Seattle Sounders 2 vs Tulsa Roughnecks: live stream, game time, and lineups

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

S2 have only pride and next season to fight for against Tulsa.

Since their last game, results out of Seattle Sounders FC 2's control went against them and they find themselves mathematically eliminated from the USL Playoffs. The writing has been on the wall for close to two months but as someone who watched both the ‘95 Mariners and the 16' Seattle Sounders there was always a pinch at the back of my skull promising the impossible.

Prior to the Seattle Sounders v Chelsea FC friendly NASL Sounder Roger Davies will be awarded the Golden Scarf. The scarf is now awarded on a much more limited basis than previous years, but there is little doubt that Davies deserves the recognition of his importance to Seattle's soccer history. This guest post is to provide those that missed his greatness with a reminder of just how much he meant to the Sounders.

Scouting Report: Sounders at Timbers - I'm A Lumberjack And I'm OK

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

The Portland Timbers are not a good MLS team right now. Sure, they have the nobility of support (as Seattle fans we've been through that with the Seahawks, Sonics and Mariners), but the team itself is poor. John Spencer and those above him are trying to rebuild on the fly. They recently added Danny Mwanga and Mike Fucito to add to the offense.

The Portland Timbers U23's took on the Fraser Valley Mariners yesterday and did something that the Timbers first team has not done since the first week of the season: they won big and they won in style. With a final score of 3-0, a score that was generous to the Mariners, the U23's opened their season with an exciting victory.

Sydney FC

Sydney FC remains a basket case - where is your football vision

Football in the Capital at related • 0 views
The talk is that Sydney FC has spent more than $7 million this year on their playing budget.

Is it possible for a team to spend so much in the A-League and to return so little. And are there any signs the playing group are heading in the right direction, this year or more worryingly next?

Sydney FC: The entertainers. And have they found a no. 9?

Football in the Capital at related • 0 views
Have you ever seen Sydney FC entertain like that?

They were sharp out of the blocks, took the lead with a great finish and with a little more urgency could have been a couple up early.

The Mariners were all at sea, unusually sloppy with their ball retention in front of their back four and the defence was losing tackles and players at will.

Mustafa Amini is 17 right?

Football in the Capital at related • 0 views
He's playing number 10 for the Mariners and if you haven't seen him play yet and you're into Aussie football, it's time you did.

He's got such touch, in a key key position. And while you're about it compare him to every other Aussie midfielder going around in the A-League.

He has remarkable vision for a young player, which shows vision isn't about the age, but amazingly, to me, like all top top players he has great physical strength.

Ange and Marcos Rojas - what is not to like - watch the Kiwi fly

Marcos Rojas the young Kiwi flyer showed signs of greatness in NZ - at Victory less so as Managers struggled to get the best out of him. You can bet Ange will and won't it be great to see the energy and talent of Rojas go to another level. Ange likes them running and young and it will be fascinating to see if he has a spot for our Harry.

Melbourne Victory Mess: Actually is it Ernie's midfield legacy?

Football in the Capital at related • 0 views
It started with Ernie - Mehmet inherited and added to the mess and now look where we are.

The Victory midfield has been a debacle since Fred left. His fast running midfield added much to Archie Thompson and a younger Danny Allsopp's firepower but how many years ago was that.

And was the style sustainable in Asia - or even the A-League.


Brisbane Roar: Now we all know how to beat them, or is Ange really the master coach?

The Salary Cap has struck again.

Brisbane Roar have lost Thomas Broich, Henrique, Matt Smith and other key players in recent weeks and as a result despite continuing to boss possession, key goals have been conceded and a lack of attacking penetration has seem the team suffer three defeats in a row.

Perth disappointing us all - in the East

Football in the Capital at related • 0 views
We all saw the Brisbane Roar flying around the field last year, the Mariners were not far behind and of course Melbourne and Adelaide always set a standard, often exciting.

Perth failed, failed to excite and this after being top of the boxing league after a few games.

Had a review - kept Iain Ferguson - and done the same.

Perez fails to deliver as McKay's Roar march on.

Football in the Capital at related • 0 views
All the hype about Patricio Perez the Mariners star Argentinean counted for nothing as he failed to deliver in the game that mattered, the A-League semi-final.

A close game and the Mariners were perhaps unlucky not to score as they hit the post a couple of times but in truth it was Perez with some key space and ball, particularly in the second half who could not deliver a final ball, or test the Roar keeper with any decent shot that saw the Mariners needing a miracle in Brisbane.

Battle of Aussies :Did Arnie bottle it?

The A-League is improving, even SBS says so, so it must be. In part, or mostly, it's due to the quality of our coaches.

Midweek matchday; Not one but three

Midweek football is here again.

While some Aussies wait for the five day game that could end in a draw - do we all really like cricket?

Hmmmn not so sure - or else why did we have to invent the 20/20 version.

Anyway on Wednesday Brisbane at home to Perth, even the Roar can't stumble against God and co surely, or are the Roar fading?


If Canberra is smart we could grab an A-League vacancy - soon.

The Capital doesn't have an A-League team, the FFA don't want the Capital, it can't be maintained with the Brumbies and Raiders and now GWS in the city.

You've heard it all before.

But when you step back from the emotion it's Canberra's intelligence that can and needs to get it over the line.

Time for Canberra United to divorce Capital Football - Mariners show the way.

It could happen.

Take Canberra United women's team - and divorce it from Capital Football - and now would be a great time.

Capital Football do what they are best at - grassroots and local competitions.

The Canberra United professional set-up would gain further expertise and focus in their elite area and Canberra United would expand to run and promote the elite game in town.

Monday's first preseason friendly was an unqualified success both on and off the field. If tonight's game is going to match it it's going to have a little more competition off the field, as it's also the home opener for the Mariners. But people are already filing in an hour before and it looks to me like if tonight doesn't match Monday's crowd, it'll be close.
