We have started well this month but we also slumped to shock defeats towards the end of the month.
PEP’S NOTES: Another good win against a team that will be in the European places come the end of the season. We dominated the game again with 65% of the possession and that is what I like to see especially against weaker teams. Oxlade-Chamberlain got his first goal for the club and it was a great one as he ran from inside his own half to slot a powerful shot at the inside post.
PEP’S NOTES: What a game. This was a great show but on by two great German clubs. We did the Bundesliga proud. An excellent end to end game that finished all square. I was happy to take the point due to Dortmund really going for it in the closing stages of the game. Mario Gomez scored a peach of a goal to bring a point back to Munich.
PEP’S NOTES: Nein nein nein nein. We dominated the game but we just could not put the ball into the net. I did play a weaker team so that did play a part in the result but we still should be beating teams like this. I am very disappointed we had to suffer a defeat at home but we must press on now and recover well from this.
PEP’S NOTES: This was one of them games you knew they were going to comeback. We got our goal which was tough to get so I told the boys to sit back and hit them on the counter. The scored in the 89th minute and then again in injury time and there was no time left to recover. I must hand it to them though as they played excellent and never gave in at all.
The position looks bad but we are not that far off the top. All we need to do is recover well and we will be right back up there within no time.
PEP’S NOTES: A great start to our European campaign and this is a competition I want to do well in this season. This game was always going to be tough so to come away with a 3-1 win is a great result for the boys.
We sit top of the Group and I intend to stay there all the way thought the Group stages.
Player Of The Month
Holger Badstuber has been excellent all month. He has dominated in the air but he has also pushed forward to help the attack out which I am very pleased about.
