Ed001
Who are the top 5 mangaers currently.

{Ed001's Note - Simeone, Klopp, Mourinho, Bielsa and I can't think of another off the top of my head, which is what has taken so long to reply as I couldn't think of a 5th, even though I have said it recently.}

No pep Ed.

{Ed001's Note - nope, his teams get gradually worse over time as he coaches them, that is not the sign of a top coach. Also he overcomplicates the game. It should be simple at its best.}

Ancelotti, ed01?

{Ed001's Note - he has failed to lift as many league titles as he should have to be classed as a great. In my opinion.}

Ranieri?

{Ed001's Note - I like him, but not sure he can be classed as a top 5 after his time in international management.}

Perhaps Pocettino? Wenger?

{Ed001's Note - Pochettino has not proven himself yet. Wenger has struggled for too long.}

Allegri? Tuchel? Lucho?

{Ed001's Note - Allegri is the one I was thinking of. Tuchel has not impressed me at all. He is a poor man's Klopp. I am not sure who you mean by Lucho?}

So do mourinhos ed? How come you selected him?

{Ed001's Note - no they don't. Jose usually leaves when they are at their peak. His last job was a struggle, but he has had a lot going on off the field, to me he looks like he needs a long break.}

Ancelloti?

{Ed001's Note - no mate, missed out on far too many league titles with the best team in it.}

Ancelotti ed?
Up the pool.

{Ed001's Note - see above.}

Unai Emery? Low? Koeman? Sarri?

{Ed001's Note - Emery is a good shout, he has done well. Loew has not proven himself other than as manager of the team with by far the best players, in Germany. Koeman, not even close, not even good, in my opinion, too much of an arse. Sarri I do not know enough about, prior to Napoli, to judge him.}

Sampaoli?

{Ed025's Note - ED01 knows its koeman back, but his red tinted glasses wont let him actually say it.. :)

I love ed1s reply above, can't be more correct.

ed001 how about Roger Schmidt?

Do you think Emery may come to the PL one day in the future Ed?

{Ed001's Note - probably. I hope so, he certainly was keen at one time, not sure about now.}

Sorry ed, meant Luis Enrique of Barcelona. Also, couldn't you argue the same about how Bielsa should have won more than he has?

{Ed001's Note - meh, hard to judge Enrique, he did nothing to suggest he was special before Barca. Bielsa has never had the best teams like Ancelotti has done repeatedly. Ancelotti is just too nice for me.}

ed001 how about Roger Schmidt?

{Ed001's Note - I don't know enough about him to consider him a top 5 manager in the world.}

How about Jorge Jesus eds?

{Ed001's Note - he needs to win outside of Portugal. Or do a bit better in Europe.}

What about international managers?
I think Jochim Lรถwe has done a good job despite his personal hygiene issues ๐Ÿ˜.

{Ed001's Note - yes but he is managing Germany, who are much better than the rest, so he needs to prove himself elsewhere.}

Ed regarding Leow, he built that German team from scratch since 2006, bringing through all the great players we now know of today so shouldn`t he get the credit for having the best players if he is the one that brought them through? I do agree that he needs to prove himself as a manager of a club or elsewhere as well because he was a failed manager at Hamburg where he got the sack.

{Ed001's Note - did he bring them through or did the club academies not do that?}

I see your point, Ed. I meant that he brought them through the national team through the national team youth ranks when many may not have deemed it fit. I agree that Germans have revamped their club and national team youth systems since 2008 which has kept the assembly line coming with talented players. In 2009, Khedira, Neuer, Boateng, Ozil, Muller and Kroos all came from the U21 team that beat England in the 2300p Euro U21 final (players in that England team have disappeared from the football landscape, in contrast due to poor professional choices and bad management) . After that, these boys all went on to start for Germany at the 2010 World cup. That is to Leow`s credit, IMO for having the gonads to play them and they did not disappoint. 4 years later, these same players won the World cup. I just think he should get credit for actually giving these boys a chance? Just asking.

Why not give it to Gary Neville he talks rubbish 24/ 7 the press would love him ๐Ÿ˜€

And the irritating Michael Owen as his mini me

I'd pay to see that

Maybe because Of my Irish roots I'm saying that, well actually I am but OMG anything could happen these days.
