I was doing some reading on the new Asian Champions League format. I was surprsed that Malaysian clubs did not take part. Malaysia is one of the better legues in Southeast Asia, and I am curious as to why the AFC did not include them. I am also curious as to why this new competition does not bring in elite teams like Kashima Antlers and Dalian Shide until March. That seems rather odd. I am not sure this great new tournament is all it is cracked up to be.
