As I continue to update states, here are the top 10 in single season minutes for Kansas City.

In league play there was no change to the top 10 in 2015, the closest was Matt Besler who finished the season with 2,830 minutes played for Sporting KC in 2015.

Jimmy Nielsen - 2012 - 3060
Jimmy Nielsen - 2013 - 3060
Nick Garcia - 2000 - 2916
Peter Vermes - 2000 - 2916
Preki - 1996 - 2880
Bo Oshoniyi - 2005 - 2880
Matt Besler - 2011 - 2880
Mark Chung - 1997 - 2871
Kei Kamara - 2012 - 2871
Mark Chung - 1996 - 2847

In all competitions, no one again made the top 10 for their play in 2015, and again it was Besler that finished the closest, finishing with 3,430 minutes played.

Peter Vermes has read the reports regarding interest from Europe, and even acknowledged their validity. However, his focus remains solely on the task of retooling his current club in Sporting Kansas City.

The Kansas City Star reported in November that Vermes had been earmarked for a pair of Premier League jobs as well as a potential gig with a European national team.

Earlier this week, Sporting KC did a spoof on the Bachelor where Peter Vermes handed out roses to players that would be making the trip to the Rose City to take on the Portland Timbers. During that it was said that Tim Melia had already received his rose and would be going to the Rose City. Last night against the Timbers, Melia proved why he'd been the first rose recipient as the KC goalkeeper came up with seven saves as KC ended their three game losing streak with a 0-0 draw in Portland.

When Adrian Heath made comments on his radio show about Dom Dwyer and Orlando's interest in bringing him back to Orlando, the question was always whether the coach would get fined for his comments, which included "there is no secret that Dom wants to be here." The league's tampering rules are fairly vague compared to other American leagues, but most people expected there would be some comment coming form MLS.

Peter Vermes has had a knack for drafting industrious, contributing forwards during his time with Sporting KC.

Teal Bunbury, C.J. Sapong and Dom Dwyer were all drafted under the Vermes regime, and at one point, all provided goals for the club.

While Sporting KC have drafted and developed good young strikers, the team have been unlucky in finding similar players from abroad.

This year that now includes players traded within MLS. The only way for clubs to sign players now is if they were out of contract at the time the transfer window closed.

Connor Hallisey. The winger was a Mac Hermann trophy semifinalist. He'll come in and be able to play as a wide midfielder in Peter Vermes' 4-3-3 system. His attacking mindset for KC will be good, they need more players on the wing that are able to take players on.
