a Spurs team that on paper, is probably the 2nd best in the league. Starting XI and depth. Fairly certain if Alli or Kane get sold for a tremendous amount, you lot would be using those funds to find a quality replacement or invest in your weaknesses. Just as Liverpool did with Suarez and Coutinho.

i don't think it's a ridiculous expectation for you to win trophies, but given how well you do in the league considering the stuff you mention it would be nice I guess to have some silverware to add to it?

Incredible that so many people have Wenger bottom 2 or 3 when you've got managers like Lambert, Hughes and Allardyce knocking about. Not saying top 5 or even necessarily top half but League Cup final, Europa semi final, the media don't half do a decent job of telling some people what to think.

Pochettino and Spurs are definitely doing well (not sure if they are punching above the weight or not) but they have been fantastic and the way he developed some of the young players needs a special mention. Not many of us could say the likes of Son, Alli are great players that could be playing in europe before they joined Spurs and pochettino should also be given credit for Dier, Dembele and also Kane's development I believe, we can debate on some of these names but I hope my point is being conveyed correctly. Many even predicted they would have a bad season since they were going to play in Wembley but he proved them all wrong. And he did all this on a smaller budget and also by playing good football. 

But I agree with some comments above that they should concentrate more on the cups and try to win something because no one remembers the league position few years later.
