Realio’s Ratings: Nico and his shoe phone made an appearance against FC Dallas

Lodeiro assists on one and scores the other as Seattle takes down the top team in the West. Western Conference leader Dallas came into CenturyLink Field with a full, rested, and healthy team and Seattle dominated the game and left with a full three points. Other than a few hiccups, Seattle controlled the match, and the 2-1 Sounders win was justified. If not for a few unlucky bounces or good plays by Dallas, it would have been even more lopsided. Seattle is showing that when healthy, they can play with anyone. *I’m sick, so this is a shorter than normal ratings. Goalkeeper Stefan Frei...

Unlocking Raúl Ruidíaz’s potential key to fulfilling Sounders’ potential

The club wants to get Ruidiaz more touches, but not at the expense of success. TUKWILA, Wash. — Raul Ruidiaz had just 16 touches in the Seattle Sounders’ 2-1 win over FC Dallas on Sunday. It was the fewest he’s had in any of his four starts since joining the team. Sounders head coach Brian Schmetzer acknowledged that wasn’t enough following the match, but also noted Ruidiaz drew more attention from defenders. At training Thursday, Cristian Roldan agreed with the sentiment. “We need to do a better job of getting him the ball,” Roldan said. “As a striker it’s hard to get a...
