Port Vale haven’t had an easy time of things in recent years, but fans are now hoping that Darrell Clarke is going to be the man that leads them back up the Football League.
The Valiants have been stuck in League Two for four seasons now, although progress was made in the curtailed 2019/20 campaign as points per game meant that they finished eighth and just outside the play-offs, as opposed to the back-to-back 20th-placed finishes the two seasons prior.
Ideally Vale could probably push to the Championship given the right kind of backing, and that’s a level they haven’t seen since the year 2000.
Including Clarke, Vale have had 13 permanent managers since the turn of the millennium, but who has the best points per game record out of them all?
Well you’re about to find out, as we rank the 10th best Vale manager to the leader in PPG from the last 20 years!
