Blue Links: Weekly Honors for Gutierrez

A brace from Felipe Gutierrez on Saturday earns him some weekly honors. MLS & Liga MX announce Campeones Cup

MLS: Sporting KC at Chicago Fire Kamil Krzaczynski-USA TODAY Sports

Your quick link update for Tuesday!

Sporting KC

( Felipe Gutierrez named to MLS Team of the Week - DUH

( And the beautiful match winner is up for goal of the week. Chicago’s first goal probably deserves 2nd place. But nothing will beat that team goal with a nutmeg and dummy to boot.

( US Soccer announced the final 2018 National Soccer Hall of Fame Player Ballot today. Sporting KC has SIX former players on the list. Christ Klein, Josh Wolff, Eddie Johnson, Kevin Hartman, Bobby Convey, and Mike Burns.

( GREEN BEER in the South Stand on Saturday! St. Pat’s Package available for $42.

Around MLS

( Campeones Cup - MLS & Liga MX team up to create a new competition to fuel the rivalry between the leagues as well as strengthen the joint World Cup bid (hopefully).

I know it is prime time vs early mornings, but this is still something to note. Looks like 576k tuned in for ATLvDC on Saturday.

( Top Skills & Tricks from the week. Chicago is absolutely everywhere in the video. Hadn’t realized how fancy they looked while losing.

( Instant Replay didn’t cover anything about CHIvSKC but its always fun to see what shenanigans MLS referees got themselves into around the league.

( After seeing Ike Opara’s injury troubles, SKC fans will feel for Minnesota United’s Kevin Molino who has torn his ACL and will miss the rest of the season. Tough break for MNUFC.

( MLS teams have the upper hand in the CCL going into the 2nd legs this week. NYRB take a 2-0 lead home to New Jersey against Tijuana at 7pm and Toronto FC travel to Tigres with a 2-1 advantage for a 9pm kickoff.
