In a frustrating game that saw plenty of shots on goal, the Sounders lost 1-0 to the Galaxy in LA. The Sounders were without Clint Dempsey and The Galaxy were missing Robbie Keane, but the quality was still plenty. The Sounders had 10 shots on goal. Jamie Penedo made 10 saves. The one separating difference […]
Did you watch the video? No? I’ll wait.
A bye week is supposed to bring rest, relaxation, recovery, and resolve. But, this past bye week for the Seattle Sounders has been anything but those things. The Sounders were already expecting to miss Clint Dempsey & Marco Pappa to international duty, but they weren’t expecting Deuce to pull his hamstring just hours after he […]
I can sum up this match in 3 gifs.
Quaking in Their Boots? The Quakes are more likely to be battling for a high draft pick than they are to be battling for a playoff spot this season. Dominic Kinnear has assembled his side to defend and counter, especially on the road. San Jose will come into CenturyLink and hope to absorb the pressure […]
In their first game of the season the Seattle Sounders handled the 2014 Eastern Conference Champions New England Revolution 3-0. Granted, The Revolution were without Lee Nguyen & Jermaine Jones, but nonetheless, it was a rather impressive victory. From start to finish Seattle played a very impressive game of soccer.

A weekend without a Sounders game. It just ain’t right. The Major League Soccer schedule can be a confounding thing, even for a team that doesn’t face the rigors of the CONCACAF Champions League this season.
Well, that was a strange night. Going into their match against the goal-starved, seemingly fan-less Chivas USA, the Sounders were poised to become the first 50-point team in MLS. In fact, it looked to be a rout, given that Chivas hadn’t scored in six matches and would be playing without Cubo Torres, out on a […]
Which team should we expect to show up as the regular season segues into the playoffs?
On Wednesday, the Sounders ran roughshod over the Chicago Fire in the US Open Cup semifinal, scoring 6 goals in a blowout victory.
Sometimes you step away from your desk for lunch and return to find Twitter abuzz with news that one of your favorite players is in London finalizing a deal to move overseas.
You know when you wake up with a scratch in your throat, and your first thought is, “Crap, I hope I’m not getting sick”?
Some games teach you something. They give you an idea of a team’s quality, what they’re capable of, which direction they’re heading. Some games are 3-0 drubbings that are best forgotten with a stiff drink.
It’s a weekend of meaningless international friendlies in MLS, and the Sounders are off until a big “Monday Night Football” showdown with the LA Galaxy, so it seems like a good time for a midseason progress report.
