MLS: Sporting KC at San Jose Earthquakes Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

The crew was finally back at it again on Wednesday night after a couple weeks off. Cody, Aly, & Bob broke in the studio and looked ahead to the final five matches of the season. Is first place within their grasp? What is the best lineup to get them there? So much to discuss!

Three at home. Two away. Every single point will make waves in the Western Conference playoff race and each remaining opponent is battling for their spot.

This is going to be fun.

The show covers each match and gives you an idea of what it will take from SKC to get that playoff game at Children’s Mercy Park. Taking a look at the lineup, Bob wonders, “Is Krisztian Nemeth a CF or isn’t he?” He’s played winger for Vermes but was brought in to fill a void at striker.

The versatility on this roster brings up a fun question for Sporting Kansas City fans. What is your preferred LW/CF/RW combination? Forget about who is injured and what you think Peter Vermes will do. Just let us know in the comments what front-three you’d select.

There is also a discussion about Daniel Salloi. He has seen so much of the bench lately it is starting to look like he is in the dog house. After last week’s performance from Gerso, Vermes’ selection will tell us a lot.

How are the injuries of Diego Rubio and Khiry Shelton, you ask? Well we don’t know that. Not when we recorded, at least. But check our Twitter for that answer on Thursday!

During ExtraTime, you’ll learn how Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs is taking all the attention away from soccer in Kansas City.
