Having reported on United’s earlier stop in Philadelphia last week to mixed results, I feel the need to continue my so called ‘following’ of the club as they continue their trek across America before ending it in Mexico.

Don’t call this a match report or match analysis, outside circumstances kept me from devoting the time and attention needed to thoroughly dissect United’s or Kansas City’s performance, I wasn’t able to view the match in it’s entirety.

From what I did actually see, Kansas City played a very physical and organized match. On more than a few occasions, I witnessed potential flash points in a match that saw multiple yellow cards, a red, a penalty and a controversial goal.

Let’s allow this forum to serve as an open thread for EPL Talk readers who were able to attend the match in Kansas City, viewers on television and MLS fans who were able to see one of their own record a now classic victory over Manchester United.

So what did you see? How was Kansas City able to tame what looked like a decent but young Manchester United team? Who were the good or poor players for either side?

Let’s face it, United haven’t looked that convincing during this pre season tour minus their first match out v Celtic. The MLS All Stars must be licking their chops as they now also face United on Wednesday in a match they in fact look to be favored in.
