ReviewWe played at our very best this month. Our huge wins against Honka and againt Sheriff proved that. Our goalscoring form has been nothing short of fantastic. There was not a single game where we looked like losing, we dominated every game.
Vincent Dubois has to be my Player of the Month again. He has been red-hot for us and there has not been anybody anywhere near his class. He scored another five goals this month and has been a superstar.

Next month we will have our second leg against Sheriff which we will look to win. We then have two easy games against AC Oulu and the rest will be plain sailing, including a Vali-Suomi derby against JJK. We will look to get maximum points from these games and put both hands on the league title before playing even twenty games this season.
I am very happy that we have found our best form of the season so far. With a very young squad, our performances can only get better! We will be looking to grow as a team and to keep building up our reputation as one of the toughest teams to play in all of Europe. Until next time, stay tuned!
