Seattle returns to MLS play Saturday at Chicago. And that will represent the Fire’s first game under Frank Klopas, the team’s technical director since 2008. He will replace Carlos de los Cobos, who was done in by the club’s 1-4-6 start.

Here’s the report from Chicago.

Meanwhile, Vancouver also released Teitur Thordarson. In my few dealings with Thordarson I liked pretty much everything about him expect spelling his name. But again, there was no way around that 1-5-6 record, especially with expansion twin Portland off to a solid start.

Here’s that report.

    Vancouver was more than a little too quick with the trigger. I hope, as an expansion team, they show more patience with their players.

  3. EverydayFan says:

    Sounders need to go into this game with a strong mentality – don’t take Chicago lightly just because they are sacking their coach … sometimes that motivates the players to raise their game to show the ownership that “I’m not the problem here.”

    Be ready!
