WVHooligan at related • 2 views

I feel in some small way that we're finally starting to 'cook with gas' on this new season. Six weeks in and we are getting to really know where most teams stand here. I had every intention of posting this yesterday but that didn't happen as you all could see.

Anyways, here are a few quick nuggets I took from this past week.

Clint Dempsey has done it again.

After leading the Sounders to a jaw-dropping rally and draw last week in Portland on a hat trick, he returned for round two to wage a comeback win in Dallas this week.

Scoring two goals and forcing an own goal from a strategic shot into traffic, Dempsey pushed his side to erase a 2-1 deficit and grab a 3-2 victory against FC Dallas, a team that went into Week 6 unbeaten.

Montreal 0-2 Seattle: Sounders’ Identity Becomes Clearer in Montreal

EPL Talk at related • 0 views

At the end of the season, Sunday's match between Montreal and Seattle may be forgotten by many of us. For the Sounders, it will go down as three points against a team that may not be going anywhere this year. But what we saw was the Sounders identity becoming a little clearer.

This is a Sounders team that in its 6 year history has been known for making all the pretty passes, but sometimes lacked the grit that was needed to win on the road, and to win when your star was not there.

The Portland Timbers were hoping to show off an improved offense to take a lead in the annual Cascadia Cup competition against the Seattle Sounders FC, and they certainly put on a show with four goals, including a brace for Diego Chara. However, the Timbers defense wasn't able to contain the Sounders FC offense and conceded four goals over the match as the teams played to a dramatic, draining 4 all draw in front of a packed Providence Park stadium.

My Trip to Columbus

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

It all started from a missed penalty. On the night of September 10, 2013, Clint Dempsey pushed a spot kick wide of the right post. Was it intentional, or was it something otherworldly? I don't know, nor do I think anyone else does, but that was a defining moment for me. I made up my mind right then and there that I was going to witness a match in "The House of Dos a Cero"

Six months ago, the original idea of going to Columbus was just about going to see a match there, talk to some people who were probably at USA-Mexico, and enjoy a long-weekend road trip.
