CaughtOffside Awards 2010/11: Winners Announced

So after over 100,000 votes we have some announcements to make!

So COS readers have been voting with aplomb over the past month and it appears the inaugural COS Awards have been a big success so it only remains for us to announce those who won and commiserate with those who lost. Remember each award category has a winner decided by you, i.e. the winner being the recipient of the most votes. COS then awards an Editorial award for the player/manager/idiot/website we have selected as a worthy winner.

So let’s get on with it.
