TT PLAYER OF THE MONTH
Dom Roman – @DomRoman
Two wins, two losses and one crazy draw, September has been typically eventful. There’s been more than a little inconsistency amongst the squad, but also enough ‘Gary Time’ to hint that United can still be contenders. Onwards to the TT Player of the Month for September…
1 – ARMANI LITTLE – POTM
MOTM – Maidenhead (a), Grimsby (h)
Enigmatic? Scapegoat for losses? Midfield maestro? Injury prone? Inconsistent? Key man? Game changer? Luxury player? Armani Little is a player who is discussed and debated more than any other at Plainmoor. I think my main issue regarding Armani is not his fault, and that’s where he fits best in this Torquay United team so that it A) Keeps its balance…and B) Wins games? It’s a question that Gary Johnson has not quite answered yet, but the main thing is he believes in the talented midfielder and doubters should bear that in mind when questioning his selection. If we trust in GJ, then we should also trust in his starting line-ups. Anyway, during September Armani’s stats were impressive: 4 goals and 3 assists in games versus Maidenhead, Grimsby and Chesterfield, and also two coveted TT man of the match awards for his efforts. What we must do is encourage him to motor forward and support the strikers rather than get bogged down in defensive duties, hopefully then consistency and more valuable goals will follow. Well done Armani!
