Schmid explains lineup considerations for three games/nine days stretch

LogoSoundersAfter playing SKC on Saturday, the Sounders will play the Colorado Rapids at 7 p.m. Wednesday and then the New York Red Bulls at 2 p.m. Saturday.

Coach Sigi Schmid had this to say about how the club decides which players are able to play in all three games

We try to see how they recover. We do different things to measure their recovery. We see what their output was in the game. We see how they recover: OmegaWave gives us a little indication. Obviously, talking to them, asking them how they feel: We want them to be honest with us. You’ve got history with players,

so you know which players sometimes can come and get through it. Does a player have a little bit of a knock? Maybe it’s better to maybe then maybe not push that guy at this point. So, different things.
