Matchday: 8-1-09

With the Fire and Real Salt Lake set to kick off in a little less than two hours, it's high time I get the Matchday post up, so here it is. 

I'll be posting the starting lineups for each side (along with any other random thoughts/observations) in the comments section later on so get ready for those.  Until then (and after then...) use this post as a running commentary of sorts for any thoughts you may have on the match.

    Word is that Conde aggravated his hamstring in the All Star Game and that Blanco hurt his left ankle while in Salt Lake. I saw Temo in the locker room about a half hour ago and he had quite the ice pack on the injury.

    If you haven't heard, the Fire defeated RSL 1-0 tonight. The game's only goal came in the 76th minute through Fire forward Patrick Nyarko. I'm about to start working on my match report for the site so I should have that up in an hour or so.
