NWSB insider and Seattle Sounders FC blogger Josh D tells us his five looming questions about the rough upcoming stretch for the Sounders. Can the team compete with the Elite teams in the leage like Sporting KC and Real Salt Lake? When is the big 4 going to get some significant time on the pitch together? And last but not least, Is Freddy Montero leaving during the summer transfer window?
NWSB Insider and Seattle Sounders FC blogger Chris Anderson reports in on the off week for the Sounders FC. They apparently took the day off from normal training to hold the first ever Sounders FC Dodgeball Championship. On another side note, here is the goal video by Osvaldo Alonso scored in last-night’s game against Cal FC. What a cracker!
Clinton Bell one of our Seattle Sounders bloggers shows us his list of 5 players that he wishes could still go out every weekend in the Rave Green and give it their all for the Sounders! It starts in the booth with Arlo White, then Kasey Keller, Dave D’errico, Nate Jaqua, Freddie Ljungberg, and Sebastien Le Toux.
Seattle Sounders FC blogger Jason Green reports that the Sounders midfielder Erik Friberg is leaving to return to Sweden. But the Sounders added defender Marc Burch, formerly of D.C. United, in the re-entry draft this week. In the re-entry draft the Sounders also lost Nate Jaqua. After a solid season this year Seattle has high hopes from last season.
Jason Green reports the Seattle Sounders will never truly replace Kasey Keller in goal, but they’ve found someone they hope can fill his now retired shoes. Michael Gspurning is 30 years old and a tall keeper at 6’5″ and has played for the Austrian national team as well as in the top Greek league for the last 5 seasons. Sigi Schmid likes his new keeper.
