This is certainly an issue for FIFA and all governing football bodies and while it could be an issue at Euro 2012, it will certainly be an issue next season in the Premier League.

Sporting Kansas City's dismantling of the New England Revolution was a study in how to make full use of a man advantage, as their attack punished the 10-man Revs on their way to a 3-0 drubbing at Livestrong Sporting Park.

In a weekend where not every team that enjoyed a man advantage could make the most of it, Sporting KC provided a textbook example of how to stretch a team open and break down a short-handed side.

Frame it however you'd like, but the two recognized supporters groups will be facing off against each other on the pitch at Gillette on July 21st for the right to raise the Supporters Cup.
