Sure, the Sounders lost last week, but that was with a roster that was missing 13 players due to international call-up, injury or suspension. Both the left back and defensive midfield positions featured starters who had yet to start at those positions this year, Luis Silva was playing as a No. 10 for the first time since 2017 and the centerback duo had played together just once before. The resulting 2-0 loss was hard to watch, but also a rather pointless exercise in terms of trying to learn much from.
With that in mind, we took more of a big-picture approach to this week’s episode. We gushed about the development of Jordan Morris into one of the United States’ top offensive players and discuss whether or not the Sounders should be doing a better job of avoiding internationals. Enjoy.
