We come to you feeling not quite as good as the last time we were gathered. The Sounders are coming off a very disappointing loss which came at the end of a very tumultuous week in which the Sounders felt compelled to apologize to supporters and Roman Torres was given a 10-game ban for testing positive for PEDs.
The game was frustrating on many levels, not the least of which was falling behind 2-0 at home to a team that wasn’t much healthier than the Sounders were and in the midst of some pretty bad overall play.
The one positive was a genuinely outstanding performance from Jordan Morris, who scored his third career brace and was a bit unlucky not to have his first career hat trick.
By the time you listen to this, hopefully, the Sounders will have made at least one new signing although we don’t yet have confirmation of that.
