Sounders FC gameday: Blue Kits

The Sounders FC take on the Los Angeles Galaxy tonight in perhaps their most crucial game of the season.

This marks the third successive road game for Sounders FC (7-5-8 and 29 points), who have lost two in a row and gone winless in the last three MLS matches. Meanwhile, the Galaxy (7-3-10, 31) has won five and drawn once in its last six games. It will be the first league home game for L.A.’s David Beckham since his return from a loan to AC Milan.

The recent Sounders losses have dropped them to fourth in the West with their 29 points. Houston is still in 1st with 38 points and they just keep winning. The Galaxy are in 2nd with their 31 points. In 3rd is Colorado with 30 points. And then the Sounders.

So this game is HUGE! The Sounders need a win tonight to stay in the race. A loss and they would fall further in the standings in the West.

And according to Jose Romero over at the Seattle Times, evidently the Sounders will be debuting their blue kits tonight. The blue jerseys and blue shorts with the green socks have not been worn except for in preseason play as pictured above.

Perhaps this change is just what the Sounders FC need.

The match starts at 8:00 PM on KONG TV.

We'll keep you posted after the game.
