Nos Audietis, Episode 78: 2012 post-mortem, plus Michael Gspurning

Otto Greule Jr

We welcome Sounders goalkeeper Michael Gspurning onto the show, as we dissect the 2012 season.

With the season well in the books at this point there isn't much left to do but to pick over the carcass that was the 2012 Seattle Sounders season. It wasn't exactly a massive disappointment, but it definitely fell short of our expectations. The highlights included a trip to a fourth straight U.S. Open Cup final and the lows included another deflating 3-0 loss in the playoffs.

One thing we are reasonably certain of is that change seems to be in the winds. The Sounders seem to be preparing us for the possibility that some of the faces we've gotten used to seeing won't be around next year. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it will definitely put added pressure on this team to succeed.

Michael Gspurning is one player who will almost certainly be back, though. He joins us on the podcast to discuss his first season in MLS and how he's fallen in love with Seattle.
