Roundup: What the rest are saying about Sounders 2019 trophy prospects

National media thinks the Sounders will contend for the top of the West

Max Aquino / Sounder at Heart

It’s that time of year, where everything is hope and “What ifs?” The Major League Soccer season kicks off tomorrow. Here at Sounder at Heart, we’ve done a pretty good job of preparing you for the Seattle Sounders’ upcoming season, but what are sites around the league saying about your favorite soccer team? Well, let’s take a look.

American Soccer Analysis

Ian from American Soccer Analysis has the best non-Sounder at Heart Sounders’ preview on the web. It is a nice blend of data and tactical analysis. If you read one of these previews, read this one.


Ives Galarcep at anticipates that the Sounders will be contenders for MLS Cup this season. He factors that a healthy Jordan Morris and a full season of Raul Ruidiaz will propel the Sounders to a very excellent MLS regular season.

Major League Soccer Soccer’s video preview of the Sounders rests solely on tired narratives and not much else.

107.7 The End/Full 90 Podcast

You may hear Gregr on the radio in your car, but did you know he’s also a huge Sounders fan? Him and Branden have an hour long podcast preview, where they get really excited for the up coming season.

This is a good high-level overview of the Sounders’ upcoming season.

Matt Doyle, MLS Analyst

Matt Doyle has the Sounders in the tier just below the two elite teams that broke MLS regular season points records last year. Doyle rightly analyses Ozzie’s absence and concludes that neither Cristian Roldan nor Gustav Svensson is Ozzie. But that likely won’t matter.
