Not only has Monk found a formation that has taken us higher than we could have imagined, he's also found a formation that has taken us far higher than our individual abilities. Green is a great example. Had an excellent season on the whole, but wouldn't get in many of the top half teams' teams. Sackho, Doukarra, Phillips, wouldn't get in Sheffield United's team.
If we make it to the play offs, which we should now, unless Barnsley make the play offs Monk should be named Championship Manager of the Year for massive over achievement.
Bar one of the centre backs, and possibly Taylor above Whitlow, the current team would have no chance of getting anywhere near Wilko's promotion winning team. So hats off to Monk, and let's hope we can see the job through.
