Today's Jimmy Hogan Talking Points
James "Jimmy" Hogan (16 October 1882 – 30 January 1974) was an English football player and coach of Irish descent. He is counted amongst the great pioneers of the game on the European continent.
Hogan enjoyed some success as a footballer, reaching an FA Cup Semi-final with Fulham in 1908, but it was as a coach that his abilities shone through.
Upon the outbreak of the First World War Hogan was working in Austria, and was interned as an enemy alien. During this time however he was involved in coaching Hungarian club MTK, actions which were negatively perceived by some in the UK.Close
