Manager of the month

Recommended Posts

The September nominations, 
Paul Cook (Wigan Athletic)
Daniel Farke (Norwich City)
Darren Moore (West Bromwich Albion)
Chris Wilder (Sheffield United)
The only problem is that the judging panel comprises former Ipswich Town manager George Burley !

He''ll be too concerned with plotting his way into the hot seat at Portman Road to be worried about Farke''s connections.

A judging pane. Surely it only takes one decent ex-player to look at the stats and come up with a winner? It''s not ''Britain''s Got Talent'' after all.

What''s the prize? If it''s a bottle of Scotch GB might well have drunk it well before the winner is decided.

The league table says we have the best record with no defeats. WBA have had two draws and Sheffield United a defeat as have Wigan.

How can it be anyone else than DF. Although semantically he is a coach not manager.

The EFL website says W Brom had an identical record to us in September. 13 from a possible 15

They’re also bothering the top spot, and scored rather more times than us- so I’d imagine their man Moore gets it this time?

if it is really a panel judges’ decision and not a ‘mathematical ‘ one, you’d expect context and style to be taken into account as well. Not sure which way that works for DFarke.

The last time he was nominated it was followed by a pretty wretched run to the end of the season! Let''s hope it doesn''t this time and we continue to climb upwards. I thought in patches last night we played so really good football, unlucky not to win it in the end!

[quote user="BroadstairsR"]I''d go for Paul Hurst.

Doing a splendid job.[/quote]
To think that a few minutes before their first game that would be their highest position in the table so far

Good! Kiss of death.

Meaningless twaddle that only assess the superficial in any case and otherwise is probably a good day out with perks and no little booze for the judges.

Jobs for the boys in a way, part of the parochial pro-ex-footballers ''bubble'' and irrelevant to a man of Europe such as Daniel Farke.

Thought it was clear it would go there - without needing conspiracy theories - as W Brom had slightly outperformed us

Agree it doesn’t really mean much though

Actually they didn''t as they lost in the EFL Cup where we won

The quality of opposition should count as well, we had a more difficult set of fixtures than they did.... Mind you, it''s all a bit meaningless in the grand scheme, would like darker to get the recognition he deserves but means not a jot to the outcome of the season

It is Championship manager of the month- League Cup isn''t considered.

I''d imagine Moore got it also as they''ve won a couple of their games in September comfortably (were 4-1 up against Bristol City for example) while all of ours were by the odd goal.
