October 2015 Player
of the Month - Solly March (18.38% of the vote)
This was one of the
closest polls we have ever run for Player of the
Month which just goes to show how every player at
the Albion is currently pulling their weight. With
just 6% of the vote separating the top five, it was
Solly March who came out on top by the smallest of
margins to take the October award. The young winger
put in some of his best performances in nearly two
years which culminated in a vital goal in the
victory away at Leeds as he finally nailed down a
regular place, only not starting against Preston
when needless to say his creativity was sorely
missed in a 0-0 draw.
Played 4 (3 starts). Scored 1.
Second: Bobby Zamora (17.65% of the vote)
He may not have started the game, but two match
winning goals in the last ten minutes away at Leeds
and against Bristol City highlighted just what the
Albion legend can bring to the table. Two points
turned into six could well prove to be the
difference come the end of the campaign.
Third: David Stockdale (17.65% of the vote)
Had a bit of a wobble away at Reading but that was
the first mistake of an otherwise excellent season.
He made point saving saves in every game throughout
October and is one of the main reasons behind the
Albion having survived three months without a league
|| Gaetan Bong -
Picked up an injury against Preston which will keep
him out of action for three months but prior to that
it was another excellent month from the left back
whose presence will be sorely missed.
- The darling of the match day sponsors at The
Amex picked up another handful of man-of-the-match
awards for his performances through October. How he
hasn't won a Player of the Month yet we don't know -
is October when that run will change?
After the debacle of the summers longest running
transfer saga, the defender has reclaimed his place
in the side usurping both Gordon Greer and the BFG
as arguably Chris Hughton's first choice defender
with a string of fine performances.
Was dropped at the start of the month but after
replacing Gordon Greer before half time at The Leeds
United he hasn't looked back. No nonsense defending
as he continues to put his body on the line for the
The Israeli midfielder missed his first game of the
season when suspended against Preston and boy did it
show as the Albion failed to create a meaningful
effort on goal all game. Continues to be the
classiest player at the Amex.
This was a breakthrough month for the England Under
21 winger as, back to full fitness, he reclaimed a
regular place in the side and got himself back on
the goal trail with a fine goal away at The Leeds
Just like Kayal, he missed the Preston game as the
Albion toiled throughout the 90 minutes. Last months
winner continued where he had left off by scoring in
the home draw with Cardiff.
Without a doubt the most improved player so far this
season, he had another points winning month with at
least one superb save in every game. Looked
devestated when at fault for the Reading equaliser
in the draw at the Madjeski.
He may not have started a game all month but his
contribution cannot be in doubt - two late winners
against The Leeds United and Bristol City show he
may be getting on but he still knows where the back
of the net is.
