Bradford City head coach Stuart McCall has been voted by you as the 14th best manager in the EFL.

Over the last month, we have been gathering votes from you to find the best manager and players in the EFL. And after counting the votes, we have discovered that you think McCall is the 14th best manager in the Football League.

Under Phil Parkinson, Bradford made it to the Play Offs last season, falling in the semi finals to Millwall. However Parkinson left to go to Bolton Wanderers after this where he has earned the Whites automatic promotion. To counteract this, the Bantams brought in Stuart McCall for his second spell at the club as manager, the last ending in 2013.

Including his playing days, McCall is just reaching 16 years at Bradford, on four different occasions. This time around he finished in fifth place, identical to the finish last season. And while that may seem like the club hasn’t progressed since last year, that doesn’t take into account the fact very few players were left at the end of last season. That meant as soon as McCall was brought into Valley Parade, he had to rebuild the squad so to match last season’s efforts after doing that was a massive achievement for the club.

Bradford’s season did continue thanks to the play-offs and now they have a date at Wembley after beating Fleetwood Town in the semi-finals. They will be facing Millwall, the team that dispatched them from the play-offs last year.
