My connections to the Windy City are limited. I did, after all, live there for a year while I slogged it through grad school. I've still got a handful of friends there and I still get mad cravings for Italian beef sandwiches (or if I get the rare bonus, the ceviche at Topolobampo).

So I happily accepted an invitation to guest-blog for Chicago Tribune soccer beat writer Luis Arroyave while he's on vacation. Luis runs the excellent Red Card blog, and is having fellow footie scribes -- and even some players -- fill in for him while he's off galavanting. 

Of course, Luis asked me to write about the World Power Rankings, which I was only too happy to accept. It's always a good topic for debate, and an even better test of the thickness of my skin. So here's the link to my contribution. Enjoy!

And as always, this week's top 10:

1. AC Milan

2. FC Barcelona

3. Sevilla

4. Chelsea

5. Bayern Munich

6. Real Madrid

7. Boca Juniors

8. Pachuca

9. Inter Milan

10. Manchester City
