Realio’s Ratings: Colorado’s undefeated streak continues

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Raul and Co. denied opportunity to claim road points. The Seattle Sounders continued on the road in Colorado, a place where they hadn’t won in quite some time and … didn’t win. The final was 1-0 on what was essentially an own goal and was indicative of a messy match between two good teams playing poorly. Both teams were missing a number of players, but Seattle looked especially lost without Nicolás Lodeiro there to create opportunities, repeatedly unable to penetrate a compact Rapids defense. Sounders will rue their big chances missed...

In the previous two instances, the Whitecaps were knocked out by CPL opposition twice, being...

Canadian Championship Quarter-Final Preview: Montréal vs Forge

Rhona Wise-USA TODAY Sports A good chance at silverware with other Canadian teams on the downslope. Montréal are coming off a two hard defeats, so what better way than to get over it than in a tournament where they have a real shot to win, the Canadian Championship! The match is Wednesday, 25th of May at Stade Saputo in Montreal. Montreal need to rotate a little as this could be a great opportunity for the academy to shine. Pair it with some time for veterans and we could see a nice team. This could be Montreal’s best chance to get hardware, they have to go for...

Fans are often desensitized to the phenomena of the modern pro, we take it for granted that players can play consistently, at a high level, in such a congested schedule. Take Sean Davis in 2021, for example. The ex-captain played 35 games in 217 days, not coming off for a single minute....

Mitchell Leff-USA TODAY Sports So. Man. Teams. Interested. CF Montréal’s Djordje Mihailovic has been receiving heavy interest from abroad. That according to latest reports both in Europe and Canada. French site jeunesfooteux, has clocked over 10 teams closely monitoring him in Montreal. They include Roma, Bologna, Leverkusen, Dortmund and several French and English teams. Djordje has been on a tear for really over a year as he has been the most consistent player in MLS and the most as an American. Add a pretty great start this season as the club is top four in...

Recap: Toronto FC advances to 2022 Canadian Championship semi-finals

Trevor MacMillan/Halifax Wanderers An enthralling second half saw the Reds seal victory with less than five minutes of normal time remaining. There’s just something special about domestic cup games, isn’t there? Toronto FC left it late to punch their ticket to the last four of the 2022 Canadian Championship, as an own goal from Peter Schaale ensured Bob Bradley’s men would come away with a narrow 2-1 victory and avoid a ‘cupset.’ The Reds will now face either Forge FC or CF Montreal in the semi-finals. Tuesday’s game in Halifax was the first time in history...

Stretching the field isn’t just about straight-line speed

Stretching the field isn’t just about straight-line speed

Max Aquino / Sounder at Heart Sounders are able to stretch opponents in a variety of ways. Last week’s three-game stretch showed just how dangerous the Seattle Sounders can be in the attack. Even the loss at Colorado offered glimpses of how the team wants to operate. This team is built to stretch the field, which considering the overall team speed might seem counterintuitive. Beyond Jordan Morris and Nouhou, the 2022 Sounders don’t field a particularly fast first team. Jordan and Nouhou scare opponents but rarely break away. The team’s lack of speed extends to...

1⁄3 of the Season Complete, Has CF Montréal Proved it Belongs on the Elite Mountain?

David Kirouac-USA TODAY Sports The results suggest, yes! CF Montréal is top four in the Eastern Conference! After about a third of the season has come and gone, so we have to ask, is the team in the elite sphere of Major League Soccer? Results and stats suggest, they are. Being four points off the top and with a star striker still on the mend, it would seem to me that the club has over performed a ad. That can only be good for the rest of the season and as Mason Toye gets healthier, team chemistry should improve, making this team well positioned to compete for top...

Boy, this has been a busy stretch of matches and things have not been made any easier this past week by the Whitecaps’ health and safety woes. Unfortunately, I’m not sure how much easier it will get for the Whitecaps (as well as your predictions) on Wednesday as it will be touch and go to see who might be ready to slot back in to the lineup. Obviously, I will endeavour to post all the pertinent updates I can in this thread, but I hope you...

Letting points slip

Letting points slip

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports Sounders can’t afford to walk away from winnable games empty-handed. For the first time this season, the Seattle Sounders needed to play three league games in a week. That they won two of them and arguably played well enough to get at least a point in the other is probably a good sign. But this remains very much a work in progress. This was most obvious in the final game of the set — which the Sounders lost on the road to the Colorado Rapids, 1-0. Specifically, it underscored how the Sounders seem to be struggling to get the most out of...
