West Bromwich Albion

Carlos Corberan of West Brom can’t be pleased following McKenna, Farke, and Rosenior’s revelation.



With their excellent start to the season, West Bromwich Albion appears destined for a spot in the play-offs come next month.

Despite West Bromwich Albion’s impressive season under the leadership of Spanish manager Carlos Corberan, he was surprisingly not nominated for the Manager of the Year award in the Championship. This decision may come as a disappointment to Corberan and his supporters, considering the team’s current fifth-place position in the league table and their strong form in recent months, having lost only three of their last 15 Championship games in 2024.

Corberan’s omission from the nominations highlights the subjective nature of such awards and the various criteria considered by the selection committee. While Corberan may feel deserving of recognition for his contributions to West Brom’s success this season, it’s ultimately a decision made by the awarding body.

Nevertheless, Corberan’s focus remains on guiding West Bromwich Albion to secure their playoff spot and potentially achieve promotion to the Premier League, prioritizing the team’s collective success over individual accolades.

The three managers who have been nominated for the Championship Manager of the Year by the EFL are Kieran McKenna, Daniel Farke and Liam Rosenior.

Championship Manager of the Year nominations and Corberan
Manager Team Current place Played Win Draw Loss
Kieran McKenna Ipswich Town 1st 40 26 9 5
Daniel Farke Leeds United 2nd 40 26 8 6
Carlos Corberan West Brom 5th 40 19 11 10
Liam Rosenior Hull City 10th 39 16 10 13

It seems like Kieran McKenna of Ipswich Town is the frontrunner for the Manager of the Year award in the Championship, given Ipswich’s current position at the top of the league and their remarkable push for back-to-back promotions from League One to the Premier League. McKenna’s ability to lead a team primarily composed of players who were competing in the third tier last season to such success is indeed an outstanding achievement.

Daniel Farke, managing Leeds United, is also a strong contender for the award. Despite Leeds’ relegation from the Premier League last season and the departure of key players, Farke’s recruitment and management have seen the team maintain an unbeaten league record in 2024, positioning them near the top of the table.

However, there are some doubts regarding the nomination of Hull City’s manager, Liam Rosenior. Despite significant backing from the club’s owner in the transfer market, Hull City has struggled to meet expectations, currently sitting in 10th place and six points off the play-off positions. Their recent form has been concerning, raising questions about Rosenior’s nomination compared to other managers in the play-off race.

Corberan will be disappointed he was not nominated for the award

Carlos Corberan

It certainly seems that Carlos Corberan has faced numerous challenges throughout the season, including limited financial backing for player recruitment, uncertainty over ownership, and significant injury issues affecting key players. Despite these obstacles, he has managed to lead West Bromwich Albion to a strong position in the Championship, currently sitting in fifth place and in contention for promotion through the play-offs.

Given the circumstances, many may feel that Corberan’s achievements deserve recognition, especially if West Bromwich Albion were to secure promotion. His ability to navigate through adversity and keep the team competitive despite the challenges they have faced speaks volumes about his managerial prowess.

If the team does achieve promotion, the absence of Corberan’s nomination for Manager of the Year would likely be viewed as even more unjust by many observers. Ultimately, his leadership and resilience in the face of adversity should not go unnoticed, regardless of individual awards.
