For your 'I' team, how about Ingolstadt in Germany's 2. Bundesliga?

Ingoldstadt are a possibility, but all 'I' clubs at the moment are at least secure.

Also -

Verbeek, a left back I also had on loan at Galipolli scores to send us to the big time!!!

5 games in and we're unbeaten! We've got PSV next away though so I expect our run to end there, though we did manage a 1-1 draw away to Ajax, which saw youth academy player Diego van Gool score a late equaliser.

After being thumped by PSV our form hasn't been great, the early start still means we're relatively clear of the relegation places though!

well Diego van Gool has certainly done enough to impress Southampton's scouts as he'll be leaving us for £1.2M shortly!

Elsewhere in the league, a pretty good run of form in our last 6 games makes it seem very unlikely that we'll face relegation worries.
