    Darlon's Everton squad is showing why he was the early season favorite. They have been both dominating on both the offensive and defensive side of the pitch. The Midfield is showing why these guys figure to be a real threat come Champions League time. Everton looks to continue their winning ways against Dordmund and the new member of league one.. Whoever that may be.​

    After suffering an embarrassing defeat to open the campaign against Benfica, Manager Krebstar and his Dordmund squad are now playing at a top level. With 2 wins in a row, they have pretty much secured a spot in the Champions League. Facing Everton this week should be a fantastic test for the German club. We'll surely see if these guys are for real.​

    After opening with 2 wins, Hedache's beloved Galatasaray took one on the chin against arch rival Hamburg. All is not lost as the Turkish side has shown it's quality through the first two weeks. It will be interesting to see how they respond after the transfer window stripped them of some great talent. Big games against Benfica and Leverkusen are ahead and Hedache has his eye on 6 points so he can get a top 2 seed in the Champions League.​

    After opening the season with a thrashing of Dordmund, we thought we had a ringer here. Sadly, they have slowed down a bit and still sit on 1 win. They have some good talent and are looking forward to making the Champions League. With huge fixtures this week against Galatasaray and Hamburg, we should know what this team is all about. Not only the CL hinges on this week but also their chance at promotion. Good results against these two clubs will give these guys confidence moving forward.​

    Manager Dylema has proven he can play with anyone, he just needs to be more consistent. With the logjam after Everton, Zenith has everything in front of them. It's going to be a dog fight but with that brings promise. A Champions League berth is easily in reach but a huge match with Dordmund stands in their way. They also need a big result against bottom table squad Bordeaux.​
    Top Performers:
    Zyryanov - 3 Goals​
    Bukharov - 3 Assists​
    Alves & Zyryanov - 1 MOM​
    Malafeev - 1 CS​

    Yet another league one squad stuck in the middle here. They have some impressive performances so far and only seem to be getting stronger as Manager Night becomes more acclimated with his team. They really need American Clint Dempsey to carry this squad into Champions League competition. As with all the League 1 teams outside of Everton, this week proves critical. Levekusen and Bordeaux present the challenges for the English side. Knight expects no worse than 4 points this week.​
    Top Performers:
    Zamora - 2 Goals​
    Murphy & Duff - 1 Assist​

    Manager KillerNuts has not been pleased with his squads production thus far and has promised changes if it doesn't improve. Luckily, he remains very much in the middle of the pack with so much time left in the season. Like everyone here, the CL is still a distinct possibility but he needs good results this week against Fulham and very defensive minded Galatasaray.​
    Top Performers:
    Ballack & Helmes - 2 Goals​
    4 Tied with 1 Assist​
    0 MOM​
    Adler - 1 CS​

    If anyone would have told me Manager El Prez would have his squad this far at the bottom of the table, I would have told them to stop smoking whatever they were on but the fact of the matter is they are at where they deserve right now. They beat a great Galatasaray squad but let 3 other fixtures result in zero points. It's a huge week for the German squad as they face off against Benfica and maybe the new member of League 1. Hopefully for El Prez's sake, 6 points will be the result.​
    Top Performers:
    Elia & Guerrero - 1 Goal​
    Demel - 1 Assist​
    Westermann - 1 MOM
    Rost - 1 CS​

    Yikes! Bordeaux has yet to gain a point yet and maybe it's time to hit the panic button for Manager Brian Calamares. He needs results and he needs them badly or else this season could be a lost one. With the Champions League now a pipe dream, any result will do. These guys just need to get some confidence back. Matches against Zenith and Fulham will not be easy but 4 points really are needed for the French side.​

    Great write up, sir.

    One correction...Barrios, not Barros. :)

    Not too worried yet.

    Had quality opportunities in the game against Zenit and the Dortmund game could have gone my way as well.

    Hoping to grab 4+ points this week.
