Sounders Insider

Where were Sounders best and worst in MLS?

My story in the Tuesday paper will take a look at where the Sounders -- as a club and as individuals -- finished in the MLS statistical standings, now that the regular season is over.

But first, something to think about: The Sounders were alone atop MLS in one statistical category (other than attendance, and they tied for the lead in one other), and they were last in one statistical category.

Care to guess? Answer below:

The Sounders suffered more fouls than any other team in the league (they tied with Houston for fewest goals allowed), and they put the fewest shots on goal.

Here's a quick roundup of the some the Sounders' team and individual statistical highlights:
