February 2015: Goaldeneye
Goals were no problem in February
After the disappointing performances of January, February was a short month where we could redeem ourselves with maximum points from our three games. We faced three teams which we knew were below us and were beatable, but we could not afford complacency as the promotion race became even closer than ever before.
You may remember that day at the Polideportivo Misael Delgado when we nearly gifted Minasoro FC
back into a game which we lead 5-0. Well funnily enough, we did it again. 5-0 up at half-time this time, Minasoro clawed back on their home court advantage and nearly stole two points. As you may be able to tell I was not happy at all, and let the team know how angry despite getting the three points.
The last time we faced Central Ítalo
we were shocked by the score of 2-1. This time there were no such issues and we finally gave a commanding performance without letting a lead slip. Reyes was mighty fine and his encouraging return from injury was maintained in this match with a hat-trick.
To conclude this short month, we faced SC Guaraní
, an extremely tough team who I did not expect to get a result against. Fortunately my players proved me wrong, comprehensively. To beat a top side like that 5-2 is a great performance and shows that confidence is high. Doubles from Reyes and Cañas put us on our way.
We're nearly there. Due to having not played a game we're 7th
but have a game in hand and can jump into 4th. Due to Estrella Roja's significantly higher goal difference we'd need at least a seven goal win in our game in hand to even equal it, which is unlikely to happen.
February Player of the Month
is an assist machine and despite playing wide out on the left, not in his favoured attacking midfield position. Despite being in a position where you can often get isolated Granados still manages to have such an impact.
The takeover is still in negotiations and after infiltrating Freddy Robinson's, or Mr. Inferno, residence, I've discovered that he's going to be using Hermandad Gallega as a way to hide his drug money. The bad news is Robinson and Mea Vitali are in the final stages of negotiations so I'll need to pull something out of the hat.
