SPORTING KANSAS CITY vs REAL SALT LAKE SPORTING PARK, Kansas City, Kan. April 5, 2014 (WEEK 5, MLS Game #42) 7:30 p.m. CT (KMCI-38; KTVA-ABC) It’s a rematch of MLS Cup 2013 ahead on Saturday evening as Sporting Kansas City play host to Real Salt Lake at Sporting Park. When the teams last met four months ago, Sporting lifted the MLS Cup trophy following a 10-round penalty shootout. Both teams have gotten their new campaigns headed in the right direction, Sporting winners of two in a row following their 3-2 win at Colorado last weekend, while Real are undefeated in four games to start the year, coming off an impressive 3-0 home win vs. Toronto FC. REFEREE: Armando Villarreal. AR1 (bench): Corey Parker; AR2 (opposite): Craig Lowry; 4th: Fotis Bazakos MLS Career: 31 games; FC/gm: 23.8; Y/gm: 3.0; R: 12; pens: 10 DISABLED LIST: none SUSPENDED: none INTERNATIONAL ABSENCES: none HEAD-TO-HEAD ALL-TIME (16 meetings): Sporting 8 wins, 23 goals … Real 5 wins, 20 goals … Ties 3 AT KC (8 meetings): Sporting 5 wins, 12 goals … Real 1 win, 7 goals … Ties 2 LAST YEAR (MLS): 7/20: RSL 1, KC 2 (Findley 56 – Saad 67; Opara 97+)  This is the only league meeting between the teams this season.  The teams of course met in MLS Cup 2014 last year, Sporting winning in a 10-round penalty shootout following a 1-1 draw over 120 minutes. Álvaro Saborío gave RSL the lead in the 52nd minute, but Aurélien Collin pulled SKC level in the 76th minute; Collin then converted the cup-winning penalty.  Sporting also won the lone league meeting between the teams a season ago, a 2-1 win July 20 at Rio Tinto Stadium  RSL haven’t won in Kansas City since 2009; their goal scored in the MLS Cup Final was their first-ever in three appearances all-time at Sporting Park.  Coaches record: Peter Vermes vs. RSL: P7 W3 L3 D1 … Jeff Cassar vs. KC: first game SPORTING KANSAS CITY Sporting Kansas City recorded their second consecutive win, getting a dramatic late winner for a 3-2 victory against the Colorado Rapids on Saturday evening at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. Sporting sit in second place in the Eastern Conference with 7 points from 4 games. LAST MATCH  Sporting broke through in the 50th minute. A long pass down the right side found Sal Zizzo, and he hit a crossgoal pass that left Graham Zusi with a simple finish at the back post.  But seven minutes later, the Rapids got to the penalty spot again after Ike Opara grabbed the ball in the box, and once again, Vicente Sanchez converted from the spot.  Then in the 78th minute, a tackle from Benny Feilhaber on right back Shane O’Neill earned yet another penalty kick from referee Jose Carlos Rivero. Sanchez once again finished from the spot, putting the Rapids in front  But just 45 seconds later, Feilhaber made amends by volleying in a loose ball in the penalty area. Then in the 85th minute, Colorado defender Marvell Wynne was sent off for a second yellow after a foul on Zusi.  The game-winner came two minutes into stoppage time, when substitute Dom Dwyer blasted home a closerange effort from a tight angle.  Sporting manager Peter Vermes made three changes to the team that took a 1-0 win against the San Jose Earthquakes at Sporting Park. Matt Besler came into central defense for Aurelien Collin, Oriol Rosell started in the midfield in place of Lawrence Olum, and Claudio Bieler came in up top in favor of Dom Dwyer.  SPORTING KANSAS CITY (4-1-2-3): Eric Kronberg - Kevin Ellis, Ike Opara (Aurelien Collin 61), Matt Besler, Seth Sinovic - Oriol Rosell (Lawrence Olum 61), Paulo Nagamura, Benny Feilhaber - Sal Zizzo, Claudio Bieler (Dom Dwyer 83), Graham Zusi. TEAM NEWS  Sporting are now undefeated in three games in a row, with wins in the last two, and scored a season-high three goals in the victory in Colorado.

“It showed a lot about our team, because basically we weren't on today,” manager Peter Vermes said. “I think what we did was that we kept pushing and kept trying. I don't think that we were firing on all cylinders today, but what I do think is that we kept playing and kept trying to push it.” Dom Dwyer scored his second goal in as many games, leading Sporting to a second consecutive win in dramatic fashion Saturday with his stoppage-time long-range bomb. After scoring his first career MLS goal last Aug. 3, Dwyer now has four goals in his last 14 league appearances, also scoring once in five postseason matches a year ago. The goal scored by Graham Zusi five minutes after the halftime restart was the earliest of the season for SKC – all five goals they have scored have come in the second half. “After a very poor first half I thought we came out, got an early first goal which helps, and thought we were a little unfortunate with a couple of their PKs,” said Zusi. “But credit to us for battling back and getting the second one and then the third as well. For us to play not as well as we would have liked to, and to get a win on the road in a tough place to play says a lot about a team.” Sporting KC conceded two penalty kicks in a game for the third time in club history in the Colorado match, and also gave up their first spot kick in more than a year (since March 9, 2013, vs. Toronto). “For a guy that's just getting his feet wet but he's been in the league for as long as he has, he's coming along. He has a lot of really good qualities,” Vermes said of goalkeeper Eric Kronberg. The MLS Cup rematch is another chapter in a budding rivalry over the past few years. “I hate them very much,” said Dwyer. Said RSL defender Nat Borchers: “I like the talk. I like when teams don't like each other. And we don't like Kansas City just as much as they don't like us.” “You're always going to have that game in the back of your mind,” said RSL midfielder Sebastian Velasquez. “And I think it's kind of like motivation to go into this game and know that you have this rivalry that has been built over the last couple of years. We want to beat them and show them we're the best team in the league.”

REAL SALT LAKE Real Salt Lake recorded their first victory of the season in impressive fashion, cruising to a 3-0 win against Toronto FC on Saturday afternoon at Rio Tinto Stadium. RSL are in a tie for second place in the Western Conference with 8 points from 4 matches. LAST MATCH  Real Salt Lake were in the lead after just 10 minutes. Referee Baldomero Toledo pointed to the spot after Toronto defender Doneil Henry spun Saborio around and flung him to the turf. Saborio took his own penalty and easily sent TFC goalkeeper Julio Cesar the wrong way.  Luis Gil then added a second in the 28th minute. Saborio dummied a ball that made its way to defender Chris Wingert, whose shot rebounded and fell at Gil's feet, and his effort took another deflection on its way to the back of the net.  RSL completed the rout in the 55th minute. Javier Morales popped the ball up over the defenders and inside the area, where Saborio latched onto the pass and flicked it off the inside of the right post for the Real third.  RSL head coach Jeff Cassar made one change to the team that reached a 1-1 result with the LA Galaxy at Rio Tinto Stadium. Olmes Garcia came into the side in place of Joao Plata.  REAL SALT LAKE (4-3-1-2): Nick Rimando - Tony Beltran, Chris Schuler, Nat Borchers, Chris Wingert (Rich Balchan 58) - Ned Grabavoy, Kyle Beckerman, Luis Gil - Javier Morales (Luke Mulholland 89) - Olmes Garcia (Devon Sandoval 84), Alvaro Saborio TEAM NEWS  Real Salt Lake have started a season undefeated in their first four games for the second time in club history, after 2011, when they won their first four games.  “The best overall performance I think we’ve had. Offensively, I thought we were great with the ball and had a lot of good ideas and I thought our defensive shape was fantastic,” said RSL head coach Jeff Cassar. “We gave up some chances – not too many chances. I thought it was a really mature performance from our guys.”  Alvaro Saborío has scored three goals in the last two games, netting twice in the victory against Toronto FC. For Saborío, it was his 13th career multiple-goal game in 101 league appearances; he’s now tied for 10th in MLS history.  “He was fantastic. It started with his defense – he was playing really good defense, challenging for every ball in the air – and I thought it just brought him into the game, said Cassar. “Javier [Morales] gets him in dangerous spots – it gives our forwards the green light to get excited because they know they’ll be getting a quality ball.”  With Joao Plata out injured, Olmes Garcia made his first start of the season, after coming on as a substitute for Plata the week before.  Luis Gil played the full 90 minutes for a third consecutive match and chipped in with his first goal of the season.  “We just kind of challenged him to make sure we were getting him around the ball. We wanted him to feel free to get into the attack more, and just be mindful of our shape in the back. We challenged Luis to get into the attack more tonight and he was fantastic,” Cassar said.

MLS GAME INFORMATION


  

Four RSL players – goalkeeper Nick Rimando, defenders Tony Beltran and midfielders Kyle Beckerman and Luis Gil – were called into the U.S. national team for the midweek friendly vs. Mexico, the most of any MLS team. “Obviously, we miss those guys, but it's time for other people to step up, and today was fantastic," Cassar said. "[It] kind of messes up your rhythm just a little bit, but they're coming back on Thursday. We'll get a nice session in, and we'll try to cover a few things in the session on Friday.” There will be an injury concern for the SKC match, after fullback Chris Wingert was forced from the field with a groin injury before the hour mark against Toronto FC. Wingert is not expected to be available this weekend.

RSL INJURY REPORT

OUT: FW Robbie Findley (R knee) FW Joao Plata (L hamstring) DOUBTFUL:

DF Aaron Maund (hamstring) DF Kwame Watson-Siriboe (R knee)

PROBABLE: MF Sebastian Velasquez (L hamstring) FW Jordan Allen (L ankle) FW Devon Sandoval (R foot)

STILL UNDEFEATED IN CASSAR ERA:

A month ago, RSL bench debutant Jeff Cassar became the first of the club’s three all-time coaches to earn a win in his debut, as both John Ellinger (April, 2005) and Jason Kreis (May, 2007) drew in their first-ever games ... After 4 games, RSL is 2-0-2 w/ 8 points, including 4 points from a home-and-home with LA, 4 road points (W at LA, T at SJ) and 4 home points (T v LA, W v TOR) ... The most complete team win in recent memory came a week ago, when RSL saw a pair of Alvaro Saborio goals sandwiched around a Luis Gil strike to dominate a highly-anticipated visit from Michael Bradley, Jermain Defoe and Toronto FC, winning 3-0 against the $100 million men ... RSL hired Cassar as its 3rd head coach in club history back on December 18, just 11 days after falling in MLS Cup 2013 via PK shootout, and just 8 days after Kreis announced he would accept the NYCFC offer ... Cassar joined RSL back in May, 2007 as one of Jason’s first hires, the duo teammates in Dallas during the early years of MLS ... The long-time assistant and former MLS goalkeeper worked closely with Kreis and GM Garth Lagerwey to institute the club’s “Team is the Star” ethos, with his ascension consistent with RSL’s “family” philosophy ...

NEW STAFF, LOADS OF MLS EXPERIENCE:

All four of RSL’s new assistants - Daryl Shore, RSL veteran Andy Williams, former Houston Dynamo FW Paul Dalglish and former LA/SJ/HOU DF Craig Waibel - played professionally, with Shore and Dalglish both minor-league head coaches a year ago ... Combined, RSL’s coaching staff has won MLS Cup as either a player or coach a total of eight times (Waibel 4x, Dalglish 2x, Cassar/Williams 1x each) ...

USA NATS RETURN AFTER MEXICO FRIENDLY: RSL contributed a league-high four players to USMNT boss Jurgen Klinsmann’s roster for Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Mexico in Phoenix, with a trio of the club’s perennial starters - GK Nick Rimando, MF Kyle Beckerman and DF Tony Beltran - starting the match ... MF Luis Gil spent 3 days in Phoenix getting another look after his January camp inclusion and earning his 1st senior cap in the 2-0 W over South Korea earlier this year, but did not play ...

Rimando (90 min), Beckerman (72 min) and Beltran (71 min) performed well, with the RSL Captain widely credited for holding down the midfield’s defensive responsibilities and freeing Michael Bradley to creatively attack ... Beltran started shakily as might be expected of an emergency call-up, but provided service to Bradley on the USA’s 2nd goal by Wondolowski and was effective going forward ... Rimando could do little on either goal allowed, but provided a handful of clutch saves and was praised for his distribution out of the back ...

MLS CUP REMATCH AT SPORTING PARK:

The “RSL Family” is still pained at memories of its frigid shootout loss at MLS Cup 2013 last Dec. 7 in Kansas City, remembering a trio of shots that hit Jimmy Nielsen’s woodwork - Robbie Findley, Kyle Beckerman, Javier Morales - as well as a 2nd Alvaro Saborio goal disallowed due to offsides and an Aurelien Collin challenge on a Findley breakaway that could have seen a 2nd yellow on the centerback ... Saborio put the Claret-and-Cobalt on top in the 52nd minute, firing a 20-yard half volley home past Nielsen ... Sporting equalized in the 76th minute, when Collin buried a FW Graham Zusi corner kick from 10 yards out ... After regulation and extra time left the sides tied at 1-1, the teams entered a penalty kick shootout ... The sides traded goals and misses until the 10th round, when Collin buried his penalty for SKC before former RSL DF Lovel Palmer sent his spot kick off the crossbar to give SKC the shootout by a 7-6 margin ...


REAL SALT LAKE @ SPORTING KANSAS CITY SATURDAY APRIL 5 2014

6:30 PM MT

SPORTING PARK

KANSAS CITY, KS

ALL-TIME HISTORY v SPORTING/WIZARDS:

MORE ROAD PERSPECTIVE:

RSL is only 1-5-2 in regular-season games at Kansas City, the lone victory a 1-0 decision over the then-Wizards on Aug. 29, 2009, at Community America Ballpark ... That win came via an early Pablo Campos goal (set up by Andy Williams) in a game that saw MF Ned Grabavoy ejected just before halftime ...

RSL was only 4-24-5 away prior to Jason Kreis taking over in May, 2007; since that time, RSL’s MLS road mark is slowly rising at 28-53-31, meaning that RSL earns a road point more than 50% of the time since that change ...

RSL has a 5-8-3 MLS regular season record and a 6-84 record across all competitions against Kansas City ...

That March 15 draw at SJ moved RSL’s all-time MLS reg. season road mark to 32-77-36 (.347; 149 GF / 229 GA) through 145 all-time road contests in League play …

Earlier that same year, KC was the first visitor to win a regular-season match at Rio Tinto Stadium, riding two Josh Wolff goals in a May victory that was RSL’s last loss prior to a 37-game unbeaten home streak (4/27/11, 0-1 to Monterrey) ...

In the first 3 seasons with Jason at the helm, RSL was only 6-26-11 on the road ... Since RSL won MLS Cup 2009, the club has posted a 22-26-20 mark on the road; only LA (26 wins), KC and SEA (24 each) have been more successful away from home ...

The clubs have faced off a total of nine times in KC (including MLS Cup), with RSL posting a 1-5-3 road record at Sporting ...

FINDING BACK OF THE NET AWAY:

2013 REWIND vs KANSAS CITY:

Back on July 20, the Cup finalists met at Rio Tinto Stadium in Utah, SKC grabbing the full 3 points ultimately proving crucial in order to host MLS Cup when DF Ike Opara headed home the game-winner at the death in the 97+’ ... RSL FW Robbie Findley gave RSL the lead in the 56’ by beating Nielsen with a header in the box, before Soony Saad’s equalizer in the 63’ ... RSL missed 4 starters in that match, as GK Nick Rimando, DF Tony Beltran, Capt Kyle Beckerman (USA) and FW Alvaro Saborio (Costa Rica) were on Gold Cup duty that month, as was KC defender Matt Besler (USA) ... Kansas City’s win - disputed by the RSL faithful due to the Opara pushing and shoving which ended up extending the 5’ of added time - snapped an 11-game unbeaten run for the Claret/Cobalt across all competitions (6-02 MLS, 3-0-0 in Open Cup) that saw RSL outscore its opposition 30-9 ... The match saw a total of six yellow cards – four given to RSL – and resulted in the sending off of DF Chris Wingert in the 66th minute ...

TAKING THE SHOW ON THE ROAD:

The March 15 draw at SJ extended the club’s fine recent road form, earning points in 7 of its last 9 across all competitions away from home, dating back to midAugust of last year ... RSL (+3) and its 2013 MLS Cup Playoff opponents Portland (+5) and Kansas City (+3) were the only trio of teams to own a positive goal differential away on the road last year, with an MLS-high 26 road goals (just under 50% of the season total) scored by RSL ... 22 of RSL’s 56 points last year were earned from a club-record-tying 6-7-4 road mark, with 2012 and 2013 each setting a new club record for road points for the historically road-weary side ...

Only once in the club’s last 15 road regular-season games has RSL suffered a shutout loss, dropping an 0-2 decision at Seattle in mid-Sept. ... RSL has scored 28 goals in the other 14 road games surrounding that setback in the last calendar year, posting a 6-3-5 road mark, one which includes several high-scoring results: a pair of 3-3 draws (at POR, at SJ), 2-4 (at LA), 3-4 (at NY) and 2-3 (at MTL) losses, as well as 3-0 (at DAL) and 4-1 (at CHV) wins ...

HISTORIC ROAD WINS A YEAR AGO:

On July 13 of last year, RSL weathered the early storm at Dallas to record a 3-0 road win, breaking its “Texas Hex” to win on Lone Star soil for the first time ever in 23 attempts, courtesy of a Javier Morales game-winning goal, heroics from Josh Saunders and Jeff Attinella in the net and insurance strikes from Ned Grabavoy & Olmes Garcia ... RSL ended last year with wins in 5 of its last 10 away from home (at TOR, at CHV, at NE, at DAL and at VAN, with only stoppage-time stunners at MTL and at NY shocking RSL), also snapping its Canadian “donut” during the stretch, winning on June 29 in Toronto ... RSL has still never won in Washington, D.C. (9 MLS or Open Cup attempts), Philadelphia (3 draws) or Houston (0-8-1 all-time) ... RSL visits Philadelphia April 12 and Houston on May 11 this year, with attempts to rectify those 0-win marks ... The team mark of 6 road wins in each of the last two years is one better than in 2011, exceeding the four achieved in 2010, more than doubling the two earned in each of the 2007-09 seasons …

RSL FORM TO BE ADMIRED:

RSL enters Saturday’s MLS Cup 2013 rematch at KC undefeated this year in 4 matches and earning at least a point in 12 of its last 13 games overall (the West Semi Leg One at LA, 0-1; MLS Cup at KC is technically a tie) ... RSL has earned points in 11 of its last 13 regular-season games, dropping back-to-back games at SEA and v SJ in mid-Sept. of last year ... At Rio Tinto Stadium, RSL has posted a 8-1-2 mark in its last 11 games overall in MLS league or playoff action ...


REAL SALT LAKE @ SPORTING KANSAS CITY SATURDAY APRIL 5 2014

6:30 PM MT

TOUGH SLATE TO KICK OFF 2014:

2014 sets up with a difficult schedule for RSL from the outset, with 4 of its first 6 games and 6 of first 10 on the road … Early home games include perennial power Los Angeles, the new-look, star-studded Toronto FC and West rival Portland … Once the first 1/3 of the season is complete, RSL will lose 3 or 4 starters (Rimando, Beckerman, Saborio and maybe Gil) to World Cup play, and have to use its depth – potentially the best in MLS – to navigate mid-May to late July, including (hopefully) multiple Open Cup dates, before have a completely healthy, rested and ready team for the stretch run starting July 30 …

BECKERMAN, RIMANDO TOP TWO ACTIVES:

Entering today’s match, Rimando and Beckerman rank first and second, respectively, amongst active MLS players in all-time regular season minutes played (Rimando: 31,653; Beckerman: 26,913), games played (NR: 350; KB: 329) and games started (NR: 350; KB: 300) ... Both players have played in MLS since 2000, when both debuted for the Miami Fusion ... Now in their 15th MLS campaigns, the duo have shared a locker room in 10 of those years (MIA 2000-01; RSL 2007-present) ...

YOUNG ‘UN LUIS GIL RISES TO OCCASION:

RSL MF Luis Gil has played the full 90 or 120 minutes in each of RSL’s last 13 games across all comps, the club posting a 7-1-5 mark in those games with the versatile MF contributing on attack as well as on the all-important defensive side of the ball ... The recent run of stability for Gil comes after the 20-year old only went the full 90 in 8 of 26 previous MLS games in 2013 and only 9 times in 54 games from 2010-12 ... Gil came to RSL via Sporting Kansas City in the Spring of 2010, when the young U.S. player was awarded via lottery ... KC traded Gil to Real Salt Lake in exchange for a conditional SuperDraft pick, an international slot and future transfer fee considerations ... While being brought along slowly by RSL boss Jason Kreis, Gil has excelled for Tab Ramos’ U.S. U-20 side in the last two years, especially at last summer’s U-20 World Cup ... Gil has displayed speed, athleticism, vision and attacking prowess, the newly-turned 20-year old assuming minutes in the last 3 seasons vacated by Andy Wiliams’ retirement, Javier Morales’ injury woes and the trade of Will Johnson ...

SABORIO BACK TO LEAD RSL:

RSL FW Alvaro Saborio - the team’s all-time leading scorer with 71 goals in 119 games across all comps for the Claret/Cobalt - has scored three goals in the last two weeks to open his account on the young MLS season ... Despite playing in just 16 MLS games last season, Saborio scored 12 goals for a league-leading strike rate of 0.75 per game ... Saborio also had 2 goals in 3 Open Cup games ... “Mr. Clutch” for RSL, Saborio has 18 gamewinners and 13 multi-goal games among the 101 league games that have seen his 55 goals, the highest scoring rate in league history for players with 75 or more career MLS games …

SPORTING PARK

KANSAS CITY, KS

RSL (USUALLY) CELEBRATES IF SABO SCORES:

RSL’s all-time leading scorer, Costa Rican int’l FW Alvaro Saborio, usually leads RSL to victory when finding the back of the net ... Despite the heartbreak of MLS Cup 2013,, RSL still owns a dominating 37-6-11 all-time record in all comps when Sabo scores ... Entering his 5th year, Saborio joins Kreis (2005 Open Cup) and Robbie Findley (2009 MLS) as the lone “hat trick heroes” in RSL’s 10-year, 344-game history across all competitions ... In all comps, Sabo now owns a team-record 71 goals in 119 games, w/ 22 game-winning goals and 16 multi-goal matches (18 and 13 in 101 MLS games) ... Prior to last year’s Aug. 18 1-2 L v DAL, the two most recent losses when Sabo finds the back of the net were against LA, June 20 of last year and also in the 2011 West Final at LA ... The only loss prior to 9/24/11 at DC was the rain-soaked 4-5 loss at Cruz Azul in Aug. 2011 ... RSL is only 20-28-19 when Sabo plays and does not score, but 17-8-6 when he is unavailable due to suspension, injury or national team duty since his arrival in 2010 …

VETERAN CONTINUITY LEADS YOUNG CORE:

RSL’s 2014 roster is split into two factions as the club seeks to capture the elusive hardware from a year ago, as Cassar’s locker room boasts 11 players who have called RSL home for 5 or more years ... They are: Rimando (8 seasons), Beltran (7), Wingert (8), Beckerman (8), Borchers (7), Findley (6), Grabavoy (6), Morales (8), Gil (5), Schuler (5), Saborio (5) ... On the flipside, RSL also boasts a young group of 9 players who are aged 22 or younger, many of who will see extensive time in MLS, especially when Saborio, Beckerman and Rimando are tabbed for the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil this Summer ... They are: Velasquez, Plata, Sandoval, Gil, Salcedo, Lalo, Allen, Garcia, Lopez ...

LONGEST ACTIVE POSTSEASON STREAK:

RSL’s current streak of 6 consecutive MLS Cup Playoff berths is the longest active run of postseason competition, with only NE having a longer run of 8 consecutive years and NY 6 since 2000 ... Only the triumvirate of Western elite RSL, Seattle and Los Angeles have advanced to Playoffs each of the last five seasons ...

RAREFIED AIR OF SUSTAINED SUCCESS:

The Sept. 29 win last year @ VAN put RSL at both the 15win and 50-point plateaus for the FOURTH consecutive season, something no MLS club had accomplished in the post-shootout era (LA Galaxy 2010-13 joined RSL with a late-season win over Montreal) ... D.C. United’s 2005/06/07 teams, as well as Los Angeles Galaxy 2010/11/12 joined RSL 2010-12 as the only teams to have put together three straight 15-win / 50-point seasons ...


REAL SALT LAKE @ SPORTING KANSAS CITY SATURDAY APRIL 5 2014

6:30 PM MT

GUNNING FOR YET ANOTHER FINAL:

New RSL boss Jeff Cassar and crew look to emerge from this season by not only advancing to the club’s 9th Conference, League or continental title, but bringing home elusive hardware ... Since the 2008 campaign – the first full season under former head coach Jason Kreis and GM Garth Lagerwey, RSL’s record in final games/series: 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 2012 -2013 Open Cup Final v D.C. United L, 0-1 West Final v Portland W, 4-2 / W, 1-0 MLS Cup at Kansas City T, 1-1 (6-7 PKs) 2014 ???

IMPROVING ON RECENT SUCCESS:

A year ago, RSL ended up one bounce of a ball away from each of the championships that compose the American treble - Supporters Shield (3 pts off), Open Cup (lost final at home) and MLS Cup (lost PK shootout on road) ... Last year’s club set new marks for goals scored (57), road goals (26) and tied the 2012 mark for road wins (6) and road points (22) ... In 2012, RSL set a new club record for wins in a season (with 17) and saw Jason Kreis’ team capture a franchisehigh 57 points, surpassing the 56 captured during the 2010 30-game season ... The team’s record points-pergame average of 1.87 set in 2010 was unassailable, while 2013 saw RSL establish a club mark for goals scored, 2nd only to NY in 2013 ...

SCORING RECORD SHATTERED iN 2013:

Despite the Sept. 13 shutout suffered at Seattle - the first time in 23 games across all comps that RSL failed to find the back of the net - and scoring just 4 goals in its last 7 reg. season games, RSL still owned a Westleading 57 goals scored on the reg. season, 10 more than 2012 ... RSL finished with a +16 goal difference, 9 shy of the league and club mark set by RSL back in 2010 (+25) ... The 23-game scoring streak (including 19 straight in MLS play) nearly tripled the club’s previous record (8 games) for avoiding the shutout ...

SPORTING PARK

KANSAS CITY, KS

RIO TINTO STADIUM - THE FORTRESS:

RSL concluded the 2013 campaign with 3 consecutive wins at home, including 2-goal postseason victories over both Los Angeles (2-0 aet, reversing an 0-1 first leg deficit) and Portland (4-2 first leg, en route to 5-2 aggregate series win) to earn the West’s MLS Cup 2013 berth ... RSL was winless in its prior three games at Rio Tinto Stadium, dropping one-goal games at home to San Jose (Sept. 21, 1-2 loss) and D.C. United (Oct. 1, 0-1 loss in Open Cup Final) before earning a 1-1 draw v Dallas on Oct. 5 in a game that saw RSL play with only 10 men for the final 75 minutes ... While the Open Cup Final loss at home last season was the club’s 4th home setback across all competitions, the team went 16-4-4 a year ago (50 GF / 24 GA) ... RSL boasts a 77-16-24 mark in its last 117 home games dating back to the beginning of 2008, the first full season under GM Garth Lagerwey ... In that span, RSL has outscored opponents by 138 goals (224-86), with a 60-12-26 reg. season mark (180/68), 6-1-1 CCL record (17/5), 5-1-1 playoffs (11/4), 5-2-0 Open Cup (16/9) and 2-0-1 int’l exhibition (5/2) ... All-time, RSL is now 75-31-39 in MLS regular-season play during 9+ seasons at home, outscoring opponents 240-140 ...

WALL OF THE WASATCH NICKY RIMANDO:

RSL GK Nick Rimando preserved the 3 points in opening day’s 1-0 road win at Los Angeles by denying a Robbie Keane PK during stoppage time, the 12th denial in 38 spot attempts for RSL opponents (Rimando 11 for 36, Garlick 1 for 2) ... Rimando, who was named MLS Player of the Week for 2014 Week One, also made 8 other saves on the night, many of the spectacular variety ... Nicky extended his all-time MLS PK “denial” record to 20 career stops, holding opposing PK takers to just 41-for-61 against the former DC/MIA and current RSL netminder ... A year ago, Rimando also saved a stoppage-time PK on May 8 at NE against Saer Sene to preserve a road win, with that saved PK the 2nd in a span of 4 games for Rimando - he stopped Mejia in the first half of the April 20 1-0 win over Chivas ...

PLATITA WITH THE SILVER TOUCH:

Playing at an all-star caliber level during the first 3 games of the season, one of RSL’s two former Toronto FC players - diminutive FW Joao Plata, now in his 2nd season with RSL - has 2 goals and 2 assists, but will miss Saturday after a moderate left hamstring strain suffered in the 28th minute against LA ... Plata - often a spark off the bench - has started all 3 games for Cassar alongside running mate Alvaro Saborio, the Ecuadoran now owning 22 starts in 32 alltime appearances for RSL ... All-time, Plata now has 9 goals and 15 assists in MLS play, with 5g/8a for RSL and 3g/5a for Toronto (201112) ... The 22 year old FW also had 2g/2a for RSL in Open Cup play a year ago ...

WHO’S MANNING THE MIDDLE?:

The biggest surprise to Cassar’s first two lineups was the inclusion of DF Aaron Maund - another Toronto castoff - into the centerback rotation alongside veteran Nat Borchers ... Maund, now in his 3rd MLS season (2nd with RSL), made his 5th and 6th all-time starts for the Utah side at LA and at SJ, before suffering a hamstring injury in the 70th minute on March 15 ... Maund gave way to 20-year old homegrown DF Carlos Salcedo, who most expected to occupy the starting slot until the April return for injured DF Chris Schuler (ankle), who enjoyed a spectacular postseason last fall ... However, Maund demonstrated calm and maturity throughout preseason, to go along with his unique blend of size, speed, strength and aerial ability ...

SCHULER STEPS UP ON BACK LINE:

RSL allowed just 19 goals in Schuler’s 21 MLS regular season and MLS Cup Playoff appearances in 2013, good for an average of 0.9 goals per game ... By contrast, the Claret-and-Cobalt allowed 26 goals in the 18 MLS games Schuler missed last year due to stress fractures in his foot, yielding a 1.44 goals against average ... So far this season, a similar split seems to be borne out, as the club allowed 3 goals in 2 games without the 25-year old centerback, compared to just 1 goal in 180 minutes upon his return to the lineup ...

RIMANDO THE SHUTOUT KING - ALMOST:

Rimando needs just 3 more shutouts this season to become Major League Soccer’s All-Time leader in the category, trailing Kevin Hartman (112 clean sheets) with his 110, of which 74 have now come in the RSL Claretand-Cobalt ... Rimando – now in his 15th year as an MLS standout who has started in every career appearance in goal, and who won MLS Cup in 2004 with United and in 2009 with RSL – came into MLS with the Miami Fusion ... A comparison of Rimando’s various MLS stints:

MORE ON THE RIMANDO RECORD HORIZON:

CAPTAIN BECKERMAN 20th TO 300:

Rimando is 4th all-time in regular season games played with 350 ... Should pass Cunningham (365) for third, and get close to Ralston (378) for 2nd this season; Hartman all-time leader at 416 ... Rimando also 3rd all-time in games started with 350, could pass Ralston (372) this season (Hartman all-time leader with 411) ...

Beckerman will crack the league’s all-time top-10 in games played this year, likely reaching 5th this year, passing Andy Williams (332), Chris Klein (333), Pablo Mastroeni (334), Tyrone Marshall (337), Jaime Moreno (340) and Joe Cannon (342) ...

Now in his 8th season with RSL, Rimando trails only the recently-retired Hartman in most league GK categories; Rimando needs 28 wins to overtake Hartman for the all-time lead, along with 233 saves, 67 games and 5,608 minutes … The shutout record should come this season, with wins and games possibly coming in 2015, and the saves/minutes marks likely in 2016 (barring injury or extended absence) … Current San Jose ‘keeper Jon Busch is the only active GK who can potentially threaten the Hartman/Rimando thresholds in each category in the next 5 years or so …

“KB5” is the seventh player in MLS history with RSL ties to hit 300+ appearances, joining the following as former/ current Claret-and-Cobalt players in the exclusive club (active members of the club in red): FW Jeff Cunningham (365) GK Nick Rimando (350) - RSL GK MF Chris Klein (333) MF Andy Williams (332) - RSL Assistant Coach MF Kyle Beckerman (329) - RSL Captain MF Carey Talley (315) FW Jason Kreis (305)

Rimando 3rd all-time in minutes played with 31,653 and will likely pass Ralston (33,143) for 2nd this year (Hartman all-time leader with 37,260) ...

Beckerman is now 7th all-time in games started with 300 (passing Jay Heaps at 299 last Saturday), should catch Chris Henderson (304) in 6th and close friend Pablo Mastroeni (316) at 5th later this year ...

RIMANDO CLEAN SHEET / ASSIST COMBO:

TICO SABO NO LONGER PERFECT ON PKS ...

In a home match v VAN on May 4, 2013, RSL took the early 2nd-half lead when GK Nick Rimando watched a Nigel Reo-Coker free kick sail over his goal and quickly restarted play with a pinpoint goal kick, finding FW Joao Plata wide right 60 yards upfield ... Plata took a few touches and sent a cross onto the head of MF Luis Gil for the U.S. U-20 star’s second tally of the season ... The game-winning assist was Rimando’s 4th of his career and the 7th all-time helper in his now 15 seasons ... However, May 4 v VAN marked only the second time the veteran combined a shutout - the 102nd of his career with a game-winning assist (8/8/09, 1-0 v SEA) ...

RIMANDO REWRITING RSL/MLS RECORD BOOKS:

RSL GK Nick Rimando made his 200th career MLS regular-season appearance for the Claret/Cobalt last Oct. 19 in Portland, becoming the first player in the club’s nine seasons to reach the bicentennial mark ... Rimando also has 15 CONCACAF, 19 playoff and 3 US Open Cup appearances for the team, which acquired him from New York just prior to the 2007 season ... Former RSL MF Andy Williams - the team’s Head Scout in 2012/13, now an assistant coach - was the previous appearance leader for RSL, with 189 games played from 2005-11 for the Utah club, while current Captain Kyle Beckerman, DF Nat Borchers and DF Chris Wingert each have 170+ reg. season games played for the club ... Rimando’s win last week v TOR gave the perennial MLS GK of the Year candidate and everyone’s “homeboy” 87 RSL wins - the club only has 107 - and a total of 74 clean sheets for the Utah side ...

Last April 6 @COL, RSL’s all-time leading scorer Alvaro Saborio saw his 8’ PK attempt saved by Rapids GK Clint Irwin, snapping Sabo’s 12-for-12 streak of perfection from the spot ... In an RSL uniform, Sabo is now 13for-14 in MLS games after beating TFC GK Julio Cesar on Saturday, with the Costa Rican international also carrying a 4-for-4 mark in CONCACAF Champions League ... RSL’s last PK miss prior to Sabo’s a year ago was 12 attempts earlier, as FW Robbie Findley saw his spot kick on Sept. 9, 2010, saved @SEA by GK Kasey Keller in an eventual 0-0 draw ... All-time, RSL is now 34-for-39 from the 12-yd spot ... In addition to Saborio (2013) and Findley (2010), other RSL players to fail to convert are Javier Morales (2008), Alecko Eskandarian (2007) and Andy Williams (2006) ...

... BUT OPEN CUP HISTORY FROM SPOT IS:

With both Joao Plata and Javier Morales converting from the spot in the June 12 5-2 win over Charleston a year ago, RSL continues its perfect 6-for-6 penalty kick conversion rate in Open Cup play ... Joining the active duo are Will Johnson (1-for-1), Jason Kreis (1-for-1) and Jeff Cunningham (2-for-2) ...

RSL dropped to 32 games below .500 on May 24, 2008, after a 1-2 loss at Dallas, the club’s low-water mark in terms of overall record ... RSL went 8-5-8 the rest of the way to earn a playoff berth, knock out #1 seed Chivas and even host the West Final that season ...

Saborio’s two-goal effort a week ago allowed RSL to see its 46th multi-goal individual game in RSL history, across 344 games in all competitions [MLS (290), Playoff (19), CCL (16) & Open Cup (17)], with 17 of those 46 multi-goal games coming on the road … The list: Player Alvaro Saborio Kyle Beckerman Álvaro Saborío Olmes Garcia Ned Grabavoy Álvaro Saborío Álvaro Saborío Fabian Espindola Álvaro Saborío Álvaro Saborío Fabian Espindola Álvaro Saborío Álvaro Saborío Álvaro Saborío Fabian Espindola Álvaro Saborío Álvaro Saborío Javier Morales Javier Morales Álvaro Saborío Paulo Junior Will Johnson Álvaro Saborío Álvaro Saborío Javier Morales Álvaro Saborío Álvaro Saborío Javier Morales Robbie Findley Yura Movsisyan Robbie Findley Robbie Findley Yura Movsisyan Fabian Espindola Kyle Beckerman Robbie Findley Chris Brown Jeff Cunningham Atiba Harris Jeff Cunningham Jeff Cunningham Jeff Cunningham Jeff Cunningham Jason Kreis Jason Kreis

When an RSL player scores 2 or more, the team is now 38-4-4 all-time … The loss 7/27 @NY was only the 2nd in RSL’s MLS history when a multi-goal game did not result in points for the team; besides the 4-5 loss at Cruz Azul in CCL (2010) and the 4-6 loss at Minn. in Open Cup (2005), the lone prior MLS loss came June 17, 2007, when Chris Brown’s brace @LA was wasted in a 2-3 setback ...

MORE MULTI-GOAL MADNESS:

In 119 MLS/CCL/Open Cup/Playoff games, Saborio’s total of 16 multi-goal matches more than doubles the total of #2 Jeff Cunningham (5) and Javier Morales/ Robbie Findley/Fabian Espoindola with 4 “braces” each, while “Sabo” owns the club’s lone postseason multi-goal match, coming Fall 2011 against SEA in the West Semis ... Other RSL players to score 2+ goals: Movsisyan and Kreis (2x each), along with Paulo Junior, Will Johnson, Kyle Beckerman, Atiba Harris, Chris Brown and now Ned Grabavoy and Olmes Garcia, who have each also scored 2x in a game …

Should RSL win Saturday, the club’s all-time MLS regular-season mark would reach .500 at 108-108-75 ... Should RSL attain the “even” mark in MLS game 291, it would mark the first time since the club was 3-3-2 back in 2005 that RSL owned a .500 winning percentage ...

ALL-TIME GOAL +/- TRENDS POSITIVELY:

It took 265 all-time regular-season matches, but the May 19 4-1 victory @CHV last year put RSL’s all-time aggregate goal differential in MLS play deep into positive territory at the conclusion of a game, the club scoring 341 goals all-time while conceding 338 ... The May 8 loss @MTL by 2-3 score returned the club’s all-time ledger back to even, after the first-ever foray into +1 territory 3 days prior with the 2-1 win @NE ... Back on Sept. 21, 2011 in a 3-1 win at Red Bull Arena in New York, RSL briefly got its goal +/- head above water, but a late Joel Lindpere goal dropped the side to even, three days before a 1-4 road loss at D.C. United ... When Jason Kreis took over RSL four games into the club’s third season in 2007, the differential was minus-43, eventually dropping as low as minus-57 after a loss at Dallas in May, 2008 ... It took 160 regular-season matches, but RSL finally made up the difference ... Last week’s 3-0 win v TOR allowed RSL to set a new alltime +20 high-water mark, surpassing the +17 originally set last Aug. 30, in a 4-2 win v PDX, and matched in this season’s opening day 1-0 win @ LA ...

THE MYTHICAL “FIRST-CHOICE XI”:

While Kreis started the same XI in back-to-back games to open 2013, it hadn’t happened in 13 consecutive games until home games against SJ & LA in early June, the team’s last such occurance (incl. playoffs) ... RSL rolled out the same XI just 4 times out of 46 games across all competitions last season ... How rare are back-to-back lineup duplicates for RSL? It happened only once in 45 games in 2011 (Aug 6/13) and just twice in 41 games in 2010 (June 25/July 2; July 31/Aug 7) ... Due to injuries, cards, suspensions and national-team duty a year ago, RSL boss Jason Kreis fielded his “firstchoice” starting XI for only 59 minutes last season back on May 5, a 2-1 home win over New England, a victory marred by the Will Johnson red card in the 59’ ... That occasion - the first of the year and only time in 34 MLS games in 2012, besides the July 31 CCL match at Herediano - came on nearly the one-year anniversary of the last regular-season occurance, May 7, 2011, when RSL saw Javier Morales chopped down from behind and lost until late Sept. with a horrifically broken ankle ...

Real Salt Lake’s eye towards the future was bolstered a year ago 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 20-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

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.

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. 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.

December 2012 saw Beltran re-up with RSL for four more years, while January saw the young DF rewarded with an invite to “Camp Klinsmann” and his first-ever US cap, starting and playing 45 minutes against Canada in a 0-0 draw. Beltran followed that up with a Gold Cup invitation, starting and playing 90 minutes in front of a home crowd in the 4-1 win over Cuba at the RioT. Beltran then earned his 1st-ever MLS All-Star selection 48 hours later.

WEIGHT: 195 DOB: 9/19/90 HEIGHT: 6-1 HOMETOWN: Dorchester, MA ACQUIRED: December, 2012 PRONOUNCIATION:

After spending the better part of three years languishing on the bench in Chicago, Watson-Siriboe received a much-needed career reboot in June 2012 when RSL acquired him via trade with the Fire. RSL assistant coach C.J. Brown was the driving force behind the acquisition, having seen firsthand Watson-Siriboe’s physical talent and strong work ethic when the two played together in Chicago in 2010.

It’s not often that a first-round draft pick plays 15 league games in his rookie year and then gets traded in his first offseason, but that’s exactly what happened to defender Aaron Maund, who started nine MLS matches for Toronto last year before being traded to RSL for Justin Braun on Dec. 3.

Acquiring Watson-Siriboe paid off handsomely for RSL in 2012, as the UConn product played well in 12 league games and started 10 in fill-in duty for injured center backs. Watson-Siriboe – who played in more games and tallied more minutes in one half-season with RSL than he did in 2 ½ years in Chicago – was expected to get many more opportunities to shine in 2013, beginning the season as a starter with regular center back Nat Borchers out until mid-April while recovering from offseason surgery on his left quad.

Maund was a casualty of a season – and offseason – full of change in Toronto, getting shipped off shortly before his second head coach at TFC lost his job. He’ll undoubtedly have much more stability at Real Salt Lake, where he’ll learn from Head Coach Jason Kreis and Assistant/Defensive Specialist C.J. Brown as he competes for time at center back.

Unfortunately for Kwame, a mid-June reserve match on the road in Phoenix saw him suffer a torn ACL and force him out for the remainder of the 2013 season ...

Maund struggled in his first Open Cup start against Atlanta, but has rebounded to offer an excellent MLS outing against his former Toronto mates back on June 29 at BMO FIeld - a 1-0 RSL win - and battled in his 2nd RSL start, a 1-2 home loss to Kansas City . Maund will compete with both Carlos Salcedo and Brandon McDonald for minutes next to Borchers throughout August, Sept. and October, while Chris Schuler could return in late August as well.

However, most players aren’t like Kyle Beckerman, who continued to improve and reach new heights for both club and country in 2012. The Claret-and-Cobalt captain led the Utah side to all-time highs in points and wins while appearing in two World Cup Qualifiers, captaining the U.S. in its January 2013 friendly against Canada and playing the full 90 in the Stars-and-Stripes’ historic August 2012 1-0 win against Mexico at the famed Estadio Azteca.

Despite dealing with several injuries during the 2012 season, Borchers remained a rock for RSL, starting all 26 league matches that he appeared in and finishing the year sixth on the team in minutes played. Always a calming influence in the center of the Claret-and-Cobalt’s backline, the “White Rhino” brought unparalleled organization, tactical awareness and consistent play to the field last season as he helped RSL remain defensively strong. Borchers’ stabilizing presence has been even more important in 2013 as RSL began life without center back Jamison Olave, who was traded to New York along with forward Fabian Espindola in December. Unfortunately, the Pueblo, Colo. native wasn’t able to guide the backline from the jump in 2013, as he dealt with a quad injury that caused him to miss the first six games. Since then, however, Borchers has brought leadership and stabilization to a whirlwind of young centerbacks and outside backs that have seen time for RSL during the first half of the season, helping the club to one of the top two goals against averages in MLS.

RSL long had its eye on Lovel Palmer, nearly trading for the Jamaican international while he was in Portland during the 2012 season. The Claret-and-Cobalt got its man in Stage 2 of the MLS Re-Entry Draft on Dec. 14, 2012, agreeing to a deal with the 28-year-old defender/ midfielder less than a week later.

Acquired in a trade with Toronto on Jan. 30, 2013, it looks like the 20-year-old Plata could become the latest discarded MLS player to have a re-birth at Real Salt Lake. Much like RSL defender Aaron Maund, the talented Plata was a victim of some turbulence at TFC, which sent him on a loan to Ecuadorian side LDU Quito halfway through 2012 before trading him to RSL this offseason.

A former Jamaican national team teammate of RSL Head Scout Andy Williams, Palmer has primarily played right back for the Claret-and-Cobalt, backing up starter Tony Beltran and providing added depth along the left side of the backline. The arrival of Palmer and midfielder Khari Stephenson this offseason give RSL its first Jamaican players since Williams retired following the 2011 season. Palmer created the go-ahead goal back on May 11 at Montreal, his shot deflected home by Ferrari for an Own Goal to give RSL the lead. Palmer has also shown well in both MLS and Open Cup play during Beltran’s 2013 international duty and Chris Wingert’s early-season injuries that kept him out of the first 10 games.

The tiny Ecuadorian – Plata stands just 5-foot-2 and weighs in at 135 lbs. – showed very well for the Claret-and-Cobalt during preseason, giving defenders fits with his quickness, agility, skill and finishing. The Ecuadorian international is a significant addition to RSL’s revamped forward corps – look for him to provide a spark off the bench as a third forward and get an occasional spot start for lead forwards Robbie Findley and Alvaro Saborio. Plata has grown into a role of constant contribution for RSL, either as a starter or off the bench. He has seen significant minutes alongside either Findley, Olmes Garcia or Devon Sandoval, while he and Saborio formed an instant friendship in the preseason that has carried over to the field, at least when Sabo is available.

Real Salt Lake brought Findley back for a second stint in Utah on Jan. 16, 2013, sending the Portland Timbers allocation money for the rights to the speedy striker, who had already signed with MLS at the time of the trade. Findley played for RSL from mid-2007 through 2010, when he left the Claret-and-Cobalt after the MLS season to join English Championship side Nottingham Forest. Portland selected the Arizona native in the expansion draft in November 2010, thereby acquiring his rights and forcing RSL to trade for them in order to bring him back to Salt Lake. Findley scored 29 goals during his first stint with the Claret-and-Cobalt, leading the team and setting a career high with 12 goals in the 2009 MLS Cup Championship season. RSL is hoping that the 2010 World Cup veteran will be able to bring that type of production back to the Wasatch Front in the 2013 season, when he’ll lead RSL’s line alongside striker Alvaro Saborio. Findley has 5 goals through the first half of the season with RSL, tied with two others for the team lead on a balanced side. Clearly a better soccer player than he was upon his departure, Findley has rarely displayed the blinding speed he was once known for, rather choosing guile and skill to demoralize opponents and create for teammates.

Perhaps no player in Major League Soccer was poised to have a better 2011 than Javier Morales. 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. 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.

DOB: 4/10/89

After not getting much playing time with Columbus in his first two years as a pro, Grossman is ready for a new lease on life with Real Salt Lake, which picked up the Duke University product in the November 2013 MLS Waiver Draft. The big, hard-working and aggressive midfielder will take some time to adjust from his old position in the center of the midfield to his new spot at the outside of RSL’s diamond, but he is expected to challenge for minutes once he gets settled in. The St. Louis native’s tenacious style is sure to play well with Claret-and-Cobalt fans, who never fail to appreciate a little on-field intensity. Grossman suffered a concussion in a late March match at Dallas in which he started, knocking the promising MF out of action of any kind for nearly two months. His late-summer return to health has seen Grossman contribute to the reserve side and push for minutes with the first team.

Blessed with good size and incredible speed, 20-year-old Colombian forward Olmes Garcia comes to RSL as a relatively unknown quantity. A talented but raw prospect, Garcia did well at Colombian First Division side Deportes Quindio, scoring seven goals in 47 total appearances after signing with the team as an 18-year-old in January 2011. He’ll need some time to adjust to a new country, a new team, a new language, a new culture and new tactics, but Garcia is a significant part of the Claret-and-Cobalt’s long term plan. He’ll have plenty of time to grow into a large role; he signed a five-year contract with RSL on a transfer from Quindio. On April 1 against BYU in a reserve exhibition at Rio Tinto Stadium (att: 6,335), Garcia was the star of the show, displaying speed and one-on-one ability to wow the fans. Will need to harness that raw talent and effectively utilize his skills in the framework of the team philosophy, but his MLS debut at DAL on 3/23 saw his header off a corner kick smack the left post on his first touch in the North American league.

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 - Saborio had the best season of his three-year RSL career in 2012, lighting up the league to the tune of 17 goals, five multi-goal games and three assists in 31 appearances. Super “Sabo” led RSL in scoring, was third in the league in goals behind Chris Wondolowski and Kenny Cooper and – most notably – set the new Claret-and-Cobalt record for goals in a year, breaking the mark of 16 set by Jeff Cunningham in 2006.

DOB: 9/29/83

After spending the second half of 2012 training with the Claret-and-Cobalt while not officially a member of the first-team, RSL-Arizona Academy product Carlos Salcedo will finally get his chance to step on the field in a MLS match this year. The 19-year-old center back still has a long way to go, but has the physical tools necessary to be successful on the professional level. Expected to log plenty of time in the expanded 2013 Reserve League as he continues to hone his technique and develop tactically, the young man stepped up big in early May at NE, starting the 2-1 win and earning Kreis’ praise for his ability to fight for every ball and be physicall as needed.

Whether or not Sabo can do it all again in 2013 remains to be seen, but things seem to be working in his favor. The Costa Rican international enters the MLS regular season on a tear for his country and is surrounded by a greatly improved forward corps featuring Robbie Findley, Joao Plata, Olmes Garcia an Devon Sandoval. Those four newcomers should help take some of the defensive attention off of Saborio, opening up space – and hopefully creating more chances – for the skilled striker.

DOB: 6/16/82

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. RSL’s longest-tenured field player, Chris Wingert had one of the best seasons of his 10-year MLS career in 2012, setting career highs and finishing second amongst RSL field players with 31 league games played, 30 league games started and 2,603 minutes played. The always steady Babylon, N.Y. native was consistent as ever last season, playing rock solid defense along the left side and getting forward to help out in the attack well, registering two assists on the season. Wingert will be hard-pressed to replicate those numbers in 2013, with the 30-year-oldleft back scheduled to miss the first six weeks of the season due to a broken right metatarsal suffered during offseason training. Expect him to be his usual self – smart, disciplined and in ridiculously good shape – when he returns.

The 33-year-old ‘keeper once again finished at or near the top of Major League Soccer in goals against average, wins and shutouts last season, finishing fourth in 2012 Allstate MLS Goalkeeper of the Year voting. The Claret-and-Cobalt will expect more of the same in 2013 from Rimando, who is more motivated than ever to keep performing well as he looks to lead RSL to league glory while cementing his role for the U.S. Men’s National Team.

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.

Gil continued to develop in 2012, building on his solid 2011 by setting career highs in games played, games started, minutes played and assists last season. Playing at both the top and side of Real Salt Lake’s midfield diamond, the 19-year-old was more consistent than ever last year, turning in an increased amount of even performances as RSL Head Coach Jason Kreis began to rely on him more and more. Gil will have an even larger role in 2013, with the club’s December trade of midfielder Will Johnson to Portland opening up a more permanent spot in the first XI for the California native. Gil will have to balance his RSL duties with a busy schedule with the U.S. U-20 national team, which will play in the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey in June and July. Thankfully, Gil seems up to the challenge, saying early this preseason that he wants to “step up and prove something” in 2013.

Capable of playing any of the four spots in RSL’s midfield diamond, the versatile Grabavoy recorded the most games played, games started, minutes played and assists of his RSL career in 2012. Primarily deployed on the outside of the midfield, the incredibly technical Grabavoy became one of the Claret-and-Cobalt’s more important players last season, playing well on the field and helping to set the tone in the locker room. Entering the second year of a three-year contract signed before the 2012 season, Grabavoy will be counted on to play a major role again in 2013. The 28-year-old New Lenox, Ill. native looked better than ever in the 2013 preseason, exhibiting tactical awareness and on-theball calmness while excelling in nearly every preseason game he featured in.

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.

RSL can’t afford another injury to Schuler in 2013, as the Utah side will be counting on the 6-foot-4 defender to be a game-in, game-out starter at center back following the offseason trade of defender Jamison Olave to New York. Whether he’s paired with Nat Borchers or third-center back Kwame Watson-Siriboe, Schuler is expected to show well in 2013, with Head Coach Jason Kreis expecting the fourth-year defender to breakout and earn the attention of U.S. Men’s National Team Manager Jurgen Klinsmann.

DEVON SANDOVAL

FORWARD

HEIGHT: 6-1 WEIGHT: 190 DOB: 6/16/91 HOMETOWN: Albuquerque, NM ACQUIRED: 2013 MLS SuperDraft, 29th overall (2nd Rd) PRONOUNCIATION:

RSL coaches really liked what they saw out of Sandoval when he trained with the Claretand-Cobalt for a week last summer, going as far as to trade up two spots in January’s MLS SuperDraft to nab the University of New Mexico product with the team’s second round pick (29th overall). Sandoval has repaid the club’s faith this preseason, playing well enough to earn himself a full contract with the team. The Albuquerque native brings a different element to Real Salt Lake’s five-man forward corps, playing the pure hold-up role that was missing at times in years past. Expect him to get some MLS time during his rookie season when Real Salt Lake Head Coach Jason Kreis wants to run a true bruiser at opposing defenses.

ABDOULIE MANSALLY

HEIGHT: 5-10 WEIGHT: 170 HOMETOWN: Banjul, The Gambia ACQUIRED: via Discovery, 6/20/12 PRONOUNCIATION: ab - do - LYE

After taking a huge leap forward in 2011, when he made 20 league appearances and 16 MLS starts, Schuler took a step back in 2012, playing in just 13 games in an injury-riddled campaign. The Chicagoland native showed well at the beginning of the season, starting RSL’s first three matches and seven of its first 12 to help the team to a fantastic 7-3-2

DEFENDER

DOB: 1/27/89

RSL pounced on Mansally after he was released by New England in May 2012, bringing in the Gambian international for a trial starting on May 30 and signing him to a full contract three weeks later. The 24-year-old did well in his first season with the Claret-and-Cobalt, appearing in five league games and starting a playoff match after moving from forward – where he played in New England – to left back. The blazing fast defender will need to carry over his solid play into 2013, as he’ll begin the year in the starting lineup with regular left back Chris Wingert out until mid-April with a broken metatarsal. Known as “Kenny” throughout his MLS career, has recently requested to be called by his given name, Abdoulie.

JEFF CASSAR

6:30 PM MT

HEAD COACH

ALL-TIME RECORD: 1-0-1 (MLS) COLLEGE: Florida International ‘96 HOMETOWN: Livonia, MI APPOINTED: Dec. 18, 2013 PRONOUNCIATION: KUH - sarr AS A PLAYER: Played 11 seasons as a goalkeeper for Dallas, Miami and New York from 1996-2006 ...

Former MLS GK Jeff Cassar joined the Real Salt Lake technical staff on May 24, 2007, exactly three weeks after his former teammate Jason Kreis assumed the head coaching duties for NYCFC. Under Cassar and the entire RSL Technical Staff, goalkeeping and defensive performances at Real Salt Lake have established new standards for Major League Soccer. The 2010 season was a record-setting campaign, as the RSL goalkeeping contingent of Nick Rimando and Kyle Reynish allowed just 20 goals across 30 league games –surpassing the previous low of 23 season matches. Rimando was recognized as an MLS All-Star for his work with Cassar, and was one of three finalists for 2010 MLS Goalkeeper of the Year. Reynish shone well for a young player in his limited Open Cup, regular-season and CONCACAF action spelling Rimando, a testamentto the manner in which Cassar’s experience deftly guides netminders at various career stages. Cassar has been involved in Major League Soccer since the league’s inception in 1996, spending 11 seasons between the posts for three squads from 1996-2006 before retiring to become FC Dallas’s goalkeeper coach in January 2007. During his career with Dallas (1996-97, 2003-06), Miami Fusion FC (1998-2001), and the MetroStars (2002), Cassar made 79 appearances (76 starts), posting a 1.76 goals against average, a 28-36-10 record, and recording 13 shutouts. Prior to his entry into the college and professional ranks, the Michigan native appeared numerous times for the U.S. U-18, U-20, and Olympic National Team programs. Mr. Cassar also appeared in five MLS Cup Playoff contests while with the Fusion and helped a pair of squads – the 2000 Fusion and 2005 FC Dallas teams – reach the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final. In addition to his MLS experience, Mr. Cassar also spent time with English sides Ipswich Town and Bolton Wanderers following the 2002 season before returning to Dallas in the summer of 2003.

GM GARTH LAGERWEY

HEAD COACH

COLLEGE: Duke ‘94 HOMETOWN: Elmhurst, IL APPOINTED: September, 2007 AS A PLAYER: Played 5 seasons as a goalkeeper for Kansas City, Dallas and Miami from 1996-2000 ...

Trained as an attorney, Lagerwey oversees all aspects of the soccer team’s off-field business, conducting Real Salt Lake’s personnel acquisitions, managing the team’s salary and operations budgets and cultivating the reserve team and youth development programs. Named RSL’s second-ever General Manager on Sept. 19, 2007, the former MLS GK has worked tirelessly to transform both the team and management cultures of the organization, overseeing one of the most remarkable competitive turnarounds in modern American sports. Under his direction over the last 7 years in Utah, RSL has evolved from league laughingstock in 2007 to MLS Cup Champions just two seasons later. Since moving into Rio Tinto Stadium in October, 2008, Real Salt Lake has won one MLS Cup, advanced to another, played in a Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup Final, advanced to four of the last six MLS Conference Finals, become the first American side to win a CONCACAF Champions League group and the first team from either the U.S. or Canada to advance to the CCL Final. With annual aspirations to compete across multiple competitions, RSL has long valued contribution throughout the entire roster, with 26 players starting at least one league game in the 2013 season. Currently built for international success, Lagerwey and RSL currently boast the longest-tenured core in MLS history, as 11 players will kick off at least their fifth season together on opening day. Five of those 11 arrived in 2007, the same year Lagerwey arrived – GK Nick Rimando, MF Javier Morales, DF Chris Wingert, FW Robbie Findley and MF and current Captain Kyle Beckerman. The following year, DF Tony Beltran was drafted while DF Nat Borchers was brought to the U.S. from foreign shores. Rounding out the list are 2009 acquisition MF Ned Grabavoy and 2010 pickups FW Alvaro Saborio, DF Chris Schuler and MF Luis Gil.

DAN BARLOW

Barlow, the longest-tenured member of the RSL Technical Staff, was hired 2 months prior to former boss Jason Kreis. Barlow has transformed RSL into one of the fittest clubs in MLS, taking advantage of the home venue’s altitude and managing minutes under the demands of the long domestic season and grueling international travel. Under Barlow’s evolving technique and guidance, RSL players see their fitness routines and nutritional intakes constantly monitored, even during the brief offseason between campaigns. In season, weights, resistance and aerobic programs are installed to ensure peak performance during the long and often arduous MLS season, which usually sees RSL also competing in concurrent tournaments, such as CONCACAF Champions League and Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup.
