We have a good manager, y'all.

Have you ever had one of those days where you'd like to sit around and write about Tottenham Hotspur in the spare moments that you have in between projects or when taking a short break from your day-job work, but you end up so incredibly busy that not only can you not manage to take a mental health break you barely even have time to check the footy news all day to see if anything interesting happened? That ever happened to you?

Well, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino didn't have a day like that. In fact, he had a pretty darned good day, considering he's coming off of two difficult and disappointing results against Dortmund and Arsenal. The club announced today that Pochettino was named Barclay's Premier League Manager of the Month for February.

It's a truly well-deserved honor for Pochettino after he lead Tottenham to four victories in four matches in the month of February: at Norwich, home to Watford, at Manchester City, and home to Swansea. This is the second time this season that Poche has won the award; he took home honors in September as well, making him the first Premier League manager to win to win more than one Manager of the Month award this season.

Also, from watching that video I learned that the ball on top of the Manager of the Month trophy isn't even a full ball, but half a ball. Oh sure it LOOKS like a full ball when you view those photographs of smiling managers holding their trophy, but it's not. Great job, Premier League, you can't even manage to get a full sphere on top of your trophies. (Though I guess that would make it easier to display on your mantlepiece...)
