By the time Weir appeared in the Uefa Cup final for Walter Smith's Rangers he was 38 and already "coaching to a certain degree on the pitch. That was a massive learning tool for me, just seeing how things develop on the pitch and working with a great manager with the ability to ask him questions and ask why he did things and him explaining why". If Smith provided lessons in man-management — with his "sixth sense in regards to what people needed at a particular time" — Weir's education continued during a month spell back at Everton as he helped out Alan Stubbs with the Unders.

Weir speaks with admiration of Moyes' infectious work ethic and organisation, and cites his move to Old Trafford as a source of encouragement for all home-grown coaches. Club career Falkirk appearances, eight goals , Hearts apps, seven goals , Everton apps, 10 goals , Rangers apps, four goals. Of the Everton team that qualified for the Champions League under David Moyes in , six are now coaching:.
In terms of stature, Wolverhampton Wanderers tower over the rest. The task for Kenny Jackett is to address the decay that has led to the club being relegated in two successive seasons. He needs to impose the right values — as he did at Millwall — but they have the players and the resources to bounce straight back.

Brentford have their own trauma to recover from, after last season's painful last-minute defeat to Doncaster, before losing the play-off final to Yeovil Town. But Uwe Rosler knows how to get them playing and they should compete. Sheffield United went close last year and new manager David Weir could provide the edge they have been missing. Can anyone arrest the downward momentum of Coventry City?
Likely to play this season in Northampton, they are moving in the wrong direction fast and they may struggle again. Shrewsbury narrowly escaped relegation last season and despite some smart additions last summer they will have to fight hard to stay afloat, as will Notts County. After 10 years of service at Bolton, Kevin Davies finally left this summer but he could be the perfect man to help Preston North End back up. The year-old striker has the experience and the hunger to make a difference in the third tier. Highly rated at Arsenal as a youngster, he has yet to find his level in the professional game.
Graham Alexander, the Preston and Burnley legend, did not have the best start when he took over as manager at Fleetwood last December, but he has the resources to take them up this season. Chesterfield, who finished last season strongly, are well-backed, as are Cheltenham, who have reached the play-offs for the last two years. At Exeter, manager Paul Tisdale has the expertise to sneak his team up through the play-offs. Even after the appointment of James Beattie as manager, Accrington Stanley may struggle. They were close to dropping down last season and have not strengthened their squad.
Torquay may not have the players needed to keep them up either. Dave Kitson, the former Reading and Stoke City striker, has moved to Oxford United where, if he can rediscover his best form, he could still score more than enough goals to make a difference.
