Real Salt Lake at San Jose Earthquakes: Your Running Commentary


The San Jose Earthquakes are at home tonight, taking on Real Salt Lake in an important Western Conference clash with major playoff implications.

The Earthquakes, currently riding a nine-game unbeaten streak, will look to keep RSL’s road woes going with a win tonight. Real Salt Lake has just one win on the road all season, but will need a point or three tonight to avoide being passed in the standings by the red-hot Quakes.

If you are watching the match, please feel free to share your thoughts, opinions and some play-by-play in the comments section below.

Enjoy the match.


  1. Number 84 is for his son’s birth.

    I am not sure how the officating was horrible? RSL plays physical, and got 3 yellow cards, sounds like sour grapes. If any team has a right to complain about bad calls it is RSL.

  2. That was the worst officiated game I have ever had the misfortune of witnessing. It should be preserved and studied in it;s astonishing awfulness. Even by MLS standards, a horrible performance.

  3. We RSL fans generally say that he chose 84 because it’s the year he graduated from high school…making him 42 years old. Sounds about right.

  4. I agree about the font on the uniforms. When I went to the opening game against the fire I thought RSL had three number 11’s. It turns out it was really three numbers, 17, 11, and 77. They just all look the same.

  5. Why on Earth is Mathis wearing number 84? Is there a story behind it?

    One more uniform note: adidas needs to do something about the name and number font next year. It’s pretty bad right now.

  6. The game’s on HDNet, 60 mins in as I type this.

    Morales just scored on a beautiful free kick to put RSL up 3-2.

    The Quakes are rocking some putrid uniforms. Bad color combination: black shirts with blue shorts. Gah. RSL looks classy in their white shirts and shorts.

    Will Johnson started and is playing somewhat well. I’m mainly watching for him, really.
