The shortlist has been revealed for perhaps world football's most prestigious managerial prize; the FIFA World Coach of the Year award.
The accolade is given out to the coach who has been the most diligent and successful in his endeavours over the course of the past year, and it's fair to say it's been a pretty hectic 12 months.
Not only did Real Madrid conquer Europe for the first time in more than a decade, derailing Bayern Munich along the way, but football also saw the World Cup return from it's four year sabbatical with a bang, with Brazil 2014 making and breaking more than one house-hold name.
But the real masters are the managers behind the teams who do well; the brains behind the operations that the masses pay to go and watch and the ones who ultimately shoulder responsibility should things not go to plan.
As one would expect after such a busy year there's been plenty of criteria to fit, but it would appear that FIFA has finally whittled it down to just ten candidates.
Of course there's the usual suspects on the list in the form of individuals you would expect to see there, but there's also one or two surprise packages.
