Nepotism, a Big Win and a Concerning Draw

Lots to discuss from Sporting KC’s big win, a bit less on the KC Current’s disappointing draw and our thoughts on Spain and the fallout over Jenni Hermoso’s unwanted kiss from Luis Rubiales.

For the Glory KC is back with the 48th episode of the show! (Creeping towards 50, should we do something special?)

Sporting Kansas City are back in action after a long break and things (mostly) went very well in a 3-0 win over then fifth place San Jose, minus a potential injury picked up by Johnny Russell (two updates on him, one early, one in the Digital Crawl).

This week’s podcast was recorded in two “halves” (which is fitting because I guested on Episode 19 of another podcast, the Two Halves Soccer Podcast, this week if you want to go even deeper on Sporting KC). The first half, I continue For the Glory KC’s nepotism tradition and bring on my little brother after he and I went to the SKC/San Jose Earthquakes game Saturday. We talk about our two unique angles of the game (press box versus the East Stand) and also discuss our first SKC injury update in over five weeks.

Then, Sheena returns for the KC Current and Digital Crawl portion (with a little of our usual nonsense mixed in!

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

  • SKC crush San Jose – 2:02
  • Sporting KC Injury Updates – 31:51
  • KC Current draw at Houston – 40:44
  • Digital Crawl – 49:24

Upcoming Games

  • Sporting KC vs. St. Louis City SC – Saturday, Sept 2 @ 7:30 PM
