REAL SALT LAKE vs MONTRÉAL IMPACT RIO TINTO STADIUM, Sandy, Utah April 4, 2012 (WEEK 5, MLS Game #36) 7 p.m. MT (KUCW-30; TVA) Real Salt Lake return to Rio Tinto Stadium where they will meet the expansion Montréal Impact for the first time ever in a midweek clash. Real are coming off a thrilling late victory at the Portland Timbers last weekend, their only road encounter in a five-game span. The Impact are concluding a three-game road swing still looking for their first points away from Québec after a 5-2 loss at New York last Saturday. REFEREE: Ricardo Salazar. SAR (bench): Peter Manikowski; JAR (opposite): Jeff Muschik; 4th: Allen Chapman MLS Career: 147 games; FC/gm: 27.0; Y/gm: 3.5; R: 42; pens: 54 INJURY REPORT: REAL SALT LAKE – OUT: FW Cody Arnoux (R adductor strain); QUESTIONABLE: MF Will Johnson (R adductor strain); PROBABLE: DF Nat Borchers (L quadriceps strain) … MONTREAL IMPACT – OUT: DF Nelson Rivas (L hamstring strain); FW Eduardo Sebrango (L groin strain); DF Hassoun Camara (R quad strain); PROBABLE: FW Justin Braun (L groin strain) INTERNATIONAL ABSENCES: none SUSPENDED: none HEAD-TO-HEAD ALL-TIME: First meeting.  This is the only league meeting between the teams this season.  Coaches record: Jason Kreis vs. MTL: first game … Jesse Marsch vs. NY: first game REAL SALT LAKE Real Salt Lake rebounded from their first loss of 2012 in dramatic fashion, scoring the tying and winning goals after the 89th minute for a 3-2 win Saturday against the Portland Timbers at Jeld-Wen Field. Real are in a three-way tie atop the Western Conference with 9 points from 4 games. LAST MATCH  RSL took the lead late in the first half. Portland’s Rodney Wallace was whistled for a handball in the area by referee Jorge Gonzalez made the call, and Alvaro Saborío beat goalkeeper Troy Perkins with the resulting penalty.  Nagbe then pulled Portland level three minutes after the halftime break. Just inside the area, he received a perfectly placed pass from Eric Alexander, sidestepped RSL's Kyle Beckerman and looped a low shot past RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando.  Then in the 66th minute, Alexander found Nagbe again, this time at the top of the area on the left side. The second-year player juggled once and volleyed a dipping strike between two defenders and past the outstretched hands of goalkeeper Nick Rimando, under the crossbar.  But Real silenced the sell-out crowd in the 89th minute, when Jonny Steele skipped his way through a host of Timbers defenders in the area and placed a left-footed shot past Perkins.  And then, three minutes into stoppage time, Beckerman completed the comeback. Fabián Espíndola found room on the left side and stabbed a cross to the top of the box. Beckerman struck a full volley from the top of the box straight into the bottom left corner of the net for the shocking game-winner.  Real head coach Jason Kreis made three changes to the team that fell 1-0 to Chivas USA at Rio Tinto Stadium. Nat Borchers, Javier Morales and Alvaro Saborio all made their first starts of the year, in place of Chris Schuler, Sebastian Velasquez and Fabian Espindola.  REAL SALT LAKE (4-3-1-2): Nick Rimando - Tony Beltran (Jonny Steele 78), Jamison Olave, Nat Borchers, Chris Wingert – Luis Gil (Will Johnson 59), Kyle Beckerman, Ned Grabavoy - Javier Morales - Paulo Junior (Fabian Espindola 70), Alvaro Saborio. TEAM NEWS  Real’s late comeback for their 3-2 win in Portland was the second-latest in overturning a deficit in club history. In a 2-1 win against D.C. United on July 29, 2006, Jeff Cunningham scored goals in the 90th minute and five minutes into stoppage time for a 2-1 RSL victory.  “I felt like we were going to score but I don’t want to say too much as I would have been happy with a tie,” said RSL head coach Jason Kreis. “However, I felt that the third goal was a little bit of a gift and I walked away with a smile on my face.”  With Alvaro Saborio making his first start of the season, it was Fabian Espindola who was sacrificed to the substitutes’ bench as Paulo Junior maintained his starting place. But Espindola set up the winning goal.

“I knew he saw me with his vision that he has,” Beckerman said. “He just put it up … and I had a hit at the ball, and luckily it went in. Said Kreis: Obviously to have [Espíndola] out there, you know he’s capable of pulling off a special play, and tonight he did it again.” Jonny Steele also made a difference in his third MLS appearance – all off the substitutes’ bench – scoring his first league goal. “Tonight, the guys who came off the bench were arguably the most important players we had,” Kreis told KTVX-TV. “Whether or not you’re starting or coming off the bench, you’ve always got to be ready to contribute.” Nat Borchers also returned to the lineup for the first time this season, coming into central defense in place of Chris Schuler. The win in Portland was in the only road game in a five-match span for Real. They now return home for two games this week; RSL lost to Chivas USA 1-0 after opening their home campaign with a 2-0 win vs. New York. “We will take some confidence boosts from this, and of course winning a game gives it to you,” said Beckerman. “But we have to turn around and get ready for the game on Wednesday because it doesn’t stop. You have to take it one game at a time.”

MONTREAL IMPACT The Montreal Impact suffered a second loss in as many games on their road swing, falling 5-2 to the New York Red Bulls on Saturday afternoon at Red Bull Arena. The Impact are tied for eighth place in the Eastern Conference with 1 point from 4 matches. LAST MATCH  The Impact took the lead after just 19 minutes, when a bouncing ball got away from New York center back Markus Holgersson and allowed Sanna Nyassi to race onto it and fire home easily from close range.  New York equalized nine minutes later when Thierry Henry headed home a beautiful cross from Rafa Márquez. The Mexican international was given plenty of space on the right side and he picked out Henry, who made a well-timed run.  But the expansion side were back in front in the 38th minute. Justin Mapp received a pass on the left flank and was allowed time and space to drive across the top of the box, firing a low shot that beat goalkeeper Ryan Meara inside his right post.  Yet the hosts pulled level once again in first-half stoppage time after Matteo Ferrari was whistled for a foul on Dax McCarty inside the area. Kenny Cooper claimed the spot kick and scored with a shot down the middle of the goal.  The Red Bulls took the lead in the 56th minute. A pass that was picked off by McCarty, and he found Henry at the top of the box. Henry turned and fired a pinpoint shot inside the near post past Donovan Ricketts, who was at full stretch.  New York built on their lead in the 72nd minute through a finish from substitute Mehdi Ballouchy that was set up by Henry. Solli whipped in a low cross from the right that the veteran striker flicked on to Ballouchy, who got a slight touch on the ball to put it in back of the net.  Henry then capped the scoring and recorded his first hat trick with the Red Bulls a minute before the end, knocking in a rebound after Ricketts spilled a shot from Cooper.  Impact head coach Jesse Marsch made two changes to the team that suffered a 2-0 loss to the Columbus Crew at Columbus Crew Stadium. Zarek Valentin came in at right back for the suspended Jeb Brovsky, while Bernardo Corradi started in place of Justin Braun.  MONTREAL IMPACT (4-4-2): Donovan Ricketts - Zarek Valentin (Andrew Wenger 65), Tyson Wahl, Matteo Ferrari, Josh Gardner - Davy Arnaud, Felipe Martins, Patrice Bernier, Justin Mapp (Lamar Neagle 85) - Sanna Nyassi, Bernardo Corradi (Justin Braun 77). TEAM NEWS  The Impact became the first expansion team to concede five goals in a game in their inaugural season since both Real Salt Lake and Chivas USA each did it twice in 2005 (RSL, 1-5 vs Chivas USA, July 9, 2005; 1-5 at D.C. United, Aug. 31, 2005; Chivas USA, 2-5 vs. FC Dallas, May 22, 2005; 2-5 at Chivas, June 4, 2005).  “I think there was a lot of frustration from everybody at halftime,” Montreal head coach Jesse Marsch said. “We tried to maintain the focus to the game at hand because we still felt that if we continued to play like we did in the first half, that we’d be able to find chances and get a lead.”  With Jeb Brovsky suspended, Zarek Valentin made his first Impact appearance, coming in at right back and playing 65 minutes.  Bernardo Corradi was given his first starting assignment, after two appearances off the substitutes’ bench, starting up top in place of Justin Braun.  For the second time in as many games the Impact conceded a penalty kick, this time a vital one that left the match tied 2-2 at halftime.

“The penalty is frustrating for sure, but we probably could have taken a 3-1 lead,” Patrice Bernier said. “We had good opportunities in the first half, and I thought we were the better team then. Maybe we were a bit frustrated when entering the dressing room." The Impact have now taken leads in two of their four games this season, coming away with one point from those two games. “When you’re coming to halftime at 0-0 or 2-2, it's still anybody's game,” left back Josh Gardner said. “I thought we had better chances in the first half. We were a little unfortunate not to score maybe one or two more. I don’t think that penalty changes anything. It’d be nice to go into halftime with the lead, but at the end of the day, we’ve got to come out and compete. We cannot give up three goals in the second half.”

RSL - MTL CONNECTIONS: Salt Lake City native

son Justin Braun (Skyline H.S., Salt Lake Community College) makes his 4th return to Rio Tinto Stadium in an opposing uniform, but his first since becoming a member of the expansion Impact in November ... He did score once for Chivas USA against RSL in LA back in 2010 ...

For the second time in as many road games in 2012, RSL erased a late deficit with both the equalizing and gamewinning goals to capture the full 3 points at one of Major League Soccer’s most difficult venues ...

Joining Braun on the Quebecois former RSL MF Collen Warner, the team’s top overall draft pick in 2010 out of the University of Portland ... Warner played 44 games across all competitions in an RSL uniform, scoring 1 goal in the group-clinching 3-1 home win vs Cruz Azul in Oct. 2010 and tallying 7 assists before being selected by Jesse Marsch and Impact GM Matt Jordan in the expansion draft last winter ...

In Saturday’s 3-2 win at JELD-WEN Field in Portland, RSL rode a Jonny Steele equalizer in the 89’ to knot things up at 2-2 before Captain Kyle Beckerman blasted home the winner at the death (93+’) - from almost the exact same spot on the field as Steele - to defeat the Timbers for the first time in three attempts ...

Jordan trained with RSL GM Garth Lagerwey and Asst. Coach Jeff Cassar as a goalkeeping understudy and a teammate of Jason Kreis’ in Dallas from 1998-2002, was a teammate of Ned Grabavoy’s with the 2005 Columbus Crew and spent the 2006 season in Colorado with Kyle Beckerman & Chris Wingert ...

However, the pair of come-from-behind road wins in March at LA and at PDX - two of the most difficult places to win a year ago - equals the total road comebacks the team has had in its first 7 seasons ...

Marsch, the Impact’s Head Coach, spent 8 years as a teammate on the Chicago Fire from 1998-2005 with RSL Asst. Coach C.J. Brown ... In 2005, the Fire boasted a young impact developmental player - current RSL MF Will Johnson ...

CARDIAC KIDS CREATE KILLER COMEBACK:

In Sept 2008, RSL came from behind to win 3-2 in San Jose on a Yura Movsisyan goal that was a ripping point in qualifying for he club’s first-ever playoff berth, while a year later, against Columbus in the Eastern Conference Semis, came from behind to shock defending champion Columbus - also by a 3-2 scoreline - en route to the MLS Cup 2009 title, the state of Utah’s first major league professional championship in nearly 40 years ...

STELLAR SUBS STEP UP TO SCORESHEET:

All three of RSL Head Coach Jason Kreis’ second-half subs - MF Will Johnson, making his 2012 debut; FW Fabian Espindola, making his first substitute appearance; and MF Jonny Steele - found their way onto the scoresheet, as Johnson assisted on the Steele goal, and it was Espindola’s vision that set up Beckerman winner ...

Impact GK Donovan Ricketts and DF Shavar Thomas each played on the Jamaica National Team with RSL Head Scout Andy Williams ... DF Zarek Valentin and RSL MF Luis Gil toured Holland together in the winter with the Generation adidas tour, and both have been part of various U.S. Youth National Teams together ... Impact players Lamar Neagle (Seattle) and Josh Gardner (Los Angeles) each scored their first MLS goals against RSL with former teams prior to coming to Montreal ...


REAL SALT LAKE v MONTREAL IMPACT WEDNESDAY APRIL 4 2012

7:00PM MT

RIO TINTO STADIUM SANDY, UT

FIRST OF FIVE “3-GAME WEEKS” IN 2012:

HOME OF THE ELEVATED HEART RATE:

3/31 @ POR (3-2 W); 4/4 v MTL; 4/7 v COL 4/21 @ SJ; 4/25 @ DAL; 4/28 v TOR 5/5 v NE; 5/9 @CHI; 5/12 @ SEA 6/16 @ CHV; 6/20 v LA; 6/23 v SJ 6/30 @ CLB; 7/4 v SEA; 7/7 v POR

The March 24 loss to Chivas last time out dropped RSL to 49-8-17 in its last 74 home games since the beginning of 2008, Jason Kreis’ first full season at the helm ... In that span, RSL has outscored opponents by 92 goals (145-53), with a 39-6-15 reg. season mark (120/44), 5-1-0 CCL record (15/5), 3-1-1 playoffs (5/2) and 2-0-1 int’l exhibition (5/2) ...

This week’s POR / MTL / COL trio of games marks the first of at least five stanzas this year that sees RSL play 3 games in 8 days, testing depth, travel legs and stamina for the roster ...

Should RSL progress through the first 2 Open Cup rounds (May 29 & June 5), the 2012 Lamar Hunt USOC Quarterfinal Rounds would be on Tues, June 26 a 7th game in the 23-day span from June 16 to July 7 ...

THREE-GAME WEEKS PILE UP: In the Jason Kreis era, RSL has played 3 games in a week a total of 18 times (in all competitions), registering a 26-21-17 record … As indicated in RED below, RSL is 4-1-2 when opening a 3-game week on the road, followed by a pair of home tilts … The overall list: 2011:

RSL concludes an early-season homestand that sees Rio Tinto Stadium host 4 out of 5 games with this midweek match v expansion side Montreal and Saturday’s first of three Rocky Mountain Cup tilts against rival Colorado ...

HOME DEBUTS AGAINST EXPANSION SIDES:

Expansion sides have not fared well in their inaugural Utah visits over the years, posting a 1-6-1 mark and being outscored 16-5 by RSL on their first time in Zion ... In the final regular-season matchday of 2011, the expansion Portland Timbers rolled into Rio Tinto Stadium and earned a shock draw when a late Futty Danso goal forced a 1-1 tie ... The only other expansion team to earn points in Utah on their first visit to the Wasatch Front was Toronto, on a disputed PK late on July 4, 2007 ... The list: Exp.

SHOCKINGLY RARE LOSS AT RIO TINTO:

While the come-from-behind 3-2 win at Portland Saturday gave RSL what it felt was a deserved 3 points after another dominating possession-game performance, Wednesday’s tilt against Montreal will give the Claret & Cobalt a chance to overcome the bitter 0-1 home loss suffered to Chivas back on March 24, RSL’s last time out at Rio Tinto Stadium ... That setback was just the Utah side’s eighth on home soil since the inception of the 2008 season, dropping the Kreis-led team to 49-8-17 on the Wasatch Front across all competitions in that span ... Those losses: 8/26/08 11/02/08 5/16/09 4/27/11 5/28/11 7/30/11 9/28/11 3/24/12

YET ANOTHER SELLOUT AT THE RIOT:

Unfortunately for Real Salt Lake, four of those eight home losses have come in front of sellout crowds at Rio Tinto Stadium, with RSL posting only a 5-5-4 mark when “The RioT” is packed to capacity ... The sellouts:

9/28/11 v CHI 3/26/11 v LA 10/19/10 v CAZ 3/24/11 v CHV 10/22/11 v POR 4/27/11 v MTY 10/16/10 v DAL 10/9/08 v NY 11/15/08 v NY 9/17/11 v KC 5/16/09 v KC 6/6/09 v COL 7/24/10 v CHV 7/22/11 v SJ

* sellout w/ diminished “concert stage” capacity

All-time, the club is is 17-12-16 across all competitions when playing before 18,000+ fans at home, at either Rice-Eccles Stadium (4-6-9 from 2005-08) or Rio Tinto Stadium (13-6-7 from 2008-present) ...

SABORIO STRIKES BACK:

On Saturday, RSL assumed the early lead when a superb pass by FW Alvaro Saborio freed MF Ned Grabavoy in alone on Timbers GK Troy Perkins, but Grabavoy’s controlling touch was slapped down intentionally by DF Rodney Wallace ... Saborio then buried the resultant PK, making him a perfect 9-for-9 from the spot in an RSL uniform (6-for6 in reg. season games, 3-for-3 in CONCACAF) ... RSL improves to 21-3-5 in games in which Saborio - who has 35 goals in 65 games since arriving in Utah in early 2010 - finds the back of the net ... (the last loss coming in the 2011 West Final at LA, and the only loss prior to 9/24 at DC was the rain-soaked 4-5 loss at Cruz Azul), compared to the 13-15-14 mark when he plays and does not score, as well as RSL’s 7-3-4 record when Sabo is unavailable …

SCRATCH PORTLAND OFF THE LIST:

Saturday’s dramatic comeback win allowed the team to defeat the Timbers for first time in 3 tries and scratch Portland off list of places the team has never won, which now includes just Philadelphia (2 attempts), Canada (7) and Texas (17) ... RSL travels to Philly (Aug. 24), Vancouver (Aug. 11), Dallas (April 25) and Houston (Sept. 6) later this year ... Since Jason Kreis took over in May, 2007, RSL’s MLS road mark is 17-39-22, with the new team mark of five road wins in 2011 exceeding the four achieved in 2010, and more than doubling the two earned in each of the 2007-09 seasons … Last year’s 5-8-4 road mark was good for 19 points, matching the 2010 team-record total (4-4-7 in 2010) …

RIO TINTO STADIUM SANDY, UT

ROAD WARRIORS SEEK 2012 TURNAROUND: RSL starts the season 2-0-0 on the road for 2nd straight year, also winning at San Jose and at New England last season out of the gates ...

Once the worst road team in the history of MLS, Real Salt Lake has recently stepped up on the road when competition is fiercest, winning critical postseason matches (2-4-0, with two shootout wins) on the road and performing well away from home (1-2-3, with one loss at Saprissa still winning series) in hostile CONCACAF Champions League territory … A recent advent of road success places the squad’s alltime MLS regular season road mark at 21-63-27 (.301; 106 GF / 185 GA) following the 111th road contest in League play on March 31 at Portland …

ROAD TO MISERY PAVED WITH ... TURF?:

While the pinnacle of RSL’s 7+ year existence came on artificial turf in its MLS Cup 2009 victory over Los Angeles at what was then named Qwest Field in Seattle, the team has not fared well on the fake stuff ... Last year, RSL advanced out of two knockout series with turf losses at Saprissa (CCL Semis) and at Seattle (West Semis), but posted an overall 2-4 mark with additional losses at Portland (0-1) and at Vancouver (0-3) ... The pair of victories came at New England (2-0) and at Seattle (2-1) in reg. season play ... All-time, RSL owns a woeful record on turf, as the team is 4-13-8 in all competitions on fake grass, being outscored 22-49 …

FANTASTIC FABIAN FOREBODING FINDLEY:

FW Fabian Espindola scored his 28th career regularseason goal on 3/17 v NY, providing the game-winner in the 2-0 home win against the Red Bulls ... That strike leaves Fabi - recipient of a new 4-year contract this offseason - just one goal shy of matching former RSL FW Robbie Findley’s 29 career goals for the club’s alltime lead ... Saborio is not far behind, with 24 career goals in 54 games, nearly half as many all-time games played as Findley (96) and Espindola (99) ... Espindola has increased his goal output each year with RSL, sharing time with Findley, Yura Movsisyan, Paulo Junior and Saborio, primarily ... With both Saborio and Espindola notching 10 goals last season, RSL boasted a pair of double-digit scorers for the first time in its seven-year history … RSL’s single-season double-digit scoring list: SINGLE-SEASON GOALS – RSL YEAR PLAYER GP 2011 Alvaro Saborio 23 Fabian Espindola 27 2010 Alvaro Saborio 27 2009 Robbie Findley 27 2006 Jeff Cunningham 31

ALL-TIME RESULTS, WITHOUT JAVIER:

Since Javier Morales arrived on the Wasatch Front, RSL has played 51 MLS regular-season/playoff, CCL or Open Cup games without its playmaker, posting a 22-1614 overall mark (only 7-12-5 away from home) … Head Coach Jason Kreis’ team has gone 17-14-12 in MLS reg. season play, 0-0-1 Playoff, 3-0-0 in CONCACAF and 1-2-1 in Open Cup sans Javi … Since 2009, that record is 1813-11, scoring 2+ goals in only 20 of those 42 games ...

LONGEST-TENURED CORE IN MLS HISTORY:

The Kreis/Lagerwey “Team is the Star” mantra has long been lauded for its simple, unselfish approach that has redefined the culture of an organization and enabled a small-market club to compete annually with DP-laden payrolls ... The philosophy that the whole can be greater than the sum of its parts is perfectly epitomized by the fact that TEN players return this year, with the 2012 MLS season marking the group’s fifth or sixth campaign in Claret & Cobalt ... The list: Player GK Kyle Reynish GK Nick Rimando DF Chris Wingert MF Kyle Beckerman MF Javier Morales FW Fabian Espindola DF Tony Beltran DF Nat Borchers DF Jamison Olave MF Will Johnson

Acquisition Date Jan., 2007 Feb. 2007 June, 2007 July, 2007 August, 2007 August, 2007 Jan., 2008 Feb., 2008 March, 2008 July, 2008

RSL GP 5 147 126 125 102 99 60 121 103 89

Back on 3/10 at LA, this group marked 5+ seasons together and set a new MLS record, breaking the current one held by New England, which saw 8 players compete together from the 2003-07 seasons ... That group was: Joe Franchino, Jay Heaps, Shalrie Joseph, Marshall Leonard, Pat Noonan, Steve Ralston, Matt Reis & Taylor Twellman ...

UNPRECEDENTED TURNOVER FOR KREIS:

The price of keeping that group together, however, came in the form of a massive offseason overhaul of the team’s depth, Kreis, Lagerwey and the RSL technical staff introducing 8 new faces to the 2012, the most since the 2007/08 offseason, the duo’s first in charge of the club ... Gone are GK Tim Melia (0 RSL games played), FW Chris Agorsor (1 gp), DF Blake Wagner (2 gp), DF Rauwshan McKenzie (11 gp, now signed with Chivas), MF Collen Warner (37 gp, selected by Montreal in expansion draft), MF Jean Alexandre (38 gp, traded to SJ) and DF Robbie Russell (78 gp, traded to D.C. United) ... The most notable absence from RSL’s locker room is that of MF Andy Williams, whose seven-year tenure as an “RSL Original” came to end with his retirement in December, 2011 ... Williams played 14 years in MLS, bouncing from Columbus, to New England, to New York, to Miami and finally to Chicago in his first 7 seasons, the 1998 Jamaica World Cup veteran coming to RSL in November, 2004 as the club’s top expansion draft pick ... Williams went on to play a club-record 189 games for RSL, with 14 goals, 29 assists and one MLS Cup ring marking his time on the Wasatch Front ...

RIO TINTO STADIUM SANDY, UT

IDENTIFYING NEW BLOOD, THE RSL WAY:

The RSL time for “Bomma” is not over, however, as Williams immediately accepted a position as the club’s Head Scout, working with Lagerwey, Kreis and the technical staff to identify players of all ages for RSL’s senior, academy and youth teams, including many of the new faces beginning their MLS and/or professional careers now ... Those players include: GK Lalo Fernandez (signed as Home Grown) DF Terukazu Tanaka (Discovery - Jan. 2012) DF Leone Cruz (via trade from SEA 1/17/12) DF Diogo de Almeida (MLS SuperDraft 2012) MF Jonny Steele (Discovery - Feb. 2012) MF Sebastian Velasquez (MLS SuperDraft 2012) MF Enzo Martinez (MLS SuperDraft 2012) FW Emiliano Bonfigli (MLS Supplemental Draft 2012)

JUST HOW DEEP IS THE RSL BENCH?:

With the Portland-Montreal-Colorado games stacked this week, RSL boss Jason Kreis will no doubt return to a rotation policy at most positions on the pitch to keep everyone as fresh as possible ... On Saturday, perennial starters Saborio, Morales & Borchers returned to the selection for first time this year, joining Rimando, Olave & Beckerman in a setup that has been quite familiar to RSL fans since 2008 (Sabo joined in 2010) ... The upcoming weeks could see the 2012 RSL starting XI debuts for one of Saturday’s heroes, Jonny Steele, as well as MF Will Johnson, GK Kyle Reynish, DF Terukazu Tanaka and MF Yordany Alvarez ... Other RSL players yet to appear in 2012 include GK Lalo Fernandez, DF Leone Cruz, DF Diogo de Almeida, MF Enzo Martinez, FW Cody Arnoux & FW Emiliano Bonfigli ...

VELASQUEZ A FIRST DURING KREIS ERA:

When rookie MF Sebastian Velasquez took the field for the starting whistle 3/10 in LA, he became the only first-year player to receive a starting nod on Opening Day during Jason Kreis’ five full seasons as the RSL boss ... The last RSL rookie to start a season opener was current NY MF Medhi Ballouchy, who started in RSL’s 0-3 L at Chivas in 2006 ... Velasquez acquitted himself well in his “baptism-by-fire” moment against the defending champs in LA, starting and playing 89 minutes on the left side of Kreis’ midfield diamond, his searching cross for FW Alvaro Saborio near post being knocked home for the equalizing own goal by LA DF Franklin to spark the RSL comeback ... On 3/17 v NY, Velasquez started and played 86 minutes, once again creating a goal for RSL, as it was his interplay with Paulo Junior that led to his cross for Espindola, whose saved shot rebounded to Luis Gil for the 2-0 lead against the Red Bulls ...


REAL SALT LAKE v MONTREAL IMPACT WEDNESDAY APRIL 4 2012

7:00PM MT

SCHULER STEPS UP ONCE AGAIN, TOO:

Third-year RSL DF Chris Schuler again joined Velasquez in the starting lineup at LA and vs NY, the tall, athletic and tactically-solid center-back moving once again into prime candidacy to see significant minutes when RSL’s 2010 Best XI duo and perennial MLS DF of the Year center-backs Nat Borchers and Jamison Olave cannot play … Schuler’s first-ever MLS start came in September, 2010, at Qwest Field, with RSL earning a 0-0 draw before 36,000+ … That venue was also the site of his first-ever post-season start last year … Throughout the 2011 campaign, Schuler started 20 games and appeared in 25 in all competitions, scoring two goals – both game-winners – at New England and vs Philadelphia … As a rookie in 2010, Schuler also appeared in the team’s 1-2 aet Open Cup loss at D.C. United and started RSL’s 3-2 victory in CCL play at Panamanian club Arabe Unido … RSL has understandably struggled since RSL’s Cup-winning 2009 campaign, across all competitions, without the vaunted Borchers/ Olave combo, affectionately known as “Bor-Lave” ... The team’s record, with goals and goals against average: RSL CBs 2009-12 2012 only “Bor-Lave” 41-21-27 (82 / 0.93) 1-0-0 (2, 2.00) Other combos: 13-16-6 (52 / 1.50) 2-1-0 (2, 0.67) The Borchers / Olave tandem is considered the finest in MLS, the duo posting a 41-21-27 mark in all competitions (reg season, playoff, CONCACAF) since ‘09, 82 goals allowed in 89 games ...

YET ANOTHER FINAL DURING KREIS ERA:

Since the 2008 campaign – the first full season under head coach Jason Kreis and GM Garth Lagerwey – Real Salt Lake has advanced to five so-called “finals” of either the conference, League or continental variety … They are: Year Final Result 2008 West Final vs New York L, 0-1 2009 East Final @ Chicago T, 0-0 (5-4 PKs) MLS Cup vs Los Angeles T, 1-1 (5-4 PKs) 2010 -2011 CCL Final v Monterrey T, 2-2 / L, 0-1 West Final @ Los Angeles L, 1-3 RSL has never won a “final” game in regulation, officially posting an 0-3-3 mark since each of the club’s PK shootout victories are recorded as ties … In both of the 0-1 losses (2008 v NY, 2011 v Monterrey), RSL dictated the pace and tempo of the game, out-shooting the opponent and testing the woodwork, but ultimately could not score to lift hardware before its home fans …

RSL BACK IN CONCACAF, THANKS TO LA:

With Los Angeles’ 2011 MLS Western Conference Semifinal win over NY, RSL Nation was disappointed to not be able to host the West Final … However, the Los Angeles victory did benefit RSL by allowing Jason Kreis’ club to secure passage to the 2012/13 CONCACAF Champions League tourney, by virtue of the Galaxy’s “duplicate” spots between the 2011 Supporters’ Shield berth and its trip - and eventual win - in MLS Cup ...

LUIS GIL CONTINUES TO DEVELOP:

Duplicate berths fall to the next best regular-season finisher, and with Seattle – last year’s #2 overall seed – already owning a 2012/13 spot thanks to its U.S. Open Cup title, RSL is next in line as the overall MLS #3 seed …

Gil has displayed speed, athleticism, vision and attacking prowess, belying his 18-year old age and increasing professional experience in a year during which much is expected ... Gil will assume many of the minutes vacated by Wiliams’ retirement, as well as available time due to injuries suffered by Morales and MF Will Johnson ...

This Fall’s CCL tourney will be played under a new format, as all 24 teams go directly into group play, with only the 8 winners who emerge from a 3-team, 4-game group stage advancing to the Championship round ...

Another third-year player, MF Luis Gil, has started each of the season’s first 4 games, scoring the game-winner against New York ... On Monday, Gil was named to the April 9 U.S. Men’s U-20 camp, selected by Tab Ramos ...

Despite recent disappointments in the current CCL iterations, fellow Western powers Los Angeles and Seattle will be joined this fall in the next CONCACAF tourney by RSL and Houston, which qualified as a 2011 MLS Cup participant ...

Real Salt Lake’s eye towards the future was bolstered in February with the signing of promising goalkeeper Lalo Fernandez as the club’s third-ever Homegrown Player. The addition of Fernandez marks the second dip into the Homegrown Player well by Real Salt Lake in less than a year, following on the heels of fellow RSL-Arizona Academy product Nico Muñiz (Sept. 2011) and Donny Toia (May 2011).

After playing the second-most minutes of his career in 2011, Tony Beltran again showed why he belongs in the discussion with the best outside backs in Major League Soccer. For the second time in his career the 24-year-old made more than 20 starts and helped solidify a back line that was depleted by injuries all season long – until he unfortunately suffered one of his own, limiting his minutes in the final two months of the season.

The 19-year-old Fernandez has kept busy over the last year-and-a-half, helping the RSL-Arizona Under-18 squad begin its first season in U.S. Soccer Development Academy in October 2010 and going 5-3-3 (1.00 GAA, 4 shutouts) in 11 appearances through the spring of 2011. After initially agreeing to play collegiately at the University of Wisconsin, Fernandez tacked course and tested the international waters, first spending a training stint with Mexican first division side Atlas – based in his birthplace of Guadalajara – before signing with Uruguayan power C.A. Peñarol last August.

While his staunch 1-v-1 defending continued to be rock solid, the cerebral and supremely fit Beltran has also provided more consistency when jumping into the attack, his flying runs up either flank ending with dangerous service into the area more often than during his previous two seasons of play. It can’t be long until Beltran sheds the status of one of the most underrated outside defenders in Major League Soccer, but, until then, the RSL braintrust will be more than happy to unleash the mature-beyond-his-years winger upon opponents that may underestimate the UCLA product’s considerable talent and tenacity.

The 6-foot-3, 165-pound Fernandez has been involved in the Youth National Team set-ups of both the United States and Mexico, playing for the Mexican Under-17s and training with the U.S. Under-20s last November. The El Paso, Texas, native’s goalkeeping skills run in the family, as his father, enjoyed a career as a professional netminder in Mexico.

Real Salt Lake’s search for a naturally left-footed fit on its back line may very well have come to an end with its selection of SMU product Diogo de Almeida back in January. Other outside back options were on the board towards the start of the second round, RSL was enamored with the athletic de Almeida’s size and speed, not to mention his technical ability, which was no surprise after his progression from forward to midfielder to defender during his first three years with the Mustangs. While RSL will not expect the 23-year-old to fill in minutes right away, the Brazilian’s progress throughout the year will prove vital to the planned wing-back rotation system that could prove crucial to the Utah side’s late-season success.

It seemed to take a couple of years for MLS fans and pundits to fully appreciate the depth of talent that RSL center back Jamison Olave possessed. However, now that he’s a known commodity, the RSL center back can’t seem to stop the plaudits coming his way, the ultra-athletic center back garnering spots on the MLS Best XI and MLS All-Star teams for a second consecutive season in 2011. He began the year by not only displaying his usual defensive prowess, but also securing himself an even bigger spot in RSL lore courtesy of some offense, as it was his goal at Deportivo Saprissa that would swing the CONCACAF Champions League Semifinal series the Utah side’s way. While RSL fans loved seeing “The Verb” represent the Claret-and-Cobalt against Manchester United in the All-Star Game once again, they were also left holding their collective breath after a sliding tackle sidelined him with an MCL sprain in his left knee. Success, it appeared, might come at a price. However, Olave would return after missing only a month, using his unique blend of size and closing speed – in addition to a growing sense of comfort with the ball at his feet – to keep opposing forwards on lockdown. Olave would again suffer from injury, this time a quadriceps strain, during the 2011 postseason, but the 2012 preseason sees the Colombian fit as a fiddle and ready to lead the RSL backline to more impressive and historic numbers – more specifically the ones in the “W” and “SO” columns. And, speaking of numbers, the 30-year-old Olave will hit a nice round one the next time he sees the field, as his next appearance on the fiels will mark his 100th in MLS regular season play.

However, most players aren’t like Kyle Beckerman, whose 12th season only propelled him towards bigger heights both with his club and for his country, as 2011 saw the RSL captain go from a perennial MLS All-Star and part-time U.S. Men’s National Team performer to a legitimate league MVP candidate and First XI stalwart for Jurgen Klinsmann’s USA squad. Beckerman’s ability to step up his game in the absence of main playmaker Javier Morales showed both on and off the stat sheet, his increased leadership role on the field during an adversityfilled 2011 proving just as crucial as his career-best nine assists (including six game-winning helpers) across regular season play. The 29-year-old Beckerman is hitting his peak as he enters 2012, a year in which he’ll likely leap into the league’s all-time top 20 in games played and started while also playing an integral role for the US Men’s National Team as it begins its qualifying journey for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Finals in Brazil. While an offseason adductor strain might have slowed RSL’s heart-and-soul down temporarily, Beckerman should be ready to set the tone for the Claretand-Cobalt right out of the gates in what he hopes is a lucky 13th season in MLS.

While missing four of 34 regular season games like Borchers did in 2011 wouldn’t be noteworthy for most players, for the “Ironman of MLS” it was more than a bit out of the ordinary. And even with that said, Borchers’ 30 starts last season allowed him to become the only player across Major League Soccer with at least 29 starts in each of the last four years. Death … Taxes … Borchers, indeed. The big story for Real Salt Lake as it approaches its season opener in Los Angeles might just be if the three-time RSL Defender of the Year winner will be in Jason Kreis’ First XI. The right quadriceps strain the 30-year-old backline staple suffered in last October’s postseason opener against Seattle has forced a cautious approach during this year’s preseason camp, but Borchers vows to be ready to go for rematch of the Western Conference Championship … a game the ever-steady center back would have certainly been a difference-maker in had he been able to give it a go.

Seemingly overshadowed by other forwards every since he joined Real Salt Lake five years ago, the attention turned Fabian Espíndola’s way in 2011 seemed to increase. Then again, everything involving Espíndola seemed to be ratcheted up a notch last season – his focus, an already-high energy-level and even his notoriety across the league all received noticeable bumps. However, the most important thing the fiery Argentine increased last year was his production, as Espíndola knocked home a career-best 10 goals in league play and added a goal and two assists during RSL’s CONCACAF Champions League run that allowed to Utahns to continue their historic path to the tourney’s finals.

Will Johnson was a busy guy in 2011, but when you’re depended upon to be a stalwart for both your club and country, well, that just goes with the territory. But with Johnson possessing one of – if not the best – motors in all of Major League Soccer, the industrious 25-year-old not only has the stamina to handle the added workload, but the pride and character to relish it. He also has the history to prove he can handle the added miles as well, playing at least 2,000 minutes and in at least 25 regular season contests for the Claretand-Cobalt in each of his first three full seasons … and that’s not counting the additional wear-and-tear (and pressure) endured during Cup competitions.

It’s easy to forget that Espíndola was a part of the massive rebuilding process that Jason Kreis began midway through 2007; and yet, at the same time, it seems hard to think about RSL without the passion and grit of the 26-year-old forward. Re-signing Espíndola was priority #1 for Real Salt Lake this past offseason, and when two sides were able to agree to a four-year pact you could almost hear an audible sigh of relief from Claret-and-Cobalt fans near and far. With his regular up-top running mate, Álvaro Saborío, a question mark for the start of the campaign, the scoring burden will likely fall to Espíndola – then again, that’s something the confident striker will likely pick up as well.

With another round of World Cup qualifying in store for his Canadian National Team and another run in the CONCACAF Champions League on the docket for Real Salt Lake, it’s going to be another chock full calendar in 2012 for Johnson, who will again be depended upon to man the left side of RSL’s midfield diamond. While a procedure to correct a sports hernia issue might slow Johnson down for the first few weeks of the season, the RSL faithful can rest assured his odometer will start spinning furiously sooner rather than later.

From the get-go, the Argentine midfield maestro was pulling the strings for a Real Salt Lake side on the cusp of international glory, his infectious attitude, quiet leadership and abundant skill helping a pioneering club earn plaudits from every corner of America’s soccer landscape. So while RSL’s disappointment at the end of its CONCACAF Champions League run in late April was a tough blow for the squad, it’s quite telling that the result’s effect on the team’s season paled in comparison to the loss of Morales to an ankle injury just 10 days after the stinging defeat. It is also telling that, during a stretch of two weeks when clumsy challenges like the one Morales suffered from felled some of MLS’ other brightest attacking talents, RSL’s playmaker vowed to come back before season’s end. Anyone who saw the incident must have thought Morales’ thoughts were wishful thinking at best, but they also weren’t witness to the hard work he put in day after day. While the air was sucked out of the building that day, Morales knew it wasn’t sucked out of the season, and he wanted to make sure he could help the squad finish the challenge it had laid down at the start of the year – add hardware to the trophy case.

EMILIANO BONFIGLI

HEIGHT: 5-10 WEIGHT: 150 DOB: 4/15/88 HOMETOWN: Bahia Blanca, Argentina ACQUIRED: 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft PRONOUNCIATION: bone-FIGG-lee LAST GAME: 3/27/12 - start/90’ in 0-1 L @ CHI (reserves)

Five years ago, Real Salt Lake brought a young Argentinean striker into its side by the name of Fabian Espíndola … and now the Utah side is hoping it has unearthed a similar talent in his countryman, Emiliano Bonfigli. The lanky striker proved worth taking a flyer on in the MLS Supplemental Draft, the 23-year-old showing more than enough finishing prowess during RSL’s opening preseason camp to earn a spot on the team’s forward depth chart. With a congested schedule ahead, expect Bonfigli to be firmly in the mix for the “spot starter” role up top alongside fellow “young guns” Paulo Jr. and Cody Arnoux.

While that goal wouldn’t come to fruition, the comeback of Morales inspired not only his teammates, but the RSL faithful as well, who could not get enough updates on the status of “Javi” and when – not if – he would return to the field. While Morales was never back to 100% during the final six weeks of the season, he showed plenty enough to make it clear that he was closer than anyone, save himself, might have thought. But, perhaps more than anything, his comeback allowed everyone the opportunity to remember a different image of #11 at Rio Tinto Stadium in 2011 – the thunderous standing ovation he received upon entering the Sept. 28 match against Chicago in front of the largest crowd in the stadium’s history. 20,762 fans, all there to pay tribute to the heart-and-soul of RSL, to see the maestro pick up his baton once again. The start of the 2012 campaign sees Morales continuing to overcome injury, an offseason procedure to clean out bone spurs in his left foot and a right quad strain suffered during the preseason limiting him during the squad’s preparations for the upcoming season. But if 2011 proved anything, it’s that Morales will be able to overcome any challenge thrown at him … and likely sooner than anyone could imagine.

When it came to taking advantage of an opportunity in 2011, nobody did it better than midfielder Yordany Alvarez, who parlayed his USL PRO League MVP performance for Orlando City S.C. into a quasi-starting gig last September shortly after joining Real Salt Lake on loan at the roster freeze deadline. The one-time Cuban international provided quality cover for Kyle Beckerman, whose suspensions and U.S. MNT call-ups across the last quarter of the season forced Alvarez onto the field for five contests. The 26-year-old performed well enough during the impromptu “trial by fire” that RSL sought to secure his services on a more permanent basis, and the Utah side did just that in February by coming to buyout terms with Orlando and locking up the holding midfielder via a new three-year deal. With Beckerman again slated to pull double-duty for club and country during much of 2012, fans can expect to see Alvarez back in the Starting XI mix on many more occasions.

FORWARD

As a forward there’s always pressure to perform, and in 2011 the pressure seemed to be both a blessing and a curse for Álvaro Saborío, who began the year with a new contract that heaped on the added weight of becoming Real Salt Lake’s first-ever “Designated Player” (though the title was more a technicality thanks to the transfer fees involved in obtaining his full rights). The roller-coaster season saw Saborío bag goals in bunches and in some critical moments, but also included some droughts and mountains of adversity on the national team front for his native Costa Rica. A part of that ebb-and-flow of output was due to injury, as Saborío rushed back from offseason knee surgery quickly in order to help keep his hot hand in the CONCACAF Champions League going from the prior fall. While he indeed helped carry the squad to the tournament’s finals, his production and availability would suffer in the months to follow, only to ratchet back up during a torrid stretch in mid-summer. When the dust settled, “Sabo” had collected 16 goals across 32 games in all competitions, keeping pace with the 18 tallies in 36 contests the season prior. The wear-and-tear resulted in another surgery on his right knee immediately after the season, making his return to the line-up at the start of 2012 a question mark. However, the “Tico Terror” won’t be sidelined for long, as he has progressed strongly during the club’s preseason camps and is expected to be on the field and creating havoc for the opposition by April at the very latest.

Real Salt Lake broke new ground last fall when it agreed to terms with Nico Muñiz, making the midfielder the first RSL-Arizona Academy member to jump straight to the “big club” from Casa Grande. While technically unable to perform for the MLS outfit until the new year, the now 19-year-old Muniz joined the first team in Utah upon the announcement in September, giving him a leg up on preparations for his first professional campaign with what amounted to a seven week “sneak peek.” Muñiz started three of his six appearances (346 min.) as a regular call-up for the RSL Reserves in 2011, and the Albuquerque native should expect to see his development continue largely through opportunities in MLS Reserve League fixtures during the 2012 campaign.

The outside back position in RSL’s 4-4-2 system is perhaps one of the most challenging spots in Major League Soccer – to call them “defenders” is simply not doing them justice. The role requires players to have the physicality to defend one-on-one, the speed and stamina to make run after run up and down the flank to provide width in attack and the technical acumen to make things happen with the ball, be it by providing crosses into the area or quick combinations with the midfield. You have to be smart, disciplined and in ridiculously good shape … in other words, you almost have to be Chris Wingert. The 29-year-old Wingert will enter the 2012 season as RSL’s longest-tenured field player, beating out his former ex-Colorado teammate Kyle Beckerman for the honor by three days courtesy of their back-to-back trades in mid-July 2007. That longevity has not only shot him up the RSL all-time rankings in numerous categories, but it’s also allowed him to master the abilities necessary to thrive on the island that can sometimes be the outside back position in Jason Kreis’ preferred line-up. To protect against the wear-and-tear that saw nagging injuries effect the three-man rotation of Wingert, Tony Beltran and the departed Robbie Russell last season, the Claret-and-Cobalt will hope Wingert can mentor whichever two players emerge in the back-up battle out wide during preseason to increase the rotation to four by midseason. If there’s anyone up for the task of mentoring it would be Wingert, a locker room leader who also has the NSCAA Scholar-Athlete of the Year honor from his Senior season at St. John’s in his back pocket.

LAST MLS SHUTOUT: 3/17/12 v NY - 2 games ago LAST GAME: 3/31/12 - start/90’/6 saves in 3-2 W @ POR Nick Rimando would have been hard-pressed to duplicate the record-setting 2010 campaign he presided over between the posts for Real Salt Lake, but his 2011 season was not all that far behind. Once again finishing at or near the top of Major League Soccer in goals against average, shutouts and wins, Rimando’s 12th MLS season gave credence to the theory that the shelf life of the American goalkeeper is almost limitless … a good sign now that the 32-year-old Rimando is the elder statesman of the Claret-and-Cobalt after the offseason retirement of Andy Williams. That being said, it takes more than age to climb towards the top of MLS’ record books, which is exactly what Rimando has done by ranking second in all-time shutouts (87) and third in wins (121), games played in goal (288), starts in goal (also 288) and minutes in goal (26,073). Much like teammate Kyle Beckerman, Rimando’s international career has also picked up steam once again, as the Southern California native has been a regular call-up under the new regime of Jurgen Klinsmann since his appointment as USMNT’s sideline boss last summer. If Rimando can continue to produce sparkling performances like the first half he turned in against Panama in January, it will be a busy year of shuffling between club and country for the RSL fanbase’s favorite “homeboy.”

Some things are just meant to be, and that seemed to be the general consensus when highly-touted midfielder Enzo Martinez fell right into the lap of Real Salt Lake late in the first round of January’s MLS SuperDraft in Kansas City. Why the key cog for North Carolina’s College Cup-winning side slid to the 17th overall pick will never be known, but what is for certain is that the motivated midfielder’s savvy on the ball, mature decision-making and industrious workrate will make the native Uruguayan a perfect fit in the diamond midfield RSL has perfected under Jason Kreis. While the RSL Technical Staff gushed about the Generation adidas product’s production and ability, it was even more impressed with his maturity off the field, forcing many of the pundits who questioned where the 21-year-old might fit on the field for many teams to also admit that the Claret-and-Cobalt might just have come away with the steal of draft day.

HEIGHT: 5-7 WEIGHT: 150 DOB: 7/1/83 HOMETOWN: New Lenox, IL ACQUIRED: Waivers from SJ Earthquakes, 3/--/09 LAST SEASON: Played 33 games (25 starts) in all competitions, scoring playoff-series-clinching goal vs SEA in West Semis LAST MLS GOAL: 10/16/10 v. DAL (59’) - 29 games ago LAST MLS ASSIST: 07/31/10 v. DC (13’) - 38 games ago LAST GAME: 3/31/12 - start/90’ in 3-2 W @ POR

With Williams retiring during the offseason, the versatile Grabavoy will be depended upon even more by Head Coach Jason Kreis to set the tone on the field and in the locker room as one of the team’s core members. The good news for Kreis and fans of RSL is that, thanks to a new offseason contract, the 28-year-old midfielder will put his masterful on-theball ability, vision and tenacity on display at Rio Tinto Stadium for at least the next three seasons.

During his third season in Claret-and-Cobalt in 2011, Ned Grabavoy continued to find more minutes in the platoon system with Andy Williams on the right side of Real Salt Lake’s diamond midfield, but, due to injuries and national team call-ups, the veteran also found himself at other spots in the diamond through necessity. Despite suffering from a nagging hamstring injury of his own late in the campaign, the gritty Grabavoy was able to register the second most appearances, starts and minutes of his eight seasons in Major League Soccer.

MIDFIELDER

Real Salt Lake’s philosophy for the development of Luis Gil had always been “slow and steady,” but then Javier Morales’ devastating ankle injury and a slew of national team callups hit in the spring, and the acceleration of Gil’s learning curve soon followed. RSL Head Coach Jason Kreis originally took a committee approach to replacing Morales as the summer progressed, but the rotation would eventually include a heavy dose of the then-17-year-old Gil, who indeed proved capable of rising to the challenge while also doing plenty of “on-thejob” training. While inconsistent, as most teenagers growing up in a professional league tend to be, Gil more often than not showed glimpses as to why he was coveted by some of the world’s top sides prior to joining the Claret-and-Cobalt back in 2010. The physicality of the opposition might not be as much of a problem in 2012, as Gil entered RSL’s preseason camp noticeably bigger and more confident, both on the ball and within the squad. With regular starters Morales and Will Johnson both dealing with injuries heading into the season, Gil may very well find himself a member of the starting XI when March rolls around

Jonny Steele has squeezed a career’s worth of stops into his first eight professional seasons, but the preseason pact he signed with Real Salt Lake might just allow the 26-year-old midfielder to stop and settle down for awhile … besides, there’s precedence for this sort of thing with the Utah side (see Williams, Andy). After years of hopping between second divisions clubs and indoor teams, the native of Northern Ireland has finally earned the opportunity to display his talents on the North American continent’s top stage, eight years after his stateside journey began with a trial for FC Dallas. While Steele’s presence will ratchet up the amount of bite in the RSL midfield, thinking of him as simply a “hardman” would be a mistake, as the former Wolverhampton performer didn’t win the 2008 USL-1 MVP award for the Puerto Rico Islanders on hard tackles alone.

As explosive as the fall 2010 debut of Paulo Jr. onto the Real Salt Lake scene was, it appeared that the Brazilian’s 2011 was equally as disappointing … but one look at the limited sample size of stats might just prove otherwise. While the swashbuckling striker missed exactly half of the season due to lingering hamstring and hip flexor injuries over the summer, when he was on the field he was able to produce, notching a pair of goals and five assists in what amounted to just under 600 minutes across MLS and CONCACAF play. The diminutive forward’s season got off to a sparkling start, as he recorded a goal, an assist or both during his first four overall appearances. However, the injury bug would strike soon afterwards, derailing a promising start and limiting him to substitute and spot-start duty across the last three months of the season. Despite the health concerns, Real Salt Lake recognized Paulo Jr.’s potential this past offseason and acquired the 23-year-old’s player rights from the Ft. Lauderdale Strikers in February. The Utah side hopes a new three-year contract will provide the stability and confidence the still-developing striker needs in order to perform, which would result in a dangerous complement to first-choice forwards Fabian Espíndola and Álvaro Saborío.

HEIGHT: 6-3 WEIGHT: 190 DOB: 11/3/83 HOMETOWN: Valencia, CA ACQUIRED: 2007 MLS SuperDraft LAST SEASON: Played 3 games (all starts) in goal for RSL, registering 2 wins, 2 shutouts and a 0.67 GAA LAST MLS WIN: 4/9/11 @ NE (1 career win) LAST MLS SHUTOUT: 4/9/11 @ NE – 2nd career clean sheet LAST GAME: 3/27/12 - start/90’ in 0-1 L @ CHI (reserves) With the retirement of Andy Williams this past offseason, goalkeeper Kyle Reynish becomes the recipient of the “current longest tenured RSL player” title, as the netminder drafted on Jan. 18, 2007 will begin his sixth full season with the squad in 2012. As the back-up to the 2nd-longest tenured player, Nick Rimando, the UC-Santa Barbara native hasn’t had many occasions to show his stuff in recent seasons, but when he was able to in 2011 he would deliver, notching two shutout wins in his three first-team appearances. The 27-year-old ‘keeper will not only continue to be perhaps the league’s most underrated understudy, but will also be looked at to help mentor young Lalo Fernandez, RSL’s latest Homegrown addition to the roster.

If you were not aware of Sebastian Velasquez when Real Salt Lake selected him towards the end of the 2012 MLS SuperDraft, well, you weren’t alone … the plucky playmaker was the first Junior College player to be selected on draft day since Kansas City took another member of the RSL family, Yura Movsisyan, six years earlier. The Wasatch Front is a long way from Spartanburg Methodist College in South Carolina, but when word from collegiate scouting contacts about the “diamond-in-the-Upstate” came across RSL’s attention, due diligence by assistant coach Miles Joseph paid off for the now-21-year-old midfielder via an invite to the club’s December combine in Arizona. Velasquez impressed enough there to earn the nod to the next level, where he will be allowed plenty of time to learn how pull the strings on the top of RSL’s midfield diamond behind Javier Morales and Luis Gil.

The 2012 season can almost be considered a fresh start for forward Cody Arnoux, who was injured upon joining Real Salt Lake last February and couldn’t return to the field from injuries until the season was mostly through. However, with a year of seasoning in RSL’s system under his belt, a completely clean bill of health and plenty of work ethic in tow, the former Wake Forest standout will be ready to make up for lost time and contribute major minutes off the bench during the Claret-and-Cobalt’s busy campaign.

MIDFIELDER

DEFENDER

What a difference a year made for defender Chris Schuler. After showing a glimpse of promise that was cut short due to injury in 2010, the Chicagoland native returned to the field with a vengeance in 2011, playing in 27 matches across all competitions as injuries and suspensions wrecked havoc at times on the RSL backline. Five months after breaking his foot just the day after RSL clinched a spot in the CONCACAF Champions League knockout phase, it was perhaps fate that Schuler would be called upon to serve in place of the suspended Nat Borchers right off the bat against Columbus in the CCL Quarterfinals. The 24-year-old would pass that test with flying colors, and, as the RSL Technical Staff began to grow more and more comfortable with him, Schuler would also begin to draw assignments at outside back as situations dictated. While some may think it unfortunate to sit behind one of the best center back tandems in league history on the depth chart, it is clear during the 2012 preseason that Schuler has been soaking up knowledge from Borchers and Jamison Olave over the course of his first two pro seasons. Learning the tricks of the trade from those pillars both technically and leadership-wise will certainly pay off with even better performances when called upon down the road, which may occur just as much this season with another congested schedule on the docket for the Claret-and-Cobalt.

The path to the ranks of Major League Soccer for Leone Cruz was not a common one, but, in the end, the talented center back appears to have found a willing dance partner in Real Salt Lake the second time around. After failing to stick around with Seattle Sounders FC after being drafted by the Cascadia outfit in 2011, Cruz chose to finish up his studies at Southern Methodist University and stay soccer-sharp by playing in matches in the newly-resurrected Reserve League. Those stints included a pair of games in Claret-and-Cobalt last summer, when RSL reaffirmed its pre-draft assessments of Cruz’s skills and kept the Texas native on its radar through January, when it swung a deal with Seattle during the Supplemental Draft to bring the defender on board. After winning a spot on the roster during preseason, Cruz will be expected to form a solid bond with fellow reservist Chris Schuler – with the added benefit of being able to learn from two of the league’s best “middle men” in Jamison Olave and Nat Borchers.

ALL-TIME RECORD: 60-51-43 (MLS); 75-65-52 (all comps) COLLEGE: Duke ‘94 HOMETOWN: Omaha, NE APPOINTED: May 3, 2007 PRONOUNCIATION: KRYSE LAST SEASON: 15-11-8 (MLS); CCL Finalist; lost in Open Cup Qtrs AS A PLAYER: scored 108 career goals w/ Dallas (1996-2004) & RSL (2005-07)

Real Salt Lake Head Coach Jason Kreis traded in his record-setting boots and captain’s armband on May 3, 2007 to become the organization’s second head coach, overhauling a previously moribund locker room to become just two seasons later the youngest Cupwinning coach in MLS history, guiding RSL to the title in 2009. Under his watch, RSL has also advanced to three of the last four Conference Finals, become the first American side to win a CONCACAF Champions League group and the first U.S. team to advance to the CCL Finals. With back-to-back 15-win MLS seasons in 2010 and 2011, Kreis’ teams have earned points in two out of every three matches they play, as the intense, demanding leader now owns an all-time 75-65-52 mark as a head coach, breaking down as follows: MLS regular-season (60-51-43), CONCACAF Champions League (6-3-3), MLS Cup Playoff (4-4-4), Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup (2-5-1) and international friendlies (3-2-1).

As proof the RSL Technical Staff is committed to leaving no stone unturned in its search for talent, enter Terukazu Tanaka, an outside back prospect GM Garth Lagerwey spotted during a combine in Tokyo shortly after the end of the 2011 season. The 26-year-old right-sided defender brings five years of professional experience in the Japanese first and second divisions with him across the Pacific, a pedigree he hopes will earn him not only a spot on the RSL roster, but a regular slot in the outside back rotation alongside returning vets Chris Wingert and Tony Beltran.

At the time of his hire, Mr. Kreis became the youngest active head coach in MLS at 34 years and 127 days of age. Kreis works closely with former Blue Devil and Dallas Burn teammate and current RSL General Manager Garth Lagerwey regarding player acquisitions, scouting, the MLS Draft and all player personnel-related matters. The Kreis-Lagerwey partnership has resulted in the implementation of a culture where players, staff and fans work as one for the RSL shield, epitomizing a “Team is the Star” attitude. Kreis, Lagerwey and the team’s coaching staff – Jeff Cassar, Miles Joseph and C.J. Brown – compose the lone technical staff among MLS’ 18 teams comprised entirely of ex-MLS players. This distinction means that the RSL braintrust now boasts cumulative MLS experience of 74,811 total minutes, covering 923 games and including 128 goals and 22 shutouts (the equivalent of nearly 30 complete seasons of service). The RSL staff has the unparalleled ability to tap into personal experience as it guides, assists and develops RSL players.
