2014 - January
Celta 3-1 W - Di Maria scored just before half time. Ronaldo then got a penalty and scored. Celta scored with their first shot on target, wish we could convert our chances like that Isco added the final goal on the 80th minute.
Celta 3-0 W - After beating them in the league comfortably, in this Spanish Cup game I decided to do the regular and give the likes of Jese and Benema a chance. Depsite the scoreline we didn't play up to standard. Benzema scored the penalty given and Pepe scored two goals from corners.
Espanyol 1-4 W - At half time we had the four goal lead thanks to an own goal, Bale, Isco and Ramos. Should of scored more and probably dissapointing to give them a goal near the end.
Celta 0-1 (0-4) W - After already beating them twice this month and leading by three goals on aggregate I decided to mix the team up by playing Ronaldo in the Engache role to rest Isco and play Jese in his favoured postion as and advanced forward. Ronaldo put in a MOTM performance and scored the only goal.
R. Betis 0-2 W - I played a weak team because of Betis being last in the table and it could of been a very different game. After Casemiro scoring in the 70th minute we hit the woodwork three times. The right back Nacho got himself sent off and Betis could of easily scored a couple of times. Eventually, Bale scored late on and made sure of the win.
Barcelona 2-0 - L The quarter final tie with Barcelona was won by them and they deserved it. I put a strong team being away but just not good enough. Hopefully we can come back in the home leg!
Granada 3-2 W - Being 0-2 after fifteen minute I was very worried, we was not playing well. At all. However, an own goal just before half time gave me hope. In the second half I went overload and we starting to get some chances, Pepe and and Verane scored within ten minute with eachother we made a stunning come back!
Barcelona 4-2 W (4-4) L - Barcelona went through on away goals. We put up a great fight! We was 2-0 up at half time, then we got it to 3-0. All of a sudden, Barcelona score. Then with just two minutes to go we get it to 4-1 and looking like we was gonna go through but just one minute after Masherano scores from a corner. Gutted.
Well that was eight games this month! I admit, I am left dissapointed in the Spanish Cup but with the amount of games that we had played and only three or four day gaps I'm not too frustrated.
Player of the Month: Marcelo
Been fairly consistent plus some MOTM perfomances he is the best player this month!
