U.S. Open Cup final: Through the eyes of traveling Philadelphia Union fans

HOUSTON — There’s a reason any dose of optimism sensed by Philadelphia fans is met with caution.  The words failure and letdown are common in the Philadelphia sports vernacular because those emotions have been experienced much more than the joy that comes from celebrations.  Take it from a Philadelphia Eagles fan who lives and dies […] The post U.S. Open Cup final: Through the eyes of traveling Philadelphia Union fans appeared first on Pro Soccer USA.

Seattle Sounders vs. Philadelphia Union: community player ratings form

The Sounders’ win streak has come to an end in a less than glorious manner. Time to rate about it. Every streak has to come to an end (I guess? To be honest, I don’t really know the rules when it comes to streaks). This one ended about as you would expect: Early injuries meant Brian Schmetzer and the Seattle Sounders had to use subs sooner and in different spots than they would have liked, chance after golden chance didn’t quite bounce Seattle’s way, and a rare error by Stefan Frei gave the Philadelphia Union all three points.

Under the dark of night the Seattle Sounders look to continue their record-setting win streak and match the franchise-best unbeaten run. Half a year and practically a lifetime ago, when there was a chance that Seattle made a CONCACAF Champions League run, this match was supposed to be on a weekend day. It is now a late-season weeknight contest between two sides with playoff aspirations.
