It's the kind of game the fans love and coaches
hate.

What are some of your guys' scores so far? I'm at 26 which I'm assuming is middle of the pack this week ... with Feilhaber to play.

If my slide rule is properly calibrated, I'm at 62.

And yeah...awesome game. Really wondering what NYCFC looks like when they get healthy and Pirlo and Lampard are integrated into the team.

I'm at 52 and have Feilhaber and Anibaba going for KC tonight.

Well, I've got two words for that. Go Whitecaps!

You might jump into the Top 5, Ben.

and Bob, you'll be passing me for 2nd in the AAPL.

I didn't do it exact, just did some quick estimates going through the Top 25, looks like I probably won't stay in the Top 10 but should still be 'around' there ...

And by the way- no offense Bob! Given SKC's games in hand, it makes sense for this FCD fan to cheer for VWFC victory tonight. The West is insanely competitive this year, and I have to tip my cap to what Vermes has done this year. They've got a real chance to win the West despite injuries and defections. I definitely underestimated Spork going into this year.

2 more cents...as international sides go, Italy is high on the hierarchy of teams I loathe. That said, man, I love watching Giovinco play.

I underestimated them too. My KC players are recent additions. But the games in hand and recent performances make KC players very appealing. Nemeth has been a big surprise and if Dwyer starts scoring KC will go far.

Hey Ben, as a die hard Germany fan, I would rather lose to any team other than Italy. I would rather lose to San Marino or Qatar than lose to Italy.

The 1982 final was a nightmare, but losing 1986 to Maradona was almost as bad.

I was born in Berlin, so Italy winning in 2006 in Berlin was no fun for me either. That was probably the only time I have ever rooted for France.

Bob, the bundesliga is coming back to the U.S. which is
awesome. Watch out for Bremen to make a comeback, they
had a rough start last season but they will be looking to start
strong this season. Bayern Munich is always a top team and
should be the favorite but hopefully there will be some other
contenders too, can't wait to see the matches finally back on
fox and fs channels. Visited the Weserstadion during the 06
World Cup and plan to go there again to see a Bremen game
someday.

For me it goes:

Mexico
Italy
Argentina
CONCACAF teams overly-reliant on gamesmanship (basically, all of Central America)
France

Ghana should be up there, but honestly, they're plucky and offer up a mostly honest offering since 2006. Am I missing anything?

El Salvador, of course, is the worst in the CONCACAF category, and this video epitomizes the raison d'etre of La Selecta- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9GhSoAZhdjY
