Via The Two Unfortunates

icon managerstay30 November ~ Exeter City’s Paul Tisdale is the second longest serving manager in English football, behind only Arsène Wenger, having joined the club in 2006. When he started there the Grecians were in the Conference, but Tisdale led them to back-to-back promotions and they finished eighth in League One in 2011, before relegation back to League Two the following season. WSC contributor Gary Andrews has charted the complicated relationship between Tisdale and Exeter for The Two Unfortunates, and explains why the club have stuck by their managers when others may have dispensed with his services.
