    Rubio Rubin is a bicycle-kicking steal of a deal, and Real Monarchs takeover with Landon Southwick

    Rubio Rubin is a bicycle-kicking steal of a deal, and Real Monarchs takeover with Landon Southwick

    Don't adjust that dial; Salt City FC is back in an all-Jake free episode. Landon Southwick, the longtime Voice of Real Monarchs SLC, joins Sean to talk about RSL's second division side ahead of the club's home opener Friday night against LA Galaxy II. Who is the club? What is the club? Why is the club? A lot has changed in the offseason, and we'll try to get you up to speed in an hour or less.

    Also, the MLS Players' Association dropped the annual salary dump. Some guys are making a lot of money. Others are bargain-hunting steals: where else by RSL can you get a starting goalkeeper who is on the short list for the U.S. national team at under $90,000 per year? We don't expect David Ochoa to last long at that price, but enjoy it now while you can.

    Real Salt Lake opens 2021 season with win in 'Loony Land,' and David Ochoa plays the role of villain

    Real Salt Lake opens 2021 season with win in 'Loony Land,' and David Ochoa plays the role of villain

    Is RSL goalkeeper David Ochoa the "biggest villain since Steven Lenhart"? Who knows, but we're all for it. The 20-year-old goalkeeper helped Real Salt Lake to a 2-1 win at Minnesota United FC in their season opener — but should we be talking more about a Minnesota side that is 0-2 with 6 goals-against and just 1 goal-for, instead of coach Adrian Heath's exception to Ochoa kicking a ball into the stands? 

    The NCAA women's soccer tournament opened this week, and Utah Valley made history with a 1-0 win over Memphis. Then the guys turn west toward the LA Galaxy and the hot start of five goal-scorer Javier "Chicharito" Hernandez.

    Attention then turned to the news du jour in the soccer world at-large with the proposed "Super League" being announced that failing in a matter of days. Sean and Jake decided to create their own hypothetical North American Super League (NASL - copyright pending) and picked their 10-team league. (17:24)

    Finally, Sean and Jake talked about the breaking news of RSL legend Nick Rimando returning to the club umbrella as goalkeepers coach for the RSL Academy as well as serving as an official club ambassador before previewing the season-opening match for the Claret-and-Cobalt as they head to Minneapolis to take on Minnesota United FC Saturday evening.

    Kyle Beckerman hired at UVU & MLS 2021 Week 1 preview

    Sean Walker and Jake Hatch are back to begin the 2021 Major League Soccer campaign with an all-new edition of Salt City FC. In their 2021 debut episode they began with the big news of former Real Salt Lake captain Kyle Beckerman taking the reins of the Utah Valley University men's soccer program as the second head coach all-time for the Wolverines. The guys shared their takes on the hire, what they think the learning curve will be like for Beckerman and what to expect from UVU moving forward now. 

    Audio from Beckerman's introductory press conference was the feature of the second segment of the podcast as he laid out his vision for his new gig leading the Wolverines and why he was so interested in pursuing the position after hanging up his boots as a player this past offseason. (17:14)

    Finally, Sean and Jake got listeners ready for the first weekend of MLS action as the 2021 season begins later this week, albeit with Real Salt Lake on a bye. The guys shared the matches that they are most interested in on the opening round of action and shred their predictions for the weekend ahead. (35:42)
