Seattle Sounders vs. LA Galaxy: Player ratings

Seattle Sounders vs. LA Galaxy: Player ratings

Solid and organized, Stefan Frei earned the clean sheet and MOTM in the LA draw. Going into LA on a five-game unbeaten streak while the opponents were on a five-game losing streak gave us pretty high expectations. While the defense had a pretty good game, the offense failed to put any goals on the board and the game ended a mundane 0-0 tie. The Galaxy aren’t a great team, but with the bump in organization from legendary ex-Sounders coach Sigi Schmid, they were able to hold off a Seattle team that looked a little better over the course of the match. In a vacuum, that was a good result, but...

MLS All Stars vs Real Madrid, live stream: Game time, TV schedule and lineups

FS1 and Univision are carrying the match that will eventually feature Stefan Frei. The MLS All Star Game is in its 13th straight year featuring a group of the league’s best taking on an international club. In 2017 it is Real Madrid that flies to Chicago to get their marketing buzz against captain Bastian Schweinsteiger and a bunch of World Cup veterans. Stefan Frei is the only Seattle Sounders player that made the roster. He is Tim Howard’s only backup and so should see 30-45 minutes in the second half. As is typical in All Star Games you should expect heavy squad rotation and no...

Frei, Sounders play Schmid, Galaxy to 0-0 draw

CARSON, Calif. (AP) — Stefan Frei had four saves for his seventh shutout of the season and the Seattle Sounders played Los Angeles to a 0-0 draw Saturday night in coach Sigi Schmid's return to the Galaxy. Schmid was hired Thursday after the Galaxy (6-10-5) fired coach Curt Onalfo just 20 games into his first season. Schmid coached Los Angeles from 1999-2004, winning the Supporters Shield and MLS Cup in 2002. He coached the Sounders from their MLS inception in 2009 until he and the club mutually parted way on July 26, 2016. Seattle went on to win the MLS Cup. Brian Rowe had two saves; it was...

The Sounders goalkeeper also discusses what it’s like to watch the game unfold from the stands.

Speaking with reporters after practice Monday, Frei referenced the need to build off the six points they picked up last week. “I've said this before, if you're trying to get the train rolling, you’ve got to do it at home first....

Sounders defeat DC United 4-3 after incredible second half comeback

They might have been down 2-0 at half, but the Sounders still came out on top If ever three points were there for the taking, this was the match. Thanks to the Gold Cup and injuries, however, the Seattle Sounders came into Wednesday’s home match against DC United with a depleted squad, and a last minute injury to goalkeeper Stefan Frei took another starter out of contention. Tyler Miller made a rare MLS start as the Sounders looked to turn their first post-Gold Cup break match into a win at home. Despite an incredibly poor first half in which they came out flat, conceded three goals in...

Stefan Frei wants a different kind of All Star Game

The Sounders goalkeeper was honored to make the roster, but wishes the format was very different. TUKWILA, Wash. — After being named to his first ever MLS All Star Game roster, Seattle Sounders goalkeeper Stefan Frei has mixed feelings about the competition. He’s honored to be picked by coach Veljko Paunović, but Frei also recognizes that the format the game is played in is far from ideal for the league. He said he was a “little surprised” considering the Sounders’ 2017 season so far, but that he is “excited for the opportunity to play against one of the best teams in the...

Stefan Frei selected for MLS All-Star game against Real Madrid

Frei was a coach’s pick by Fire skipper Veljko Paunovic. The Seattle Sounders almost escaped the MLS All-Star Game this year but coach Veljko Paunovic called on Stefan Frei to be the backup keeper in the “friendly” against Real Madrid. Frei will backup fan vote starter, Tim Howard, and likely will play the second half against the UEFA Champions League winners. Since 2012, the two selected keepers have split the halves evenly. The All-Star game is in Chicago on August 2 at 6 pm, a Wednesday. Frei will likely be available for the Saturday matches on each side of it. Seattle plays in...
