Season Eight: November Update
After our recent drop in form, we were slowly beginning to sink down the table. We were looking to halt our fall and raise our game to challenge for promotion.
This month was amazing for us. We won five games and drew one of six games in total. We started off the month with convincing wins over Tranmere and Sheffield United at home, with Euan Smith and Isaiah Osbourne being the stand-out stars. We then went to Elland Road to beat Leeds 5-1. Our next two games were title clashes against QPR and Everton, where we came out the victors for both games. We then went away to Birmingham to earn a hard-fought draw. A brilliant month and I'm glad to have won the Manager of the Month award!
Player of the Month
Euan Smith is my player of the month for November. The Scottish striker scored six goals in six games in what was a fantastic month for him. He has been our key player and he will continue to be so in the coming few seasons.
We have climbed back to the top of the table and we have a seven point lead over Everton, who also have a game-in-hand over us. Our Goal Difference is now an impressive +21, and that is thanks to our fantastic defensive record. Hopefully we can stay in this position for the rest of the season.
Sander Kaljuste is an Estonian wonderkid signed on a free transfer. He was 18 when I did sign him (the day before he became 19), so technically he passes my rules for foreign signings. He has wonderful all-round technical stats so I will train him as an MC and play him there. He will become a wonderful player and an amazing capture for us.
Fee: Free Transfer
We have seven fixtures next month which will be very tiring. We kick off with three home games against Barnsley, Sheffield Wednesday and Blackburn. We then play away to Burnley before a Boxing Day match away to Charlton. We finish off the month with home games against Bournemouth and Leicester. I am hoping for at least 10 points from the next month.
