2008/09 - 51%: The son of Sir Alex did the unthinkable and guided Posh to back-to-back promotions to compete in Englands second-tier. Record: 27 victories, 14 draws and 12 losses.
With the club routed to the bottom of the Championship, Ferguson parted company with Posh after winning just five of his opening 20 games with five draws and 10 defeats.
Following an unsuccessful stint at Preston, Ferguson swiftly returned in January 2011 and oversaw his third promotion as Posh manager via the playoffs. In 27 matches, he won 14, drew seven and lost six.
This time, Ferguson was handed the chance to keep Posh in the Championship and he duly delivered, surviving by two points. A mere 13 wins, 12 draws was enough after 24 defeats.
Despite holding a better win percentage and a greater points total from the season prior, Fergusons men slipped under the dreaded relegation line. He finished with 16 wins, 9 draws and 24 losses.
With 31 wins, nine draws and 21 defeats, Ferguson managed Posh to the playoffs but he wasnt to replicate his 2011 success, losing the semi finals to Leyton Orient. He did, however, lift the Johnstones Paint trophy.
Ferguson and Posh continued to suffer from their playoff disappointment, which led to Fergusons departure as the club occupied 15th in L1. He had 13 wins to his name from 36 outings, five draws and 18 defeats.
