89: Record Setting

3 October 2022
Anderlecht, Belgium

Mr BadDragon can breathe a sigh of relief as his team is hanging in there despite his best efforts to throw things away. I predict that the cracks are not far from the surface and we will see the experiment revealed for the folly that it is. I have always thought that the hype has hidden the lack of ability that BadDragon really possesses.

That boy needs some special treatment out behind the bike sheds and left in a groaning pile. Oh well, it takes all kinds. Sit back and enjoy the program.

Blow by Blow

Confidis Cup 6th Round

S01-104

We are taking on Derde Klasse A side KAS Eupen in our first match in the Confidis Cup. Time for some fringe players to get some minutes.

S01-105

We have taken a big risk with a very inexperienced defence selected, however we have still kept a solid midfield and our two top strikers who need game time to work on their combination.

S01-106

If I wanted to give “Mookee” some confidence then you cant go past scoring five goals as a way of doing that. He started tow fit in well and looked the part against a sub par Eupen side.

Record Setting

S01-108

9-1 thumpings tend to break records. No surprises here.

S01-109

Five goals in a game also tends to have the same effect.

Jupiler Pro League – Match 7/30

S01-110

Back to the league against Sporting Lokeren. We need to carry on with our good run of form.

S01-111

They line up against us in a very defensive allignment. I field a good side with “Doctor”, “C.K.”, and “Alex” across the midfield.

S01-112

A good performance. We battered them, but struggled to put away our chances. 0-0 at the half, and I told the boys I was not impressed. That fired them up and we bagged three in the second.

S01-113

Confidis Cup 7th Round Draw

S01-114

The draw is out for the 7th Round and we get Leuven.

S01-115

Champions League – Group C- Match 2/6

S01-116

The big one! Sampdoria is a big step up and a team we will struggle to beat. A draw will be a win in this match.

S01-118

We are second favorite, but were the same against Wolfsburg as well. Time to battle!

S01-117

Pretty much my top side. I am considering switching up to the 4-3-3 formation as the match progresses.

S01-119

We got the result we wanted, although I feel it was perhaps dropped points. We had the better chances, however I will take a point.

S01-120

Jupiler Pro League – Match 8/30

S01-121

The pundits are predicting an easy game. I am never confident when they do that. I have some tired bodies so will have to change things up.

S01-122

Same back five, but some changes up front. Mookie is struggling for consistency which is a concern.

S01-123

We were ugly today, but I’d rather win ugly than lose pretty! “Mookie” got his first league goal which was important, and we get the three points.

S01-124

Injury News

S01-125

“Munster” is out for the rest of this year. Luckily “Petit” is close to resuming training, however we are short quality in the AM(C) position.

Staff Signing

S01-126

“Sid” and “Polo” come in as technical coaches as I look to improve my coaching set-up.

S01-127

Results Summary

S01-129

Another good period for us. The highlight being the draw away at  Sampdoria, with the 9-1 cup win an honourable mention.

League Table

S01-128

Second by a point with a game in hand. The top four look like starting to open a wee gap.

Champions League Group C

S01-142

We sit on top of Group C with a creditable four points. I am both surprised and pleased by this turn of events.

Next Episode

S01-130

The next episode offers a series of games we should win. There is also the tantalising game against Lokomotiv Moskou and the return of fan favourite “G.C.”
