An exciting and disappointing match in Houston for the visiting Sporting Kansas City. They twice had the lead and twice gave up the equalizer late in each half. David Greenwald, Robert Rusert and Thad Bell talk about the draw with the Houston Dynamo and more. Our normal host was unavailable so the rest crew filled in without Cody.
Breakdown the game, the goals, and the substitutions. There was a lack of offense from anyone not named Gadi Kinda or Alan Pulido and a pair of defensive lapses in stoppage time that robbed Kansas City of a needed three points. Perhaps the biggest topic was a referee decision that did not affect the score. The fact that Ferreira escaped with a yellow after a big shove on Gadi Kinda is a topic. Can that call be defended?
Sporting KC’s odds to make the playoffs are on the rise. Will they be able to make it? It’s at 61% to make the playoffs per 538 and 52% to make round 1. The standings still look tough for Sporting KC with all the teams having games in hand.
Sporting KC designated player Alan Pulido has been hot since getting back into form. He kept the hot streak going with another two goals. A penalty but also a very nice combination with Kinda in the first half. It’s been debated before but does this streak mean Sporting KC should go all in to sign him? Can they sign him with possible competition from Mexico?
On Wednesday the annual Sporting KC Media Game will be the halftime entertainment. David is still jealous that he was not invited to the media game.
