For the Glory KC is back with the 50th episode of the show!

On this week’s episode, Sporting Kansas City come back down to earth. After two straight wins at home, they hit the road against a depleted Inter Miami team and slip up dropping all three points. We talk through the key moments, the “controversial” game winning goal and a whole lot more. We also take some of your listener questions and sprinkle them throughout the episode.

Beyond just the game, we get into the controversy surrounding Gadi Kinda, the Israeli National Team and Peter Vermes. We also talk about the impending contract end for Kinda and if this will have any impact on him re-signing with the team.

The KC Current may have finally done it and given us nothing to care about until the offseason. They had a chance to get a trophy in the first and last ‘real’ NWSL Challenge Cup, but they gave it away at the end against the North Carolina Courage (the eventual champions against Racing Louisville). The season isn’t technically over, but it basically is.

Then of course we discuss news in the Digital Crawl, which includes some good news from the Spanish National Team, controversy in MLS around Bruce Arena suddenly resigning, the United States Men’s National Team and more! (I used the word controversy three times…)

Here is a quick rundown of topics (and approximate start times):

  • Sporting KC blow it in Miami – 2:48
  • Gadi Kinda/Israel Controversy – 27:43
  • KC Current Dumped out of Challenge Cup – 41:04
  • Digital Crawl – 54:16
