184: A two horse race

27 November 2028
Liverpool, England

Liverpool kept up their relentless quest to break the dominance of Chelsea and United. United are putting up a brave effort and still cling to the coat tails of the Reds and it appears that the title race could be almost decided when these two giants meet in December.

If Liverpool can maintain their momentum into Christmas, they may have too much of a lead on the trailing pack and could run away with the title.

Piffle. The talking heads love you when you are winning yet keep their daggers oiled and ready for when you slip up. That being said it feels like it is our title to lose.

We have been playing good football, and the goals have been coming. It is up to us to carry on and keep striving for perfection.

Blow by Blow

Player Moves

“Tver” has been gathering dust on the shelves and was not developing sufficiently. Time to recoup the funds and move him on.

Champions League – Group H – Match 4/6

C07S04-135

On the road at Estadio Jose Alvalade taking on Sporting. A win here will see us consolodate top spot in Group H.

C07S04-136

I am trying a few things in the midfield as I search out my best second tier players.

C07S04-138

We let them score a late goal and let the win slip away. Still one point is better than none, especially when Basal also drew.

Champions League Scores

C07S04-133

No upsets here as results when according to predictions. Real Madrid, Arsenal, and Porto were big winners.

C07S04-137

Dinamo Zagreb continue to impress, while Manchester United inflicted a big defeat on Barcelona.

Premier League – Match 11/38

C07S04-140

Recently promoted West Ham are currently sitting in fifth place. However they have only half the points that we have amassed. With United looking dominant again we can not afford to slip up.

C07S04-141

“Dari” switches with “Ferran” at right back. The rest of the side picks itself, with “Trickles” displacing “Halo” for this match. Youngster “Diogo” has been impressing and has earned a trial.

C07S04-142

A tidy showing where we were not overly troubled. The good news being that United slipped up and we find ourselves eight points clear.

C07S04-143

Premier League – Match 12/38

C07S04-144

Back from the international break sees us away at Newcastle. We have a good cap now, however I will not take the foot of the throat.

C07S04-145

“Ferran” comes in at right back, and “Nicko” comes in on the bench.

C07S04-146

Actually it was a shambles for the first 70 minutes when we couldn’t string passes together and I thought we were heading for a draw. Two late goals gave us the win and all three points.

C07S04-147

Champions League – Group H – Match 5/6

C07S04-148

Next up we face Schalke knowing that a win will see us qualify.

C07S04-149

Plan ‘B’ for the Champions League as per normal. “Trickles” has all but cemented his place in my ‘B’ line-up.

C07S04-151

Not pretty, but we did what we needed to do. The fact that we did this with a ‘B’ team is a good sign.

C07S04-152

Injury Update

C07S04-153

“Volkan” has been playing well and to lose him for three weeks is slightly annoying.

Lyon bagging a point against United was the only real talking point here.

C07S04-154

Arsenal collapsed to lose a game they were totally in control of. Other than that there were no real shocks.

Premier League – Match 13/38

C07S04-155

Wigan have bounced back following relegation and are  sitting in sixth place. That being said only ten points separate Chelsea in fourth and Nottingham Forest in eighteenth place.

C07S04-156

“Halo” has secured the first choice position as box-to-box midfielder over “Trickles”.

C07S04-157

We stepped up and showed our class with an emphatic win. “Slalom” bagged a fine hat-trick.

C07S04-158

Results Summary

C07S04-159

Another good series of results with only the draw to blot the copy book.

League Table

C07S04-161
