UPDATED: How to win MLS Cup according to the Sounders

We are not throwing away our shot.*

1. Sign a hometown kid.

I’m young, scrappy, and hungry.

2. Lose your top striker.

But damn, it’s getting dark.


Passionately smashing every expectation.

4. Be counted out by everyone.

We’re gonna rise up... rise up.

5. Part ways with your head coach.

The situation is fraught.

6. Bring in a difference maker.

Let’s get this guy in front of a crowd.

7. Hire a local legend.

Coach Schmetzer
I promise that I’ll make y’all proud.

8. Sideline your star with a broken heart.

Clint and his heart
What are the odds the gods would put us all in one spot.

9. Play for the badge.

Jorstian Mordan
The plan is to fan this spark into a flame.

10. Dance.

This is not a moment, it’s the movement.

11. Sounder together... DON’T. GIVE. UP.

You and I, do or die.


Don’t be shocked when your history book mentions me!
