The Washington establishment

Thursday, August 19, 2010, 2:40 PM
The Sons of Ben have been rightly hailed for creating one of the most electric atmospheres in Major League Soccer. But the River End represents only the most recent chapter in the story of Major League Soccer's supporters' clubs. Before Philadelphia, there was Seattle, with its sea of green filling... Read more

Rank and File: Union vs. Colorado Rapids

Tuesday, August 17, 2010, 9:00 AM
For once, we have a full week between Union games. At the moment, there isn't too much news on the field to pass the time with, which from Peter Nowak's perspective is probably just fine. I wonder what tweaks to the lineup and formation we'll see Sunday in Washington. I am sure that many of you will... Read more

Another blown call costs Union a win

Saturday, August 14, 2010, 10:59 PM
Let's get straight to the point: that was a penalty. It looked it in real time, and it looked it every time I watched the replays when I got home from PPL Park. Drew Moor was all over Sebastien Le Toux once Le Toux headed the ball forward, and the contact that he created was more than incidental... Read more

The Union announced this afternoon that famed Mexican club Chivas de Guadalajara will visit PPL Park on Wednesday, September 1 at 8:00 p.m. Chivas are by far the most popular team in Mexico, as they have had a longstanding policy of only having Mexican players on the roster. The club has featured... Read more

Rank and File: Union vs. Real Salt Lake

Thursday, August 12, 2010, 4:32 PM
If you missed my analysis of the game, it's here. There's also a lot of postgame audio from both locker rooms. The one other thing I will say is that I think Danny Mwanga's return made a huge difference. Even though Sebastien Le Toux leads the Union in goals, I think Mwanga might be the team's best...

Some assembly required on Union's set pieces

Thursday, August 12, 2010, 3:32 AM
I will leave it to Union coach Peter Nowak to render a verdict on the officiating and its consequences during last night's 1-1 draw with Real Salt Lake. That is in the audio player below. I will also leave it to Nowak to reflect on the remarkable progress that Danny Mwanga has made in his rookie season... Read more
