Who you’ll see when Sounders face Nacional of Uruguay

Who you’ll see when Sounders face Nacional of Uruguay

Schmetzer is using rotation to build fitness, so this is who we think will get the most minutes. While the core group of likely starters is on a Saturday-Saturday pattern, the friendly against Nacional is in front of the home crowd, and it is Nicolas Lodeiro’s boyhood club. Over the preseason players have played a half or less during the midweek stretch so you should expect to see several expected starters starting the midweek friendly. But Seattle Sounders coach Brian Schmetzer can also use the 90 minutes against Nacional to get a handful of players closer to fitness and to increase the...

Sounders vs. FC Dallas preseason: Gamethread and updates

Good morning Seattle Sounders fans. It’s time for coffee and soccer. It is time for the final match for the Seattle Sounders in the Mobile Mini Sun Cup, ending their stay in Tucson, Arizona. FC Dallas is just starting their stay in southern Arizona. With two teams in different phases of their preseason the match will be an exercise in fitness and tactics, but not necessarily a measure of two teams against each other. Brian Schmetzer indicated that the Sounders are intending to get their starters onto a Saturday-Saturday-Saturday schedule so that they are primed for the home opener against...

What happened to FC Dallas this offseason?

Seattle Sounders face a Dallas team that’s gotten even younger on Saturday at 9 AM Pacific With the match on Saturday the Seattle Sounders should be sending their starting lineup for opening day out for about 65-75 minutes as they develop a Saturday-Saturday-Saturday pattern over the next two weeks. FC Dallas is also likely to use starters, but they will be young when compared to the Sounders. Dallas named Luchi Gonzalez as their new coach. Previously with the FC Dallas Academy, Gonzalez has a stable of 8 Homegrown Players signed to the First Team as of Thursday. Their DPs are between 23...

Sounders vs. Timbers: Gamethread with updates

Seattle’s third preseason match is against a rival that should be expected to content for trophies. Preseason continues with a match between the Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders. This game, at Kino North down in Tucson, should feature two sides that are giving their depth a bit of a run. The Sounders brought 14 of 16 current Tacoma Defiance players with them to Tucson, as well as two Academy kids (Drought, Fowler). Many of them will play today, as the starters will likely be on Saturday-Saturday schedules. The Sounders have lost both preseason matches to this point, while the...

What happened to the Portland Timbers this offseason?

What happened to the Portland Timbers this offseason?

Seattle Sounders face a stagnant Timbers side Wednesday, which is fine, because Seattle is stagnant too. Like Seattle, the Portland Timbers have an open DP slot. Unlike the Sounders, there were strong rumors about who they were bringing in, but they haven’t closed the deal. Portland and Seattle each have a massive hole at the top end of their roster. Both teams will probably field a B-side in their Wednesday match at Kino North (6 PM Pacific, streaming) after the Sounders had their A-team go 63 minutes against Houston on Saturday and the Timbers were down in Costa Rica for a preseason...
