Ahh Seattle Sounders matchday. The sky is bluer, the hills are greener. To get you amped for today’s game against the New England Revolution (not that you need it), I present my first bold prediction of the season!
Bold Prediction: Today’s matchup is the one Sounders fans expect when we took the Xbox pitch for the second leg of the Western Conference Championship. Now we finally get to see the teams in a game that has much less at stake. The Revs are for real, no doubt, but so is Seattle. Both teams aren’t fielding an ideal eleven, as the Revs won’t have USMNT star midfielder, and Charlie Sheen pal, Jermaine Jones. Coach Jay Heaps will also be making game-time decisions regarding an ailing Lee Nguyen and Juan Agudelo. New England had a crack at the crown last year, while Seattle has everything to prove. We would’ve ripped them last year and I see no reason, Ozzie or not, why we won’t today. Seattle 3-2.
