201: Liverpool still in contention

27 November 2029
Liverpool, England

A series of bad injuries to three key players were not enough to dampen the spirits among the Liverpool faithful.  The Reds have notched up four wins in a row, including an important victory against Manchester United which sees Chelsea’s lead in the Premier League cut to just two points.

It will be a real test of character for the Reds as they have to battle through the next series of matches without “Mookee” and “Tan”, two key goal scorers for the team.

The injuries to “Mookee” and “Tan” are very frustrating as both players are key to how we play. While I have good understudies, the loss means that we will be stretched in key areas. The plus side is that it gives the backup players a real chance to stake their claim for consideration as the key matches roll around.

Capital One Cup Quarter Final Draw

There were easy sides to draw in this competition. Chelsea was not one of them. Still if we get past them then we won’t meet them in the final!

Premier League – Match 10/38

C07S05-123

Arsenal are having a bad run this season and are ten points off the pace in 10th place.

C07S05-125

We field a very strong side. “Diogo” gets another chance to impress on the left, while “Ingvar” has displaced “Lazer” following a string of good performances.

C07S05-126

We put in a very solid performance that saw us cruise to a 3-0 lead. Unfortunately we let them in for a late goal, but it wasn’t enough to stop us taking all the points.

“Halo” picked up a knock, however it isn’t too bad and he won’t be out for too long.

It sounds more impressive than it is, given that we have drawn a bucket full of games.

Meanwhile, it would seem that there is money coming to the club. This could be interesting.

This match is the key one of the group. if we don’t win then the possibility of not qualifying could become a reality.

C07S05-132

We have made some changes to the lineup as we attempt to keep key players fit.

C07S05-134

We put in a good shift and won the match comfortably. “Mo” and “Naert” were outstanding today.

Lokomotiv Moskou continued to impress with and have yet to lose a game in the group.

Marseille picked up a good win against Juventus.

Premier League – Match 11/38

C07S05-137

Manchester United are up next. They haven’t been performing all that well this season and currently sit in fourth place.

C07S05-138

“Halo” is not yet fully fit so in a surprise move “Goose” partners “Tan” in midfield. “Sindy” gets the nod at right back while “Diogo” starts on the left.

C07S05-139

Well it wasn’t pretty, but it was effective. A lone “Mookee” goal was sufficient to take all three points.

Injury Update

C07S05-141

This is annoying. “Tan” is a vital cog in the wheel and he will be missed. Hopefully “Goose” will be able to step up and fill his shoes.

C07S05-142

Another niggle for us. Not quite so drastic as “Sindy” has become the first choice right back.

C07S05-143

Finally a blow. “Mookee” is our top striker and was just starting to find form. Four weeks is a long time.

Premier League – Match 12/38

C07S05-144

Southampton are holding the table up which is not a place they want to be. Sadly I don’t think I will assist them in their quest to escape.

C07S05-145

We have a game every three days. The next game against Dortmund is important for the Champions League so I have to field a second string side for this match.

C07S05-146

Considering the side we sent out this was a good victory. It keeps us in the hunt for the title.
