Ely Allen training with Sounders FC

Who is Ely Allen? He's not Landon Donovan, he's the other guy.

When the former Galaxy winger was released by the team, I playfully joked he should come train with the Sounders FC.

Heck, he's from the Seattle area and played collegiately here. Turns out the front office was one step ahead of me. Allen got some playing time in Argentina with the club and appears to be on trial.

Here's some mention of Allen -- a former Pac-10 Player of the Year at Washington where I covered him as the men's soccer beat writer for the student paper -- from Jose's blog and a post with some video of the hometown hero.

We'll see how he does.
