Michael Bradley Quote

"On turf, it’s about playing off second balls, tackles, interceptions, loose balls," Bradley said. "It’s not a day for putting together a million passes and necessarily playing through the midfield. It’s about putting good balls forward and moving your lines."

"its not fun being traded, i thought i worked hard enough and left enough for the club for hopefully wanting them to want to want me... a lot of factors were the reasons for the trade which is part of the business and you understand that in the job.

"I was bummed too, but they didn't see me in their plans apparently and you just have to about it business like." - Eric Brunner

"One of my most vivid memories is my first year in 2002 going down and playing at PGE Park. At that time we were playing at Memorial Stadium so we got maybe 3000 fans and to get to be in front of I think they got 12,000 fans that game was just a surreal moment and one of the highlights of my career just seeing that many people watching soccer.
