On a related note that's not a good picture of Altidore at all.  He's always been a big dude at all, but looks even moreso in that picture.

Altidore is big, strong, and injury prone. And I think he has gotten bigger for sure. Will that help with his historic hammy issues? Who knows but I think its got to slow him down.

 

He's still going to get featured as the #1 Nats striker but he's not my #1 anymore. I think its time to start pairing Morris and Sargent up top with Pulisic and Arriola on the wings.

Looking forward to El Trafico on Thursday night.  Wish it didn't start at 10:30.  East coast problems.

Two good games last night. Atlanta was solid in their 2-0 win.

 

El Trafico was a really really entertaining game. Even non soccer fans were entertained with all the scoring and I thought it actually should have been 4-4 at the end of regulation. The 5th LAFC goal looked to be off side to me and not sure why Zlatan's goal wasn't good ....the foul called was away from the ball and looked like both players were 50-50 engnaged. I 'd have let that go.  Man what fun that game was!

Well so much for that. Not only did Seattle win they pretty well stomped LAFC. The Sounders know how to ramp it up in the post season and they are peaking at maybe the right time. Interesting match in Atlanta tonight!

Another entertaining game and another strike on my prediction record. If nothing else the last two nights just showed you why they play the games.

 

Go Sounders!
