In the latest installment of the Philly Soccer Show podcast,  are joined by Seattle Sounders head coach Sigi Schmid.

Sounders coach Sigi Schmid joins co-hosts Greg Orlandini of KYWNewsradio and PSP’s Eli Pearlman-Storch to discuss the powerful Western Conference, including the surprising San Jose Earthquakes, Eddie Johnson and his return from Europe, Osvaldo Alonso’s midfield dominance, as well as concerns about refereeing across the league. And no, neither Schmid nor his players have forgotten the 2-0 home defeat they suffered at the hands of the Union in 2011 and they are keen to reverse their fortunes this Saturday.

Seattle defeated LA Galaxy on Wednesday 2–0 and are currently third in the West Conference with a 5-1-1 record.

In part two, Greg and Eli analyze the Union’s tough lost last Saturday against the Western Conference-leading San Jose Earthquakes in which a stoppage time goal by Steven Lenhart of the Quakes broke a 1-1 tie, sending the Union to defeat at home for the second time this year.

Gabriel Gomez scored for Philadelphia, giving him a team-leading three on the year.

While the Union’s defense played well for the most of the game, the team continues to be unable to generate much offense.
