Cassar: Maund, Schuler back in training after injuries

Cassar: Maund, Schuler back in training after injuries

The two might not play this weekend against LA Galaxy, but it’s still a bit of good injury news for once. Real Salt Lake’s injury crisis isn’t necessarily easing, but it’s taken a positive turn with Aaron Maund and Chris Schuler returning to training today. In an interview with Bill Riley on ESPN 700, RSL coach Jeff Cassar said the two defenders were back in training, but was quick to note that neither player is fully up to speed. He also said that neither Joao Plata nor Jordan Allen were involved in full training. “What we need to get back to, is when you step on the field,...

RSL vs. Chicago Fire: What we’re watching

RSL vs. Chicago Fire: What we’re watching

Real Salt Lake’s noon match gives us plenty we should pay attention to. Traveling to Chicago this weekend to face the Fire, Real Salt Lake has a lot more worries than we would like this early into the season. With different areas of concern for the trip to Chicago, here are the top three things to watch this Saturday. Injuries The big one for RSL is injuries. With Aaron Maund and Demar Phillips being out last week, RSL was able to adjust defensively to have a decent showing. But after adding Chris Schuler and Justen Glad to the injury list, the defense will be a little tricky. Also a...

RSL vs. Chicago Fire: Three lineup decisions RSL has to make

RSL vs. Chicago Fire: Three lineup decisions RSL has to make

RSL will be short-handed against Chicago Fire, and that’s going to force some decisions. Tomorrow’s match against Chicago Fire is one that will see RSL coach Jeff Cassar forced to make several decisions he might have not wanted to make — like who plays at center back, and can he replace Joao Plata? Let’s go over some of those decisions he’ll be making. Center back We talked about this one yesterday, and it’s hard to really get past this one. This is a big decision to be made. Aaron Maund is reportedly at “80 percent”, Justen Glad and Chris Schuler are out, and we’ve got...

Can RSL get by with Chris Wingert at left back?

Can RSL get by with Chris Wingert at left back?

Will the veteran defender be enough, or will Acosta become the backup of choice for Cassar? It has often been said that the 2017 version of the Real Salt Lake roster may contain the best depth the team has had in its 13-year existence. That depth was put to the test immediately against Toronto FC this past Saturday, as Jeff Cassar used David Horst and Chris Wingert in the defense in place of the injured Aaron Maund and Demar Phillips. Wingert is playing his tenth season for RSL this year and will turn 35 in June this year. He’s never been the fastest player on the field, having said...

Real Salt Lake vs. Toronto FC: What we’re watching

​RSL's first match sees a weakened defense but refreshed attack take on fierce Toronto FC. It's finally here. The season opener is today. After a disappointing end to last season and an offseason that saw many changes, we get to see Real Salt Lake in action. We get to ease our way into 2017 by hosting one of the most dangerous attacks in the league. Toronto FC lost the 2016 MLS Cup without conceding a shot on target and Giovinco, Altidore, Bradley and company will likely have something to prove. The Back Line Aaron Maund and Demar Phillips will both miss this match with injury. Justen...

Aaron Maund is out, says a report from Salt Lake Tribune reporter Chris Kamrani. You wanted to see a center back pairing of Aaron Maund and Chris Schuler tomorrow, right?
