Season 2031/2032: September
5-3 Win vs Chelsea (Away), Barclays Premier League - 13/09/2031
Pattinama scored his first two goals of the season in the eight-goal game at Terry Arena
This was one of the most frustratingly open games we've played in for a long time. Early goals from Pattinama and Chabbert gave us an early two-goal lead but Chelsea halved our advantage through Danilo Riveros. Miodrag Kostic scored our third of the game, before Killian Moreau pulled back another back for Chelsea, all before the 35th minute. Chelsea's Patrik Sklenar was sent off minutes later, opening the game up even more. Pattinama scored his second, and our fourth, of the game two minutes in to the second half, and Chabbert got on to the end of a Pattinama cross on the 50th minute to head us in to a 5-2 lead. Moreau claimed his second of the game with minutes to go, but it proved to be no more than consolation.

5-1 Win vs VfL Wolfsburg (A), UEFA Champions League Group E - 17/09/2031
Stephen Murray scored the pick of the goals in Germany as Whitehawk scored 5 again
An early goal by Wolfsburg's Brazilian attacking midfielder Mosquito unsettled Whitehawk with just minutes on the clock. However, left winger Stephen Murray rifled in a well-placed effort to equalise after twenty minutes. A penalty goal from Matt Ursell, a header from Albert Wetzel and skillful finish from Hippolyte Chabbert, following a dribble which saw him beat three in the box, gave Whitehawk a fantastic 4-1 lead at half-time. Dennis Seifert got on the end of a Vicente Díez flick-on from a corner to score the only goal of the second half, and seal an impressive win in Germany for Whitehawk.

5-0 Win vs Aston Villa (H), Barclays Premier League - 20/09/2031
Dino Slavica's half-volley in the first minute set the tone for another goal-fest
Left-back Dino Slavica opened his account for the season with a thunderous half-volley in the first minute. Christiaan Pattinama doubled Whitehawk's lead from a set-piece routine. Miodrag Kostic's first-half hat-trick put a shine on a very happy day at the Whitehawk Stadium for the hosts.
Miodrag Kostic (Whitehawk) - 9.7/10
6-2 Win vs Charlton (A), Capital One Cup 3rd Round - 23/09/2031
Pattinama scored six as Whitehawk cruised past Charlton
It was a game where South African goalkeeper Bernard Sethlodi made his debut, and did not impress. While he is inexperienced, he failed to keep out two relatively feeble shots which gave Charlton two goals. If it wasn't for the very excellent Christiaan Pattinama, who became the first Whitehawk player to score six goals in a single competitive fixture, it could have been a very different story. It's fair to say that Sethlodi shall never again don the Whitehawk shirt, having been relegated to the U21s. You may say this is harsh considering he played just one game, but I have high standards, and these standards win trophies.

4-1 Win vs Southampton (A), Barclays Premier League - 27/09/2031
Pattinama proved once again how much of a threat he is with two ell executed goals
Sami Hyppia's Southampton side had become a real force in recent years, and they took the lead in style early on. Sean Howard breached our back four with considerable ease and rifled a shot past Elorrieta to give Southampton a first-half lead. A well-worked short corner routine saw Pattinama fire home an exquisite volley from inside the six yard box to level the game before half-time, and he doubled his tally when he went one-on-one with the goalkeeper, with only one outcome. Adílson Francisco volleyed home a Vicente Acosta cross to double our advantage, and Pattinama's attempted overhead kick took a major deflection off of Filip Schreier and went in to give Whitehawk a comfortable victory.

4-0 Win vs Napoli (H), UEFA Champions League Group E - 30/09/2031
Pattinama was always going to be the star of the show, and he collected yet another brace
Christiaan Pattinama was our star of the month and he ended the month on a high, with two first-half goals putting us in a very comfortable position at half-time. Miodrag Kostic got his name on the scoresheet with a powerful left-foot drive from just inside the box, and Matt Ursell rounded up the proceedings when he picked up a rebound before beating Mazzone at the near post.

A thirteen goal month meant Christiaan Pattinama
was our best player. Having not scored a single goal in August, he was expected to step up and improve, and he certainly did! He rocked every team we played against, and was always a threat. His creative ability and his shooting skills were on show for the world to see.

Barclays Premier League
Five games played, five games won. We have 15 points, and two more than second place Manchester United. We've conceded too many goals for my liking, and will need to improve defensively. Our attacking record, especially thanks to Pattinama, has been nothing short of fantastic. We want another unbeaten season and that's our objective for this campaign.
UEFA Champions League
I forgot to upload a screenshot of the group table, sorry! I can tell you though that after those two games, we lead the group.
We face one of our main title rivals in the form of Manchester City next month. Not too many big games to be played, although we do travel to Glasgow to face Celtic in the Champions League. As per usual, I expect nothing less than a 100% win record.
