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

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...
