And stay with them a fair while. No jotting off to better clubs.

Well, obviously you can't become a legend for a club you're not managing.

No, I meant that two years of success isn't enough, irrespective of how good that success is, you need to be at the club for the long haul.

can you give me some rough time frames and a gauge of how successful you have to be?

I'm at Tottenham and have won back to back Premier League title's, Defoe and Modric went from nothing to favoured then icon to legend in two years, while i've stayed at favoured. Now the only reason those two players have gotten to be legends is because of my system.

It took me five seasons to become an Icon at Man Utd. So, yeah. Takes a while ;)

5 seasons to become an Icon is actually pretty fast.

it has taken 6 Season as manager of Leeds United to become an icon at the club, winning 1 European Champions Cup, 2 Premier Leagues and 2 Fa Cups as well as a few other cups in that time, so yeah... you need to be there a while even with plenty of success.

I was at Southampton for 9 1/2 seasons, took them from the bottom of League One to 6th in the Premier League winning the JPT, League One title and League Cup along the way as well as making an FA Cup final appearance and qualifying for Europe 3 consecutive seasons. I was only ever listed as favoured personnel. I still am actually despite having moved on.

I guess it all depends which club you're at and what qualifies as "success" for that club. Two minor trophies and a few games in Europe wouldn't have got me anywhere with Man United or Chelsea.

I have been at Plymouth 5 years won promotion to the PL and survived in 15th (predicted 20th) in the first season and I'm not even on the faovured personel. Tom Dickinson a regen right winger is on the favoured list despite the fact he has only played 4 or 5 good games :D

I'm a legend at Milan, 12 seasons, won 10 Leagues, 3 Champions and other trophies. As far as I remember i became a legend in my 8th or 9th season.

I became a legend at De Graafschap after 5 years having gone from jupiler league to three straight eredivise titles. Moved to Spurs and it took around eight years there.

It seems to be directly linked to trophies, rather than success. I got my San Marino side from Serie C2 to Serie A but haven't won any trophies and been there eight season, I'm not even favoured personnel.

Took me 6 seasons of winning almost everything with Liverpool to become a legend. Stayed for another 2, stayed a legend when I left the club.

Though I'm only favoured personnel at Spurs right now. My time will come.

I become a legend with Oxford after winning the treble (premiership, Europa League and Carling Cup) in the same season. Before that i was just favoured personal even after getting into the premiership.

A treble is always in the same season ;).

I'm in my 10th season as Southampton boss, won League 1, the JPT, The Championship, just won back to back Premier League titles, lost in the FA Cup and Champions League final's last year - and I'm not even favoured!
