No Obafemi Martins, or Chad Marshall in surprise starting lineup

In tonight's match against FC Dallas Sigi Schmid had hard choices with his starting lineup. Seattle Sounders FC will start in a 4-2-3-1.

Frei; Mears, Evans (c), Scott, Gonzalez; Pineda, Azira; Roldan, Rose; Neagle; Barrett

That's a lot of depth getting a run. Obafemi Martins is out with a quad injury.

Seattle's bench is also limited with just six options for Schmid late in game. Perkins, Remick, Fisher, Ockford, Kovar, and Mansaray are the choices. That means that Jones, Correa, Lowe, Lyon and missing man Kenny Cooper did not travel with the team.

All but Cooper should be with S2 for their game against the Thundercaps Sunday at 4 PM, but would they serve more use as a potential third sub late in an MLS match rather than training with S2 and then watching the game against Dallas from The Ninety?
