”Run can continue” – Zinedine Zidane
A shorter month for the lads, but that did not affect them at all. Southampton provided us with tough opposition and were hard to break down. The lads preserved and thought through to gain the victory. I was very pleased with their attitude.
We were quite fortunate against Stoke, two first half goals from Romelu put us in control of the game. Although in the second half Stoke came out fighting, despite the fact they had gone down to ten men. We had to dig deep and weather a storm of pressure from Stoke. In the end, we came out on top and that was very pleasing.
The Reading game was a strange one, both teams were very competitive, but neither us of wanted to give too much away. The game soon became very compact and only came alive in the last five minutes. Late drama as Reading salvaged a deserved point in all honesty.
Due to the shortage of games this month, I have decided not to award the player of the month award, leaving it until December as we have a busy month ahead.
