Brad Evans is still in line to be a captain again, someday

TUKWILA, Wash. — Some clubs let the players pick the captain. Seattle Sounders have done this at times. In other cases it is the coach who assigns the largely ceremonial role. Sounders do this currently, and most often through their MLS history.

Sounders at Vancouver Whitecaps, live stream: Game time, TV schedule and lineups

Cascadia Cup round one starts at 7 PM Friday night on Q13 FOX.

The Vancouver Whitecaps are now able to focus on MLS play alone. But their CCL run cost them talented players, points on the table and their first week in purely league play is against their oldest rivals - the Seattle Sounders.

What would it require to move the Seattle Sounders to a 3-man midfield?

If the Sounders keep Alonso they are perfectly set-up to play with three central midfielders. If they do not have him, than Erik Friberg provides versatility in the search for a replacement.

For the six years of the Seattle Sounders existence, Sigi Schmid has almost exclusively used a 4-4-2 formation.

Just minutes after the Sounders evened up tonight's score, FC Dallas managed to get the ball into Stefan Frei's net again. A deep cross wasn't dealt with by the Sounders' defense, going right to an unmarked Mauro Rosales near the far post; the former Sounder headed it back across goal and right to Maximiliano Urruti, who headed the ball (unchallenged) past Frei and into the corner.

The last time the Seattle Sounders went out of the playoffs this early was 2013. Granted that was in far more spectacular fashion -- losing a pair of games and being thoroughly outclassed by their biggest rivals -- but it precluded the most dramatic rebuilding in the club's history.
