Sporting KC International Friendly With Montpellier HSC Made Official

2

Sporting Kansas City made the international friendly against Ligue 1 champions Montpellier HSC official today. The match will take place on July 24th at LSP and tickets start at $20, unless you are a season ticket holder, in which case the tickets have already been added to your account. Of course, The Daily Wiz was well aware of the upcoming match before the announcement came as a slip up in the schedule online revealed a match that had never officially been announced. I was wondering if we would get another international friendly in addition to the one scheduled against Stoke City of the Barclays Premier League in England on the 1st of August and it looks as if we have. For a while though it looked as if Paris Saint-Germain were going to be the French team to go across the pond and play KC and In all honesty I would have preferred them over Montpellier because of the players PSG has and the way they play football is a lot more attractive. But one should not complain, the idea of an international friendly with a club from Europe in KC was next to unheard of a couple of years ago and I am more than satisfied to watch MHSC come to LSP to play, it should be a good match. However, the game does come around a busy part of the season for Sporting KC as it falls right in the middle of two league matches and will be the 4th game in ten days for the men in blue. Meaning we will probably see more reserve members take the pitch against Montpellier's players, which include the likes of Arsenal transfer target Olivier Giroud, and pacy French center back Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa.

Guys, We're Not Top of the League Anymore

+

So this morning I finally got around to checking the standings. I was extremely surprised to see both San Jose and Real Salt Lake ahead of Sporting in the league standings. Both teams have 22 points(albeit from more games), just one ahead of SKC's 21 while the Sounders are at 19 with a game in hand on Sporting KC. While this may not be exactly ground breaking news to most of you guys it is to me. I was deeply convinced that Sporting KC had basically amassed an insurmountable lead from their record breaking 7 wins from 7 games to start the season. I was convinced that no team could catch up to us. It went highly unpublicized that SKC had in fact dropped in the standings after their loss to Montreal 2-0 and it sends me a reminder that we won't be able to ride on our fantastic early season form all the way to November.

"Sporting Kansas City, You Wish You Were Manchester City"

6

Umm, I'm not quite sure where to begin on this one. Benjamin Massey over at 86 Forever(Vancouver Whitecap's SB Nation blog) posted quite a odd little "Hysterical Rant" today about Sporting KC and more specifically, the "flaws" in their name. Here are some choice quotes from the post that are sure to get your blood broiling ahead of the game tomorrow. "Sporting Kansas City will be a pimple on the butt of the universe." "You guys were formed in 1999 and still don't know what you are." "a city so unable to form its own identity that it can't even decide which state it's in." "Sporting Kansas City, you wish you were Manchester City" I just....don't even know how to analyze it...here just go check it out yourself. What I feel like he's saying is look, you guys have a flawless team and since their's nothing wrong in the squad itself let's just point out how big of a poopy name Sporting KC is because we all have little man syndrome in Canada. Oh and go leave him a comment:) Let the bantering begin.
