SuperLiga groups

According to Mexican sports daily Ovaciones, Club America declined to participate in the 2008 SuperLiga and thus Pumas were added to the field.

The SuperLiga groups will be:

Group A
Chivas USA
New England

Group B
DC United
Chivas Guadalajara

America's disinterest is bad news for Chivas USA, as a Chivas USA-America match would be far easier to market than Chivas USA-Pumas.

Perhaps Club America decided that whatever potential financial upside there was to this didn't compensate for the embarassing potential of failure against the MLS sides.
Besides, they can't even beat Atlas :)

And you know if Ferreti's still in charge at UNAM, he's going to talk about how stupid a tournament this is, so Chivas USA will be playing about UNAM's reserve sides.

Tee hee, I wonder how this tastes to Tuca.

I'm so excited! Maybe I'll get to see Federico Vilar and all his wonderful hair. He's teh pretty.

This is where it all went downhill for Pachuca last year. Hopefully they'll come lose the crapiness here ... and Chivas can pick it up.
