Sounders at Rapids - 2nd half gamethread

Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Spor

There are not bright spots. This is bad, very bad. Down 4-nil the club has work to do. Not giving up a goal 14 seconds into the second half would be a start.

There is very little to like about this match. The Colorado Rapids look as good as any team in the league. Seattle Sounders FC are playing as poorly as they ever have. After giving up a goal in the first 14 seconds Sounders FC gave up another, and another and another. This is as deep a hole as the club's ever been in during their short history. They didn't come back last time.

Seattle Sounders: 0
Colorado Rapids: 4 (Brown, Powers, Brown, Moor)

Things we like: play within the attacking box, service on dead balls, EJ's passing, Rosales switching to the left, the crossbar

Thinks we don't like: Long balls over the top to set records in scoring, defense on corners, not shooting when on goal, Scott's worst passing ever, finishing on dead balls, time wasting when the home team is up 3-nil, Scott getting dribbled, set play defense, Gspurning not being awesome on the four goals, the defense allowing those opportunities

Changes Sigi needs to make: must play over the highline, must sit their line back a bit more, should replace Zach Scott
