185: Liverpool qualify top again

18 December 2028
Liverpool, England

Mr BadDragon has continued his impressive record of winning Champions League groups as Liverpool win group H. Liverpool did enough to get a 1-0 victory over Basel, and see themselves through to the knockout phase of the competition for the third year running.

BadDragon has finished top of every champions league group his sides have competed in. This also includes the African and Asian competitions which he has won with Jomo Cosmos and Newcastle Jets. He has yet to win the European Champions League, having lost a final to Chelsea while managing Anderlecht.

Another group stage wrapped up. What was impressive is that we managed to do this with what ammounted to a ‘B’ Team line-up. We have also managed to open up a good lead in the Premier Leauge and so I will be evaluating the goals for the season once we get to the end of December.

Blow by Blow

F.A. Cup 3rd Round Draw

C07S04-162

Crystal Palace represent a favourable draw. Not the easiest team to play, but one we should beat.

Champions League – Group H – Match 6/6

C07S04-163

We have already qualified so all that remains is to decide who wins the group.

C07S04-165

I have decided to change things up a little here. I just feel it is important to not be too predictable.

C07S04-167

Well we got the win despite our best efforts to not score goals. I took a few chances and although they didn’t come off we got the win.

Champions League Results

C07S04-164

Real Madrid beat Juventus in a tight contest.

C07S04-166

The Milan and Dinamo Zagreb draw consigned Dortmund to the Europa League.

Final Group Standings

C07S04-169

Dortmund fail to qualify in what was a really tight group. Group B was almost the same as last seasons Group H with Sevilla taking our place.

Premier League – Match 14/38

C07S04-170

Next up we have Norwich City who are flirting with relegation yet area  win away from the top half of the table.

C07S04-171

Once again we have our best side on the park. I have a little surprise prepared for Norwich as the game unfolds.

C07S04-172

Well the experiment worked sort of. We were good, but not great. Still three points is three points.

C07S04-173

Premier League – Match 15/38

C07S04-174

Fulham are sitting in 13th place and have been struggling to get wins. I see no reason to let them back into the game.

C07S04-175

For the first time this season we field an unchanged line-up.

C07S04-176

We started slowly, but after I changed up to a slightly different formation it was one way travel.

C07S04-177

Capital One Cup – Quarter Final

C07S04-178

Next up we have Manchester City in the Capital One Cup. I am torn between sticking to my plan and chasing all titles again.

C07S04-179

It’s the Capital One Cup. I will stick with the plan. The ‘B’ Team will have to deliver.

C07S04-180

We got a little lucky. On another day it could have been a different matter. Still a win is a win and we are still alive in the competition.

C07S04-181

Capital One Cup – Semi Final Draw

C07S04-182

Good News. We have avoided Arsenal again. Bad News. Last time we met these boys in a semifinal it ended in tears.

Champions League – 1st Knoxkout Round Draw

C07S04-184

Barcelona will not be an easy tie. Then again there are no easy ties now.

Premier League – Match 16/38

C07S04-183

Tottenham are a shadow of their former selves. They are still formidable so there is no room for error.

C07S04-185

As long as this line-up is fit and keeps winning, it will not be changed. Simple enough plan really.

C07S04-186

We won ugly. Yes it was ugly. It was however a win, which makes it sixteen on the bounce in the league this season.

C07S04-187

Results Summary

C07S04-189

Five from five with three clean sheets. The dream continues.

League Table

C07S04-188

Ten points clear at the top in a very strange season.

Champions League – Group H

C07S04-191

Confirming the top placed finish in Group H.
