    Generally the competitions are still active except for the Scandinavian, Baltic and Belarus competitions which have ended so they're on a four month break.
    There's also a short winterbreak for most competitions but that only lasts three weeks (from mid-December to early January usually).

    Unfortunately in a fantasy team sense Man City haven't been as reliable as last season so far. I had Yaya Toure as my captain for a while but he's done nothing for weeks so I'm considering taking him out, of course then I would have no City players and they are the only undefeated team still left in the league.

    Good, not great night for the BuLi, Schalke came back from 0-2 to draw Arsenal at home, Dortmund led much of the match in Madrid but Real got a last minute (somewhat flukey) goal from an Özil free kick. Both top of their groups and would have to collapse to not advance.

    Arsenal let a two goal lead slip, City at least came back from 2 goals down (seems typical of Manchester clubs right now :p )


    Charlton beat Cardiff 5-4 having been 2-0 down and then leading 5-2. 6 minutes of added time apparently.

    Don't forget a nice hearty lol@Real, only took 1 point out of two matches vs Dortmund, a club that probably as a tenth of their transfer budget.

    EDIT: The Swiss Ramble has a good article on Dotmund's finances. Here's a nice chart on transfer spending the past 3 seasons

    Always good to see that one can still win and produce good teams without spending tonnes of money.

    Can anyone remember the last time Cech actually saved something? He's in the team purely on a very old reputation.

    Missing Ashley Cole on the left, and Mikel needs to go. He's a waste of a shirt.

    Fantastic result for Celtic. Here's hoping they get through the group stage.

    And awesome last minute goal for Chelsea. Last "kick" of the game gets the win.

    And a win for Man U completes the trilogy. Great night for the Brits.
