    Hi Michael,

    I hope you read this before you do another champions league bit.

    I’m getting a bad vibe from the CONCACAF web site.
    Checkout how they laid out the bracket.

    Notice how they place LAFC above us in our box?
    Look at at the other three quadrants. Why does our flow chart differ?
    Why are we below LAFC?
    Psychological games by the soccer gods.

    I’m predicting team referee will be a huge factor and we’ve already lost.

    I hope I’m wrong.

    Guide me through the darkness Michael.

    I am the light you are looking for!

    Whitecaps were meant to be the home team in the second leg, that would have them as the top team, but due to more scheduling issues for BC Place they have to be on the road in that second leg, making LAFC the first listed team as the ‘home’ side

    I see! says the blind man.

    The all knowing Michael, a soccer god of another kind.

    You always do good work, thanks.
