Liverpool 3-1 West Ham United
Goal Scorer: Skrtel (OG)
- Mohamed Diame
For our first game of the season we came away from Liverpool with a 3-1 loss. For the most part of the game they dominated us in every area on the pitch, we couldn't get anything going and fair play to Liverpool for playing the game the way they did. I am disappointed, obviously but there is a lot of football still left to be played. I hope we can forget about this game and move on so we can focus on the next game!
West Ham United 6-4 Manchester United
Goal Scorers: Batshuayi (X3) Nocerino (X1) Nolan (X1)
- Michy Batshuayi
Well, well, well. I didn't see this result coming but we played fantastic, to take the game to Manchester United and score six past them is amazing. Yes, we did concede four ourselves but we were the ones that came away with the three points and the end of the game. I can't praise the players enough, they attacked United straight from the off and took the game to them. They listened to what I said after the Liverpool match and were excellent in training and I'm so happy for them that it come off in the game! Bravo lads!
Gillingham 3-2 West Ham United
Goal Scorers: Batshuayi (X1) C Cole (X1)
- Mohamed Diame
There is not much that I can really say about this game apart from that it was my fault why we lost the game. I wasn't really that bothered about the game, so I put more a second team out rather than my starting eleven I thought the eleven I did put out were good enough to win the game though. I shouldn't have done this, and should have put a stronger team out, like I said though, I wasn't too bothered about the game and I would rather focus on the league and trying to push up into the Champions League qualification spots!
Premier League Table!
As you can see below, after two games we are sitting nicely in 10th. After having to play Liverpool and Manchester United for the first two games, I am very happy with where we are. There is still a lot of football to play, and I'm very confident that we will be moving up the league in no time!
