We’re still smarting from the Union’s first round playoff loss at the hands of the Houston Dynamo, but a week later, it’s already starting to settle in that 2011 was still a productive step toward true contention in the MLS. The Union have begun looking ahead too, both in regard to the players who will be on the field and the unis they’ll be wearing.
Tonight, Union fans got an email saying that the team will soon be unveiling new primary and secondary kits for the 2012 season. We don’t have any idea what they might look like, but they’re offering up an incentive to get the unveiling to happen sooner rather than later. As of this posting, the Union have 85,291 ‘Likes’ on Facebook. When they hit 92,012 (emphasis on the 2012), they’ll unveil the new gear.

The Union head into tonight’s second leg of the MLS Eastern Conference Semifinals (8:30/ESPN2) against the Houston Dynamo down a goal. Outscore the Dyanmo by two goals in regulation and they’ll advance to the Conference Finals. Outscore the Dynamo by one goal in regulation and they’ll force a 30 minute overtime (there is no “golden goal”). If the two teams remain tied on aggregate after the 30 minute overtime then the winner will be determined by penalty kicks.

Peter Nowak’s game plan in the Philadelphia Union’s first ever playoff game was baffling and it didn’t pay off in the end.

The Union will play their first ever playoff game on Sunday at 5:00 p.m. against the Houston Dynamo. In anticipation of the game I reached out to Zach Woosley, Managing Editor of Dynamo Theory, for some insight into the Union’s playoff opponent.

The Philadelphia Union will begin their first ever playoff series against the Houston Dynamo this weekend, with game 1 in Chester on Sunday. Before the playoffs make or break what should be considered a fantastic run no matter what, we thought we would take the pulse of Union fans on what were the best and brightest moments and players on the pitch this regular season.

Oct 19, 2011, 4:13 PM EDT
The Union clinched their playoff berth with a draw on Saturday which makes Thursday night’s match with the New York Red Bulls a game for postseason positioning. For the Red Bulls, however, they need a victory if they want to control their own postseason destiny.

Faryd Mondragon of the Philadelphia Union is welcomed back by the River End

It was a great feeling leaving PPL Park last night. Even though the Union only tied Toronto FC, 1-1, they won by earning the point they needed to clinch a playoff berth. In their second season, the U have already made it to the MLS’s exclusive postseason. That’s a tremendous source of pride for the team, from ownership to players, staff, and definitely us fans.

The Philadelphia Union can clinch a playoff spot with a win today over Toronto FC in Major League Soccer action.

Where can you turn during a Philly sports crisis like this? Where and how should you reallocate your suddenly available sports watching hours? How about the Union? A Philadelphia soccer primer.

The Philadelphia hockey and soccer teams were well represented at last night’s Mitchell & Ness party where Questlove was DJing.

The Union’s Sebastian Le Toux has emerged from a first half scoring draught in a huge way, racking up 8 goals in his last nine games after scoring just one from March until August. Seven of his goals came in the six matches the U played in September.

If Jimmy Rollins thought it was quiet at Citizens Bank Park last night, he should have heard the Home Depot Center. The sparse crowd there to see the Union take on Chivas USA gives us an even better appreciation for how loud and full PPL Park is on any given game night.
Oct 2, 2011, 7:17 PM EDT
The Philadelphia Union travel to the Home Depot Center to face Chivas USA as in-form goal scorers Juan Pablo Angel and Sebastien Le Toux face off.

Thursday night’s match hosting DC United had huge playoff implications for the Philadelphia Union, and they came out of the gate looking like they fully understood that.
Sebastien Le Toux continued his tear through the MLS’s second half, potting two goals in the game’s first 15 minutes. If you were late coming to PPL Park, you probably missed the first one. The U again did their best to catch the opposing backline flatfooted with the blazing fast Le Toux in motion, and it worked to precision on these two goals, which you can see in the first two minutes of the video below. Right about the 2:00 mark, you’ll see Le Toux doing his flashmob dance.
The match would stay level until the 57th minute, when Michael Farfan struck a great ball from distance, burying it in the top left corner. You can see that just after the 6:30 mark.

The Philadelphia Union host D.C. United at PPL Park as they battle for playoff positioning in the Major League Soccer Eastern Conference. Freddy Adu faces his old team and former teammate Ben Olsen.
Sep 24, 2011, 10:14 AM EDT
Heading into one of their most important matches of the season, Peter Nowak’s Union side was without several key players. No Faryd Mondragon, Freddy Adu, or Sheanon Williams against a very tough and talented Sporting KC side in their new building? Sounds like a recipe for a point-less trip.
