Plus: more clubs named after political figures and the fateful tale of an overly hasty ballgirl. Mail us your questions and answers or tweet @TheKnowledge_GU“Martin Allen has just been appointed as Barnet’s manager for the fifth time. Is this a record? If not, which manager has had the most stints at one club?” asks George Jones. “Mad Dog” would define the term “well-travelled manager”, having had 12 separate stints, were it not for his frequent returns to Barnet, a club to which he has not been completely loyal. After each of his previous four stints, from March 2003 to March 2004, three matches in 2010-11, three more at the end of the 2011-12 season, and his longest spell, two-and-a-half years that ended in December 2016, he has taken up a better offer, the last when moving to Eastleigh. This time, he has eight matches to prevent the bottom club from dropping out of the Football League.
