MLS: Sporting Kansas City at Houston Dynamo Erik Williams-USA TODAY Sports

Welcome back to the real world after the holiday weekend. Let’s check the MLS Standings..

***rubs eyes***

Yes, Sporting KC is somehow still in first place. So turn that frown upside down and let’s get to the links for the day:

Power Rankings
SBI Soccer has Sporting Kansas City, the team currently on top of the Western Conference, down in 11th place. They’ve got the Columbus Crew at #1 this week.

Sporting KC II vs Indy Eleven
The Team Formerly Known As Swope Park Rangers kicks off Wednesday night and badly need a win to keep pace in their group.

McKennie introduced at Juventus
It’s just so glorious. Weston McKennie, one of us, was unveiled in a press conference in Turin on Monday. Our guy will be feeding passes to Christiano Ronaldo & Paulo Dybala. Of all the young USMNT hopeful saviors out there right now, McKennie has been my favorite. He plays a tough, unrewarding position and he is fun to watch while doing it. I really think there’s another level he’s going to find being surrounded by all that talent and experience, plus the support of a club like Juve.

Aaronson’s stock continues to grow
The Philadelphia Union 19-year-old starlet scored a beauty as they smashed NYRB. This kid is good. But it just feels wrong that the Union are good now. 2020 amirite?

Falcao: I want to play for Inter Miami
EVERYBODY WANTS IN! Higuain is reportedly very close to a deal, and now Radamel Falcao is looking to move to South Beach. Someone needs to warn all these guys about Florida Man.

Bradley sidelined with Grade 2 MCL strain
Toronto FC captain Michael Bradley is out for “weeks” after being taken down with a very ugly tackle. It was originally a red card and changed to a yellow after video review.
