Thanks for reading

Lots of good comments and view points on the game last night. I’m about to head back to Seattle but wanted to pass along a couple of things.

First, there is no Sounders FC practice today, I believe coach Schmid likes the Calif. trips to take an extra day with family in his native Torrance.

Second, here’s the game story from last night that I wrote.

Third, I have Jaqua with four cautions now this season so the next one will cost him a one-game suspension. I believe Osvaldo Alonso will drop to two from three after three games without a yellow.

Jaqua said last night that he thought the team played much better last night than the first time.

“Not to get anything out of two games here is bad,” he said. “Give them credit, they’re organized, and everyone of them works.”

The replay, to me, showed Jaqua kicking Nagamura on the back of his foot, and Nagamura went airborne to sell out. Maybe is was a hard kick but didn’t appear to me to be something where he intended to do harm.

Jaqua did admit that on his first yellow, he wanted to send a message to Chivas USA with a hard foul because Chivas was the more physical team in April.

Kasey Keller:

“Sometimes this game’s not fair. I mean Carey Talley (Chivas player) told me we definitely didn’t get what we deserved out of the game…we could have played three games tonight and not scored. Give Chivas a little credit. They had some players missing and they defended extremely well. I was proud of the way we played, we deserved more, but in the end, you make your own luck and we didn’t do it.”
