MLS teams will once again fail in the CONCACAF Champions Cup.
Why, well aside from the fact that no MLS club has managed a road win outside the US in a meaningful match, the Champs Cup will start in February. Who’s the blame? No one really, it’s the situation that has to be deal with. I hope I’m wrong with my prediction but I’m not going to hold my breath waiting for something different.
What would be nice though is to know which two MLS team will be involved. Yeah, one will me the MLS Champion, but will they go with the MLS Cup loser this year, or the Open Cup winner? How ’bout the Supporters Shield winner? If MLS really cared about this competition, they’d put a carrot out there earlier in the season for teams to know that if they do X, they’ll get some international competition next season.
