Schmid furious after Seattle Sounders fall again

Sigi Schmid was fuming after Seattle Sounders were beaten 2-1 by Real Salt Lake on the weekend.

The Sounders dropped to the bottom of the Western Conference table as they have recorded just one point from four outings and Schmid was extremely disappointed with the way his players had started the 2013 MLS season.

"We're picking and choosing at times when to play. And we have moments in the game where three or four guys are involved and some other guys aren't involved," he said.

"Then some other guys get involved and some of others guys aren't involved. We have yet to get where 11 guys are involved for 90 minutes all the times.

"A lot of that is attitude, but it's training. We have to get it out of them. It's a little bit of leadership when the game is going on. It's anticipating what's going to happen. It's reading the game.

"You can't stand there when a player hits a one-two and let him run past you, and then hold up your hand and hope it's offsides - especially when everybody does it. When a guy runs on a one-two, you get a little bit of a bump in. If you can't get a bump in, then obviously something is wrong.

"I think there's got to be a lot of soul-searching done in that locker room and with us as a staff, as well."
