Alright, everybody. Ready for a Real Salt Lake match? We are, we think. But before we really get ready, we want you to help us predict the starting lineup. Think you can do that?
I've omitted all players who are currently on national team duty, so don't feel like you're somehow going to sneak in a Nick Rimando pick. That's not going to happen. But! And hey, maybe it's just a hint — we should see Jeff Attinella. Yeah, this is why you come to RSL Soapbox. Knowledge like this.
Anyway, here you go. Some team news to keep in mind:
- Demar Phillips has been in and out of full training after suffering a recurrence of his hamstring strain during the last match.
- Pecka's training fully now, which is a positive sign. (So is Justen Glad, says Chris Kamrani.)
- Jamison Olave and Chris Schuler should both be ready to go, which is nothing but positive for us — especially with Elias Vasquez, who is an interesting backup option, out on international duty.
- John Stertzer played 90 minutes against LA Galaxy II. That's the most exciting thing I've heard all day, I think. (That wasn't web development-related. You know how you guys keep asking about being able to rate players yourself, then compare them with ours?
