Seattle Sounders vs. New York Red Bulls: Player Ratings

Home, sweet home! Back in the comfortable confines of Century Link Field, surrounded by 45,000 friends and sporting a fancy new banner, the Seattle Sounders were the team we expected them to be on Sunday. Resolute in defense, multifaceted on attack, and consistently dominant against a very good New York Red Bulls team, Seattle earned a 3-1 victory. There are still plenty of things to work on, but we are seeing players round into form and the bench depth is really carrying the day. KEEPER: Stefan Frei – 6 | Community – 6.8 Frei produced a calm, composed goalkeeping performance in which...

Seattle Sounders vs. Houston Dynamo: Highlights, stats and quotes

“They have a target on their back, maybe it’s the target right here above the crest ... teams are going to come out and press us. That’s the lesson we learned” -Brian Schmetzer The Seattle Sounders were hoping to continue a fortunate pattern of stealing a point in Houston, and after a horrendous first half they nearly pulled off just that in the second 45. The Sounders looked a step slow and far too casual with the ball as the game began, and were left in the dust as the Dynamo forced turnovers in midfield and sprung their speedy wingers for attack after attack on Stefan Frei’s...
