SEATTLE (BASN) — The Seattle Sounders FC played host to the visiting LA Galaxy on Saturday and experience some very rude behavior.

These individuals came to the Xbox Pitch at Qwest field and had their way with the place.

At times it almost appeared as if the Galaxy thought they were playing on the home field. L.A. (7-0-1) is currently on a seven-game winning streak, have scored 22 points and sit on top of the Western Conference.

Winning is something that these guys take very seriously and they played like in the entire match.

“This is one of those games where everything goes your way.

Hopefully we are going to play better games and we will get better.

We have to get better.

We are only eight games into the season and there is a lot of games left to play,” stated Galaxy Head Coach Bruce Arena.

Edson Buddle was magnificent creating space for himself, controlling the ball and finding runners coming through.

“One of the things that separates us from many other the teams in the league is that we’ve been together for awhile,” stated Buddle.

“We’ve only added four other players to the squad,” he added.

I’m not sure when the final roster for the U.S. National Team will be announced but I’m sure that the tape of this match will be sent in the morning.

“I believe that Edson absolutely deserves a spot on the National Team,” stated Landon Donovan.

It’s not something that I’m focused on at all, I’m just trying to be the best player that I can be and continue to finds ways to contribute to the LA Galaxy organization,” Buddle.

“I believe that everything will work itself out,” he continued.

It would be great to see Edson and Donovan continuing as teammates on the U.S National team together and then bring that experience back to the Galaxy organization.

Donovan had a pretty good game himself.

Some people have played an entire career and not have a game like he had.

He scored one goal and had three assists and had defenders following him all over the field.

This performance earned the L.A. captain the MLS’s Player of The Week honors.

It would be great to see Edson and Donovan continuing as teammates on the U.S National team together and then bring that experience back to the Galaxy organization.

Until that opportunity present itself, they’ll try to keep this streak alive.

The next test for the LA Galaxy will be at home on Saturday against Toronto FC.
