Sounders supporters had clearly been hoping for a continued run of the great play we’d been seeing over the last few games, but the extreme physical play of the Dynamo have been restricting much of their movement.
While Seattle has had more of the possession, Dynamo have been pressing forward well and putting through some nerve-wracking chances. Fredy Montero had a fantastic free kick in the 17th minute, but the keeper pushed it just wide. It’s clear Montero wants to keep his streak (a goal or assist in the last eight games) going.
This game needs to be stretched out. The wingers need to take it wider. And for goodness sake, Alvaro Fernandez needs to take to the field. There’s no reason Nathan Sturgis should still be in midfield. Bring on El Flaco.
