Anderlecht did what was needed to qualify top of Group A. Mr BadDragon’s charges have been progressing well and will be hoping to get past the quarter final stage this season.

We have done well despite a few issues with injuries today. The young players they have called up have played their parts well.
Blow by Blow
“Ziz” has picked up a knock which will keep him out for a game or two.
Champions League – Group A – Match 5/6
If we win this game, then we are guaranteed to finish top of the group.
“Mookee” is of on international duty, while “Trickles” is suspended for getting yellow cards. “Doctor” and “Baby Face” come in.
We were not convincing, and struggled to hold onto the ball. However we managed to catch them on the break three times and that proved decisive.
Champions League Scores
Porto hammered Lokomotiv banging seven past them. Manchester City hit back against Milan. Chelsea and Bayern both secured passage.
Manchester United have almost done enough to join Lazio. Dortmund and Real Madrid are through, as are PSG and CSKA Moskou.
“Cup” is out for two weeks following a physical encounter.
The injury to ‘Baby Face” is more frustrating with “Mookee” away on international duty. “King Louis” and youngster “Vert” are brought up as cover.
Young “Vert” is a player I have high hopes for. Still a couple of years away from serious first team contention.
Jupiler Pro League – Match 15/30
Standard Liege play the role of hosts to us today. They are sitting in 3rd place, and we may struggle today.
The team has a real makeshift look about it, especially up front. We are also light on the subs bench as we have to rest tired legs.
We went behind early and showed character to come back to record a good win.
Young Barb has been with the side since I took over. He has been down the pecking order but got his chance today.
Champions League – Group A – Match 6/6
Olympiakos come to play knowing that they have a chance to lock up third place with a win.
“Xu” comes in up top and “Karioke” in for the injured “Cup”.
We did what was required and got the win. “Barb” got some minutes and scored his first goal for the club.
Champions League Scores
No real surprises here.
Milan did well to beat high flying Porto, while Chelsea left some points on the table.
A quick look at young “Barb”. I have kicked in the contract extension since the snapshot was taken as he is looking good to keep around.
Jupiler Pro League – Match 16/30
Leuven are on the edge of the relegation zone and it falls upon us to keep them there. We can not afford to take the foot off the gas.
We field a strong line-up.
We got the result we were looking for and preserved our place at the top of the table.
Four games and four wins.
Once again we have opened a good gap on the rest of the field.
Champions League Groups
Manchester City managed to get up ahead of Milan. Most other groups went according to script, although Athletico will be disappointed with their performance.
Four games remaining in the year, the key one being the match-up against Genk.
