STAYING POWER
Pontius has a career year for Union

PART OF THE PLAN

November 3, 2016
HE'LL BE BACK
Union confirms Curtin for '17 season

CHESTER, Pa. -- An unnerving skid over the final seven regular season games left the Philadelphia Union barely earning the sixth playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Going 0-5-2 to finish 11-14-9, and then being bounced by Toronto FC, 3-1, in the knockout round of the postseason was hardly ideal. It also left fans wondering if coach Jim Curtin would be back.


October 27, 2016
FOND FAREWELL
Union say goodbye to Tranquillo Barnetta

Tranquillo Barnetta only spent a year-and-a-half with the Philadelphia Union. In that short span, Barnetta became a leader, a motivator and a fan favorite. But his brief run in MLS is now over, a result of the Union’s 3-1 loss at Toronto FC Wednesday night in the knockout round of the playoffs.


October 26, 2016

NORTHERN EXPOSURE

October 25, 2016
TIME TO TIGHTEN UP
Union need to avoid errors against TFC in order to advance in playoffs

As if limping into the playoffs on a seven-game winless streak wasn't bad enough, the Philadelphia Union must travel to Toronto FC hoping to secure a win in the knockout round.


October 23, 2016
BACK TO SQUARE ONE
Edu focused on recovering from latest injury setback without being a distraction to the Union

CHESTER, Pa. – Maurice Edu most recently began training again with the Philadelphia Union in July. He then made three appearances for Bethlehem Steel FC in hopes of a late season return to Major League Soccer. In fact, Edu was a likely starter for Sunday’s regular season finale against the New York Red Bulls. Now, he’s out until next season.


October 23, 2016
ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN

October 20, 2016
LOOKING IN THE MIRROR
Union players call team meeting after loss to Orlando City

Team meetings are not uncommon. When you’ve gone 0-4-2 over the last six games and careened down the playoff list by ultimately backing in, issues must be aired.


October 18, 2016
EYE OF THE BEHOLDER
Curtin happy with Union as a team, admits other views might differ

CHESTER, Pa. – Unless a differential of 12 goals is made up on Sunday, the Philadelphia Union will squeak into the playoffs for the second time in franchise history despite a six-game winless skid capped by last weekend's 2-0 loss to Orlando City.


October 16, 2016
BACKING IN

October 14, 2016
ON THE BRINK
Union control their playoff destiny heading into Sunday's match against OCSC

CHESTER, Pa. – When the Philadelphia Union earned a clean sheet with a resounding 2-0 victory over Sporting Kansas City on Aug. 27, a playoff berth seemed like a sure thing. Fast forward to mid October and the postseason is hardly a lock.


October 13, 2016
EYES ON THE PRIZE
Union have two games left to jockey for playoff position

The Philadelphia Union can finish as high as fourth place in the Eastern Conference. They can also come in fifth or sixth place. Oh, and have we mentioned that they could also wind up out of the playoffs?


October 6, 2016
VALUABLE VACATION
Bye week gives Union tie to rest and recover before facing Lions and Red Bulls

TIME TO TURN THINGS AROUND
Union need points against Red Bulls on Saturday

What a monumental challenge. The Philadelphia Union are winless in the month of September (0-2-2) and they’ve slipped to fourth place in the Eastern Conference with a record of 11-11-9 and 42 points. And on Saturday (7:00 pm, Comcast) they’ll have to wrap up a difficult three-game road trip against the hottest club in the league.


September 29, 2016
BIG SENDOFF

FACING THE BIG GUNS

September 22, 2016
PHILADELPHIA UNION NOTEBOOK

Josh Yaro won’t be available when the Philadelphia Union travel to Toronto FC on Saturday. That became official when the Union rookie defender was issued a straight red card in the waning minutes of last Saturday’s 2-1 loss to the Portland Timbers.


September 17, 2016

September 16, 2016
ROUGH ROAD AHEAD

September 3, 2016
BIT OF A LETDOWN
