Darren Ferguson.

Recommended Posts

"Shortly after his father celebrated twenty years as manager of Manchester United, Darren followed him into football management. On 20 January 2007 he left Wrexham to become player-manager of fellow League Two side Peterborough United. Previous manager Keith Alexander had been sacked after a run of six straight defeats.[6] He led the club to a 10th placed finish in his first season of management. In his first full season of management, he took Peterborough to second place in League Two, thus gaining them promotion.

 

He was named League Two manager of the month for March 2008, after they won six games out of eight in the month. Ferguson had led them to the top of the league, with a run of thirteen wins and three draws in sixteen games.

 

This second full season, currently the 08/09 season, he has led Peterborough to second place and if they maintain that position they will get automatic promotion to the English Championship. He has also won the League One Manager of the Month award for March 2009, following 6 straight wins, including a 1-0 victory over local rivals Northampton Town, after Gabriel Zakuani was sent off after 7 minutes, and a 2-0 victory over then league leaders an Coca Cola Football League 1 Champions Leicester City."

 

 

Anybody rate the son of red nose?

We'd be far better going for a young manager who has proved themselves in the lower leagues than getting an out-of-date codger like Kinnear back imo.

He's managing their reserves or one of their underage teams at the minute isn't he? Can't see him being given the big job on the back of that.

To be honest i dont rate Darren Ferguson, yes he has done a great job but when you look at it there is no surprise. The money he has had available to him since Darragh Macanthony (spelling?) brought the club is why they are doing so well, they paid £400k for Joe Lewis as well a relatively large sums for Aaron Maclean, Craig Macail Smith and George Boyd (good player and nice bloke, if we get relegated would like us to have a punt on him). These are just some of the higher profile players who have done well. You can then take into account money wasted on flops like Scott Rendell. Yes, Ferguson and Peterborough have done very well and i think they will continue to do so but Peterborough's success has stemmed from the 'Big Ron Manager' series which encouraged Macanthony to buy them out, not Ferguson.
