117: Relentless Andnerlecht

6 August 2024
Anderlecht, Belgium

Hi there, FM Followers. My name is Toodee Timmee and I am bringing you news updates from FM’s newest channel Bengal FM Digital.

In todays episode we showcase the Anderlecht side managed by Mr BadDragon. This team is proving to be of almost monolithic proportions and sweeping all before them this season.

The one disappointment for the side is they lack the mental toughness to progress beyond the Quarter Finals of the Champions League. Can Mr BadDragon slay this beast and elevate the side to a whole new level this season.

~Toodee Timmee, Bengal FM Digital

That sums up my objectives this season, and explains why I turned down the A.C.Milan job. It’s not that the step up was too vast, but rather that I have unfinished business here with Anderlecht.

So sit back and enjoy the first episode of the 2024/25 season!

Blow by Blow

Jupiler Pro League – Match 1/30

S03-021

We open the season against Standard de Liege. I am looking for us to open with a good result.

S03-022

Same side as last time. “Alex” is back in training but low in fitness.

S03-023

We went 1-0 down and then turned things around in spectacular fashion. A hat-trick to “Benny Jets” sees him off to another strong start to the season.

S03-024

Jupiler Pro League – Match 2/30

S03-025

Leuven is next up. It is important to build the momentum this season.

S03-026

Already the pecking order is altering with “James” slipping down the order to be replaced by “Rommel”, with “Karioke” on the bench  “Alex” is back on the bench as well.

S03-027

A double by “Mookee”, plus goals for “Trickles”, “Doctor” and “Westie” saw us demolish Leuven comfortably.

S03-028

Team News

S03-029

This boy is developing nicely, and with the fall down the pecking order of “James”, “Karioke” is competing with “James” for number three CB.

Jupiler Pro League – Match 3/30

S03-030

The big game of the season early on. We need to win this to show our intentions.

S03-031

“Rommel” retains his position in the side while “Alex” makes his first start for the season. “Karioke” is on the bench.

S03-033

We laid down a marker in the quest for a third title when we beat Genk 1-0. It wasn’t a vintage display by the boys, but sometimes you have to win hard.

S03-034

Injury Update

S03-035

We have suffered the indignity of a broken “Cup”. Ok, so maybe only slightly cracked!

Transfer News

S03-036

“Sado” was never going to feature as a first team player, and with him wanting playing time it was the right time to move him out.

Team News

S03-037

“Karioke” puts pen to paper on a new deal. Still a bargain at 7.25K pre week.

Jupiler Pro League – Match 4/30

S03-038

Kortrijk have not beaten us for almost seven years. I am not feeling benevolent and see no reason to let them win today.

S03-039

“Karioke” gets his first start for the club, and “Flavio” gets a start at leftback. We also feature a fully rotated front three. “S.V.H.” is on the bench as backup central defender.

S03-040

“Xu” had been demanding first team game time, and when I let him on the pitch he bags a double! Having three strikers banging in goals is a good problem to have.

S03-041

Results Summary

S03-042

Four from four with only one goal conceded. Almost  the prefect start to the season.

League Table

S03-044

One of only two undefeated sides in the league.

Next Episode

S03-043

Battle of the undefeated teams plus the opening Champions League group match. The draw will be in next episode as well.
