Shades of Blue Soccer Show: A Look Ahead

With a couple troubling performances on the field, we saw a youthful themed week for soccer in KC. So let us not look back, but to the brighter days ahead.

After two questionable performances, Sporting Kansas City has a tough match-up with the LA Galaxy on Saturday. We open the show with the big question...

Are you worried?

They haven’t exactly inspired confidence and the four of us had a mixed bag of responses. So rather than look back at last week, we chose to look ahead. The future is bright!

The club signed Tyler Freeman this week and we discussed what we learned from the press conference, as well as speaking with the club and academy staff. They are very high on the Shawnee, KS native. But if he is that good, should we hope he leaves for Europe?

MLS released the 22 Under 22 list this week and included Jaylin Lindsey. Gianluca Busio just missed the cut but it is a really exciting list for the future of the league.

We were also looking ahead to this weekend’s match against a team that is dangerous for more reasons than Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Bob says the battle to watch is in the midfield, where Sporting KC could have an advantage.

During ExtraTime we talked about the Shades of Blue team’s success in the Cauldron FootGolf Tournament over the weekend. As well as hanging out with Jimmy Conrad & Ilie Sanchez.
