Simon Cox has been great so far for me in my Nottingham Forest save. Glad he's doing the business for you, too.

August Review

Starting the season, with a 2-0 loss against West Ham was not how i wanted to start, still, we picked ourselves up and thrashed Hull 4-0 and reminded them how cruel the Premier League can be. You know it's gonna be you're day when your centre back scores a hat-trick! The Capital one cup (why can't it still be the Carling cup, much easier to say and type!) game was a huge boost. I decided to play a whole host of youngsters as Barnsley were only a League 1 side, and the youngster performed brilliantly. Back to the Premier League, and the Chelsea game was a deep disappointment. We just didn't turn up and i guess we forgot the sheer talent we were facing.

I have to say, Aaron Martin and Ashley Barnes have both impressed with their hat-tricks, so they will both receive my Star Man of the Month.

The month sees us 14th in the league, but after only 3 league games we can't complain too much. Currently ahead of Tottenham (16th) though!
