Realio’s Ratings: Víctor dazzles

Rodríguez brings a little magic to Seattle’s 4-1 offensive outburst against Houston. The Seattle Sounders rebounded nicely from two abysmal outings a few weeks ago and are back to winning soccer. Seattle’s second straight offensive outburst saw the visiting Houston Dynamo lose by a score of 4-1 to the good guys — no R2, no Goose; no problem. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei – 6 | Community – 7.3 Frei recovered nicely after the awful mistake against Philly and has looked calm and composed since. He only had three saves against Houston and spent much of the time directing traffic before...

Recent errors fueling Sounders as they enter final push

Recent errors fueling Sounders as they enter final push

Contentment is the enemy of success, Stefan Frei says TUWKILA, Wash. — The Seattle Sounders have outscored opponents 8-1 in their last two outings, featuring goals from five different players. Still, the club is not allowing itself to grow complacent during the international break. After Demarcus Beasley’s late goal against Seattle Oct. 8, Chad Marshall and Stefan Frei were visibly frustrated with the defensive letdown. Sounders head coach Brian Schmetzer shouldered the responsibility for the goal. “I’m going to take that one on the chin,” Schmetzer said after the match. “That...

Stefan Frei hasn’t heard from US Soccer in over a year

Stefan Frei hasn’t heard from US Soccer in over a year

Goalkeeper’s outstanding season apparently hasn’t piqued the national team’s interest. TUKWILA, Wash. — Another international break has come, and once again Stefan Frei did not hear a word from U.S. Soccer about a potential call-up. Despite having one of the greatest statistical season (seriously just give that link a read) in MLS history, Frei has had virtually no contact with the United States national team since he participated in a preseason camp two Januaries ago. Ironically, that was before he was even eligible to play for the USA. Frei became a U.S. citizen later in...

Realio’s Ratings: Lodeiro has a watershed moment

Realio’s Ratings: Lodeiro has a watershed moment

Nico Lodeiro sparkles as Sounders navigate Rapids with ease. Yes, I was kind of angsty after an ill-prepared team got kidney-punched by a meh LA team. It was a completely different Sounders team that hosted Colorado, however, with all players showing improved play. Team tactics highlighted the individuals’ talents and they looked hungry and relentless, responding with an impressive outing. The 4-0 final score was a single Seattle win, but an essential one that brightened the playoff prospects for this talented team. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei – 6 | Community – 6.8 Frei needed two saves...

Sounders vs Colorado Rapids: Full coverage

Saturday’s 1:00 PM match could answer some questions about Seattle Key Storylines for the Sounders-Rapids match Can the Seattle Sounders restart the offense after it sputtered during their double-game week? The Colorado Rapids are coached by the son of the a Sounders Legend. Can Anthony Hudson return to his birthplace and claim a victory? What will Brian Schmetzer do as he continues to lose key components due to injury? Will Stefan Frei continue his one-goal-or-less magic? Related, will Chad Marshall continue to be the Chad Marshall of the Year? How to Watch Date/Time: Saturday, September...

Playoff-eliminated teams can be the most dangerous, Stefan Frei says

Playoff-eliminated teams can be the most dangerous, Stefan Frei says

The freedom to take unconventional risks poses an added threat, the keeper says. TUKWILA, Wash. — Seattle Sounders keeper Stefan Frei said the club is taking the Colorado Rapids very seriously ahead of their match against them at CenturyLink Field Saturday. While the 6-17-6 Rapids will end their season on Decision Day, Frei said it makes them dangerous at this stage in the season. “Some of (our remaining schedule) may look past this year and say ‘it’s a done deal,’” he said. “Those are very dangerous opponents. They can afford to lose. They could care less if they lose 2-0,...

Realio’s Ratings: Seattle unable to convert in midweek matchup

Realio’s Ratings: Seattle unable to convert in midweek matchup

The streak is over. Time for a new streak. The Sounders were bound to lose again this year, but I expected a midweek game against Philadelphia to produce points. The stoppage time winner from the away team saw a 0-1 result that not only ended Seattle’s nine-game winning streak but also raised some questions about a team that had a fragile ego as recently as a few months ago. I was really generous with ratings on a few players, based on a team that played much better than the scoreline, yet somehow cannot seem to remove that last bit of doubt about it’s play. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei –...

Postgame Pontifications: Don’t worry about Stefan Frei

Postgame Pontifications: Don’t worry about Stefan Frei

The Sounders goalkeeper owns up to his mistake, but is well equipped to move past it. SEATTLE — Stefan Frei understands as well as anyone that his position has virtually no room for error. As good as he’s been over the past five seasons and as many massive saves as he’s made, he surely remembers the handful of costly mistakes even more than the countless times he’s bailed out his teammates. More than just about anyone else on the team, though, he’s always willing to own up to his errors. So it was little surprise that he made himself available following Wednesday’s loss in which...
