Sigi Schmid urges Seattle Sounders 'not to panic' over injuries, slow start

Jermaine Jones, Luis Solignac and Kevin Doyle scored and Colorado beat Seattle for its third straight victory.

Seattle Sounders coach Sigi Schmid urged his team "not to panic" as mounting injuries are compounding a slow start to the season.

The Sounders have just seven points from as many games and are second from bottom in the Western Conference.

Without injured forwards Clint Dempsey and Nelson Valdez, they suffered their fourth defeat of the season on Saturday, 3-1 at the Colorado Rapids.

Schmid was critical of his players after the game, saying "there was no leadership on the field" and "we beat ourselves...

Gio dos Santos, Steven Gerrard help Galaxy rout RSL; Union beat NYCFC

Emmanuel Boateng had a goal and two assists and the LA Galaxy beat Real Salt Lake 5-2.

Giovani dos Santos and Steven Gerrard scored to highlight the LA Galaxy's 5-2 win over Real Salt Lake on Saturday night.

RSL keeper Nick Rimando, making his 400th MLS start, saved Gerrard's penalty in the sixth minute and Juan Manuel Martinez gave the Utah club the early lead on a header 10 minutes later.

But Gyasi Zardes tied it for LA with a right-footed blast in the 19th minute and Mike Magee smashed in Emmanuel Boateng's cross for the go-ahead goal in the 26th.

Boateng scored his first MLS goal...

Ignacio Piatti's late winner lifts Impact as Columbus Crew SC earns first win

Montreal Impact with Drogba in tow head to a Chicago Fire side looking to stretch a 4 match unbeaten streak.

Ignacio Piatti completed the Montreal Impact's comeback with a stoppage-time winner from distance in a 2-1 victory at the Chicago Fire on Saturday.

Kennedy Igboananike opened the scoring for Chicago in the 29th minute with a fine curling effort from the side of the 18-yard box.

But Montreal were back level in the second half as Didier Drogba, who came on as a substitute minutes earlier, scored his first goal of the season with a backheeled finish.

Chicago went close to taking the lead again...

How Sounders can turn it around

Clint Dempsey's Seattle Sounders have had a rough start to the MLS season.
Clint Dempsey's Seattle Sounders have had a rough start to the MLS season.

Things haven't gone according to plan this season for the Seattle Sounders. The club, which has never missed the MLS Cup playoffs since joining the league in 2009, sits in last place in the Western Conference with just one win in five matches (1-3-1). It ranks near the bottom of the league in goals scored (four, tied for second-fewest), shots attempted (59, fifth-fewest) and shots on goal (19, third-fewest).

Heading into this season, the Sounders were riding a long stretch of success going back to my time with the club (2009-11). And while the team has evolved since then in terms of lineup and playing style, it has consistently finished near the top of the standings. But having yet again fallen short of MLS Cup last year after another promising season -- and with the rival Portland Timbers making an improbable run to the 2015 title -- this early-season dip has folks around the Emerald City wondering if the playoff streak might be in jeopardy.

Many fans and media members are pointing to the team's lack of scoring opportunities -- and deservedly so -- for the bulk of its struggles, but there are other challenges that have contributed, including major roster turnover, youngsters learning the ropes, a new formation and the dynamics of the league's salary structure. There's plenty of time to bounce back -- just look at the Timbers last year -- but there are definitely issues to sort out.

Here's a look at where and why the Sounders have dropped off this season and what the club needs to do to turn its season around:

Roster overhaul, youth/adjustment struggles ...

Sounders' Sigi Schmid: USL prepares players better than NCAA

Chad Marshall's goal at the death offset Giles Barnes' stunning first-half goal to help Seattle steal a point in Houston.

Oalex Anderson, a St. Vincent and the Grenadines international, has played well off the bench for Seattle this season.

Seattle Sounders coach Sigi Schmid says Oalex Anderson's experience at the club's USL affiliate has prepared him for MLS better than Jordan Morris' time in college.

Anderson, 20, has been a spark off the bench for Seattle this season while Morris, 21, has yet to score in his first five games, four of which he's started.

Despite playing with the U.S. senior team, Morris only became a professional this year after winning the NCAA championship with Stanford in December.

Anderson also has international...
