Line-ups are out, and the word generally is that this is likely the Sounders starting XI at this point. But, I’m a little hesitent to conceede that point just yet. I believe that Djimi Traore will be back and healthy by that point and I’m even going to hold my breath and see if Mario Martinez battles Evans for that mid-field spot as stupid as that sounds.
I know that Martinez is less central more wing, but with his on the ball skills and ability to make a cross into the box it may work well with Rosales tendency to cut into the midfield and sometimes play a central role. It’s purely a theory.
Game is on mlssoccer.com, just like the last one and with this win the Sounders could clinch a spot in the Desert Diamond finals. THE FINALS! That’s right folks we are just two steps away from the first hardware of the season. O-m-G!!!!
I hope to all hope you read that as sarcasm.
