The two worst teams in the Eastern conference square off this Saturday. Montreal is looking to build on their first victory of 2017. The winless streak is significant for the Union, but so is their four game losing streak. Is this the week Jim Curtin's men change their fortune?
One year ago, C.J. Sapong was the unquestioned top forward on the Philadelphia Union depth chart, and he responded by rippingthe back of the net on five occasions in his first nine matches.
Despite the strong start, though, Sapong faded toward the back end of the season, much like the club as a whole, and the mission of Earnie Stewart and Jim Curtin to create depth at every position created a new challenge Sapong has welcomed.
C.J. Sapong brought the Union to life on Saturday. After a rough opening travel schedule, the Union get an extended home stretch to sort out their offensive problems and figure out what lineup makes them hum. PSP's Dan Walsh explains.
We look at Alejandro Bedoya, the final player in the season preview's "Players to watch" series. The U.S. international will be asked to do many things. Where will he excel, where will he struggle, and is he the face of the Philadelphia Union?
The Union should be a good team right now. Instead, they're collapsing toward the playoffs so poorly that they don't deserve the off-season, and the coaching staff deserves some of the blame, writes PSP's Dan Walsh.
The stats show Ken Tribbet is just as good as Josh Yaro, if not better. He'll get a chance to redeem himself Saturday vs. Toronto. Also, a closer look at the playoff race and observations on the Union's Kevin Krantz signing, courtesy of PSP's Dan Walsh.
Yes, the goalposts have moved for Philadelphia Union. Preseason expectations are long gone. This team is an MLS Cup contender, and Union fans and management should treat them accordingly. PSP's Dan Walsh weighs in on fan questions about this.
A beautiful team goal capped by Sapong's finish secured a 1-1 draw for the Union on short rest at Stade Saputo.
Faced with the adversity of playing in the rain, the adversity of playing on short rest, and the adversity of playing a team also at the top of the Eastern Conference Standings, the Union managed a come from behind 1-1 draw early Saturday evening at Stade Saputo in Montreal.
