Over the last few days, we have been revealing on this website and on our Twitter page who the best managers in the EFL are.

This follows weeks of voting by you, the fans, where you told us who you thought the best managers were. We then simply tallied the votes and came out with the names you have been seeing over the last few days. Of course with such a list there will always be arguments on whether or not it is right, and we’ve seen plenty of comments disagreeing with the list aimed at our Twitter, but in the end we got a list completely decided by you.

But here is the full list of the best players for easy reference, because we are kind. We’ve also provided links to the full article detailing why they have ended up on this list.

20. Paul Cook (Portsmouth)

Cook was voted as the 20th best manager in the EFL after he won the Sky Bet League Two title with Portsmouth.

19. Neil Warnock (Cardiff City)

Warnock was voted as the 19th best manager in the EFL after guiding Cardiff to safety when it seemed destined that they would be in an ugly battle against relegation.

18. Neil Harris (Millwall)

Harris was voted as the 18th best manager in the EFL after he once again was able to get Millwall into the play-offs, bouncing back after suffering the ultimate heartbreak by being beaten by Barnsley in the previous year’s play-off final.

17. Michael Appleton (Oxford United)

Appleton was voted as the 17th best manager in the EFL after he had Oxford challenging for the play-offs just a year after they were promoted to Sky Bet League One.

16. Phil Parkinson (Bolton Wanderers)

Parkinson was voted as the 16th best manager in the EFL after he was able to get Bolton promoted back to the Sky Bet Championship at the first time of asking, something many teams have struggled to do over the years.
