The team's current MLS unbeaten streak sits at 11 games ... without another road game until September. Sporting sit in the middle of the Eastern Conference pack, 8 points behind Philadelphia.
DefenderMatt Besler got texted into the MLS All-Star Game before designated player Omar Bravo got Garbered into the game
And, of course,the biggest news was the signing of the team's second designated player, Jeferson
. Kansas City is one of just 7 teams with multiple DPs currently on the roaster -- Los Angeles (3), Toronto (3), New York (3), Seattle (2), Vancouver (2), Dallas (2) and KC (2).
Sporting also signed Trinidad Tobago defender Daneil Cyrus -- who had trialed with the team earlier this season.So... a great week to take a vacation, huh? Did I miss anything else?
It's time to move on and look forward, as the second-most important stretch of the season is upon the team.
A 10-game (10. Game.) home-stretch begins on Wednesday with a very interesting friendly against Newcastle United. Interesting because it will give KC a non-competitive environment to acclimate Jeferson AND figure out how to score a goal before the 90th minute strikes AND get a chance to play a high-level opponent in a prime-time showcase.
