Sounders weren't able to move the ball very well last night. RSL had almost instant high pressure on every pass we made. Definitely felt Rosales being out last night, but in the end Martinez made that screaming volley. Sounders tactic looked to be to hang back and absorb the RSL offense then try and long ball it up to FM and EJ in the hopes of a breakaway.

LA vs San Jose was a scary exhibition of Keane. That crossing run behind the defense line, Landon's perfect through ball, and Keane's sense to side step instead of blast were excellent. It's going to be a great series.

GO SOUNDERS!!!

Well that was unexpected. Pretty ugly game for Seattle and a hole probably too deep to get out of. Have no idea why we went with the lineup we did and why we decided to play just one forward.

Yeah, wow. That was crazy! Mike Magee, aka Mr. November, aka The Highlander, going strong in the post-season again. And of course Robbie Keane is playing out of control.

Rough road ahead for Seattle. They're going to have to figure out how to keep LA from having acres of space in the midfield if they're to keep up in the second leg.

I kind of wondered why Montero was alone up there.
Didn't seem to work too well.
There was one cross right before half time, if Montero had been an inch taller, and timed it a little better, it would have been in the back of the net.
Besides that, all the crosses to him were pretty useless.

What was that last night? The whole first half up to the goal I was thinking the game looked very open with decent passes. Nothing like the bruising physical play from RSL.

Seattle's defense must have stayed at home. They couldn't pick up anything. LA was running circles around our back line and for some reason the line stayed rigid. They didn't pick up any of the cross runs. Johansson left Keane open several times, Alonso often looked like he was playing as a fullback. Absolutely horrible play by the Sounders.

I wished Schmidt had put another striker up top to help Montero. It sounded like he didn't feel EJ could handle another full 90 so the original plan was for him to go in during the second half. Not sure why they pulled Montero too.

I sure hope they can get their game together for Sunday's game. LA's attack looked good, but we know we can produce a 4-0 result against them as we've done it already once this year.
