It’s been an interesting time here at the US Soccer AGM. I’ve gotten a lot of great information, and gotten to know a few people as well. Working on a big summary of the event, which will hopefully be up here by Monday at the latest.
As you can also tell by the last story, I was able to take in a couple of Sounders games. Fair to say the Portland result (loss notwithstanding) was promising; Dallas less so. Talking to Coach Schmetzer and the team after the Dallas result, it seemed like lethargy and the end of a long preseason came into play, as well as the time of the game and a game Dallas side. That said, the Sounders did get what they wanted out of the camp (fitness, etc..) so we’ll see how they look once they get back to Seattle.
