Via Sporting KC's twitter account, Jacob Peterson returned to training today . This is good to see.
Home Cookin'. After tonight's deflating result, Sporting KC's schedule features just two road game from now to mid-September.
After last nights game, a quick display of the inefficiency of Sporting KC's shot-taking this season. When they take shots, they mostly miss the mark. Sporting remains the only side not to score a goal outside the 18-yard box this season.

Here it is; my projected starting XI for the Sporting Kansas City/ Philadelphia Union clash this Friday. I was off last week when I guessed Vermes would start Cesar at center back. Instead, he moved Cesar to defensive mid, and started Collin at CB. I think Peter goes with a lineup that allows for more attacking opportunities. I have Davy Arnaud in the starting line up, as he played an entire 90 minutes in the reserve team game on Sunday. I would think that means he's fit. I believe he starts against the Union. Also, I haven't seen this confirmed, but I imagine Chance will still be out with a foot contusion for the Union match. That leaves Michael Harrington as the starting RB. What do you think? What's your Starting XI for Friday?
From The Daily Wiz (KC MLS) Facebook fan page. ("Like" it if you haven't already, please. While you're at it, follow us on Twitter, too. Normally, I wouldn't post a photo of myself here, but this picture last night from Jimmy Conrad's farewell party just oozes class from one of the nicest guys you will ever meet. Best of luck in Cali, Jimmy. Also, I probably don't have a post in me today, so this can serve as your open thread for anything Sporting KC you'd like to talk about. 63 days to SKC First Kick.
Hat tip to Mike at Down The Byline for posting this first. Is this the new Sporting KC logo? For the record, I like it a lot. This could turn some people's opinions, for sure.
