We look back at what went right and what went wrong for the Union in the month of July

There were very few MLS matches played by the Philadelphia Union in the month of July, with an international friendly and a US Open Cup match. In the month of July the Union went 2-0-3. The two wins include a rout against the Portland Timbers and a win at Red Bull Arena in penalty kicks against the New York Red Bulls to advance to the semifinal game for the US Open Cup.

Here are the 10 things we learned from the 21stweek of the MLS season.

1. Pirlo!

Andrea Pirlo is royalty. There is no other way to explain why opposing players refuse to tackle him, refuse to harass him, refuse, really, to even look threateningly at him.

Pirlo played just a shade over 30 minutes in his NYCFC debut on Sunday afternoon at Yankee Stadium, and he was absolutely magnificent.

Here are the 10 things we learned from week 20 of the MLS season.

1. The Galaxy Raise The Stakes

A fair number in MLS would tell you that the 2014 LA Galaxy was the league's best attacking team ever. The front six – Juninho, Marcelo Sarvas, Stefan Ishizaki, Landon Donovan, Gyasi Zardes, and Robbie Keane – combined for 68 goals in the regular season, and added nine more in the postseason en route to the team's fifth MLS Cup.

Here are the ten things we learned from week nineteen of the 2015 MLS season.

1. Hats Off To Jim Curtin

Jim Curtin, without a doubt, has the hardest managerial job in Major League Soccer. Ask any Union fan, or anyone who covers the team, and they'll tell you that the aggressively inept ownership of Nick Sakiewicz has made it impossible for Philadelphia to succeed.

By the end of the season, the Timbers would be Western Conference champions playing a slick style of soccer under a young manager with confidence and vision. The Crew was mired in a stretch in which they'd lose six of seven games.

The Union were able to take down Portland 3-0 in a great team performance. Is it a sign of things to come, or is it just another example of a team not bringing their best squad?

Every time Portland came to visit the Union before Saturday the game ended in a 0-0 draw. It looked like much of the same as the teams went into halftime locked in a very familiar scoreless draw.
