What did Freddie Ljungberg have to say about the atmosphere at BMO Field on Saturday? The Globe and Mail has some thoughts:
The Sounders are a welcomed addition to Major League Soccer and so is Freddie Ljungberg, who scored the Sounders' first goal and provided what few minutes of quality there was on the pitch. "I thought the atmosphere was great," said Ljungberg, the Swedish international who has played at Arsenal and who said he didn't mind the odd beer shower. "When I came off the pitch, some of them [fans] were yelling 'You're better than Beckham! Stay!' They were not — how do you say? — arseholes there."
They were not — how do you say? — arseholes there.
High praise indeed.
