The Seattle Sounders face EPL power Totthenham Hotspur today in a friendly at CenturyLink Field. Quick post today. I am not crazy about friendlies, the intensity isn’t the same, players could get hurt, so I don’t see it as worth it from a fan’s perspective.
These games are marketing aimed at the Eurosnob soccer fans who flock to see “real” soccer teams slumming it Stateside. That idea appalls me. If this game meant something and the Sounders could prove their mettle, and the quality of MLS, in a legitimate contest, I’d be the loudest fan in the stands. But that’s not the case… so Go Sounders! Don’t let anyone get hurt.
