    At least to date...

    Steve Bruce? I thought Wigan would be a relegation candidate, so to see them in 7th at this stage is pretty impressive.

    Any other managers that might warrant consideration?

    a couple of losses and they're back in a relegation battle.

    there's only one candidate for this.

    martin o'neil.

    anyone that argues that with a name other than anyone but ferguson doesn't know a thing about thew PL this year.

    hull have dropped away but still credit has to be given to phil brown, another mention should be given to david moyes - not a lot of money floating about at everton but they still remain the 6th best team in england. i would put zola ahead of bruce, first season in charge and has them playing really well at the moment.

    but no one has done with than o'neil with the players that he has.

    top 3 for me this year.

    1. martin o'neil
    2. alex fergusion
    3. zola

    Good response, Trev. O'Neill deserves full credit. I didn't name any of the top four managers (meaning SAF, Rafa, Wenger, or Scolari) because they aren't exceeding expectations. I mean, is anyone stunned that Man U is top of the table?

    But, again, good point on O'Neill.

    but if we're talking about the PL manager of year you have to consider the coaches of the 'big 4' clubs. i didn't include either of the other 3 because with the players they have and what is expected of them they haven't delivered this year so far.

    man utd have came through an injury crises and fixture cluster f'k to be top of the league, final of the micky mouse cup and still in europe and the fa cup. not to mention winner of the fifa world club cup. no one doubts that alex is the best manager the PL has ever seen, not even the most bitter liverpool fan would deny him that. but this year even with utd playing so well the way o'neill has villa playing is unbelievable, the man is a genius and the next man utd manager for sure. plus he's irish 😉

    totally agree with martin o'neil as 1st choice the man has been superb for villa giving them organisation and consistency, 2nd i would go for david moyes of everton givng them pretty much the same as above, 3rd, zola(at the minute) has a settled squad and has got them playing good football although i think steve clarke has had a massive influence there organising the defence,they seem to be heading in the right direction.

    Last: Mark Hughes - great resources, squad that performed well last year+Robinho. Admirable of Man City to keep him around after some largely mediocre performances dotted by a few decent ones.
