I've only read the headline so maybe I'm taking this totally out of context but how can you say someone is manager of the season so far after 3 games. 

"So far." You could say someone is 'manager of the season so far' 5 minutes after K.O. It doesn't mean much, but it's not wrong.

Its these early judgements that really annoy me, not just with managers but players too. It makes no sense how you can judge it based on 3 games, 3 very good games but still... at least bring the article out after 10 games, that would be better. 

 

I will agree with you by saying that, yes, its technically not wrong.

True. but in context he should get the first PL manager of the month award. Aside from Ancelloti there cannot be any other serious contenders surely. 9 points out of 9, 12 goals scored, top of the league, inflicted MC worst ever home defeat in a tactical masterclass. All of this with several key players, who most would expect to be starters missing

I agree - it's far too early for judgements like these. I suppose journalists have to earn a living somehow.

I think I'm probably contradicting myself after my last comment, but I agree with this, as well. Couldn't have asked for a better start to the season, even if we had a full bill of health.

 

I think the question is whether "manager of the season so far" is making it sound grander than it actually is.

yeah. that "manager of the season so far" bit is definitely maybe just a tad over the top. But then again journos need a headline and it gives the story a bit of a shock horror feel and sounds better than "first manager of the month award for the new season goes to......"

I was just casually reading  some pre match reviews for our game against West Ham and once again we were labelled as a counter attacking team. Its not the first time we've seen this. Some lazy pundits/journalists trot out that line now and again. Though I'm not quite sure where that label comes from. We haven't played that style of football in like 3 years. Nowadays we completely dominate possession and our full backs spend most of their time near the opposition penalty box.

I know penalties are still goals but Vardy has scored 1 goal from open play this season, do people really think he's one of the best strikers so far 3 games in once they've taken their blinkers off?

I assume it's because they only watch us when we play the likes of Man City and Liverpool, and sit deeper. Very annoying, though.

yes, penalties or not, you still have to stick them in, and his goal from open play was sublime.
