Al Hinton, Sounders Color Analyst, joined Kevin on the show today to talk about tonight’s FC Sounders match against FC Barcelona.

Hinton talked about Barcelona left winger/striker Lionel Messi, being among the best players in the world, saying, “I would say he is the best in the world…He lulls defenders in, they think they’re going to get the ball off him, and then he’s gone.”

Hinton also talked about the difference between soccer in Europe and the MLS, saying, ” I think the difference is that in the big leagues(Europe) it is a severe crime in the eyes of coaches to give the ball away too easily to the opposition, because it’s very hard to get the ball away from really top class players. I think Major League Soccer is in a good position right now(though).It’s a different league.”
