Pep Guardiola nominates Rafa Benitez as potential winner of this season’s Premier League manager of the year.
Monday night: Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is only one of four title winners not to lift Manager of the Year award.
John Carver overlooked for Manager of The Year and FA Cup Manager of The Year at bizarre awards ceremony.
There had already been murmurings of Alan Pardew as a potential Premier League Manager of the Year…
Newcastle United finished fifth then quickly fell apart and were almost relegated, whatever happened to that manager of the year?
A surprise choice for many but Alan Pardew has selected our old mate Mrs Doubtfire (AKA Steve Bruce) as his manager of the year so far.
Having a look back over the past season, can you guess how many times Alan Pardew won ‘Manager Of The Month’?
Not surprisingly it was a massive thumbs up with and average of 9.1 out of 10 for the man who has picked up three Manager Of The Year awards for his achievements over the last twelve months.
Rumour has it that the voting was unanimous with the exception of an excitable gentleman who was turned away at the door, wearing spectacles & dodgy tracksuit bottoms and speaking with an Irish accent.
With 19 wins, 8 draws and 10 defeats, Pardew has taken a team who just two years ago were winning promotion from the Championship to fighting for a Champions League place.
