120: The Machine Grinds On

31 October 2024
Anderlecht, Belgium

The Machine that is Anderlecht continues to drive relentlessly on crushing all before it. Mr BadDragon has his side playing effective, if sometimes not all that pretty football.

At this level, it is results that matter, not aesthetics.

I dispute the claim that we are playing dull football. We are creating chances, we are just not always able to put them away.

Blow by Blow

Injury Update


“C.K.” picked up a small knock. There is enough time before the Champions League match that he should be fit.

Jupiler Pro League – Match 10/30


Charleroi have been a bit of a thorn in my side. I won’t be taking them lightly.


A number of players have come back tired after the international break, so I have selected the side based on fitness.


Once again Charleroi proved to be a tough nut to crack. In the end we got there, but only just.


Injury Update


“S.V.H” has been making good progress in his switch from right back to centre back. The Injury setback is not too bad, but annoying.

Champions League – Group A – Match 3/6


Juventus come to town and should offer us a tough challenge.


Full strength side selected with “Rommel” retaining his place. “Carlier” replaces “Xu” on the bench.


Juventus made us work hard for the win. In the end it was one moment of brilliance by “Mookee” that separated the sides.


Champions League Results


Bayern thumped Chelsea, while Porto squeezed past Manchester City. Lokomotiv upstaged Milan, and Shalke bagged a late winner against 10 man Barcelona.


Galatasaray did enough to move into 3rd place in group A. Dortmund did enough to beat Real Madrid, while Manchester United made hard work of their match against Dynamo Kyiv.

Jupiler Pro League – Match 11/30



Next up we are off to visit Sint-Truiden in a match we should be winning.


Once again we have a fully rotated side, with “James” getting a rare start this season due to the injury to “S.V.H.”.


Another solid win for the boys. We made hard work of it at times but got the result.


Jupiler Pro League – Match 12/30


We face Brussels next. The newly promoted side look destined for the drop and this should allow us some leeway.


We come out with a near full strength side in what could wind up being a big victory.


As predicted it was lambs to the slaughter. A fine hat-trick to “Mookee” was a particular highlight.


Results Summary


Four games for four wins. However three were by the lone goal so it has not been plain sailing.

League Table


The last match padded our goal difference. Genk dropped another match to allow us to open a gap at the to[.
