Sounders FC

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

March 23, 2012 at 7:38 AM

The league is watching (Friday links)

Yesterday was a big news day, with headlines going to Megan Rapinoe, O’Brian White, away-fan ticket allocation in Cascadia games and Adam Johansson.

Today’s a big game day — a battle of undefeateds, NBC Sports is in town — and the Sounders know people around the league will be watching.

“We mentioned it briefly; we’ll mention it again,” said coach Sigi Schmid. “It’s good to see the NBC numbers up much higher than they were at FOX Soccer. I think that’s good for the league, definitely. Hopefully the numbers tomorrow night will be even higher because it’s us playing on TV.”

Arlo White offers a preview here.

Let’s get to some links:

— The U.S. U-23s cruised past Cuba, 6-0, in the opener to CONCACAF Olympic qualifying. Here are some highlights and here’s a good piece on the big scorer, Joe Corona, who had a hat trick.

— There are a couple Sounders FC academy products included in this list of the 100 top prospects from the Class of 2013.

— The high school or academy debate has hit home again.

— Former NASL Sounder Harry Redknapp and Tottenham are coming to the U.S. for a pair of summer friendlies against the Los Angeles Galaxy (July 24) and New York Red Bulls (July 31). Said Redknapp: “I have fantastic memories of America from my days playing at Seattle Sounders and, more recently, our last visit there two years ago.”

— Here’s the latest edition of ExtraTime Radio. And here’s a video interview with MLS commissioner Don Garber.

— Thankfully the universe did not collapse upon itself when Ross Fletcher interviewed Arlo for SoundersFC.com
