Radio Sounders Show: The Day United Came to Town



This week’s show looks back on the visit of Manchester United to Seattle.

There is post match audio from Sigi Schmid, Roger Levesque, Sir Alex Ferguson, Wayne Rooney, Rio Ferdinand, Ryan Giggs, Pat Noonan and an interview with Kasey Keller conducted after the Colorado match looking forward to United’s visit.

There are plenty stars to hear from so the host shuts his ‘haggis trap’ for much of it except to weigh in on the big issue of whether this was a tragedy or a night to remember.

There’s plenty of debate continuing on the stories below.

  1. Couldn’t agree more that the atmosphere, and first half play was a positive for the team and a memory to keep as a fan. Have to admit, i was surprised Sigi was as down about it as he was. i hope he wasn’t really apologizing to Mr. Roth. Your point made with Levesque’s interview was much more to the heart of what it is, and what it should be to be a Sounder.


  2. I bet Sigi was most embarrassed to lose so badly in front of Sir Alex just as much as anything. Nice Partick Thistle name drop! I used to live in some flats right across the street from that statdium. Panmure Street baby! Not the best neighborhood for a young American, or anybody really HA! Nice Glasgow memories.
