Match Preview – Philadelphia Union vs. Houston Dynamo

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

After a most unsavory defeat in North Jersey, Philadelphia returns home to battle a Houston Dynamo side that is having troubles of their own.

In what has suddenly become a dismal start of the season for the Philadelphia Union, they face a team in a similar situation in the Houston Dynamo. Having lost three matches straight, Houston comes to town to face a Philadelphia team that has lost twice and drawn thrice since their only win in match day two of the season.

Poetry Corner Kicks: Union 1 - Red Bulls 2

Poetry Corner Kicks expresses his frustration.

Well that didn’t go as planned. It was oddly reminiscent of how the New York Red Bulls got off the schneid last year: a 2-1 win in Harrison, NJ against the Philadelphia Union. The Union had the stats to back up a win, but as we have seen time and time again, stats don’t win games.

My Trek to New York (Jersey)

It had been almost two years since my last journey to the tin can that is Red Bull Arena. I traveled there filled with optimism of a victory, would I leave satisfied?

This was not the first trip I've made with the Sons of Ben, and it certainly won't be my last. I've traveled twice each to New Jersey and Washington DC respectively, but I hadn't traveled anywhere for the Union since August of 2012.

Red Bulls 2-1 Union: Stat Zero of the Match

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

The Union have a problem giving up good shots and the numbers back it up. That problem was exposed by the Red Bulls on Wednesday night and this time there wasn't enough offense to save the day.

Perhaps one of these days it will be the Philadelphia Union that play like the desperate team. The New York Red Bulls, at home and desperate for their first win, found enough space inside their offensive 18 to net two goals and earn the win.

Bulled Over: New York Red Bulls 2-1 Philadelphia Union

It all went wrong for the Union as a solid first half gave way to a leaky second half, and the Union dropped all three points on the road at Red Bull Arena.

Sometimes things go your way, and other times they all go wrong. For the Philadelphia Union, this was one of those nights where things did not go their way.

The most recent draw at the weekend against Real Salt Lake hit home a little differently after playing well against the best MLS has to offer. When is a draw acceptable?

Former Union midfielder comes on late for Cruz Azul, salvages tie for Los Cementaros.

Ex-Philadelphia Union midfielder Michael Farfan had a dream Liga MX debut on Saturday, coming on for Sergio Saucedo in the 79th minute and scoring the game-tying goal against Pachuca in stoppage time. Pachuca took a 2-0 lead in the 65th minute on a brace from Ecuadoran Enner Valencia.

Who knew that Don Pedro and Benedick from Shakespeare's 'Much Ado About Nothing' were anticipating the Red Bulls wretched start to the 2014 season?

For those of you not up on your sixteenth century literary criticism, the quote from the title refers to the fact that even the most successful Lotharios do eventually succumb to the ravages of time and are forced to change their womanizing ways and settle for a less glamorous life.

Get The Whole Story on Match Day 7 as the Union visit New York Red Bulls - from preview to post match analysis.

tBG) New York has gotten off to a terrible start, going 0-2-4 so far. Why is this?

OaM) I don't know if I can point to one thing. Part of it is that the team seems like they're still working through tactics.

Poetry Corner Kicks: Union 2 - Real Salt Lake 2

Poetry Corner Kicks is happy that the Union had a late goal of their own this time.

When they want to, the Philadelphia Union can play with the best teams in the league. Perhaps they can even beat the best teams in the league. But until they fix their mental gaps, they won’t BE the best team in the league.

At The Beautiful Game

A tribute to the Union game experience

We run opposite the birds in spring, flocking south down to Chester. We rest under the Commodore's bridge to watch the Union play their game. And who will be anointed a hero today? As we round the turn, arms wave us in - half welcoming a long lost friend, half directing our wheels that roll like soccer balls over the stones.
