Read the paper’s game advance for today here. It says that Sounders FC is “wearing a swagger.”
Big game for Sounders FC, but then, they all are now. Freddie Ljungberg will miss yet another game for Seattle, though this time he is not hurt. Tyrone Marshall is one yellow card away from suspension, and so is Josh Wicks, the DC keeper.
I don’t expect Marshall to play anyway with his hamstring problem. The player to watch for United is Luciano Emilio, a scoring forward.
DC has already played 36 total games overall this year and will have played 45 before the season ends. That will be the highest total in MLS.
