Yes it was rather ridiculous to appoint a football icon with 3 promotions at a higher level including the Premier league who would invest in the club and raise our profile.

If only we had appointed one of the other top managers that were queuing up to take us on, especially those with win ratios in the upper 80's.

One of many things I like about Ollie is he does not confuse the player with endless tactics that the opposition might play.

When asked he said Bradford will do what they do I am not interested it's not my job , my job is to get my players to do what I want them to do.

A breathe of fresh air after the Jolley tactics I am sure the players are so much happier now.

Those are decent stats. 1.36 points per game would be a solid top half finish, and he's averaging that over his whole career despite taking on some (at the time) basket case clubs, and also having time in the Premier League with struggling teams Blackpool and Palace.

Sheff Utd have won 9 of their 25 games this season and are 5th in the Premier. That's a 36% win ratio. Ollie's overall record is 36.1%.

A very large club with a top-flight pedigree would give hen's teeth for 2 promotions into the Premiership.

They have not managed one promotion in the last 17 years to the Prem!

You can prove anything with stats. Why not also include budgets v other clubs and which division he was managaing in?

After reading your post, I logged in just to give you a red cross, best manager since Buckley MK1 and you have too find something/anything to undermine his record

Taking Blackpool to the premier league was remarkable. A season in the premier league with Blackpool will distort his overall loss count.

When was the last time we had a manager that has managed in the top flight before ending up here?

Look beyond the numbers. Jim Bentley had a 28% win rate at Morecambe but many consider his achievements there to be excellent.

Sheffield United mentioned above but in our league, 6th place Colchester have won 38.7% of their games this season.
