Chivas Friendly Looks to be on For October

Today on Twitter, Robb Heineman gave out another nice little bit of information for Sporting KC fans. Heineman tweeted that LIVESTRONG Sporting Park is looking good to host Sporting KC vs Chivas in October. This would presumably be part of the home-home series that was set up as part of the Omar Bravo signing. Rumors are the leg down in Mexico was canceled due to security concerns. KC currently does have the weekend of October 8th open with no league game currently. That game is between a trip to San Jose and a home game against New York.

Personally I don't like this idea. Even with the week off, at this point in the season the focus shouldn't be on friendlies, instead it should be on either qualifying for the playoffs or improving seeding for the playoffs. It shouldn't be focused on a friendly. Aurelien Collin, Omar Bravo, or any of KC's starters get hurt in that game and miss the playoffs and it becomes a disaster situation for KC.
