Hi All. I have enjoyed my vacation a lot but was eager to come back to see what had happeend in the UC matches and in the various domestic leagues. Still not all have started yet again, but more and more come to life again. With in the big leagues Barca appearing vulnarable (though with a huge gap still with Real), ManUtd seeming unbeatable still and Inter also cruising for the title. And Lyon is going for another title, while in Germany it is still a great and fantastic fight. In Portugal the top 3 is on top, so nothing new, but in Holland, though a bit struggling, AZ(very probable leaguewinner) and Twente keep being ahead of the also struggling Ajax and PSV. In Turkey we see also not top-3 faces on the top with Sivasspor and Trabzonspor.
This week more European matches to come: first CL and then elimination time in UC. Can we expect surprises? Aalborg, Metalist and Twente, (St Etienne ?) have done a great first leg preparing for such a surprise, but will they hold on in the second leg?
P.S. I ahev also updated the predicted country and teamranking, which mainly has changed due to the draw-implications, as I haven't changed the 'who qualifies' accoridng to results of first leg (theoretically all is still possible)
