The Pundit Panel (Week 24): Legion @ Sporting Kansas City II
John got the Charlotte score on the nose, and Kaylor got the margin of victory correct, so both get full points from Sunday’s contest. Simon called a draw, and to be fair wasn’t far off. Next up is the first of 2 games in October with SKC II. Form says that’s 6 points in the bag. How do the panel feel about that?
|John Fuller||Kaylor Hodges||Simon Iles|
|Prediction||Win 3-0||Win 3-1||Win 2-0|
|The Legion are coming off a very successful week. They just got a big ego boost from the league with a 9-place jump in the power rankings. Lou City are stumbling. The chance to go first in the Central Division is there for the taking. Oh, and the Legion are the only team in the division on a win streak. That’s all very good news.
SKC II? Yeah, not so great, although they can be unpredictable at times. The Three Sparks put 4 past Twonited last Wednesday; they should net at least 3 against this squad.
Much needed wins have come and with 3 points, the Legion could regain first place in the Central. We are looking to smash some goals and possibly some more chairs in the process. What team will we see against SKC II? Maybe a rotated team, maybe full strength. No matter who plays, we need to leave with a win.
The Legion are the much better team here and they should play like it. I’m feeling another goal for King Neco and a smashing match from The Brazilian Magician, Bruno Lapa.
|A very rare Friday night game for Legion this week. We won our first 2 games against SKCII this season and I don’t expect anything different tomorrow. However, the 1-0 win on the road last time against them was sloppy and nervy, so I’m not expecting a rout. Let’s go with a slightly more comfortable 2-0 win this time around.|
