It was in an old Guardian Knowledge article I found it. Off you go with a new question... if anyone else is still out there!

Okay... without Googling... name the last permanent managers of these three Premier League teams, prior to the present manager :

a) Bournemouth
b) Brighton
c) Huddersfield.

:D :D :D :D
Isn't this whole thread just the BCB Googling championships, but done by people clever enough – and prepared to put in the effort – to make the fact that they googled it a fraction less conspicuous?

When I read this question I wished it was Bournemouth and Burnley and two (maybe three) managers previous. Then I think the answer to both would have been Eddie Howe. As it is, I haven't a clue.

And which team is the biggest yo-yo club in terms of moving between the top two divisions?


Have both these been answered?

I think Brighton was Sammi Hyppia and Huddersfield Chris Powell. Can't remember Bournemouth.

The only name is can conjure up for Bournemouth is Steven Fletcher but I'm not at all sure he was ever even permanent manager.

Big Fletch hasn't been Bournemouth's manager, he was assistant for a while - less than a season I think.
