M_Mandzukic bags 4 for Madrid. Hearts outplayed but they won't complain about the abs. Aberdeen pegged back after playing the last 25 with an outfielder in goal. Sound win for 10 man Osasuna. Arsenal benefit from their 25 rated keeper and Batistuta gets a hat-trick. PSG and Villa both field 25 rated keepers and the result is a rare goalless draw.

Disappointing to lose heavily off 62% possession. Next week our 1st choice keeper will return, but we face the impressive PSG.

Didn't really want to go up, but was determined not to throw the game. With our first team keeper injured last week we were depleted, but bloody sub striker Pahars popped up with a late equaliser to earn a 6-6 draw. That guy is a pain, he takes all the abs from my youth striker. This week at least Muirhead came good, with two goals and some decent abs.
Overall my DF and MF youths are doing fine, Berg will go up to the first team sometime next season, which will cause the usual selection dilemma. Ramos has a couple of seasons to go, but he should be playing senior football at 19 and will have a superb future if nurtured well. Muirhead however won't make it to the top level, but he was bought for peanuts, so could end up as a long term bench warmer or could be sold on to a Div 2 club for a small profit. Two nice MFs coming through as well.
ianmcnamara: Can't believe we're in this posision with two games to go. We just silently crept up on Everton and capitalized. If I end up taking up a new challange at the end of the season leaving Schalk with a title win would be the perfect way to end my time there.
