Edit: Bumped back to the top for your deadline needs.
It should probably be named a transfer window closing thread, but this will have to work. There's been a request for an open thread to throw all the stories, rumors, speculation, love, hate and everything else into this weekend, so this is what you get. The Seattle Sounders have a very short amount of time to make a deal before the transfer window closes, and with a calm settling over team headquarters, it's been very quiet -- at least when it comes to rumors.
So what's going on? Nobody has a clue. General manager Adrian Hanauer is reportedly exploring all options and working fast to try and make something happen, but does not want to add a player for the sake of adding a player. This, of course, has been the subject of much debate, which you can get caught up on here and here.
Feel free to add any rumors, reports or thoughts in the comments as the weekend progresses.
