It is finally here. This week the Sounders play what potentially could be the most important match as an MLS team as they take on Santos Laguna of the Mexican Primera División. The first of the two-legged series will be played on Wednesday March 7th at Century Link field at 7:00 pm. If you haven't gotten your tickets, by the way, you can get them at the box office.
This week we start out with a round-table discussion with Joshua Mayers of the Seattle Times and Don Ruiz of the Tacoma News Tribune. We discuss how the off-season moves have helped the team and how the Sounders stack up against the rest of MLS, and also what it's going to take to make 2012 a successful season.
We also talk to Tom Marshall of The Mexican Soccer show on The North American Soccer Network about the Santos Laguna match. He has special insight as to what kind of team they will field, what weaknesses they have and what the Sounders need to do to beat one of the best Mexican teams in the Primera División.
Last but not least we talk a bit more about Eddie Johnson and the news that he could get the nod to start on Wednesday and what that could mean for the squad.
We're are still looking for sponsors, now that we have a fancy new studio. If you're interested, shoot us an email to NosAudietis@gmail.com. If you'd like to advertise on the site as well, that can be arranged too.
