    UPDATE #1
    As of 4.26.12

    SERIE A

    Werder Bremen (30 Pts, 16 GP) lead the field in the top flight, with a 3-point gap over 2nd place Spartak Moscow (27, 16). Scorching hot Wolverhampton (26, 16) aren't far behind, while FC Koln (21, 13) have games in hand to make up the gap. Usual suspects Aston Villa (20, 15) and CSKA Moscow (17, 14) are mid-table teams this season, and probably won't figure into the title race.

    B. M'gladbach (16, 14) have managed to get a head above water in the relegation battle. Both Sunderland (14, 10) and Stade Rennes (14, 15) are level on points, but it would be the French club playing in the Pro/Rel playoff. Shockingly bad TSG Hoffenheim (13, 13) and relegation favorites Fiorentina (11, 11) would be dropped if the season ended today.

    SERIE B

    Much like last season a level below, Montpellier (26 Pts, 12 GP) are leading Serie B and the automatic promotion spot that comes with it. Perennial "almost" club QPR (23, 12) are in a log-jam tie for 2nd with former Seire A clubs Everton (23, 12) and SC Braga (23, 12). Both Celtic (22, 12) and Fulham (20, 12) will need to continue their good runs of form in order to challenge for promotion.

    Santos FC (14, 12) are once again neither a factor in the promotion race or relegation battle. Dinamo Moscow (10, 12) have a 3-point advantage over the relegation zone, currently occupied by Serie B debutants Galatasaray (7, 12) and resilient Palermo (4, 12).

    SERIE C

    Both Parma (28 Pts, 13 GP) and RSC Anderlecht (26, 13) are firmly entrenched in the promotion places, each with 1 loss on the season. Third place VfL Wolfsburg (22, 12) will need positive results if they are to unseat one of the teams ahead, while LA Galaxy (17, 12), Flamengo (16, 11) and VfB Stuttgart (15, 11) are fading fast.


    IF THE SEASON ENDED TODAY

    CHAMPIONS: Werder Bremen

    PROMOTION TO A: Montpellier, QPR/Everton winner
    PROMOTION TO B: Parma, RSC Anderlecht

    PRO/REL PLAYOFFS: Stade Rennes vs QPR/Everton loser

    As of 4.29.12

    SERIE A

    No changes at the top, where Werder Bremen (30 Pts, 16 GP) hold the edge over Spartak Moscow (27, 16) and Wolverhampton (26, 16). FC Koln (25, 15) picked up a win to inch closer to the top of the table, while Aston Villa (23, 16) are 7 points off the pace. At the bottom, 4 points separate 6th from 11th. B. M'gladbach (16, 14), currently 8th in the table, solidified their recent league form with an upset win in the Coppa over Villa. Sunderland (14, 10), TSG Hoffenheim (14, 14) and Stade Rennes (14, 15) are tied for 9th, while Fiorentina (11, 12) occupy the 12th spot.

    SERIE B

    Montpellier (26 Pts, 12 GP) have company at the top of the table, as Everton (26, 13) trail only on goal differential. QPR (25, 14) hang on to 3rd place, while SC Braga (24, 14) and Celtic (22, 13) try to keep pace. At the bottom, Dinamo Moscow (11, 13) and Galatasaray (10, 13) are set for a massive relegation scrap on the last Matchday of the season. It seems a change in philosophy for Palermo (4, 12) has not had the desired effect. While the club has certainly improved, so too has the talent in the second tier.

    SERIE C

    RSC Anderlecht (29 Pts, 14 GP) have overtaken Parma (28, 14) for first place in the third tier. Both clubs seem safe bets for promotion, however, as 3rd place VfL Wolfsburg (23, 14) are 5 points adrift. VfB Stuttgart (21, 13) are making a late push, but it might be too little too late.

    UPDATE #3
    As of 5.4.12

    SERIE A

    FC Koln (31 Pts, 17 GP) now hold a one-point edge on Werder Bremen (30, 16) in the Serie A title race, though Bremen have a vital game in hand. Wolverhampton (27, 17) and Spartak Moscow (27, 17) are still in the hunt, but need all 3 points in their remaining matches. TSG Hoffenheim (18, 16) have climbed up the table to 6th, tied with sputtering Stoke City (18, 14). B. M'gladbach (16, 14) are two points clear of the drop zone, which includes (for now) Sunderland (14, 10), Stade Rennes (14, 15) and Fiorentina (11, 12).

    SERIE B

    Montpellier (32 Pts, 14 GP) have a 3 point lead over Everton (29, 14) in the promotion race. QPR (25, 14) are still holding off SC Braga (24, 14), Celtic (23, 14) and Fulham (22, 14) for the last promotion playoff spot. This pundit believes Santos FC (16, 14) are cursed (or blessed), having avoided both the promotion battle and relegation zone for the 3rd successive season. The Brazilian club is 5 points clear of 8th place (and safe) Dinamo Moscow (11, 14). Galatasaray (10, 14) and Palermo (5, 14) are in the crosshairs of the drop.

    SERIE C

    RSC Anderlecht (35 Pts, 16 GP) are a virtual lock for promotion, while Parma (28, 14) must hold off late-charging FC Kobenhavn (26, 14) for the last promotion place. VfL Wolfsburg (23, 14) and VfB Stuttgart (21, 15) will surely be promotion favorites next season.


    IF THE SEASON ENDED TODAY

    PROMOTION TO A: Montpellier, Everton/QPR winner
    PROMOTION TO B: RSC Anderlecht, Parma

    UPDATE #4
    As of 5.10.12

    SERIE A

    FC Koln (34 Pts, 20 GP) have jumped ahead of Werder Bremen (31, 17) by virtue of 3 extra game played at this point in the season. Both Wolverhampton (30, 19) and Spartak Moscow (30, 18) still have eyes on the title, and with Wolves playing Bremen on the final match day, nothing has been decided in the TFS title race. Meanwhile at the bottom, Stoke City (18, 14) have been pulled into the relegation battle, just 4 points clear of the drop zone. CSKA Moscow (17, 15) and Stade Rennes (17, 18) are safe for now, while B. M'gladbach (16, 14) occupy the pro/rel playoff spot. Fiorentina (16, 16) and Sunderland (14, 10) would face the drop.

    SERIE B

    Montpellier (36 Pts, 16 GP) remain on top of the second tier, with Everton (30, 15) 6 points back with a game in hand. QPR (29, 16) are hanging on to 3rd place, with a 2-point lead over Celtic (27, 16). Fulham (26, 16) and SC Braga (24, 16) are still in the race for 3rd, but need help. The triumvirate of relegation battlers are separated by just 3 points. Dinamo Moscow (11, 14) are clinging to safety, while Galatasaray (10, 16) and Palermo (8, 16) occupy the drop zone. Moscow face off against Galatasaray on the final match day of the season in a massive relegation scrap.

    SERIE C

    RSC Anderlecht (35 Pts, 17 GP) still maintain a 1-point lead over Parma (34, 16) in the third tier. FC Kobenhavn (29, 15) could sneak in to 2nd if VfL Wolfsburg (26, 16) can upset Parma as they did Anderlecht. heznfire wrote a good clinching scenario piece here.

    SERIE A

    Status quo in Serie A, see Update #4.

    SERIE B

    Montpellier (42 Pts) have clinched 1st place and the automatic promotion place that come with it. Everton (33, 17) have clinched a promotion playoff spot, although which one is yet to be decided. At the moment, QPR (30 Pts) is holding on to the last spot, but Fulham (26, 16) can move into a promotion spot if they win their next two games (at Galatasaray, vs Santos). Unless Celtic (27, 17) can overturn a 6-goal differential, they will be staying in Serie B for next season. Dinamo Moscow (11, 15) and Galatasaray (10, 16) are still primed for a relegation showdown on the last match day of the season, while Palermo (8, 16) are hanging by a thread.

    SERIE C

    Status quo in Serie C, see Update #4.
