The Good: Table It It's almost June, and here we are. Top of the East and with a game in hand on New York City FC and the New York Red Bulls. I was the super optimistic guy about the team at the beginning of the season, but it's still weird that the league is acknowledging that we are a threat.
In the end, I'll take a road point in Orlando. It would have been nice to take all three points from a conference opponent, but after the reffing fiasco on display in Orlando, the Philadelphia Union can just be thankful they didn't lose. Let's see from the referee's standpoint, how this game played out.
The Union came away with one point last night, but these links always get three points.

Let's Get Weird: Orlando City 2-2 Philadelphia Union Here's our review of last night's game.
Game Recap: Seattle Sounders 0-1 Colorado Rapids, That's Three In A Row Versus Seattle As we usually do, let's take a look at the Union's next opponent, the Colorado Rapids last game in which they were able to come away with a 1-0 win on the road against Seattle.
A chaotic 4-goal second half ended with the Union walking away from Camping World Stadium and memories of a wild night
A relatively tame first half gave way to a wild and crazy second half that ended in the Union walking out of Orlando with a single point courtesy of their 2-2 draw Wednesday night at Camping World Stadium.
Poor refereeing? Totally legal goals? Or somewhere in between?
The Philadelphia Union just wrapped up a 2-2 draw with Orlando City SC after a thrilling second half, but multiple controversies will certainly dominate discussion for the next few days. After Kaka scuffed a (deserved) penalty in the first half, Orlando managed to find the scoresheet twice thanks, in part, to some questionable refereeing.
Rate the players from this very entertaining and controversial match between the Union and Orlando City.
What a crazy match. The Union took a point down in Orlando in a 2-2 result, but only after a number of plays that will be scrutinized repeatedly over the next few days. On the one hand the Union are lucky to get the result given the offensive performance in the first half was their worst of the year.
A stoppage time winner and a crazy highlight reel save. Which did Union fans like better?
Union fans showed their appreciation for a clean sheet and a defender scoring the lone goal by rating all five defenders in the top six players in the fan poll for the latest win against DC United. In a mild upset Andre Blake beat out goal scorer Richie Marquez for the top fan vote getter, but Richie Marquez was the overall MVP when compiling all of the Union player ratings.
