Hooray for Phil Brown and Ashley Young, whom I hope will one day wear the red of Manchester United! :)

BTW, Phil Brown looks a bit sinister, like he's sold your parents time shares and is now after your grand parents ......and their neighbours.

Brown wins September award

Hull boss scoops prize after excellent month



Hull boss Phil Brown has been named Premier League manager of the month for September.

The Tigers started the month with a 2-1 victory at Newcastle and then held Everton to a 2-2 draw.

They went on to spring one of the greatest surprises in Premier League history as they came from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium.

Hull, who continued their fine start to the season with a 1-0 victory over Tottenham on Sunday, are currently third in the table.

They had been heavy favourites to be relegated and Brown has now been recognised for his part in their unexpected success.

Brown's accolade was voted for by the Barclays Award Panel, which includes representatives from football's governing bodies, the media and fans.

It is the first such award for Hull in their maiden Premier League campaign.

Villa winger recognised for performances in September



Aston Villa winger Ashley Young has landed the September award for the Premier League player of the month.

Young produced a series of sparkling displays as Villa clinched three successive victories to climb the table.

The 23-year-old helped set up Nigel Reo-Coker's opener against Tottenham at White Hart Lane and then scored the decisive second early in the second half.

Young turned in another excellent performance at West Brom a week later and supplied the cross for John Carew's headed goal.

He then finished the month by curling home a free-kick in the 2-1 victory over Sunderland.

Having won the same award in April, Young joins an elite group of players including Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard to have picked up the prize more than once.

Phil Brown certainly deserves it. Young too probably, though it also could have gone to Zaki.

You're absolutely right about Zaki.

In fact, he probably did a little bit more for his team than Young,

I wonder, if he was a contender and if ye how close the race was between them.


Aston Villa winger Ashley Young has scooped the Barclays Player of the Month Award for September.


Young named Barclays Player of the Month

Young added to his award from April 2008 following a sterling September, in which he scored twice and contributed a further two assists.

After setting up one goal and firing the decisive second in Villa's 2-1 away win at Tottenham Hotspur, he followed this up with another assist in the 2-1 derby victory over West Bromwich Albion.

Young completed the month by hitting the back of the net with a 20-yard free-kick that proved the catalyst for a narrow win over Sunderland at Villa Park.

elite band

Villa's three successive league victories during the month saw Martin O'Neill's men continue their surge up the Barclays Premier League table, ending September well placed in fourth.

Young joins an elite band of players including Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney and Steven Gerrard, who have won the Barclays Player of the Month Award on more than one occasion.

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

fact file


# Young was born on 9th July 1985 in Stevenage, Hertfordshire.

# Martin O'Neill paid £9.65m in January 2007 to prise the left-sided winger from Watford, with whom he was a Championship Play-Off winner in 2006.

# All his three full international caps have ended in England victories.

# Young has two brothers, Lewis and Kyle, still in Watford's Academy system.

# This is Young's second Barclays Player of the Month Award, after he also picked up the award in April 2008.

# Young has scored 12 goals in 56 Aston Villa appearances since leaving Watford, where he totalled 20 goals in 101 matches.

# This year Young has played every minute of Villa's Barclays Premier League campaign, scoring two goals in seven matches.

lol.

True.

Anyway, I think it probably should have gone to Zaki as well. Maybe even Geovanni actually.

But I think Zaki deserved it.

But well done to Young and Phil Brown. If anyone other than Phil Brown won the award it would be a disgrace in all honesty.

Absolutely correct.

To acheive what the likes of Chelsea and ManUtd have failed to achieveby winning at the Emirates was amazing.

I watched the match and Hull played with confidence, whice was very impressive. Boateng and Geovanni look like men on a mission.

Gareth Southgate & Phil Brown are the two on form managers in the Premiership as things stand. Especially considering their budgets and restraints.

Phil Brown fully deserved. He is a class manager and will be grabbed by a bigger club soon, or at least someone will make the attempt!!

I love the way Phil Brown goes about his work, you can see that football is his life.
Hope he does ok this season, i can't see Hull City keeping up this rich vain of form but he has a little safety net placed under Hull already, with not far off half the points needed for saftey after 7 games is great for a club just up from the Championship.
Beating Spurs and the Gunners away from home makes it even better.
Ok the draw against Everton on maybe the win at Spurs were lucky because both these clubs have more to offfer and maybe Hull played them at the right time but beating Wengers silky side in their own backyard is something even Manchester United fans havn't felt yet.

And its a shock horror how Robbie Fowler didn't pick up the player of the month award:p :eek:
