  26. ^ Some regard Busby as the fourth-longest serving League manager after Fred Everiss (1902 to 1948, West Bromwich Albion), George Ramsay (1884 to 1926, Aston Villa) and Frank Watt (1895 to 1930, Newcastle United). However, these three held the title of club secretary rather than manager, and only had a limited influence over training and selection. By modern-day standards, Busby is the longest-serving manager.
  27. ^ Leroy Rosenior lost his job at Torquay just 10 minutes after being introduced as the Devon club's new manager. The then Chairman Mike Bateson called him to say he had just sold the club to a group led by Colin Lee, who reinstated himself as director of football only a matter of days after being made redundant by the club.
