Sounders FC

Daily coverage of Seattle Sounders FC, MLS and world soccer.

April 29, 2010 at 5:57 PM

A stop and chat with Sounders FC goalkeeper Kasey Keller

(On two home games being an opportunity to reestablish Sounders FC in the league…) “I fully agree. When you get the opportunity to play a couple games in a row at home, you have to take advantage of that. It’s difficult to pick up points on the road, in any sport, for any teams. You need to take advantage of your home form. We had great home-form last year and we want to improve on that. We were disappointed with our early loss to New York and … we were so happy to be able to come back and win the game against K.C. in the last minute. We really want to put our authority back at Qwest for the next couple games against two good teams at the top of their divisions. We need to make sure we set that tone.”


(On the Crew…) “Columbus has been one of the top teams for the last couple years. They got a couple injuries. They have a couple guys that, you’re hearing rumors, might be rested. We have to worry about who steps on the field at the time. We know they have a good balance of experience and youth, and we need to make sure we play the way we’re capable of playing. It’s a little bit of an opportunity for us to set our authority on our home form against a couple good teams and really show the rest of the league that we’re legit.”
(On Columbus’ consistency year to year and learning from that…) “I think it starts from battling for 90 minutes every game. If you work harder than your opponent, you have a very good chance of winning games every time you step on the field. You have to make sure that attitude shows up week in and week out. It’s not, ‘Today I’m at home so I’m going to play,’ or ‘Well I don’t really quite feel great today.’ You have to be able to say, ‘Hey, every game I’m going to step out and give everything I have.’ And when you do that, it’s amazing what happens, and it’s infectious throughout the team and other guys pick up on that and keep doing it.”
