115: Anderlecht Complete Treble

25 May 2024
Anderlecht, Belgium

Mr BadDragon’s Anderlecht side continued their march to dominance with an impressive victory in the Cofidis Cup Final. The Paars-wit faithful were treated to some spectacular goals as “Trickles” did the unthinkable and scored a hat-trick of direct free kicks.

The question on everyone’s lips is whether Mr BadDragon is going to be returning as Andetlecht Manager next season. Mr BadDragon has won every competition available  domestically and has shown a willingness to jump ship in in search of new challenges over recent seasons.

Mission accomplished. We won the the Cofidis Cup final which eluded us last season, and my work is done in Belgium. Or is it? I am giving serious thoughts to A.C.Milan, however I would like to make the Champions League Semi Final. I have not yet decided what I want to do.

Blow by Blow

Cofidis Cup Final

S02-392

This is the big game! I want to win the cup and cross off all titles in my time with Anderlecht.

S02-393

Same line-up as the last two matches. We are going for the win here!

S02-394

We did what we needed to in rather strange fashion. “Trickles” bagged a hat-trick of direct free kicks, something I have not seen before.

A goal is a goal, and three are better than one! And a win is a win!

Injury Update

S02-396

“Lembi” is out for the last week of the season and probably the first few weeks of next season.

Jupiler Pro League – Champions Group – Match 8/10

S02-397

The wheels fell off the Genk wagon following our win last time out. A win here would rub their faces in it somewhat.

S02-398

From here on out I will be looking at giving my fittest players the start.

S02-399

A disappointing result. Our two front men turned in easily their worst games for the season as we failed to make any chances pay.

S02-400

Jupiler Pro League – Champions Group – Match 9/10

S02-401

Next up are Charleroi, another team which has caused us some grief this season.

S02-402

“Ziz” and “Turns” are set to make their debuts while “Vert” is on the bench.

S02-403

We looked solid enough and ran out comfortable 3-0 victors. One more game to play this season!

S02-404

Injury Update

S02-405

Hugely disappointed to lose “Alex” to a crude tackle in what was scheduled to be his last game for the season.

Jupiler Pro League – Champions Group – Match 10/10

S02-406

Final match of the season and we want to go out with a win.

S02-407

Another rotated squad to keep the side fresh.  “Vert” is given his first start for the club.

S02-408

“Rommel” scores his first goal of the season in the last game of the season. In fact he scores two!

End of season Summary

S02-410

Can’t fault that report. It is always good to keep ones employer happy.

Job Interview

S02-411

Another Interview. Once again not the club I want to go to so I did my best to not be liked.

S02-416

Bayer Leverkusen came to chat with me, however they wanted a set pieces first approach so I doubt I will get the job.

Champions League Final

S02-417

Chelsea made all the play but Porto scored more goals! In the end they were able to hang on for the win, and the Title!

Results Summary

S02-412

We did what we had to, and won both the Cofidis Cup as well as remaining undefeated in the league.

First Team Stats

S02-415

Here are stats of all of the regular first team players. Top goal scorer was “Benny Jets” with 33. Top assists “Westie” with 22.

Things were quite a bit tighter at the top this season.

In the end the win was rather comfortable.

I have two solid offers on the table and some serious decisions to make.
