Sounders rally to snatch trophy from Union
by Ridge Mahoney on Wednesday, Sep 17, 2014 12:33 AM EDT
[OPEN CUP: Final] The Philadelphia Union had the home-crowd advantage, and scored first with a goal by Maurice Edu, but Seattle continued its proud heritage to win yet again. Overtime goals by Clint Dempsey and Obafemi Martins swept the Sounders past the Union, 3-1, Tuesday at PPL Park to earn them their fourth Open Cup title in the sixth season since they joined MLS. Seattle won the title in 2009, 2010 and 2011, and lost the 2012 final to Sporting Kansas City on penalty kicks.

Mad Dog and Fighting Pig find home in MLS -- in a good way, of course

"No. Not much. We're both Dutch and that is always a [shared] basis. ... Van Gaal has a good vision of football but it is not mine. He wants to gel winning teams and has a militaristic way of working with his tactics. I want individuals to think for themselves."

-- Johan Cruyff on being asked to compared his soccer philosophy with compatriot Louis van Gaal, currently Manchester United boss. (Guardian)
