As all of the matches for September are over, I though it is a perfect time to give out our DST Monthly Awards for the Barclays Premier League. Unlike the actual award we aren't biased and we hit the hard hitting truths and facts. This month will have four awards to give out. So without further adieu, let's get into it!
Manager Of The Month
There were many people deserving of this award especially Pep Guardiola, Arsène Wenger and Mauricio Pochettino but there was one man who impressed me even more. This managers team was tipped for a relegation battle but now sits in seventh place with 10 points this month, and that man is (I can't fucking believe I am about to stay this) Alan Pardew of Crystal Palace.
Like most people, I think Pardew is a shit manager, but you can't take away his great month with Crystal Palace. He hasn't lost one match, had 10 points and even had some massive victories like 4-1 against Stoke and their victory last week as they came back from 2-0 down to beat Sunderland 3-2. Honestly, Pardew, celebrate this because will be probably the last award you ever win.
The Resurrection Award
This is one of our newest awards where we pick the player who many thought that hope for this player was lost then suddenly came back from the dead and became a quality player for their team. I always try to make nominees but there only is one man for this award and it's Son Heung-min from Tottenham Hotspur!
Son has had an incredible month where he has scored five goals, had one assist, three Man of the Match Awards and an average rating of 8.3 (In all competitions). Also, if you only count Premier League games, his average match rating is 9.1 out of 10 which is amazing. Ever since Harry Kane has gone down, Son has stepped up and has been Tottenham's main man. For all of you Fantasy Premier League players get him in your team NOW.
Fuck Stoke City. Flat out; they have so much talent, and they still suck. If you follow the blog you know I said I was never betting on them again after another disappointing result for the Potters (and my parlay more importantly). They have been so bad I made an award just for them. For now on this award will be named the "Mark Hughes Get Me Out Of This Club Award". So, Mark, you will most likely be sacked or relegated if things don't turn around but hey, at least you got an award.
Player Of The Month
Nominees: Alexis Sánchez, Kevin De Bruyne and Son Heung-min.
All of these players have been amazing but one has just been a little bit better, and that player is Kevin De Bruyne of Manchester City.
Kevin De Bruyne had an 8.98 average match rating in the Premier League this month and is the key reason why Manchester City have won all of their matches this season (In the Premier League). In the Manchester Derby, we saw exactly why he is the best Central Attacking Midfielder in the League (Yeah I know what I said, suck it Ozil) as he single handedly beat Manchester United without the best striker in the Premier League (Sergio Agüero). Thankfully for a Tottenham fan, he won't be playing us this weekend because he is one of the most if not THE most dangerous player in England right now.
