Favourite Past Manchester City Managers?


The following list of Manchester City managers is fairly impressive, but out of our recent gaffers who would you choose and why?

In an attempt to gauge everyone's opinion, the poll results will not be displayed until after your vote, courtesy of Vital Man City member, Citeh.

To vote, click here.

Did you know that I have my own blog? No, then take a look and you will see that on the odd occasion I stream live Manchester City games.

What a rum lot! Still, I'd rather have that lot of noble failures (Mercer and Allison excepted) than the vicious, graceless goon that has been at the swamp these past 20 odd years. Perhaps we just could have done with slightly fewer of said noble failures though!

Its Tony Book for me, not just on managerial terms but also i think he's a proper Mr Man City type, always around the place and blue blooded to the core! Also massively respect Brian Horton for the sheer diplomacy and restraint he showed during the Lee takeover debacle, a real gent. (more of a man than Fabregras will ever be).

Like Doody, it has to be Joe Mercer for me also - his years were our glory years.

Joe Mercer was certainly our most successful manager -- but Kevin Keegan is my favourite because he brought us back from the brink. He gave us back our pride... breaking club records in 2001-2002 for the number of points gained and goals scored in a season.

Bit unfair really since only two of this lot actually won anything with us. I can't be arsed to look at the list again but is Ron Saunders on it?

We have had a few good ones from various decades I have a few fond memories of a few of those and bad memories of a few I'd like to forget.
