Manager Index Double Update | Rodgers flies up table, Wenger still top

A double update this week, broken down into each week. Week 15 A bumper number of overall points scored this week with 253 points, the highest tally for 8 weeks.  Many of these points were awarded as a result of  a couple of the big boys being turned over and some other surprising results.

For details of how the EPL Manager Impact Index operates, and the criteria for points, see this post (http://eplindex.wpengine.com/38232/premier-league-manager-impact-index.html).

EPL Manager Index Week 4 | Villas Boas, Moyes & Laudrup impress

Whilst a lot of the media discussion from Week 4 of the Premier League has revolved around boring games, the low level of goals scored so far, and even the amount of time that the ball is actually in play, it's actually been a very busy weekend for the Manager Impact Index with Villas Boas, David Moyes and Michael Laudrup being the stand out performers this week. A total of 239 points were earned by the EPL managers this week, …
