Brian Horton was the Manchester City manager in 1993 until May 1995. During his time, the club finished 16th and 17th in the league table thanks to key players such as Uwe Rosler, scoring over 20 goals in his second season, and the Ireland legend player – Niall Quinn.
9. Stuart Pearce – 35.05%
At first Stuart Pearce worked as a caretaker manager, replacing Kevin Keegan, but after a fine start to the Etihad; he was given the job as head manager.
The following season Man City was struggled to finish 15th, despite the appearance of Darius Vassell and Andy Cole, as they lost nine of their final ten league games. The following season things were even worse as his players scored less than ten goals at home all season. That year he was fired by City in May.

The former England boss was hired by chairman Thaksin Shinawatra, who also signed contracts with Martin Petrov and Vedran Corluka in that same summer. In his first few games, City beat Man Utd and standee on top of the table after three games. They famously defeated Man United for the first time since the 1969/70 season, although they finished the season poorly with an 8-1 trashing by Middlesbrough, and Eriksson left his posy via mutual consent in the summer.
7. Joe Royle – 43.02%
