It has been awhile and we have traveled a lot and played some good games. Last Saturday was incredible.

The game had everything. It was end-to-end and had some first-class finishing on our part. Great hat trick by Montero. Johnson has been hot so teams started to focus on him and then Montero gets more space. Now with Montero hot, the focus will shift to him and then the space opens up for Eddie again. It is great to have two outstanding strikers.

We knew that Chivas would be a little desperate and throw a lot of players forward. That made it hard for our defense but allowed our offense to get some great chances. I hope you all enjoyed the six goals. I know I did.

This week is the travel week and we have two games to play. We leave Seattle on a 6 a.m. flight to arrive in Port of Spain in Trinidad at 9 p.m. A long day. We play Caledonia in the CCL game on Thursday and then fly to Dallas through Miami on Friday. Another early flight. Sleep is the most important thing for recovery and those early morning flights rob us of some important sleep. But we will make due and suck it up to compete in every game we play.

Watch us on the television and we feel your support always.

Take care

Getting ready for Real Salt Lake

We just arrived in Salt Lake for our game against Real. The flight was delayed by an hour but everything beyond that went smoothly. The team is relaxed but ready. You can sense the anticipation.

Refereeing is part of the game

As a coach -- and especially as coach of the Sounders -- I know that refereeing is part of the game.

After busy week, time for rival Portland

It was nice to sleep in our own beds this past week. After all our travel that was an excellent change for us. This week we are at home again before we travel to Portland on Friday.

Overcoming the rigors of long-distance travel

Well, last week was a long trip and then some. Traveling is great when you are on vacation and going to places you enjoy and can stay for a while with no time schedules.
