The ridiculous 2020 season has come to an end for Sporting Kansas City. But a new Shade of Blue is here to help you work through those confusing feelings during this troubling time. There are plenty of positives we can choose to focus on and be hopeful for seasons to come.
Women’s soccer is returning to KC! A show of their own is coming soon, but we briefly discuss the good news for the local soccer community.
The loss to Minnesota United FC became almost painful to watch. So we won’t dwell on it, but there are points to discuss. The absence of Alan Pulido is on the minds of most SKC fans, the header from Roberto Puncec may have actually crossed the line but went mostly unchallenged, and Kansas City was undoubtedly missing the veteran experience of Matt Besler and Graham Zusi.
Peter Vermes and Co. need to make decisions on 15 players. Most of those decisions have already been made, but we won’t hear official word just yet. That is a big number, but many fans would like to see turnover anyway. We look around at some of the options and players out of contract and decide who is on the chopping block.
Tough choices must be made. Who do you get rid of? Are you sticking with Daniel Salloi? Is it really time to move on from Matt Besler? Is Gerso worth his large salary?
Stay tuned as more podcasts are coming on this subject. News should not be too far away.
