It’s not much fun when you aren’t winning. Let’s give ours and Vermes’ assessments of the Sporting KC season 10 games in.

For the Glory KC is back with the 82nd episode of the show!

Sporting Kansas City are officially 10 games into their 2024 season and it’s a benchmark that Peter Vermes likes to focus on. The team is 2-3-5 (11 points) and sitting in 10th place. It’s better than last season, but that’s an incredibly low bar to clear.

The KC Soccer Journal asked Peter Vermes how he felt about where the team was, and his answers left something to be desired. My colleague Jimmy Mack Tweeted out the quotes.

Sheena and I weigh in the quotes, the play against Minnesota United FC in the 2-1 loss and the rumor from Taylor Twellman that signings are coming in the summer and where we’d like to see those signings. Oh, and we have to talk about this meme-worthy image and subsequent work from Offside Modeling that confirmed it was onside.

The Kansas City Current thankfully brought us happier things to talk about in their 3-1 come-from-behind win over Angel City FC in Los Angeles on Friday night. Plus, we went to game one of the KC Comets attempt to win the Ron Newman Cup in the MASL Final on Sunday afternoon. Game two is Tuesday.

In the Digital Crawl, we hit a few topics, including:

  • The new KC Current development around the stadium
  • Dom Dwyer signing with the Oakland Roots
  • The Mayor of Indianapolis Talking MLS Expansion
  • Former KC player signings in MLS and the USL Super League

  • Sporting KC lose to MIN – 8:28
