What Sounders fans are talking about right now...

The GOALSeattle forums (www.SeattleSoccerTalk.com) are getting busier all the time as we approach March 19 and Sounders FC's first-ever match.

Here's some of what is hot in the forums right now:

John Kennedy Hurtado. The buzz is that Seattle are close to announcing the deal for a team mate of Fredy Montero's from Deportivo Cali. Hurtado is a quick, sturdy center back, just what fans have been calling for.

Upgrading the Sounders' defense. Fans are liking what they are hearing up front with the tandem of Nate Jaqua and Fredy Montero looking like a dynamic duo. In the back, though, we seem thin on speed. Before the buzz about Hurtado, fans were talking about how we could upgrade our back line.

Chelsea coming to Seattle. Everyone seems excited about the chance for the fledgling Sounders to match up against the European giants. Grass or plastic?

Getting flagged. The GS flag contest is winding down but the entries are picking up. How is this guy going to get his huge flag into Qwest Field?

Off the pitch. Fans are talking about promos on KZOK, GSSL and a fundraiser by Gorilla FC.
