    The season is so close, I can taste the Lot A dust storms, cold beer, and whatever that smell is coming off the Delaware River (possibly dead bodies). We have to wait nine more days for the Philadelphia Union home opener at PPL Park, but we’re just two days away from the first kick of…

  2. Maurice Edu has yet to play in Philly, yet he’s already cooler (and nerdier) than you #throughglass

    The Union capped a wild offseason Monday by pulling off a steal trade for central defender and 2012 Major League Soccer Rookie of the Year Austin Berry (more on that tomorrow). For now, we can be entertained by the offseason’s biggest acquisition, midfielder Maurice Edu. For the last few days, Edu has been wearing Google Glass…

  3. Union finally get their man — now, who is Maurice Edu, anyway?

    Maurice Edu will be unveiled Tuesday as the newest member of the Philadelphia Union.

    After weeks of rumor, vague “Internet reports” and a likely disagreement with Major League Soccer over money,  the Philadelphia Union finally got their man. Yes, the team finally finished off the deal for 27-year-old midfielder Maurice (or “Mo”) Edu on Monday, and marked it by unveiling a surprisingly awesome Twitter hashtag, #MOTownPhilly.  Edu will be…

  4. Union have plenty of chips to play on SuperDraft day in Philly

    Jan 15, 2014, 4:11 PM EDT

    Georgetown's Steve Neumann -- here at last week's MLS Combine -- is an interesting draft target for the Union, since he's a Council Rock North graduate and his family holds Union season tickets.

    So, any news out there on the Union front? It’s been a weird 24 hours for the Union, what with trading their best center back for another center back and trying to sign a high-priced star only to have the league say they can’t. The Maurice Edu saga is not complete as of this writing,…

  5. Union finally working on a new addition this offseason: A mascot (yes, seriously)

    Philadelphia Union fans are getting punchy this offseason waiting for the team to do SOMETHING to improve for 2014. Well, apparently there is a pulse at PPL Park, and some research being done about a new acquisition. Problem is, it’s not a left back, an attacking midfielder, or anything else the team really needs. It’s a…

  6. The Evster Asks “What Kind of Soccer Fan Are You?”

    Just a guy wearing a horse head.

    Like it or not, soccer fever has swept the US. And while casual fans are experiencing some light sniffles before the new season, a host of white people have become fully consumed by the virus, barfing their brains out in anticipation of this weekend’s fixtures. On Saturday and Sunday morning, they will invade our pubs, wear…
