10:31 AM ET 02.19 | The Football Association has moved to distance itself from a growing backlash over high ticket prices for the 2011 Champions League final at Wembley, as Premier League managers called on Uefa to make a U-turn. Arsenal's Arsene Wenger, one of four managers of English teams still in the competition, called for more affordable pricing.

Supply and demand, supply and demand......

Disappointed to see Everton beat Chelsea in the FA Cup. Was hoping that Chelsea would be participating a bit longer to hopefully fatigue their squad a bit as the season continues.

Any time, any way that Chelski loses is a good thing.

This is boring. We need more stories about soccer riots and fires and bleachers collapsing.

Hey Underground- any chance you coming up to Chicago for one of the first Fire matches? The second home match this year (I believe April 4th) is against Alan Gordon's ex-club: LA Galaxy.
