For Crystal Palace fans, few could have anticipated a worse scenario following their first two months of the 2017/18 season.
The Eagles have lost all seven Premier League games, sacked boss Frank de Boer and failed to register a single league goal, a record that has written their name in the history books for all the wrong reasons.
With almost nothing to cheer about after the worst start ever to a Premier League season, it's fortunate that online fanzine Five Year Plan have been able to see the funny side and perhaps put a smile back on the faces of dejected Palace fans.
After a barren month, the fans put together a goal of the month video for September, with the chase for the coveted prize of goal of the month looking sure to be a close run contest...
