The nominations were:

2006/07 - The year that Martin Allen stopped the rot. MK Dons had suffered relegation to League 2 the previous year but Allen came in and brought a winning mentality to the Dons. Martin guided the Dons to their first-ever Play-Off campaign, albeit an unsuccessful one. The season also saw Izale McLeod become the club's highest-ever goal scorer and was also the year Keith Andrew, arguably the club's greatest captain, became a Don.

2007/08 - Former Manchester United midfielder Paul Ince arrived in Milton Keynes to take charge of the Dons, in the same year they moved into their new home stadiummk. Ince’s arrival in 2007 coincided with the Dons’ most successful season as they went on to win their first piece of silverware - the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy - by beating Grimsby 2-0 at Wembley, before going on to win the League 2 title and clinching promotion. That season the Dons equalled a record 18 victories away from home.

2010/11 - Karl Robinson, aged 29 at the time of his appointment, became the youngest manager in The Football League. Many pundits predicted the Dons would struggle in League 1 with a rookie in charge, but the Dons thrived on the underdogs tag. They clinched a place in the Play-Offs and were drawn against their newest rivals Peterborough United. The Dons thought they had the edge as they won the first leg 3-2, but a highly controversial penalty decision against them turned the momentum back in Peterborough's favour and defeat in the second leg brought the Dons' incredible season to an end.
