With each of the articles on managers in this long-running series I have tried to do a little summary of their achievements. But I felt that before I went further with Terry Neil it would be good to have an overall summary of all Arsenal managers.
The table of Arsenal management and its success exists in many forms – I have added my own little bit by adding a “Top 4″ column. By which I simply mean, achieving a place in the top 4 of the top division.
Although it is only in recent years that the top 4 finish has brought its own rewards it is nevertheless a guide as to how well the club was doing above and beyond the ultimate accolade of winning things.
Having done this I suppose it might be a good idea to add how many Cup Finals the manager achieved – but I’ll leave that for another day.
