Stefan Frei makes Sounders history in Dallas win

Stefan Frei makes Sounders history in Dallas win

Frei’s 12 clean sheets in a season is a club record The Seattle Sounders’ epic 4-0 win over FC Dallas on Sunday was big for a lot of reasons. It clinched their trip to the MLS Cup playoffs for the ninth consecutive season, got forward Will Bruin back in scoring form, and it showed that the club is fully committed to defending their first Cup title. But the result was significant for another major reason that got a little lost amongst the hubbub: Stefan Frei recorded his 12th shutout of the season, a Seattle Sounders franchise record. The Sounders ‘keeper was humble, as usual, when...

Stefan Frei’s stop of Fredy Montero wins MLS Save of the Week

Stefan Frei’s stop of Fredy Montero wins MLS Save of the Week

Let’s take a few more moments to appreciate one of the best saves of the season. Stefan Frei’s sprawling stop of Fredy Montero’s free kick last week has officially been named MLS Save of the Week. It would, of course, have been an absolute tragedy if it had failed to win. So rather than celebrate the winning of a frankly meaningless award, I’m choosing to use this news as an opportunity to watch this absolutely amazing save again. There are a few elements I’m not sure I fully appreciated when I first saw this. For starters, the deflection made this a much tougher save than it...

Was Stefan Frei’s stop of Fredy Montero’s free kick better than ‘The Save’?

Was Stefan Frei’s stop of Fredy Montero’s free kick better than ‘The Save’?

There’s a heated debate going on about this very thing. Stefan Frei makes challenging saves look simple and turns extraordinary into ordinary. When the Sounders keeper kept Seattle’s one-goal lead with a monster save just before the half, it reminded everyone just how good he can be. Fredy Montero, a Sounders legend in his own right, stepped up to hit a ball from about 30 yards out and looking to tie up the match. The Colombian striker struck a nearly perfect ball into Frei’s top corner and just like against Toronto FC an outstretched left hand kept it from going in. Wow. #SEAvVAN...

Seattle Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake: Player ratings

Seattle Sounders vs. Real Salt Lake: Player ratings

The streak is dead. Time for a new streak. We wanted a more exciting, upbeat game than the one in Dallas, and we definitely got that. Unfortunately, the continuous rain, altitude, and poor second-half play doomed Seattle to their first loss in 14 games. The Seattle Sounders had some good chances, but failed to finish. Eventually the patchwork defense allowed in goals, and Real Salt Lake won 2-0. Seattle again looked like they were in preseason mode, unable to finish numerous chances and making uncharacteristic errors in the second half. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei – 6 | Community – 6.0 It...

Sounders goalkeeper Stefan Frei, who last year became a U.S. citizen, said he strongly disagrees with President Donald Trump’s comments and tweets the past few days that were critical of NFL and NBA players. “Nothing positive comes from it, really,” Frei said.
