Let’s Sam Johnson is a huge success. Beckerman can’t really play every game anymore, but we also have Everton Luiz. Will we just rotate every week? In my opinion, we need to find consistency. However the problem is, Kreilach deserves feild time. Beckerman deserves feild time. So does Luke, Everton, and Besler. It seems like RSL fans have completely thrown away the idea of a 4-4-2 Daimond. But why? Johnson playing striker with Kreilach as a second striker. Everton and Beckerman rotating at CDM, Sava and Baird on the sides, and Rusnák pulls the strings.
Rumor: Argentinian striker Germán Cano has been rumored to be a potential target for Real Salt Lake. The 30-year old striker recently played for Independiente Medellín in Colombia. He recently posted a “good bye” on his social media to the Independiente Medellín fans.
Official: Donny Toia was the third player selected as he returns to Real Salt Lake almost eight years after becoming the club's first Homegrown Player signing. He spent one season with RSL before being released. He returned to MLS with Chivas USA in 2014 and has made 109 appearances over the last five years with Chivas, the Montreal Impact and Orlando City SC. The left back appeared in just four matches in 2018 after he started 30 matches with the Lions in 2017.
Something seems off. How can we have such a good team, be able to beat LAFC in front of their annoying fans, and not be able to at least make the final? We are good enough.
Yes, we could get a number 9. Let me just add, Kei Kamara just left Vancouver, and is eligible for the re-entry draft ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. However, we have players who are at least mediocre at the position. Here’s the problem. Kreilach can play it, Sunny left, so midfield would be Rusnák, Beckerman, and Luke (unless he gets chosen in the expansion draft). Beckerman will retire at some point, so what happens there? Baird can play it, but he’s a very different striker
