136: Liverpool Struggle

28 September 2025
Liverpool, England

Liverpool have struggled to get results on the board and are now four games without a win. Mr BadDragon has his work cut out to turn the lumbering sides fortunes about. He has not been helped by a defence that has more holes than your average sieve.

Local supporters advocate, Jonny Mongo, has been very critical suggesting that BadDragon is out of his depth at Anfield.

Well this was not a great month for us. Our defensive frailties were shown up and at times we looked bereft of ideas. We have much work to do to get us back where we need to be.

Blow by Blow

Premier League – Match 4/38


It doesn’t get much bigger than a Liverpool/United game. Here we are away at Old Trafford, knowing a win will take us above United in the table.


“J-Lal” is back from Injury and pushes “Goose” to the bench.


We were disgustingly poor. Our defence just didn’t bother turning up and there is much work needed to be done.


Injury Update


Just to make matters worse we lost our top strike for 5-6 months with a broken leg.

Premier League – Match 5/38


We need to put up a better fight against Spurs. It is not easy to be blanked by your arch rival.


“Wes” is in for the injured “Naert”, while “Birigui” come in for the disappointing “G.I.Joe”. “K.A.A.” gets a run as DLP due to his solid defensive qualities.


Once again we have no killer instinct, and look unsure where the goal is. Oh how I would like a “Benny Jets” or a “Mookee”. This could be a long season.


Injury Update


“Ostariz” picked up a knock on his come back and will be out for a week.

Capital One Cup – 3rd Round


We are away at the Hawthorns with only two days turnaround after the last match. We need a win to get us back on track.


I have fielded an almost fully changed line-up for this match.


We made it harder than it had to be, however we got there in the end. Not bad for a one day break.


New Signing


On the shopping trail for some aerial dominance and found this brute of a youngster. 6′ 6″ tall with green heading reach and light blue jumping!


Capital One Cup Draw


Well we get Arsenal. That will not be an easy game.

Premier League – Match 6/38


Next game we host Aston Villa who are sitting in 14th place.


Trying some slightly different roles in an attempt to shore up the defence, something which is definitely needed.


Despite my best efforts, our defence was average at best. Neither of our first choice central defenders seem able to deal with any ball played through them.


Results Summary


This month doesn’t make all that great reading.

League Table


Not the greatest start to a career I have had. We need to string a series of wins together.
