    Looking forward to the Lausanne Derby as well as the GCZ-Winterthur derby. I would think that Aarau or LS would be the leading contenders for promotion. Chiasso for relegation.

    If Aarau can keep this squad together I believe they will be a real force next season. I also feel that if what is said is true about GCZ they would do very well just to stay in this division.

    I think that GCZ is going to be an absolute mess next season.

    Still not sure what to make of the BCL this season. I would think that LS and Aarau should be the favorites. GCZ although they got a win are in such a flux. SLO did ok in their first BCL match.

    SLO lost the most important signee as he left the club because the demands of BCL were too much for his full-time job.

    I will get the goal/assist and attendance leaders next week.

    Aarau - GCZ - all eyes are on this one. Can GCZ make a quick return to the RSL? Major question to be answered at least partially tonight.

    3 Aug
    Kriens - Chiasso
    Winterthur - LS Should be the best match on Saturday
    Schaffhausen - Wil

    4 Aug
    SLO - Vaduz Can SLO get something if Vaduz has a EL hangover?

    Hard to believe that someone could be lower than Chiasso. It does not help that they play in Nyon.

    Didn't get to watch any matches this weekend, but Chiasso had a cracker against Aarau on Thursday. Just when you think they're probably done, they find a way to claw back out from the bottom.

    Poor result from Vaduz was expected after the hammering by Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday, as Frick played a completely rotated squad that nearly walked away with a point. This team is better than their early results. They've been concentrating on Europe, but I think once they're eliminated on Thursday, and all the focus returns to the Challenge League, they'll start picking it back up again.

    I think that Aarau is a surprise on the negative side so far. I was hoping for more.

    In the usual first half funk Aarau find themselves. Last season though it was due to a huge squad turnover... this season your guess is a as good as mine.
