Real choices for Player of the Month for November!

For me, at least, the award has to go to Gjanni Alioski. Scored four goals in a row, was vital in big wins against Middlesbrough and Barnsely FC. And while Samu Saiz might have a case, honestly you could just give him the award every time and you wouldn’t be wrong.

Alioski scored some big goals, even if some of them were in losses for the team. I’d give it to him.

Let’s see some links then, yes?
