I figure we might as well get an updated thread to discuss the season.

-CONCACAF Champions
-Blew an opportunity to win the US Open
-Slow start to the MLS regular season
-Now settled into playoff contention at 7th place
-Opportunity to parlay our CONCACAF title into a World Championship

And this weekend we get Sporting KC at home.

Dropped one against the Timbers today but the awful referees had everything do with the outcome. They were slanted toward the Portland from the opening whistle. They blatantly missed a red card and penalty for Seattle but called it on the other end for Portland. Sounders were taking on 14 players today and held their own for the most part until the last 10-15 min. It's a shame that the refs thought they needed to decide the outcome instead of the players. It could have been a great match otherwise.

None of which makes sense. You would think MLS would want the Sounders' confidence sky-high until the club WorldCup.

Of course, the official was Radford who seems to have a problem with the Sounders on an ongoing basis since the Dempsey incident.

Sounders should have traded Nouhou instead of Brad Smith. Smith actually plays good defense. Can't say that for Nouhou.

For all of his raw talent, the bonehead mistakes are inexcusable and have cost the Sounders multiple games over the years. F'n Nouhou is often heard by my family when I am watching games.

Haha....Arreaga has steadily declined each year as well. The Sounders back line is not what it had been in the past. They are playing like they are just going through the motions since they won the CCL. It's like they are disinterested in anything else.

F'n Nouhou. If you aren't going to pass it to Ruidíaz you better be damn sure your shot is going to make it to the back of the net.

Ruidiaz got screwed on his goal early. The Sounders are floundering lately. No way they should be giving up points at home. Especially to mediocre teams like Real Salt Lake. At this rate, they may not make the playoffs for the first time in their history. Hopefully they keep the streak alive.
