He's Back...

Eddie Johnson.

Oh, how you are like a joke in the US Soccer community, yet somehow, you come back almost as often as Freddy Adu when the media claims you will "turn [a] team aound".

In case you missed it, like I almost had, EJ had signed with Puebla last fall and was moving there to play, presumably because they were going to pay him more.

Well, let the joke begin.

'So, EJ walks into a Mexican club and fails a physical...'

Yeah, Eddie failed the physical in December and with nowhere left to turn for the money he wanted, he returned to MLS, only to be selected by Montreal, who then traded him to Seattle for Mike Fucito and Lamar Neagle.

At this point, I'm thinking Montreal robbed Seattle blind, but hey, they do have the ability to surprise.

Question is, are the Sounder faithful going to like this? Because I give it 2 seasons before he washes out.
