After a stellar introduction to MLS last season, Willy Agada has struggled to get involved in Sporting KC’s first two matches. Does he need more service, or is it self-inflicted? The Shades of Blue podcast tries to figure out the problem.
Reinforcements cannot come soon enough. Sporting KC got it’s first point of the season with a draw away at the Colorado Rapids, but they’ve yet to a score in the first two matches. Wasn’t the offense supposed to be the part we didn’t have to worry about?
Marinos Tzionis got the start on the right wing over Khiry Shelton. It’s not a great place to be right now in the absence of Johnny Russell. We have a tough conversation about who should be starting. It can’t possibly be Khiry, right?
