    Just read that Paul Allen is interesred in buying Chelsea and has met twice with their lawyers.



    Can you post that article?

    That would be such a great thing for MLS and Chelsea fans. Allen is the type of owner to hire a manager and give him time to develop a roster to win. Opens a lot of avenue's for the relationship between the two.

  • Personally I would like to see Chelsea lose their sugar daddy and return to mid table mediocrity like they used to be. Definition of a historically middling club that won the lottery.

    Looked like Colorado gave up after the first 10 minutes of the match. That was about as easy as it gets for a win. Sounders moved up the table ahead of RSL and the TImbers.

    When 3 of the 4 goals scored are from simple cutbacks you know they are a bad team. They didn't mark anyone in the box...

    Bruin hasn't been playing as much since Ruidiaz came on (for the right reasons). Thus probably why he's off form. I'd rather Ruidiaz play than Bruin. Ruidiaz is quicker and more of a threat than Bruin.

    Yikes. At least Ozzie, Rodriguez, and Marshall are in there. Depth of the Sounders is better than Dynamo. So there is that. Why aren't the guys named above playing? Is it national team commitments?

    Let's cross our fingers he doesn't pull his hammy walking to his car this morning.

  • Nice win. I love it when Bruin is on form. Heart attack moment when Lodeiro got hurt but he looks to be okay.

    We need 1 more point to clinch a play off sport or if LA Galaxy lose any of their games.

    Please make this happen! Apparently Liga MX has suspended relegation.

    If we want to be the best, we have to beat the best. I wonder if they would allow relegation/promotion and if there would be a salary cap.

    If anything it would force the badly run franchises to get their crap together, get their hands in their pockets or die.

    If it happens, I feel like the Sounders may meet their potential. 40-70,000 at home games with probably sizeable away crowds. In turn not being limited by salary cap, less EPL snobs due to legit quality players and teams in the league.

    This would be incredible.........and really the only way relegation would work, because the second division clubs in both countries would still have the appeal needed to keep attendance up by playing each other.

    I've been against relegation for MLS, because I don't think the smaller clubs would survive with only 5k fans showing up to 2nd division matches for possibly years and years. But this changes the game IMO.

    I wonder what Mexican fans think of this idea?

    I'm guessing its inevitable at some point and the Mexicans will get a crap load of tv money. The Mexicans next biggest target market was expats in the US, and in the NFL/NBA its Mexico.

    In Europe its heading towards a closed shop Champions League. Really just a matter to time before the big clubs tell UEFA to do one. Unfortunately being a Celtic fan we're on the outside looking in and other previous giants like Ajax, Porto are on the same boat unless they did a rival Atlantic league. Either that or the Portuguese/Spanish leagues become Iberian, Germany merges with the dutch, Austrian, Belgium etc, England becomes a British league etc.

    Yeah that 2nd half was brutal, it's like the clubs went into their locker rooms at halftime and switched uniforms.

    But no Lodeiro, Smith or Ruidiaz, I'll take it..............clinched playoff spot and have a chance still to get into a first round bye. Pretty damn incredible for where this club was two months ago.

  • Great job clinching with several key players out! I'm glad its stress free and not coming down to decision day.

    Rodriguez is really coming on form, I think he's a 70 minute player then gets gassed but if he can stay productive and healthy it could be important for the play off run.

    Lets try and go for the bye now.

  • Roldan and Frei are under paid. Torres is overpaid this year and likely gone. Waylon Francis is a head scratcher.

    Hope we didn't have to pay Wolf Eikrems full salary.

    This is Francis's 7th or 8th year in MLS, so my guess is we have to pay him a veteran salary, even though he's not worth 200k.

    Torres is gone, because Kim has shown he's now a better CB anyway. I also think V-Rod is over paid for the amount of time he misses every year due to injury.

    I'd love for him to stay, but his salary doesn't warrant his production and availability.

  • Seattle comes from behind to beat San Jose, Sporting KC beats LAFC, and Colorado beats FC Dallas. All that means Seattle finish #2 in the West and will skip the knockout round of the playoffs. And in more good news for Sounders fans, the Galaxy lose to Houston and will miss the playoffs.

    Yeah, I was bummed about the own goal, then we tied it and so did Colorado. I saw time ticking away and was lamenting missed opportunities. Then the boys played great ball around the box and scored the winning goal. Colorado adding the go ahead goal added relief.

  • I read last night that the Sounder's chance of even making the playoffs in June was 1.6%............and chance of getting the second seed was almost 0%.

    This truly is one of the most remarkable sporting runs and achievements of my lifetime. Let's hope this crazy momentum carries into the playoffs so we can truly witness this special piece of soccer history with a trophy.

    Seattle's recovery has been solid though.

    That said.. the Sounders seem to be the best team in the West and should be the favorites. Their poor start was duly overcome.

  • That was crazy that we got that last minute goal and results all went our way towards the last couple of minutes.

    I think we really needed that bye. The team hasn't been rotated that much and has looked a bit tired, especially later in games.

    Glad Galaxy didn't make the play offs. LA seem like a bit of a mess and I guess Zlatan is likely gone.

    I think we can win the west...i'd prefer not to play KC away if possible and Portland as it is unpredictable. No one else worries me too much. This team seems to do well bunkering down away from home in the play offs though.

    I really want NY and Atlanta out. If they go out and we win the west, I think we host?

    They were in last place with 12 points at the half way point of the season and had less than a 2% chance at even making the playoffs.

    They then went 14-2-1 over the second half of the season, which is the best half season in MLS history, and finished in 2nd place with 59 points.

    Someone saying that is one of the most remarkable runs they've seen seems pretty fair to me. Seems more fair than describing that run as "solid" IMO.

    Si's a closet Euro soccer snob, so he had to make sure we kept our fervent excitement in check, and to not get TOO excited over the Sounders run.............after all, it's just the MLS.

  • Ruidiaz added the spark that turned the season around for the Sounders. They had struggled to score on consistent basis until they brought Raul into the fold. Time to make it 3 straight MLS Championship appearances.

    Si's a closet Euro soccer snob, so he had to make sure we kept our fervent excitement in check, and to not get TOO excited over the Sounders run.............after all, it's just the MLS.


    Bottle the name calling. Your fragility is showing. I could run out streaks of all kinds of american sports teams too. Hell. I bet i go to more mls games than you do.

    Im not a closet anything. Certainly understand that a team who lost the mls final last year turning around a poor start with all that talent and making the playoffs wasn't that a big of a surprise. Its a solid run from a dominant team. Solid. One of the best ever in sports?

    Im surprised youre surprised. The parity in the MLS always left the door open for this recovery.

    Yes, what the Sounders just did was statistically one of the greatest sporting achievements of my lifetime.

    You had to swoop in and take a dump on our excitement, and cite three Euro soccer achievements that really had nothing to do with what the Sounders just did........which is come from a 1% chance of even making the playoffs to snatching the 2nd seed, which statistically was less than 1% chance back in June.

    Can we be excited again? Or are we now mired in a "what Si considers an acceptable best ever sporting achievement" discussion.

  • So your opinion is law and mine is disregarded as snobby or bitter. Point out that the team finally hit its potential and thats "taking a dump" How insecure.

    Awesome Sarge. What a piece of work.

    Law? We were just excited about what an amazing run the Sounders just completed, and hopefully continue on into the playoffs.

    You're the one who decided to be some sort of wet blanket voice of reason telling us to temper our excitement, and list impressive Euro soccer achievements like "well that's nice guys, but not the same as THESE!"

    Both Chapow and I called you on it. Own it.

  • Pointing out that they played to their potential as the dominant team is a "wet blanket" and makes me a euro snob?

    No... its not some great run. Thats my opinion. Its a really good team playing at their level. I pointed out a variety of runs i thought were better, adding that it shouldn't be a surprise. They are a really good team and recovered.

    Get a grip. Why dont you own your hylerbole before "calling me out" then?

    I offered a different perspective. Deal with it without getting your feelings hurt

    After the game Schmetzer said there was no ligament damage to Marshall's knee and Roldan had an issue with his hip. No word on their availability for the second leg.

  • Well..............we got a road goal, that's about as much lipstick as I can put on that pig of a match.

    Marshall's one of the toughest players in the league, so hopefully he can go, cause we desperately need him for the 2nd leg.

    I've watched the Roldan VAR non call, and I go back and forth on it. Goalie didn't make contact with the ball, and did make contact with Roldan, so idk, seems like it should have been called.

    Moral of the story, win 1-0 Thursday.

  • Could be better, could be worse. It wasn't 1-3 but that first half it could have been. Played a bit better 2nd half. We tend to do better against them in Seattle.

    Losing Marshall and Roldan is a bit of a disaster though. I hope Smith is back and Shipp starts (if Roldan is out). Torres will have to do at cb.
