Robbie Keane rates former Celtic boss Gordon Strachan as the best manager he has ever worked with. The Republic of Ireland legend rates the Scotland international supremo ahead of Inter Milan's iconic Marcello Lippi, Liverpool's Rafa Benitez and Spurs gaffer Harry Redknapp. Strachan, then in charge at Coventry City, splashed £6million to sign the 19-year-old striker from Wolves at the start of the 1999/2000 season - a record transfer for a teenager at the time. Keane only remained in the Midlands for a year before moving to Italy, but Strachan still made an enormous impact on the prolific frontman. He said: "I played with some many good managers in my career and many have good for me. "However, Gordon Strachan gets my vote as the No.1 boss. "He got the absolute best out of me when I was a youngster. He did the same with many other players, too. "I have to say I thought he was a formidable character." Keane rattled in 12 goals in 31 league games at Coventry and attracted the attention of Lippi at the Seri ...
Here's a question for debate. Is it money that makes a manager successful or is it all down to good management? I'm just asking this question because for years David Moyes whilst at Everton used the ''Pauper card''. However he's not exactly pulled up any trees having spent 64 million net this season. That's second to Manchester City on 85 million. That's 46 million more than Brendan Rodgers spent net at Liverpool. 18 million net. The realty is, Rafa Benitez at Valencia and Jose Mourinho at Porto, spent a fraction what Moyes did at Everton and were successful. In fact, Rafa Benitez at Chelsea won the Europa league having spent a mere 7 million in his 8 months. Moyes had 11 years at Everton, you would think he would have won the Carling Cup at least once if he was as good a manager as he thinks he is. Steve McClaren, Mark Hughes and Alex Mcleish who are poor managers managed that. Even the tactically inept Harry Redknapp won the FA Cup. All in all, it's good management that makes managers successful. That's ...
So far, David Moyes has a better win% record (57.58) than any manager in United’s history apart from Alex Ferguson (59.67). Moyes’ win% with Everton was much lower though (41%). Moyes won 18 of his first 31 games in charge at United — a better record than Sir Matt Busby (15), Ron Atkinson (14) and Sir Alex Ferguson (12). United have gone out of the FA Cup at the third round under Moyes — something which only happened once in Alex Ferguson’s 27 years in charge. United are currently seventh. They haven’t been as low at this stage of the season since the 1988/89 campaign. Only Arsene Wenger, Alex Ferguson and Harry Redknapp have managed more Premier League games than David Moyes. Alex Ferguson (528), Arsene Wenger (383), David Moyes (174), Rafa Benitez (126) and Gerard Houllier (112) are the only managers to have won over 100 games with a Premier League team Moyes’ expensive £27.5 million signing, Marouane Fellaini, has scored just once this season — while playing for Everton. He has failed ...

If you haven't heard of the 'FERGIE TIME' Phenomena in Football, then you don't know nothing about football Great Bilal wrote. Do you need any further evidence for the existence and power/ influence of “Fergie time"? Alex Ferguson has finally admitted he always put pressure on referees as he prepares for his final game at West Brom on Sunday. Now he hopes his successor David Moyes will have a watch which tells ‘Fergie time’ — just like he has for all these years. His influence over refs has not gone unnoticed by his opponents either, with Harry Redknapp saying a lot of officials are ‘afraid to upset him’. Rafa Benitez has regularly had a grumble about it while Jose Mourinho remarked he hoped he would have the power to make refs ‘tremble a little bit’ like Fergie does. The sight of Ferguson jabbing his wrist- watch to indicate he knows how much time should be added on has become a familiar sight for refs over the years. And his team have scored countless goals in ‘Fergie time’. Asked if ...

Premier League ROUND-UP Rafa Benitez enjoyed his first Premier League win as Chelsea manager as a revitalised Fernando Torres inspired victory at Sunderland, but the wait goes on for Queens Park Rangers boss Harry Redknapp. Norwich City continue to be in flying form after edging a seven-goal thriller at Swansea City and Southampton won the battle of the top-flight strugglers after seeing off Reading. Arsenal bounced back to form after getting the better of West Bromwich Albion as Aston Villa and Stoke City extended recent unbeaten runs after playing out a scoreless draw.

This will save us lots of time and money going forward" he added. Rafa Benitez declined to make a statement, but did say that he held Sir Alex Ferguson responsible for the decision".
I am just drifting out of a juve-induced coma suffered on a grey Tuesday night at the Stadio Delle Alpi in Torin, only to be fed with the bitter tonic. Roman Abramovich, Chelsea FC's larger-than-life bankroller hires erstwhile Blues bogey-man Rafael 'Rafa' Benitez to the coveted top job of Chelsea Manager. I grimaced, and then gaped in awe dismay, and then became even more angered at the thought of replacing a manager who won the UEFA Champions League by fluke with another who achieved similar feat much earlier in 2005. I hate to say this but 'blue-blood' which depicts royalty does not mix with 'mud-blood.' I know our team was far from perfect but we were a working case in progress. With recent flair and skills coupled with dribbling prowess I felt a level headed manager could have done a decent job. Maybe a Harry Redknapp could have done the trick but definitely not a spent force Rafa Benitez. He has passed his hypnotic prime. Five years ago, his bellicose ego got a better part of him when out of complac ...
