It was a cludgy lineup. Like using a knife to dig a trench while trying to survive in the wilderness, Sigi Schmid used the tools available and nearly scraped together a point. The attempted to play a 4-2-3-1 with Marco Pappa as the number 10 and Lamar Neagle as the lone forward did not produce the results needed. Seattle Sounders FC fans likely need to expect more awkward lineups for the near future as Clint, Oba and Pappa are all absent through July.
Players that were used in unusual roles or as first time starters need to learn from their experiences, and learn fast. The next match is Sunday against the dirty Wesen of the South.
This is your chance to rate the players.
A reminder of the scale:
0 or blank - player did not play enough to judge
1 - not a pro (USL/NASL/MLS) quality performance
4 - average USL starter
6 - average MLS starter
9 - MLS All Star
10 - MVP quality performance
This same scale will be used for competitive matches of both Sounders FC and S2.
