Explaining Sporting KC’s Poor Results from the Week

Sporting KC have a draw and a loss this week, but at least someone won. Team Indigo won the media game, but there is a lot wrong with SKC needing discussing.

For the Glory KC is back with the 43rd episode of the show.

On this week’s episode, Sporting Kansas City continue their bad run of form for their three games in eight days when they managed only two points over three games. Sheena and I head through the week chronologically working through the Sporting KC/Real Salt Lake game, the halftime media game (I won!) and then finally to the loss against Austin FC on the weekend.

Not to be left out was the announcement that Inter Miami CF have finally signed Lionel Messi officially. His debut is set for Friday. We have some background information on the move and Sheena has some thoughts on the Messi overload.

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

  • Sporting KC blow another lead (this time against RSL) – 3:21
  • Chad’s team won the Media Game – 29:46
  • Then Sporting KC lost to Austin – 37:18
  • Messi is officially coming to Miami – 54:51
  • Digital Crawl – 1:06:41

Upcoming Games

  • USWNT vs. Vietnam (World Cup) – Fri, July 21st – 8:00 PM
