S3E09 - For the Glory KC is back with the 74th episode of the show!
Sporting Kansas City played their home opener, and it went really well... for 94 minutes. We break down the end of the game, rate the replacement refs and make numerous other observations about the game. Peter Vermes was not very happy, but he didn't blame the replacement refs. Though he did get very fired up in the post-game press conference.
Before we get to ...
S3E08 - For the Glory KC is back with the 73rd episode of the show!
Sporting Kansas City got the 2024 season underway on Saturday night and it was more of a whimper than a bang, but it's early. While play was sloppy and the passes were often off target, it is only one game into the year and the team managed a draw despite not playing particularly well.
S3E07 - For the Glory KC is back with the 72nd episode of the show!
Before we get to the soccer, despite my efforts to mostly keep the podcast out of the political realm, we have to speak of the horrible tragedy at Union Station this week in Kansas City. It shouldn't be political, but it somehow is. I realize sports are an escape for many, myself included, but I can't sit idly by. There are time stamps below if you want to ...
S3E06 - For the Glory KC is back with the 71st episode of the show!
Sporting Kansas City didn't have any huge news in the week, but there were a lot of little stories building towards the start of 2024. First, the roster seems set with the news that Kellyn Acosta would not be signing with Sporting KC and Peter Vermes confirming it's "highly unlikely" a Designated Player is signed before Week 1. Sheena and I share ...
S03E05 - For the Glory KC is back with the 70th episode of the show!
Sporting Kansas City had a relative active week, considering how slow the offseason has been. They played the final preseason game of leg one before coming to and from KC in the proceeding days. They'll be back in Miami by the time you read this.
S03E04 - For the Glory KC is back with the 69th episode of the show!
Sporting Kansas City have a lot going on this week, considering real soccer is still nearly a month away. A topic to break Sheena's heart is if Kellyn Acosta, rumored to be joining KC, is being looked at to replace Remi Walter long-term. He primarily plays that same position and Remi is out of contract after the 2024 season. We take a look at the cost and fit ...
S03E03 - For the Glory KC is back with the 68th episode of the show!
Sporting Kansas City, against everything I personally expected, did the right thing and moved on from Gavin Wilkinson. But somehow, they still got that wrong. From the non-apology given by Mike Illig to Peter Vermes' refusal to even entertain answering questions about the whole situation in Saturday's press conference. We have thoughts!
For the Glory KC is back with the 67th episode of the podcast but it's going to be a little different than usual.
Sporting Kansas City made headlines this week with the hiring of Gavin Wilkinson as the team's new Sporting Director. It's a search we didn't hear about until the hire was made. Peter Vermes gave up his title but got a new one -- Chief Soccer Officer. Wilkinson will report to Vermes, even thoug...
S3E01 - For the Glory KC is back with the 66th episode of the show and the first episode of season three. And waiting an extra day brought a lot of news!
Sporting Kansas City made waves on Monday when they did something that I personally thought was just a fun op-ed I wrote. They moved the Sporting KC versus Inter Miami/Messi game to the Kansas City Chiefs Arrowhead Stadium. Sheena and I discuss the pros, the cons and the massive r...
S2E58 - For the Glory KC is back with the 65th episode of the show and the final podcast of season two and 2023!
We look back on 2023 and our favorite memories from Sporting Kansas City and the KC Current. Sadly, we have to talk about Gadi Kinda no longer being on Sporting KC, even if we've seen it coming for weeks.
Then we break down the 2024 Sporting KC MLS schedule. The biggest dates, the possible road trips and of course, M...
S2E57 - For the Glory KC is back with the 64th episode of the show!
On this week's episode we decide to do a "double episode" with Christmas coming next week and likely a slow news week with it. If you are only interested in certain teams/topics, be sure to check out the run down below.
We start the show with Sporting Kansas City as they made some moves this week and a few more rumors rolled in. We get into the signin...
S2E56 - For the Glory KC is back with the 63rd episode of the show!
On this week's episode, Sporting Kansas City didn't do a darn thing this week, but we still found stuff to talk about. There was a minor rumor, already covered here on KCSJ, about Gadi Kinda. MLS Commissioner Don Garber gave his State of the League address, and he dropped a few nuggets:
S2E55 - For the Glory KC is back with the 62nd episode of the show!
On this week's episode, Sporting Kansas City made a series of massive roster decisions likely ending the KC soccer careers of Roger Espinoza and Graham Zusi. Sheena and I commiserate, remember fond times and get some of the feels out about their departure. On top of that, we talk about if the moves make sense and how we wanted to see their careers end. Plus, co...
S2E54 - For the Glory KC is back with the 61st episode of the show!
First, we have to discuss the tactical approach from Peter Vermes and company. With only 26 percent possession in the first half, it seems they didn't want the ball. Which is a puzzling choice when Houston is at their best when they have the bal...
S2E53 - For the Glory KC is back with the 60th episode of the show!
On this week's episode, Sporting Kansas City are about to play the Houston Dynamo and we do an early preview for the game. We break down the players to watch for Houston and the form of both teams. Sporting KC struggle on the road in the playoffs in particular and Houston are quite stout at home both this season and historically. Could that spell disaster for K...
S2E52 - For the Glory KC is back with the 59th episode of the show!
On this week's episode, Sporting Kansas City don't play any games, but there is still plenty to discuss. While we're calling it the "Logan Ndenbe Appreciation Hour," we don't do an hour on Logan, but we have to discuss his torn ACL, how he's a "dawg," and who is next up to replace him since he's out until next summer.
S2E51 - For the Glory KC is back with the 58th episode of the show!
On this week's episode, Sporting Kansas City send St. Louis packing from the playoffs as the eight seed upsets the one seed. Sheena and I have instant reactions from the night of the victory instead of going to bed. We break down the goals (highlights here) and all the big events from the game.
It was another incredible atmosphere, and sadly the last Sporting K...
S2E50 - For the Glory KC is back with the 57th episode of the show!
On this week's episode, Sporting Kansas City continue to blow minds, this time both San Jose and St. Louis fans learned the meaning of disappointment. Sheena and I breeze by that San Jose Earthquakes game to focus on the main event -- a potential three-game series against St. Louis City SC. Sporting KC landed the first blow with an amazing 4-1 road win in the c...
S2E49 - I said it eight months ago. Sporting KC waited until the last minute to prove me right, but 'everyone' gets in. It was quite a feat as no team that was winless through 10-games has ever done it before.
For the Glory KC is back with the 56th episode of the show!
S2E48 - For the Glory KC is back with the 55th episode of the show!
On this week's episode, Sporting Kansas City don't play a game, so instead we take the opportunity to look at their roster and play Fantasy Sporting Director. Imagine if Sporting KC's ownership put us in charge of roster decisions.
We decided who to re-sign, who to cut and who's option(s) to decline. Additionally, we both get the chance to buy out o...
Forty six years ago, on a warm summer night in Melbourne, Susan Bartlett and Suzanne Armstrong were stabbed to death in their home in Easey Street, Collingwood. Suzanne's 16 month-old son was asleep in the cot at this time. The double homicide remains one of the most confronting cold cases.
