JURGEN KLOPP

 

"Klopp's exploits during his short tenure will never be forgotten at BVB. When he took the helm in 2008, Dortmund were still in recovery phase following a near financial collapse: their squad was ordinary at best, and the club had finished 13th just two months prior to his arrival. In his first season, Dortmund unexpectedly shot up to a sixth-placed standing; the following year, BVB celebrated a return to European football by ending the campaign in fifth place. Klopp hit new heights in 2011, when after just three years under his care, Dortmund won the title with one of the most impressive records in Bundesliga history. And come May, there is a good chance the holders will retain their trophy."

MARKUS BABBEL

 

Following his retirement from football, Babbel stayed on with his last club, VfB Stuttgart, as an assistant manager.[8][9]

 

On 23 November 2008, Babbel became head coach of VfB Stuttgart, following Armin Veh.[10] Upon Babbel's arrival, VfB Stuttgart were 11th in the table after 14 games. They finished the season in third place, five points off league winners VfL Wolfsburg and qualifying for the Champions League. On 6 May 2009, Babbel extended his contract with VfB Stuttgart until the summer of 2011.

 

**Been sacked since (side lost some key players). Now at Hertha Berlin

 

THOMAS TUCHEL

 

Tuchel began his coaching career 2000 as Head coach of the Under 19 of VfB Stuttgart. After five years he returned to his former club FC Augsburg, where he worked as youth team co-ordinator for three years.[1] He was named as the new head coach of 1. FSV Mainz 05 on 3 August 2009, after the club was promoted to the Bundesliga. He signed a two-year contract[2] being promoted to that position from the FSV Mainz 05 Under 19 side.[3] In the 2010/11 season, Thomas Tuchel coached FSV Mainz 05 to 7 wins in their first 7 games, including an away victory over Bundesliga's powerhouse FC Bayern Munich. The team finished 5th in the rankings."

 

50% win rate.

 

BRENDAN RODGERS

 

Doing a great job at Swansea playing attractive passing football with a tiny budget.

PAUL LAMBERT

 

His Norwich project is by any measure a success.

 

Norwich's fine form from their 2009–10 promotion campaign continued into the 2010–11 season, and saw them gain a second successive promotion – becoming the first team to achieve a second successive promotion at this level since Manchester City 11 years earlier. During Lambert's first two season's in charge, Norwich City did not suffer two successive defeats in the league, in the same season. They did, however, lose their final game in League One in 2009/10 at home to Carlisle and the opening game of their 2010/11 Championship season at home to Watford.[19] Their 1–1 draw at Middlesbrough on 3 January 2011 saw them enter the automatic promotion places on goal difference.[20]

 

"In January 2011, Norwich refused to allow Burnley permission to try to secure Lambert as their new manager, following the dismissal of Brian Laws.[21] The Norwich statement read, in part, "The club will fight tooth and nail to retain the services of Paul Lambert and his team during this critical period of the season and whilst they remain employed under a long-term contract".[21] When Norwich beat Ipswich 5–1 at Portman Road, Lambert's record in East Anglian Derbies (including his time as Colchester manager) stood as played 6, won 4, drew 1, lost 1, scored 25, conceded 7. The 3–3 draw and 1–0 defeat were caused by Southend United, while Lambert was at Colchester. On 2 May Lambert and Norwich secured promotion to the Premier League after a win over Portsmouth, taking the second automatic spot with one game to spare. Lambert signed a new contract keeping him at the club during the summer."

 

FRANK DE BOER

 

Won Dutch league in his first season in charge and highly tipped to one day take one of the 'bigger' managerial jobs. Flowing football too much for Man U at Old Trafford.

 

The wildcard. :lol:

 

DAN PETRESCU

 

Unirea Urziceni

 

About a week later, he was appointed as the manager of Romanian Liga 1 newly-promoted team Unirea Urziceni, with which he has had considerable success since then. Under his management, Unirea Urziceni was runner-up in the 2007–08 Romanian Cup and qualified for the 2008–09 edition of the UEFA Cup. He was considered for the vacant manager's position at his former club Steaua after Marius Lăcătuş's resignation in October 2008. Dorinel Munteanu was appointed instead, but Petrescu has not ruled out a future role at the club. In May 2009, he went on to win the Liga 1 title with outsiders Unirea Urziceni, the first title for both Petrescu and his club, and consequently achieving qualification to the UEFA Champions League 2009–10, during which he led Unirea to a shock 4–1 victory at Ibrox against Rangers and a win against Sevilla FC at home, 1–0. He is the first Romanian coach to obtain 8 points in a UEFA Champions League group.

 

Petrescu resigned as manager of Unirea Urziceni in December 2009.[6]

[edit] Kuban Krasnodar

 

On 28 December 2009 the Russian First Division club FC Kuban Krasnodar hired the former Unirea Urziceni coach on a five-year deal.[7]

 

Dan Petrescu managed to gain the promotion from first season, winning the 2010 Russian First Division scoring a total of 80 points, with 9 more than the second place. His team conceded only 20 goals in 38 matches.[8]"

 

Been looking around at the new coaches since all the hubhub around AVB and Chelsea. :)

Off the top of my head:

 

Heiko Vogel

 

It's a bit early to judge him, but since taking charge of Basle in October he's taken them to the last sixteen of the Champions League at the expense of Man United. He has them playing some really exciting stuff even if they do look a bit suspect at the back.

 

Antonio Conte

 

Looks to be leading the Old Lady back to the glory days. They're currently unbeaten in Serie A, sitting one point behind Milan with a game in hand and almost certian to return to the Champions League.

 

Domingos Paciencia

 

Recently move to Sporting Lisbon following two fine seasons with Sporting Braga. In his first season they led a league normally dominated by Benfica and Porto for a long period before eventually finishing second. In his second season he led them to the Europa League final beating the likes of Liverpool, Dinamo Kiev and Benfica on the way.

Yeah what Vogel has done with tiny Basel is nothing short of a miracle.

Worth crediting the previous bloke too.

 

Plus like any successful club they have the infrastructure in place to make the job as easy as possible, particularly with the youth setup.

Basel look to have an excellent youth system especially considering the limited size of the catchment area and relative weakness of competition. obviously the two managers have done a professional job but the side itself is quite talented in its own right.

 

that APOEL manager seems to have done a good job - got a real chance of making the next round of the champions league.

Isn't it Sa Pinto trying his hand at management with Sporting currently?

 

Really like Basel this year. Hope they knock Bayern out.
