Mauro Rosales Out Against Columbus Crew; Expect Changes From Seattle Sounders

New, comment

Today on Sigi Schmid's Conference Call with local reporters he revealed that Mauro Rosales will not be in the 18 versus the Columbus Crew. He also expects to make several changes to the starting lineup. To paraphrase every band was mentioned as getting 1 or 2 changes - the backline, the midfield and even a change at forward.

Coach Schmid mentioned that with some players still not rested from the game Wednesday night he is not yet certain of all of the adjustments, and some won't be until they are in the stadium Saturday. Unlike later this summer when the team will be competing in three competitions at a time the players are generally fresh, but there are similarities in that the plan can get tossed out as circumstances change.

Later this evening a full transcript should be up, but for now this paraphrasing of the main bits of news related to the upcoming should get into your heads as we wrap our ideas around possible lineups for a game against the Crew.
