187: Liverpool extend their lead

15 January 2029
Liverpool, England

Liverpool have extended their lead in the Premier League to ten points plus a game in hand following another two matches. The Reds are looking unstoppable, in much the same way that Manchester United did last season. There is still a lot of football to be played, however I have a feeling that we will have a new champion this year.

I feel it is a little early to be calling the race over. All I can focus on is to keep winning games and let the points table take care of itself.

Blow by Blow

Capital One Cup – Semi Final – Leg 1

C07S04-214

The Semi Final first leg against Chelsea. It is tempting to go hard for this competition however its not to be.

C07S04-215

It may appear that we are lying down against them. In reality we are rationalising the season. Premier League is number one goal.

C07S04-216

We managed to get a draw in a game we were second best in. If we get through this series of matches and into the final, well… we may take it seriously.

C07S04-217

F.A. Cup – 3rd Round

C07S04-218

We owe Crystal Palace after the last meeting against them. I know the Premier League is my focus, but back to back F.A. Cups would look good on the resume.

C07S04-219

We are bringing out the big guns today. No prisoners will be taken!

C07S04-220

Well we were good and not so good. We scored five but let in three.  Still a win is a win and we are through to the next round.

Transfer Out

C07S04-222

Bean is gone. He was not going to get much better and it’s time to move him on.

Premier League – Match 21/38

C07S04-223

West Brom are next. The plan has not changed. Keep winning!

C07S04-224

A slight rotation to rest some tired legs. We are fielding a fairly strong team however.

C07S04-225

We posted a comfortable victory in a match where I never felt fully in control of.It seemed like we made the most of the chances we created and that made the difference.

C07S04-226

Premier League – Match 22/38

C07S04-227

On the road at Reading who are really struggling this season. Despite their low league position I will not be taking this game easy at all.

C07S04-228

A rotated side for this match as I mix and match my best players to keep them fresh. “Dari” has been a disappointment this season and needs to buck up his ideas.

C07S04-229

A very good win this. I think this was one of my better management games as I had to try a few things to conjure up the win.

Results Summary

C07S04-231

Another good series of matches sees us still alive in all domestic competitions.

League Table

C07S04-233

Ten points clear and a game in hand is a nice place to be.
