Awesome! As long as the price is reasonable.

I loved the mode in the 2007 Champions League game and I was wondering if the would release that game again this year since they didn't have a Euro game to put out. Seriously, I am pumped, I loved that mode aside from the problem with online games and the whole our roster dosen't match your's problem.

I learned so much about the other leagues doing that mode and now presumably opening it up to all teams is great.
