Well deserved accolade. Superb display against Fulham and many match winning performances through January.
I'm hoping some of your team mates can pick up awards during the rest of the season as they've worked hard too.
Pellegrini was a bit of a surprise. The Chelsea aberration wasn't actually in January, so it's a fair decision. Throughout January, city were devastating, no doubt at all. Mind, Sunderland were pretty devastating too...
The best accolades for Sunderland will be credible survival in the Premiership and a credible performance at Wembley.
Both are attainable.
