2015 - January
Celta 6-0 W
- With Casillas has suffering a horrible injury and will be missing for three months, lets hope Diego Lopez can fulfill his boots! Ronaldo was in top form for this game scoring a wonderful hat-trick. The other three goals came from Pepe with a brace and one from Marcelo. Can not judge Lopez because of them having just the one shot on target all game!
Sevilla 2-2 D
- In the Spanish Cup fifth round, Nacho and Morata gave us a two goal lead, in despite of this, Sevilla came back to draw the game. Therefore, in the home tie we need to improve but we do have two away goals.
Osasuna 5-2 W
- With them scoring early on, we had to make a comeback in this game and Lamela scoring a beautiful hat trick we certainly did that! Pepe also scored a hat trick however, I guess only two of the goals counted with the other being an own goal!
Sevilla 3-0 W (5-2) W
- In the second leg of the Spanish Cup fifth round, I decided to give Stegen his debut and give Sanabria a chance. Goals from Varane, Di Maria and Isco fired us to the quarter finals against Malaga. Stegen played well on his debut, saving the two shots they had.
Athletico 3-3 D
- A poor performance by some of our players in this game meant we drawed. Stegen was poor, Varane made a mistake and Ronaldo looked very out of sorts. Isco scored very early however it 3-1 to them at half time, Alonso and Lewandowski got us a draw. Athletico are trailing us in second so I would like to have won however, a draw is an okay result. To make matters worse, Alonso got red carded in the 90th minute.
Malaga 2-2 D
- In the first leg of the Spanish Cup quarter final, Stegen had yet again, another poor performance. Furthermore, Morata did not finish at all which meant we had to scrap a draw thanks to Ramos and Pepe.
Valencia 1-1 D
- With Stegen recently being poor, Diego Lopez came back into the side. We had a total of 26 shots, 14 on target, they had 4 shots with one hitting the target. This is when this game is so frustrating! The goal was scored by Isco. As well as this, Pepe got sent off in the 50th minute.
Malaga 1-2 W (3-4) W
- Finally... a win! After three draws Lewandoswki fired us into the semi finals with a brace. Next stop, Athletico Madrid!
With drawing four out of the eight games we played this month, I guess this would have to be the worst month of results yet. This may be because of Stegen still settling in clearly, lack of goals, tiredness within the squad, injuries and suspensions or maybe just a bit of bad luck. Whatever the problem is, I hope it gets sorted! Ter Stegen hasn't been impressive, I think I will stick to Diego Lopez for a while.
Player of the Month: Sergio Ramos
The team has been a bit poor this month and just not that great in general. Ramos stood out at being consistent and perhaps some of the draws this month could of turned to losses without him.
