    I'll say the opponent comes from either Mexico or CONMEBOL where we'd get a fairly well-known team like Millionarios (sp?) from Colombia or something.

    Top Euro club? Like West Ham or Villa?

    Maybe they'll get their fucking act together and follow suit with Seattle and whoever else has proper friendlies.

    Bayern
    Porto
    Inter
    Chelsea

    As much as we want to see those teams, I can't see MLSE ponying up the dosh to bring those type of teams in. My $0.02

    The problem is BMO Field is too small to pay for top teams. In Seattle, they can open up the upper bowl.

    That's part of the problem yes, but they could always add 'temp seating'.

    Seriously though, I think Boca would draw more people than Independiente, Villa, or probably any of our other friendlies.

    I agree that the friendlies don't help during a crowded schedule.

    I think the reason things shifted to South American teams last year was to get an idea of the type of football that we'd see if we made it to CONCACAF CL and to also establish contacts in that part of the footballing world. Pablo Vitti is here now because he played in the friendly last year...

    Scunthorpe!!

    I'm glad we've all got world wide soccer knowledge. But I think the GTA is still an Anglo-centric draw. Someo of those great teams in Holland, Mexico, or France may not create the buzz. Meaning English and either Rangers or Celtic would be the biggest draw. The only other huge draws would top Spanish, or top Italian clubs. Anything else, I feel, will be just another friendly.

    My $0.02 I think it will be Rangers, maybe part of the deal to take Edu, was a friendly? Not sure.
