Sounders FC coach Sigi Schmid quotes Friday (via release)

Sigi Schmid – Head Coach
(On mood at practice . . .) “It’s good. The team is ready. They know it is a big game. We are looking forward to playing the Galaxy.”
(On L.A. Galaxy without David Beckham . . .) “L.A. has gotten off to a big start because Edson Buddle has gotten off to a huge start. When you score nine goals on fifteen shots on goal, that’s an outstanding strike rate; not something that many people have. He’s on fire right now. Landon Donovan came in good form after coming off his time with Everton so he was sharp. I think those two guys being sharp and the team, in their early games, they scored goals with limited chances and defensively they have been solid. They knew they were going to be without Beckham at the beginning of the season so that was never really a concern for them. They were building the team without Beckham. I don’t think David not being there has affected them at all.”
(On L.A. Galaxy defense . . .) “They play with good urgency in the box. They defend well. They have got experienced guys, a good mix of experience and new guys back there and they have a fair amount of energy. [Donovan] Ricketts has done well for them in goal. So no, it’s not really a surprise.”
