    As expected, Hopkin nominated for the Manager of the month award. Would be fully deserved in my opinion for all the hard work he and his team have put in. Slightly surprised Jack Payne wasn't nominated for player of the month, but happy for him to stay under the radar.

    Fully deserves the nomination. Great turnaround in form during the month of December. Good luck to David and here's to another successful month!

    He more than deserves it. Let’s not give in to superstition and applaud all our managers good work. Well done David.

    Nominate McElhone for trainer of the month as well; what a difference he has made.

    Classic correlation leading to superstition. A team that has had a rich spell of form is likely to have a dip at some point, especially if it is at the unusual level that attracts this attention

    Hopkin last seen binning off training and donning pipe and slippers declaring 'Job done' after his nomination for MOTM.

    David told the press: 'if I win it, I shan't do any more work for at least six weeks', adding 'it's clear the time for complacency is now.'

    A joke slightly loses it impact when you have to explain it.

    MOTM went to Nathan Jones, for his Luton team in December.

    Great. He can be presented with it on the pitch at the Britannia Stadium.
