I'm aquiver with anticipation. "Of the chameleon's dish I eat the air promise crammed."

Take it to Seattle. And next THU. I'll see you at the RioT.


Didn't score many goals last year? Well, of COURSE they didn't. And the reason? Two words: Kenny Deuchar. The guy was a complete and total bust. He had no ability to make anything magical happen up front.

And then the move is made and Yura is the primary striker, and what happens?

Goals and wins.

Not to minimize all the other good things happening with the team, but getting rid of Deuchar and moving on to more talented and dynamic talent up front is going to be HUGE this season.



They still tied too much with Yura as the feature attacker. That's why I'm hoping that Escalada brings something to the table.


That's a good article. Number 4 is up to us fans, we have to be loud and proud, never putting our heads down because we are Real Salt Lake. Rally together . . .


GO RSL!!!!!!!!!!!

GO RSL!!!!!!!!!!!

I hope there's a bagpipe player at RioTinto this year. That was cool.

Re: Wrex

There will be a bagpipe player. He was at the game on Saturday and he's been at every game I've ever been too. I'm excited that finally I can see every game! Plus this will be the first time I've been able to have season tickets to anything! Im a little dissapointed that the first game is on a Thursday because the Office will be on but it'll be worth missing it to cheer RSL on to victory! GO REAL SALT LAKE!!!

Great Article

Excellent points.

Bagpiper was at the game last Saturday, playing some new tunes as well. Sounded very cool.


Brilliant strategy: score more points!

That must be one that Dave Checketts figured out.


so pretty much what the article is saying is that RSL needs to win!

RE: leftyjace

Are you kidding me!?! Kenny Deuchar was forming a great partnership with Espindola. When those two were healthy they were awesome. Plus Deuchar didn't get the type of service to score goals. He's not gonna chase down long balls over the top. He needs crosses onto his head. Kenny would have been a great player had we used him the right way. And if you knew anything about soccer you would know that.


We served him up plenty, and he failed to impress. He was a bust, and we sent him packing. He didnt fit into our style, and struggled to find the back of the net. Sorry, but I'm glad we arent waiting a another year to see him "get used" to this league.


I enjoy the comments of my fellow RSL fanatics!!! I am so excited for what promises to be the most exciting season in history of Utah sports!!! The top three goalscorers are back, including Javi who is the man!! The bagpipes will be ringing out into the mountain air and the heavens will shine down on the Rio Tinto!!!!
I will be there every game...with my shin guards on and you will hear me singing with all my lungs: GOOOOOOOO OHHHHHHH OHHHHHHH REAL SALT LAKE!!!! GOOOOOO OHHHHH OHHHHH ALL THE WAY!!! It's our year!!!


This is not a top story and I guarantee this comment will not get posted. Nobody in America cares about soccer! You could spend Obama"s whole stimulus package on soccer marketing and still nobody would care. Soccer is un-American!

.500 Team??

With their record of 10-10-10 last year, RSL earned a total of 40 points, (3 for each of their 10 wins, and 1 point for each of their 10 ties), out of a possible 90 points. So can a math wiz help me understand how 40/90 = .500???

Here is to hoping they make the RioT the same fortress as RES was last year. If we get almost all wins at home, and improve on the road to turning ties to wins, and losses to ties, we will be competing for the Supports Sheild and best record in the league. To much to ask??


I agree with RE: Leftjace. Deuchar is fantastic with headers; the rest of RSL just doesn't seem to be precise enough to give him the crosses that work well with his game.


blah blah blah blah RSL blah blah blah. Why are we wasting column space on this doomed organization?
I wish they would fold already. It's inevitable.


Number 4 is right on the money. Everyone needs to be LOUD! I know last Sat was a preseason game but I expected more people and more noise. Let's not disappoint on Thurs. Loud and proud! Go RSL!!!

re: Garbage

Well if soccer is un-American then why doesn't "America's Game" still belong to America? Who was it that just won the "America's Game"(baseball) championships? Oh that's right it was Japan! Come on over like everyone else is in leaps and bounds! We welcome new comers.


Real Salt lake is the shizzz and I'm sure they'll have an awesome season! oh and by the way soccer is the number one sport in the world!! that's right beatchhhhhhhhhhh

Looks like coach Kries

Is taking lessons from the Jazz on "how to loose on the road"
