The League Managers Association Awards is an annual award ceremony in English football, awarded by the League Managers Association. The most prestigious award is the LMA Manager of the Year award. It is presented to a manager from any division for his achievements in the prior season. The award is voted by fellow professional managers and as a result consideration is also given to managers who inherit poor sides or financial difficulties and not only those managers who do not have such financial constraints and have won trophies. On only five occasions has the Premier League winning manager won the award compared with the Premier League Manager of the Year award which has been won on all but four occasions by the league champion.

LMA Manager of the Year[edit]

The LMA Manager of the Year Award is voted by fellow managers and the winner can come from any of the four professional leagues. To date only three have come from outside the Premier League: 1996 winner Peter Reid, who led Sunderland to the Division One title; 1997 winner Danny Wilson, who guided Barnsley into the Premier League; and 2006 winner Steve Coppell, who led Reading to win the Championship. However on only five occasions has the winner of the top flight won the award.[citation needed]
