Seattle Sounders manager Brian Schmetzer says that there were some positives from the goalless draw with San Jose Earthquakes.Schmetzer’s team were coming on the back of a 3-1 loss against Los Angeles FC. As a result, there was a greater need for three points to keep the momentum at the start of the campaign. The MLS campaign is coming to a crucial juncture with Seattle Sounders sitting at the top of the table with 31 points. However, the lead could have been much greater if not for the recent dropped points against LAFC and San Jose. Schmetzer, though, is not too concerned about the dropped points against San Jose since there were positives from the game.
“Yeah. I mean they’re – believe it or not there are some positives here. This is always a tricky place to play. I think San Jose has been one of our bogey teams for many years and certainly now with the unorthodox style, the field condition the way it is. You know, their desire to have a little redemption, revenge, whatever you want to call it, for the 7-1 loss – we knew it was going to be a hard game. But we kept a clean sheet, so that’s a positive,” said Schmetzer.
