Newcastle United - Manager Menagerie : A Statistical and Anecdotal Overview of Newcastle United's Managers
After many years of following "the Toon," meeting some fascinating people, all with stories to tell, and arguments to have, about who is the best player, manager, the greatest game, etc., I was inspired to create a 'statistical journey' through the history of Newcastle United. This took the form of my website "toon1892.com" and as a direct product of that, following many requests for a reference manual, "Newcastle United Manager Menagerie" was born. In this book you will find all the statistics covering every manager from 1892 to 2015. From how many games they managed, to how many games they won, drew or lost to how many goals their teams scored and conceded and in what competitions. If you ever wanted to know exactly how any manager performed, or compare any manager to others - this book has the statistics for you to do this.

About MR Kenneth H Scott
Born and bred in Newcastle and raised on a staple diet of stories of Hughie Gallacher from my Grandfather and Jackie Milburn from my Father there was never any doubt about where my football loyalties would lay. Going to St James's Park for the first time as a child and seeing Newcastle play a goalless draw with Everton, which if memory serves me correctly was an instantly forgettable game from a football point of view - but to me it was just amazing. I'd never seen so many people in the same place at the same time before, almost 30,000 - I was hooked straight away. Now, after more years than I care to remember, it's all about sharing the history of, to me, the greatest football club in the world with all you good people out there.
