Sounders September - Rounding The Turn

Sounder at Heart at related • 0 views

It's early in the stretch run of a season that MLS puts forth as a marathon. In a season where Seattle fell short of two trophies already (Open Cup, 11/12 CCL) they still are capable of two more major trophies as well as the Cascadia Cup. Travel concerns essentially end in September, unless the Sounders are on the road for the MLS Cup Final, which is travel that any fan, supporter, player, coach or front office personnel would love to be forced upon them.

These small moments in soccer can create life-long fans of the sport (with the help of a beer or two, perhaps?) and the memories of such sporting excellence can hang in our memories like fine art in a gallery.

2012-13 promises to be a big season for both players and this is probably the best possible start as far as the two are concerned and if they are involved to any great extent, they could have an early opportunity to show the new Spurs manager what they can contribute.

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 Revolution have offered an entertaining, if ulcer producing, last few games. Last minute goals secured last-second ties where losses seemed imminent.  It was entertaining and both encouraging (we did come back!) and frustrating (but we could have, should have, won!) stuff.

As we look back, amid the discussion of tactical adjustments, substitutions, defensive lapses, last minute heroics and (clearly) offside goals, one element that you hear much less about is attitude.
