Unusual stat 16:38 - Mar 4 with 1979 viewssyntaxerror

We have the longest serving manager outside of the Premier League, and the 4th longest in the top 4 leagues.

Only Wenger, Dyche and Eddie Howe have been in their jobs longer than Mick.

Edit: I am wrong, the Morcombe manager was appointed in 2011.
Still, it surprised me.

Still a McCarthy supporter, but he and Dyche were appointed to their respective jobs in the same week. Wonder what might have been had they swapped roles.

We’re what Burnley were when Dyche went there - mid table fodder - albeit Owen Coyle had taken them up, but he had jumped ship at the first opportunity of a bigger job (Bolton Wanderers!), Eddie Howe went there and looked as happy to be there as Tommy Oar, before escaping back to Bournemouth. They looked likely to drift on, a perpetual irrelevance. He kept them up and they never looked back.

When will it be our turn?

But other than that, we have the longest serving manager outside the top flight ...

with the invisible man at the helm - either never, or a very long time away.

Jim Bentley has been at Morcambe for the past 16 years altogether, including his playing career.

His 13th appearance for the club was at Portman Road in the FA Cup, where he was sent off after 20 minutes. It remains the only time I remember the home fans booing the referee for sending off a player on the away side.

And kids, you'll have to trust me on this, we actually won the match 4-0.

Tisdale stared 2006 - I do fail at reading :D

But unless BBC have it wrong:
Ainsworth started a week after Mick

16 years ago would be about right when we last scored 4

i jest of course, but it does feel like that
