Sounders v Galaxy Western Finals Leg Two - Gamethread

It is no longer time for hype, for reason, for hope, for sorrow - it is time for the game. Down three goals the Sounders face the Galaxy in a match that is more than must win. It is must win by a lot.

Stephen Dunn

The deficit must be paid. It will either be paid through the labors of the Seattle Sounders players as they mount a comeback for the ages or it will be paid by fans tears as they watch the LA Galaxy advance to the MLS Cup Final on December 1st.

To get there the Sounders will need to play the match of their lives. Every minute, every one of the eight thousand seven hundred yards must belong to the Rave Green from the first whistle until the final. Their attack must come from every angle. Via corner, cross, header, throughball, flank play and tika-taka the Sounders must be relentless in their waves of assault. At the same point they must be prepared to defend the counter. This is no time for bend but don't break, this is the time to break them. Alonso, Parke, Hurtado, Johansson, the left back and Cerberus must be stout.

Most importantly the Seattle Sounders must be Big Damn Heroes.

Maybe one last moment of hype, this from Billy Idol's Shock to the System;

It was a night, L.A., burning bright
Oh what a night

And ends

You could be king
Say it louder
The world still burns
