    11/4 with Paddies. I think it’s a good bet, to my mind he has had a far greater affect than Pellligrini when it comes to improving his existing players and imposing on them a style of attractive football.
    Not many voters will like Mourinho. He has never won this competition. Pelligrini’s team is financially doped. Rogers is a homegrown success who has exceeded expectations far beyond any other manager in the division. The amount of changed managers this season means only Wenger and Pulis are other possible winners. I don’t think Pulis will win it although he has done a great job. Wenger would probably need to win the double to win it but he has also done a good job.

    You may say that the team that wins the league will decide this but a look at previous winners does not suggest this: Moyes*3, George Burley, Alan Curbishley, Steve Coppell *2, Pardew, Hodgson have all won.

    What do posters think?

    Clearly has a chance but only if LFC finish top or within 3 points of the winning team I think. Clearly if Arsenal win Wenger will win as that would be an excellent achievement, Chelsea or City doing it would feel like financial doping in action so the LMA might reward either Wenger or Rodgers for a close 2nd and if that was the choice then the greater points improvement of Liverpool would be most likely to be rewarded.

    That's how I see it.

    I'd say Martinez would have a good shout to that claim...

    Martinez has been great but his side have faltered, probably due to lack of investment, and are likely to finish in around the same place as they did last year.

    Maybe next year.
