First topic message reminder :

The Premier League Manager of the Season award should be announced shortly. There are a few stand-out candidates:

Nigel Pearson - Leicester have spent most of the season in the bottom three, but look like they'll be safe now. Despite their position, they've played positive football all season, and have now found results to match. The size of his task is shown by the fact that the other two promoted sides have gone straight back down, despite Leicester probably being favourites of the three to do so.

Alan Pardew - If Pulis got Manager of the Season last year for keeping Palace up after a bad start to the season, then surely Pardew deserves as much credit for turning round the shambles Warnock left behind? 18th when he took over, they now look a decent side with plenty of attacking threat and are safely ensconced in the mid-table.

Tim Sherwood - Divides opinions on his quality as a manager, but there's no denying he's turned Villa's season around, and has rejuvenated a number of players who were performing way under their potential. Cleverley, Benteke, Delph all look massively improved under his stewardship.

Garry Monk - Was seen as something of a risk after taking over from Laudrup, but has guided Swansea to the top 8 and their highest league points total.

Are there any other candidates? Koeman's done a great steadying job. In December Big Sam would have looked a shoo-in.

Who do you think will get it? My money's on Sherwood, though all of these four deserve massive plaudits.

Keeping a team in the league is an achievement, but they've been in the bottom three most of the year and will finish close to the pack that go down, not outstripping them and taking a surprise top 12 finish. Leicester, in contrast to Burnley, could spend about £15m on Kramaric and Ulloa, whilst afford the wages of Huth and Cambiasso.

they had the second lowest wage bill in the prem this season, only behind burnley

and half of what qpr, newcastle and sunderland all spent yet still above them in the league
The article's clearly based on last season, it says as much in the first paragraph.

Not only did he keep Palace up, but his results also kept Newcastle up as well.

2 teams saved in one year? That's unprecidented!
