  • Chad Barrett will miss Cup final with dislocated ankle.
  • MLS Cup Final is sold out. I hope the tickets get used. I was at the last one at the Home Depot Center and there was a raft of empty seats in the season ticket holder section. I’m certainly expecting a full house with the home team on the field.

Summer Friendlies in North America

Summer Club Friendlies
Opponents Venue Date
 Tottenham v San Jose  Buck Shaw Stadium, Santa Clara, CA Sat, July 17
 Cruzeiro v NE  Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, MA Sun, June 13
 AC Milan v Montreal Impact  Olympic Stadium, Montreal, CA Wed, June 02
 AC Milan v Chicago Fire  Toyota Park, Bridgeview, IL Sun, May 30
 AC Milan v DCU  RFK Stadium, Washington, DC Wed, May 26
 Juventus v Fiorentina  Rogers Centre, Toronto, CA Tue, May 25
 Juventus v RBNY  Red Bull Arena, Harrison, NJ Sun, May 23
 Fiorentina v Montreal Impact  Olympic Stadium, Montreal, CA Sun, May 23

Don’t know how well the Cruzeiro/Revs match will do as there is a full slate of World Cup matches on that date, but neither the US nor Brasil play on the 13th. The detractors of these friendlies have already been making their voices heard. As most of these are post season friendlies(for the visiting teams), the best players will be off with their national teams preparing for the World Cup, while the remainder of the best, might be inclined to rest after a busy season. I suspect only contractural agreements would have us see any of the top players not participating in the Cup. The one exception is the Tottenham/SJ match which will be after the WC.
