The Union begin the season 0-2-2 but is there hope?

The Philadelphia Union have begun the season in the least ideal way possible, 0 wins, 2 ties and 2 losses. The Union could arguably have two wins but for calls that did not go their way. We've seen two red cards and multiple yellow cards in four games with one foul earning extended punishment.

If you thought Silviu Petrescu and Allen Chapman were bad, just wait...

PRO Referees - the refereeing organization who assigns referees for MLS matches - has released its weekly refereeing assignments. Allen Chapman, who refereed the Philadelphia Union's match against Real Salt Lake and called Maurice Edu for a penalty for fouling Luke Mulholland - who even admitted the call was wrong and it wasn't a penalty - isn't suspended yet.

Analysis and Player Ratings: Union 3-3 RSL

The Philly Soccer Page at related • 0 views
Despite offering precious little threat in the attacking third, the Union came away with 3 goals at Rio Tinto. In the end, Allen Chapman stole the show, unfairly sending the Union back East with only a point to show for their efforts.

Sons Of Ben To MLS: "The Officiating Must Be World-Class"

The Sons of Ben have voiced their displeasure with the recent officiating blunders that have affected the club.

The Philadelphia Union have been subject to several questionable calls by referees in their first two games of the 2015 MLS season. In week one against Colorado Rapids, there were the two potential penalty calls against Fernando Aristeguieta and Vincent Nogueira, the hand ball against Dillon Serna, and the red-card worthy play against Andrew Wenger.

Own goals, penalty kicks, and questionable refereeing. It was a very, very MLS kinda game.

The Philadelphia Union got off to a bit of a shaky start, not looking altogether composed during the first few minutes. The first card was shown to Olmes Garcia in the fourth minute for hitting a sliding Rais M'Bolhi in the face with a trailing leg.

After a rather dull, if not pointless 0-0 draw against Colorado in the home opener, the Union traveled to face Real Salt Lake in a game that was the complete opposite in every way.

Timbers backline shines, but Real Salt Lake matches defensive performance in scoreless draw

Timbers Blog at related • 0 views
In a home opener that was in some doubt up until days before its official date, the Portland Timbers were hoping to start strongly in their home debut against Real Salt Lake. While the defense for the Timbers was much improved - due to the acquisition of former RSL defender Nat Borchers - the offense couldn't get anything past RSL goalkeeper Nick Rimando despite several opportunities all night as teams played to a scoreless draw.

Now that the collective bargaining agreement has been ratified, we can now turn our attention to the 2015 MLS season. Portland starts their campaign battling with Real Salt Lake, a team that has traditionally given them trouble. With several personnel changes, however, RSL could be looking to regain their footing although they've usually been very resilient with various changes over the years.

Some times depression and great art go hand in hand. This week's look inside the numbers find us getting in touch with our inner Monet.

The Union suffered a demoralizing 1-0 loss at Chicago on Sunday evening and swapped last place positions in the league. The main culprit so far has been an anemic offense that seemingly lacks purpose.

I think it is fair to observe that most TFC fans tuned into the Sunday night game versus Real Salt Lake with defensive fears once they knew who were starting as the back four (Creavalle, Hagglund, Simonin and Morgan).
Although both RSL goals were taking advantage of shoddy marking, it was not the TFC defensive norm for most of the game.
