Monday Musing

Jul 232012


Is the word to describe the 0-0 draw at Livestrong Sporting Park against the New England Revolution, a team that was destroyed by Sporting Kansas City in March.
What happened?
They were unable to take apart a bad Revolution team who has not been a good team all season long.
It is now the Toronto FC game in mid June that there was a goal at home in MLS play.  Two 0-0 draws in a row is not cutting it.
So far this season more goals have been scored on the road than at home.
Unacceptable when you are selling out your stadium and can take the Kansas City sports spotlight when the Royals suck(nothing new there) and the Chiefs have yet to start preseason training camp.

Montpellier Est Ici

While MLS talks about always having these friendlies against top European sides Sporting KC has been playing 2 games a week for a month so far and have a couple weeks more of this.
With the US Open Cup Final around the corner having these friendlies occur now are more of a distraction.
Yes, Montpellier HSC is the higher profile of the two teams as they are reigning French Ligue 1 champions and are to participate in the Champions League group stage but its the timing of the two friendlies is just inconvenient.
Who should be playing?
With a MLS home game on Saturday v a weak Columbus Crew have the typical substitutes bench in the starting line up and use all the members of the reserves so that they can get proper playing time and give the usual starting 11 a breather
Sorry Stoke, Champions League v Europa League….
The French team has landed and has participated in training at Swope Park Training facility and with that said they will be interesting to watch after losing their best player Giroux to Arsenal.
