Borussia Dortmund 3 - 2 Liverpool F.C.
Gotze (14') Gündogan
Reus (87') Gotze
Sturridge (28') Lucas Leiva
He'll of a back and forth match here as both squads came out of the gate firing. Sturridge made quick work on a midfield turnover and took off toward Dortmund's goal, made a nifty move to get around Subotić and beat Weidenfeller to the far post. Dortmund quickly responded when Gündogan gave Gotze a ball in space, where he used his footwork and speed to get into a scoring position and gave Jose Reina no chance to stop the shot. Then an opportunistic Lewo chased down a loose ball in the box and cooly finished a score. Sturridge again responded and leveled the match at 2-2 when Lucas Leiva put a thru ball past the Dortmund back line, and a poorly played 1v1 made it easy to beat Weidenfeller. Dortmund amped up their movement and nearly had a goal again before half time off a Lewo header but Pepe Reina was there to save the day with a phenomenal reaction save to deny the polish international. The second half opened up with a lot of easy ball movement for both squads, but in the 87', Daniel Agger got himself a costly yellowcard. Reus drilled a free kick to win three points for the home squad. GG eheskey11

In what was an evenly contested match up, it took two late goals by Shakhtar to avoid losing after taking an early lead. Dindane nearly gave Aberdeen the early lead when he snuck between two Shakhtar defenders and fired toward the near post. Pyatov made the nice kick save to deny him. In the 27th minute, Yaroslav Rakitskiy rattled the post with a left footed laser from 35 yards out. Gordon was well beaten but Rakitskiy was just inches off a perfect top right corner goal. In the 36th, Shakhtar got their goal with Swiss international Xherdan Shaqiri dispossessed the Aberdeen right back and cut around a guy before curling it in the far netting from an acute angle. At half it was 1-0. Aberdeen would equalize in the 70th when Dindane took the short free kick away forcing a long boot which Alex won straight to Dindane who was in a huge gap between the two center defenders. Dindane ran 1v1 with the keeper and easily finished it to equalize. Shakhtar temporarily lost their cool from the play and found themselves down 4 minutes later when Dindane received a pass, turned and shot a finesse shot with his left foot which Pyatov was only able to tip in the air toward the far post where a BARELY onside Thiago was waiting to head it into the open net. 2-1 Aberdeen. Shakhtar nearly equalized off the kick off when Douglas Costa went in and out of some Aberdeen defenders before firing wide just inside the box. Shakhtar was highly frustrated in the 83rd when Mkhitaryan was found on the edge of the box and nutmegged the defender with the first touch then used a quick foot shift to get around another defender before curling it for the far post. The ball struck the post and bounced back to Douglas Costa for what should have been a tap on. However, despite the shouts from his manager to shoot the ball, Costa kept dribbling toward goal before it was blocked and cleared out for a corner from about 3 yards away. Shakhtar would avoid broken controllers as they scored on that corner through a Raphael Varane header. As the 90th minute approached, the ref signaled for 3 minutes of extra time. The ball bounced between teams numerous times and it looked as if the whistle would go at any moment, ending the game in a tie. However, Shakhtar got lucky to earn a corner when they finally got possession of the ball. That corner was deflected to Chygynskiy's chest. Chygrynskiy chested it down before volleying it with his left before it hit the ground and the ball sailed into the left corner to earn his team the emotional win. What a great game for the neutrals. Good game bmwalla2
Strootman dont know what min
Tottenham dominated the entire game. Almost all of Tottenham's possesions turned into chances with Bale and Torres leading the attack. With over 5 shots a piece only torres was able to find the net on an open header after some suspect defense from Aberdeen. Llorris didnt prove nearly as consistant as Gordon. After Torres goal the Reds were able to win a corner. With a good ball in from Alex, Reynolds is able to head one right above Llorris' head. 1-1. The Spurs were determined to retake the lead as multiple chances are saved by an adept Ben Gordon. After half-time neither team could believe the score line. The second half proved just as absurd. After a relentless push from the Spurs it was again the Reds who were able to score off of much less dangerous possesion. In the 63rd and 65th minute Dindane and Alex are able to convert each of their respective chances. Lloris has not made a save since the 9th minute. After even more pressure from tottenham it is lennon who goes upper 90 to finally best ben gordon whos only previous blemish was from being drawn out by a winger who crossed back across the goal for torres' goal. The game ended with the Dons GK getting a deserved MOTM and the spurs getting an undeserved loss. Only time will tell if Aberdeen can continue their clinical finishing as they have scored 5 goals in 2 matches against much higher touted opponents.

This match was closely contested but the difference was last gasp tackling and cool finishing by Shakhtar. They scored first when a ball was passed up to Luiz Adriano but Adriano was dispossed....However Luiz Adriano quickly dispossessed the ball back and had a 1v1 from a slight angle. Adriano blasted across goal with a surprisingly great finish considering his finishing ability and Shakhtar had a perfect start. Podolski would equalize in the 60th when he got down the line, fired at Pyatov who saved it but only right back to Podolski who fired right at Pyatov again but somehow it snuck through into the net and Arsenal had a much deserved goal. However, Shakhtar would quickly equalize just 5 minutes later when man of the match Douglas Costa got down the line and shrugged off a foul by Kieran Gibbs to throw in a cross around the PK spot. Armenian international Henrik Mkhitaryan was waiting there and turned and unleashed an overhead kick that went perfectly into the top left corner for what might be the goal of the season. This took all the fight out of Arsenal and Shakhtar put the game away in the 88th when the ball was passed up to Douglas Costa who quickly turned and hit a streaking Taison who was ahead of his man coming in from the wing and Taison, the former Metalist player, curled it into the far post from an acute angle in what proved to be the final goal. 3-1 the final score from the Emirates. Great game Blaza

A. Johnson Larentowicz
No subs or injuries for either squad.
Quite an open match here with Dortmund using their quickness to get three points and help their push to move up the table. Błasczcykowski had a heck of a match, creating the first goal and putting the next two in to seal the match.
The photo shows Błasczcykowski in perfect position as Fire GK Rybka came to close down the ball and Reus chipped a cross for an easy goal.
Stats updated except for average rating
Since Chelsea has not won any games, I'm just going to either eliminate their games or give everyone a 1-0 lead. Either way, if you have games with Chelsea that are behind or have some coming up, don't worry about them.
Purely for reference, are their players fair game in the upcoming window?
For the right price, yes. They will be treated as a non-user controlled team.
I don't have the money they would desire, just curious. Thanks!
You have like $32 mil, you could probably sign Paulo Ferreira
Juventus 1 - 1 Dortmund
Grobkruetz (17') Lewo
Quite a clean game here, a lot of defense too. No fouls as you can tell. Dortmund's goal came when a beautiful air ball over the Juventus defense landed at the feet of Grobkruetz and he chipped his finish over Buffon. Then on a corner kick in the second half, Weidenfeller misplayed a corner kick, missed a dive which allowed Matri to put away a diving header into an open goal. Buffon had a few tremendous saves to earn Juventus a point. Gg ConiglioSG
Clay Davis baby! CLASSIC show. I was dying of laughter when Snoop got arrested in real life for the same shit she represented on the show. hahahaha

The manager made a few changes across the team and the result was an enjoying day at the park for Arsenal fans. Young England International, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain came into the side and his direct play, troubled Juventus all afternoon. Quick to dribble at his marker, AOC created spaces between the lines, allowing areas for Arsenal dangermen Gervinho and Walcott to slip into. After Matri knotted it up at 1-1 in the 19th minute, Arsenal scored the next 3 goals to seal the game for the Gunners. Arsenal looks forward to taking on the hated T*ttenh*m Sp*rs at the Lane next match.
According to the match summary, you had a player injured Jon MK yet you did not report it. Who was injured for your team? ConiglioSG do you know?
I dunno man. I remember the Großkreutz name for some reason. Maybe is because he scored the goal :/. Sorry about that!
It's not your fault, it's Jon's fault
Yep, Błasczcykowski. Forgot. Lo siento
Ok, he's out for this week of games since he rolled a 4
