MLS: Real Salt Lake at Sporting KC Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports

MLS Standings | MLS Power Rankings

Sporting is sitting in 2nd place in the west, below Portland. But KC has a better PPG. Dallas of course leads that category as they are level on points with one less match played. No change in the Power Rankings but they are being called contenders at #4.

This is a thing we have to do now. Match will be on FSKC+ tonight. So, good luck with Fox Sports Go.

Sporting KC vs NYRB: By the Numbers

The boys are putting a 13 home match unbeaten run to the test tonight. Last year when SKC beat NY at their place, it ended a record breaking run at home for them. Let’s hope they don’t spoil it for us as well.

Lindsey continues to progress very well and if not for such a stellar starting defense for SKC, Erik Palmer-Brown would be getting more minutes. But both are great prospects for the future of the team.

Vlatko’s latest challenge

After preparing for the return of Amy Rodriguez for months, it was just the first match she went down with a season ending injury.

Armchair Analyst: What your team needs as the transfer window closes

Doyle seems pretty positive SKC is going to sell Palmer-Brown after the U-20 World Cup. That would then leave us pretty thin at CB. He points out that we have a plethora of right-backs and MLS teams need right-backs. This is probably a smart move IF we do get rid of EPB.
