  1. What the hell is Superliga ?

    Teams that didn’t make CCL but wanted to play extra games to make sure they didn’t have an advantage in days of rest over the teams that did ?

    1. It’s a meaningless tin pot cup, just like the UEFA Cup. No team should play their 1st stringers. Just use it to keep the reserves in shape.

  2. Fire in the Superliga will be a big drain on the players. Come July we hope to see a few new faces. Kartik in the past brought up what a drain the Superliga has become on clubs. Let’s hope it does not sidetrack the playoff run.

  3. Love having the late games. It’s great to come back home from Toyota Park and get to see the finish of a late game. With the iphone hooked up in the car you get to listen RSL or the Sounders on the way home. Oh what a night!

      1. Maybe the new kid will make an appearance tommorow against the Crew. Challenge for places is a good thing. Cant wait for Nkufo to get to Seattle after the World Cup. Maybe Switzerland will get knocked out early.
