Anyway, looking through BigSoccer and it seems like the big talking point is... the refs. I've gotta say I didn't think the ref had that terrible of the game. I mean he surely asn't good, but he was missing calls and making questionable decisions for both teams pretty evenly, though I'll concede SJC was probably on the benefitting side a bit more than Chicago, but that's true for any game. I guess the big blown call to me was the second yellow to Segares, but his first yellow was his own dumb fault... Chicago fans also feel they should have had two corners that weren't called due to missed dflections. While I agree to a point, I don't know that they were incredibly clear for the ref to call and he didn't get help from his linesman, plus I read somehwere that Kansas City hasn't conceded a goal on a corner in 55 games, which is insane, so it may not have helped anyway.
Kamara and Zusi both had masterful games and the defense got it done again, without Collin for a second straight week. I believe the team when they say it's not an injury, but man sometimes PVs personnell choices seem weird. No subs used either. Who knows? It's working, so I won't knock it.
Speaking of... knocking it... here's some player ratings.
Sporting Kansas City
Man of the match unsurprinsgly to Zusi for his brace and excellent performance. Excellent work by the back line and Mr. Nielsen as well.
And now, some photos. I'm loving my new phone :D
