I’m still a little bit undecided when it comes to the Manager of the Year debate.
I said in the past that if Liverpool’s Jürgen Klopp had gone on to do the double of reaching 100 points and going unbeaten, then it should be his hands down, but with neither of those achieved, it should have gone to Chris Wilder.
However, that was on the assumption that he’d get us through to Europe, which would have been a remarkable achievement with the lowest team budget in the division. At the end of the day, 9th is still a pretty good achievement, but Manager of the Year worthy? I can still be persuaded either way on that one.
Should Wilder have won the award?
These fans however, not all of them Sheffield United fans, twere
Again Absolutely robbed

more convinced on the matter. When Wilder was announced as coming 2nd in the voting for LMA Manager of the Year, there was plenty of uproar with many fans convinced that he was robbed of the honour by the German.
No way on earth that Klopp gets United to 9th on a shoestring budget. Wilder would've done bottle of pop's job with the £££s he's had. Wilder is MOTY for my money. Done a tremendous job.

I think they both deserved top billing. 2nd behind Klopp is nothing to be ashamed of after their season.

Liverpool May have won league but Sheff Utd weren’t expected to be promoted last season and definrlty weren’t expected to fight for Europe! Top quality manager who did it the right way and fought his way up the leagues

Really is a joke he didn’t win the Manager of the Year award.

What about you? Do you think Wilder should have won Manager of the Year?
