Alf Ramsey is the greatest English manager of all time, not only is he the only one to get to a world cup final, but won it too.

He also took Ipswich Town from Div 3 to Div 1. Not an easy feat!!

He also introduced the 'Wingless Wonders' style of play to English football, in which he dropped attacking wingers for midfielder's who could attack and defend equally. This led to England winning the World Cup.

He was also England's first proper manager as he was first to have complete control over quad selection and set up. Winterbottom did not.

No other English manager has achieved what he did with what he had.

Has no-one thought of Sir Bobby Robson? His record is also amazing, and took England to World Cup Semi Final. He comes second in my mind.

And like vancam said, Alex Ferguson is not English, so doesn't count. And he would be annoyed at being called English too.

He gets my vote just for the simple fact that his name is "Winterbottom"!
