No respected football shirt blog should be without a Seattle Sounders shirt. And only the best have two! I have already spoken about the awesomeness that is the Sounders so head on over to my other Seattle shirt to read more about them.

I believe this was their third kit in 2012 and it’s pretty damn awesome. The colour is described as “super cyan” – they even create their own colours! Just take a minute to appreciate the greatness.

Second MLS shirt to add to the blog and it’s another lovely shirt in my opinion. This is the 2012-13 away shirt from FC Dallas, who are one of only ten MLS starter clubs having been in the league since its formation in 1996. Until 2005 they were known as Dallas Burn.

They are yet to win the MLS but got close in 2010 before losing in the final of the play-offs to the Colorado Rapids and are currently fifth in the Western Conference which would see them through to the MLS Cup knockout round.

Apart from that I don’t know too much about the club. I have always wanted to visit Texas as it just seems like a crazy place like nowhere else in the World. Unfortunately Dallas has quite a bad name when it comes to sports mainly because of the Dallas Cowboys in the NFL who everybody hates and laughs at.

I’ll give FC Dallas┬áthe benefit of the doubt though as this shirt is lovely. The home is the same but has red instead of blue but I preferred this one. It was also picked up in the CFS sale so it was great value for money. Whatever people’s opinions of the MLS are, their clubs have some awesome shirts!

Seattle Sounders have quickly become one of the biggest teams in American football (no, not that type of football!) in their brief five year existence. They’ve also got a pretty iconic shirt which has gained them fans from around the World.

I don’t personally support an MLS side but always keep an eye out for Sounders results as they currently have Obafemi Martins on their roster (that’s just for my American viewers!) and he is a Birmingham City legend. I also met a Sounders fan at the NFL game between the Jacksonville Jaguars and San Francisco 49ers last year at Wembley. Unfortunately for me as a Jags fan, it was a pretty miserable day. Anyway, on with the shirt…

I have been after a Sounders shirt for a while and I’m very glad to be able to add this one to my collection. This is also the ‘authentic’ version which has the US flag patch heat pressed on the arm and has some nice added details such as the Sounders name inside the lining. To top it off it is also long sleeve which is always an added bonus.

As I mentioned, the Sounders were only added to the MLS as an expansion team in 2009. Since then they’ve become the best supported team in the league and won the Open Cup three years in a row while also losing in the final of the Supporters’ Shield. They are yet to win the MLS but with such a strong support, I’ve no doubt that will come.

They are currently top of the Western Division having won 12 of their 18 games so far. Go Sounders!
