The Premier League is a professional football league in England which is the top tier of the English football league system. The league was formed in 1992 as a replacement for the original First Division.

Premier League Association football league in England

The Premier League is the top level of the English football league system. Contested by 20 clubs, it operates on a system of promotion and relegation with the English Football League (EFL).

England Country in north-west Europe, part of the United Kingdom

England is a country that is part of the United Kingdom. It shares land borders with Wales to the west and Scotland to the north. The Irish Sea lies west of England and the Celtic Sea to the southwest. England is separated from continental Europe by the North Sea to the east and the English Channel to the south. The country covers five-eighths of the island of Great Britain, which lies in the North Atlantic, and includes over 100 smaller islands, such as the Isles of Scilly and the Isle of Wight.

The English football league system, also known as the football pyramid, is a series of interconnected leagues for men's association football clubs in England, with five teams from Wales, one from Guernsey and one from Jersey also competing. The system has a hierarchical format with promotion and relegation between leagues at different levels, allowing even the smallest club the theoretical possibility of ultimately rising to the very top of the system, although in practice it would take a team at the bottom levels at least two decades of consistently finishing at or near the top of each successive league to reach the top level, and even then additional restrictions, particularly in regard to stadium facilities, would then come into effect at the highest levels that could prevent a club from being allowed access to the top levels. There are more than 140 individual leagues, containing more than 480 divisions.

Arsène Wenger holds the record for most games managed in the Premier League with 828 games, all with Arsenal. He broke the record set by Alex Ferguson, who had managed 810 games with Manchester United from the Premier League's inception to his retirement at the end of the 2012–13 season. Ferguson, however, remains the most successful manager in the Premier League, having won thirteen titles, more than four times as many as any other manager. [1]

Many of the managers listed below served as caretaker (temporary) managers in the period between a managerial departure and appointment. Several of these, however, went on to secure a permanent managerial post.

Managers

The list of managers includes everyone who has managed clubs while they were in the Premier League, whether in a permanent or temporary role. Caretaker managers are listed only when they managed the team for at least one match in that period.

The dates of appointment and departure may fall outside the club's period in the Premier League, for example, Ron Atkinson was appointed as Aston Villa manager in 1991 (before the Premier League was formed in 1992) and remained in his position through the Premier League's establishment. Similarly, Wolverhampton Wanderers' first spell in the Premier League lasted for only one season (2003–04) but manager Dave Jones remained in his position until November 2004.

Ron Atkinson Football player, manager and commentator

Formed as St Luke's F.C. in 1877, they have played at Molineux Stadium since 1889 and compete in the Premier League, the top tier of English football, after winning the 2017–18 EFL Championship. Wolves will compete in the 2019–20 UEFA Europa League, the first time the club has qualified for a European tournament for thirty-nine years, by virtue of finishing in seventh-place in the 2018–19 Premier League in their first season back in the top tier.

2003–04 FA Premier League

The 2003–04 FA Premier League was the 12th season of the Premier League. Arsenal were the champions and Chelsea, who had spent heavily throughout the season, were the runners up. Arsenal ended the season without a single defeat – the first team ever to do so in a 38-game league season and the second team overall.
