The Championship has once again been outstanding this season with several teams and individuals catching the eye.
With the international break upon us it prompted Yorkshire Evening Post reporter Phil Hay to assess the campaign so far and to pick a best XI and a manager so far.
As you would expect, it was dominated by players from Norwich, Sheffield United and Leeds, with Hay watching first-hand the quality on display at Elland Road this season.
Despite including Liam Cooper, Kalvin Phillips and Pablo Hernandez in the XI, many Whites supporters were upset that Hay went with Daniel Farke as the manager over Marcelo Bielsa.
Most would agree that either boss could be up for the manager of the year accolade right now, along with Chris Wilder, as nobody expected the top three to be in the positions they are.
So, with the Canaries leading the way, you can understand Hay’s decision.
However, many Leeds fans feel the transformation Bielsa has had on the club is greater than Farke and here’s how some reacted to Hay’s decision…
Farke over Bielsa Phil. You’ve gone done us bad there chief ???? #lufc

Sorry Phil but turning the fortunes of a stable club like Norwich around are nowhere near the level Bielsa faces at ER. It’s the hardest job in the league … How you’ve chosen Farke is crazy… u also know our injury situation all season. Have You been missing the attention ????
