Ok, so it isn’t like Eddie Johnson turned in his transfer request to the Seattle Sounders. But still, when a player tweets a fan of another team saying he would like to play for that team and said team just happens to be in the same league, it’s definitely news.

Thierry Henry would actually be a good pairing for Johnson. Henry could float back towards the ball while Eddie makes his runs into the box. The Frenchman’s passing ability combined with the American’s aerial threat.
Just something to think about.
Also, this might be very poor timing on Johnson’s part. Seattle just lost their other starting striker, Fredy Montero earlier today.
