Back when Preki resigned as head coach of the Sacramento Republic of the USL, the announcement had stated that he was headed to England to take a position. At the time that had shot him to the top of the list to take over the position at Leicester City in the Premier League. In the end though Preki didn't get that job, and since then, people have been wondering, "where is Preki?

It was a really weird day in news for former KC players. The news centers around the club's all time leading scorer, and probably the greatest player to play for the club, Preki. First early in the day, bookies in England made Preki the favorite to replace Nigel Pearson as manager at Premier League side, Leicester City at 3/1 odds.

Sporting KC Best XI - Midfielders

Down the Byline at related • 0 views
The voting for the midfielders in Sporting KC's "Best XI" has finished up and with that done I'm taking a look at how I selected my team for the Best XI. The first thing I immediately noticed when going in to make my picks was the fact that after selecting three defenders, we were selecting five midfielders, setting up a Bob Gansler-esk 3-5-2 lineup for the Best XI team.

KC's 7 road wins is a franchise record for road wins in a non-shootout season.

Kei Kamara's goal was his 50th in all competitions in his MLS career.

#TBT KC All Star MVP Performance

Down the Byline at related • 0 views
With the all star game on Wednesday this past week, I thought I'd take a look at the last time a Kansas City player scored in the all star game and the only time a KC player has been named the all star game MVP.

In 1999, KC was suffering through their worst season in club history, but KC still had two players named to the all star team for the Western Conference as Alexi Lalas and Preki were named to the team in San Diego.

#TBT Hattricks for KC.

For Throw Back Thursday this week I thought I'd go through all the hattricks in KC's history before last night's four goal performance by Dom Dwyer against FC Dallas.

The first hattrick in KC history actually didn't come until the team's third season, when Digital Takawira hit a second half hattrick for KC in their 3-1 win over New England on May 16th of 1998.

#TBT Highest Scoring Game in KC History

On May 2nd, 1996, the then KC Wiz played at the time, the highest scoring MLS game in the league's short history. Against the Columbus Crew at Arrowhead Stadium, KC came from behind to top the Crew 6-4.

Played in front of 8,848, KC jumped out to an early 1-0 lead thanks to a rocket of a shot by Mark Chung after a patented cut back by Preki drew three defenders to him in the fifth minute.

"The Teflon Tom"
There was a great temptation today to go back and simply re-post whatever it was that we wrote when Mo Johnston "moved upstairs", John Carver "stepped down", Chris Cummins was axed, Preki was sacked and Nick Dasovic was tossed aside. We could have done that - but pressing "Ignore" in spellcheck every time "Anselmi" popped up would have been exhausting.

Continuing the stats for appearances and minuts against each team, today it is Colorado. Being one of the original teams in the league with KC, these two have played a number of times. Less so in recent seasons since KC's move to the East. So the top players on this list are players from KC's early years.

"PREKI'S SMILE"

Even the most hardened of Bah! Humbuggards would be melted by the alluring, warm smile of former TFC manager Predrag "Preki" Radosavljevic. When he wasn't grinding out draws with eleven men back, dispatching talented players elsewhere for drone-like replacements or blaming "Canadian guys", Preki was lighting up a room with his friendly, charming manner.

Things just didn't go the way he wanted, or we wanted for that matter, at Toronto FC. Whether the lion's share of the blame lies with Winter, with the toxic TFC Front Office or a combination of both - we'll never likely know.
