The 2020 Nolan Award

Celebrating the angriest opposition manager of the 2019/2020 season.

The Wanderer is delighted to once again present the Nolan Award,

named in honour of aneurism-on-legs Kevin Nolan and awarded each

year to the angriest opposition manager from the previous season.

2019’s winner was then-Plymouth manager Derek Adams, who carried

off a £5 book token. Sadly, despite inviting him to get in touch, Derek

has declined to let us know which title he spent his winnings on.

But who takes the nagging rights this time? Well, we’re going to break

with tradition and award the 2020 prize, not an opposition manager,

but Chairman. Step forward Peterborough Utd’s Darragh MacAnthony,

who takes the title with a fine display of pram de-toying in the wake of

our excellent promotion at the end of the 2019/2020 season.

Take it away Darragh!

“If clubs can’t afford that sort of money [to finish the season behind closed doors] I’m not

sure what they’re doing in competitive football.”

“I’m a football person who wants the clubs to play football again. The ones who would

rather hibernate than play are the problems.”

“We will take action against clubs and the EFL if they deny us the chance to have a go at

promotion.”

“Football will be back and [the] season will get finished or owners who refuse to fulfill

fixtures will be getting their asses sued.”

“I am devastated. I would have bet my life on us finishing in the top two and going up… We

were the team no-one wanted to face in the play-offs and maybe that’s why some voted the

way they did. We have suffered an injustice…”

“…If they don’t want to play the fixtures they can forfeit them all 3-0.”

“I’m not buying this nonsense at all. Clubs who say they are within weeks of going bust

because of the pandemic are talking bull. All this shows is how poorly they were running

their clubs before the Coronavirus arrived. These people shouldn’t be running clubs anyway.”

“We have the largest chip you’ve ever seen on our shoulder… For me it’s about vengeance.”

“We have to right this injustice. We have to right this wrong.”

“The EFL/Sky Bet League One shit show draws to a close. Enjoy your summer football fans.”
