- Sounders' record: 10-7-4
- Sounders' record in games where they have scored: 10-1-3
I haven't watched every broadcast this season, but I have read just about every post on Sounder at Heart, and I have never seen or heard a single reference to this statistic from a commentator, blogger, or blog commenter. Have I just been totally missing the discussion of this, or has no one else noticed this? Or am I just the only one that thinks this is really interesting?
I think this could have a lot of bearing on why this season has felt so mediocre to many of us, despite that our point accumulation is at least on par with previous years. Almost all of our losses have been shutouts - when we lose, we lose big.
Every time the Sounders score first the broadcasters trot out that statistic about our record the past few seasons when scoring first, which is definitely an interesting one, but they should really be mentioning their record when scoring at all this season too!
