Thanks guys, we'll keep pushing forward for more glory
Season Nine: February Update
This was a massive month for us, with a big FA Cup game against Derby County, and a Capital One Cup final against Arsenal. We already know the result of the final, but how did we fair during the rest of the month?
We started off the month with a thrilling 3-2 victory over West Brom before hosting Derby County in the FA Cup 5th round. We ran out 2-0 winners, thanks to a brace from Joe Mason. Next up was the Capital One Cup final against Arsenal, where we came out as shock 2-0 winners, with captain Euan Smith scoring both goals. We then appeared to have a cup final hangover as we lost to both Forest and Everton. I'm delighted to have won a trophy and progressed to the 1/4 finals of the FA Cup. Hopefully we can keep going on strong.
Player of the Month
Euan Smith is undoubtedly my player of the month for February. Could I possibly give the award to anybody else after his unbelievable cup final heroics? His goal scoring ethics have been fantastic, and we would be lost without him. If I could define Euan Smith with just three words, these are what they would be: CAPTAIN, HERO, LEGEND.
Barclays Premier League
We have slipped down a place to 11th in the league. However, we are still ten points away from the relegation zone with just nine games left to play. I think that we are pretty safe right now, but we will keep pushing forward to finish higher up the table.
We have just three games next month. We start with an away trip to Manchester United in the FA Cup quarter finals, where we will be trying our best to sneak a win, or even a replay at worst. We then play Fulham at home in what will be a newly unveiled 12.5k seater Vauxhall Stadium. We finish the month with an away trip to Arsenal, who will be looking for revenge after we embarrassed them at Wembley.
