When was the last forward a manager?

Recommended Posts

A general discussion.


Kevin Keegan at Newcastle? Ryan Lowe at PNE?


Most managers seem to me to be defenders with a don't lose mindset.


Yes the set up at S5 stinks but when was the last time we had an attacking minded boss?

Mancini did ok.


But yes - many managers are former defenders. Our last manager who played as a forward was King Sturrock.


BTW. We play in S6.  Not S5.

The most successful manger to manage in England was a striker.


Alex Ferguson



Brian Clough was also a forward, his record as manager overshadows his goalscoring record at Middlesborough and Sunderland which  is outstanding.

Mark Hughes was ok.


Surprised Lineker never went into management, but he's probably done better; financially and less stress in his media career.
