Back at home and waiting for the next 2 MLS games

OK we’ve got L.A. vs. Kansas City at 6 on ESPN2, and D.C.-San Jose at 7:30 on FSC. I wanted to get home and get some food (Domino’s bread bowl pasta…yum!) and beat the traffic around Safeco before I blogged. Mission accomplished.
Galaxy win puts them into at least a tie for second place in West.
Chillpill from Bellevue has it right, as far as I know. Marshall did not play because he played all of the Chelsea game and followed that up with 120 minutes (all) of Houston Open Cup match.
Can you believe, only four home games left in regular season? In between, two three-game road swings still to come.
Kasey Keller compared today’s game to a half-court battle in basketball. “They attacked a little bit, we attacked a little bit,” he said.
Keller said it was a shame that it was a draw because he felt the team created enough chances to win the game. At least, he said, Seattle pushed for a goal, didn’t get it and was able to keep Chicago scoreless and pick up a point.
“This isn’t a good tie for us. We played well enough to win the game and we should have won the game,” Keller said. “They were very happy with the tie, we’re not.”
Chicago had three really good chances to score, tops.
“Today was about our missed opportunities up front,” Keller said. “Another day, we score three goals. You give Fredy Montero those chances again and he makes them 9 out of 10 times.”
I thought Osvaldo Alonso was really big in shutting down Blanco, who was never much of a threat. Defensively, this was one of Sounders FC’s best games of the season.
