We’re now just a days away from the Seattle Sounders’ first game as defending MLS Cup champions. Has a pretty nice ring to it, right?
Well, we figured we better get the band together for a season preview, inviting Richard Farley onto the show to give us another perspective on the Sounders as well as the rest of the competition.
We all seemed to agree that FC Dallas and Toronto FC are probably the biggest threats to unseating the Sounders. We’ve also decided that if the Portland Timbers can’t put it together with the squad they assembled that the guy who deserves the blame is almost certainly Caleb Porter.
In between the Sounders and MLS segments, we sit down with Harry Shipp. Suffice it to say, you’re probably going to end up rooting for him after listening to this interview. Shipp talked extensively about how he never felt his head was right in Montreal and was generally quite introspective. This is a player who seems to have a coaching career in his future.
This week's music: "Star Blazers Theme", Perry Como - "Seattle", Grace Love & The True Loves - "Shake It Out", Woody Guthrie - "Roll On Columbia"
