Thinking real hard about going down to the charity match. Got to check with a buddy to see if he wants to go.

Seattle picked up some good scandinavian players this offseason. They will be strong at midfield again. Backline's improved, forward is a mystery right now. They took a gamble on Eddie Johnson, but a lot of the coaching staff has worked with him before and really wanted him. Goalkeeper still out. You really don't replace a Kasey Keller.

Sexy! It should smell awesome come First Kick


As for myself, I found 2011 LA Galaxy jerseys at Ross for $20 each for SWMBO and me... and this was before they released the new 2012 home kit. I knew something was up when I could find such a good deal

Seriously, you can't replace Keller.

And sorry but your FO was retarded for getting rid of Neagle (and Fucito on top of that!) for Eddie Johnson. Bad deal...

I thought Neagle and Fucito were lost to the expansion draft, but could be wrong. I agree that it sucks to loose them.

Nah that was Pat Noonan to LA. And he's been looking pretty good for us

While both Fucito and Neagle were rising players, other players they picked up are showing much stronger. The Scandinavian guys will impress. Plus it looks like Zack will be back April or May. Seattle will be strong again.

Both Fucito and Neagle would have been reserves on this side this year. Maybe not in the 18 that suits up. This way, I have a reason to watch Montreal play as they have either 4 or 5 Sounders.

Seattle's on the tellie tomorrow night in their charity shield match. Keller will be up in the TV booth. I was thinking hard about going, but now I can sit in my in my house and drink my beer, not bud light for $7 a pint.

Gawd, I'm just glad things are starting up again.

Sounders won their charity shield match against a Mexican team 2-nil tonight. Freddy Montero had two nice goals. He actually looks as if he'll start the season fit this year. He looks to be in good shape. One of the swedes we picked up this year at right back, was really good on attack, great runs, assisted from the end line on the first goal.

The team looked very good for this early. Pretty fast and good touch on the ball. Should give LA a run for the best this year.
