KC Current

KC Current Win, Vlatko Out, All the Cups and a Mailbag

No Sporting KC game, no problem. Lots of topics in this wide-ranging episode about the KC Current, Vlatko, Messi, the World and Leagues Cups.

For the Glory KC is back with the 47th episode of the show! (Creeping towards 50, should we do something special?)

On this week’s episode, the KC Current headline with SKC taking yet another week off (against their will after being eliminated from the Leagues Cup). Sheena and I discuss the big win from Kansas City against the OL Reign at Children’s Mercy Park. Including some behind the scenes from the post-game presser with Caroline Sjoblom, Cece Kizer and AD Franch.

Sporting Kansas City don’t get entirely left out of the show as our mini-mailbag gets a couple Sporting KC specific questions and they just sneak their way into the conversation in other places.

We also go through the world of soccer to talk Spain’s World Cup win, the Leagues Cup (I guess Messi was inevitable), Vlatko being out as the United States’ Women’s National Team coach (and in as the Current coach maybe?), that silly NWSL fine and much more! Despite having so little to talk about, we may have talked longer than ever. We’re chatty, what can we say?

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

  • KC Current win! – 4:56
  • Vlatko out as US coach – 31:54
  • A silly fine by the NWSL – 39:12
  • World Cup – 46:24
  • Leagues Cup – 54:27
  • Another Mini Mailbag – 1:05:34
  • Digital Crawl – 1:17:12
