Sounders vs. Nacional: Talking points

Sounders vs. Nacional: Talking points

Jordan Morris and Danny Levya both had performances worth feeling good about. Preseason is primarily about two things: Working up to full fitness and avoiding injuries. In that sense, the Seattle Sounders have done just fine so far. But if you’re the type of person to read into results, Wednesday’s 2-0 loss to Uruguay’s Nacional in front of a sparsely populated CenturyLink Field crowd was a bit of a downer. The Sounders didn’t necessarily look bad despite giving up goals relatively early in both halves, but they were nothing like inspiring. That was perhaps predictable in this one,...

Sounders unlikely to add ‘splashy’ Designated Player this year

Sounders unlikely to add ‘splashy’ Designated Player this year

Sounders GM Garth Lagerwey suggests the team is still looking to add one more TAM-level player soon and potentially another in the summer. There’s a pretty good chance that the Seattle Sounders will make a signing before the close of the Primary Transfer Window on May 7, but don’t hold out much hope for an expensive Designated Player anytime in 2019. Echoing statements he’s made earlier in the offseason, Sounders GM & President of Soccer Garth Lagerwey reiterated that he was happy with the state of the roster — especially with Jordan Morris’ return to health — and that he...

JOETv is carrying the match at 7:30; watch with us. It’s the only home match of preseason. This friendly against Nacional of Uruguay gives the Seattle Sounders a warmup against Nicolas Lodeiro’s boyhood club and the opportunity for CenturyLink Field to work through any issues with their new value menu. The likely opening day starters should not be expected to get much playing time. To quote Brian Schmetzer it is a “work day”, so they are able to play, but not a full game. They are being prepped for the March 2 season opener against FC Cincinnati (yes Cinci, that’s in Seattle and...

Sounders fully committed to Henry Wingo at fullback

Sounders fully committed to Henry Wingo at fullback

Entering his third season, Wingo may finally have a position. TUKWILA, Wash. — Now entering his third season, Henry Wingo is still in search of a role where he can settle into the MLS level of competition. The roles he’s played are almost as varied as the teams upon which he’s played. He’s been a box-to-box mid, a defensive mid, a winger and even dabbled at right back. The Seattle Sounders now see a future for him as a right back, primarily. No longer is it an experiment, instead it is more of a concerted project. To this point his known preseason minutes included two appearances...
