Welcome to From The Upper Deck, my blog about RSL and soccer in general. I have a lot of passion for the beautiful game. I am just a fan that likes to sit in the upper deck and take it all in.

With the 3rd most red cards among referees this year, will we see another red tonight?   Guzman is still fairly new to the league, in his 3rd year, and has not been a Center Official in a MLS playoff match.

Is this a “Trap game” as Brian Dunseth thinks?  I don’t really see it that way.  With an earlier loss this season to DC United and the CCL Final loss at the Riot should give RSL extra motivation to win the match and hoist another piece of hardware.
