The signing of Jamaican youth international Justin McMaster caught all of us a bit by surprise.

In a season where they will not make the playoffs, the Union went undefeated against Sporting Kansas City.

In a game that essentially meant nothing, the Philadelphia walked away from PPL Park tonight with an unimportant 2-1 win. Quick bullet points on a game that will surely soon be forgotten.
