Happy Monday, Sporting Kansas City fans! After two underwhelming matches in a row, I feel you are in need of a reminder:
Yes, they have a game in hand. But those points are in the bag and the situation isn’t as bad as it may seem. The defense looked much better and we’ve got a rumor that reinforcements may be on the way. Let’s get to the links:
