I got home last night, switched on the television and saw the Sky Sports News yellow bar highlighting the news that Chris Wilder, with Northampton Town, had won the League Two Manager of the Year award. It was followed immediately to report that Wigan Athletic’s Gary Caldwell had lifted the League One award.

That’s League Two and League One winners both having their managers recognised so I waited for confirmation that Sean Dyche had been named for the Championship and admit to being stunned when I saw the name Chris Hughton.

Dyche has great respect for Hughton, he said as much on Goals on Sunday two days ago, but our manager has just taken a team to the title having gone 23 games without defeat while Hughton has ultimately had a season that’s ended in failure after last night’s game.

He’s done a damn good job at Brighton, that goes without saying. They were in the relegation positions when he came in on New Year’s Eve 2014 to replace the sacked Sami Hyypia, but I’m sorry, I find it very difficult to understand how he’s won it unless the voting was carried out in December.

LMA – your system is clearly flawed. Had the voting been carried out later in the season then there could have only been one winner.

I’m not too sure Sean will be that bothered – but in any case, we are the winners, we won the league and we’re going to the Premier League as Champions whether the LMA like it or not.
