After being defeated by the eventual champions in last season’s Western Conference finals, the Seattle Sounders have a chance to get some early-season revenge Sunday evening against the LA Galaxy.

The Galaxy have sputtered in recent weeks and have been held scoreless in back-to-back contests, while the Sounders recent woes were put in the past with a hard-fought victory over the Houston Dynamo last week.

Prior to Sunday’s night cap, a pair of contenders collide at Providence Park as the Portland Timbers take on Orlando City in Sunday’s opener.

Live Blog MLS Week 6: SBI Live Sunday Commentary



  1. I think Orlando City might play the best brand of soccer in MLS. Great interchanging, movement of the ball, and quick passing that makes them dangerous. Brek Shea looks like a different player, I think all he really needed was a coach who believed in his abilities, and consistent playing time.

    • Francois,….I think you are on to something.

      Couple of notes on this match:

      1. Portland are less Timbers and more like Balsa Wood.
      2. Really enjoyed Orlando’s play,…but MLS must penalize that cheater who dove on the so-called PK. 10 games would do it.
      3. This guy Character is a knucklehead.

      • I’m a neutral and I would say that it was a penalty. Goalkeeper was late off his line and went to ground. There may not have been a ton of contact but it was there none the less and he prevented Rivas from making a clean play on the ball. That being said I think that encroachment on penalties happens a lot but isn’t called much so I think that’s a little harsh. Besides, Chara should have gotten a straight red in the first half. It would have been harsh due to distance from goal but last man and bringing him down from behind. Textbook red.
