Quiz! Can you name every Premier League club's last five permanent managers?

With the new version of Football Manager released as a Beta version last night, we're gone a little gaffer crazy here at FFT Towers.

Watford have already changed manager this season. Doubts hang over the dugouts of Old Trafford, Goodison Park, the Emirates, and the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. Meanwhile, the Halloweenish presence of Jose Mourinho looms large over all of them. The managerial merry-go-round truly never stops.

In fact, the constant churn of top-flight coaches mean that, for this quiz, most sides' answers barely reach back to the beginning of the decade. 

We’ll stop here before giving away any answers – although frankly, you’ll have your work cut out with this quiz if you can’t name the current crop of gaffers. Although there are 100 answers here, many of the managers are worth multiple points – including one particular boss who’s yet to be parachuted in for a struggling drop-dodger this term. Still, plenty of time yet.

Since this is both a) hefty and b) hard, we’ve given you a generous 20 minutes to get it done. After you’ve finished, please do tell us your scores @FourFourTwo – we have no idea what a ‘good’ score is for this, but we'll happily retweet yours to see how you all compare. After that, share it around with some friends why don’t you?
