You just knew it was going to happen right?
Sporting Kansas City was officially eliminated from playoff contention after letting Minnesota United come from behind to win 2-1 on Wednesday night. That match, and the loss to the Colorado Rapids, were both done in the same fashion. SKC fans saw an early lead and were bracing for a collapse that we all knew was coming.
Cody, Robert, and Thad were in the studio and actually in pretty good spirits. Missing the playoffs was a forgone conclusion for a while and now that it’s official, the pressure is off. A weight has been lifted! But we looked back at the last two losses and talked about Daniel Salloi’s struggles, the ratio of Gerso Fernandes’ proximity to goal vs the likelihood he will score, and Gianluca Busio’s performance. You’ll also get a little bit of Ultimate Frisbee talk as a bonus.
After the break we took some time to touch on the situation with the South Stand Supporters Club and the SKC front office. The South Stand has been asked to move to the Cauldron, which does not make a whole lot of sense to us.
We end the show by talking about this weekend’s match with the Portland Timbers. Peter Vermes’ team doesn’t have anything to play for, other than being a spoiler, so he can have some fun with the lineup now. Do you play the kids? Is there any point in putting Krisztian Nemeth on the field? Does Graham Smith get another chance this season?
