The month started with one of our best every performances! With the front 3 playing at that level we started the month 3 points clear of Real M after their late defeat.
It would prove to be the highest moment of September with a respectable draw at Porto, closely followed by dropped points at Girona, due to heavy rotation for the El Clásico!
it was proved once again that rotation before these big games isn't always a good idea because it puts more pressure on the team coming into the game when you drop points
But this one was more than that. Barcelona were completely humiliated with their heaviest defeat since 1995!
1 win in 4 meetings against Real M for Fornas.
Borja Fornas – I'm speechless. I take full responsibility for defeats like this and for now I can't explain what went wrong for us, though I will say this results makes us work harder for the next game. Today is the worse moment of my career and I must use this to push the players back to what we did previously. For the time being we will feel the emotion of what has happened, but then we will be back out training and putting things right.
The month ended on a comfortable win against the giants Milan, but that Madrid defeat will leave a sour taste in the mouth for a very long time.
ScottT - Very happy with the transfer activity
Jack - Even this early on he is performing at a level that justifies the price paid.
