the manager gets too much credit when things go well and too much blame when they go badly

Absolutely. Most of the time. A well-written article I've just found, suggests that perhaps 80% of managers are just average, and that only 10% of the very best and 10% of the very worst really make any difference to a team's performance, when other factors, such as wages are taken into account. The teams and managers in the article at elite level, admittedly, but I don't suppose there's much reason to believe other levels would be any different. Most results, this article suggests, are more affected by a team's luck than their manager! Studies quoted in the article reckon that "replacing one manager with another will statistically have no more impact than fans starting to go to games in a pair of lucky socks"!!
