Nobes' Trivia Question 10

Here's another trivia poser for you courtesty of Nobes. For his final one of the decade can you identify the clubs in question from the chain of managers they've had during the Naughties?

And for this special trivia question you've an extra week to come up with the solution.

1. This club began the decade with a manager who joined them from a county rival. He was succeeded by a Scot who won the title in his first full season. When he left he was replaced by a former Kilmarnock manager.

Next in the hotseat was a Welshman and he was followed by a manager who eventually left for a club in the East Midlands. Next was someone in his second spell at the club, and the current manager stepped up from being assistant to take on the top job.

2. A current Premier League manager was in charge of this club in the year 2000, he was sacked and replaced by an experienced Scot. He oversaw a relegation and next in-line was an ex-Carlisle manager.

His successor was eventually a former manager returning for a second spell with the club. When he was sacked four years later the club turned to a former Oldham boss.

He was followed by someone managing his sixth club. In contrast, his replacement - the current boss - is in his first ever manager's job.

3. This club were managed by a Northern Irishman at the start of this century. When he left, a former Manchester United player succeeded him. The next manager eventually resigned his post to focus on being the club's Director of Football.

His successor spent two years in the job - his only managerial role to date. Next up was a playing legend with the club who eventually stepped down to be assistant to a veteran former Hull boss.

When he was sacked the club turned to an ex-England international and his replacement was a former player at this club. The current incumbent has a wealth of experience of managing in both the Football League and Non League.

And the answers will be revealed on January 8 2010.
