Ramos, Carver and more... the Premier League's worst managers ever?

Premier League

Tottenham, Blackburn, Manchester City, Newcastle and Fulham have all suffered some of the worst coaches in Premier League history.

1. Juande Ramos - Tottenham Hotspur

Juande Ramos did win a League Cup with Tottenham and has never relegated a Premier League side. He might have done had he not been sacked, though, after guiding Spurs - usually not within 10 places of the drop zone - to their worst ever start and leaving them bottom of the table.

When a manager comes in and emphasises too much ketchup being a big problem, you have to question whether his leadership has any substance at all. And, as Tottenham fans soon found out, it didn't.

2. Steve Kean - Blackburn Rovers

Few men have been as unsuccessful and unpopular as Steve Kean at Blackburn. Not only did Kean fail to make any impact whatsoever on the pitch with Rovers, his grand claims and stubborn personality alienated Blackburn supporters from the off.

3. Stuart Pearce - Manchester City

Stuart Pearce had some good moments at Manchester City and never sank as low as many have in the hot seat at Premier League clubs.

But the manager, whose lack of real football knowledge has been exposed recently since during punditry, demonstrated plenty of incompetence at Manchester City and will always be remembered for producing a season in which so few home goals were scored.

4. John Carver - Newcastle United

The daddy of struggling coaches. John Carver never looked like a leader since the moment he was thrown in as Newcastle United boss following Alan Pardew's exit.

Carver desperately tried every method in the book - being hard on his players, praising them, calling them out publicly, dropping them - and his problem was that desperation showed just how clueless he really was.

Sadly for the Magpies, Steve McClaren's awful job at Newcastle since will have Carver still feeling like he is 'the best coach in the Premier League.'

5. Felix Magath - Fulham

For those who feel they have suffered, Felix Magath may have taken things to a new low at Fulham. The majority of his incompetence came in the Championship once the Cottagers were already relegated - and the German given a full pre-season to almost bring the club to its knees.

But Magath tried to heal injuries with cheese, became despised by Fulham's players and drove his squad past their physical limits with his crazed obsession for fitness over... seemingly anything else.

Paul Jewell, Gareth Southgate, Roy Keane... who else deserves a spot?
