We started the month well with a superb victory over Numancia to put us top of the league if only for a few hours. Absolute domination for the full 90 minutes, it was like watching an exhibition.
Unfortunately a week later we couldn't overcome a feisty Mirandés side who seemed more intent on disrupting play than playing football. But fair play to them, it worked in their favour as they ground out a point.
A week later we had Zaragoza and I had to make a decision three days before our second leg trip to Valencia. As the league is my priority, I opted to field a strong side and it proved correct as we picked up the comfortable victory.
We weren't however so fortunate in the cup where Valencia came out guns blazing against a tired first team and we ultimately went out of the competition. We still shown our grit however the opposition were just too strong.
Another solid month keeping us right up there with the frontrunner Getafe. This could be shaping up to be a great Title fight. One unfortunate thing is that over 50% of my starting eleven have teams in better divisions sniffing around them and six of which have made me promise to sell them if the right offer comes in... January could prove troublesome.
