MLS: Sporting KC at Real Salt Lake Jeff Swinger-USA TODAY Sports

Ten matches to go.

Things are looking good for Sporting Kansas City at the moment but this team has a terrible track record in finishing the regular season. Cody, Thad, and Bob got in the studio to discuss what it will take for SKC to bring a postseason match back to Children’s Mercy Park.

Diego Rubio is in top form right now and receiving tons of praise around the league. The Chilean has given Peter Vermes no choice but to start him once again this weekend. No doubt the arrival of Krisztian Nemeth has played a role in lighting a fire underneath Rubio.

We’ve got audio from PV as he looks at the final stretch of the season. He sounds confident and pleased with where his team is at. Bob figures Sporting will need 15 points to secure 2nd place, and possibly eight for 4th place. Will that be enough? Can this team take that many points from a tough schedule?

Minnesota United are paying a visit on Saturday and it looks like three points, on paper. But we know how this team operates. Three points at Atlanta is no problem, but the Rapids give them fits.

There is also a good discussion about Brad Evans and his impact (or lack there of) on the club this year.

Extra-Time topics include the recent release of Amazon’s All or Nothing: Manchester City, as well as a discussion about the first all-female sports broadcast crew over the weekend in MLS.
