The Managers/Coaches using Black Players since 1978

This is a list to show how often black players feature in each of the England manager's tenure.  It gives a detailed list of each manager with their time in charge of the national side, and how many games they managed.  This is followed by the number of players used by each manager and how many of those players where winning a cap for the first time.  In comparison, the number of black players used and making debuts from the same period is noted.  A percentage is derived from these tallies to provide an accurate comparison between the managers.

Greenwood's record begins with Match No. 526, 29 November 1978, the first game a black player appeared.  We have only counted his record from this match in fairness to Ron Greenwood and for comparative purposes only.

Venables' record includes Match No. 709, 15 February 1995, abandoned because of crowd violence after 27 minutes at Lansdowne Road, Dublin with the Republic of Ireland leading 1-0, because caps were awarded, despite no official result being reached.
