Manager Of The Year Awards Eurovision Styleby Mike Holden / 10 May 2016, 11:28Tweet
It's Eurovision week, so what better way to celebrate than with a Manager of the Year competition in the time-honoured Eurovision format?
We've enlisted an esteemed panel of journalists, bloggers, broadcasters, betting industry professionals and match-going fans from all 92 English clubs and we asked them all to vote for their top ten managers of the 2015/16 season in their respective divisions.
Each club had one representative and they weren't allowed to vote for the man in charge of their own team. And all 92 of them made their choices completely independently of everyone else.

- Latics Boss Caldwell Doubles Up To Scoop League One Prize
- Surprise As Hughton Storms To Championship Success
- No surprises as Ranieri Routs Premier League Rivals
The process is both thorough and extensive, making the end results difficult to dispute. But this is Eurovision remember, so don't be too surprised if you spot the odd historical link between certain clubs and managers, not to mention a bit of geographical bias here and there!
The results of the competition will be published over the next four days with links through to the identity of our panelists and how they voted, while our master of ceremonies, The Sack Race columnist Mike Holden (@Ratings_Mike), will offer his input on how he would have voted in each division, explaining his choices along the way.
Don't worry, though. You can get involved too. Each day, we'll open a Twitter vote on the top four managers for each division, giving the public at large the opportunity to correct anything they might consider an injustice.
We start with League Two on Tuesday 10th May through to the Premier League on Friday 13th. Make sure you're following The Sack Race Twitter feed for all the latest updates.
