Once again, Cristian bossed the midfield for the full 90 minutes.

After playing an overtime game with starters midweek, everyone knew that Sporting Kansas City would bring a less than first-choice starting lineup. We also knew they wouldn't change their tactics one bit. SKC came out and pressed, stayed compact in the back, and were generally uncreative in their possession.

SEATTLE For much of the spring and early summer, the defending champion Seattle Sounders found themselves looking up at the so-called red line as makeshift defenses struggled to keep the ball out of the net and the attack struggled to find chemistry.

While it was a team effort by the Seattle Sounders in their 4-0 win away to Minnesota United, two performances were deemed to be a cut above the rest. Major League Soccer named both Clint Dempsey and Nicolas Lodeiro to their latest Team of the Week, after the former bagged a brace and an assist, while the latter also had an assist in an all-around excellent showing in Minnesota on Saturday.

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.

Let's talk through this together.

It's been a pretty good couple months for the Seattle Sounders. They're riding a seven-game unbeaten run and have won 4 of 5. They're within spitting distance of the top spot in the West and they're as healthy as they've been all year.

Yet, there's a bit of a dark cloud over them in the form of a un-maximized (not sure if that's a word) roster spot.
