137: Liverpool out of the Cup

29 October 2025
Liverpool, England

Underfire Liberpool Manager Mr BadDragon must be wondering why he left his Anderlecht side as his season continues to go from bad to worse.

Since moving to Anfield he has managed only two league wins from 9 games, has been knocked out of the Capital One cup, and sees his side languishing in 13th place in the league.

It seems to be only a matter of time before he is summoned before the board and given his marching orders.

I have to say the dream has turned into a nightmare. This is not how I imagined the season would play out when I took this gig. All I can do is try to make the best of a bad lot and see if we can’t get some good results from somewhere. The other alternative is that I polish off my C.V. and go job hunting.

Blow by Blow

Team News


Not telling me anything I don’t already know. Wins are compulsory.

Premier League – Match 7/38


Next up we have Newcastle visiting Anfield. This is a must win game for us.


Changing things up a little at the back with “K.A.A.” dropping back into a defensive midfield role in an attempt to screen the centre backs. “Tan” is preferred over “Kurl” due to his rather poor form of late.


It was a joke. They created nothing, but yet we couldn’t get our shit together enough to score.


Premier League – Match 8/38


We need a win to break the rut. Apart from the Manchester United game we have not been bad.


A change at the back sees both centre backs dropped. “Wes” moves to the bench as “Ostariz” is back fit.


We did the hard work and got ahead only to concede immediately from the kick-off. To make matters worse “Ferran” was sent of for a crude challenge.


Injury Update


We lost Tiago for three weeks just as he was set for a long run in the first team.

I laid down the bar for this kind of challenge. Hopefully the rest of the team will learn that it is not OK!

Transfer News


We tried our best but in the end he went to the evil empire.

Injury Update


To make matters worse we lose our first choice keeper.


Sensing his chance, “Mugsy” decides he wants to agitate for a loan move.

This is a  slightly worrying development. We need to go on a good run to keep me in a job.

Premier League – Match 9/38


Well we are up against it today. We have to win this game, or my time in charge of Liverpool may come to an unscheduled end.


I went to the assistant manager and said what do you think. This was his suggestion.


Well we had our chances and probably deserved the win. However a draw helps ease the pressure slightly.


Capital One Cup – 4th Round


We will have our work cut out to win this game. Still all we can do is keep battling.


We go with a slightly rotated side and I decide that we need to come out with guns blazing!


Once again the lack of a well rounded strike held us back. Our defending was also substandard and the lack of composure at centre back was shown up again.


Results Summary


Another run of poor results has us flirting with the wrong end of the table.

League Table


13th position is not a good place to be.
