I won’t lie to ya, anytime I see something Freddie Ljungberg says I believe it to be the truth. That is unless something morally tells me not to do so but 98% of the time I take his word for what it is. Today is no different.

We know of the “issues” between Ljungberg and his club Seattle from this week where he was missing from the start of training camp. I didn’t go all crazy over them because I knew he’d eventually come out and address any rumors on his blog…and today he did just that and more.

Earlier we had heard he wasn’t going to show up to camp because of the CBA issue with the players and the league. Well now we know, because he told us so, that he’ll show up on February 1st and that he hears some interesting news about the CBA.

Based on the latest news I’ve heard from both sides,  there wont be a lock out or strike on Feb 1. So from Feb 1 I will be with my team in Seattle trying to help them become the best team in America.

Now I know he said there hasn’t been an agreement made yet but seeing something like that from him or any player that has some knowledge of what is going on with the CBA negotiations lets me believe that a deal is very close here. A player saying there won’t be a strike or a lock out is big. Yes no deal in place yet but I firmly believe one will be here by the end of the week.

Don’t worry though about me, if Ljungberg told me to jump off a bridge I wouldn’t do it.
