March Managers of the Month
• Premier League: Jennifer Brubaker, USA
• Ligue 1: Yven Steven, France & Ott Sutt, Estonia
• La Liga: Luis Grana, Argentina
• Serie A: Manuel Alejandro Llorente Duque, Colombia

So, on to the Premier League squad of the month for October. It's a squad of 15, just like you have to select, based on points gained for players which would fit into the £100m budget. Who's in?

GOALKEEPERS: Liverpool goalkeeper Jose Reina makes a rare appearance in the squad after notching 19 points for the month. And there's also an equally rare appearance for Marcus Hahnemann (18) of Reading as the Royals have been very accommodating at the back all season.

DEFENDERS: Another Reading player makes it into the 15, with the goals from Andre Bikey making him the best performing defender in March with 30 points. Manchester United's Wes Brown is just behind on 29.

There's a first appearance for Matt Taylor (23) of Bolton following his goals. The other two places go to players who will not play again this season - Nedum Onouha (18) of Manchester City and finally Wigan's Erik Edman (16).

MIDFIELDERS: There are no prizes for guessing who the top scoring midfielder is. That's because it's the same every month. Yep, Cristiano Ronaldo again proves that you can't win anything without him in your squad, another 49 points points.

Chelsea's Joe Cole (45) is just behind Ronaldo after a great month. The other players are well back in terms of points with the places going to Tom Huddlestone (23) of Spurs, Sebastian Larsson (22) of Birmingham City and also Fulham's Jimmy Bullard (17).

STRIKERS: The fine form of Fernando Torres makes him a shoe-in for the squad after notching 36 points. And just behind is the rejuvenated Jermain Defoe (36) who just cannot scoring. Maybe being ineligible against Spurs cost him top spot.

And the final spot goes to Mikael Forssell of Birmingham City with 24 points.

SQUAD IN FULL
Goalkeepers: Jose Reina (Liverpool), Marcus Hahnemann (Reading)
Defenders: Andre Bikey (Reading), Wes Brown (Man Utd), Matt Taylor (Bolton), Nedum Onouha (Man City), Erik Edman (Wigan)
Midfielders: Cristiano Ronaldo (Man Utd), Joe Cole (Chelsea), Tom Huddlestone (Tottenham), Sebastian Larsson (Birmingham), Jimmy Bullard (Fulham)
Strikers: Fernando Torres (Liverpool), Jermain Defoe (Portsmouth), Mikael Forssell (Birmingham)

TOTAL POINTS FOR SQUAD: 400 - Jennifer Brubaker, our Premier League managerof the month, scored an amazing 382 points. We've never seen anyone get so close to the perfect score before!
