Post Up: LA Galaxy 0, Philadelphia Union 0

Soccer is often times a beautiful sport filled with breath-taking passes, scintillating footwork, and incredible feats of concentration and precision. Last night's 0-0 draw between the Philadelphia Union and the LA Galaxy was not one of those times.

The Philadelphia Union's announced starting XI said they would be playing their traditional 4-2-3-1, however functionally the way they lined up was more of a 4-1-4-1 with Haris Medunjanin alone between the lines and Alejandro Bedoya playing up a bit higher than a traditional 4-2-3-1 might typically suggest for a midfielder.

Usually a draw in Los Angeles against the LA Galaxy would be considered a good result. While the Union will return from Southern California with a point, they still haven't won since last August.

LA had a very unlucky break in the 20th minute when Joao Pedro rang a shot off of both posts, and Andre Blake made a few breathtaking saves to keep the scoreline even.

A little help from the post keeps the match scoreless at the half.

The Philadelphia Union go into the halftime break against the LA Galaxy deadlocked at zero after a (dare I say it?) lucky break for the Union.

In the second minute, the Union almost gifted LA a goal when Alejandro Bedoya went to clear a ball and scuffed it.

Brotherly Bag #4: “Why even bother?”

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

It's a question I'm sure many are asking themselves.

We took a brief hiatus, but we're back to answer your questions about the still-horrible Philadelphia Union.

Why should we even bother to buy tickets to this team anymore? Also, how can we convince Comcast to buy this team?

Jordan Wohl: But, wait till next ye—Sorry couldn't resist.

The Union need defense more than they need Haris

Desperate times call for desperate measures.

Some things are certain. Death. Taxes. The Philadelphia Union sticking to their 4-5-1 formation. You're not gonna change the inevitability of them, so you may as well start working within the confines presented to you. I'm not making any dinner reservations past next week, I itemize my deductions, and we may as well try and figure out the best way to use the 4-5-1 with the players the Union have healthy now.

Hello darkness my old friend

You have to feel for the Philadelphia Union's communications department. They're the people who run the twitter account that people use to vent their frustrations on the Union's season out on, as well as the Union's Facebook page (which is like the twitter account but where your racist uncle can also do the same thing).
