    I say we all should all give Dario Gradi a pat on the back.

    Who knows what he would have achieved with a top flight, well funded club?

    Congratulations also go to Crewe's board for their foresight in not sacking him the first time the club were relegated.

    Agreed - it's nice to see loyalty still exists in football. I hope Charlton keep Pards for a while too.

    More great coaches here

    Best coach ever. Got to be Scottish. Either Stein or Shankly.

    Would probably err toward Stein as he also coached at international level and kept Scotland punching above their weight.

    Not sure if I got the gist of this thread but here goes

    Salvador Caetano Enigma on the Volvo Chassis.

    But seriously, how do you distinguish between a coach and a manager these days. Sammy Lee was a coach at Bolton until they promoted (demoted?) him to Manager. Does this mean he is now, a coach who manages or a manager that coaches.

    As my bruv said, hats off to Dario Gradi, for longevity, but I would probably go for Sam Allardyce or Harry Redknapp or Paul Jewell. They have a habit of working on shoestring budgets in the Premiership, and still getting the results that some of the bigger clubs achieve with 10 or 20 times the funding.

    Have to agree on Harry - I was sad to see him go at the time.
