Gamethread: Chivas USA Vs. Seattle Sounders, 5/26/12

Ready for another Chivas USA game? Hope so, and hopefully the players are as well, as they are set to host the Seattle Sounders tonight (7:30 pm PDT, Fox Sports West/KWHY). Chivas have gotten four points in the last two matches, while the Sounders are in a bit of a mini-slump, only earning one point in the last two games. Chivas are confident, while Seattle has the players to sap that confidence. Who will emerge victorious? We will find out soon enough.

Take a look at the Three Questions Exchange with Dave Clark, as well as Matthew Hoffman's examination of the Sounders' recent form and possible tactical strategies for Chivas. And don't forget to check out the match preview!

I'll be here providing basic play-by-play and general observations in the comment section. Feel free to jump in and offer your own observations!

Chivas starting XI: Dan Kennedy; Ante Jazic, John Valencia, Danny Califf, James Riley; Alejandro Moreno, Peter Vagenas, Laurent Courtois, Ryan Smith; Jose Correa, Juan Agudelo
