Jordan Morris made a beer ad, his buds are cracking wise

Yes, that includes Brad Evans. Jordan Morris ... bless his heart. The Seattle Sounders forward came into the league with a squeaky clean image, promptly moved in with his folks, got a dog and will never shake that image no matter how many tattoos he gets. So, you can imagine how his first beer #ad was received. Freedom Reserve is a limited edition beer proudly brewed by a select group of @BudweiserUSA veterans. This summer, Budweiser will donate $1 to Folds of Honor – a non-profit providing scholarships to families of fallen soldiers – for every case purchased. Pick up some of...

S2 helps prepare veterans for important stretch

S2 helps prepare veterans for important stretch

Brian Schmetzer sent the players to John Hutchinson’s side to knock some of the rust off before a busy few weeks. TUKWILA, Wash. -- When the lineup sheets went out for S2’s 1-1 road draw against Reno 1868 FC May 19, the inclusion of Harry Shipp, Waylon Francis and Lamar Neagle in the starting 11 raised some eyebrows. Sounders head coach Brian Schmetzer said the decision to have the three players enter into standard loan agreements was a means to get them minutes during a First Team bye week, and the players said they were glad to have gotten competitive time in. Shipp, who until...

Scouting Report: It’s now or never

Scouting Report: It’s now or never

A helping hand may come from this week’s opponent in Seattle’s quest to turn their season around. What You’ll Watch The Seattle Sounders return to the pitch after a week off and will host Real Salt Lake Saturday night at CenturyLink Field. This will be the first of a two game series between these two Western Conference foes. Salt Lake is currently sitting in ninth place of the West with a record of 4-6-1 (13 points in 11 games played; 1.18 ppg) while the Sounders still sit second from bottom in the West with a record of 2-5-2 (eight points in nine games played; 0.89 ppg). The last...

Sounders travel to Sacramento for 4th Round of US Open Cup

Sounders travel to Sacramento for 4th Round of US Open Cup

They could face the Timbers in Round of 16 if both teams win. Separated into regional groups of four, there was a danger that there would be another tiring Cascadia matchup between Seattle and Portland in the first round of US Open Cup action with MLS clubs. Fortunately that draw did not occur. Seattle Sounders FC will travel to Sacramento Republic FC on June 6 to start their 2018 Open Cup campaign. The winner of the match at Papa Murphy’s Park will go on to face the winner of the Portland Timbers vs. San Jose Earthquakes game. The draw to determine who hosts that match will be on June...

When DeAndre Yedlin comes home, he drives around in a Rolls Royce

When DeAndre Yedlin comes home, he drives around in a Rolls Royce

It seems to suit him. All the way up until he left the Seattle Sounders to chase the European dream, DeAndre Yedlin was known for driving around in a hand-me-down Subaru with more than 250,000 miles on it. Oh how times have changed. Back in town for the English offseason, the now Newcastle right back paid a visit to Sounders headquarters in Pioneer Square. While he was there, Steve Zakuani made sure to let everyone know that Yedlin is driving around Seattle in what appears to be a Rolls Royce Ghost, a car that retails for more than $310,000. I remember when DeAndre was humble and used to...

Sounders’ injury problems are worse than you imagined

Sounders’ injury problems are worse than you imagined

Toronto can’t really sniff the problems the Sounders have had, and SKC is disgustingly healthy. If it seems like the Seattle Sounders has bad luck and is injured more than everyone else, it is because they are. The Sounders are underperforming expectations for plenty of reasons this year, and while the team they are able to field should be playing better, it does not change the fact that injuries are a big reason why. Seattle and Toronto FC, the MLS Cup finalists two years in a row, both are off to incredibly slow starts this season. TFC earned seven points in their first nine matches...

Realio’s Ratings: Svensson shows his tactical flexibility, endurance

Realio’s Ratings: Svensson shows his tactical flexibility, endurance

Nouhou and Svensson provide a spark, but team fails to ignite. After playing three games in eight days, it’s nice to take a breath. Seattle tied a good Columbus team at home and went to Toronto four days later to beat the best team ever. Then just four days after that they travelled to take on an in-form Portland team, and the combination of injuries, 100-degree heat, and fatigue was too much. The 0-1 loss was disappointing as it came on a late defensive mistake from a Seattle team that had been stout all match prior. There isn’t too much to take from this game. Again, the Sounders were...
Math may be the Sounders’ biggest fan

Math may be the Sounders’ biggest fan

Advanced metrics think that Seattle is an average team that is underperforming, even with all these injuries. Nine games into the season, sitting a single rung above last, the Seattle Sounders clearly have strong issues. They cannot remain healthy, which is compounded by a roster that is now down to guys who shouldn’t be getting starts at forward, even if they can play there as substitutes. It’s the Dire Days all over again, and yet, the maths like the team. Whether you check 538, Sagarin, or American Soccer Analysis the result is the same — the Sounders should be in the middle of the...

Sounders 2 steal road point in anemic affair

Sounders 2 steal road point in anemic affair

The Tacoma side came back to win their second road point of the season in Reno. The backline of Seattle Sounders FC 2 got off to a rough start against Reno 1868. Fransisco Narbon and Waylon Francis in particular began the game undisciplined positionally which allowed Reno to slice through the S2 defense with ease for the opening 30 minutes. Reno should have opened the scoring in the 5’ when Antione Hoppenot got in behind the defense and in miles of space whiffed from 5 yards out on a solid early cross sent in from the left side. Despite the poor defense S2 also got an early chance when...

Sounders best chance for forward help may be in Sacramento

With limited roster options Seattle could look to forward Cameron Iwasa and his five goals in USL action. As the Seattle Sounders injury report continues to grow there is much concern for how they can score goals. The defense is more than sound, whether in a 4-2-3-1 or a 5-4-1. That 1 is a problem. The current options are Clint Dempsey, Lamar Neagle and maybe Henry Wingo. President of Soccer Garth Lagerwey continues to say that the club is targeting a Designated Player and another player using Targeted Allocation Money. That would use both open senior roster spots. That leaves one* reserve...

S2 at Reno 1868: Gamethread

S2 head to Reno hoping to steady the ship Last weeks loss was a tough one for Seattle Sounders FC 2 but they need to refocus quickly and try to get a result in their second ever trip to Reno. Last season Reno 1986 were one of the top teams in the western conference but they look to be a bit more pedestrian this season. Even though it is early in the season still, S2 are quickly sliding out of the playoff picture and must start to get some results, even just draws, away from home. Though they will have to put their other trip to Greater Nevada Field, where they lost 6-0, this is a game where...

Once again, a Liga MX Club is interested in Roman Torres

Once again, a Liga MX Club is interested in Roman Torres

The transfer window in Mexico opens on June 14 and closes September 5. It would not be another normal Seattle Sounders season, without a rumor about a former club or Liga MX team interested in Roman Torres; Pachuca, Pumas UNAM and Millonarios have been linked to the center back in the past few years. Now, after getting in contact with various sources, I was able to confirm “Los zorros” are not only interested in the Panamanian but are also willing to make a considerable investment in upgrading their backline. Atlas FC will have a substantial economical surplus after transferring Milton...
