Well, there goes another Premier League season.

And at least this time, there was a title race to speak of which ended narrowly in Manchester City's favour.

Liverpool and their manager Jurgen Klopp appear to be in it for the long haul though building an impressive team.

Manager Contenders

So this week on Team 33, Killian Woods and I joined Joe Coffey to review an intriguing season.

But we also touched on which managers have shone over the past 10 months.

You can listen to the full show just below or here. Or you can subscribe/stream on iTunes for free. For Liverpool fans, you'll find in-depth interviews with Stig Inge Bjornebye and Markus Babbel. Plus, Liverpool throw-in-coach Thomas Gronnemark also spoke to us recently.

Who's been the Premier League manager of the season?

00:00:00 / 00:00:00

For me personally, outside the Top 2, Rafa Benitez managed to eek the utmost out of an ordinary Newcastle United squad.

That's two seasons in a row where he has engineered survival with something to spare.

Nuno Espirito Santo at Wolves also did well as the club finished as the 'Best of the Rest' outside the Top 6.

Killian also highlighted another quietly impressive manager in Javi Gracia. He had the Hornets in the battle for 7th for long periods and also took them to an FA Cup final.

But let us know your thoughts. Tweet us your manager of the season to @teamthirtythree.
