SuperLiga semifinal: New England Revolution vs. Atlante (Your running commentary)


Good evening folks. The New England Revolution puts its unbeaten SuperLiga record on the line tonight against Mexican champions Atlante in the SuperLiga semifinal at Gillette Stadium. The winner of tonight’s match (8pm, Telefutura) takes on the Houston Dynamo in the second-annual SuperLiga final.

New England has looked sharp in SuperLiga play but will have to beat Atlante without its best defender, U.S. Olympic team defender Michael Parkhurst.

If you don’t have Telefutura, you can watch the game online at http://www.superliga2008.com/videoaudio/

If you will be watching tonight’s game, please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below. I will be watching and commenting but won’t be doing a full running commentary.

Enjoy the match.

    First of all, there was one really classless act by Atlante players when they streaked up the pitch trying to score after a New England player was down.

    Second, I don’t understand the thought process of FMF clubs or Mexican officials in saying that the CONCACAF officiating is a reason not to participate in Superliga. There are reasons for Mexican clubs to not participate in Superliga (no home or neutral games against an MLS club even if they earn it by winning a group), but the state of referees and linesmen in CONCACAF is not a reason. Who do the Mexican officials think are going to officiate at CONCACAF Champions League and at WC Qualifying? Something needs to be done about CONCACAF referees and linesmen (Atlante and Pachuca were the victims of bad calls that cost them each a goal in the semifinals), but deciding not to play in one competition is not going to accomplish anything.
