After “The Game of Our Fathers”, I started blogging about what had up to that point been my side save, trying to get former giants RFC Liège back to the first tier of Belgium football. It spans seven seasons, from the moment I took over the club until I left after maintaining top tier status for the second season in a row.
Boy, has this one been delayed, eh? Not sure if many of you were waiting for it, slowly ruining your manicures with nervous nail-biting; regardless of that, fear no more for it has arrived. When we left off, we had just escaped relegation with a late-season revival courtesy of playing the game how it’s f*ckingContinue reading “Blood&Blue – Season 2026/27 Review”
Once again into the fray we go with RFC Liege. When we left off the story, Les Sang et Marine had just achieved promotion after a spectacular run that propelled us into a playoff position. However, with a surprising promotion always comes a hard time the following season; how did we manage in the BelgianContinue reading “Blood&Blue – Season 2025/26 Review”

Now comes the reckoning. As always, huge thanks for the support and I hope you enjoy this one! Ain’t no sunshineContinue reading “Blood&Blue – Season 2023/24 Review”
We take another pause from the Italian Roles to take a look at how my RFC Liége has been doing. When we left off we had just earned promotion to the third tier, riding all season on the back of the French Polynesian god of goals, David Ozymandias Faupala (not his actual middle name). WeContinue reading “Blood&Blue – Season 2022/23 Review”
I want to start this new chapter by thanking all of you for your support on the first post. It might sound a bit exaggerated, but I found it astonishing that so many of you would be so interested in a simple save update and a somewhat silly stream of consciousness. Perhaps I’m doing thisContinue reading “Blood&Blue – Season 2021/22 Review”
Now that my “journey of a lifetime” series with Hearts has ended before it had really begun, I have been thinking about what I should do content-wise. I’ve got quite a few things planned out in terms of the tactics and guides, but could the blog work without the anchor of a series type-content?
