What is this?

This site examines the distance between the birth place of football managers and their football grounds. Click on any of the team links on the drop-down list to see other teams. It was inspired by my son asking me if Arsene Wenger was the furthest away of any premier league manager. The answer is no. This page shows the combined map of all managers.

Managers come and go during the season, so I keep a record of what changes in the following table and a league of distances on the about page.

Change Mean Median
13 Aug Season Start 1464 km 923 km
2 Oct Swansea - Bob Bradley 1666 km 923 km
23 Dec Crystal Palace - Sam Allardyce 1675 km 923 km
3 Jan Swansea - Paul Clement 1408 km 752 km
5 Jan Hull - Marco Silva 1491 km 923 km
12 Mar Leicester - Craig Shakespeare 1416 km 752 km

Note: interim managers are not included...and yes, I know I should get out more.
