Sporting Kansas City came into this DC United game looking extremely tired. They had games against Toronto (won 4-1) and in Nicaragua against Real Esteli (draw 1-1) in Champions League play. DC also had Champions League play but they were in DC and played against a weaker team so they weren’t worried about playing the […]
Sporting KC had an unbeaten streak going as far back as May 31. We all knew it would eventually end at some point and it would end after eight games in one of the most disheartening ways.
When Sporting Kansas City went up north of the border into Canada to face Toronto FC, SKC hadn’t lost an away game since May 31. That was also their last regular season loss. In what’s their “tough stretch” of the season due to missing Graham Zusi and Matt Besler to the World Cup and all […]
The month of May proved to be a horribly difficult month for Sporting Kansas City. Granted, in the first third of the month, SKC won their games against Columbus and Montreal but then things took a tremendous left turn.
Before this past Sunday’s game against the Columbus Crew, Sporting Kansas City celebrated as they received their rings from the MLS Cup championship last year. The rings look incredibly nice and I can’t be any happier for everyone with the organization. Those rings are more than just gold and diamonds. Those rings symbolize everything that […]
Well, just like Murphy’s Law, what could go wrong did go wrong for Sporting Kansas City this past weekend in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Sporting KC has seemed to struggle in New England. Except for a 1-0 win in 2012, SKC hadn’t won in New England since 2008. So while the experts predicted a Sporting victory or […]
Since the last post, Sporting Kansas City has had some up’s and down’s but those down’s seem to be as deep as the Mariana Trench. After having a 1-0 lead against Cruz Azul in the CONCACAF Champions League, Sporting KC was, for lack of a better term, embarrassed in Mexico losing 5-1. I’m not going […]
Sporting Kansas City had the high of beating the Liga MX leaders Cruz Azul in CONCACAF Champions League the previous Wednesday. In between the two legs, Sporting had their home regular season opener against FC Dallas. Knowing the majority of the resources would be spent on Cruz Azul, no one was really expecting the SKC […]
Sporting Kansas City opened their season as defending MLS Champions. The team who were perennial losers in almost all facets both on the field and in the front office is now transformed into the winners you see today. The team who was just looking for respect now has that and will have the distinction of […]
Before composing this seasons preview, I decided to go back and read what I had written last year. It showed that a lot has changed for Sporting Kansas City and its fans over a calendar year. Kansas City hosted the MLS All-Star Game and ended the season by hosting and winning the 2013 MLS Cup. […]
Sporting Kansas City and Real Salt Lake will match up in the 18th MLS Cup Final on Saturday December 7 at 4 PM on ESPN along with a one hour pregame show. I have to admit, ESPN is really marketing the game to the general public and not just soccer fans. I’ve been seeing commercials […]
When the dust settled after the New England Revolution series, Sporting Kansas City found themselves with their familiar foe in the playoffs. Yes, the Houston Dynamo had been Sporting’s kryptonite. In the past two seasons, Sporting was eliminated by Houston in Kansas City as they proceeded to the MLS Cup Final. Before the Eastern Conference […]
Sporting Kansas City began the playoffs falling just short at winning the Supporters Shield. And because the Houston Dynamo defeated the Montreal Impact, Houston played the New York Red Bulls while Sporting played the New England Revolution. To many Sporting fans, New England posed the least threatening option to move on to the Eastern Conference […]
I’m going to be honest, I didn’t expect Sporting Kansas City to be in a position to obtain the Supporters Shield a couple months ago. A couple months ago, teams like the Montreal Impact, Seattle Sounders and New York Red Bulls were in the drivers seat either by leading the conference or having multiple games […]
In what was supposed to be a formality against a team who never won a CONCACAF Champions League game and a team Sporting Kansas City beat in Nicaragua with a weaker lineup, Sporting drew Real Esteli 1-1 at Sporting Park. The draw still means Sporting controls their destiny in the group stage but they now […]
