What does Sporting KC do with Khiry Shelton?

Sporting KC lose and we try to decide who to blame. Themselves? The refs? Khiry Shelton? Peter Vermes? Plus, USMNT and KC Current content!

For the Glory KC is back with the 39th episode of the show!

On this week’s episode, Sporting Kansas City let a golden opportunity slip through their fingers to beat a depleted Los Angeles FC team at Children’s Mercy Park. There is plenty of blame to go around, between the referees, Khiry Shelton, missed chances and ultimately Peter Vermes.

Not sticking just to Kansas City soccer, we discuss the United States Men’s National Team and their epic CONCACAF Nations League wins over the last week. First defeating Mexico 3-0 in a wild, at times horrifically handled, game. Then, with another shutout, but this time over Canada 2-0 to claim the trophy in a much more competitive game.

Finally, the Kansas City Current gives us highs and lows from the week with a big 4-0 pounding of the Chicago Red Stars in the NWSL Challenge Cup before blowing a 2-0 lead against the USWNT filled Washington Spirit who come all the way back to win 2-3 in Debinha’s World Cup sendoff game. I have to ask the question, is it time to blow it all up in the front office and coaching staff? Plus, a rumor came out (apparently via an agent, though the Tweets don’t make that clear) that multiple KC Current players have asked for trades.

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

    • Sporting KC collapse versus LAFC – 4:12
    • USMNT – Berhalter hired again – 34:39
    • And the US Stop Mexico – 40:14
    • The KC Current Win and Lose – 56:45
    • Digital Crawl – 1:04:56
