Winning at Sporting Kansas City is not easy for any team, especially in the extreme heat. But what the Sounders need are points, period, so they needed a gameplan and the execution to escape Children's Mercy Park without losing. That wasn't to be, not even close.
We the raters get the fun task of spreading the blame around to the individual players for this, Seattle's 12th loss of the season.
Just a note: While this loss was a very frustrating one, try to reasonably score individual performances and not the overall play of the team when evaluating each player. Have fun!
Here's the scale:
(Substitutes can be left blank if the 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 - MLS MVP-quality performance
