||Keith Andrews -
The international break allowed him to get up to
speed and since then he was been superb,
particularly in the Liam Bridcutt holding role in
those draws at Reading and QPR. Looks like the best
purchase of the summer at the moment.
||Will Buckley -
Back in his best position out on the right at
home to Bolton, he tore the Trotters apart including
netting himself to get off the mark for the season.
A vital contribution given the lack of Leonardo
||Inigo Calderon -
The fact that Bruno had to be shoehorned into
midfield on his return shows how well he has been
playing. Even got onto the scoresheet with a goal in
the demolition of Bolton.
||Gordon Greer -
The captain was at the heart of those two clean
sheets against Reading and QPR. Has had his doubters
this season but performances like that will quickly
||Rohan Ince -
Returned to the side with Keith Andrews ineligible
to play against his parent club Bolton and wasted no
time in reminding everyone what a talent he could
become with another man-of-the-match showing.
||Tomasz Kuszczak -
Had a bit of a dodgy August by his own high
standards but he was excellent at QPR pulling off a
number of key saves and extremely solid at Reading.
Without him, those were points that probably would
not be on the board right now.
||Kazenga LuaLua -
Oscar seems to appreciate LuaLua's talents far more
than his predecessor did with him having a solid
game in a rare away start at Reading and completely
tearing Bolton apart.
||Matt Upson -
Another month, another nomination for Matt Upson.
It's no secret Harry Redknapp was interested in him
in the summer and he must have been ruing missing
out on the former England defender after his
performance at Loftus Road.
Stephen Ward - The defence just continues to
improve and improve since his arrival on loan from
Wolves with left back from the problem position it
was at the start of the campaign. Another good four
