United Abroad, and the Abroad coming to United

Logan's Revenge has preliminary groupings for the MLS/FMF league, while being careful to state that they are not "set in stone." DC United will be in group B, with our old friends the Chicago Fire, and new friends Club America and Moreila. According to Not Doug Logan, the preliminary list of teams were those that could "draw a crowd" so MLS Cup Champion Houston is passed over in favor of that MLS powerhouse the LA Galaxy. Classy. So DC may once again find themselves in Azteca. Yup, no bad memories there, none at all.

Remember that this is not the same thing as the CONCACAF Champions Cup, so there'll be a lot of international competition against North American opponents next year. Makes you wonder if we'll even need to schedule a friendly against a Euro-team.

I really hope that United does not schedule anymore than 1 friendly next season, and I hope that it is scheduled for no later than May 30th. Anything after that should be in a time where the schedule is way too cluttered.

DC United lost to Pumas at Ciudad Universitaria - I believe that's a different stadium than the Azteca. The altitude and smog at Azteca will probably be much less!

Oops... how on earth did I get that so confused in my head?
