We're just five days from the opening of both the 2014 MLS season and the Seattle Sounders season opener against Sporting Kansas City. To help you prepare for Saturday's big match, we're back to preview the season and offer up some thoughts about what we expect to see from the Sounders.
We're joined by Thad Bell, managing editor of The Daily Wiz, to preview the match and learn about what SKC have been up to in the offseason as they prepare to defend their 2013 MLS Cup. There's also listener questions and a new sponsor!

After a flurry of roster activity by the Sounders, the show is back to break down all the trades and try to figure out what the plan for 2014 is from Adrian and Sigi. We're joined by NBC Pro Soccer Talk's Richard Farley for an outside perspective on the deals and to make the show sound smarter.
We react to and discuss owner Joe Roth's comments at the Annual Business Meeting...enough said. There's also lots of talk about the future of Eddie Johnson, plenty of listener questions and another round of the Golazo Question of the Week.

The Sounders played pretty well against the Portland Timbers, but an inability to finish their chances and a few all too familiar lapses in defense have them facing a 2-1 deficit heading into the second leg on the road. We talk about what happened on Saturday and what needs to happen on Thursday, and we speak to Michael Orr of Soccer Made In Portland for some perspective on things from the other side.
As usual, we also answer your questions and play a fun round of the Golazo Question of the Week.
Just a quick programming note: Zach wasn't able to join us this week, so Aaron stepped in on the editing duties. He'd like to apologize in advance for not have Mr. Woosley's chops in that department.
