From the Top: 1978 Seattle Sounders

We are looking back at all 25 previous seasons of the Seattle Sounders and today we are up to the year 1978. If 1977 was a dream season, 1978 failed to give a proper follow-up. The Sounders found themselves on equal terms (15 wins, 15 , losses) after the regular season.

In the first round of the playoffs the Sounders traveled to Giants Stadium to face the New York Cosmos, the very same club that had beaten them in the 1977 Final. The result wasn't nearly as close this time as Seattle tumbled out after a 5-2 loss.

1978 might best be remembered as the year England great Sir Bobby Moore wore a Sounders kit for seven matches.
