With a season to forget behind them, Sporting have had a very busy off season so far. All this change is scary and confusing, trust me I know. This is what the last couple weeks have been for me:
But after a season below the club's high standards (and with the addition of 2 new MLS teams), change was to be expected. To sum up:
Aurelien Collin was traded to Orlando City. Very sad to see him go, but SKC was just unable to meet his contract demands.
CJ Sapong to Philly for allocation money. Good luck CJ! Raaaa
Sal Zizzo was the lone victim of the expansion draft. He was selected by NYCFC in the 9th round.
Orlando City completed the trade for Collin by sending SKC the 6th overall selection in the expansion draft, defender Jalil Anibaba.
On his way over from the Columbus Crew is Bernardo Anor. I am very eager to see what Vermes can do with him. He is quite talented:
Not even the announcers could survive the #SportingBlueWedding. Sadly, Callum Williams will not be returning to the broadcast next season.
Although nothing official from the club yet, Soony Saad looks to be headed for the Thailand Premier League.
Robb did give us some good news in his normal odd fashion. Although the "agents r still doing stuff" he announced on Twitter that Dom Dwyer is in for at least 3 more years.
Things are still sure to be busy as Sporting look to get back to the top of MLS. Yes it is scary but remember...this is one KC team you can be confident will make the right decisions!
Jozy Altidore continued his struggles yesterday for Sunderland with this terrible miss in front of goal. Several other "American Exports" were in action yesterday as well.
Things are going to get very interesting with Frank Lampard and NYCFC. Lampard scored his 6th goal on loan to Manchester City yesterday and has become integral to the club. Situations like this are sure to happen in the future, so this decision here will set the tone moving forward.
MLS Cup was watched by nearly 2 million people finishing off a record setting post season. The Galaxy are the first to 5! The only reason its noteworthy is it makes me wonder what they will do when there isn't enough room for stars above crests anymore.
