Sapong back to Sporting KC

We are hearing from our sources that CJ Sapong is on his way back to Sporting KC after just over a week of loan time with Orlando City. While originally the plan had Sapong playing out the USLPRO season with the Lions, Sporting recalled their player and will now be loaning someone else back to Orlando.

Sapong competed in three matches in just over a week scoring once and assisting on another goal as Orlando went 1-2-0 during his loan. Defender Kevin Ellis, who was loaned to Orlando with Sapong, will remain with the Lions by all indications.

Could we potentially see Dom Dwyer come back to Orlando for the remainder of the season? Lions fans should know fairly soon as the USLPRO transfer window closes on July 30th.


  1. Dwyer!!! (Fingers crossed, prayers muttered, superstitions accessed)

  2. The "revolving door" is central to major-minor league loan arrangements. The "major league team" calls the shots because they pay the freight.

    Question: Have certain affiliated (minor) clubs benefited more than others so far?

    Richmond is undefeated. Yes, they have had a scheduling advantage. But, it seems their relationship with D.C. has helped them to within 2 points of Orlando City with two games in hand.

    Orlando City has 1 league victory in the past five weeks, continually dropping points. This disparity with Richmond is not caused by Richmond's fewer matches away from home. Orlando has been decimated and they have played poorly.

    D.C. has been in such turmoil with multiple roster changes. This does not seem to have an impact on Richmond.

    Sporting K.C. has some issues, but Sapong knew he would quickly return to KC. That was announced by Sporting the day he arrived in Orlando. If he does not play and perform well Saturday night, the Lions will be embarrassed by Vermes and the Kansas outfit.

    A question aside: Why did K.C.release Songo'o? He was playing well for us.

    Orlando City does have a 2 weeks off following Saturday's match. Time to settle the roster and come together for the final month's league championship and playoff race.

  3. The revolving door is a disturbance to Minor league soccer. OCSC has no continuity and can form no 'teams'.

    Since Dwyer was taken back they have done nothing.

    I knew all along OCSC would just be a training ground for Sporting KC. Thats exactly whats happening
