“A tribute to Paolo Hurtado.”
You saw it just like I did….what a play by Fredy Montero, what a shot, and what a very cool message on his undershirt and that of Osvaldo Alonso. Those guys are definitely the Three Amigos.
Boy did Sounders FC need that. Make it seven goals for El Matador, the perfect nickname since Montero just kills the Red Bulls. That’s three in three games, maybe he’s got the touch back.
My thoughts on the first half:
-Really like Ty Keough on the commentary. What a pro.
-The football lines at Giants Stadium look ugly.
-Alonso getting in Kandji’s face, I think, just further endears him to Seattle fans.
-Looks like Ljungberg is just being given a rest since the team has played a lot lately.
–Felicidades El Presidente on your baby boy!
-Goldthwaite stepped on Seba’s ankle and the officials missed that.
-The goal by Juan Pablo Angel is Sounders FC’s fault, and that’s twice in two games where Marshall has made a costly error. You could give him a pass for the header perhaps, but kicking the ball into your own player should not happen. This defense has not played too well the past three games and I would imagine Sigi Schmid will let them have it.
