The stories just keep coming. Let’s get right to it.

Sporting KC

(810 WHB) The Sporting KC Show this week has Diego Rubio on as a guest as he joins Nate Bukaty. Rubio has a bit of a cold. Is that before or after the game winner?

(Sporting KC) Another excellent look Behind the Shield of the #roaddron

(PRO Referees) Baldomero Toledo is still somehow still employed as a referee and will be in the center circle for D.C. United versus SKC.

(USL Soccer) Kharlton Belmar scored two more goals and made the USL Team of the Week again. Could first team minutes be on the horizon?

(USL Soccer) The Swope Park Rangers climbed to 6th in the USL Power Rankings (of 33 teams). They are third highest in the West behind Phoenix Rising and Real Monarchs.

(MLS Soccer) Instant Replay this week ends with three #COLvSKC highlights. Did Edgar Castillo handle the ball on the first goal? Ike Opara keeps the attacker on for the second. And did the Colorado Rapids deserve a second yellow from that high boot to Felipe Gutierrez.

(MLS Soccer) Diego Rubio is up for MLS Goal of the Week. He really needs your help in the voting.

(Podcasts) The Talkin’ Touches guys have two podcasts that are SKC focused this week. One on the draw against the Rapids and Andy interviews assistant Kerry Zavagnin.

(The Victory Project) I wonder if Graham Zusi can even still do yoga without his hair. I think that’s in question, but it’s a good cause.

Around the League and World

(Goal) The United States picked up a 1-0 win over Miguel Almiron’s Paraguay National Team. Check out the highlights.

(MLS Soccer) Zlatan against LAFC this weekend? Initial reports had him debuting against Sporting Kansas City. I wouldn’t mind if that didn’t happen with our leaky defense.

(MLS Soccer) LAFC sign their third Designated Player, Andre Horta. He’s a 21-year-old midfielder from Benfica. In other news, somehow Minnesota United still have no DPs as they continue into their second season (though that could end soon).
