Best Coach. Ever.
Posted by Brian Beerman on Friday, Oct. 30th, 2015 at 6:31 PM

Midseason seems a good time to post a poll. And what better topic than who is the best coach United has ever seen. Who do you feel deserves that title? Is your decision based solely on trophies alone? How much weight do you give to victories vs win percentage? Will you consider clutch performances in big games like cup finals? Will you be swayed by other forces such as rivalries or personal friendships? Take time to review histories and consider your vote. Feel free to provide comments to back up your choice. This might very well be the most important thing you vote for. Ever.

 

Note: I encourage everyone to not vote for themselves.

I throw my vote behind the living legend known in some circles as Dr Doom. Dave Dohm is currently second in all-time win percentage (.626) and seventh in victories (282). When comparing Dr Doom against one of the other top candidates here, Alon Atie (Tranmere), he sits one total trophy behind: Alon has 18, Dave has 17. Alon has claimed the league title eight times (including an astonishing six straight when the team mastered the 1-2-2-5 formation); Dave has seven league titles. I give the edge to Dave because of Lewes' five FA Cup trophies. Dave is the master of this competition having advanced to the finale six times (including back-to-back wins seasons 9-10, and three straight trips seasons 13-15). This is and was always planned to be the most prestigious Cup in our league. Seven league championships combined with five FA Cup trophies puts Dave Dohm just at the top of the class in my book. Cheers Dr Dohm!

Honourable mention goes to Ian Lindsey who I would place third (after Alon Atie). Ian ranks second in total wins (340), second in total goals scored (1341), and third in win percentage (.621). We all know it took quite some time for Ian to claim silverware as Preston often played the role of runner up or semifinalist. But during season 18, Ian broke the curse and became the only coach to win the treble: he won the league championship easily, raised the AP Cup after a 5-3 shoot out win vs Lewes, and finally hoisted the Youth Cup trophy with a 7-6 shoot out win over Carlisle. While Ian has only seven total trophies to date, all seven came within only four seasons including back-to-back AP Cup trophies and Youth Cup trophies.

I'd love to vote for myself here. Perhaps I could if Olmec didn't hate me so much.

But, I had to go with Dave Doom.. I mean Dohm - he seems to be at the top of the Dohm - Alon - Ian triangle.

This is no contest.  Only one team-manager combination has never, repeat NEVER, been relegated and that has been the Alon Atie led Tranmere Rovers.  Playing versus Alon was always my Cup game.  Now if we're going to go for best looking manager, I'll just say Thank you everyone.

Really hard to come up with the answer to this. The top triumverate of Dohm, Atie and Lindsey all have such formidable records. Ian was cerainly overdue his success in MSWL1 and now he has broken his trophy duck, the trophies just keep rolling in. His stewardship of Kendal in MSWL2 is also phenomenal - the current squad is a neck and a head above some other top quality teams in the division and does not seem like faltering. I've tried all manner of tactics against Kendal in MSWL2 and all generally fail! For perseverance alone in MSWL1 though I might be tempted to vote for Ian. He much of felt like throwing in the towel sometimes waiting so long to get that trophy.

Manager Dohm is certainly worth the vote too. His record at Lewes is formidable and he has turned Wimbledon in MSWL2 into a top team in the space of no time at all. My only reservation is that I think Olmec maybe has a secret crush on Manager Dohm as he also seems to get an overly large slice of the luck cake in comparison to his rivals!

As for Alon his list of wins is impressive and did not realise he had never been relagated, which makes it even more impressive as the wins have come against the best opposition all the time.

I am impressed by all the feats of the other managers on the list aswell and do my best to aspire to reach their successes and my vote is going to one of them. A really clever manager and strategist, who probably should have had more success than theeir record shows (albeit a very good record as it stands and the only other manager with a win % to rival those other 3) - Kevin Martin and another manager more than willing to give good advice and help to others.

Alon wins again!   :-)

Nice job Alon!
