Howe has overseen an incredible change in fortunes since making his return to Dean Court in the middle of October with nine wins and three draws in all competitions since then.

His side won three from five in November, adding in an FA Cup victory over Dagenham & Redbridge, and they have moved away from the bottom end of the table to lie ninth, just four points outside the play-off places.

Howe beat off competition from MK Dons manager Karl Robinson and Brentford's Uwe Rosler to win the award, and he said: "This is all down to the team.

"Ever since we have come back in the players have been excellent as has the staff around me, and the supporters have also more than played their part in that run we've been on.

"(Christmas) is a very vital time for us - we've got a lot of games as have the other teams, but we're still in catch-up mode at the moment so we've still got a lot of work to do to get up to the top two and the top six, so these games will be pivotal against our rivals at the top end of the table."

Player of the month honours went to Orient's veteran striker Kevin Lisbie, who scored five goals in five League One games with doubles against Shrewsbury and Portsmouth.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
