Both Walker and Dodgin Jnr managed the club in 1980. If you know who we played against your first game I can tell you which.
It was against Peterborough in the FA Cup in November.
Cheers.

I was miles out. It must be about 37 now I've looked at the dates  Grin I don't remember about 8 or nine of them.
In a nutshell, Dave Bowen, Graham Carr, Chris Wilder, Ian Atkins, the current supremo and some bloke called Darnell aside...they were all s***e!  Tongue

Herbert Chapman wasn't too bad. Dunno what happened to him after he left us though. Smiley

32  Sad

34 to 36  
Primarily from Dave Smith

Some of the short lived Managers was aware that they were the managers but due to school and living in London; having a sport to play may have seen the team play but not sure which manager was in charge! Could have totted them up incorrectly as well!
 
I would say Bowen and his 60s sides have been the best with Stuart Gray being an intellectual coach, did well for a time. Loved Atkins for his bully boy tactics and Graham Carr for unearthing those gems. Who can forget Eddie Eddie on the wing. So many great players from Jack English and Alan Woan to Theo Foley and Ashworth and the great Cliff Holton and equally great Frank Large plus the irrepressible Holmes! We may have history in abundance! Possibly Brady is now on his way to emulate Dave Bowen?

I thought this but its a double edged sword. He seems ambitious, so if he does really well will probably move on at some point. On the flip side you never know when some kind of rot starts to set in and a manager totally loses the plot, along with most of the players.
Hes already high up the league table of managers in terms of service. I just know that there is no one else Id rather have at the moment.
Perhaps he can embed us in L1, take a Championship job and Wilder/Dyche are available to take over, although their stock will have to drop. Wilders has, Dyche is trying!

Between 24 and 26 for me. Atko was the manager when I first took an interest but I was dragged along to a few games here and there in the years prior to that. They would have been in the Foley/Chard/Barnwell era but I wouldn't have the foggiest idea which ones were in charge of the games I was at!

Brady has slipped level with Curle now and has only half the points Atkins had achieved at this stage. Early days.

Interesting how Page wasn't too bad for us. I always thought his problem was that he wasn't Chris Wilder enough and as things have turned out elsewhere he's not such a bad manager after all. He was sacked because we were 16th in the division, isn't that our target this season?

His comments after the Bristol Rovers defeat didn't help along with the bad form at the time.

The men against girls? That wasn't good but hardly a sacking offence. It was poor form but we were 16th. We are 17th now after a win.

We had lost 9 and 11, got knocked out the cup by a none league side and just been hammered 5-0 by Bristol Rovers. The football was also dire.

I'll never forgive him for the away performance against Posh ether.

It was only going one way with him imo.

Yes, those comments following the 5-0 defeat. He was sacked on the Monday after.

I'm not sure what 9 and 11 means but no manager gets sacked for losing cup games, it's routine league management. They did lose 5-0 away but it's hardly the first time a team had a bad result. What game against Pish was it that so annoyed you?
He must be the first manager to be sacked for potential future defeats.
