Quiz! Can you name every England manager 1946-present?

Sam Allardyce England manager

The role of England manager was established in 1946, when the Football Association finally decided that getting one bloke to pick a team was better than bickering via committee. 

Since then, no manager has outlasted the man they gave the job to first; a 16-year, 139-match association that only one other Three Lions gaffer – his predecessor – got anywhere close to. Only another 132 games to go, Gareth! 

It’s supposed to be the biggest job for an English national, but many (nay, most) have found it to be more of a poisoned chalice. Some of them have had the audacity to not even be English – and how the tabloids enjoyed that for the first time.

So today’s quiz is simple: name every England manager from 1946 to now. Most of them should come straight off the top with ease, which is handy because you’ve only got three minutes to do this. Who can get them quickest? Tell us with proof @FourFourTwo – retweets up for grabs.
