CHARLESTON CUP UPDATE

13 03 2010

Well, one week down, one to go. The weather has been great except for a few showers.  The trainings have been great and guys are gearing up to get at it. The camps have been good and the facilities are great and very convenient.

A lot of our RSL guys look real sharp out there on the pitch. Our defense looks as strong as ever, and with the experience from last year, I see this being one of our straights.

The midfield is solid with Becks, Will, Javi, Andy, and Ned who I think looks very sharp and continues to impress me with his work rate.

Up front is Robbie and Fabian, who can be dangerous every game, but it’s Alvaro who I’m excited to see match up with one of these guys. Seeing what he’s done with Costa Rica is very impressive, and it’s good to see first hand that he’s a very talented striker with a good touch and eye for the back of the net.  But what stands out is his willingness to defend, and that’s what makes us a good team.
Tonight is our 1st game against DC United in the Charleston Cup, followed by Toronto vs. Charleston Battery. Three more games to get on the same page while we get comfortable again and get our form back together.

As we saw last year, it’s not how you start, it’s how you end.  We want to start off well though this year, get more points on the road, continue to be a threat up top, and remain solid on defense.

Tonight, it starts with everyone finally back together.

Game looked pretty good tonight, for preseason. Had really solid possession until the last half of the second half. Oh well, still hoping that you guys can get the Carolina cup again this year. Go Real!
