It's not only the end of the season, but the start of an off-season.
After the game we asked Kasey Keller if he expects to be the Sounders' goalkeeper next season.
"That’s the plan," he said. "I can’t sign my own contract, but Adrian and I are I think very close to getting something. There was no point kind of finishing it off until the season was over. That just would have been a distraction that nobody needed at that time. The focus was to get through these two games and we obviously fell a little short, but now I heard Adrian taking in that and saying the preparation for next season starts (today) and I’m sure the preparation for next season started a long time ago, but obviously that’s the focus now for management and I’d like to play at least one more year and hopefully we can get that done."
I didn't get a moment with Fredy Montero tonight, but we did as Steve Zakuani if he plans to return and his answer was "We'll see."
