Why EFL clubs are stepping off the managerial merry-go-round and looking to the future.
It might be interesting to chart the ages of all EFL managers over the past few seasons. I have a completely unconfirmed suspicion that as the Proper Football Men age out of management, there’s space opening up for up and coming types in their 30s and early 40s that previously wasn’t there. But perhaps the PFMs have dominated for so long that the generation in the middle didn’t get their chance?
Would you say there’s more of a risk with appointing these up and coming managers in terms of loyalty? It seems that they’re striving to reach the top of the game with or without that club. Whilst traditional managers who’ve been there and seen it, will be more willing to settle at that club.
