On this week’s episode, we do a little time travel and record over two days with these midweek games messing with our regular schedule (who are we kidding, we love more soccer). The first chunk is about Sporting KC and was recorded on Tuesday night. We preview the matchup with the New England Revolution (if you prefer to read your previews, I’ve got you covered there too). Plus, we talk Ben Sweat signing with the Revs. Then, since we forgot to ask you all mailbag questions, we ask each other questions!
Then we transition to the shocking news of the week and discuss the firing of Kansas City Current head coach Matt Potter after an 0-3-0 start to the season. Is there more to the firing? Plus, we talk about the win over the Houston Dash by the Current and give the world’s quickest preview to the Orlando Pride game on Sunday.
Here is a quick rundown of topics (and approximate start times):
- We preview Sporting KC vs. New England – 2:28
- Q&A- 18:30
- Matt Potter Fired – 29:13
- KC Current beat Houston – 35:24
