All the nominations and votes are in and have been counted and verified by a rather bemused Mrs Baz, but she's proved useful for something this Bank Holiday Monday, so in less in depth fashion as our saviour Mark, here are the results of the vote.
Most Blatant Poster Booster
Previous Winners: Info0, Fodster (2), M0ri, Champman0102, Beezer, Samsami
So the first award is one that some strive for, others don't realise they're doing, and for some just post because they enjoy it. Fods has won this award more times that he's probably pleased about, and we had 6 nominations for the award this time. Previous winner Samsami was again nominated, so was two time winner Fods. Also nominated are London35, Wayupna, Info0, & 316'sRegen.
The winner of the award is Fods who extends his lead of the most blatant post booster in the history of the forums. Nice one Fods
Most Improved Poster
Previous Winners: BobMem, Fabbs, Jesus, Dermotron, Lee, Brian, Fodster (2)
The second award of the evening if for the most improved poster over the past 12 months. Fods again is leading in terms of awards given and again is nominated for this award. Also nominated is AMC, The Eejit/Kingsley, Saturn, & Ste.
The winner of the award, and humorously picking up most improved poster alongside most blatant post booster is Fods, beers are on you tonight Fods!
Previous Winners: Screenshots, "Are you fuc@ing kidding me?", FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU, BABES BABES BABES (x2), Albert Van Bevan and the great Nigerian scam, Patch 2.21 Beta
Onto the next award, which is the best thread award. Just the 5 nominations for this award, and they are as follows: Auction Fantasy Football Premier League Discussion 2016/17, The Alphabet Game, English Research Thread, Saturns Patch & Screenshots. It tickles me that one thread is not viewable to the general public but hey all is good.
The winner of the award, by a close margin is Auction Fantasy Football Premier League Discussion 2016/17, which you can find at the following link: http://champman0102.co.uk/showthread.php?t=8539
Best Thread Starter
Previous Winners: Mark (3), Bevchenko (4)
Onto an award that's only ever been won by Mark and Bevvy. Shockingly there are 5 nominations, and there's not one for Bevvy, need to up your game son. Mark has again been nominated as have Redders, Marc1986, Desp & Samsami.
The winner of the award is obviously Mark so he now ties Bevs record of winning the award 4 times. We need to break this cycle in 2017 peeps.
Previous Winners: JohnLocke (3), Tapani, Alan (2), Saturn
Onto the award everyone wants to win haha. We have 6 nominations for this one, and I can reveal the nominations are: Craig Forrest, Ebfatz, CMCZ, Saturn, Jesus & Redders. I really should do some long winded smeg here, but my food is ready so onwards and upwards.
The winner of the award for the 2nd year running is Saturn.
Previous Winners: Nikolayov, wato20, Topofthekop, Royce Gracie, Ruben, faz44, Papalzru
As Mark stated last year, this is a tough one to track as new members are hard to come by given how long we've been going. The nominations for this award are as follows, can you guess how many actually signed up in 2016? MarkDuff83, Wayupna, Mcnamee19, Felix, PilgrimPete, Nurishi.
The winner of the award, despite joining in, well i'll let him tell you is PilgrimPete.
Previous Winners: ozRooster (x2), Haniel, GoofyZ, Lee, Alan, Fodster, Trunky
Some people try to hard to be funny, but for others it comes naturally, unless you're Fods and Trunky who fall somewhere in between. Both of these are of course nominated for this award and so is The Eejit/Kingsley.
The winner of the award by the skin of his tight wallet is my LBU member Trunky.
Member of the Year
Previous Winners: Mark, Fodster (x2), Craig Forrest, Beezer,Celtic1967, Dermotron. Saturn
Another big award, and it's member of the year. You can see by the list of the previous winners that you'd join some high quality company by winning this award, and the following people have received nominations. Mark, Redders, Saturn and the drunkard in the corner, Fods.
I can reveal, there is a first time winner of this award, and it's everyones favourite Ebaying Jack Scouser, Redders!

Moment of The Year
Previous Winners: Return of Mark as the owner, WelshRed taking over the website, the split of the CM 01/02 Update Team, the Michael Jackson debate, the Return of Tapani, Applying for Jobs Abroad Crack.
I would normally go through the other couple of nominations for this award, however out of respect and pure amazement to everyone that has taken part, the moment of the year for 2016 is the Tribute To Chapecoense month. Truly deserving moment of the year that.

His Last Bow - Samsami
Nottingham Forest – Creation of an Identity, Lifes A Lottery (The Eejit/Kingsley)
Championship Manager Challenge – Siberia (Jomus)
The winner is, master of Harry Bow himself, Samsami.
Hall of Fame
Previous Inductees: Dermotron, Tapani, Beezer,Celtic1967, JohnLocke
The final award of the evening, and one the gives thanks to those that have done wonderful things in the time of our community. We've had a few weeks of discussion up in the powers that be HQ and after some discussion we've finally come to an agreement and this years inductee into the ChampMan0102.co.uk Hall of Fame is the artist formerly known as The Eejit, now known as Kingsley.
Under his two guises, Kingsley has been an active member of the community for many years and has contributed greatly to our close community, especially in the Stories section of the forum, which as you can see from above has even won an award for his stories. So congratulations to Kingsley for making the HOF, and I requested a speech from you in due course haha.
That's it for the awards. I'll sort all your awards for winning awards in due course, so here's to 2017, and get working towards next years awards, and let's try to break some of the monopolies on this awards!
Wow. Congrats to the winners. I was sure I was not nominated in any category this year as I don't even post that much .
Great write up Baz, and congrats to all winners and nominees, especially Kingsley for a deserved Hall of Fame win, I look forward to his speech
Well done to all ...
Pleased to get a few nominations in there also, thank you to those that have mentioned me, looking to help out with more content this year and hopeful next year get my name in bold print !
Nice one Baz - superb write up,
Nice one lads
Well Done all the winners!
Suprised to be nommed in Most Intelligent. Never had a chance in that category.
Just one point.....Samsami isn't the master of Harry Bow by the way.
Smashing write up Baz
A big to everyone that voted and congrats to everyone that was nomimnated and those that received the awards
Shocked and honoured to be voted member of the year and have some mentions in the other categories
Very suprised to have taken "Best Thread" home - maybe it was voted because it was something new as has nowehre near the level of updates as other threads (e.g DTL) and you live or die on the players you pick at start of season - but on that we have the transfer window this month (so get prepped for it!)
Big 'up to The Eej as well getting into the HOF
Baz - did you mean Info instead of "ebay" here?!
Fods Rant to Ebay
Great write up, fun to read! Winners seem well deserved as well, even though I don't get how I could be nominated as best newbie when I joined in 2013. Thanks to whoever nominated me though!
Cheers guys..... well done to all noms and thanks for my Best Foreigner win..... although to be fair it's really you lot that are the foreigners...
I know it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of life
However, i have to say it. I tried not to but i have to.
BLATANT POST BOOSTER? That's where my name appears? Two threads i've started this year have over ten thousand views, the larger one has 15,000.views. My threads were top ranked all year. The guy with the Euro2016 predictions thread was probably my fave but I didn't even see this thread to nominate anyone.
Just to be clear i'm not bothered who wins what, i don't want to win anything it's not sour grapes.
I just don't blatantly boost my post count you idiots, so don't ever nominate me in that category again.
I already know who i'll nominate for most blatant post booster next year.
You really got me there!
Great write up Baz! Congrats to the winners, and thanks to all those who voted.
I'd like to thank my agent for making this all possible.
I am concerned that this might be the final awards. With the majority of clubs managed being outside of USA and most of the posters being non-american citizens, I feer that President Trump might seek to ban the site
The artist formally known as The Eejit
I certainly hope it won't be the last! #KeepTheGameAlive! #ScrewTrump!
The Alphabet Game
Try your luck at winning the top flight title with all 26 letters in the Alphabet!

Unfortunately, trunky can't be here to accept his award for funniest poster 2016, but he did send this message which I will now read out to you all.
"Erm...oh THAT website. Yeah, I remember it, what of it?"
"They did what? Funniest? Again? For the second year in a row? Are they mad?"
"Well, I'm not going, tell the fuckers that I'm doing my hair."
"Of course they don't know I'm bald. Why would they?"
"You did what! I've told you before, never post pictures of me on forums."
"Oh, they want a speech do they? Too tight for a proper awards ceremony?"
"What? No the bloke that runs the place, Mike or something, keeps having 3 week holidays."
"Eh? Who knows where the money goes, I asked for a complete audit but it was just brushed under the carpet."
"They want a speech?"
"Erm...how about many thanks to all those at (insert the name of the website here) for keeping FIFA, FM, CM whatever (delete as applicable) alive and providing a place where like minded, idiots, buffoons and virgins (leave all of these in) can meet up and share there exciting, boring and mundane (also leave in) stories."
"No, I'm not doing any more. Redders is popping round with the lube in 10 minutes."
Going for an early nomination for next years award
