Bilbao 2-1 Atleti
Not the dream start to the season but Bilbao is never an easy place to go, we could have won the match through missed chances but we didn't finish and regret that.
Atleti 3-1 Almeria
Di Maria 2, Forlan
We have got our first win of the season, we were 1-0 down at half time showing great second half character to put ourselves into a dominating winning positon. New signing Angel Di Maria won us the match scoring two and setting up the third, an all round strong performance!
Standard 1-1 Atleti (ECC)
Not a very good start to our Champions League campaign, they got an 83rd minute equaliser which has really hurt us! Bouncing back from this will be very hard, hopefully we can on a trip to Asturia.
Sporting 3-1 Atleti
A poor performance from Sergio Asenjo cost us the match! He got a final rating of 4.7 and although it is unfair to blame one player, you have to say that his mistakes were our downfall.
Atleti 4-1 Racing
Forlan, Simao, Di Maria, Aguero
We have got back to winning ways here, a quality performance and we conceded late on to take away the clean sheet. Hopefully we can build on this result and get to form.
Malaga 0-3 Atleti
Another good result, Diego's performance was amazing. He was dominant in the air and scored one of the best goals of the season so far, he turned his marker and curled the ball into the far corner from 25 yards out.
Juventus 3-2 Atleti
Di Maria, Forlan
We were unlucky here, we had a few good chances but they weren't taken. They had a few chances and took them. A dissapointing end to the month in all honesty!

Diego has been in tremendous form scoring 8 goals in just 9 games. He has been a great target man, winning balls for team mates and going through on his own. A top month for him!
Young Player of the month:
Angel Di Maria

Angel has been brilliant this month, scoring 5 and assisting 2 in 9 appearances. A great contribution from a winger. If he keeps this up he will definitely be a contender for the Argentinian world cup squad!
