Molde have a chance to qualify for the Champions League next year with matches starting next month. It's great to see guys like Sean Cunningham and Josh Gatt have an opportunity to show their stuff against the best European clubs. Molde haven't gotten off to a good start in defending their Eliteserien title, but they have a good draw against Sligo Rovers. I'm really hoping they turn it on so we can see one or both of our yanks showcase their talent and hopefully get recognized by bigger clubs and, more importantly, the USMNT. What do y'all think about Molde's chances of making it to the group stages in the Fall?

Just noticed that Cunningham hasn't logged any minutes for Molde yet. Hopefully that changes soon!

Molde are very, very, very unlikely to make the UCL Champions League group stages.

O'Brien and Nordsjaelland also have a hard road since they are in the non-champions group.

Jones and Shalke will likely make it.

Kljestan and Anderlecht are already in the group stages.

Danny Brkovic and Zeljeznicar have the longest odds of all. Brkovic is recovering from a severe case of mono and likely won't play until the fall.

Molde is a decent enough team and Sligo is a perennial pushover, it'll be nice to see yanks getting the chance to play against good teams, assuming they make it to the group stage.

Fenerbache got kicked out of the UCL again for match fixing. Bursaspor is now in their spot, joins in the same round as Nord. Means Edu can get some UCL games if he goes back to Bursaspor

A big question for U.S. fans heading into the World Cup is surely on Jozy Altidore and just what is plaguing the young striker at Sunderland.
