Premier League Football Manager Performance Comparisons

Here we compare the transfer spending of Premier League managers over certain time spans of interest to football fans . For instance we compare Arsen Wengers spending before  and after Arsenal's move to The Emerates stadium. We also compare different manages performance at chosen clubs.  

The job of a football Manager is not a very secure profession to enter. This page shows the transfer dealings and Nestpend of English Premier League Managers during their tenure at their football club.

Managers are really only as good as their last few results and can quicky find themselves in trouble with fans and Football Club owners who can be very hard to please. For instance Chelsea despite ther success have had  numerous different managers  take charge of the first team Since 2003 .

The table also shows netspend ( new investment)  which club owners make available to the Manager.

The "Purchased" column in this table shows the money spent on players in transfer  fees by the Club during the selected managers tenure.

The "Sold" column shows the money received by the football club from the sale of players in the same period.

In the Netspend column the total  of transfer fees received from the sale of Players is subtracted from the total money spent in transfer fees giving the netspend . This Netspend figure is the "new investment" made available to the manager to buy players as it removes moey recieved from player sales which was money spent by previous managers.

The "per season" column is the Netspend total divided by the number of years that the Manger was in charge giving an average of the new investment made available to him by the club owners over the time span he was manager.

some of the managers and clubs  are listed are included  because they were request by users of this site . I am happy to add  more Managers to this table, If you have any suggestions please contact me using the contact us form on thsi site giving the Managers names and club.
