Well, there's not much I can say about this game apart from that we capitalized on Bordeaux's mistakes. The shots were pretty much even, but when we had possession we used it better than they did, they just seemed to hoof the ball up to the strikers and hoped they would do something with the ball. Overall, I am very happy with the win because the new signings need time to gel together so to get a 0-3 win in the first game is very good. We now face Montpellier in the next league game looking for the three points to move up in the league!

This game was a very even game. Both teams had quite a lot of shots on goal, but missed opportunities cost us. When we did have possession we rarely threatened the Montpellier goal, in all fairness we were probably lucky to come away from this game with a draw. I guess it was a point gained which could prove vital towards the end of the season, we now move on to the game against Toulouse FC which we will try for the three points once again!

This was completely different to the Montpellier game, we dominated Toulouse and we could have been 2 or 3 nil up by half-time. Toulouse looked shaky at the back and we was creating a bucket load of chances we just couldn't get the ball into the net. I am disappointed with the result because like I said Toulouse looked a bad side but they got a bit of luck right at the end of the game. Our defense let Toulouse run through into our penalty box and have a crack on goal which unfortunately for us found the way into the back of the net. We should have been able tk close out the game and earn a point, it looks like we need to do some work in training on this as it could cost us games that we should be winning near to the end of the season and costs us valuable points.
