I am not a Union supporter, yet.

Glad I am getting to post this the same day Ryan posted his piece.  And like Ryan, I’m curious how other people feel about this, particularly people not native to the Philadelphia sports scene. I am not a fan of Philadelphia sports.  There, I said it.  Let’s get it out there.  […]

Goodbye Plasticity!

Goodbye Plasticity!

The reaction is always the same – “of course you are” or “figures” or “aren’t all Yanks?”. It’s not easy being an American Red Devil. Well, some would argue it’s too easy. Manchester United are arguably the world’s largest soccer team, and, inarguably the de facto European team for American […]

Q & A with Jeremiah White

Q & A with Jeremiah White

At first, Jeremiah White looked like the one who got away. Many thought the speedy, 27-year-old winger with Philly ties would sign with Philadelphia Union after he left AGF Aarhus in the Danish league in December. It didn’t happen. Instead, he now plays for Al-Ettifaq in Dammam, Saudi Arabia. But White […]

Union schedule: no weekend home games in prime time?

Two home games in three months. Not one weekend home game in prime time. Gah. Philadelphia Union will start the season in a way that probably should earn the team the nickname of Wanderers or Rovers, instead of the Snakes that I’d been thinking of them as. They’ll go to […]
