The Reds, with a record of 8-8-6 and coming off a loss to Chivas USA, are in town this week.
This is the first team Sounders FC defeated on the road in the MLS regular season. Seattle has only one road win since, but the Reds only have two road wins themselves.
Toronto is in the mix with 30 points in the Eastern Conference, but is has surrendered 22 goals away from home. By contrast, Seattle has allowed only nine goals at Qwest.
Interesting take on TFC following the Chivas loss from the Toronto Sun. Defender Adrian Serioux and midfielder Carl Robinson won’t play Saturday because of yellow card accumulations.
Read on in the story and see an interesting note about the USL up for sale and that this could be Major League Soccer’s chance to acquire it and set up a relegation-promotion deal. I for one love that idea, not only is it done worldwide but it makes the sport unique, and it also makes every game meaningful from the opener to the final day of the season.
Can you imagine say, the Puerto Rico Islanders or Charleston Battery earning their way into MLS and FC Dallas or the New York Red Bulls — heaven forbid for MLS — getting relegated? It’s fun to imagine.
