KC Current

Do Two Wins Mean Sporting KC Have Righted the Ship?

We are back discussing the last week of soccer. There are two Sporting KC and one Kansas City Current games, Pulido and Mike Illig.

For the Glory KC is back with the 33rd episode of the show!

On this week’s episode, Sporting Kansas City have an up and down week. They were eliminated from the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup when their backups failed to defeat the Houston Dynamo. But they ended the week strong with their first home win of the season against Minnesota United in a blowout (that felt weird to type).

We also talked about the rumor that Alan Pulido could be sold to Chivas (Liga MX) and the article from Sam McDowell in the KC Star interviewing one of Sporting KC’s owners, Mike Illig. Plus, we discuss Peter Vermes’ comments to both the KC Cauldron and to the media after the game, including this doozy.

The Kansas City Current proved that KC soccer cannot have nice things when they proceeded to then lose at home against the San Diego Wave. Though they did break an attendance record, so that’s a plus at least.

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

    • Sporting KC crush Minnesota United! – 3:40
    • Sporting KC eliminated from the Open Cup – 39:54
    • Mike Illig Interview – 53:35 
    • Rumor: Chivas want to buy Alan Pulido – 1:01:13
    • KC Current lose to the San Diego Wave – 1:08:45
    • Digital Crawl – 1:26:37

Here is the Chicharito article that Sheena referenced.
