Now the door is locked on Premier League season 2012-13, it's time to grade all 20 managers on their performance.
The criteria is simple. Any manager who finished the season will be judged on their display (apart from Brian Kidd at Manchester City). This means Nigel Adkins' Reading tenure will be analysed rather than his previous time at Southampton.
Grades will scored out of 10. Six should be considered the average mark, with scores fluctuating from this point depending on the manager's actions. Ten indicates a faultless season, while four and below suggests major problems.
