    English League will be very intriguing. Conte, Mourinho, Wenger, Pep, and Klopp in one league.

    Always found it interesting that the top managers in England are rarely British. Then again the top teams barely have any English players any more either.

    I'll probably make up for it with far-fetched transfer rumors. :p

    Sir Alex is British and he's a top manager. Dalglish and all those Liverpool managers in the 80's are British. Ever since the Premier League was formed in 1992, a British manager has won the league 14 out of 24 times.

    Think you mean "rarely English" as no English managers have ever won the Premier League.

    Sure the Premier League was been won by a British manager 58% of the time, but only 25% of the Premier League winning managers have been British. Alex Ferguson greatly skews the first statistic. His greatness is what would classify in the rare category. Pre-Premier league was absolutely a dominance by English managers for the top flight though. It's certainly a recent trend of the foreign managers being prioritized for the top positions that are open.
