For the Glory KC is back with the 60th episode of the show!

On this week’s episode, Sporting Kansas City are about to play the Houston Dynamo and we do an early preview for the game. We break down the players to watch for Houston and the form of both teams. Sporting KC struggle on the road in the playoffs in particular and Houston are quite stout at home both this season and historically. Could that spell disaster for Kansas City’s season?

We give an update on Dany Rosero and his availability for Sunday.

Then we turn our attention to the KC Current who made a bevy of roster moves this week, including the trading of star midfielder Alex Loera. Sheena and I go down the roster and decide which nine players to protect and what a better strategy would be to deal with possibly losing two players to the Utah Royals in the expansion draft.

Then we get to the Digital Crawl. We breeze through the following topics:

  • United States vs. Trinidad and Tobago
  • The U-17 World Cup
  • Pulskamp and Busio getting a USA U-23 call up
  • Phoenix Rising win the USL Championship
  • Emma Hayes is officially announced as the new USWNT coach
  • and a Messi update, including a date to face Ronaldo

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

  • Houston/Sporting KC Playoff Preview – 4:08
  • Dany Rosero Update – 30:42
  • Alex Loera Traded – 32:47
  • Lots of KC Current Transactions – 42:03
  • Current Expansion Draft Protection Lists – 47:54
  • Digital Crawl – 1:04:53
