And the MLS season is all systems go. The Los Angeles Galaxy hop up to Seattle this evening to take on the Highlighters in the opening game.
Seattle has not given up a goal or lost a First Kick yet!…which is a ridiculous stat since they’ve only played in two.
Drop all your thoughts here as the campaign gets underway. Hey Chivas fans….you’re still undefeated!
For the Galaxy, Juan Pablo Angel & Omar Gonzalez are out; Donovan Ricketts is likely to miss the match as well. (You already know how TSG feels about Ricketts).
Seattle will see Steve Zakuani confined to the bench and likely see Uruguayan Alvaro Fernandez take his place. Given Zakuani’s current form and TSG’s belief in Fernandez, that’s a solid temporary exchange.
As for the game, all about the midfield in this one. Can Seattle find their way through a Galaxy midfield that outworked and outplayed them last time they played up in Space Needle Central?
Can Osvaldo Alonso help out on Donovan–likely to be pushed up to forward in this game at the outset–and in term link through the middle?
Will John Harkes explain to us the role of the #37 car?
After the break, last time up north. Close your eyes if you’re a Sounders fan.
