We had hoped to have something more uplifting to talk about after waiting a few extra days to record. It didn't quite work out that way. While the result wasn't exactly a disaster (losing 1-0 at home at least gives the Sounders a puncher's chance), it was not the feel-good moment we had been hoping for.
Aaron and Jeremiah discuss the ramifications of that result and actually do find some reasons to be at least somewhat optimistic. The new formation moved showed some promise, Shalrie Joseph moved the ball effectively and the defense held up against one of the most explosive attacks in North America.
To help us get to the bottom of the Sounders' worst-ever league start, we enlisted the help of Seattle Times beat writer Josh Mayers (@joshuamayers). He helped explain what, exactly, went on after the Sounders' loss to Real Salt Lake and gave us some insight into what has ailed the Sounders so far.
Of course, no episode would be complete without taking your questions. We do plenty of that. If you'd like to get your questions answered, follow us on Twitter (@NosAudietis) or send us an email (NosAudietis@gmail.com).
