LEAGUE TABLE


PLAYER OF THE MONTH

LUCAS OCAMPOS

The Argentine winger has had an absolutely sensational month. Scoring a hat trick against Barcelona was fantastic and his all round game in that demolition of the Nou Camp Giants was amazing and he contributed to every goal in some way shape and form, whether it be scoring, assisting or fantastic play in the build up. He has been exceptional in every game he has played for us this month and capped it off with two goals in his last two games, scoring the equaliser on Matchday 2 of the Champions League against Lazio and then scoring an absolutely stunning winner against Toulouse in the league and as such he is our player of the month.

MANAGER'S THOUGHTS

http://i1017.photobucket.com/albums/af298/Mg1001/Olympique%20de%20Marseille%20Manager%20Story/Uploads/59125d56-f5e8-4840-b0ca-92a5d93fea84.jpg

Another terrific month, both in Ligue 1 and in the UEFA Champions League. What can we say about the Champions League other than the start we have made has been beyond our wildest dreams. To go out against Barcelona, albeit at the Stade Velodrome and smash six past one of the best teams in the world over the last 10 years was amazing and we have got the attention of the entire world now after that result. To then go and pick up another point against Lazio on Matchday 2 was brilliant and it means we’re in a fantastic position going into Matchday 3 next month against Man City, and we’ve given ourselves as good a chance as possible of making it through this group. I’m not so sure we will but we have to believe we’ve got every chance after the results we’ve had so far. As for Ligue 1, the goals dried up a little bit but we have still picked up positive results in every game and with that including a 3-1 victory over PSG we have to be very happy. We dominated against Clermont Foot but only managed to put two past them, and perhaps we should have scored more against Toulouse and scored at least once against Nice. Beating Caen was relieving especially after they played so defensively but overall it means we’ve had another good set of results that leaves us top of the League going into October and we’re really starting to look like title challengers now and it is starting to get exciting. I must not also forget to mention the efforts of our defence, as we have now only conceded 5 goals all season in all competitions and the amount of clean sheets we’re keeping is brilliant and long may it continue.


Excellent record. Hopefully you stay on top.
2016-04-06 19:51#228756 MJK46 : Excellent record. Hopefully you stay on top.

Thanks mate, hopefully this is the year!
Absolutely smashed it this month, nice work!
That 3-1 win over PSG will prove to be so important towards the end of the season mate, even if it seems like they're far away at the moment they will be back up your backside soon enough! :D
2016-04-06 21:06#228780 Justice : Absolutely smashed it this month, nice work!

Thanks man! It felt good to do that well and hopefully we can maintain this level for the rest of the season!

Yeah think you might be right man! They've not started this season well at all but they will be back, they always are! :P

RE: MARCH STORY OF THE MONTH


Hi Guys,

Unfortunately no new content in this update, but I would like to say thanks for everyone voted for my story in March’s Story of the Month poll, which led to me winning the poll. To win was absolutely amazing and completely unexpected, especially as I am a relatively new writer to this site.

This has been my first story on the site to ever last more than a few posts after joining the site a few years back. I can only thank you, the readers for reading it and commenting on the content I post when you do because the amount of views and comments is phenomenal and again, completely unexpected as I really don’t believe it to be that good. The fact that you visibly enjoy it means that I get really pumped up for posting every day as it makes me feel like you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it so thank you.

Like I said to win was fantastic and completely unbelievable especially as the 4 other competitors in the poll, Griffo’s Toulouse story, Jack’s long running Adam Chabukiani, Swanny’s Dortmund or Warrington’s Everton story, are all brilliant and very well written and are all followed extremely closely by myself and have even influenced the way I write my updates and this story.

With lots more content for this story already written up, there is an awful lot more to come with lots of thrills along the way and I have no intention of stopping this story anytime soon.

Thank you again for reading and it would be fantastic to see you all back here soon,

Mgriffin2012.


Well done MG, good start to the season and a deserved win with story of the month!
