Kansas City

(SKC YouTube) Peter Vermes sits down with Nate Bukaty to talk a little more about his contract that runs through 2023.

(810 WHB) Vermes also came onto The Program on Sports Radio 810 WHB to discuss his new contract.

(MLS YouTube) The #InstantReplay crew take a look at the controversy surrounding the goal against Atlanta United and the red card. Spoiler alert, Josef Martinez was offside and that Brad Guzan tackle was a red no matter how you look at it. Stop crying Atlanta fans. Your team is great and with 11 guys they may very well have ran, but they rightfully had 10. Boo hoo!

(My Own Twitter!) In shameless self-plug, I took a screen cap of Khiry Shelton’s Instagram story to show the damage done by that Guzan studs up challenge. OUCH!

(MLS YouTube) Here are your highlights if you somehow missed watching what is the BEST two teams in MLS. Record-wise at least.

(The Blue Testament) The 2018 MLS Salary information is out and in another shameless self-plug we’ve got that for you. A lot more coming on salaries in the coming days and weeks.

(Four Four Two) Wan Kuzain Wan Kamal, better known just as Kuzain, has a nice feature on him from Four Four Two upon his joining of Sporting Kansas City.

(Sporting KC) Wilson Harris who is on an SKC Academy contract with the Swope Park Rangers, has been called up to the United States U-20’s for a couple games against Honduras on May 17th and 19th. He debuted for the Rangers last weekend in the win over the OKC Energy FC.

(Sporting KC) Graham Smith who is on loan with the Swope Park Rangers, made his first USL Team of the Week. Then he promptly got benched for Brad Evans who gave up probably three of the Ranger’s four goals on Wednesday in Salt Lake.

(SKC Twitter) Retro Kit night on May 27th against the Columbus Crew. I just happen to be flying into a KC for that game. Yes please!

Around the World

(BBC) England legend (and the world’s oldest 32-year-old), Wayne Rooney appears to be headed to D.C. United for £12.5 million ($16.9 million!!!)

(St. Louis Cardinals) For those of you in St. Louis or willing to make a drive, the Cardinals are partnering with the St. Louis Ambush to offer a really sweet free jersey on “Soccer Night.” I don’t like the Cardinals, but this kit is very nice.

(Reddit) 19 different sites with combined Power Rankings. SKC are third though it appears data pre-dates the Sporting win over Atlanta.

(TheCup.US) Lots of updates on first round Lamar Hunt US Open Cup action.

(Chicago Tribune) The Chicago Fire are likely to be the second highest most attended team in MLS with the Chicago Cubs purchasing a USL franchise (third highest if you count the NWSL’s Red Stars).
