A crazy month
A mental month, as you read through you'll see what I mean, but this month has been nothing short of eventful. I definitely hadn't planned for some of these goings ons, but things happen you know.
Lovely away day
Debuting the youngsters
What a game!
Transfers (I know, I can't believe it either?!?!)
This is done in the order the deals took place.
So where do we stand?
A very positive start to the season to be honest, we went unbeaten and have managed to keep ourselves up in the top half so far. However, all the teams we've played so far are predicted to finish around us so we're still in for a long slog. I fucked up a bit on this, the league table is 1 game in advance, apologies.
Player of the Month
In what has been a transitional few months for us as we saw many key players leave and new ones arrive, one player has been an anchor in it all, scoring 5 and assisting 5 too in only 7 games so far this season, this lad may be one of my best ever signings. Such a good player, Mamadou 'The Hump' Zoundi
Flop of the Lot
It's players like this that cause me to wonder whether FM has a 'pressure sensor' built in, as this lad has lost all tight competition for his place and has since played very poorly. Outshone by his defensive partner who's been flawless as usual, Zoggers picks up this award for the 3rd time, and he's not even that bad usually.
Hectic is the word
All in all it's been a very unexpected month, I really wasn't planning on that amount of transfer activity, but the Hutten transfer changed everything. Additionally, the 3-3 draw versus Arsenal has to be a highlight, if things go well this season, I will definitely be looking to Riveros as a new striker.
Our Euro Cup group includes SC Bastia, a difficult team in the year 2170, Dynamo Kiev and Viktoria Plzen. I'd definitely hope to quality as I think we can only expect to lose against Bastia. You can see some of the European nights thrown into our fixture list for the upcoming month of September too, as we face a more congested run due to Europe. Please ignore the one extra game, again, I messed up.
I hope you've enjoyed our transfer window updates, all comments will be reciprocated.
