Remember those times when we were insisting that the Seattle Sounders were unlucky to have such a poor record? Remember when we thought they had depth, and talent. Winning seems to ended a lot of that talk.
Not that it should have, but more intriguingly; the numbers of Sounders players on the MLS Team of Week might. MLS team of the week is in a 3-4-3 so teams with attacking talent are at an advantage.
This week Seattle has four reps - Kasey Keller, Steve Zakuani, Mauro Rosales and O'Brian White.
Last week? Zakuani
Week 2? Osvaldo Alonso
Week 1? Jeff Parke
In fact Seattle has had more players on the Team of the Week than any other team. Only the Vancouver Whitecaps have been represented in each week with the Sounders. The Houston Dynamo and Real Salt Lake are the only teams to approach Seattle; both with 5 reps so far.
