So with the last Serie A games of September played, it gives us chance to assess the performance of the players over the first month. Here their average rating is used to rank them over this six game period, culminating in the first "Player of the Month" award.
The squad seems to have gelled well, all the new additions have made valuable contributions, and the veterans haven't disappointed either. Some surprising results such as the draws with Livorno and Bologna are tempered by two huge victories in the capital, over Roma and Lazio.
Coach Ferrara seems to have started well too, dealing with both a busy schedule and a number of injuries. As the month ends he seems to be getting all his squad fit, which will present the challenge of keeping them all happy.
On to the rankings then, which are sure to cause debate. I hope you enjoy the show!
