Liverpool 2 Aston Villa 1

Liverpool continued their mini-resurgence post the Man Utd encounter with a solid performance against previously unbeaten Aston Villa. Niko Krancjar gave the Reds the early lead while deadball specialist Albin Ekdal doubled our lead through a free kick but Marcelo replied and made it a nervous final 8 minutes of the game.

Kudos must be given to starlet Albin Ekdal who was not only the surprise packet of last season but the most valuable player in the Liverpool team so far!! He has 7 goals in 7 games and he has looked threatening every time there has been a dead ball situation. It's a testament to a player who is keeping the likes of Felliani and Miereles on the bench while he is carving up defenses.

Unfortunately we picked up two injuries with Kana Biyik out for 3 weeks while Zabaleta picked up a minor knock a will probably be out for the next 1-2 matches.

Next up is a local rivalry match against my mate Notts Forest, which will be interesting since he does have the wood on us but I am hoping to change that!

Rotherham United 4-4 Sheffield Wednesday

A severely disappointing result for the Millers. Several better players and superior stats all over the place would have you believe that Rotherham would win 4-1 or 4-0. Instead, a 1-0 lead became a 3-1 deficit and a 4-3 deficit before a late Yarmolenko goal would tie it at 4. A 7th point from a 7th game actually managed to move Rotherham up to 12th place, just shy of the top half of the table. The 4 goals also were huge for improving Rotherham's scoring tally throughout the season.

Regardless, Rotherham continue to look at the future. The difficulty Rotherham have had scoring this season has led to talk of them making a move for highly coveted Lavezzi. The only team currently bidding for his services outside the richer clubs of the premier league is Norwich, down in Division 3. Rotherham certainly don't have the money to bring in such a high quality player, but manager G'Les'P has proved to be a master at swapping players to Rotherham's benefit. Only time will tell, though.

Next up is unmanaged Birmingham City, currently sitting in 17th place. Rotherham certainly have the higher quality side, but it should be interesting to see if they can get the monkey off their back and walk away with the full 3 points that they so desperately need to start making a push towards promotion rather than staving off relegation.

Anyway, lost 3-0 in the Shield to Doncaster using the exact same tactics as them. Disappointed to lose against a weaker side who are also managerless.

Loïc RÉMY has completed his move to Sheffield United from Derby County for £2,210,000 plus Demba BA

Rotherham United 5-1 Birmingham City 10k fans at the New York Stadium (25k)

Rotherham had an average crowd at home as they made a statement to all division 2 teams that they are definitely committed to competing this season. Plagued by consistent draws, Rotherham picked up just their second win in dominant fashion. After putting 4 in the back of the net in the first half, Birmingham got a reprieve from an even greater defeat when central defender Bruno Ecuele Manga was sent off, leaving only 2 at the back end of Rotherham's defense. Birmingham took advantage and quickly put themselves on the score sheet. However, Danny Welbeck quickly returned the favor, netting a brace for himself in the process just one minute after Birmingham scored their only goal.

All in all, Rotherham moved up to 10th in the table and put their goal difference on the right side of 0. Next up is Stockport County, currently floundering in last place with just 5 points from 8 games. Rotherham will be heavily favored, and a win as well as some helpful results could propel them straight into the playoff picture. Though it may be too early in the season to speak about such things, it is better to get into the picture early rather than late. A target on your back is certainly better than a target you can't quite reach.

Remy for cash plus ba? 2 part deal I hope or that's absolutely rubbish!

Preston earn draw 5 in 8 games with a nil all at west ham. Once again we had the better of it but ter stegen was huge in goal for the hammers. Unnerstall was not completely bored though saving a few aswell from Ye home side.

Alba got his +2 while Abidal dropped to 91.

Jorge Koke also got a +2 to 88 which makes him a useful backup.

Good deal for Derby with Ba' date=' I would rate him over Remy any day.[/quote']

Agreed, you meant to do it so all food thought worth a mention cause in my opinion you got a bad deal.

Preston draw numbr 6 of 9 now, this time to a 10 man reigning premiership side. Utd looked the better first half before a pique red card, it was all Preston second half, palacio making the leaders tremble before ronaldo finally got a late reward for consistent effort.

Another draw from a winning position and I feel e are starting to throw our season already

The win marked one of the first games captain and long standing number 1, Mark Schwarzer was forced to sit on the bench. He has so far played 234 games for the club. Before the Portsmouth game, the only games he had sat on the bench were the last game of the season in seasons 7 and 9. He has also scored 13 goals.

In his place, Thiago Silva took the armband which was seen as a surprise as many expected Steven Gerrard to captain the side.

The arrangement is set to continue in the next game.

Eh? Im Everton. Just casting my own judgement :P

A brace from Llorente against his old club gives Everton a comfortable 2-0 win at Middlesbrough :)

Liverpool 1 Stoke City 1

In what was a battle between the established Stoke vs. the new boys Liverpool, Stoke denied the Reds an opportunity to get maximum points in a "smash and grab" performance.

Reds defended soundly and captain Reina was on song until the 88th minute where Khacheridi equalised in the dying stages. Fans on Merseyside would be left speechless as the Potters grabbed an unlikely point. Krancjar gave Liverpool the lead but it was all for nothing as Stoke leveled scores.

Surprised at our side's early run of good form which sees us in an unlikely 4th place, unfortunately Cambiasso got a straight red and Merieles picked up another knock which may see us test the depth of our midfield resources.

Took my team to a trip to the woods and we fared quite badly as a result, losing to fellow promoted teams in back to back contests. But things are looking up now, as Callejon marks his rise to 89 by scoring against Tottenham, continuing our recent good run against elite teams.

Re: EC2933 Discussion Thread- VACANCIES SO JOIN THE FUN

It was a fair swap due to me rating Ba Higher than Remy.......and Dracolis rating Remy higher then Ba.

so we both got what we wanted from the deal ;)

Fair enough then but in that case Gary damn u cleaned up, I thin that's an excellent deal for you.

Sorry darlo I know who ta are ya mug I just fail at quoting the correct posts :)
