… US National Team forward Eddie Johnson, who joined the Sounders in a trade with the Montreal Impact on Friday, adding a veteran of 41 appearances with the Stars and Stripes…

Fantastic high-profile signing from the Sounders.

Sad to see Neagle and Fuchito go, but I’m getting excited for the new season. This will be the year Sounders fans.

Also, welcome to Seattle Eddie!

Trading always sucks, but it’s hard to read the comments under the article I linked to and realize how hard it must be for a player to come to a team in a trade against two beloved players of the fans.

So, welcome to Seattle. Bring your best, like what we expect from every one and we will love you, cheer for you in the rain and sing your name late into the night!!
