PAR KÉVIN BRIAND |30 sept. 2017|CLUB
It was not all sunshine and rainbows in September as Paris FC struggled all month long. In five league matches they were able to only score two goals while only winning one match. Other results include a draw and three losses. As September ends Paris FC are in 14th place with eight points.
Paris would start off the month on a bad foot as fellow promoted club Dunkerque thrashed the club by a score of 2-0. Not much is to report here as it was a very lackluster match stat wise.
Matchday four was one that you could call a victory for the club. Despite scoring no goals our defense pulled off a major fight against Valenciennes who were the big favorites. Paul Charruau
made several key saves to persevere a 0-0 draw.
It took matchday six for us to score once again. In a very rare victory Paris looked sharp and were firing on all cylinders. The only goal came in the 10th minute as Ryan Mmaee
scored after a nutmeg on the Béziers defense. At this point Paris FC are 0-1-1 against the two fellow promoted teams of last years Championnat National.
A trip to Lens was on the card for matchday seven. This was the second loss of the month as we could not hit a shot on target. The one bright spot was that goalkeeper Siaka Koné
made his PFC debut. Despite allowing a goal early on he would fight on and made sure no other goals would get past him.
September ended as FC Metz came to town. Here Paris would struggle against the third place team as the final score was 4-1 for the visitors. Ryan Mmaee
scored our only goal of the match with a strong header in the 16th minute.
Player of the Month:
It is obvious that Ryan Mmaee
is the reason we are not dead last. His play has been crucial early on with his play making ability and scoring. With five starts the 20 year old Belgian score our only 2
goals of the month. He also collected 1
Player of the Match award and completed a 6.90
match rating for the month of September.
"I really do not know what is going on here this month. We might not be the best team and that we shouldn't be here but I am happy for their fight most of the time. Hopefully in October we can change things around especially against Red Star."
