    One season on: observations since manager Glory Days arrival at Arsenal

    Reflective: Arsenal manager Glory Days has had a positive effect on the Gunners
    Its been approximately one season since the arrival of Australian manager Glory Days to the North London club. Arsenal sits comfortably in eight place with 26 points and is in prime position to push to the top with only a four point gap separating the Gunners and league leader Preston North End. Some observations since the arrival of manager Glory Days:
    Financial stability forces frugal spending
    An interesting development is Arsenals spending compared to last season. Last season, the North London sanctioned lavish purchases such as Ukrainian central defender Yaroslav Rakitskiy for 15 million pounds and Togolese utility player Alaixys Romao for 7.5 million pounds however this season, the largest sum spent on a player was 6.5 million on Algerian striker Islam Slimani.
    While some may consider a lack of large transfer expenditure as a lack of ambition, others will look at it as a patient and careful approach and necessary in an era of financial responsibility. Arsenal has a solid squad with a plethora of talent however Glory Days will not spend unless the right player is made available as Rakitskiy and Romao have demonstrated. A change in policy may come if they return to the Premier League however for the time being a sensible and sustainable model is necessary.
    Youth is the way forward
    Since the appointment of manager Glory Days, he has had a clear ambit: give youth a chance. One of the major criticisms levelled at North London was their overreliance on older players with no youth products or young prospects given an opportunity to shine at the North London club however manager Glory Days changed that. First, the Australian manager bought youth to bolster the youth team with the hopes of developing into first team contributor then he proceeded to give promising youngsters Pedro Obiang and Jordan Ferri a chance to prosper in the first team however their selections were picked on good recent form rather than obligation. They have emerged as real talents and have contributed immediately with a combined nine goals and five assists, with only sixteen league matches gone; there isnt any reason why the talented duo cant add to that tally.
    Arsenal has considerable squad options
    The Arsenal squad has undergone a myriad of changes however a noticeable difference is the considerable depth of the squad. There are two players for every position and the depth has provided a crucial part in their extended run in both competitions while maintaining momentum in the league.

    A few interesting developments have happened since I last posted. The Gunners managed to sign Rakitskiy from Preston North End for 15 million, a big thanks to Riece for the deal and despite his big transfer fee, he is well worth it if we can remain in Division Two.
    Since the Man City win, we have had two wins, one draw and one loss (Swindon Town) but more important we got 7 points from a possible 12 which given the Gunners' poor league form is an excellent return.
    The real marvel of my current season of Dutch goalkeeper Jeroen Zoet who since his transfer has conceded six goals in nine appearances which has been central to our success. A real steal for 220k plus Fernandez and safety is looking realistic with eight points from a possible next nine matches and five points away from 17th placed Wigan.
    Next up is Rotherham

    I've been away on holiday through the Easter long weekend and I was given an early Easter present in the way of two excellent wins over promotion chasing Northampton Town and relegation threatened Manchester City.
    Despite the positioning of Man City, these were two major scalps and help us push our way out of the relegation zone. We are now one of the form teams in Division Two but we will need to maintain our good run if we are to be safe.
    Some major developments while I was on holiday.
    Transfers In
    Huge signing for the Gunners, eventhough Sigurdsson may not have the glamour of a 90+ rated signing, he plays as if he is a 90+ rated player on SM. He scored the winner against Northampton Town on his debut and against Manchester City taking his season total to 10 goals (including his time to Chesterfield).
    This completes a three way deal which sees us get Rojo and Sigurdsson for Khacheridi, Valero and Pozuelo. Although some may question why Valero departed for Sigurdsson but his contributions have already suggested the move may have been the right one for the Gunners.
    Dirar is a versatile right sided footballer capable of playing right back, right wing back and right wing, he will provide an excellent option in the midfield and defence. With the departure of Pedro Leon, Dirar will give us another option on the right hand side of the field and he will probably keep his 87 rating with his 1,000 plus minutes with Monaco.
    A handy pick up which gives us depth.
    With 13 matches to go, we will need to get 15 points which is possible to save us from relegation. Next up is Swindon Town.

    Highly coveted Marcos Rojo and Ryo Miyaichi join Glory Days’ revolution




    Argentine defender Marcos Rojo has emerged as a top class defender under Glory Days

    Arsenal pulled off a transfer coup signing promising young players Marcos Rojo and Ryo Miyachi. Manager Glory Days has taken little time to impose his philosophy on the Gunners with a flurry of transfers within the first two weeks of his tenure. While the Miyachi transfer is in a similar vein to recruiting for the youth team, the move for Rojo is expected to have an immediate impact on the first team squad.
    Manager Glory Days reunites with the talented Argentine defender who he nurtured during his time at Chesterfield. Under the tutelage of Glory Days, Rojo established himself as the undisputed first choice at central defence alongside Spanish defender Mikel San Jose, playing a crucial part in Division Three’s best defence last season.
    The Argentine defender bids farewell to Chesterfield where he became a fan favourite, spending nine seasons with 211 appearances becoming one of the most coveted young defenders in Chesterfield history. His importance was exemplified when he won the fan’s favourite for his improved defensive play and marked maturity, Rojo will need to make a step up in order to earn a regular first team spot but he has a believer in the manager.
    With the addition of Rojo, the Gunners have a player who has experience playing in multiple systems implemented by manager Glory Days and remarkably versatile being able to play centre half and left fullback, the defensive unit has been enhanced with a player determined to play at the highest level.
    In exchange, Arsenal bid farewell to Spanish midfielder Borja Valero who was tasked with the creative outlet for the Gunners however a lack of production in the last two season with 3 goals and 3 assists in 24 appearances spelled the end for the 31 year old at the London side. With the departure of Valero, many expect the likes of Yoann Gourcuff and Extebarria Benat to fill the void however there are reports emanating that Benat is due to complete a 7.2 million pound move to Premier League side, Charlton Athletic.
    Questions remain over what Glory Days intentions are for the Arsenal squad but the Rojo transfer is a step in the right direction.

    Arsenal manager Glory Days stamps authority with a flurry of transfers




    Youth is the way forward: Arsenal recruited promising defender Lindsay Rose

    In less than two weeks, manager Glory Days has wanted to put his stamp on the Gunner's squad. A clear focus on youth has been evident with five of his six incoming transfers being for players under the age of 24. A clear vision on building the Gunner's back from the grass roots,focusing on the youth team, allowing youngsters to come through the ranks, something Glory Days was known for at Chesterfield.
    While Chesterfield would need immediate results from their youth signings, Arsenal can afford to wait with big names like Spanish defensive midfielder Xabi Alonso and Mikel Artet and German striker Stefan Kiessling, the signings will look to the future without the pressure of immediacy. With a lack of attacking flair, the Gunners recruited promising youngsters Rachid Ghezzal, Amin Younes and Modou Barrow.
    Younes, 19 has been touted as the next big thing considered a diamond in the rough however his talent is undoubted with excellent dribbling skill and a more refined passing game. Under manager Glory Days he could potentially be refined into an impressive youngster through the ranks. The recruitment of Ghezzal and Barrow demonstrate Arsenal’s determination to polish young players.
    The Gunners further bolstered their youth team with the recruitment of French defender Lindsay Rose and French front man Benjamin Jeannot. Rose, 23 emerged as a breakout star at Valenciennes as a central defender, Arsenal were quick to lure the French defender from Lyon’s grasp while Jeannot, 23 has impressed during his time at Lorient, playing as a fox in the box and will add depth to the forward line since the departure of Spanish striker David Villa.
    Complementing the rebuilding of the youth team, Glory Days added experience with the signing of Alaixys Romao. The 31 year old will add leadership, direction and versatility. The Togolese international has six seasons of experience in Division Two with 166 appearances with Notts County and Exeter City.
    His capability of playing central midfield, defensive midfielder and central defence will enhance his importance to the club but Romao exemplifies what it means to be a Glory Days’ player: committed, versatile and professional.
    A clear commitment to relying on youth to step up when required and growing from within, Glory Days has been given a wide ambit to his instil his philosophy and he is determined to do it from the ground up.

    It is now 9 games unbeaten and 5 straight wins as we climb into the top half of the table.
    Despite the absence of key front-men Negredo and Pizarro, we are getting goals and points - this time courtesy of a late strike from Diafra Sakho, a crowd-pleaser having come through the ranks to become a super-sub of late. Maxi Moralez has also been incredible support since joining the club; managing 2 assists, 1 goal, 1 MOTM, and an average rating of 8.33 inside his first three appearances for the club.
    Next up: Milton Keynes Dons (A)

    I haven't been posting because of real life commitments but I have been quietly rebuilding the Arsenal side back from the ground up.
    I looked to get some quality youth into squad with the likes of Lindsay Rose (who will get minutes with the season ending injury to Bisevic, possibly a cheeky +1 rise), exciting wingers Barrow, Rachid Gezzal and Amin Younes (big thanks to Raz for the quick deal) and promising striker Benjamin Jeannot.
    I also bolstered the side with a bit of experience with veteran Axaixys Romao from Exeter City for 7.5 million and young Dutch keeper Jeroen Zoet. Key departures of Villa and Aspas may only be the start for some of the "big" names in the Gunners squad.
    Romao will add stoutness to my defence and his versatility playing central defense, central and defensive midfield will bolster a thinner squad. While Zoet will take over from the hapless Fernandez who cost us six goals (including one friendly) in his last two performances and changes needed to be made.
    The results are coming in after a 4-2 beating at the hands of Aston Villa, we came back with a vengeance with a solid 3-0 thrashing of Hartlepool United. Captain Xabi Alonso, Shaqiri and Kiessling got the goals but it was debutante keeper Zoet who stole the show, keeping a clean sheet in his first game for the gunners while Romao performed well at central defense.
    Our goal is to get 45 points as soon as possible to secure our Division Two status and see where we go from there, next up is promotion chasing Leeds United.

    A big week for Chesterfield, the Spireites managed 1-1 draw with second place Brighton Hove and Albion. After positive results against Shorpe United and Coventry City, we shot up to 8th place (one point away from 6th spot)
    In transfer news:
    It has been an unprecedented period of transfer movement for Chesterfield with as many as five players moving into the squad while one moved away.
    Transfers Out:
    Chesterfield "veteran" Denys Garmash moves on after 223 appearances over seven seasons, he played a key part in the Spireites ascent into Division Three but with the purchase of Imbula, we needed to balance the books and unfortunately Garmash had to go.
    Transfers In:
    A massive signing for the Spireites as young Imbula moves to Chesterfield. We have finally found an imposing and defensively strong midfielder to replace Garmash. At the cut price of 7.5 million, I was happy to pay for such a young, promising player. Hopefully he will help us fight for promotion this season and develop a strong playing relationship with Nordtveit.
    Another excellent signing for the Spireites, this time it was more for a position of need. After the departure of Luca Antonelli and the poor form of Fabian Johnson, we lacked a specialist left sided fullback but that is exactly what Kolasinac offers and at the age of 21, he can only get better.
    Kim's transfer has completed an overhaul of the left fullback position for the Spireites. Kim has done well since coming back from injuries and Asian Cup duties, picking up 995 minutes and even if he is not in line for a rise this season, he will be a useful back up for Kolasinac.

    Chesterfield crash out of both cups in the early stages of the season, congrats to the Posh manager for a dominant performance that only yielded one goal. good game Muallan!
    A big upset especially against promotion hunting Birmingham, Good game Veigas! A solidatary goal from Norwegian midfielder Nordtveit was enough to break the dead lock and give us the points!
    One of the worst performances in recent memory for Chesterfield. The low light of the season no doubt. In all my years playing SM I have never seen a keeper miss every shot on target and get a 4 rating in a match but that's just what Bravo did and he consigned us to our worst loss in recent memory.
    To add salt to the wounds, Rojo was sent off and will miss out on three matches while Karim Bellarabi is out with a dead leg.
    In transfer news:
    An offer too good to refuse and it helps keep us in the green. Brought him for 6.5 million about three seasons ago but let him go for a slightly larger amount. So I'm pleased with this piece of business.
    The star signing of the season for Chesterfield. Outcast Fernando Llorente joins Chesterfield from Leeds. Although we lost Adebayor and Koo Ja Cheol, it was well worth it to get a player of world class potential.
    It's the first time since Rodrigo came to the club that we have had a striker of such a high calibre. He is also our first 91 at the club, so I am excited to use him in some capacity but we will see how his match fitness goes as he did play in the Cup clash for Leeds.

    West Ham United 2 Chesterfield 3

    Chesterfield put a marker down on their promotion hopes with a shock 3-2 win over Division Three leaders West Ham. When I say surprise, I really do mean it. I had to rub my eyes to see if it was real that my little Chesterfield side managed to topple the Claret and Blue of West Ham who have been at the top of the table for as long as I could remember. Good game Niall!
    A crucial brace by South Korean midfielder Koo Ja Cheol who has been an absolute surprise packet by started every game this season and has produced some of his best form in a Chesterfield shirt. His goals bookended what was to be a remarkable day, English striker Rickie Lambert got the crucial go-ahead goal while Alberto Aqualani and Tomas Rosicky got the goals for West Ham.
    An superb start to the season sees the Spireites up to second place but we need to consolidate our position from this point on.
    In regards to Adam Lallana, I have received a large amount of interest for the English starlet officially (bids) and unofficially (PMs) however I am going to take my time with all the offers and give them their due respect but I will only be selling if there is an offer to my liking but discussions are ongoing.

    Birmingham Season Preview
    Birmingham started season 11 poorly, complete opposite to what I expected to be honest. This was the worst start Birmingham have had since I took over.
    3 horrendous defeats against Norwich, QPR and Peterborough conceding a crazy 8 goals. QPR and Peterborough games are the 2 games I felt we could have grabbed 6 points before hand.
    Norwich 2 - 1 Birmingham
    Birmingham 1 - 3 QPR
    Birmingham 0 - 3 Peterborough
    Luckily we faced a trip to relegated Notts County next, no disrespect to Notts but we could have fielded a weaker side and still won. I see what they are trying to do, but in my opinion the situation there is laughable. Sitting in Div 2 and you go and sell your decent players and replace them with youth is silly. This GW is challenging enough as it is and to do such a thing is quite frankly idiotic so now I just hope for the gw's sake that the manager sticks with them because they are going to visit div 4 and stay there for a while. Should have picked up a div 4 club and done that not taken a div 2 club to sink them in such a manner.
    Notts County 0 - 3 Birmingham
    Goals from Sulejmani and Ramos in the first half set us up nicely and at half time the lads didn't even need talking to. Prib joined the action on the 75th minute and took him only 3 minutes to finished the job to make it 3 - 0!
    Next up we welcomed Hartlepool to St. Andrews. I decided to make some changes and pick the starting 11 based on performance ratings so far this season. Otamendi, Kolodziejczak, John where dropped for Reinartz, Naismith and El Kaddouri.
    10 minutes into second half, Naismith found the back of the net to put us ahead. We changed things around on the 75th minute to tighten up the back and try hold on to the win but it wasn't to be, because 2 minutes later Hartlepool equalised from a free-kick. Gutted.
    Birmingham 1 - 1 Hartlepool
    Performances have been improving a little as every game as gone by, so I'm hopping the wins start coming and we try get some consistence. Hope we can put up a decent fight at promotion as we did last season.
    ----------------
    In the next 24 hours Guedes Marcelo will be joining Birmingham in a swap deal for Coates to strengthen our defensive back up.
    Hancel Batalla a 16 year old defensive mid will be joining Birmingham from Ecuadorian side Liga De Quito for £160k. Regardless of the league, the fact is that this lad is still only 16 and has played 11 games out of 22 for a side who sit 3rd in the league.
    More transfer news to follow in the next few days!

    Division 4 Preview
    Part 1/3
    August 14th - December 24th 2014
    Season 11
    *Rankings correct after 4 games. Predictions based on form, rating and the opinion of the Stockport County manager*

    Has Craig lost the players? A starting XI average of 87 should be up there fighting for a playoff spot but yet again we see them occupying the bottom of the table. On talent alone we’ll see them climb up slowly but don’t expect too much from them. Craig cannot pick a winning formation to save his life.
    Prediction: 13th-16th

    One of the biggest shocks so far was the sudden resignation of Wycombe Manager, Fallen Angel prior to the start of the season. Unfortunately, due to personal reasons the former manager has had to leave the game so I’d just like to wish Fallen Angel all the best and hope that you’d be able to return to SM sometime in the future.
    Fortunately enough, Wycombe have found an excellent replacement manager in Jim Garvock. Despite the poor start to the season, you’d think that a starting XI average of 86 should be good enough for a mid table finish. With everyone off the transfer ban, we’ll have to wait and see what Jim decides to do with his inherited squad before making any accurate predictions.
    Prediction: 13th-16th

    Season 07: 20th (D4)
    Season 06: 19th (D3)
    Season 05: 20th (D2)
    If there was any realism in this game then Cardiff’s home attendance figures should be no more than 100 people, not 13000. In saying that though, if the season ended today then Cardiff City’s 18th place finish would be their best result over the past 7 seasons. With an 87 rated starting XI featuring the likes of LAVEZZI and MEDEL, surely they can’t be this bad again…
    Prediction: 17th-20th

    Season 10 proved to be a disruptive one for Leyton Orient, undergoing 3 manager resignations within a short period of time. With the likes of Mateo KOVACIC, Kingsley COMAN, Carlos CASEMIRO and so on, new manager Paolo Montero would no doubt be pleased with the squad he’s taken over. Despite being winless in their opening 4 matches, they have been in contention in every game but just haven’t got any luck at this stage. The manager has sold a few of the higher rated older players for youth so we probably won’t see them near the top this season, nevertheless they still possess a starting XI average of 87. There’s definitely plenty of potential here, a team to keep your eye on in the future.
    Prediction: 13th-16th

    After taking over early in Season 10, Daniel Ratcliffe has done a fantastic job, taking the team to the playoff semi finals as well as the semi finals of the English Shield. A couple of nice off season acquisitions in Bonfim MARLOS and Penial MLAPA adds a whole lot of depth. A starting XI average of 88 makes Doncaster one of the better teams in Division 4 so we can expect them to be in the mix for promotion towards the end of the season.
    Prediction: 5th-8th

    A starting XI average of just 83 will see Oldham feature around the bottom half of the table this season. Serdar Dragutinovic has gone with the youngsters and risers strategy which should no doubt boost his squad value. Whether he continues to invest in youth or look to get more competitive next season will be interesting to see.
    Prediction: 17th-20th

    Hull City narrowly missed out on automatic promotion by 1 point and subsequently got eliminated in the playoffs by surprise packets Hartlepool United. Alos Rothnie will no doubt feel hard done by, with a cruel run of injuries late in the season sidelining several big name players. Hull City will go in with a relatively unchanged squad with a starting XI average of 88. A very good team with high expectations, A playoff spot at the minimum.
    Prediction: 3rd-6th

    Plymouth Argyle pulled off a stunning escape, winning their last 2 games which ultimately resulted in the shock relegation of Burton Albion. Tony (Forum) was a long serving manager of Stockport County before deciding to ditch them for the Brewers during the midway point of the season. As a result, I predict them to come last in the division.
    Prediction: 17th-20th

    Gillingham managed to pick up a solid 2-1 win over Crewe Alexandria with goals to forward pairing Rodrigo Lima and Andy Carroll. I thought it would be an interesting experiment to put "two towers" in front of goal and see what happens and so far, it has bore fruit.
    In particular, England big man Andy Carroll impressed with a sterling performance where he contributed in every aspect of attacking play and that can only bode well for my side.
    I think a player who has emerged since my short tenure is Ghanaian midfielder/wingback Kevin Constant who has produced some of his best football since my appointment and its good to see some of the fringe players impress.
    Now I have been getting inquiries about certain players in my squad but like I said, I will decide who I can do without at the end of the season but since I am busy at the moment, I may not be able to attend to all the messages about my players.

    Season in review: Chesterfield
    Final Standing: 11th
    Overview


    A mid table finish in a tumultuous season where Chesterfield had been at both ends of the table. A bad start to the season was met by a late, late flurry of wins which culminated in the best attacking football that has been seen by the Spireites faithful in a long while. Considering that the Spireites were mired in the relegation zone for the majority of the season, the Spireites should consider a mid-table finish a success.
    The Spireites started brightly with two solid win against Rotherham United and Birmingham City however Chesterfield’s form dropped with a seven game losing streak. The losing streak was finally snapped with a resounding 2-0 win over Plymouth Argyle however the Spireites found it difficult to produce a vein of consistency and was left mired at the bottom half of the table. In contrast, Chesterfield produced their best domestic cup run in the last three seasons with a fourth round (English Shield) and third round (English Cup) finish which served as a welcome distraction.
    However Chesterfield produced when it mattered most with crucial wins against relegation candidates Leicester City, Shorpe United and Rochdale.
    A key component to their success was the Spireites defensive record, derided last season for their leaky defence; the predominately same personnel were able to become watertight and registered the third best defence in the Division after automatic promotes Manchester City and play-off chasing Coventry City.
    However the Spireites created some of their best attacking football after they secured their Division Three status with four win in their last five matches (13 from a possible 15 points) to climb to their highest position since the early part of the season.
    Most Valuable Player: Claudio Bravo




    Captain Marvel Claudio Bravo caps off remarkable season

    Matches are defined by moments and in those moments; it’s the leaders that stand tall, one such leader is Claudio Bravo. Chesterfield’s goalkeeper and Captain Claudio Bravo enjoyed a stellar season and although keepers sometimes aren’t given the credit they deserve, Bravo produced when it mattered most.
    Captain Marvel came into his own when the pressure was on, in particular in relegation six pointers against Shorpe United and Leicester City where he kept everything and anything out of his goal and was crucial in Chesterfield’s 1-0 and 2-0 wins respectively.
    Credit should be given to Bravo’s leadership in forming the third best defence in Division Three, shouting out orders, marshalling the troops and producing splendid saves. After taking over the captaincy three seasons ago, Bravo has well and truly made the captaincy his own.
    While the Chilean international is Chesterfield’s longest serving player with 274 appearances over eight seasons. It could have all been different if he settled in Blackpool but on his return to the club, he produced his career best form playing a vital part of Chesterfield gaining promotion.
    The mark of a captain is to lead by example and produce when it’s needed most; captain marvel Claudio Bravo has proven that.
    Golden Boot: Adam Lallana 9 goals (33 appearances)




    English midfielder Adam Lallana’s star has continued to rise at Chesterfield


    The meteoric rise of Adam Lallana has been a headline story at Chesterfield this season. From squad player to first team star, Lallana has shown the value of perseverance, producing his ever best season for the Spireites with nine goals and four assists, winning the Golden Boot in the process. Lallana is the first midfielder to win the prestigious Golden Boot since Russian maestro Dmitri Torbinsky who is still the only player in Chesterfield history to win the most valuable player in two consecutive seasons and the Golden Boot and most valuable player honours in the same season.
    Since his arrival from Walsall for $3.8 million, he has steadily grown into his role as a first team selection but this season, Lallana has exploded displaying an excellent first touch, superb movement and mesmeric dribbling ability. The English midfielder has been a constant menace for opposing defences; in particular his performances against Rotherham United and Birmingham City where he scored two valuable braces in consecutive matches however it was his decisive goal in the 88th minute against Gillingham which ensured a surprise 1-0 victory that will live long in the memory.
    However manager Glory Days expects that with added confidence, the best may still be yet to come. “Adam is a confident player but the difference now is that he knows he belongs and he will be itching to prove to others that he is a world class player, which can only bode well for Chesterfield.”
    Leading Assists: Rickie Lambert 8 assists (20 appearances)




    English striker Rickie Lambert has shown an eye for a pass

    “Bargain or bust” were the fan’s sentiments upon the unveiling of English striker Rickie Lambert for $6 million from Preston North End, derided for superficial aspects he couldn’t control such as age and transfer fee, Lambert demonstrated that he’s wasn’t a prototypical English striker.
    Lambert’s game isn’t dependant on the predictable long ball to the big man rather it’s based on diversity. He is capable of interplaying with the midfielders and holding up the ball to allow the onrushing midfielders to attack the goal.
    Blessed with strength, solid heading ability and good finishing, it was Lambert’s other aspects which make him underappreciated like his intelligent runs, great passing ability and vision to pick out a pass.
    Lambert, 32 made the best possible start to his Spireites career with three assists in a crucial relegation six pointer against Leicester City. The English striker had a hand in every Spireites goal and provided a best on ground performance next to man of the match Leon Britton.
    A striker that isn’t always about the goals, Lambert has proven that he doesn’t only a score goals but also is a provider of chances with eight assists.
    Lambert has shown that despite his injury ridden start, there is more to come and that the Spireites may have picked up an absolute bargain for the 32 year old striker.
    Fan's Favourite: Mikel San Jose (33 appearances)




    Spanish Defender Mikel San Jose has completely turned around last season’s performances

    Last season you wouldn’t have associated a solid defence with Chesterfield with their poor defensive record almost costing the Spireites their Division Three status with 12 goals conceded in the last four matches however there has been complete turnaround with Chesterfield registering the third best defensive record in Division Three behind automatic promotion side Manchester City and play-off candidate Coventry City with largely the same squad.
    A key to their dramatic change in form is Spanish central defender Mikel San Jose. Criticised last season for a lack of effort and being too slow to the ball, San Jose came into the new season with an air of desire. What he lacked in pace, he made up with great positioning, strong heading ability and inch perfect tackling. Many fans screamed for San Jose to be dropped for the first team but now he’s one of the first names on the team sheet.
    However playing as a centre back, the success of defensive unit is dependent on the central defensive partnership and while San Jose has played to good effect with Argentine defender Marcos Rojo forming a formidable defensive unit, the Spaniard has been able to adapt with different partners (Kevin Vogt and Havard Nordtveit) and still maintain a solid defensive core.
    One aspect of San Jose that may be overlooked is his penalty taking which he hasn’t missed one spot kick in the last two seasons, providing three important goals to help the Spireites cause.
    Surprise Packet: Kevin Vogt (18 appearances)


    Kevin Vogt’s versatility has been crucial to his rise in the Chesterfield ranks


    Tipped as one of the young brigade ready for breakout season, Kevin Vogt has done just that. Providing the Chesterfield faithful with a glimpse of what he could potentially offer in the future but with one marked difference: consistency. Since joining Chesterfield from Augsburg, the 23 year old initially struggled for consistent performances but Vogt has now developed into a solid contributor which Manager Glory Days is happy to put his faith in.
    Due to injuries in the first team, Vogt’s versatility has allowed him to plug numerous holes in the Chesterfield first XI. While predominately playing in the centre of defence, he managed to form a strong defensive partnership with Spanish centre back Mikel San Jose but his most resounding performance came when he was moved to right back for the injured Hiroki Sakai. Although the Spireites lost to a dominant Northampton Town 2-1, Vogt was the Chesterfield’s stand out player, even managing to grab a goal.
    The future looks bright for a player that many fans didn't expect much from but if his performances this season are any indication, he will be featuring regularly in the upcoming season.

    Another excellent win by the Dons, coming back from 1-0 down to win 2-1 with goals to Colback and Cardozo. The Dons charge to play-off promotion spots continues but we will be without defensive stalwart Joesph Yobo who picked up a minor injury and will be out for a week.
    Our great run in the league continues with our 12th unbeaten match and Glory Days is breaking new ground at Doncaster. It's certainly a turn around from two losses that I had at the start of my tenor here.
