Because they should have built it in Missouri. :lol:

Today is the first day of games, the coach of Raytown SC BGFC (Billy Goat FC) is the dad of one of my best friends, and my friend is kinda on the roster.
They are playing right now, down 2-1 at the half. Watch it here: http://championships.usyouthsoccer.org/live__stream_3_PM/...

If Dom Dwyer scored a goal in the ASG, he would, without a doubt, celebrate by taking a selfie while in the middle of a front flip.
The fans would have loved that :lol:...

I'll probably get a shirt as well. I am going to wait til August 1st though because I'll be able to just buy one at the stadium instead of paying 10 bucks for shipping across the city...
And none were available on the website when I checked yesterday....

It's not that, but that there are some fantastic and deserving players that were either not fan selections or were left out of the team altogether....

EPB isn't on loan. I'm still sceptical about these rumors because they have been floating around ever since Wahl's article that Juventus bid on him.
If I find out anything I'll let you all know. ...

[quote]KC plays a really decent style of soccer. Also their field seems to be in excellent condition. I watched the Portland-Colorado game on my DVR today, and Portland's shitty field really affected the quality of play. The standard of play in this game is already a lot higher.

Dwyer really should have been in the team, probably Benny Feilhaber as well. Only reason Will Johnson made it is because of Caleb Porter because he has not been hour this year. ...

I think you are underestimating how much support SKC has here. If Matt Besler stays here for the rest of his career, wins a couple more trophies, plays in the 2018 WC, he could very well be right next to George Brett....

I don't see how these guys, especially Bernard, Alex Texiera, Taison and Douglas Costa stay with Shakhtar this summer. I'm sure most of them qualify for a EU work permit at this point.

If he stays, he will go down as an all-time great, leading the record books for SKC. He will be on the same level as George Brett, arguably the most revered man in Kansas City sports.

Just came here to post this. The guy who tweeted out works for the KC Star.

LA vs SKC is on ESPN2 this weekend, should be fun. Hopefully we can shut down Zardes, he really has been on fire recently.
Couldn't go because I had a family party come up, really disappointed. :banghead:...

I don't know if they are the frontrunners, per se, but just were the two teams mentioned by name.

I was planning on following Roma, and Serie A as a whole, more this season. WM clearly knows more about Roma than me so I'll leave that to him. I could write about a different Italian team, as well.
If Matt Besler moves to Europe I will be watching him every week so I could write about whatever ...
