Fat Frank could still possibly take Everton down. Jesus, a few good results and you get a manager of the season nomination. As for Vieira, he's done quite well to overhaul the squad and get them to an FA Cup semi but they're in 11th, six points behind us, and we're apparently **** and have lost about 63 of our last 65 games. When Gallagher goes in the summer will be interesting to see how his second season is. If that list is anything to go by I'm surprised that Ted Lasso at Leeds hasn't been nominated too for winning against 10 men at Molineux and talking a good game.Nominations: Pep, Klopp, Howe, Vieira and Frank.
The only other surprise is that they didn’t shoehorn Bielsa in there.
How about Moyes? Potter? Even Bruno was on a bit of a hiding to nothing.
Blows my mind.
Will probably continue while they have the best players due to them having the most money enabling them to pay the biggest fees and wages.
Doesn't seem to bother the pundits does it. I remember when the romance of the "underdog" was a thing, but since the Premier League and Sky became the hegemony there is a general assumption that we all naturally favour the overdog.
Probably Howe. He's genuinely done well.
Vieira there is a joke.
I like Potter too.Potter as well. They're not far off being a serious top 7 contender. Play good stuff too.
Of course they'll just give it Pep for somehow managing to be successful with a team worth 1.2 billion.
Agreed - although at least he’s been there all season and hasn’t invested in a drone….Still a few games of the season to go but at this point Vieira has had a £100m net spend and taken Palace from 14th (1 point behind us) to 11th (6 points behind us) whilst Lage has spent **** all and gone from 13th to 8th…
For me it’s Klopp. Playing every single game you could possibly play in is remarkable. Has that been done before?
Nice! Needed a chuckle.Jesse Marsch and Ralph Hasenhuttl have nominated in the "Excessive use of consonants in my name" category, previously held by Ole Gunnar Solskjær.

And Francisco Javier Muñoz Llompart, ex-Watford, has been awarded the "Thank the Lord he's been sacked" prize, awarded by sports journalists who don't own a spellchecker.
This is bull**** in my opinion. Pep, Klopp and others just sign the best players not much more to it really. It’s like rounding up the best players at school and pitting them against the average ones. 9 times out of 10 there’s only one way it’s going to end. Would Pep be a genius at say Walsall for example? I doubt it. For what it’s worth my manager of the year would go to Potter at Brighton. They play attractive football and have signed players on a fraction of the budget of a lot of other teams
