Arsenal's Arsene Wenger easy but can you name the other 5 year managers left standing?

 Football News 24/ 
As Nottingham Forest become the 20th Championship club to name a new manager since August 1st, 2015 the state of the managerial merry-go round comes into stark view. Forest, like many clubs had a reputation of sticking with the same boss once.

For those who are old enough Nigel Clough was in charge at the City Ground from January 1975 until May 1993 - over 18 years. His successor Frank Clarke lasted three years but since then they have had 23 managers including today's appointment Philippe Montanier (including caretakers).

Looking at the top five divisions in England there are only three other managers other than Arsenal's Arsene Wenger who have been in charge for over 5 years.

MK Dons have stuck with their likeable  manager Karl Robinson despite relegation to League 1 and he has been in charge since May 2010.

Exeter in League 2 have been under the wing of Paul Tisdale since 2006 and Gary Hill at National side Woking also breaks the five year barrier. Steve Davies has until November to be in charge at Crewe having taken over from Dario Gradi in November 2011.

And that's it!
