In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.

"Quick Mick"

Really strong case for Reddy and Bogle though. Think Redds could've played higher if not for injuries, and Omar can probably play higher than L2 as well but hasn't shown it yet.

Very, very difficult one.

Boulding was incredible for a very short period for us in the Championship.  He came into a side that badly lacked pace but initially offered little else.  The Birmingham game on a Friday night where we won 3-1 was his, I suppose, breakout moment when he scored twice and they just couldn't handle him.  But from there he struggled to repeat that until the latter stages of the season under Groves when everything just clicked as a side.  He massively benefited from playing alongside Bradley Allen as someone who showed him where and when to run.  Another who aided his hot streak was Danny Butterfield in a midfield role, he set up an awful lot of chances for him with clever slide through balls to utilise his pace.   Never quite the same player when he came back, more clinical but not as deadly.  He was in a far poorer side too.

Reddy - Another who was awesome over a short period of time.  His first season was more or less a non-event, first four/five months of the second season he was a player quite clearly playing two levels below his natural standing.  Completely unplayable during that period but another who benefited from playing with a know-how strike partner in Gary Jones.  Injuries were a great shame and he's the one who I think could and should have played at a higher level consistently.

Bogle - Over a more sustained period and scored those goals at Wembley.  Best description I can give him is a precocious talent.  I think the strops and tantrums have been forgotten a little because of how good that run of form was before he left.  We missed his goals but I grew a little tired, probably more because of how Bignot set everything up, of it becoming the Bogle Show.  It was like we had Ronaldo for Real Madrid at one point where every pass had to go to him, he was on all free-kicks etc.  Surprised he hasn't done anything since he left us, especially in League One where I thought he would at least score goals.  

Reddy for me.

Phew.....too close to call.

But if I have to choose I think I'll go with Reddy.
