A Look at The How The Phoenix Coyotes Ended Up In Their Current Situation

Editor’s Note: I reached out to Brendan Porter of Five For Howling to write a piece about ho the Phoenix Coyotes ended up in their current situation.

Should the Sounders Play a 3-5-2?

Everyone recovered from that thriller on Saturday night yet? That’s okay, me neither. Seattle’s brilliant comeback against the Vancouver Whitecaps may have seemed frenzied and disorganized in the moment, but was actually the result of a key tactical switch.

Lots of news trickling out about the Sounders this week; I’ll do my best to run it all down. More key injuries/suspensions/missing players The first part of the Sounders’ season was characterized by a bunch of injuries that helped contribute to the horrendous start. The club finally appeared to be getting healthy, but then Osvaldo ...
