Here’s Buddle on his perspective on last season considering the Galaxy were winning without him:
“It was kind of bittersweet .. Last year I did a lot of dirty things – dirty running we call it, to position myself, to win second balls, to hold the ball up so other players can run on. I just had to take the bitter with the sweet; I’ll take the wins over the goals. .. In the past I’ve probably been a little more selfish, wanting to score goals, but now I put the team first and I appreciate that concept of the game more.”
And Buddle said he’ll start smiling more soon anyway:
“I’ve always been quiet, more reserved, maybe I’m trying to hide the braces and stuff. I get them off next week so hopefully I’ll look a little bit more excited.”
