MLS: San Jose Earthquakes at Sporting KC
....These guys...
Denny Medley-USA TODAY Sports

MLS Standings | MLS Power Rankings

Well.... we’re undefeated right? Why am I not all that excited about it? But the five points from three games has SKC in 5th place (9th in Supporter’s Shield). MLS has KC at #8 in the power rankings (up from 9).

Benny is losing Goal of the Week vote

Look... the Josef Martinez goal might be more impressive... but this is Kansas City and we own online voting. So get your s*** together.

Melia probably has no chance to win Save of the Week

But it saved the win for SKC without a doubt. So give Timmy a vote. Because “He saves the goals.”

Both Melia & Feilhaber both earn Team of the Week honors

Feilhaber made MLSSoccer.com’s list and Goal.com recognized Melia as his shutout streak came to an end. And it came to an end well after I had already written a recap about three straight shutouts, but I digress.

Max & Herc Podcast - Benny Feilhaber interview

Benny gave a really good interview and went in depth about how he thinks the January camp can be unfair for certain players - and certain types of players. Definitely worth a listen. That podcast is still figuring it out, but it isn’t bad.

A pair of Rangers called into Canadian U23s

Amer Didic and Mark Anthony Gonzalez will represent Canada as they take on Uzbekistan & Qatar later this week. Well deserved. These are two of the most promising guys with SPR.

Party at the Zoo on Saturday!

Swope Park wrapped up preseason (check out the stats) and are preparing this week for the home opener against none other than Jimmy Nielsen and OKC Energy FC. You will be able to catch me there acting a fool.

Soony’s weird goal scoring history

Copa America coming to USA in 2020

After a wonderfully successful 2016 tournament, it looks like we are going to get this competition every four years! This is great for the sport in America and it is a great chance for the USMNT to test themselves against the best.

Schweinsteiger to MLS.... but now what?

I like to think this is good for the league but I’m not entirely sure how much he has left. I think I would prefer Dax and Juninho over him right now, but maybe they can all play. And I’m also not even sure that he would sell all that many tickets either. But time will tell!

RSL fire head coach Jeff Cassar three matches into season

It seems a bit early to me. I think there are a lot of questions with that team and they aren’t all about the head coach.

Wondo gets called into National Team

You guys can’t see me right now, but I am eye rolling harder than anyone has ever eye rolled.

Resuscitated rumors of Andres Iniesta to NYCFC

His contract expires next summer and he has apparently turned down a big money move to China. NYCFC and Iniesta have been linked in the past.

I leave you with 15 year old SKC academy kid Gianluca Busio

This kid is in the US Youth ranks and is really impressive:
