So, RSL will be continuing to go deep into CONCACAF play. Does anyone know if Collen Warner or Van Shaik will be on the road with the team? Warner played so huge in their game against Cruz Azul...

They'll be on FOX Soccer on Tuesday, April 5th at 10pm ET vs. Saprissa in Costa Rica.

Jarad unfortunately sustained an injury on the 2nd day of training camp with RSL, and they decided against giving him a full time contract. Warner will probably be on the traveling squad, but there's no saying how much time he will see, their midfield is so ridiculously crowded and some of their older guys seem to just keep getting better and better, which makes it difficult for Warner to get significant minutes

I wonder if it might be better for Warner if he were to get sent to another team. A team which might be looking to build for the future with speed, talent, and youth, and which might currently be lacking some playmaking talent in the midfield. Hmmmmmmm . . .

It was Saprissa 2-1 RSL tonight for a 3-2 RSL win on aggregate.

Huge result for them despite the loss. Central America is not an easy place for American teams to play to say the least. Now they have Monterrey or Cruz Azul in the final.

The realist in me says Portland's going to get waxed on April 30. Still, I'm really excited to see RSL come to town.

I think Warner could benefit for maybe a loan deal some place, but obviously Real are high on them since they haven't made a move. Sometimes the best thing is to stay in a good team and train with good players everyday and wait for your chance, he's just has to find his form a little bit and exploit an opportunity when it's given to him

Yeah, RSL is a very solid team, however, the MLS is really filled with parity. It's very hard to anticipate a team getting waxed. It's too bad that RSL didn't pull through. Warner played so well against Cruz Azul last season; I'm surprised he hasn't been able to get more minutes. But, that team is very deep...

Uh, wow.

Apparently they have fields with gridiron lines in Mexico too.

Choke holds only get a red if the guy passes out.

Javi Morales is good at soccer.

Monterrey 2-2 RSL, but Salt Lake is up on away goals.
