New, 58 comments

The mid-Summer rebuild of the Seattle roster puts them with more high end talent than anyone else in MLS

When Garth Lagerwey set about reinventing the roster via Targeted Allocation and regular Allocation Money, the impact was obvious to fans of Seattle Sounders FC. Now, in EA FIFA 16 it is obvious to the world. Futhead.com just compiled all the ratings of known players in the video game that launches on Sept. 9. The results show that the Sounders are going to be a very popular team among gamers, again.
