126: Andelecht stun Bayern

15 March 2025
Anderlecht, Belgium

Anderlecht pulled off one of the most amazing results when they overturned the 1-2 deficit and won the tie in spectacular fashion. The Paars-wit fans were jubilant at the way their team came from behind in the match.

The result sees Anderlecht into the quarter finals for the third year in a row where they will be facing the defending champions    Porto.

Well that was a fantastic result. We put on a master class in the second half to run ot comfortable winners. Now the real battle begins!

Injury Update

A week out from the Bayern game we lose “Baby Face” I was looking at playing him in the AM(C) position against Bayern too. Gutted.

S03-269

Sporting Lokeren acts as a shadow match for the Bayern game. We have no weekend match so we can rest up the squad for the crucial match.

S03-270

We have the top side on the pitch for this match. I want to take the game to them and win well.

S03-271

There is something to be said for a bad dress rehersal. It’s not that we were bad, just ineffective.

Impressive! 22 wins in a row is a great run. We really have the big fish, little pond syndrome. Our reputation is not good enough to attract the top players.

“Baby Face” picks up player of the month, and sadly is out injured.

S03-275

This is the big game. I really want to get the result just to prove that we can beat a fancied side.

S03-276

We are surprisingly not favourites in this match. I hope we can take it to them and do well.

S03-277

We are going to play our top line-up today. My original plan to play “Baby Face” as AM(C) was scuttled with his injury.

S03-279

In the imortal words of Blur “Wooo Hoooo!”. What can I say about the result! Fantastic. Amazing!!!  I was worried at half time only being 0-0 and Bayern making all the play.  We had missed some key chances.

“Trickles” opened the scoring with a lovely strike and that seemed to break  the game open. In the end the 4-0 win was flattering nut totally deserved.

Manchester City did enough to advance against Schalke.

S03-281

Chelsea and Dortmund were both too good and advance easily.

Jupiler Pro League – Match 29/30

S03-282

It will be a contrasting match against the Yellow Red boys.

S03-283

The side we send out has a rather experimental quality about it. Fully rotated from the one which played Bayern. “Vert” gets a start for the first team.

S03-284

A game of two halves. We went 4-0 up in the first half and conceded two late goals which took some of the gloss off the evening.

“Messi” has been performing very well for Stoke, and I wanted to keep him out on loan.

S03-287

“Shaggy” was a player I liked the look of as a 16 year old during my time at the Jets.

S03-291

He has developed well, and has the potential to develop into a very good defensive midfielder, something which the squad is missing.

Porto ripped United a new one, thumping them 7-3 on aggregate. PSG proved too strong for PSV winning 4-1.

Lazio upset Barcelona, while Real Madrid advance past Sampdoria.

If there was a tougher draw than Porto, I’d be surprised. If we advance to the Semi Final we will have earned it!

Jupiler Pro League – Match 30/30

S03-292

The final league match of the first round sees us up against Lommel who are seeking to make top six. I can’t see that happening.

S03-295

Very much a Hybrid side with a few key players coming back in.

S03-296

Well that was underwhelming. We just were not good enough and did not take our chances at all.

S03-298

We dropped our consecutive wins record, however extended our undefeated run.
