Los Angeles Football Club dropped points again at home in a 4 - 1 embarrassment against now Western Conference leaders Sporting Kansas City. The starting lineup had to see some big changes at the back with Eddie Segura out for the season, after having a procedure to repair his ACL and Jesus Murillo being sat with a minor injury to his hamstring with no return date in site. SKC came out with a plan to give the black and gold a taste of their own medicine. They pressed the black and gold back line and were successful in disrupting buildup play in the LAFC defensive half. A few times, SKC was able to quickly transition from their high press to their counterattack with a numerical advantage. LAFC gave up three goals in the first half. All of them came from turnovers in possession, two of which SKC went the length of the field to score. The second half saw LAFC take their effort to another level, but it saw more goal scoring chances go unconverted. After LAFC gave up a 4th goal to the visitors, Danny Musovski got a cancellation goal to avoid the shutout. This was a deflating loss for the Black and Gold faithful as it is the third game in a row when LAFC didn't take 3pts at the final whistle. LAFC will look to turn things around away this Sunday with a 4pm kickoff at PayPal Park against the San Jose Earthquakes. This gives them an opportunity to expel this bad taste in their mouth from their home loss. The 3 keys to the match are clear and obvious: 1). no mistakes in possession in the defensive half that lead to counterattacking situations for the opponent, 2). finish the clear cut goal scoring opportunities inside the 18, and 3). when adversity hits during the game, an immediate response of effort, energy and intelligence is mandatory. The pressure is mounting on Bob Bradley to right the ship. If three points is not taken this weekend, the black and gold could drop out of a playoff spot. This game is important to get the second half of the MLS regular season started on the front foot. In this fourteenth episode of the 2021 season, writers-at-Large Alex Dwyer (from Yokohama, Japan), alongside in-house tactician Pierce Maher, and guest appearances from Ben Bjelajac aka Benny Blanco and Sam Ko aka Slim from our sister podcast the FCFC pod breakdown LAFC's worst loss in recent memory at home to Sporting Kansas City.
One out the door, another in for Sporting Kansas City. The Gianluca Busio transfer to Venezia FC in Italy became official, and so did the team's signing of Jose Mauri, an Argentine-Italian midfielder. We talk about both on SportsBeat KC, The Star's daily sports podcast, with Shaun Goodwin and Cora Hall. Also on the menu: Sporting KC has been on fire, a 4-1 triumph at LAFC as its latest conquest. Daniel Salloi continues to impress and was named to the MLS All-Star team. The USWNT, coached by Kansas City's Vlatko Andonovski, claimed an Olympic medal but not the one they had hoped, and KC NWSL was reprented in the Olympic gold-medal match.

LAFC gets back to the Banc to take on one of MLS's top teams in 2021, Sporting Kansas City, and it's safe to say that if this wasn't rock bottom on our season, at least we don't have too much further to fall. SKC came into the Banc and demolished the Black and Gold, 4-1, for our worst home loss in team history. It all started amazingly enough, as Ted Lasso Night was celebrated at the Banc, complete with an incredible installation out on Christmas Tree Lane. There were biscuits with the boss, trivia questions, cool swag, and plenty of Instagram-worthy props to take pictures with. The cast members who play AFC Richmond's Dani Rojas (Cristo Fernández), Coach Beard (Brendan Hunt), and Thierry Zoreaux (Moe Jeudy-Lamour) were there and the club provided “Believe” rally towels in honor of Apple TV's great show.That's about where the fun ended for LAFC, as three goals doomed LAFC's fate before halftime. Pinpoint passing by “Moonlight” Graham Zusi earned Sporting a fourth goal, and even though Danny Musovski got one back, it would prove to be far too little, far too late for LAFC.Also on this episode, we visit the ghosts of centerbacks past in This Day In LAFC History, we welcome a new player into the fold of the Black and Gold, and we discuss our four, yes, four, members of Bob's MLS-laden All-Star Squad. On to bigger and better things in San Jose in just a few days!
Los Angeles Football Club earned two points in their last two matches with two 2-2 draws against Western Conference foes. The fellas in black and gold missed a chance to climb the table and now are tied on points with Minnesota sitting in 5th in the Western Conference. The match with Vancouver had a slow start as LAFC played their 3rd game in 8 days. Their lack of energy in the first half was apparent and was punished. Vancouver took advantage of a poor clearance from Kim Moon-Hwan in the 25th minute, giving Deiber Caicedo an easy tap in. Shortly after, in the 38th minute, Whitecaps top goals scorer, Cristian Dajome doubles the score on a header from a set piece. The response before half time provided hope as Edward Atuesta picked out Carlos Vela to cut the lead in half before the break. With a much improved showing in the second half, LAFC was only able to find the equalizer in the 75th minute. Jose Cifuentes hits a volley from a Diego Palacios cross that demonstrates his continued growth this season as he sits tied with Diego Rossi and Carlos Vela with a team leading 5 goals. LAFC's next match against Minnesota United started with LAFC on the front foot. Carlos Vela was denied by former LAFC Goalkeeper Tyler Miller. The deadlock was broken in the 40th minute when Jose Cifuentes intercepted a pass in his half and played the through ball for the Carlos Vela breakaway goal. Emanuel Reynoso leveled the score at the 49th minute mark with a strike after creating some space away from Marco Farfan. Tristan Blackmon got his first goal of the campaign with a header off a corner from Edward Atuesta. Minnesota would play spoiler with a goal in the 95th minute from Hassanu Dotson which finished the game at 2-2. In this thirteenth episode of the 2021 season, writers-at-Large Alex Dwyer (from Yokohama, Japan) and Ryan Wallerson (from Copenhagen, Denmark), alongside in-house tactician Pierce Maher, breakdown LAFC's two draws with Vancouver and Minnesota and previews the big Wednesday night game vs Sporting Kansas City.

I'm so glad you are here, whether you are curious about my background to help you or just being nosey, I'm thankful for your time. I was born and raised in the Bay Area, California and moved to Arizona at 16. Arizona quickly became my second home where I got my degree in Nutritional Sciences from the University of Arizona (#BEARDOWN) and the birthplace of my career. I'm currently based in Kansas City, MO where I run my online coaching business, and I also work full time for Sporting Kansas City, a Major League Soccer team. But let's rewind, before I became fascinated by the complexities of food and the body. Growing up, exercise your physique was always the focus. I played soccer, volleyball and ran track competitively. I was fit and healthy, so I thought…But suffered from chronic allergies, fatigue, constant injuries, debilitating migraines, low self-esteem, and yo-yo dieting, well into college. And being an athlete, I feel like we're taught to ignore how our bodies really feel in the name of being dedicated to your sport. I thought that was normal or the price to pay for being an athlete. It wasn't until I discovered a large tumor in my breast (that was thankfully benign) that shifted my perspective on how everything from your food, to your thoughts, to your daily movement, can impact your health no matter your background. Food became more than just medicine, it became daily communication to my body. In combination with mobility training, weight lifting, mindful eating and and learning how to listen to my body, the symptoms started to go away. As I navigated my own health journey, I wanted to stay connected to the game of soccer I love. So I began working with collegiate and professional athletes in Arizona as a nutritionist and fitness coach. And quickly saw how other athletes as they transitioned into life after sport were going through the same struggles I was. This is when Mindful Appetite was birthed to also help busy professionals. Now I'm not saying I have all the answers. But I do believe each of us hold the power to take control of our health again. The decisions we make every day about our food, mental health, and physical activity can alter our genetics and how we exist on this Earth. And hopefully encourage you to take action and ownership about your health so you can go on and inspire those around you. Because we thrive when we are well and work together! When I'm not testing out recipes or products, you can find me practicing my headstand, frequenting local coffee shops (black coffee is my jam), watching a soccer or tennis, wine tasting, or people watching at your local park or museum.

During this period of international soccer action — Euro, Copa, Gold Cup and more — the biggest world event was a conversation topic in Kansas City on Monday. The city's bid be a host site for the 2026 World Cup got a lead image as the KC2026 Bid Committee partnered with OUTFRONT Media to create a wallscape that measures 90 x 90 feel on the north-facing side of the building at 1627 Main Street. On today's SportsBeat KC, Sporting Kansas City director of marketing Aaron Borns and Kansas City Sports Commission president and CEO Kathy Nelson take us inside Kansas City's World Cup bidding process. After a break, you'll hear from Gianluca Busio, who made his USMNT debut on Sunday night in the U.S.'s 1-0 victory over Haiti in the Gold Cup opener at Children's Mercy Park.

In the tenth match of the 2021 season, Los Angeles Football Club dropped 3 points on the road to Western Conference contender Sporting Kansas City in a 2-1 loss. Kim Moon-Hwan opened the scoresheet with his first goal in MLS for the Black and Gold. In the 24th minute, Kim beat two players after receiving a pass from Jose Cifuentes, slotting the ball inside the front post. LAFC did not dominate possession as they traditionally do. It was partially due to going down a man in the 58th minute off of a Tristan Blackmon foul resulting in a sending off. As the rain began to pour in Austin, Blackmon gave a poor pass intended for Diego Rossi that was cut out by SKC young star, Gianluca Busio. The transition allowed Busio to find Daniel Salloi wide with space. To avoid the goal scoring opportunity, Blackmon stuck his arm out bringing Salloi to the ground. The free kick only resulted in Busio hitting the wood work which only was a sign of what was to come. SKC quickly evened the score with a goal from Mexican international Alan Pulido, in the 61st minute, after a poor clearance from Marco Farfan. LAFC showed defensive grit through the remaining 30 minutes, and pushed the ball forward looking for the winning goal. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to take a point. In the 87th minute, the Hungarian, Daniel Salloi, made his final mark on the match with the winning goal off an Eduard Atuesta turnover. In this seventh episode of the 2021 season, writers-at-Large Alex Dwyer and Ryan Wallerson, alongside in-house tactician Pierce Maher, review the last three games against Kansas City, Salt Lake and Austin. LAFC is now on a two game road winning streak which sees LAFC climb the western conference table to 5th.
Kansas City will feel like the nation's soccer center over the next couple of weeks. Sporting Kansas City remains molten-hot, collecting a 2-0 victory at the Los Angeles Galaxy last weekend. KC NWSL didn't just earn a 1-1 draw with FC Gotham, it did so in style with a goal by Mariana Larroquette that made ESPN's top plays highlights for the day. Add to that the arrival of Gold Cup group play at Children's Mercy Park starting Sunday with the U.S. Men's National Team, and it's a packed schedule. We talk about all of it on this episode of the daily SportsBeat KC podcast with guests Shaun Goodwin, Cora Hall and Briar Napier.

Sporting Kansas City can't seem to lose these days. And they're winning dramatically with their tendency to fall behind early. It helps to have players like Gianluca Busio, who has been named to the national team that will play in the Gold Cup next week.

Soaking in a great game day on Saturday as Sporting Kansas City continues to roll out the excitement. That is needed right now on the local front with the Royals in another nosedive. Euro 2020, some local golf flavor, the NBA, and a little more to boot.
LAFC travels to Children's Mercy Park to take on Sporting Kansas City, and for about an hour, optimism reigned! Unfortunately, the match is 90 minutes long. LAFC has not been great on the road this season, and the trend continued in KC. Carlos Vela would start the match on the bench, and Bob broke out a new formation, 3-5-2. A bad yellow in the 12thminute on Tristan Blackmon would be a harbinger of things to come. In the 25th, a bit of history for LAFC, as Kim Moon-Hwan becomes the first player of Korean descent to score for the Black and Gold. LAFC closes out the half playing well and heads into the locker room up a goal. Coming out of the locker room, a couple of changes, as Baird and Kaye enter the match. LAFC played the first 10 minutes or so really out on the front foot. In the 57th, the Black and Gold go the boost we thought we needed, as Carlos Vela entered the match. Unfortunately, just one minute later, Tristan Blackmon would get burned by Daniel Salloi yet again, earning a red and leaving LAFC a man down for the final 30 minutes or so. It took Sporting just 2 minutes to level, as Alan Pulido pounces on a Marco Farfan turnover and finds the equalizer. LAFC fought incredibly hard, and they were almost able to see out the point. Unfortunately, doomed by another turnover, SKC strung together three passes to find Daniel Salloi in the box, and the point disappeared almost as quickly as Filly's sobriety this weekend. Despite a couple of solid chances from Vela in the final 6 minutes, LAFC falls on the road and remains under the playoff line. Also on this episode, Filly is super salty. Like… really salty. He rants a bit. He sings several times. He throws and drops things. And he shows yet again how much he cares for his sports teams. He is a hurting Filly right now, with his Islanders having their season shut down in Tampa (home of TGLA! If you know, you know.) and now our beloved Black and Gold back in a funk. But we love our Filly! Scarf is also on the episode. We promise. Hopefully, we will have better news to report on Episode 153, but for now, we are off to the Banc to see Guatemala take on El Salvador!
Los Angeles Football Club earned four points in the final two matches of its four-game homestand at the Banc; the boys in black and gold drew 1-1 against the Houston Dynamo before beating F.C. Dallas 2-0 to bring the club's record through nine league games to 3-3-3. The draw was a bit of a disappointment in terms of results, but LAFC's defensive effort held Houston to only three attempts all game; that was very encouraging to see, as was the club's overall performance against Dallas. The struggling visitors mustered only a single shot on goal against LAFC, in comparison to the 19 shots (8 on target) that LAFC put towards Dallas' net. LAFC's next match against Sporting Kansas City in Kansas City represents a much larger challenge; SKC leads Major League Soccer in goals as well as chances created, and it is third in the league's supporter shield race. A victory on the road against the former Wizards would easily be LAFC's biggest win of the season thus far, and from the look of the last two matches, the club just might be up for the task. In this ninth episode of the 2021 season, writers-at-Large Alex Dwyer (from Yokohama, Japan) and Ryan Wallerson (from Copenhagen, Denmark), alongside in-house tactician Pierce Maher (one of us has to be in California., right?), breakdown LAFC's Texas sweep and preview this weekend's matchup against Sporting K.C.
It was a 3-1 final-score week for Kansas City soccer teams. Sporting Kansas City came out on top, while KC NWSL did not. In this episode of SportsBeat KC, The Star's daily sports podcast, we talk about both teams' results with Shaun Goodwin, Cora Hall and Briar Napier. Once again, Daniel Salloi was the story for Sporting KC. He played one of his best games yet on Wednesday, befuddling the Colorado Rapids with two goals and an assist. KC NWSL, meanwhile, got on the board at home for the first time in the regular season and took a rare lead with Marianna Larroquette's goal. But the Orlando Pride quickly responded, then scored twice more in the second half. We talk about these games, the teams' upcoming schedules and take a stab at who will win Euro 2020.

Let's not take sports so seriously that MLB is ruining its sport by checking pitchers for cheating, that's ridiculous. The goofy stuff will fade and we'll be left to answer the question, is baseball getting better? It's really small sample but I've got some numbers for you that could mean we are already seeing a more entertaining game. Sporting Kansas City is good again and they beat Colorado 3-1 on Wednesday. But it's the fans that are really good... nearly 19,000 pack into Children's Mercy Park. It's mostly Biden voters and they are screaming loud they are done with Covid and ready to move on. Welcome to the good side! Speaking of Joe Biden, he may have had his worst day yet when he trotted out a lame anti crime initiative. His plan goes against everything he's ever stood for in 48 years in DC and he knows it. It showed in his delivery. And a group of people south of KC want to start a new town called Golden, Ks. They are tired of their rural area being gobbled up by the Logistics Park along I-35 in Miami, Co. This is Trump country and these savvy folks have found a way to get the liberal media on their side. You have to hear this.
