I don't think anyone outside Swansea would put Potter in their top 5 Championship managers this season. Look at what Lampard has done in his first season of management with that Derby squad, whose best three players are 20-22 with less than a full season of senior experience apiece. Media hype aside, as a direct comparison Lampard's done amazingly well to take them to a playoff final from where they started the season, cost-cutting a bang-average squad.Dean Smith turned Villa's season around. Steve Bruce at Wednesday as well, hopeless before he arrived. Adkins took relegation favourites with only two good players into mid-table security and almost a playoff push. Farke and Wilder up automatically despite strict budgets and off the field disruptions (Sheff Utd's ownership fiasco may see him move on despite promotion). Lee Johnson managed 70 points without a goalscorer in the squad, on a budget a fraction of most of the division.
