(MLSSoccer.com) What’s Wrong with the Sporting KC Defense? Really though, someone please tell me. Here is a breakdown of the nine goals they’ve conceded:

  • 7 came when SKC had numbers behind the ball and the defensive shape was set
  • The other 2 came on counters in transition
  • 7 came from a pass or cross from wide areas toward the box
  • 5 came when the opposing player making the pass or cross toward the goal area did not have pressure on him
  • 3 came when the ball made it through the front portion of the goal within reach of the first defender
  • 4 came in the play after an opposing midfielder could pick up his head without pressure
