145: Liverpool finish third

24 June 2026
Liverpool, England

Liverpool have pulled off the unthinkable by first thumping Chelsea and then winning all of their remaining matches to finish third. Mr BadDragon is the toast of Merseyside, and rightly so.

Considering that he was one defeat away from the sack after a woeful start, the result speaks volumes for his ability to rally the troops and deliver the results when needed. It remains to be seen how well he does when he takes the side into Europe this season.

What a finish! We were a force to be reckoned with and did exactly what we needed to do. Arsenal couldn’t live with us and folded meekly on the final day.

Blow by Blow

Premier League – Match 35/38

C07S01-293

We have struggled on the road this season, and going to Chelsea may prove to be to big of a nut to crack.

C07S01-294

I have decided to stick with the same side from the Everton game. I feel they offer the best option to get a result here.

C07S01-295

An unbelievable result! We absolutely destroyed the soon to be crowned champions in one of the most amazing results of the season.

C07S01-296

This result means we did the double over them! It was the win against Chelsea which turned the season around for us.

Premier League – Match 36/38

C07S01-297

There can be no margin for error when we travel to take on the Foxes. We need to win all our remaining games and hope Arsenal slip up.

C07S01-298

No changes made for the third match in a row. It is a bit of a gamble given the fixture congestion but one I feel I have to take.

C07S01-299

We did what we had to do, and got all three points. The injury to “Loz” is a concern.

Injury Update

C07S01-301

“Loz” is out for the rest of the season. We will have to do it without him.

Premier League – Match 37/38

C07S01-302

The penultimate game. We are in third but Arsenal have a game in hand. It is going to come down to the wire.

C07S01-303

The only change sees “Naert” taking the place of the injured “Loz”. Dig deep and lets do it!

C07S01-304

We went behind when we were a man down at the back and poor “G.I. Joe” was caught in a 2 on 1. An own goal and a penalty proved sufficient for us to burgle th three points. We were due some luck though!

Last match coming up and I just need to win to finish third. Simple really.

Premier League – Match 38/38

C07S01-307

Watford are going to be up for this game as they want to do well. We need to find a way to win.

We field the same team as we have for the past three games. Somehow I managed to completely forget to grab the screenshot!

C07S01-308

We made it tough for ourselves but in the end we did enough. Arsenal failed to win their match and so we ended up in third place without the need for tie-breakers.

Results Summary

C07S01-310

We kept our nerve and won all of the last four matches to take maximum points.

Initial Budgets

C07S01-313

I can’t complain about that. 45 million will allow me to do some serious buying of youth players.

Premier League Review

C07S01-314

Just confirming that Chelsea was that good. However we did the double over them so I feel good about that.

Player of the Year

C07S01-315

No surprise that “Loz” is named player of the year.

Team of the Year

C07S01-316

I am surprised that “Nika Kika” was preferred over “G.I. Joe”. other than that there is no real surprises.

We will be bringing in the new season with all comings and goings.
