Returning to the theme of last weekend, here is the analysis of the number of top 4 finishes achieved by managers against the number of games the managers were in charge for.
As mentioned before the “top four” notion is arbitrary, as are all other measurements – but it gives a reasonable guide to how well a manager is doing.
The list of managers is short because only those who have achieved a number that gives a meaningful number have been included.
To calculate the number I have taken the number of top four finishes (column six) and then divided that by the number of games (column four) and multiplied by 100 to give Top 4 / games (column five). The multiplication by 100 is a device simply to make the numbers readable. If you prefer raw numbers simply divide by 100, so Terry Neill would have 0.002
