Getting Defensive: Shades of Blue Soccer Show

A shiny new podcast looking at the current situation of the Sporting Kansas City defense.

MLS: Houston Dynamo at Sporting Kansas City Jay Biggerstaff-USA TODAY Sports


MLS regular season is back, Sporting Kansas City is back, and your favorite SOB is back.

However, Tuesday’s 5-2 loss against the Houston Dynamo in the anticipated return to Children’s Mercy Park was a big disappointment. Peter Vermes has been throwing anyone and everyone out there on the back line, and nothing seems to be clicking just yet.

Who has been the best centerback? The worst? Is there a best pairing yet? Is Matt Besler going to struggle to find the field this year? Where do you stand with Winston Reid? There are just so many questions right now, and that is just about centerbacks.

We discuss Graham Zusi at length and get an update on Luis Martins. Is there even a backup right back at the moment? Jaylin Lindsey looked pretty bad, but nobody is too worried about him.

It’s not all bad, though. SKC still sits on top of the Western Conference, I’ll have you know. We also look at the other positives the team has going right now.
