The Sounders have completed their first training session of the new year. No big news, but we got to talk with coach Sigi Schmid and some of the old and new faces.
Here was Sigi's overview assessment of the first day:
Always the first day everybody is going to come out with a lot of energy and enthusiasm, and the guys who have done work will feel pretty good tomorrow, and the guys who haven’t done a lot of work are going to wake up tomorrow morning and say, ‘What did I do yesterday? Was I crazy or what?’
I thought it was good, I thought the spirit was good, I thought the intensity was good. Everybody showed up to play.
I'll report back with some of that through the afternoon.
