Work on another project kept me from getting to many pregame notes. There’s little playoff drama in this regular-season home finale, which is a good thing for the Sounders and not so good for Chivas USA.
Fan Appreciation Night should provide some extra entertainment for the faithful. We’ll see in the on-field product does too.
Here are the lineups:
Sounders FC lineup: GK Kasey Keller, D James Riley, D Jeff Parke, D Patrick Ianni, D Leo Gonzalez, M Osvaldo Alonso, M Nathan Sturgis, M Steve Zakuani, M Sanna Nyassi, F Fredy Montero, F Blaise Nkufo
Sounders FC bench: GK Terry Boss, M Alvaro Fernandez, F/M Mike Fucito, F Nate Jaqua, F/M Roger Levesque, D Tyrone Marshall, D Tyson Wahl
Chivas USA lineup: GK Zach Thornton, D Mariano Trujillo, D Michael Umana, D Ante Jazic, D Jonathan Bornstein, M Rodolfo Espinoza, M Michael Lahoud, M Paulo Nagamura, M Jorge Flores, F Jesus Padilla, F Giancarlo Maldonado
