They are still around and taking charge of
Premier League clubs, but they are more seldom, and the same names
goes around. People like Sam Allardyce, David Moyes, Mark Hughes and
Tony Pulis are there, and of course Sean Dyche and Eddie Howe.
Swansea appointed Paul Clement, and names such as Gareth Southgate,
Chris Coleman, Gordon Strachan and Garry Monk are others running
clubs and national teams with relatively good results.
People like Martin O'Neill and Roy Keane are still in the trade,
being in charge of Republic of Ireland. Michael O'Neill is also
starting to get noticed with a great run of results for N Ireland.

The last Englishman to win a league title was Howard Wilkinson when
he managed to win it with Leeds in 1992. Since then Scottish
managers Kenny Dalglish and Sir Alex Ferguson are the once doing it
with Liverpool, Blackburn and Manchester United.
In the top six at the moment, you have one Italian, one French, one
Argentinian, a German, a Spanish and a Portuguese in charge. Other

a few clubs also going foreign in the appointments.
