With Mark Kastner on vacation, Jeremiah took up the role of host. Our very own Tim Foss joined him along with MLSsoccer.com’s Ari Liljenwall. The first segment mostly focuses on looking ahead to the Western Conference finals where the Sounders will visit LAFC. Everyone seems to agree that they think the Sounders will effectively go with what got them here and deploy the familiar 4-2-3-1 formation. The only big questions are around who will start. Victor Rodriguez or Joevin Jones? Brad Smith or Nouhou? Does Xavier Arreaga replace Kim Kee-hee or maybe slot in for an injured Roman Torres?
The second segment looks back at the win over Real Salt Lake. All three came away impressed with the Sounders ability to generate chances despite not having a ton of the ball.
