Kansas City is the Soccer Capital of America

Sporting Kansas City claim their stake as the Soccer Capital (just to eat at the St. Louis fans) with their win. Plus, KC Current and more!

For the Glory KC is back with the 49th episode of the show!

I have never once cared about this silly Soccer Capital nonsense, but because it eats at St. Louis, much like Sporting Kansas City, I’m going to lean in hard when these games are played each time. We talk about Round Two in this budding rivalry, and Sporting KC’s big win. The atmosphere was amazing (full credit to the road fans), the game was exciting, and the refereeing definitely happened. Peter Vermes said he thought Alan Chapman officiated the game well. We’ll have to agree to disagree on that one Peter. I’ll cite my sources.

It’s not all SKC as the KC Current get some (negative) attention. Their season isn’t officially over, but the loss against Angel City all but assures it is. There is still plenty to play for in this week’s Challenge Cup semifinal and (hopefully) final. But after that, it’s time to pick a permanent coach. We discuss.

Plus, we dig deeper on the Jenni Hermoso/Luis Rubiales controversy, talk international windows (including Miami’s brutal list of absences) and much more!
