NWSB Insider and Seattle Sounders writer Clinton Bell brings us his report card for the Seattle Sonders FC during the first half of the MLS season. While the injuries have been a problem, Seattle is lucky to be sitting in fourth place in the Western Conference. Top goal goes to Patrick Ianni for his mid air volley against Sporting KC. Best player so far is Osvaldo Alonso, without him, the Sounders would be in a world of hurt.

NWSB Insider and Seattle Sounders writer Clinton Bell brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recap from Saturday nights match up with the Montreal Impact. Another game without a win, and it was a devastating loss for the Sounders. 1-4 away to Montreal. The lone bright spot was a late goal a man down to Eddie Johsnon. A red card issued to Jhon Kennedy Hurtado left the Sounders shy of eleven men, and keeper Bryan Meredith just couldn’t keep the ball out of the net tonight.
