    According to a post (in Spanish) on ESPNFC.com, Philadelphia Union midfielder Michael Farfan was one of three Major League Soccer players who took physicals today with Cruz Azul, one of the top teams in Liga MX, the Mexican professional league. (If you use Google Chrome, you can translate it into English and make it slightly…

    If you take John Hackworth at his word, the Philadelphia Union manager is seriously considering shaking up the lineup for Saturday’s huge Eastern Conference matchup against the Houston Dynamo at PPL Park. This comes as fairly big news because Hackworth, by and large, has pretty much stuck with the same guys this season, unless he’s…

    One of the best things about going to Union games the last three-plus years has been meeting lots of great people who DIDN’T grow up around the game.

    Chivas USA and the Philadelphia Union are not rivals, nor is Chivas USA any good. In fact, the “other” team from Los Angels comes into Friday’s game vs. the Union at PPL Park (7:30 p.m., The Comcast Network) with the worst record in the Western Conference. Normally, then, this might be a blah type of…

  6. How One Meaningless Goal Earned Michael Farfan a Free Pass From Union Fans

    It was beautiful. It inspired gasps. It appeared on highlight shows in Europe, where fans were exposed to the blue and gold of a team called “Philadelphia Union.” It was one goal in a meaningless friendly. And it has somehow earned Michael Farfan a nearly two-year free pass from Union fans. That YouTube video alone…
