The scoreline is secondary to some really solid play between the two pro teams in the Union organization

It was a perfect day to soccer in Chester, as the Philadelphia Union and Bethlehem Steel FC met for a scrimmage in front of a few dozen fans. While there were referees and score was kept, that was less important than the squads getting a tune up and the coaches getting a chance to evaluate the players.

Player rating results: Union defense can not hold against Red Bulls

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

To panic or not to panic? That is the question.

As the Union's grip on a playoff spot comes down to the final two performances, the perspective taking in Union land is at a fever pitch.

Player rating results: What has happened to CJ Sapong?

Brotherly Game at related • 0 views

CJ Sapong is suffering from a drought in shots.

Before we get started, apologies are in order. We listed Alejandro Bedoya twice in the survey this week and accidentally omitted the goalscorer Tranquillo Barnetta. I've dropped in an estimate for Barnetta based on past games like he's had this year but there is no official rating for him this week.
