102: Anderlecht smash Benfica

20 September 2023
Anderlecht, Belgium

Mr BadDragon continues to impress as his Anderlecht team continues to sweap all before them. There are some who believe that he has simply taken a great team and got them playing well. I think that we will see there is more to this than that, and I predict that he will take this team to new levels in the next few seasons.

What can I say? We have finally started stringing good results together on the back of “Benny Jets” goals. He is the difference between winning and not winning. There is no secret formular here. If you find a guy who can finish, and build a team based upon getting hime in scoring positions the game is that much easier.

Blow by Blow

Jupiler Pro League – Match 4/30


Gent have been under-performing this season and are languishing in 15th place. No time like the present to strike.


“Nemby” is getting some minutes as is “Rommel”.


The worrying facet is that if “Benny Jets” doesn’t score, we don’t score.  Something that needs addressing.


Champions League Draw


We have a reasonably tough draw with both Benfica and Real Madrid in our group. Our first opponents will be Benfica.

Jupiler Pro League – Match 5/30


Next match sees us on the road to 12th placed Lierse. A win here would see us extend the lead at the top to five points.


We try to see whether we can score goals without “Benny Jets” on the park. “Xu” also gets a start while the rest of the team is first choice players.


Well that was a beating. We struggled to create much in the first half before we slammed four in the second period for a comfortable win.


Team News


We have been playing really well lately. This reinforces how well.


Keeping clean sheets makes your task easier.

Jupiler Pro League – Match 6/30


Lommel should not be a challenge for us so I will be resting a few key players ahead of the Champions League game.


Well we are fielding a ‘B’ team today. Ok, so there is one ‘A’ player and a ‘C’ player but whose counting.


Four zip with the ‘B’ team. I’m happy.


Champions League – Group D – Match 1/6


This is where the rubber meets the road. Champions League is here again.


One change to my best line-up sees “Mookee” getting a chance up top. “Xu” makes the bench.


Well this was a hammering. Totally unexpected. Five goals to five different scorers. Three goals in six minutes put the game to bed.

Trickles scored a superb goal. Take a look and see what you think!


Injury Update


“Andre” is out for three weeks which is not ideal, however we have good cover in the form of “Flavio”

Champions League Results


Big results in the first matches.  Dortmund went down to Monaco, Real Madrid went down to Dynamo Kyiv, and PSG went down to Lokomotiv Moskou.


Bayern dropped a game to Porto while Chelsea slaughtered Athletico Madrid. Manchester City were made to work for their win.

Results Summary


Fifteen goals scored for one conceded of which the four goal thumping of Benfica was the highlight.

League Table


Four points clear at the top with a game in hand.
