The Sounders concluded their four days of Seattle-area work today with a day mostly devoted to fitness testing. However, they ended with some 11-on-11 work, and one of the teams looks a whole lot like a starting lineup:
Here's some of what coach Sigi Schmid had to say about some of the 11-v-11 work.
It's a little bit of a reward always, when you can play 11-v-11," he said. "But we also wanted to play a little bit big. We've got some decision here coming up, pare the roster down a little bit (before) we go into Arizona. It was good. I think they enjoyed playing 11-v-11. There were some good goals, so that was good as well."
And then on cutting down: "We'll probably trim the roster, a little bit. I couldn't tell you now by how many. It could be three to five, something in that neighborhood."
Back with more soon.
