It would be insane to claim that Vilanova has not done a great job with the success he has secured to this point.
Under Tito, Barcelona has set, and continues to extend, the best ever start to a La Liga season (via Goal). La Blaugrana also won their Champions League group and have been lights out in Copa del Rey action.
The entire culmination of Tito Vilanova's work continues to yield outstanding results. Some say "stats don't lie," but for Tito, it may be better to say that results don't lie.
The Catalan boss has innovated Barcelona with new and stronger approaches to their style offensively, while also getting the best out of recently flopping players such as Cesc Fabregas.
One thing is for sure, Tito Vilanova was the right man for the job. We will have to wait to see if he is able to bring in silverware this season, but at this pace, a treble may even be possible.
For his success thus far I give Tito Vilanova a solid A; you cannot ask for better. Nine points ahead in La Liga, 13 points ahead of Real Madrid, great position in Champions League and Copa del Rey—this is what a great manager produces.
Even before Pep Guardiola made his exit official, I was calling for the job to go to Tito Vilanova. I must say that he has not failed to impress, and I personally hope he stays at Barcelona for many years to come.
But the honeymoon is over. Now the real test starts.
