Sounders Practice Notes [05-29-18]

A relatively short practice today, as the team returns from a couple of days off. Nonetheless, there were a couple of newsy notes from training. First, both Will Bruin and Victor Rodriguez were both out here for the start of practice and involved in training. Victor left a bit earlier Bruin, but Coach Schmetzer sounded ...

Sounders Practice Notes [05-25-18]: Forward Help

A nice overcast day met us at Starfire (and frankly, that was fine with me) for the last practice before the Sounders take on Real Salt Lake tomorrow at 2:00 p.m., and the Sounders it appears have some help for their depleted ranks. Pending receipt of his paperwork from USL, the Sounders have signed 19-year-old ...

Sounders Practice Notes [05-23-18]: Some New/Old Faces

It's annoying to have client meetings cancelled at the last-minute, but my loss is also my gain, as it enabled me to go outside and head back down to Starfire to check out another Sounders practice. Not a cloud in this sky and 70+ degree temperatures isn't a bad way to spend a mid-day. First ...

Sounders Practice Notes [05-22-18]

https://soundcloud.com/miki-turner/brian-schmetzer-interview-52218   A beautiful day out at Starfire, as the team got back on the practice field after having the last couple of days off. It was a fairly intense practice, though it focused mostly on fitness and the like. The best news team-wise is that Will Bruin made his way back out to practice ...

Sounders Practice Notes [05-17-18]: M*A*S*H Unit

  https://soundcloud.com/miki-turner/brian-schmetzer-interview-05-17-18 The Sounders returned to the practice field after three days off, and it's certainly fair to say that this bye week couldn't come at a better time. Injuries and absences left the team with just enough players to do some seven-sided drills. I would have offered to be a body, but I injured ...

Sounders Practice Notes [05-11-18], and Enjoy Your Weekend

A short practice today, as much of the team was understandably still recovering from Wednesday night's trip back from Toronto. Most of the starters were given much of the practice off, and got to leave early. Two bits of good news: Victor Rodriguez was out at practice, though bandaged. But he was doing more than ...

Sounders Practice Notes [04-27-18]

Note: This is becoming something of a weekly feature I suppose. I'll make it a goal to get out once per week, but no promises. A decidedly more overcast day than the last two days here in the Seattle area, as I made my way out Starfire in Tukwila to watch the Sounders practice. A ...

A(nother) Quick Trip to Sounders Practice

It was too nice of a day outside, so why not make another trip out to watch the Sounders practice. This was the first practice of the week since their 2-2 tie versus Sporting Kansas City on Sunday. Here are just a few notes I observed. Injured players on the mend: With the exception of Jordan ...

A Quick (Rainy) Trip to Starfire to Watch Sounders Practice

A cancelled meeting allowed me the opportunity to head down to the Seattle Sounders' training facility at the Starfire Sports Complex in Tukwila, Wa. I try to get down at least once per month just to see how things are going. Sometime I get lucky and am there to break some news. Nothing so interesting this ...

A Fun Night Hanging With Sonarfeed

Always a good time spending 90+ minutes chatting about, well, just about everything. Had a good discussion about the #SaveTheCrew happenings, D.C. United being sold (with a $500 million valuation; I'll have more to say about *that* later), as well as our depression over the start to the Sounders season. The alcohol helped, that's for sure ...

Wednesday Night Fun

I decided that reading 400 pages of legal documents wasn't a fun use of my evening. So: Wednesday night soccer! The great thing about lower division soccer is not being subject to some of the stringent rules you have to deal with at MLS games. Such as: SMOKE! Unfortunately, we didn't score, so no smoke ...

Happy Sounders Matchday

I promise again to keep the Sounders posts to a relative minimum. But hey, it's the opening weekend for MLS and the Sounders. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Update: Well, at least the mimosas and the company were good!
