PawedCast Episode 20: Real Salt Lake Review / FC Dallas Preview & Louisville City FC Update

We wrap up a frustrating-yet-satisfying 10-man draw at Rio Tinto Stadium against RSL and look ahead to FC Dallas on Saturday with the help of Ben Lyon of Big D Soccer. Plus, our Louisville City FC correspondent Jeff Milby checks in from Kentucky to give us the latest.

Kevin Mercer joins me to recap the 10-man draw at Real Salt Lake last week. Neither of us are completely (or at all) convinced that Kaká deserved to be sent off for what he did at Rio Tinto Stadium, but we're both glad the lads rallied around their captain and came home with another hard-fought road point. We discuss the Brazilian's red card at length, as well as the shoddy record of that night's referee, Sorin Stoica.

We then welcome Ben Lyon from Big D Soccer to the show. Ben gives us the 411 on our opponents Saturday night at the Citrus Bowl, FC Dallas. He tells us who's away on international duty, what we can expect from the boys from Big D, and even how to stop Fabian Castillo (sort of).

But there are two guests this week! Our own Louisville City FC correspondent Jeff Milby joins us to talk about last week's big USL announcement by Orlando City and what the reaction was in the Derby City. We also dicuss OCSC draft pick Sidney Rivera's progress, as well as Louisville's designs on MLS someday.

Kevin and I then wrap up our Salt Lake discussion with our Man of the Match (it was unanimous), preview Dallas and give you our never entertaining, why-do-we-even-do-it match predictions!

Here's the rundown:

0:25- Me and Kevin are happy with a point but sad we won't see Kaká on the weekend.

13:11- Ben Lyon knows a lot about FC Dallas and is willing to share that info. Also we hope his match prediction is exactly wrong.

30:53- Milbz is in the house! Jeff gives us the latest from Louisville and wants Sidney Rivera to hustle.

47:13- Final RSL thoughts, our MotM, a quick peek at Dallas, and predictions!
