Based on information from season ticket holders who were in attendance, as well as tweets from Union fan extraordinaire BarbCV from the event, here are some of the topics that were discussed:

  • The Union is very sound financially with a very healthy coffer for improving existing player contracts and new player acquisition.

Fight aneurysms: protect this man! (Photo: paul Rudderow)

WVHooligan predicts who the Union will protect in the Expansion draft. I can't say whether I don't like the list or disagree with it, but if the Union have to leave Shea Salinas and Sheanon Williams unprotected and lose them because of league rules about international players, I think I might have an aneurysm.

Kickoff for Sunday's game is now set for 5pm.

ESPN2 is broadcasting New York Red Bulls v LA Galaxy at 3pm, which pushes the kickoff of Sunday's Union v Houston game, which is also on ESPN2, up to 5pm. Why the start times aren't the other way around, given the fact that the Eagles are playing the Cowboys at the Linc at 8pm, the Giants are playing Miami at 1pm and the Jets have a bye, is beyond me.

The Daily News reports this morning, "It appears the rumor regarding Colombian goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon joining the Union is true." Sources say the deal only needs approval from the league.

I would like to take this opportunity to start another rumor: Mondragon's closeness with Juan Pablo Angel (Angel is godfather to Mondragon's son) means that Angel will join the Union.
