Happy Fourth of July everyone! We’re about two hours from kickoff here at the lovely Home Depot Center. It’s a beautiful day in Southern California, clear and sunny without being too hot.
Here’s a look at the stadium from my view. I’ll post the gameday lineups here when they’re available. Until then, feel free to offer your pregame thoughts in the comments section.
If my eyes aren’t deceiving me, it looks like majority owner Joe Roth is down next to the field talking to Chris Henderson. It would make sense…
I can determine that Seattle will be wearing green shorts and blue socks from the warmups, no word on the tops yet (they wore blue in the win here last year).
Here are the lineups:
Sounders FC starters: GK Kasey Keller, D James Riley, D Jeff Parke, D Tyrone Marshall, D Leo Gonzalez, M Patrick Ianni, M Peter Vagenas, M Freddie Ljungberg, M Steve Zakuani, F Pat Noonan, F Fredy Montero
Sounders FC reserves: GK Terry Boss, D Zach Scott, M Nathan Sturgis, M Mike Seamon, F Nate Jaqua, F Sanna Nyassi, F Miguel Montano.
LA Galaxy starters: GK Donovan Ricketts, D Sean Franklin, D Omar Gonzalez, D Gregg Berhalter, D Todd Dunivant, M Landon Donovan, M Chris Birchall, M Juninho, M Michael Stephens, F Edson Buddle, F Tristan Bowen
LA Galaxy reserves: GK Josh Saunders, D A.J. DeLaGarza, D Leonardo, M Chris Klein, M Alex Cazumba, F Alan Gordon, F Jovan Kirovski
