Mancini Is Barclays Manager Of The Month

Mancini Is Barclays Manager Of The Month

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is Barclays Manager of the Month for October after leading the club to four straight wins with his team averaging over four goals a game.

City began the month with a 4-0 away win at Blackburn Rovers, before netting another four goals against Aston Villa at home.

The remarkable 6-1 away win against Manchester United really announced Mancini's men as title contenders, while the club cemented their lead at the top of the Barclays Premier League table with a confident 3-1 win over Wolves.

In total, Manchester City netted an incredible 17 goals during October, in what has been an extraordinarily goal-heavy start to the Barclays Premier League season.

The decision was made by the Barclays Awards Panel, which includes representatives from football's governing bodies, the media and fans.

Forza Mancini! He won it early in his reign too, December 2010, and can hopefully be our manager for many years to come. My favourite manager since Keegan and probably the best manager in club history already behind only Joe Mercer.

Redknapp didn't suffer from winning it last month did he? Spurs' form has been about equal to ours.
