The City boss has led his side to three wins and a draw since the opening day defeat at Wolves. He is up against Kenny Jackett, whose newly promoted Wolves have already beaten the three relegated Premier League sides.

Stuart Pearce, manager of leaders Nottingham Forest who have dropped just two points this season, and Millwall’s Ian Holloway complete the shortlist.

Forest’s Michail Antonio, Blackburn midfielder Tom Cairney, Millwall defender Alan Dunne and Charlton striker Igor Vetokele complete the player of the month candidates.

The winners of the awards will be announced tomorrow.

  • Only old people drink tea, waclor ;-) Great day out with dear old Henry Blofeld yesterday. I got a taxi to his Club, the Midnite Café in Magdalen St., then we went on from there to a new venue for him, `The Whiffler` on the Northern Naaridge Ring Road. I feared that Blowers might find it a tad too effete for his tastes, but he soon settled in. Once he`d got outside a pint of John Smith`s Olde Englishe Smoothe and an all-day Burger-based Cholesterfest, he was in his element. Within minutes, he`d made friends with this enormous Biker-type, and traded his rather common silver-capped antique walking cane for a top-of-the-range, ersatz Harley Davidson motability trolley. We then settled in for a few more JS Smooths (what sublime, subtle stuff. Nectar). Another Cholesterburger for tiffin, then back to Henry`s place via his local, the Heartsease. No taxi needed - there was room on his `Harley` for Two. How very Holf Rarris, don`t you know, my dear old thing. And SUCH fun.

  • If independent thought involves assuming that when somebody mentions a place name they are automatically being disrespectful to the survivors and victims of an atrocity that happened there, then perhaps independent thought is not all it is cracked up to be. SO, it may cross your mind that Brew was referring to that but how do you have the arrogance to decide that he must have been. I took it as a pun between Oman and Omagh mainly because I doubt if any poster on here would be so crass to make fun of a human tragedy. You have to learn to consider that sometimes you may be wrong. Like you were last year for example. This year we are all agreed, in football parlance: "The Boy Adams done great so far". Now how about an argument about whether to add milk to tea or tea to milk?

  • Well, Igno; perhaps in the fullness of time, both of us will be sufficiently blessed to meet ourselves. In the meantime, I am relieved that there is but one SO. One two many for both of them too (sic), but hey, that`s life. That said, the image of a foppish dandy typing away in the 18th Century is intriguing, as the typewriter was not invented until the mid 19th Century. Facts must not be permitted to intrude upon a good rant, don`t you know, my dear old thing. Anyway, may not dally, I have a rendezvous with that jolly old chap, Blowers, for a mardle over a spot of tiffin and a pink gin. On the agenda is cricket and cakes, don`t you know - but we haven`t decided whether to meet at the Troll Cart in Yarmouth or the Hungry Horse in Thetford. Each is a tad too posh for Henry, but I`ll introduce him to the members. I`m sure they`ll make allowances for my gauche, but thoroughly decent, protegé. Hussar!

Presumably, like Dr. Who I am a latter day version since I get the C18th dandy jibe, whereas he was unsure as to from which of the C15th or C16th you had escaped. However, progress is being made as he is now resorting to cheap personal attacks. My apologies to any other posters who find my vocabulary or writing style as offensive as does SO and please be assured that despite the opinion of the "perfect one" I am not now, nor have ever been,The Mad Brewer.

  • Apart from it being embarrassing obvious Igno is another of Brewers accounts do you truly believe typing like a 18th century foppish dandy makes you sound urbane and sophisticated? Educated? Because it just makes you look ridiculous. People don't speak that way in the 21st century.

  • Having set the box to record all three televised premier league rugby matches over the weekend I find a moment or two to add my penny worth to the spat between Mr. Brewer and (the not so steady) Steady On.it is a line from a play, which, if I remember correctly, runs something like this: "i do the wrong, and first begin to brawl. The secret mischiefs that I set abroach I lay unto the grievous charge of others." Answers on a postcard.........

I think it will make you think next time you post, so mission accomplished. Maybe a few of the pets you've collected are having second thoughts? The way you were able to mobilise a gaggle of monkeys that do your every bidding was very interesting to watch.

  • Cutty I was just suggesting that SO remembered last season when he or she spent his or her time heaping abuse on the small but increasing band of fans who had come to the conclusion that Hughton was useless. Being SO he or she did so in the most vitriolic terms then disappeared from the board when the penny finally sank that he or she was WRONG. I had hoped that this would have taught him or her the value of humility and respect for the views of others but it doesn't seem to have done. Pity really because he makes some very good points when his or her brain is in the right gear.

  • Idée fixe time again... I should think Pearce is favourite for manager of the month, but I feel both Jackett and Ollie have a stronger case. Wolves are beginning to "do a Norwich" (in the Lambo sense of the expression), and Ollie has somehow revived Millwall with minimal resources. Surprised "Goal-a-Game Grabbs" is not on the player list. Our time will come. You were not slow in the Sloughbottom days, cutty.

  • OK SO we were worried after one game. Neil played NR out of position, the team looked unfit and the defence very vulnerable. All these issues have been addressed, thank heavens. It may be early season but Neil and co had a very good transfer window, better than I have seen before from city. It's looking good. However before you assume the mantle of smug greatness, tell us where you went wrong as Chrissie's great mate. What happened there my friend?

  • Cutty that's very perceptive re: the Brethren. I was brought up by foster parents who were Brethren. I left @ 17 + never went back. Come to think of it City games under Hughton were a lot like Brethren meetings. Long periods of silence with the occasional dull song + desperate prayers. Neil is bringing the all-singing + dancing Pentecostal feel back to the church of Carra. The saints ( should that be canaries.?) be praised...

Squad uncertainties 5. The pre season tour mishaps 6. Weak PR whilst bringing in a belated new Manager 7. One shot on target against Wolves (The wounds had not healed from last season)

Wonder if they are still accusing David McNally of financially embezzling the football club or whether they have abandoned that idea. I've seen enough of Adams to know he wants to play football the right way and that he knows how influence a game. Now the test of managing a squad comes into effect, which is a new challenge, I wish him well.
