140: Liverpool through to 4th round

11 January 2026
Liverpool, England

The Liverpool recovery continues as Mr BadDragon has guided the reds past Southampton and into the fourth round with an emphatic victory.

His transformation of last season beaten Europa League finalists has been nothing short of amazing. This is especially true folllowing the horrid start they had to the campaign where they went nine games without a win.

We are still alive in the cup and playing really good football to boot. Admittedly we have had some luck, but you need a little of that if you are going to win competitions.

Blow by Blow

Premier League – Match 18/38

C07S01-162

Next up is a visit to Wales to take on Swansea City. We just need to keep the momentum up and results should take care of themselves.

C07S01-163

“Flavio” is on the bench following his knock, while I have tweaked the midfield places slightly.

C07S01-164

We struggled in front of goal, finding the net twice from offside positions. Another two points lost in reality.

C07S01-165

Premier League – Match 19/38

C07S01-166

Match 19 sees us playing against Watford. We have been poor in front of goal lately and need to pick things up.

C07S01-167

I have stuck with the same two up top and hope they can do the business. Other than that we field much of the usual suspects.

C07S01-168

This was a most pleasing performance. We did what we had to do and kept the unbeaten run going.

C07S01-169

Transfer News

C07S01-170

As much as I wanted him, the club just didn’t have the transfer budget and he was out of our reach.

F.A. Cup  – Third Round

C07S01-171

Southampton are up next in the F.A.Cup third round. They are top in the Championship so it won’t be an easy game.

C07S01-172

“Loz” is pretty knackered so “Kurl” comes in up top. “Andy” gets a start at right back and “Mugsy” starts in goal. Some new signings make up the bench to let me have a look at them.

C07S01-173

Well that was fairly comfortable. “Tan” did well and we had five different goal scorers which is pleasing.

C07S01-174

C07S01-175

“Kevster” had been with the club for only 3 days however I decided that it was good to give him some minutes.

F.A. Cup Draw

C07S01-184

Next up we play Peterborough United away. Should be a good game.

Premier League – Match 20/38

C07S01-176

Norwich City come to visit on the back of a 5-0 drubbing by Aston Villa. Last time out we managed a 1-0 victory.

C07S01-177

We field a top strength line-up. I still haven’t decided on my first choice midfield but this is close.

C07S01-178

Norwich made it hard for us and we had to battle for the win. In the end a couple of moments of brilliance were the difference.

C07S01-179

C07S01-180

After the start we put in I have exceeded all my wildest dreams. I expected to be battling to turn things around an yet it is like night and day.

Results Summary

C07S01-181

Another three wins and a draw see us now in third place.

League Table
