Plenty more important games this week as Watford visit the Emirates stadium to take on a subdued but very dangerous Arsenal side, Charlton's visit to league leaders Chelsea could well define their season and three points are a must and Villa have a tough game at Plymouth. Elsewhere Schalke face Hamburg where both sides play the fast tactical system, always an interesting matchup. Ancona's visit to Juventus wont be easy and Parma will be hoping to surprise visitors Inter Milan this week. Whilst in Spain Barcelona will be hoping to overcome struggling Sevilla.
It is a tough week for my sides, toughest week for a while, with Santos visiting league leaders Fluminense and Banstead at home to Sheffield Wednesday. I'm a bit worried about Banstead, playing slow against a better team also playing slow, doesn't normally work out too well, but I didn't get time to change things around to go more defensive, so fingers crossed this week for what could be a damage limitation day for me.

Fast work this week, thanks Paul.
Two very big games for me this week as Paul has already pointed out. Away to Chelsea, not at home as I initially thought, is crucial. 3 points would be amazing and is much needed to get back into it, but away to the leaders and in-form Chelsea, I think I'd take a draw now if I could.
Fluminense v Santos is massive in Brazil, despite being top with 100% record and still yet to concede a goal this season I'm not getting carried away with Fluminense, Santos are a real top team and by far the toughest team we have faced so far. A trip away to Flamengo was a daunting prospect but I think I played them at a good time having lost a few key players. Santos are still the team to beat and it will be a really tough game today, especially without Luan, Fluminense's talismanic TM.

I am hopeful that Inter can deal with Parma even though we're away from home. The team is settled, in good form and there are no major changes going on so hopefully ......... Really need to win this one to keep the pressure on the pack, especially Roma, Napoli and Juve.
Villa are going to get demolished against Plymouth. Away at a team with so many quality players is always tough. Ben seems to have got his mojo back too and they're playing well.
Ollie has been banging on about his top of the table clash where Preston are playing the other 100% team in his division. Should be interesting.
