Rank and File: Union at FC Dallas

Monday, August 9, 2010, 9:31 PM
The grades are in, and they aren't pretty for Brad Knighton after his first start in Major League Soccer. Knighton's fumble of a loose ball - and ensuing tackle on Brek Shea, which resulted in a red card - led to FC Dallas' first goal and completely changed the momentum of the match. To make matters...

Catching up with the Independence

Saturday, August 7, 2010, 3:56 PM
I have said a few times on here recently that I have not covered the Independence as much as I would like to. I finally got a chance to catch up with the team on Thursday, as many of the players and front office staff came to PPL Park for the Union game. It was good to see them there, and not just...

Nowak rues Union's lack of 'efficiency'

Friday, August 6, 2010, 10:41 AM
With a short turnaround before Sunday's game at Dallas, I don't want to take too much time going over the Union's 2-1 loss to Columbus last night. But I will offer a few quick observations. - Danny Califf was at fault on both goals. Steven Lenhart ran behind Califf on the Crew's first goal, then went... Read more

Rank and File: Union vs. New England

Tuesday, August 3, 2010, 9:30 AM
We only had comments from two voters this week, but they're pretty good ones. Goalkeeper Chris Seitz: 4.17 - "Some have argued that Seitz should't take the blame for the New England goal. Rubbish. If he hadn't committed too soon, we wouldn't be talking about a ball that defied physics."... Read more

Take Two: Union vs. New England

I've got quite a few things to discuss after watching a replay of the Union's 1-1 draw with New England on Saturday. Rank and File will come tomorrow night, then we'll get ready for Thursday night's game against Columbus. - Marco Perovic's goal took one of the strangest bounces I've ever seen on that... Read more
