** 2014 Sporting Kansas City Thread **

Previous Result
1-1 draw against the Chicago Fire

Goals
Dwyer (33')

Disappointing game. Outside backs had a rough day on defense and they could not seem to finish in the important moments.



Next Three Games


Eastern Conference Standings (Full MLS Standings)

I feel like EJ is mostly past all of the attitude issues everyone used to go on about...

I, for one, would love to see EJ back in KC.

I do not understand all the EJ love. Dude has about 3 good games a year. He is shockingly similar production wise to Bunbury and Sapong and he tends to be lazy on defense. He can play in a 433, but is obviously better with a strike partner. I hope he scores a million for USA, but he never seems like a guy who is going to grind it out in July.

Re: goalies,
The biggest thing we lose with Jimmy is his field generaling and pacing. I am crossing my fingers that some of that rubbed off on Kronberg. In some ways Kronberg is a better goalie, because he commanda his box better. Jimmy let a lot of balls hang around on corners and crosses for the defense, and Kronberg is more aggressive on those. But Jimmy was damn good 1v1 and at organizing tge team.

I think it is a possibility but he seems to really like Salt Lake.

They will bring someone in but Kronberg will absolutely have a legit shot at being starter next year.

As far as GK goes, Rimando, Gspurning or Gruenebaum would all be fine. Really, we just need someone who can do the job when called upon.
I would be surprised if Dom moved on. Most of the news surrounding him is agent talk. EJ doesn't fit the personality type that does well in a Vermes system. For better or for worse.

Comets games are a blast. Afterward you get to go on the field and the kids get to meet the players. They were all very nice and signed a shirt for him.

Yep looking forward to going and seeing the Champs!

Sporting Kansas City has acquired midfielder Sal Zizzo from the Portland Timbers FC in exchange for allocation money, the club announced onFriday. Zizzo has been added to Sporting Kansas City's roster and will occupy a senior roster spot.

"He's a player I spent some time with around the United States Under-20's," Sporting KC Manager Peter Vermes said. "He's a very good wide player, someone who is going to help give us some more firepower out on the wing channels. He is someone we have been looking at for the last couple years."

In four MLS seasons, the 26-year-old Zizzo has made 70 appearances with two goals and eight assists while playing for Chivas USA (2010) and Portland (2011-2013). He entered MLS through a weighted lottery in July 2010 after spending his first three seasons as a professional with Hannover 96 in Germany's Bundesliga.

Zizzo has made one appearance for the U.S. Men's National Team, debuting in August 2007 against Sweden, and has represented the United States extensively at the Under-18, Under-20 and Under-23 levels. He started all five of the U.S. matches at the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada and helped the U.S. Under-23's qualify for the 2008 Summer Olympics.

A San Diego, Calif. native, Zizzo starred at UCLA where he was an NSCAA/adidas All-American and led the Bruins to a national championship appearance in 2006 as the NCAA tournament's top goal scorer. Sporting Kansas City defender Chance Myers and Zizzo were teammates on the 2006 UCLA squad.

Zizzo was married to his wife Destiny Moniz last month and is currently on his honeymoon.

Transaction: Sporting Kansas City (MLS) acquires midfielder Sal Zizzo from the Portland Timbers FC (MLS) in exchange for allocation money.

Sporting KC trades for goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum
Overland Park, Kan. native is an eight-year MLS veteran



Sporting Kansas City has acquired goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum from the Columbus Crew in exchange for Sporting KC’s second round pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft, the club announced on Monday. Gruenebaum has been added to Sporting Kansas City’s roster and will occupy a senior roster spot.

“Andy is a very capable goalkeeper, someone who has been successful in Major League Soccer and has had a lot of games in the league,” Sporting KC Manager Peter Vermes said. “He is a great addition to our team and a complement to our goalkeepers. We needed someone with a lot of experience because we're in multiple major competitions in 2014.”

“I could not be more excited to come back home and play in front of family and friends,” Gruenebaum said. “The ownership, coaching staff, players and fans associated with Sporting KC are first class, and I look forward to working with two amazing goalkeepers to help win another championship. I would like to thank Peter and the rest of the organization for giving me this opportunity. My wife and I are ecstatic to be able to call Kansas City home once again.”

Gruenebaum, 30, made 82 appearances in MLS competition (including playoffs) with 277 saves, 18 shutouts and a 1.27 goals against average in eight seasons with the Crew. He led MLS with 124 saves in 2012 and was a finalist for MLS Goalkeeper of the Year after being named the Crew’s MVP and Defender of the Year. This season, he conceded the second fewest goals (28) among goalkeepers with a minimum of 15 games played.

In 2009, Gruenebaum entered the Columbus lineup and immediately led the team on an eight-game unbeaten run en route to the team’s Supporters’ Shield title. The following season, he helped the Crew reach the Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup final and started all six games in the 2010-11 CONCACAF Champions League group stage as Columbus went unbeaten. He also started both of the team’s matches in the 2010 MLS Cup Playoffs.

An Overland Park, Kan. native, Gruenebaum was an All-American at Blue Valley North High School and was the Player of the Year in Kansas after leading the Mustangs to the state championship. He attended the University of Kentucky, where he recorded 21 shutouts in 66 collegiate games. Gruenebaum earned All-Conference and All-Region honors and picked up the nickname “The Hebrew Hammer.”

Prior to his senior season, Gruenebaum starred for the Des Moines Menace in the Premier Development League and was named MVP of the 2005 PDL championship.

Gruenebaum becomes the seventh Kansas City native on Sporting KC’s roster, along with Matt Besler, Christian Duke, Kevin Ellis, Jon Kempin, Erik Palmer-Brown and Seth Sinovic. He was a finalist for Player of the Year at the Kevin Gray Awards in 2013.

Transaction: Sporting Kansas City (MLS) acquires goalkeeper Andy Gruenebaum from the Columbus Crew (MLS) in exchange for Sporting Kansas City’s second round pick in the 2016 MLS SuperDraft.
