Sounders FC

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

Away to Colorado (Friday links)

I am off to Denver, Colorado, this afternoon for Saturday’s game between Sounders FC and the Rapids.

My itinerary is such that I won’t be able to attend or provide updates from training this afternoon from Starfire, but I trust you know where to go for news. The team’s Twitter account and website are good places to start.

Let’s get to some links:

*     *     *

— Well, it looks like Osvaldo Alonso is suspended for the Sounders’ first U.S. Open Cup game this year.

— One writer doesn’t place good odds on Eddie Johnson making it to 100 MLS goals. He’s at 56 going into Saturday’s game.

— Around the league, the players union has picked the charities that fine money from disciplinary action will go to, and here’s a look at the longest shutout streaks in MLS history (which Kansas City is joining).

— Some interesting stuff from the league website includes a long feature on the mindset of a goal-scorer (plus a sidebar giving some love to assist men), and Landon Donovan offered his thoughts on another failure at the U.S. youth national level.

— Here’s a BBC piece on Freddy Adu following his move to Brazil.

— The NWSL will have six regular-season games, one a week starting July 8, and all three playoff games broadcast by the FOX Sports Media Group this year.

— Lastly, the Sounders FC U-23s signed a local product with a tremendous life story in Machael David.
