REAL SALT LAKE vs CHICAGO FIRE RIO TINTO STADIUM, Sandy, Utah 7 p.m. MT (My50 Chi.)

September 28, 2011 (WEEK 29; MLS Game 276)

An important match for both clubs for different reasons comes Wednesday when Real Salt Lake play host to the Chicago Fire at Rio Tinto Stadium. Real have secured their spot in the MLS Cup Playoffs, but now need a victory to keep alive their Supporters’ Shield hopes after a 4-1 loss at D.C. United last weekend. The Fire are still battling to finish in the top 10 overall with four wins in their last five, last a 3-2 win against New England at home last Sunday. REFEREE: Baldomero Toledo. SAR (bench): Fabio Tovar; JAR (opposite): Ian Anderson; 4th: Juan Guzman MLS Career: 120 games; FC/gm: 24.9; Y/gm: 3.6; R: 46; pens: 47 INJURY REPORT: REAL SALT LAKE – OUT: DF Tony Beltran (L adductor strain); MF Nelson González (R foot fracture); GK Kyle Reynish (R ankle bone spur); QUESTIONABLE: MF Javier Morales (L ankle fracture dislocation); PROBABLE: DF Robbie Russell (L back spasms); FW Álvaro Saborío (R knee effusion); DF Chris Wingert (L wrist fracture) … CHICAGO FIRE – OUT: MF Gabriel Ferrari (L knee ACL reconstruction); DF Steven Kinney (lower abdominal strain) INTERNATIONAL ABSENCES: none SUSPENDED: none WARNINGS: SUSPENDED NEXT YELLOW CARD: CHI: Diego Chaves, Cory Gibbs, Dominic Oduro SUSPENDED AFTER TWO YELLOW CARDS: RSL: Jean Alexandre, Fabian Espindola, Robbie Russell, Collen Warner, Chris Wingert … CHI: Yamith Cuesta, Dan Gargan, Baggio Husidic, Josep Mikulic, Cristian Nazarit, Daniel Paladini, Logan Pause HEAD-TO-HEAD ALL-TIME (13 meetings): Real 3 wins, 9 goals … Fire 5 wins, 14 goals … Ties 5 AT SALT LAKE (6 meetings): Real 2 wins, 6 goals … Fire 2 wins, 8 goals … Ties 2  In their first meeting this season, the teams played to a scoreless draw, June 22 at Toyota Park.  It extended Real’s unbeaten streak against Chicago to five games in all competitions.  The win last year at Toyota Park was the first ever for RSL. They did win on penalties in the 2009 Eastern Conference Championship, after the game officially ended in a draw.  Coaches record: Jason Kreis v CHI: P9 W2 L2 D5 … Frank Klopas vs. RSL: P1 W0 L0 D1 LAST MEETING (MLS) 6/22: CHI 0, RSL 0  RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando made four saves on the evening, most of the tougher chances coming after the halftime break.  Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson was called upon to make two saves.  CHICAGO FIRE (4-4-2): Sean Johnson - Jalil Anibaba, Cory Gibbs, Yamith Cuesta, Gonzalo Segares Dominic Oduro, Daniel Paladini, Baggio Husidic (Corben Bone 80), Patrick Nyarko - Diego Chaves (Gabriel Ferrari 86), Orr Barouch (Marco Pappa 70).  REAL SALT LAKE (4-3-1-2): Nick Rimando - Robbie Russell, Jamison Olave, Nat Borchers, Tony Beltran Ned Grabavoy, Kyle Beckerman, Will Johnson - Collen Warner (Nelson Gonzalez 84) - Artur Aghasyan (Andy Williams 69), Fabian Espindola (Luis Gil 7). REAL SALT LAKE Real Salt Lake saw their five-game winning streak come to a crashing halt, falling to a 4-1 loss to D.C. United on Saturday evening at RFK Stadium. RSL is in third place in the Western Conference, with 51 points from 29 matches. LAST MATCH  United took the lead after just 13 minutes. Dwayne De Rosario picked out a streaking Andy Najar with a diagonal ball that split the RSL back line, and Najar outraced a defender before hammering an angled shot home past goalkeeper Nick Rimando.  Najar returned the favor for De Rosario nine minutes later, looping a long, curling cross into the area that De Rosario headed past Rimando.  Five minutes later, De Rosario had his second and D.C.'s third. A bouncing ball was deflected by Josh Wolff into De Rosario’s path, and he curled a shot into the upper corner from outside the penalty area.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


De Rosario completed his hat trick just four minutes later. From a free kick some 35 yards out on the right, he caught Rimando cheating towards his far post and curled his effort inside the upper corner of the near post.  Alvaro Saborio scored a late consolation goal for Real, firing home from close range after he was left completely alone to run onto a pass from Paulo Junior.  RSL coach Jason Kreis made eight changes to the side that defeated the New York Red Bulls 3-1 at Red Bull Arena. Only goalkeeper Nick Rimando, center back Nat Borchers and midfielder Collen Warner maintained their places.  REAL SALT LAKE (4-1-3-2): Nick Rimando - Chris Wingert, Rauwshan McKenzie, Nat Borchers, Blake Wagner (Will Johnson 62) - Ned Grabavoy, Kyle Beckerman, Arturo Alvarez (Luis Gil 62) - Collen Warner Jean Alexandre (Alvaro Saborio 75), Paulo Araujo Jr. TEAM NEWS  Real Salt Lake saw their winning streak come to an end after five games – the longest in MLS this season.  Earlier in the season, for a visit to New England in the midst of RSL’s run to the CONCACAF Champions League final, Kreis made nine changes to his starting lineup. Real won that game 2-0.  “I would argue that this is the same team that beat Cruz Azul last year at home and this is basically the same group that did that with a few changes,” said defender Nat Borchers. “We expect a lot from our guys who come in off the bench, so we definitely need to work on a few things to get better.”  Blake Wagner made his Real Salt Lake debut, coming in at right back. Chris Wingert came in at the other fullback spot, his first appearance since Aug. 13, missing six matches with a broken wrist.  Real Salt Lake also saw their three-game road winning streak put to an end. The club has never won four in a row away from home.  “I think we won five games in a row and I think it’s safe to say we weren’t five-games-in-a-row-good. We didn’t play that well through that stretch,” said Borchers. “ … There are some positives though. We came into the locker room and we said, ‘look, we’re going win this second half and that’s our goal.’ We responded well in that we did that.”  For the first time since his ankle injury May 7, Javier Morales was a part of the 18-man gameday roster. But he remained an unused substitute.  “I felt like the game was lost and that there was probably nothing positive that could come out of playing [Javier Morales] out there. I felt like it was just too big of a risk,” Kreis said. “Also, frankly I kind of wanted his first minutes to be at home, so I would have used him tonight in very few circumstances and obviously it wasn’t going to happen so we’ll look for Wednesday.” CHICAGO FIRE The Chicago Fire kept their late-season push alive, winning again for a second consecutive game, this time a 3-2 win over the New England Revolution on Sunday afternoon at Toyota Park. The Fire have 33 points from 29 matches on the year, sitting in seventh place in the Eastern Conference. LAST MATCH  Chicago took the lead after nine minutes. Patrick Nyarko was taken out by New England 'keeper Matt Reis while chasing down midfielder Logan Pause’s through ball in the right side of the area, and Sebastian Grazzini buried the resulting penalty into the lower right corner.  Dominic Oduro made it 2-0 four minutes later, running unmarked onto a Grazzini through ball at the top of the box before sidestepping Reis and tapping home. Then in the 30th minute, Oduro hit a hopeful through ball that Reis should have easily cleared, instead seeing Nyarko strip it off his foot and dribble unmolested into the goal.  The Revolution made it interesting with two goals in stoppage time from Ryan Guy. First, on the stroke of full time, Sean Johnson spilled a cross after colliding with the Revolution's Milton Caraglio, and Guy looped the ball into the goal. Then two minutes later, Guy slotted home a pass from substitute midfielder Diego Fagundez from the heart of the box.  Fire interim head coach Frank Klopas made one change to the team that came back for a 3-2 victory against Chivas USA at Toyota Park. Dan Gargan came back from suspension, for the suspended Cory Gibbs.  CHICAGO FIRE (4-1-3-2): Sean Johnson - Dan Gargan, Josip Mikulic, Jalil Anibaba, Gonzalo Segares - Pavel Pardo - Logan Pause, Sebastian Grazzini (Baggio Husidic 25), Marco Pappa - Patrick Nyarko (Diego Chaves 66), Dominic Oduro (Orr Barouch 77). TEAM NEWS  The Fire have won four of their last five games, winning a second in a row in a 3-2 victory against New England on Sunday. Chicago won just twice in their first 24 league games this season.  “In the second half, being up 3-0 and tough stretch ahead of us, I had the opportunity to give some guys a break and get everyone involved in the game,” said Klopas. “I think a good lesson for us to learn in a game like this is that a game is never over until it’s over.”  Dominic Oduro continued his torrid spell with a goal against New England. Now in a four-way tie for fourth in the MLS Golden Boot Standings with 11 goals, Oduro has scored six goals in the last eight games.

Sebastian Grazzini contributed his fourth goal since coming to the Fire, and then his fourth assist – his second in as many games. But he was forced from the field well before halftime with a hamstring injury. “Sometimes when you bring players in midseason like that, they’ve stopped their season and haven’t gone through a proper preseason, they just go right into it,” Klopas said. “We always have to be aware and be careful with the amount of training and games, but he’s a guy who wants to play and make a difference, which he did today. It’s just very unfortunate because he’s a very important player to the team.” Patrick Nyarko finally broke through and scored his first goal of 2011, to go with seven assists. A year ago he had one goal and 10 assists. “I was very happy for Patrick because I told him many times that he needs to be a little more selfish, especially now that he’s playing up top and is getting more opportunities,” Klopas said. “He’s always looking to make that pass, but sometimes he needs to be selfish and finish plays by himself. I was very happy for him because when he gets assists, and today a goal, it helps his confidence. He’s a guy who with or without the ball helps the team.” Sean Johnson matched his season-high with six saves, facing a season-high eight shots in the New England match. “It was just one of those games. Sometimes there are games where you don’t have much to do and other games where you keep pretty busy and I do my best keep the team in it,” Johnson said. “ … Now we just need to get back to practice and work on a few things – closing out games is important, in the last few games we’ve given up some second half goals and that’s something we need to correct.”

HOME RESPITE FOR RSL REBOUND: While RSL

clinched an MLS Cup Playoff berth for the fourth consecutive season with last week’s impressive win at New York, it returns home for a mid-week affair vs Chicago seeking to rebound from a disappointing 1-4 loss at D.C. United Saturday … In an effort to balance the minutes for RSL’s lineup in the midst of 6 games in 19 days from Sept. 17 to Oct. 6, RSL boss Jason Kreis elected to make 7 changes to the lineup from Wednesday to Saturday, and saw his side torched by a world-class performance from D.C. attacker Dwayne DeRosario, who tallied 3 goals and an assist prior to the th game’s 40 minute … The hat trick was the fifth allowed by RSL in its 225-game MLS / CCL history … Wednesday’s match at Rio Tinto Stadium kicks off at 7:00 p.m. MT, with the match televised live via the MLS MatchDay Live or Direct Kick subscription packages … Fans can also follow over the air on RSL’s official radio partners, ESPN 700 Sports and ESPN Deportes 1600 AM / Juan 106.1 FM …

FIVE-GAME WIN STREAK SNAPPED AT D.C.: While the 2-3-0 August record and the disappointment of home losses to SEA & CLB once cast a pall over RSL’s summer, RSL knew it needed a hot September to enter the Supporters Shield conversation … Despite capturing maximum points (15) over the five games from Aug. 28 – Sept. 24, RSL gained minimal ground on Los Angeles … However, Jason Kreis’ side has leapfrogged Western rivals Dallas and Colorado to vault into contention for the #2 / #3 seeds in the West, along with Seattle … Despite a year filled with the disappointment of the CONCACAF Champions League hangover, the loss of MF Javier Morales for nearly five months and a rapidly-spinning lineup carousel due to suspension, injury and national team duty, Real Salt Lake’s total of 51 points through 29 games is only four points shy of last year’s club-record pace, yet 14 points ahead of where the team was at this point in 2009, when it won MLS Cup … Obviously, RSL teams will play 34 reg. season games this season … Totals after 29 and 30 games in the Kreis era: YEAR 2011 2010 2009 2008

REAL SALT LAKE v CHICAGO FIRE – WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 28, 2011 CLOSING THE DOOR ON D.C. SETBACK: Real Salt Lake also saw a 3-goal loss late in its MLS Cup 2009winning season, dropping an 0-3 decision at Dallas almost two years ago to the day as Saturday’s 1-4 loss in D.C. … RSL went on to win six of its final seven games that year, including the extra time, shootout win over the Galaxy in Seattle to raise the Cup … A list of all the 3-goal losses or 4+ goals allowed games in RSL history below … Jason Kreis (68-45-49): DATE OPP.

MASSIVE LINEUP CHANGES AT D.C.: Real Citing the schedule congestion caused by 6 games in 19 days and hoping to have a fresh side leading into the Oct. 1 match at league-leading Los Angeles, RSL made seven changes to the starting XI that defeated NY last Wednesday, 3-1 … Along with the return of RSL Captain Kyle Beckerman from a yellow-card accumulation suspension to the lineup, Saturday marked the return from injury from veteran back Chris Wingert, who had been out since August 13 in Toronto due to a broken right wrist … DF Blake Wagner – signed on August 15 in part due to the Wingert injury – made his first-ever RSL start at D.C., while center-back Rauwshan McKenzie saw action alongside Nat Borchers for the first time since April 9 at NE, when Jason also rested several starters following the completion of the CCL Semifinal series at Saprissa …

In the midfield, Ned Grabavoy started for the first time since suffering a hamstring strain on July 30 v Columbus, while Arturo Alvarez started for the first time since Aug. 20 at Houston and only the third time all year at midfield, as the Salvadoran international had made four RSL starts at forward, his last on May 22 … At attacking midfield, second-year player Collen Warner started for the second consecutive match after playing brilliantly in Wednesday’s 3-1 win at New York, while Jean Alexandre and Paulo Junior started up top together for the very first time, Alexandre’s first start since July 30 and Paulo Junior’s first start since April 9 … That duo snapped a 25-game MLS streak where either of RSL’s two leading scorers – FW Alvaro Saborio or FW Fabian Espindola – started for Coach Kreis … Regular RSL starters Jamison Olave, Robbie Russell and Andy Williams did not dress for the match, joined in street clothes by newcomer Yordany Alvarez, who had filled in so admirably for Beckerman at New York …

HISTORIC WIN AT NEW YORK: Real Salt Lake’s 3-1 victory last Wednesday allowed RSL to equal its all-time high for wins in a season (15), matching its 2010 total; it also gave RSL a new standard for road wins (5) in a season, surpassing the four away victories claimed in 2010 and 2006 … The three goals in the first 21 minutes marked the fastest start to a 3-0 lead, surpassing the trio of first-half goals scored in 30 minutes on July 23, 2005 (v DAL) and in 41 minutes on March 26, 2011 (v LA) … Wednesday marked the first time EVER that RSL scored three goals in a half on the road … For 48 minutes on Wednesday, prior to the 69’ consolation score by the Red Bulls Joel Lindpere, RSL saw its all-time club goal differential stand at EVEN … An amazing accomplishment, considering the seven-year old club was -39 its first two seasons and -45 prior to the Jason Kreis coaching era … In 213 all-time MLS matches, RSL has now scored 276 goals, while allowing 280 …

ROAD WARRIORS STUMBLE IN CAPITAL: The loss at D.C. Saturday snapped Real Salt Lake’s threegame road win streak from Aug. 27-Sept. 21, matching the franchise high set back in August, 2006 … Once the worst road team in the history of MLS, Real Salt Lake steps on the road when competition is fiercest, winning critical postseason matches in 2009 on the road and performing well away from home in hostile CONCACAF Champions League territory, earning away results in 21 of its last 33 road games dating back to May, 2010 in all competitions … This recent advent of road success places the squad’s all-time MLS regular season road mark at 19-61-26 (.298; 99 GF / 177 GA) following th the 106 road contest in League play last week at D.C. … Since Kreis took over, RSL’s MLS road mark is 15-37-21, with the new team mark of five road wins this year exceeding the four achieved in 2010, and more than doubling the two earned in each of the 2007-09 seasons … 14 games down (5-6-3, 18 pts), three games to go in 2011 … Starting back on Aug. 13 at Toronto, and factoring in the new Oct. 6 date north of the border, the Claret-andCobalt play 9 of its final 13 regular season contests – and 5 of the last 7 – away from the friendly confines of Rio Tinto Stadium … “RSL Nation” is unable to scratch the Nation’s Capital off the list of places its beloved Claret-and-Cobalt have never won (Texas, Canada, Philadelphia, Portland) … On Thursday, October 6 in Vancouver, RSL has a shot at ending the Canadian jinx …


REAL SALT LAKE v CHICAGO FIRE – WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 28, 2011 SABORIO SPECIAL FOR RSL STRIKE FORCE:

RSL’s predatory striker Álvaro Saborío moved into the th team’s 2011 scoring lead with his 10 goal of the year Saturday night in Washington, surpassing by one this year’s MLS output for partner Fabian Espíndola … “Sabo” came off the bench to score his fourth goal in his last five th MLS games – and his 10 since June 25 – to put together just the third double-digit goal season in RSL’s seven season history (Jeff Cunningham, 16, 2006; Saborio, 12, 2010) … Espindola is just one goal away from joining that group with five games remaining on the regular season … nd

The early 2 -half game-winner two weeks ago at Seattle th was the 9 GWG for Saborio in his now 46 MLS games st over the last two seasons – placing him in a 1 place tie with Robbie Findley’s 9 game-winners in 96 career MLS games – while Wednesday’s pinpoint header at NY was st the 21 MLS goal overall for the Costa Rican international … “Sabo” was also RSL’s leading scorer during the historic CONCACAF Champions League run, scoring 8 goals in 11 games … When Saborío – the first DP in RSL’s seven-season history – finds the back of the net, Jason Kreis’ team is a dominating 19-2-4 in all competitions (only loss prior to 9/24 at DC was the rain-soaked 4-5 loss at Cruz Azul), compared to the 11-12-13 mark when he plays and does not score, as well as RSL’s 7-3-4 record when Sabo is unavailable …

“BOR-LAVE”

PAIRING

NEARLY

INVINCIBLE:

When 2010 Best XI defenders Nat Borchers and Jamison Olave start together and play 60+ minutes, Real Salt Lake has posted an 8-0-5 mark this season, allowing only 6 goals in those 13 games … When injury, suspension or red cards limit the duo’s time together and cause one or both to miss action, RSL is only 7-8-1 with 21 goals conceded … In addition to resting on Saturday at DC, Olave – an MLS All-Star this season – has missed one game due to the red card on May 28 in the home loss to Seattle, two road games on turf that followed CONCACAF games 72 hours earlier and five games due to the knee injury suffered in the MLS All-Star Game in late July against Manchester United … Borchers was ejected for the third time this season on August 27 at Chivas, denying Nick LaBrocca an “obvious rd goal-scoring opportunity” … Nat was also tossed in the 3 minute of the wild 3-3 draw on July 4 at home vs. NE, and saw one red in CCL play on Feb. 22 at Columbus, when he and Emilio Renteria got tangled and both were ejected in the 72’ … Borchers has missed only 10 of RSL’s 152 matches across all competitions from 2008-present, with the four absences this year surpassing his three combined during the 2009 & 10 seasons …

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 25-18-17 record … As indicated in RED below, RSL is 4-4-6 when opening a 3-game week at home, and a pair of roadies follow … RSL faced that scenario last week, and again this week … The list:

MORALES A MARKED MAN IN MLS: Argentine playmaker Javier Morales has played 116 games for RSL (93 MLS regular-season, 8 playoff, 3 Open Cup, 12 CCL) … During that time, he has been the most-fouled player in the League (reg. season only), an indicator of the target on his back by opposing defenses … The list (from 8/29/07 to 5/7/11): Player Javier Morales - RSL Alejandro Moreno - CLB Eddie Gaven - CLB Robbie Rogers - CLB Guillermo Barros Schelotto - CLB

RSL’s EX-CHICAGOANS: While the Fire has no connections to RSL’s roster, seven members of the RSL family have ties to either the Chicagoland area or the Fire … Assistant Coach C.J. Brown’s Fire legendary Fire career is well-documented, and was honored at Toyota Park during RSL’s visit in June … Woodridge, Ill. native MF Will Johnson began his professional career at the age of 18 as a member of the Fire, playing in six contests (1 goal in 162 min.) during the 2005 campaign … Chicago was the last stop in the once-nomadic career of MF Andy Williams, as the Jamaican notched 6 goals and 16 assists for the Fire across the 2003-04 seasons, leading the squad in assists during both years of his stay (7 in 2003, 9 in 2004) … MF Ned Grabavoy rose to prominence during a standout career for Lincoln-Way central H.S. in south suburban New Lenox, where he claimed several honors, including the 2000 Gatorade H.S. Player of the Year award as a senior … DF Chris Schuler, who has provided depth on the back line in MLS and CCL play during his first two seasons, is an Aurora, IL native, whose sister plays for Northern Illinois and comes from the same Chicago Magic club as Grabavoy … Another RSL central DF, Rauwshan McKenzie, calls Hoffman Estates, IL his hometown, once playing for the Chicago Fire Premier PDL club and developing with the Chicago Sockers F.C. in nearby Palatine, IL … RSL GM Garth Lagerwey is a native of Elmhurst, IL, and played for both the Chicago Magic club team and was a two-time all-state selection as a goalkeeper for York High School … BOMMA’S FIRE FUELS RSL ATTACK: The lone remaining “RSL Original,” Williams again faces Chicago, the team he once called his own in the 2003 and 2004 seasons … “Bomma” appeared in 45 regular-season games for Chicago, starting 37, and scored 6 goals while assisting on 16 others … The former captain of the Jamaican National Team, Williams started all four games of the Fire’s 2003 MLS Cup run, scoring one goal (11/01, series winner in 4-0 aggregate victory over D.C.

REAL SALT LAKE v CHICAGO FIRE – WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 28, 2011 TIRELESS BECKERMAN – DARK HORSE MVP?:

RSL Captain Kyle Beckerman was once again the hero of yet another win for the Claret-and-Cobalt last Saturday, providing the game-winning assist on a free kick in the 54’ from 25 yards, curling an inswinger onto the head of a perfectly-timed run by DF Nat Borchers to down East visitor Sporting Kansas City …

The 29-year-old midfielder upped his team-leading th assist total to nine – good for a 5 -place tie in the League, extending a career high – while the fifth gamewinning assist now places him alone in second place in the league this season, behind only that other “Becks,” LA Galaxy midfielder, David Beckham … KB5’s career total of 10 game-winning assists leads RSL all-time, three ahead of MF Javier Morales (7) … The RSL Captain has started and played a full 90 minutes in 31 of RSL’s 36 games this year (25 out of 28 MLS games, along with 5 of 6 CCL matches and the Open Cup Quarterfinal at Dallas) … Out of the 36 games in all competitions, Beckerman has sat out only the CCL Final v.

RIMANDO SEEKING ANOTHER CLEAN SHEET:

RSL GK Nick Rimando and his stellar defense blanked visiting Kansas City 10 days ago for the team’s leagueth high 13 clean sheet in now 29 MLS games during the th 2011 campaign … The shutout was Rimando’s 12 of the th season (Reynish, 4/9 @NE) and the 50 of his 138-game th RSL career, as well as the 86 of his 283 career MLS games with RSL (2007-present), D.C. United (2002-06) and Miami (2000-01) … Only current FC Dallas GK Kevin Hartman has more career “donuts” than Rimando, with 105 clean sheets in 382 games (19 add’l shutouts in 101 more games) … Each of the ‘keepers has a pair of MLS Cup rings …

DEFENSE THE BACKBONE OF RSL SUCCESS:

RSL’s vaunted rearguard has now conceded 27 goals through 29 games, including the allowance of one goal or fewer in 20 of 29 MLS contests … The team boasted a league-low 0.82 GAA prior to Saturday’s “four-spot” @ DC, including three PKs among the 27 total goals conceded … Last year, RSL allowed just 20 goals in the 30-game regular season, setting a new standard in MLS annals and breaking the 2007 Houston Dynamo record of 23 GA … Among RSL’s 15 wins through 29 games are five victories by a 1-0 count, emphasizing the critical nature of the team’s commitment to defense … With 5 games remaining this season, the 2011 total of five 1-0 wins is a season-record, and equals the combined total of 2010 (three) and 2009 (two) …

BORCHERS FINDS BACK OF NET – AGAIN: RSL DF Nat Borchers – a 2010 MLS Best XI selection along with his center-back partner, Jamison Olave (who was the 2010 MLS Defender of the Year) – has a total of four goals in all competitions this year (three in MLS play, one in CCL), equaling his total goal output from the 2008 (zero), 2009 (one) and 2010 (three) seasons … All told, RSL has seen nine of its 42 MLS goals in 2011 come from its centerbacks, as Borchers’ four goals are nd joined by three from Olave and a pair from 2 -year player Chris Schuler … All three players have been clutch, as Borchers and Schuler each boast a pair of game-winning goals from their scoring output, while Olave’s critical goal in the CCL Semifinal at Saprissa was the away score that granted RSL passage to the Finals …

“YOUNG-UN” GIL STEPPING UP AS WELL: When RSL acquired 16-year old MF Luis Gil in Feb. 2010, few would have imagined 18 months later that the Garden Grove, Calif., native would have played in 18 consecutive games, starting 12 out of 15, replacing the void left by Javier Morales at attacking mid for 8-10 critical games in August / September … Gil has two goals on the season in more than 1000 minutes of play, with the budding 17-yearold playmaker scoring 8/6 v NY (3-0 win) and on 8/20 @ HOU (2-3 loss) …


REAL SALT LAKE v CHICAGO FIRE – WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 28, 2011 RSL “BRACING” FOR SUCCESS: With FW Fabian Espindola’s two-goal ‘brace’ last Wednesday at NY, RSL has now seen 11 of its 31 all-time multi-goal performances occur on the road in its 213-game MLS regular-season game, 12-game CCL and 12-game Open Cup histories … nd The multi-goal game was Espindola’s 2 across all competitions, tying him with RSL attacking luminaries Jason Kreis (2005-07) and Yura Movsisyan (2007-09) … Saborio owns 7 multi-goal performances across all competitions, ahead of Jeff Cunningham (5) and Javier Morales’ tie with Robbie Findley with four “braces,” while Espindola, Movsisyan and Kreis each have 2, ahead of Paulo Junior, Will Johnson, Kyle Beckerman, Atiba Harris and Chris Brown who have each also scored 2 or more times in a game … When an RSL player scores 2 or more goals in a game, the team has posted a 22-3-4 all-time mark … Besides the 4-5 loss at Cruz Azul in CCL play and the 4-6 loss at Minnesota in Open Cup action, when was the lone MLS loss? … June 17, 2007, when Chris Brown’s brace @LA was wasted in a 2-3 loss: G Player 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 3 2

NEW BLOOD JOINING RSL … : At the death of the Sept. 15 MLS roster freeze, RSL GM Garth Lagerwey announced the addition of two players to the team’s roster … Joining RSL on loan from USL PRO Champion Orlando City FC, MF Yordany Alvarez will wear #14 for the Claretand-Cobalt … Now 26 years old and recently named the MVP of the Division 2 USL PRO league, Alvarez is a Cuban-born asylee who defected to the United States during the Olympic qualifying tourney in 2008 … The holding midfielder played at Rio Tinto Stadium in March of 2009 with the Austin Aztex, his side in 2010 as well, prior to the organization’s move to Orlando last winter … Yordany’s performance Wednesday at New York was amazing on several fronts, the first player in recent memory to be signed by the Lagerwey / Kreis regime and forced quickly into action … The Cuban Alvarez had 92 touches in his MLS debut, completing 88% of his passes and winning 6 of 9 duels, according to Opta …

… WHILE OLD BLOOD RETURNS TO HEALTH:

Stalwart MF Ned Grabavoy has played 17, 22 and 31 minutes each of the last three weeks after missing all of August, while FW Cody Arnoux was one of two RSL players to make his team debut two weeks ago at home vs. PHI, joining DF Blake Wagner … Arnoux has missed most of 2011 due to his recovery from a serious knee injury suffered last November while with Vancouver, while Wagner signed with RSL on August 15 after DF Chris Wingert – who has started nearly every game since 2008 – broke his wrist that weekend at Toronto … Wingert has been cleared for action, starting and playing 45 minutes in Sunday’s 0-1 reserve game loss to Kansas City … Another midseason pickup – FW Chris Agorsor – returned to training last week after breaking his right hand in a reserve game at Houston on August 21 … MF Javier Morales has the Oct. 1 match at Los Angeles circled for his return from the gruesome May 7 ankle injury, but the RSL MVP has been elevated to “non-neutral” status in this week’s trainings, traveled with the team to NY and DC and could see action during RSL’s next home game, Sept. 28 vs. Chicago …

&U.S. Open Cup

LINEUP SHUFFLE STOPPED IN TORONTO … : For the first – and only – time in more than a year, Real Salt Lake Head Coach Jason Kreis rolled out the same starting XI on Aug. 13 at Toronto as he had the previous th week – in the team’s 30 game in all competitions this season … Injuries, cards, suspensions, national team duty and fixture congestion had all conspired to prevent a duplicate lineup in back-to-back matches, something that had not happened since July 31/Aug. 7, 2010 – a span of 48 MLS, CCL and Open Cup games …


REAL SALT LAKE v CHICAGO FIRE – WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 28, 2011 DEPTH CONTINUALLY TESTED: The good news is

that talisman MF Javier Morales – the man who has made the RSL attack click since 2008 – returned to training two weeks ago with a “non-contact” decree by Jason Kreis and the doctors … Morales has missed 24 games and counting, as he targets a Sept. 28 return from the broken ankle suffered back on May 7 … This year’s time lost due to injury, suspension or int’l duty: PLAYER

The total number of games lost due to injury or national team duty this season? … More than 100 games worth by RSL’s top contributors … Almost 1/2 of those games missed have been by Morales and Paulo Junior, with RSL posting a 6-5-6 MLS mark in games missed completely by the dynamic duo …

KREIS CONTRACT EXTENDED THRU 2013: On March 24, RSL President Bill Manning and GM Garth Lagerwey announced that the club has extended by two years the contract of current Head Coach Jason Kreis, keeping the youngest MLS Cup-winning manager in League history on the RSL sideline through the completion of the 2013 season … All-time, Kreis now owns a 55-4437 mark in MLS regular-season, playoff and CONCACAF Champions League play … Under Kreis’ leadership, RSL became the first-ever MLS team (and one of just three non-Mexican teams) to win a CONCACAF group, posting a 4-1-1 mark and becoming the first-ever MLS side to advance CCL Final … The former striker’s 2010 side was also the second-highestscoring team in CONCACAF’s group stage, with 17 goals in six games (2.83 goals/game) … MILESTONES ACHIEVED DURING KREIS ERA: During MLS play in 2010, the following numbers established by RSL set or tied new single-season league standards:    

fewest goals allowed (20) overall goal differential (+25) total home points (37) fewest home losses (0) fewest home goals allowed (7)

In addition to those league benchmarks, last year’s edition set franchisehigh records in  wins (15)  goals (45)  scoring output (1.50/game)  points (56)  shutouts (15)  road points (19)  road goal differential (+1)

SEEING RED, BUT TO LITTLE ADVANTAGE: After seeing just one red card for the bulk of 2010 (only a bench red to Espindola in a CONCACAF match in Panama), RSL has seen eight players ejected in its last 39 games, dating back to the Javier Morales ejection at Dallas in last year’s nd playoffs … DF Tony Beltran saw red early 2 half in RSL’s first game of the year at Columbus in the Feb. 22 CONCACAF Quarterfinal, and again last week in Seattle … In between, DF Nat Borchers has seen 3 red cards, Jamison Olave one and MF Will Johnson one …

Back on May 7, in RSL’s 1-0 home win over CD Chivas USA, RSL saw an opponent hit with multiple red cards for the third time in the team’s now 210-game MLS regular-season history, with the 65-minute span with at least a one-man advantage the longest in club annals … For an incredible amount of 49 minutes, RSL enjoyed a TWO-MAN advantage over Chivas USA, playing 11-v9 in deadlocked fashion prior to Will Johnson’s th victory-clinching goal in the 87 minute … On only one nd prior occasion – Oct. 18, 2008, in the 2 -ever game at Rio Tinto Stadium – had RSL enjoyed a 2-man advantage over its opponent, but that was just for stoppage time of the team’s 3-1 victory over FC Dallas, a game known primarily for Johnson’s 2008 MLS Goal of the Year blast … Following the August 3 ejection of KC MF Roger Espinoza th in the 57 minute v KC, RSL opponents have now been subject to ejection on 28 occasions, giving the Claretand-Cobalt a total of 487 minutes with a manadvantage … During those minutes, RSL has now seen a +13 goal difference, thanks to the 4-goal outburst on July 23 vs SJ … All-time, RSL now has been victim of 32 red cards, succumbing to a -9 goal difference in a total of 702 minutes playing a man down … Incredibly, SIX of those nine goals came in one game, the 0-6 loss @NY in th August 2006 when DF Jack Stewart was tossed in the 8 minute … RSL has never played with just nine men due to disciplinary issues, and has now scored SEVEN shorthanded goals (Jason Kreis, 7/4/05 v. NY; Chris Klein & Kreis, 9/16/06 v. DAL; a Chris Leitch own-goal on 7/3/09 v. SJ; Nelson Gonzalez late goal on 5/28/11 v SEA; and the Johnson/Saborio goals on July 4 v NE) …

ANOTHER STREAK IN THE OFFING?: RSL’s 0-2 loss to Columbus on July 30 halted the team’s unbeaten run at seven MLS games, marking the club’s thirdlongest stretch without a loss in team history … The only longer streaks each originated last year, when singleseason runs of 10 and 14 games without a loss, the latter extended to 18 with its hot start this year … TEAM Real Real Real Real Real Real Real Real Real

performed exceptionally in the 45 games played between May 1, 2010 and April 30, 2011, losing only six times in that stretch, the rough equivalent of a seasonand-a-half … Across MLS reg. season, MLS Playoff and CONCACAF Champions League games, Jason Kreis’ team posted an impressive mark of 26-6-13 and outscored opponents 75-33 since May 1, 2010 … RSL would have earned 91 points in this stretch … The MLS equivalents: (reg.-season games only) TEAM Los Angeles Galaxy Real Salt Lake D.C.

Prior to April 30 at Portland, the lone MLS losses both came on the road at Dallas on July 17 and Oct. 30, sandwiched around the bizarre 4-5 loss at Cruz Azul … The fourth loss was the 1-2 decision at Saprissa which enabled RSL to advance to the CCL Final …

HOW DOES RSL GET BACK IN TO CCL?: RSL probably won’t play another international side – exhibition or otherwise – until the 2012/13 CONCACAF tourney, which it could only qualify for by winning the 2011 MLS Supporters Shield crown or be a MLS Cup 2011 participant … RSL saw its other opportunity fall by the wayside this week after falling out of the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup via a quarterfinal defeat at FC Dallas … Had RSL defeated Dallas in last year’s MLS Cup Playoff series, or even had Los Angeles advanced in place of Dallas to MLS Cup – RSL would have qualified for this year’s CONCACAF Champions League due to LA essentially owning “dual” slots (Supp. Shield / Cup participant) and RSL finishing #2 in last year’s overall MLS table …

LATE DRAMA PART OF RSL DNA: MF Will Johnson’s 87’ game-winning goal vs. Chivas way back on th May 7 marked the 16 all-time go-ahead scored by RSL in the final 15 minutes of a regular-season MLS or CCL game … Two of the three RSL goals scored prior to that – Espindola’s 93+ game-winner v COL and Morales’ late equalizer at Monterrey – also meet the dramatic criteria … All-time lists for equalizers and GWG (active players in bold): RSL EQUALIZERS AFTER 75’ (18 total) 95+ ................

DIXON THE LATEST – & FIRST IN AWHILE: During Real Salt Lake’s early years, it seemed like fans’ hearts were routinely broken by an opposing goal from a player few had ever heard of … Between 2005-07, the club’s turmoil-filled early years, 20 different players scored their first-ever MLS goal against the hapless Claret-and-Cobalt … In the Kreis era, as the team matured, that trend slowed to a trickle – only three players in 2008-09 found the back of the net for the first time vs. RSL … Earlier this year, Seattle’s Lamar Neagle became the first player in two years to bury his first career tally against RSL , with his bending 84’ blast that proved to be the game winner … Two weeks later, Philadelphia midfielder Keon Daniel struck with his initial MLS goal … That feat was repeated Aug. 20 in Houston, as homegrown player Alex Dixon opened his MLS account with a stoppage-time dagger for the Dynamo to send RSL to a crushing defeat … Dixon is now one of the 12 to have scored their lone career MLS goal (as of Aug. 28, 2011, indicated by an *) … The list: DATE 05/28/2005 05/28/2005 06/04/2005 06/22/2005 09/21/2005 10/08/2005 10/12/2005 04/08/2006 05/06/2006 05/27/2006 06/03/2006 07/08/2006 08/19/2006 10/07/2006 10/15/2006 04/21/2007 05/05/2007 07/04/2007 08/18/2007 08/18/2007 04/19/2008 09/06/2008 05/02/2009 05/28/2011 06/11/2011 08/20/2011

REAL SALT LAKE v CHICAGO FIRE – WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 28, 2011 FORTRESS STILL STANDING STRONG: Despite

dropping three home games in the last five months, Rio Tinto Stadium and Utah soil remains a “Fortress” for Jason Kreis’ team, as RSL has dropped just 6 of its last 69 home games (44-6-19) across MLS regular season / playoff and CONCACAF / Open Cup play dating back to the start of 2008 … Prior to that, RSL was 15-19-13 on Utah soil in MLS competition, with a -5 goal differential (60 GF / 65 GA) from 2005-07 … nd

The 2010 RSL side was just the 2 MLS team to remain unbeaten at home in an entire season, joining the 2005 SJ Earthquakes (9-0-7) … From June ’09 to May ‘11, RSL went 21-0-8 at home in regular-season play, the longest such run in League history:

With RSL’s 0-2 loss at home July 30 against Columbus, the team saw its once-impenetrable home breached for the third occasion in 2011, including the 1-2 loss on May 28 against Seattle – which snapped its MLS home unbeaten streak at 29 games – and the CCL Final loss on April 27 to Monterrey (MEX) snapped the club’s overall home unbeaten run at 37 games across MLS, CCL and exhibition play … Since June 6, 2009, RSL is 5-1-0 at home in CONCACAF play, 29-2-11 in MLS regular season, 1-0-1 playoffs and 2-0-1 in international exhibitions … The aggregate scoreline in those games?: 98-29 … Form Guide: the 37-3-13 (all competitions) mark from June 6, 2009 – present: (CCL=red; Playoff = blue; friendly = green; Open Cup = underline): 2009: T W T W W W T W T T W W W 2010: T W W W W W W T W T W W W W W W T W W T 2011: W W W W L W T L W T W W T W W L W W W

A LOOK AT THE FIRE The Chicago Fire (6-8-15, 33 pts.) enter their 14th season of MLS play after posting a 9-12-9 record in 2010. Disappointed with missing out on the playoffs for just the second time in club history, the Fire have made many changes to the roster for 2011, bringing in the likes of veteran U.S. defender Cory Gibbs, Croatian Josip Mikulic , as well as Uruguayan striker Diego Chaves. The team also found a consistent goal scorer in Dominic Oduro via trade with Houston at the start of the season. In all, the Fire returned 13 players to the roster, meaning more than half the players opening the season are new to the club in 2011. 2010 MLS AllStar selection and Goal of the Year winner midfielder Marco Pappa th returns for his 4 MLS season and looks to build upon his team leading seven goals in 2010. Joining Pappa in the midfielder are 2010 Fire MVP and newly named captain Logan Pause and last season’s assist leader Patrick Nyarko, while 2011 MLS Combine MVP Jalil Anibaba will patrol the backline with offseason acquisitions Gibbs and Mikulic.

  CHICAGO FIRE TOPPLE NEW ENGLAND REVOLUTION 3-2 Behind first half goals from Sebastian Grazzini, Dominic Oduro and Patrick Nyarko the Chicago Fire (6-8-15, 33 points) took a comfortable 3-0 lead to th the 90 minute but two late goals from the New England Revolution’s Ryan Guy kept things respectable as the Fire defeated the Revs 3-2 Sunday afternoon at Toyota Park. For the second consecutive game the Fire got on the board inside five minutes as Fire captain Logan Pause intercepted an errant Revolution pass inside the center circle before feeding a through ball into the path of Patrick Nyarko. The Ghanaian striker was able to get a slight touch on the ball inside the box before a charging Matt Reis upended him and referee Michael Kennedy pointed to the penalty spot. Argentine midfielder Sebastian Grazzini tallied his third league goal since joining the club in July as he stepped up and coolly buried his penalty kick low and to Reis’ left to give the Fire a 1-0 lead in the fifth minute. Four minutes later, the Fire doubled their lead when a sliding tackle from Josip Mikulic pushed the ball into the path of Grazzini in the middle of the park. The Argentine settled before putting a through ball between two Revolution defenders and into the path of a sprinting Dominic Oduro who rounded Reis th just inside the 18-yard box before tapping in his team leading 11 goal of the year in the ninth minute. th

The Fire made it 3-0 in the 30 minute when Pavel Pardo slipped a searching ball for Oduro through midfield. The Ghanaian attacker ran on to it, holding up before finding a charging Nyarko up the middle. Oduro played a forward pass to his fellow countryman as the Rev’s ‘keeper met the ball at the top of the penalty area and played a weak touch into the path of Nyarko who collected and finished into the empty net, tallying his first goal of the campaign to take the Fire into the half up 3-0. Oduro nearly made it 4-0 12 minutes after halftime when Fire right back Dan Gargan played a looping ball forward for Nyarko. The fleet striker battled off th challenges from Revolution defender Darrius Barnes, breaking free to center a pass for Oduro who’s flicked effort was well-saved by Reis in the 57 minute. New England looked to cut into the Fire lead and came close to pulling one back two minutes later as central midfielder Shalrie Joseph swung a ball to the right finding Ryan Guy with loads of space. The Revs winger caught Fire goalkeeper Sean Johnson cheating off his line and sent in a hooking cross th to the back post which beat Johnson but came off the cross bar in the 59 minute. th

In the 75 minute Guy laid off a ball for defender Kevin Alston on the right who collected and cut past three Fire defenders and into the box before blasting a low, blistering shot to the back post that Johnson dove to save before being cleared away by Josip Mikulic. th

Taking a 3-0 lead into the 90 minute, the Revolution finally found their scoring touch when Alston sent a hopeful cross to the top of the penalty area where Johnson collided in the air with second half substitute Diego Fagundez. The ball fell to Guy who scuffed his effort into the empty net to pull things to 3-1. Late into stoppage time the Revolution cut the score to 3-2 as Fagundez back heeled a pass for Milton Caraglio at the top of the 18. The Argentine striker played a square ball across the box to Guy who slotted past Johnson for his second goal in as many minutes but the comeback wasn’t enough as referee blew the full time whistle just seconds later. ODURO EXTENDS TEAM LEAD IN GOALS AGAINST NEW ENGLAND; NAMED OPEN CUP PLAYER OF THE ROUND th Dominic Oduro kept his name in the Budweiser Golden Boot race, scoring his 11 goal of the season in the ninth minute of Sunday’s 3-2 win over New England. He currently sits two behind D.C. United’s Dwayne De Rosario in the goal race. Along with his 11 league goals, Oduro has bagged two, both game winners, in the U.S. Open Cup for a total of 13 across all competitions in 2011. The resurgent striker has tallied seven of his 13 goals in his last 10 matches dating back to August 3 vs. Philadelphia.

With New England’s two late goals, Nyarko’s first half strike stood as the game winner, the fourth of his career and first since scoring the winner against Wednesday night’s opponents Real Salt Lake in a 1-0 Fire victory on August 1, 2009.

PAUSE CONTINUES TO BAG MILESTONES WITH 200 REGULAR SEASON START VS. NEW ENGLAND Before even helping in the buildup to both of the side’s first two goals in Sunday’s win vs. New England, Logan Pause hit another career milestone with th his 200 MLS start in the match. Having played in 222 regular season matches, the Fire captain passed up Jesse Marsch (200), Chris Armas (214) and Zach Thornton (215) earlier this season to move into second behind only C.J. Brown (296) in the club’s all-time regular season appearance list. Despite that standing, Pause’s 200 regular season keep him in fourth in that category behind Armas and Thornton (both 212) and Brown (290). Earlier this season, Pause became the first field player in MLS history to play in 21 or more regular season matches for the same club in nine consecutive seasons.

2010 YEAR IN REVIEW The Fire ushered in a new era with the hiring of former El Salvador national team boss Carlos de los Cobos ahead of the 2010 campaign. The new manager brought in a new system to the club, while welcoming in Designated Players in Mexican striker Nery Castillo and Swedish winger Freddie Ljungberg. Despite the acquisitions, de los Cobos’ side came up just short of the 2010 MLS playoffs, missing the postseason for just the second time in club history. At season’s end, two legendary players announced their retirement, with the Fire bidding goodbye to U.S. giant Brian McBride and the last remaining “Fire Original”, defender C.J. Brown who spent all 13 seasons of his MLS career in the Windy City, appearing in 371 matches for the club across all competitions.
