In an ironic, but not surprising way, the season ended in the same way that it started.
Postgame quotes from Jim Curtin, Zach Pfeffer, and Brian Carroll.
Zach Pfeffer opened his MLS account but the Union could not make it stand. A Bernardo Anor goal deep into extra time doomed Philly to end the year on a sour note with a 2-1 loss to the Columbus Crew.
The Union will face a motivated Crew team fighting for third place finish in the East.
With players, coaches and fans all turning their attention to 2015, closing out 2014 with a home win was a small but important victory for Jim Curtin and the Philadelphia Union.
Video and full transcript of Jim Curtin’s postgame press conference, and video of interviews with Zac MacMath, Andrew Wenger, Jimmy McLaughlin, Amobi Okugo and Ray Gaddis. Also, postgame quote sheet.
Goal from Brian Brown and Pedro Ribeiro saw the Union defeat Kansas City 2-1 in the final home game of the season.
With the playoffs out of the picture, the Union must show they want to retain fans’ respect with an energetic and prideful performance.
