Bill Nicholson played a major role in Tottenham's title winning 1950/51 season as a player, and masterminded the side as manager to the same honour ten years later.

A little history lesson for our younger viewers :)

It's a nice article, if it has to be a little superficial, so thanks for posting it. One thing concerns me though: in a list of the 50 greatest ever managers, how the fuck is he only number 47?

More ridiculous is Vic Buckingham at 49! Without that guy, we would have never had Cruyff.

He will always be No 1 for me!

Had the pleasure of his company in a queue in the dining car on a train one late afternoon/evening after we won 2-1 at Leeds in 1971

Absolute gentleman and asked me what I thought of Martin Chivers who scored twice

Great article for the uneducated of our history in the 60s-70s.
I am lucky enough to have supported the club since the mid 50's and enjoyed our glory years live and it brought back some memories from that era.

Because its not real football if its before the premier league is it. A fair assessment would probably be 8-10th.
Ferguson, Clough, Chapman, Shankly, Wenger, Busby, Paisley, Nicholson, Robson, George Ramsay (who? :D ) , Will McGregor (Honorary mention).
Thats my top 10 +1 not in any order. Maybe i forgot Tim Sherwood, or someone else but thats not bad off the top of the head.:D
