We start December needing a big push
Leicester are first up, and we only take a 1-1 ... not ideal - would have like 3 points at home before two away games
However the first away goes well, a 0-1 V Crystal Palace
Then we go to West Brom - and guess what .... no .. not that...... we decide to smash the holy trinity again ! (post post bar)
That should have been a win .... it should have been ...
Then we get a draw at West Ham and finish the month with the Derby Vs Blackburn who are stone dead last.
They make me work real hard for the result, but nevertheless a 2-1 makes everyone happy !!
The results and scorers are as such:
I can't help but be pleased although I know there should be at least three more points on the board,
Especially with the woodwork and the late goal at West Brom
Sandro Tonali is impressive in the month and with Jan approaching ... Real Madrid pick up the blower...
They offer 45 - he's valued at 34, I go back with outlandish demands of 78 and that all goes away .....
and then in the realms of pantomime season, oh no it doesn't .....
I stall the offer and immediately start panicking ....
I know its going to be a big month in Jan and i need to try and keep some of my star men ... but i know this one is off, and I have to cash in on him ...
His final game is a tricky cup tie V Potsmouth - selfishly play him to cup tie him aswell which is naughty but im p*ssed he's leaving
we win - thanks goodness and our reward is a trickier tie V Wolves
Bloody rubbish... but a cup run would go down a treat !
Were half way through the year snd things don't look too bad... can't see a European push this year but ... you never know !
Next update will be transfer silly season as the big dogs are circling Turf Moor.... looking for Bargains, Ive lost Maddison, I don't want to lose anymore !
Thanks for the comments all.
