A Masterplan for Sporting KC Signings

Will an extra $200k in GAM make all the difference? Let’s lay out a plan for how that may shape the roster moves of 2024 for Sporting KC.

For the Glory KC is back with the 70th episode of the show!

Sporting Kansas City had a relatively active week, considering how slow the offseason has been. They played the final preseason game of leg one before coming to and from KC in the proceeding days. They’ll be back in Miami by the time you read this.

Outside of the preseason game itself, a 2-1 Nashville SC win, Peter Vermes gave updates on player performances, Khiry Shelton’s injury and more. Then there were the transactions. Sporting KC made a trade that could open the door for a future move and added Memo Rodriguez as depth. I lay out my theory how the next few weeks and then summer transfer window may play out. My masterplan if you will (that’s during segment two, timestamp below).

Then we switched gears to talk about Sporting KC’s youth development problem and its latest saga with Ramiz Hamouda leaving the SKC Academy without a contract and the team getting nothing for him.

We also briefly talked Leagues Cup news too.

The KC Current made a series of signings this week too (Mallory Weber, Regan Steigleder and Sophie Braun) as well as an extension for Lo LaBonta. Vlatko Andonovski also gave some training updates and let us know who is a full participant and who we’ll still have to wait on.

In the Digital Crawl, we touch on the following topics:

  • KC gets six (!) World Cup games.
  • Daniel Salloi is changing numbers again.
  • Several former KC Current players are on the move.
  • KU football at Children’s Mercy Park.
  • and Kelyn Rowe retires.

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

  • SKC Preseason Results and News – 5:13
  • SKC Make a Signing and Trade + My Masterplan – 12:25
  • Sad SKC Academy News – 24:59
  • Leagues Cup Opponents and Hosting – 36:35
  • KC Current Signings and News – 40:50
  • Digital Crawl – 48:50
