Sounder at Heart Archives for January 2008
Earlier I covered the concern over Ljungberg's good lucks, and the legitimate concern over his
health. As the rumors seem more and more likely to be true, it also seems equally likely that
Freddie will be one of the team's Designated Players - yes I'm still hoping for another. The latest
batch in the criticism [.
The Puget Sound SportScape is intended to be a series of stories about the changing dynamics of the
sports entertainment dollar in the Greater Puget Sound. After several decades as a three sport
town, our landscape is changing. Sports fans are losing the Sonics, gaining Sounders FC, the
economy at best isn't great.
As the Sounders FC world waits to see what 4-7 players will be announced prior to the expansion
draft, and I wait on my editor to get back to me regarding my recent interview of Bob Aylward, the
Seattle Mariners Executive Vice-President of Business Operations I thought I would bring you a
little bit of [.
Ljungberg, obviously is the heavy. With two separate sites and two separate sources. I've written
much lately. Freddy Montero is another quality player rumored to be coming to the Rave Green kits
next year. GoalSeattle had it on October 12th. Today we find out that via another Spanish language
site that this [.
There is bound to be backlash at literally ANY Designated Players signing, but I'm a bit surprised
at the amount that the possibilities of Freddie Ljungberg and the response around the net. This
concern is both genuine and concerning. The genuine concern is over his health, because there are
serious questions about it, questions that [.
So many euro footie fans express desires for the mythical single table (Setting the Table shows the
league as if it were). They like how the standings would look, they would be simple and remind
everyone of the EPL, etc. These dreams of a single table are generally expressed by the same people
If you've been missing my posts for a week is because I spent a weekend out in Ocean Shores, the
aspiring Atlantic City of the West. My mother-in law and I are shortly ready to get to work on our
Sounders FC quilt For those looking for soccer only, this post ends now I also went to an [...]
This is two fold really, the first is that UEFA is coming out and supporting salary caps in its
leagues in order to contain costs. Think of how many 4th Forwards on top European clubs might come
available in MLS if this kind of move is undertaken. There is also major indebtedness around Europe
While like everyone who reads this blog I will be paying attention to the USA hosting Cuba and
likely locking in our advancement to the next round, I will be doing something just a bit different
today as well. I will be watching matches looking for those players who could make an impact in MLS
I pulled this in from a sidebar posting because I wanted to be able to get feedback. Let's be
honest, the beer selection at Qwest isn't the best due to the exclusive nature of the Budweiser
relationship with First and Goal, or the NFL. But the inBev purchase of Budweiser might help us
here in the [.
It started with British tabloids like the Sun with their rumoring of 150,000 Pounds a week, or
about 12 Million Dollars a year. We all scoffed, and yet still our hearts got a little flutter of
hope. Seattle is being connected with one of the top 20 players in the game. A [...]
Well, GoalSeattle's teaser about Freddie Ljungberg of Swedish National Team and Arsenal fame just
blew up onto the net big time. Ives has a second source. So the talks are likely. Maybe the ability
to transfer on a "free" is part of way Freddie hasn't played so far this year? Is it
