Yup. I don't see Leonardo lasting the entire season, or atleast starting Ronaldinho all season. The dude is just a shell of his former self. I remember back in the day when he used to chase the ball and defend. Sure he's got some cute moves, but damn he's a liability out there.

Good call. We were REALLY late for the Chelsea/Inter match, and missed most of the first half, including Drogba's goal. We got to the Rose Bowl a little before game time, and didn't park until a half hour later. Oh, then we had to walk over a mile to the stadium. So yeah, good idea to go early.

4 p.m. - SoccerFest opens at Lot H (live music, booths, and entertainment)
6 p.m. - Stadium gates open to the public
***Please plan to arrive by 6 p.m. to avoid traffic delays and to take advantage of the opportunity to enjoy a picnic or tailgate on the Rose Bowl grounds or adjacent golf courses.***
8 p.m. - KICKOFF
Over 85,000 people are expected to attend this match. We encourage you to consider the Metro Gold Line or Shuttle Busses from Old Pasadena in lieu of parking at the Rose Bowl.

the Bowl is going to be a mess. I would strongly encourage everyone to park in old town and take the shuttles. Of course you can drink more this way too.
