|Last Meetings: VAN 3-3 KC
Didn't we just have a game? Once again, just go ahead and get used to it, folks. They're going to keep coming fast and furious from this point on for Sporting KC. Wednesday night saw the team earn a somewhat undeserved, desparation point on the road in Philadelphia. Saturday night sees the boys return home to the beautiful LIVESTRONG Sporting Park, once again, to face a foe that, in all honesty, must result in three points for the home side.
Vancouver are the only team in the league technically below Sporting in the standings, based on goal differential. As the climb from the bottom of the table is well underway for Sporting (6 games unbeaten, 10 points from the last 6 games), the very bottom team in the league is a game that, with no exceptions, must end in three points. Look for a slightly altered lineup this evening, as head coach Peter Vermes begins to juggle Wednesday-Saturday lineups for the foreseeable future.
As you can imagine, LSP is the place to be for this one, but for those of you watching from the comforts of home tonight, come inside and join Andy Edwards of The Daily Wiz, and (hopefully) a few of its readers for what's known around these parts as an Open Game Thread. We'll be discussing tonight's action live, as it happens on the field.
All you need to do is sign up for an SB Nation account, which can be done here. That account and screenname are good for all 300 of the network's sites, many of which are team-specific. Meaning, you're a fan of the Kansas Jayhawks, Missouri Tigers, etc.? There's sites for each one of those teams, including all NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL teams if that's your thing, plus about 100 college team sites. Once you've done that, simply agree to join the membership here at TDW, and you're in!
