Gamethread: Sounders Host Glasgow Celtic

New, 220 comments

This is a match that doesn't count, and doesn't matter. The number one goal is don't get injured. The number two goal is learning how to play with Nkufo. The number three goal is don't get injured.

Its that simple.

There are no keys to the game. There is not a match card. This is a friendly. There will be a recap because we will see players that we have not seen much of lately.

This is a primarily a marketing opportunity for both organizations. It is an opportunity for the Scottish and Irish in the greater Puget Sound to see the Sounders go up against one of their favorites, just maybe a few of them will decide they shouldn't ignore the club right down on Royal Brougham.

Today's game is on ESPN and ESPN3.com at Noon

I will end with one simple phrase for next year

We want trophies not friendlies
