SBI MLS Season Preview: Real Salt Lake

Soccer By Ives at related • 0 views

Real Salt Lake will be defined by two key features in 2018: youth and consistency.

The youth factor comes from their eight players under the age of 21, including key players Justin Glad and Tony Beltran. Being young means the team is going to need time to grow into itself as RSL looks to contend down the stretch.

Portland is adding 4,000 seats, and two Sounders make the top 10 deals in MLS.

MLS:

Our neighbors to the south are adding some seats so that when there is a national TV game, you can actually hear their fans. It is a cool idea, though I wouldn't go so far as to call it a soccer cathedral as they are.

There was a point when Real Salt Lake and Seattle Sounders met it was a key rivalry game between two upstart expansion sides with high quality and great ambitions. That time is back. Seattle is lead by Garth Lagerwey (formerly of RSL you may have heard) and Brian Schmetzer (Sounder for life) while Salt Lake is under Craig Waibel (a Husky) and Mike Petke (a Red Bull?

This match promises to be a dogfight. The season series between the Los Angeles Galaxy and the Houston Dynamo featured exactly one goal and a lot of physical defending. If that sounds a lot like what Chivas and the Galaxy went through for the bulk of their five games this season, its not coincidence.

And those words are: Pleasantly Surprised.

I watched this game twice, once in person (commenting from the stands on Jen's pre-game posting) and once on the MLSLive.tv stream and both times I was impressed at how the Galaxy ended up playing their game and made the Dynamo adjust to them. How unusual!

And that word is: Punchless.

Or it could be seven words: This team is nothing without Landon Donovan.

So let's start with the positive: shutting out Houston at home in front of a sell-out crowd and forcing Pat Onstad to actually make some saves. Once again Donovan Ricketts proves his worth making a busload of saves and the backline bends but doesn't break.
