How long do managers last at the top 92 clubs in England ? We’ve crunched the numbers to reveal the exact average in days… Job security for managers in England’s top four tiers is at an all-time low, a Sky Sports study has found. A remarkable 75 managers were sacked, quit or failed to last after temporary stints in charge last season – the highest total in English football history. In addition, the average tenure for a departing manager last term was an all-time low of just 423 days.
This season, 51 managers have been axed or walked already and the average tenure is just 477 days and, with over three months until July 1st, that number could still drop below that threshold to break a new record. In the first years after the Second World War, managers had an average tenure of more than seven years, with just 20 departing their roles during the 1946/47 season. But even as recently as the start of the Premier League era in 1992/93, managers could expect to be in charge for nearly three years, with just 25 coaches losing their jobs in the first Premier League season. For the study, Sky Sports recorded every manager who has lasted 35 days or more at a current top-four tier club since 1946/47 to work out how long the average boss keeps his job, with the help of Soccerbase.com1 data.

THIS SEASON’S CASUALTIES
There have been a number of managerial departures this season which have highlighted the insecurity football managers face. Leicester boss Claudio Ranieri was sacked in February 2017, despite leading Leicester to a 5000-1 shock Premier League win last season, while Aitor Karanka – who led Middlesbrough to the top flight last term – left his post last week.

Bob Bradley only lasted 85 days at Swansea before receiving his marching orders, while Walter Zenga (Wolves), Kenny Jackett (Rotherham), Alberto Cavasin, Andy Edwards (both Leyton Orient), Russell Slade (Coventry), Chris Brass (Bury), all lasted fewer than 100 days at the helm this term in the lower leagues. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is under pressure to step down after a string of poor results, but the Frenchman is unlikely to consider resignation lightly after more than 20 years in charge of the Gunners.

Wenger is England’s longest-serving, active manager and currently holds the 10th-longest reign in our study, which is nearly twice as long as the next longest active tenure, held by Paul Tisdale at Exeter (10 years, nine months). But neither Wenger or Tisdale come close to the all-time record set by Fred Everiss, who was in charge of West Brom between 1902 and 1948 – the longest tenure of any football manager in English history. Meanwhile, Sir Alex Ferguson’s 26-and-a-half-year reign at Old Trafford was the third-longest in our list, ahead of another ex United boss Sir Matt Busby.

YOUR CLUB’S AVERAGE MANAGER TENURE
In terms of average tenures at clubs since 1946/47, Manchester United, boosted by Ferguson’s tenure, lead the pack with the average boss lasting 2,346 days. Arsenal have the second longest with 2,172 days, followed by Ipswich (2,007), West Ham (1,916), Liverpool (1,741) and Everton (1,473).
Relative Football League newcomers Morecambe (1,988) and AFC Wimbledon (1,790) also have high averages, due to their recent promotions from non league.
New Notts County manager Kevin Nolan
Meanwhile, Notts County have had more managers than any other current top-four tier club over the last 70 years – appointed 48 managers for more than 35 days and averaging around 500 days at the helm each. Check out the table below to see how many managers your club has appointed…

CIT Trunker Officer – Cardtronics UK Ltd
A Cambridge-educated law lecturer is forcing his Tesco1 security guard brother out of their 750,000 flat in Hampstead2 thanks to a contract they agreed at their local Costa. Filip Saranovic, 29, drew up papers for the property deal and explained the basics to his ill-educated brother, Nikola, 41 . He did not tell him about a clause allowed either sibling to force through the sale of the flat. Nikola, faced with being left without a home, challenged the legality of the deal . He claimed his younger brother, who was educated at Cambridge and Harvard and is now a lecturer in maritime law at the University of Southampton, had taken advantage of his trust.
However, a judge at Central London county court has ruled Filip did nothing wrong and that Nikola should have sought legal advice before signing. The brothers bought the flat in Holmdale Road in June 2014 with money given to them by their mother, discussing the deal at the coffee shop before signing documents drawn up by Filip. While Nikola was looking at the flat as a family home, his brother s primary reason for buying it was a lucrative plan to develop several attached garages.
Judge Michael Berkley agreed Nikola had no express knowledge of the sale clause and had relied on his brother to explain that important part of the transaction . But he ruled Filip had done nothing wrong and that Nikola, who is not a details man , hadn t paid enough attention to the papers he was signing. Rift: Nikola, pictured with his wife Bojana has now been given two months to vacate the flat (Richard Gittins/Champion News:)
Nikola, his wife Bojana and their four-year-old daughter have now been given two months to vacate the flat, and could face a 200,000 bill for the cost of the legal battle.
Judge Berkley found Filip, who owns two other flats in Cambridge and Southampton, had lived up to the duty of candour he owed his brother and was entitled to expect Nikola would take independent advice before signing. Under the terms of the deal, Nikola could live at the flat rent-free but a clause was inserted to allow either brother to force the sale of the property after a year. Martin Young, for Nikola, said the brothers previously enjoyed a good relationship but the legal battle had caused a deep divide in their family.
The flat at the centre of the row (Richard Gittins/Champion News)
What Nikola wanted all along was to keep the home that he thought would be his for as long as he wanted it, he said . Filip knew that Nikola was relying on him to know the nature of the document he was signing . He thought the flat was going to buy a home for him and his family for the foreseeable future . Jonathon Upton, for Filip, said: Nikola didn t ask anyone to explain the deed to him . He didn t read the covering letter . He didn t take any care. In his ruling, Judge Berkley said Nikola is not as dynamic as Filip and trusted his brother to explain the document, but was willing to sign whatever Filip told him to sign, provided that he had the basic impact explained to him .
I find that Filip chose not to explain the detail of the express power of sale and in particular the fact that either party could elect to sell the property against the other s wishes after a year.
I cannot find anything that Filip did wrong .
It is very unfair and inequitable to say that Filip asserted undue influence in anything that he did. The judge ordered that the flat can go on the market in a month to give Nikola and his family some time to adjust to the idea of leaving their home . He also said he would consider a written plea for a reduction of Nikola s costs from the court case, estimated at 200,000.
