"It's a good problem to have."

TUKWILA, Wash. — You may have noticed that the Seattle Sounders won a few games in a row despite losing several top players. When they play the LA Galaxy on Saturday July 29 (7 PM, ESPN) they'll have most of those players back. Only Osvaldo Alonso is a likely absence as Nicolas Lodeiro returns from suspension and Oniel Fisher, Clint Dempsey, and Jordan Morris return from the Gold Cup.

On closer look Villa went down without contact.

Seattle Sounders fans may feel hard done once again by PRO. This time it came after Robert Sibiga called Oniel Fisher's tackle on David Villa a penalty in the 51' minute of their 2-1 defeat at the hands of New York City FC this past weekend.

The replays showed that Fisher got all ball and at worst, NYCFC should have received a corner kick.

Each of their two losses was powered by a team with MLS talent. In the midweek loss to Arizona that loss was powered by a stellar performance from Sam Garza, a player who the Sounders didn't see as having a future with them.

The Seattle Sounders' opening loss to Sporting Kansas City can be blamed on a red card and a soft goal, but the team's performance in an even game state reveals growing pains of the 4-3-3.

In 410 games between March of 2014 and May of 2015, MLS teams played 86 matches with a red card imbalance by the end of the game.

Another lower draft pick that has performed well for Sounders FC. Fisher adapted well enough to the pro level to become the starting left back.

When Oniel Fisher joined the squad the thought was that he would be a decent back up right back, maybe play some USOC and Group Stage CCL. Instead, what he did was win the starting job on the left.

Big changes are on the way. Or, at least that's what the Seattle Sounders have been preparing us for. What that actually means is very much a "remains to be seen" issue, but given what we know, we figured we'd at least take a guess at the status of each player on the Sounders roster.

The Sounder at Heart staff classified each player as "keep," "drop" or "fence.

In what began as a sunny, joyous occasion in Seattle, the Sounders' opening day matchup with Sporting KC quickly turned as dark as the city's skies when a fairly uneventful first half ended with a red card for right-back Oniel Fisher. Fisher had been Seattle's most influential player in the first half, shuttling up and down the right side of the pitch up until his sending off.

The Sounders came out flat, and two individual mistakes led to fairly easy goals for San Antonio forward Jason Johnson within the first 10 minutes. First, Oniel Fisher failed to pick up Johnson as he made a run into the box in the 3rd minute, and Tyler Miller was easily beaten to the far post.
