  1. Three big misses the Union will regret if they miss the playoffs

    MLS: Philadelphia Union at Real Salt Lake

    From afar, if you simply looked at this year’s standings with two games to go and last year’s standings, you’d call this season a success for the Union, whether they make the playoffs or not (this cool graphic shows the Union’s form this season). The team already has 10 more points than it earned all…

    Wednesday night was a tough one for local soccer haters after the Union’s offense exploded for three goals in their victory over the Columbus Crew down at PPL Park in Chester (more here).
