190: Liverpool retain Capital One Cup

7 March 2029
Liverpool, England

Mr BadDragon added the Capital One Cup to the Liverpool trophy cabinet for the second time in his tenure. The Merseyside outfit have impressed this season having beaten Arsenal in the final.

The early game belonged to Arsenal who looked threatening and when they scored first it looked likely that their run of good results over the Reds would continue. Fortunately for Mr BadDragon and the Liverpool fans this time it was different as the Liverpool side turned in a top drawer second half performance to run out comfortable winners.

While the Capital One Cup was a nice distraction, the big result was the comfortable defeat of Barcelona in the Champions League round of sixteen. This result sets up a very tough tie against Chelsea in the Quarter Finals.

Just as “Diago” gets talked about getting some game time he picks up a knock.

Premier League – Match 27/38

C07S04-286

Nottingham Forest come to town in match 27 of the current campaign. This is a match we should win. Lets turn that into reality.

C07S04-287

We have some tired legs and so I have opted to rotate the squad for this game. It’s a gamble, but one I have to take.

C07S04-288

We did the job and moved one more win closer to the title. It’s not yet in the bag, but its getting close.

Trickles picked up a knock but might be back in time for the Cup Final.

Premier League – Match 28/38

C07S04-291

Sheffield United have not won a game since the beginning of January. They are still sitting in 4th place and we can’t relax against them.

C07S04-292

We go into this match with a slight rotation to rest players as the Capital One Cup final approaches.

C07S04-293

Another good win although not as convincing as it might have been. I was perhaps guilty of changing the team with a view to resting key players ahead of the Cup Final.

C07S04-296

We have had a torrid run against Arsenal in cup competitions and we are due a good result. Can we deliver what is needed?

C07S04-297

“K.A.A.” makes his return from injury as we field our best defense and midfield configuration. “Mookee” replaces “Oos” on the left flank due to “Oos” having a tough time finding the net lately.

C07S04-298

We did what we needed to do after falling behind. I was slightly concerned that we might fail to get the result however a good second half showing saw us comfortable 3-1 winners.
