2019 Philadelphia Union Thread

Post by UNI88 »

We now have threads for the Phils, Eagles, 76'ers & Flyers but I didn't want the Union to feel left out.

They're currently in 2nd place in the East and looking at the playoffs.

Ganny, how have they been playing and what are their prospects?

89, any negative soccer comments you want to add?

:-P

They're young, so that's a good thing. Actually have a few players from their academy playing on their first team side now, so that's always a good indication. There was some thought they would fall off after a fast start to the season, but they've been hanging around for quite some time now that it's probably not a fluke. Think they just had a home draw with LAFC, who's probably the best team in MLS this year. I haven't been able to get down to a game and it looks unlikely I will going forward, but a nice turnaround for a club that's been pretty boring for the past few years.

That would be piling on. MSL fans are like scrapple. They're the left overs from MLB, NFL, NBA and NHL.

That's a violation and a confused analogy really. First of all, you can't diminish scrapple, that's just fighting words. And second, scrapple is awesome. No one really thinks MLS fans are awesome. Bad analogy. :tothehand:

I took 88.2 & 88.3 to a game against the Galaxy in late July. Sat with the Army and had an absolute blast. 88.3 isn't a soccer fan and she loved it. It is a great experience, probably the closest you will get to the energy of a European soccer game in the US.

And I just won tickets to tomorrow's game against DC United! :dance:

Your opinion on scrapple is crap. Been way too long in Maryland. This is what happens when you can't make it back to UD games, you get soft. :hater:

Don't knock the Union. I get a free Chick Fil A sandwich when they win by two.

I dunno, a few families in DE have made a living out of it, so I guess you can't say it's a complete fail.
