Schmid on Taylor Graham and finishing goals

I'll have more later on the Sounders-Timbers game tomorrow at Qwest.

Here's what coach Sigi Schmid had to say today on a couple of other topics:

On working on finishing around the goal: “It’s just something as we get closer to the season obviously we are going to do more and more finishing. You don’t want to do a lot of finishing and so forth when you are still in the process of doing a lot of your fitness work. So now there is a little more concentration on it. But we wanted to make it a little more like a day before game practice so that’s why we played a little bit through the goals in the middle of the field and then we just did some corner kicks and stuff.”

On Sounders FC defender Taylor Graham: “He’s not back full yet. He was at this stage before and then he went back into a game and he felt it again. So we still have to be careful with him. Right now, for me, he is still not back. Hopefully he will be back soon.”
