MLS: MLS All-Star-MLS WORKS Legacy Project Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

When Sporting Kansas City goes up against the Houston Dynamo, it is always a fun time. Cody, Aly, and Bob got together to discuss Saturday’s rivalry showdown in Texas.

Graham Zusi & Ilie Sanchez represented KC in the All Star game this week and turned in quality shifts. Wan Kuzain & Jaylin Lindsey were also in on the action in the MLS Homegrown game.

Looking ahead to Saturday, Roger Espinoza is not available due to yellow card accumulation and Johnny Russell looks to be out with an injury. Those absences are in addition to Jimmy Medranda, Khiry Shelton, and (of course) Brad Evans.

We discuss what the lineup will look like in Houston, and the individual battles to keep an eye on. Alberth Elis has Bob very worried.

With the transfer window closing on Wednesday, we talk about the rumored center-back signing and if there is time to bring in the elusive striker as well.
