Norwich City manager Neil Adams has missed out on winning the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award.

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Kenny Jackett has won the August award ahead of Adams, Stuart Pearce of Nottingham Forest and Ian Holloway of Millwall.

The Canaries chief had been nominated after his side picked up 10 points from their first five games since being relegated from the Premier League, including a 1-0 win in the East Anglian Derby at Ipswich.

Wolves won four of their opening five, including beating the relegated trio of Norwich, Fulham and Cardiff, conceding just two goals in the process.

Dave Bassett, who chairs the Sky Bet Manager of the Month judging panel, said: “Wolves have enjoyed an excellent start to life back in the Sky Bet Championship after their promotion last season.

“Nottingham Forest also had an excellent start under Stuart Pearce but I have chosen Kenny as I think Wolves just shaded it when you consider the quality of opposition they defeated in August.”

Sky Sports’ Football League pundit Don Goodman added: “Jackett’s side have made the step up from League 1 to the Championship seamlessly, and taking the big scalps of all the relegated sides in the first month.”

Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson won the League One award for August and Morecambe manager Jim Bentley claimed the League Two award.

Charlton Athletic striker Igor Vetokele has won the Sky Bet Championship Player of the Month for August, after scoring five goals in five games.

The Angolan striker beat off competition from Michail Antonio of Nottingham Forest, Tom Cairney of Blackburn Rovers and Alan Dunne of Millwall.

  • ... Perhaps Mr. Keatley might be interested in creating "The Fat Cat & Fiddle"?

  • OK, Fagen. I will alert Lee O`Ding and Barking, in case they`ve not seen the correspondence. Btw; I went into Gotham yesterday & had a superb pint of Green Jack`s "Rising Sun" in Die Katze. In the spirit of exploration, I then went in search of that "Midnite Café", but could only find the "Moonlight Café" - almost opposite Mama`s Petite Pantry & the Harley-Davidson trolley park. I did see the "Street Café", and it did look a tad smarter than the "Moonlight". A bit too posh for my dear old thing, Blowers, though. Good pint of Nelson`s Revenge in the Koenigskopf, too. Unfortunately, I finished off with a couple of pints of Adman`s Ghastly S#!t back here in Billybobsville, with the usual astringent outcome (or go). Btw:- There`s a pawnshop opposite the Street Café. "Long`s Pledge Centre. - Browers Welcome". They must userer proofreader the likes of Archie`s as a signwriter. Nice "copperplate" script, though. Fascinating place, Magdalen Street. Just need the Cat & Fiddle to be resurrected, for that final touch of class. It could displace Prisoner of War Road as Naaaridge`s premieré destination venue. So much more character.

  • Fagen; I`ve continued the venue thing on another board, The Tettey one, I think. I must compare those 2 cafés next time I`m in Gotham City.

  • I notice aficionados of the Finnish olut around at present and this is good. About 30\40 years ago whilst a mere sapling and living in Sarfend, the lads would drive up and spent a weekend of quaffing in the best hostelries of the fine city. Yesterday evening after a trundle down from Swaffham in my combine, I was revisiting well spent youth and trying find an establishment on Colegate and not The Golden Star. I thought 'grapes' was in the name, but could be mistaken. Any help? Queen Anne was suggested, but this does not ring any bells, either that or dementia has arrived.

  • Die wonder perd - think Frankie Lane or Topo Gigio. Haven't been to Pargeters since our last gathering. Some good pubs north of the city but maybe too far afield. Die katze it is then. About 100 yards above the appalling Midnite Cafe is the mirror opposite. An excellent cafe called the Street cafe. One of Norwich's hidden gems.

  • Btw, Fagen: I`ve gone right off the Pargeteresses` Pantihose. At least you get decent beer in the Crass House! Pretty Polly seems to have gone in for weird, poorly brewed stuff from trendy cronies, I fear. In recent visits, I have seen nothing I actually wanted to sample.

  • Fagen; do you mean Wonder Pferd?? Even then, I still don`t know where you mean! Die D!ck Katze Brauerei Zapfen doesn`t get too busy lunchtimes. Usually the same "locals" type people in there. Mostly middle-aged to oldish at that time of the day. Perhaps you could elucidate on the `Wonder Horse` idea. I cannot find "Wonder" in my Little German Dictionary! Yes, it was the Royal Oak, Castor, I think. It was an Allied Domecq lease. A bit "Mrs. Buckett" IMHO. Catered for the "no riff-raff" types, but some of them were just braying riff-raff in cravats. Landlord was an awful snob. The lovely Caprios in their friendly, clean little local were far nicer. Then it was 15 yrs ago. On the new members front; I`m not keen on crowds, and we must be wary of letting the Devil into our backyard...

  • I've been in the Royal Oak a few times. Nice pub with thatched roof. Closed Monday lunch if I remember correctly. Smart village. No Billybob's alllowed. Week after next is fine for me Brew. Not sure about the venue. We are hoping for several newcomers and they may not be apparent if we go to die Katze. Pargeters or die Wonder Perd might be better alternatives. What do you think.

  • The lack of real footy action made me summon up sufficient energy to get a ticket for Cardiff today. Looking forward to renewing acquaintance with The Goat Major and The Mochyn Du. Feel that Wes may be sacrificed. Wouldn't be surprised to see a fairly flat midfield with only Redmond wide and Laff moved upfront alongside LG...

  • LincsCan, it`s so good to hear they are still there. Oundle Rd? Signor Caprio was sometimes there for my visit. I always got coffee & biscuits. They didn`t need to `bribe` me; they ran a superb pub. It was an Allied Domecq tenancy\lease in those days. I didn`t realise his name was Gess. I knew Ann was... Ann. She was my official contact. I think she may have been the licensee. The Castor pubs don`t ring a bell. Royal Oak?? It was about 15 yrs ago! Fagen, there is a consensus for D!ck Katze Brauerei Zapfen. Week after next, maybe? After the return to footy action, so there`s something there to celebrate or `moan` about! I think I might have to somehow raise sufficient energy to go to Peterborough.

  • I will try to describe the Midnite, Brew but I might well be ethered. Owned by what appear to be two dodgy characters from somewhere east of Zagreb. Food tastes tasty ,in fact, too tasty. Usually wake up next day doubled up in pain that only a dash to the toilet can relieve. Back in the 60's every Saturday morning my grandma would take me to a jumble sale. En route we would call into a backstreet cafe which I recall when I enter the Midnite.

  • Fagen, the Cholesterol Cabin I referred to is a wheeled kiosk. `Mama`s Petite Pantry`. I saw it being towed away at about 1725 yesterday, as I awaited my chariot back to Billybobsville. So I don`t think it can be the Midnite Café. Unless it was the H&S executive removing it? Tell me more about the MC... I had a pint in your favourite pub, the Crasshouse. Beer was AOK. The clientele...

  • Is that Ann Caprio, LincsCan?? That pub was immaculate. The cellar glistered, and was more akin to a well-tended sitting room than a beer store. Signor Caprio was still employed as a drayman by Carsberg Tetley, while Ann (?) ran the pub during the day. They were delightful people. I had other pubs to visit in the area, one at Castor, I think. The Cherry Tree was the the most enjoyable one to visit anywhere on my patch. I`d forgotten how close to Lincs P`bro is. Such memories. ;-)

  • Good well-taken piccy there of Mr Jackett demonstrating goalkeeping technique to his team in-game . Enjoy the fizzy Jacko . If he downs the lot in one sitting I expect he'll end up on the cusp too . In which case his mobility scooter will be leaving one of those "rooster-tail" liquid jets high in the air behind him , like the boy-racers bouncing pointlessly up and down Sea-Palling beach on those jet-skis , annoying herring .

  • Spotted your passing mention of Fergie jnr MB. Posh have a youthful squad and used a fraction of the Assombalonga money to buy Luke James from Hartlepool. Also getting a kick back from George Boyd sale. Little Barry loves his wheeling dealing. It means the fan boards are full of optimism except for one guy who posts as "This is a Rubbish Website". He's good. The Cherry Tree still thrives under the guidance of Ann and Gess. Up the Posh. OTBC.

  • I think you are referring to that Midnite Cafe place, Brew. One of my drinking mates always insists on food at the Midnite followed by beer in the Crass House. You might say he's a bit on the tight side. It's a wonder I'm still alive to recount this.

  • I saw loadsa trollies last time I was in Spalding, Fagen... Norwich, yesterday, was surreal. Some of the trollies have now been customized to ape Harley Davidsons. Plenty of chrome and studded leather panniers. And the "bikers" on board wearing `Evans` Outsize` studded leathers. Obligatory GV rolling much in evidence. Quite a collection around that malodorous grot shop under Anglia Square flyover\night shelter\toilet.

  • Trevor Keith... exactly my thoughts yesterday when I saw NA up for the award. Kiss of death! Actually thought Pearce would win it but as we all agree it is the one at the end of May which counts. No footy this weekend... what will we do?

  • Perhaps our biggest problem will be hanging on to Neil. When the PL merry go round starts then the big clubs will be 'sniffing' around. Here's one for Brew - I see that someone has invented a mobility that does 108 mph. Could turn St Stephens into a mini grand prix. No such problem in Holland - hardly saw one. Then again they all ride bikes and are in general a fit and healthy population. No obesity or diabetes problem over there.

  • I am happy that Neil is not saddled with this award as it so often seems to be a curse with teams then going on a bad run. Neil has proved a lot of his doubters wrong thus far and long may it continue. Such a shame that this international break has happened so early in the season yet again.

  • I think KJ deserves this bit of recognition. He toiled at Millwall for a long time, and I believe he decided to leave as he felt he could do no more. In turn, Ollie`s freshened up Millwall, so it`s Win-Win. MickMack moved from Wolves to 1p5wich... Time to gently wind up my old Millwall supporting, anti-Jackett buddy! Ideally, Adams will get Manager of the Year! See Fergiebabe got the L1 kudos.
