Sounders Update

Chris Kissel at our sister station, PubliCola, mentioned [see UPDATE 2] that the three challenges the Sounders would face in Dallas were red cards, heat, and arrogance. In the end though, it was a blown offsides call that cost them a win yesterday.

UPDATE: From the comments, here’s another view of the goal that makes it look like Rocha was just barely onside. Either way, the Sounders didn’t look their best yesterday.


UPDATE 2: Chris mentions below that while he posted that up, he did not write it himself. It was written by SoundersNerd.

    I agree with Ben… the call was close, but likely right as Ianni kept him onsides. Le Toux will never be a great finisher and I am starting to wonder if Jaqua will ever put it all together. We simply have to finish.

    Yeah, it was closer than the replays they showed during the broadcast.

    They blew a lot of chances yesterday.

    though it does look AWSOME on my 60″ Plasma…but it is still just soccer

    Also, just to be clear, I didn’t actually write that post. I just posted it up for the guy who is acting as our new Sounders Nerd.

    Calm down, peeps. This is still an ‘expansion’ team, remember? Not getting the full three points against the worst team in the league is a bitch, but there will be rougher patches than this.

    They’ve been a little sloppy lately. I think teams have adjusted to Montero and the team is still working on finding its flow.
