Grayson - Good or great?

Simon Grayson is doing a great job in League one, as he did with Blackpool. However, how far can he go, can he become the best Leeds manager since Revie?

We continually bang on about Jermaine Beckford being a fantastic striker at this level, and believe he could do a job in the championship. Most also believe that he would struggle in the Premiership.
Does this same logic apply to managers?

Take Roberto Martinez a couple of seasons ago at Swansea, everybody was raving about what a good manager he was. He got Swansea promoted and they played some fantastic football.

He then goes to the Premiership with Wigan, who although were not the greatest premiership side ever but under Steve Bruce had a solid defence.
Every week Wigan get a hammering, last game 9-1 v Spurs!

Has Martinez found that management in the Premier league is a different kettle of fish?

So players have to improve massively or step aside as a team moves up the leagues, does this also apply for managers?

What do you think, is Grayson a great League One manager but no more than that or does he have that something special that can make him a Leeds legend?

For what it`s worth, I think he has great potential and hope that he will lead us to great things.
