My homie Denz of RSL Soapbox is always up for an exchange of three questions...so here you go!
1) What's the focus for RSL right now because it seems like San Jose might be a little bit too far to catch with 5 points and a game in had, but LA isn't a huge threat either below you. Is the feeling that RSL is locked into the 2 seed and have things been a little bit listless lately with the losing skid?
I think if you look at the table it is 5 points between RSL and San Jose and while I don't think the Supporters' Shield holds the prestige it did when teams at least played every other team twice, it would be a nice goal. Realistically it comes down to two things, finish in one of the top 3 spots in the conference (avoid the wildcard match) and win our Champions League Group.
I do think that for RSL things broke their way earlier in the year, and we know that often that balances out over the season and my hope is that we are back in balance and we can just get back to playing the game and having the results not base themselves on bad calls, bad bounces, but more on the play of the teams.
2) Alvaro Saborio seems to be as hot and cold of a forward as there is in the league. How is his form right now?
3) It seems like Javier Morales has been good, but not great this season while Ferreira was able to basically come straight back into MVP form after 15 months out. Is Morales the same player he was before his injury, how is his season going and is he an injury concern as he's listed as questionable for the game?
