Sounders lose at CD Olimpia: Community Player Ratings Form

In midweek CONCACAF Champions League action, more than 3,000 miles away, with a mostly second-choice team, this was a decent result. Most fans were hoping for the away tie, but at least the Sounders put in a gutsy performance and made it a very tough game for CD Olimpia, who mostly ran out their starters. We got long looks at Aaron Kovar on the left and Cristian Roldan in the middle, as well as Jimmy Ockford and Darwin Jones. Captain Zach Scott and veteran Gonzalo Pineda were there to hold the team together. Marco Pappa made his return to the team as a sub and had 20 minutes to do Marco...

Marco Pappa among split-side group traveling to Honduras for CCL

Trip to Olimpia will be spread out over two days. Although there wasn't a full list of traveling players given to the press, Seattle Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid did give one somewhat surprising name: Marco Pappa.

Sounders welcome Marco Pappa back to training

Sounders GM Garth Lagerwey says team is more focused on getting Pappa back into the right mental space. A day after being cleared to rejoin team activities, Marco Pappa officially returned to Seattle Sounders training on Thursday. When he'll actually start playing in actual games is another question, entirely. Although Pappa was apparently allowed to work out while he was in his league-mandated substance-abuse rehabilitation program, the reality is that the midfielder has not actually trained in more than a month. And even if he was up the physical challenge, the Sounders appear to want to...
