Bob Paisley

not by much, but he managed to complete his three european cups in a much shorter length of time, also the european competition was a completely different set up. all cups were ko stages, no such things as group stages therefore you cannot afford losses OR draws (as it leads to penalties) and it basically means its anyones game when its penalties.

the only down side to Bob Paisley compares to Ferguson is he never built 3-4 teams that keeps winning. and maybe football was not as competitive then as compared to the modern game? arguable though.

this is just my opinion. both true greats and are scottish! lol

Re: Sir Alex Ferguson Vs Bob Paisley who is/was the better manager

pretty hard to decide between these two but my vote would have to go with ferguson

in the modern game there is so much more you have to deal with

such as players being on astronomical sums of money which in turn gives them more power than from the old coach/boss footballer/employee it used to be in paisley's era

plus media intrusion,its much harder in the modern era aswell to actually keep hold of good players due to how connected its become due to t.v coverage

and the fact that ferguson has managed to keep his job for so long when the modern trend is to kick the manager if he loses 3 games on the bounce(slight exaggeration but you see my point) is amazing

don't get be wrong both fantastic, but personally i think any manager would be on the losing side against fergie when it comes to individual performances/honours/career.
