To be fair he got Crewe to second with Lancashire in the side...

Probably did a better job in all fairness, assume budget was nowhere near ours.

One thing that slightly winds me up is how MOY award generally just automatically goes to whoever wins the league, certainly in the PL anyway, it’s just lazy

Wellens gets L2 manager of the year from the Grauniad.

https://www.theguardian.com/football/2020/aug/07/who-makes-efl-football-league-teams-of-the-season-2019-20

Doyle L2 player of the season too.

Doyle the only Town player to make the team of the season, seems a bit harsh though, especially on Grant.

Quote
Alex Palmer (Plymouth); Perry Ng (Crewe), Ben Tozer (Cheltenham), Charlie Goode (Northampton), Harry Pickering (Crewe); Nicky Adams (Northampton), Jonny Smith (Oldham), George Cooper (Plymouth); Randell Williams (Exeter), Eoin Doyle (Swindon), Charlie Kirk (Crewe)

Quote
Player of the season: Eoin Doyle Nicknamed the ‘Ginger Pelé’, a return of 25 goals in 28 matches goes some way to explaining the moniker. The Dubliner fuelled Swindon’s promotion push but the bad news for League Two defences is that he signed for relegated Bolton last month.

Manager: Richie Wellens (Swindon) The former midfielder led Swindon to the title with a swashbuckling style that has restored fans’ faith. A former Manchester United trainee under Sir Alex Ferguson, Wellens – whose son, Charlie, signed a professional contract at Old Trafford in May – can lean on his former mentor if required. “I did ring Sir Alex up when I first got the job,” he said.

It does seem that many think of us like that for sure.

Obviously we know, and the Guardian's football writers know, that the team of the season should have just been our starting XI but then they'd have been accused of bias so they have to spread the love around a little so all the lesser teams get a look in as well

Or they have been paid by Blackpool to keep the other teams off our scent for potential new signings.

There wasn't a better midfielder than Grant in L2.

It's a good selection to be honest and I think most XIs will include the same players.

There would have been some marginal calls and we hardly romped home (didn't get the chance to). The 'one man team' narrative was quite prominent outside of Town's bubble too.

This was levelled at Tranmere the season before with Norwood where his 29 goals got them promotion, albeit through the play offs.

That was proven true though as Tranmere were relegated without his goals.
