MLS Updates

ESPN.com released their Week 4 Power Rankings. Based on their 4-1 win over NY and their 1st Place standing in the East, DC United sit atop their Rankings. DC also sits atop the Supporters Shield Table, and can solidify that position this Saturday with a win over visiting FC Dallas.

Alecko Eskandarian was named the MLS Player of the Week. However, it may also turn out that this might be the first time that the MLS Player of the Week also gets fined. There are rumors circling Esky that he may be fined due to his "Spit-gate" performance with a can of Red Bull on Saturday.

DC United announced this week their Decade's Best XI players.

Another member of the Red Bull New York Front office left the club yesterday, Chris Canetti left his position as assistant general manager. Who is next in line?

UEFA Champions League

Today we find out one of the two clubs that will be in Paris on the 17th of May. I still think that Arsenal can do the business in Spain, and book themselves a trip "home" to Paris. They have a 1 goal lead, which if they play to a 0-0 tie, will still get them through. Villarreal, as I understand it, are very tough at home. This should be a pretty good match.

I personaly hope for an arsenal win. It almost hurts to say, as I am a Manchester United supporter, but I do not want to see an all Spanish final. I disliked the all Italian final several years ago when Milan and Juve went to penalty kicks at Old Trafford.

Tomorrow is Barcelona hosting Milan. That should go the same way as the first match did, with Barcelona winning out and heading off to Paris.
