It’s been a rough year for Kansas City soccer. Sporting KC started off with a historically bad start and the KC Current followed up a great run last year with a hugely disappointing season. All that suffering came together this weekend.
SKC were embarrassed (again) in St. Louis. The Current lost again, virtually eliminating them from the postseason. To cap off the weekend, Benny Feilhaber’s SKCII side lost in the first round of the MLS Next Pro playoffs after choosing their own opponent.
On this episode of Shades of Blue, we try to find out what went wrong in the 70th minute of the 4-1 loss to St. Louis City SC. We’ve got more strange decisions from referees, Jake Davis doing Jake Davis things, and attempt to locate Alan Pulido, who is thought to be somewhere in the midfield region. Plus we look at what went wrong for the KC Current and SKCII.
We’ll be back on Wednesday with another episode on all the midweek MLS action and previewing this weekend’s match at Real Salt Lake.
