The two perennial MLS Cup favorites meet again. LA Galaxy are off to a slow 1-2-2 -1 start. Seattle Sounders FC are better at 2-1-1 +3. History between these two is tight. In their five MLS and MLS Cup Playoff matches of 2015 Seattle is 2-2-1 -1 against their SoCal foe. Sunday at 4 PM FoxSports 1 shows America one team that is inside its championship window and another that is a fading empire.
In what ultimately was a dominant performance, the Seattle Sounders ended up losing to their Western Conference rivals LA Galaxy 1-0 in a game whose scoreline was not reflective of the play on the field.
This sucks. A recap shouldn't feature more words about the opposing keeper than any other player. It is frustrating, and is not just a sign of his quality, but that Seattle could not complete the sequences the started.
Like the Ottomans, the Han, the Ummayads, the Mongols, the Songhai, the Inca, the British, and the Romans the LA Galaxy will fall. They're probably falling now. This is how Seattle can start the Galaxy's decline.
This is a Galaxy side guided by Bruce Arena that is dropping early points, frustrating the players and still searching for ways to replace both Donovan and Sarvas. How will they do that? That is answered, and more.
When Pineda kicked a dude in the chest it didn't just influence the match against the Dynamo, it hurt Seattle when they face the Galaxy on Sunday the 12th (FS1). Sigi has three choices to step in for the number eight.
