Herbert Chapman. Won (or at least laid the foundations for) three consecutive league titles with two different clubs: Hudderfield (24, 25, 26) & Arsenal (33, 34, 35). Sadly the great man died of pnuemonia in 1934, so didn't live to see the 2nd & 3rd titles at Arsenal, but it was certainly his team. The feat wasn't repeated until Liverpool did it it 82, 83 & 84. Impressive IMHO.
Can't ignore Shankly, Clough, Ramsey, Cullis or Catterick either.

For a start, Clough won 2 Championships, 2 European Cups and 4 League Cups (plus he won the second division twice, which I presume you aren't counting), which, unless my maths has seriously gone to pot, adds up to eight.
Secondly, all the managers in your poll, Busby aside perhaps, managed big sides and were far more likely to win trophies (especially the Celtic/Rangers managers listed) than Shankly and Clough, who took their sides from in the second division to the top of the English game. Their acheivements have to be measured in an entirely different way

Ye the Rangers/Celtic managers in there are a joke. Its easy for them to win something, its 50% at end of season, only two teams in Scotland.

From those named, I'd go for Paisley but a tactical vote to stop Taggart...
