Sounders Use Unbalanced Shape To Open Passing Lanes

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

During the last meeting with Chivas USA the Seattle Sounders had trouble defending them within the 18. That problem did not occur Saturday, in fact the defense held the Goats to just six shots and or passes in the penalty area. That defensive improvement held Chivas to just one goal. What may have gone unnoticed is that in the previous match with six goals for the Sounders they had 11 Key Passes plus Assists.

Last week the Sounders helped keep some playoff hopes alive by beating the Vancouver Whitecaps, and in the coming weeks they have a chance to end those hopes with three consecutive games against the two playoff hopefuls left in the West. Today's is the first of two against Chivas USA, a pretty implausible playoff contender.

LA Galaxy Scouting Report: The Stars Come Out

Last time the LA Galaxy came to town they were far from full strength. Thanks to a combination of David Beckham's porcelain reticence to play on turf and Bruce Arena's attempt at canny lineup shuffling with another match three days later, the Galaxy's brace of Eurostars stayed home. And they were without Omar Gonzalez, who missed the entire first half of the season with an injury.

The Timbers are hoping their new acquisitions plus extra time off is enough for them to secure their first road win of the 2012 season, either in Toronto on August 15 or New York on August 19.

Sunday was a great win by the Fire and the squad garnered 3 important points in the standings. As per usual, the Fire got the job done after going down a goal early. The Fire have come back so many times this year, that I'm starting to get a little complacent with conceding early goals. Hopefully the player don't start feeling the same.

We continue our series of archived matches of the clubs of the Football League Championship this morning with six matches from the history of a club that has been generating a large number of headlines over the last few weeks, Cardiff City. Cardiffs position in the Football world as a Welsh club playing in the English league system is not unique but for many years it did allow them a route into European football through the Welsh Cup and our first two matches come from that competition.

What an absolutely engrossing match. City showing the fortitude and strength to dig deep to come back to equalize and then score the winner gives an indication of how hard it will be to stop them from repeating as Premiership winners. This was on a continuum from the last match of last season with the title on the line against QPR and then Sergio Aguero producing that immortal moment in the very last minute.

Emerson's brace sparked a famous Corinthians victory over six times Copa Libertadores champions Boca Juniors. The first leg ended in a 1-1 draw. It was the first Libertadores title for Corinthians in the 52 year history of the competition which has favoured Argentinian clubs (22 titles) over the Brazilians (16 titles) by quite some distance.

The Premier League starts today, and every football fan should be looking forward to it. Last season ended spectacularly when Manchester City took the title in the final seconds of the last match ahead of their rivals of Manchester United. And City already took a title by winning the Super Cup match against Chelsea 3-2 last week and will still be hungry this season.

Already having thrashed Amazulu 1-0 with Kiko Macheda's goal, and a 1-1 affair with Ajax Cape Town, this match notched the level into serious.

100 Owners: Number 87 – Louis Edwards (Manchester United)

It has, in recent years, become standard for some Manchester United supporters to sing songs regarding the death of Malcolm Glazer. The owner of the club inspires such extreme emotions amongst the clubs fan-base that it is possible to think that him and his family are the first group of individuals to have been involved in this club for reasons that may concern motives other than merely wanting to run a football club and global institution for its own betterment, but this is, of course, untrue and if we are to look back at the history of this club, it is arguably the involvement of another family which truly set Manchester United on the course to the position in which it finds itself today: the Edwards family.

Not every U.S. women's national team game is going to feature both an Alex Morgan AND Abby Wambach goal, but you're usually good for at least one of them finding the back of the net. It took Megan Rapinoe's first goal of the 2012 London Olympic tournament to kickstart an eventual 3-0 win, but for long stretches of the match it looked at though the Colombians, with their heavy (and sometimes too aggressive) pressure would make this a much tougher battle than the Lady Nats expected.

As the U.S. prepare to play Jamaica in two World Cup qualifiers over four days, manager Juergen Klinsmann decided to bring in Donnie Moore, a motivational speaker, to unleash his phonebook ripping wisdom on the team.

Now, you might think that going to the Estadio Azteca and beating Mexico for the first time ever in their last match would be far more motivating than anything a guy with a pompadour and a track suit could say to them.

Chicago came out early and looked like they were going to try and take three points home from Houston. I really enjoyed that; and for a couple of moments in the first half, they came close to doing it, too. Once the second half began, it became more about trying to get back home with a result. The Fire went into this one with a four point lead over Houston, and they return home with a four point lead intact.

The Foxes swept the Kansas City Brass with 2-1 wins on Friday and Saturday. Now the Highlands Ranch-based side will have to travel to Kansas City knowing that two wins in the final two matches will net a playoff berth.
