McCarthy Nominated for Manager of the Month
Thursday, 10th Jan 2013 10:11
Town boss Mick McCarthy is amongst the nominees for December's Championship Manager of the Month award, as predicted yesterday. The Blues boss is up against Hull City's Steve Bruce and Cardiff's Malky Mackay for the gong.
McCarthy led the Blues to four wins - three of them away from home - one draw and one defeat during the final month of 2012.
The last time a Town boss was named Manager of the Month was back in 2004 when Joe Royle picked up the award for November.
Since then Royle, Jim Magilton and most recently, for August 2010, Roy Keane have all been nominated but without winning the award.
The winner will be announced on Friday on Sky Sports News from 10am when David McGoldrick will discover whether he has won the League One Player of the Month award for December from his time with Coventry.

Over the last two decades Portman Road has changed from being a buzzing place with exciting football to graveyard shift at a library. What can be done to change this?
How Much Do We Need to Rip Up to Start Again? by Steve_M
That small amount of promise and hopefulness at the start of the year has been well and truly dashed and this looks like it’s going to be one of those frustrating seasons; one where Ipswich is competitive enough against all but the best sides in the division but just not good enough on a consistent basis to ever build the momentum necessary for a sustained promotion challenge.
