Realio’s Ratings: Brad Smith runs rampant yet again

Brad Smith runs rampant yet again. Twice in four days Seattle welcomed opponents into CenturyLink Field, and both times the defense was stellar and the offense provided just enough to earn a victory. The 2-1 win over a revamped Orlando squad should have been easier, but the finishing was a bit underwhelming. While the Sounders controlled much of the match, a late defensive miscue allowed the visitors some hope at stealing a point on a brutal road trip. The defense held, however, and Seattle heads on the road having picked up six of a possible six points this week. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei...

Realio’s Ratings: Cristian hits an absolute screamer

Roldan brings his usual verve to midfield, this time against his former counterpart, and notches the goal to help bring home a point. Watching live I was pretty satisfied with a hard-fought road point against a Minnesota United team that hasn’t lost at home and is having a much-improved season. But on the re-watch, I was disappointed with the 1-1 draw. Seattle was the better team for vast portions of the match, consistently creating the better opportunities, yet they failed to put away their best chances and left without the full points.

Farmers market freshness from Bryan Meredith The role of a backup goalkeeper is a difficult one. In a way, it’s the usual role of a goalkeeper taken to an extreme. The player sees little-to-no action for incredibly long stretches of time, but needs to be called upon at any moment. The task for Bryan Meredith (pictured above) is made all the more complicated by the particular situation he finds himself in with the Sounders. Positioned behind one of the top ‘keepers in the league in Stefan Frei, and ahead of young prospect Trey Muse, game time is hard to come by at both the MLS and USL...

Realio’s Ratings: The defense struggles

Seattle Sounders travel to Los Angeles, return with first loss of season. Seattle lost their first game of the season in resounding fashion, a 4-1 beatdown from an in-form LAFC team. This match had rough performances by a number of Seattle players. With fixture congestion on the horizon, some injury concerns have arisen at the worst time, with multiple changes to the starting lineup forcing people to step up. In Los Angeles, unfortunately, Seattle rarely looked put together and were repeatedly victimized due to some appalling defensive mistakes. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei – 5 | Community...

Talking points: Curb stomped in Los Angeles

Sounders surrender early and often in 4-1 loss to LAFC. What was billed as a showdown between the top two teams in MLS quickly devolved into a one-sided affair. LAFC opened the scoring in the 12th minute, extended their lead to 2-0 shortly before halftime, grabbed their third just four minutes after the Sounders cut the deficit to 2-1 and put the game away shortly thereafter. The Sounders were probably a bit lucky to get out of this game having lost just 4-1, as Stefan Frei came up with several big saves on high-quality chances. In the end, the Sounders took their first loss of the season...
