For the Glory KC is back with the 35th episode of the show.

On this week’s episode, Sporting Kansas City have another up and down week. LAFC forward Denis Boaunga called them the hardest team they’d faced all year in a 1-1 draw and then they were obliterated in the first game against St. Louis City SC three days later. Sheena and I have plenty of thoughts on STL and few about LA as well.

The Kansas City Current also had a double game week with less success. They managed to lose twice against Racing Louisville and we’ve got some concerns, particularly about the defense. Plus, Sheena and I come up with who we’d trade to get a starting quality CB.

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

    • SKC get Crushed by St. Louis and Penso and the Schedule Makers – 4:37
    • Sporting KC draw LAFC – 30:48
    • KC Current lose to Louisville twice – 48:36
    • Digital Crawl – 1:05:05
