  1. Wow, the Union have a new jersey…I had no idea.

    • It’s coming soon! Just you wait!! Don’t mind that it’s been posted for the past week!!! Here’s a shot of some thread!!!! Wait, here you can see the collar!!!!! It’s going to be stupendous!!!!!!

    • ‘Tis the life of the Union marketing dept. under Earnie Stewart, where any news is good news, even a 6-inch picture of jersey stripes.

  2. Looks like Miazga just went for some low hanging fruit.
    .
    On another over reaching incident, that Leeds badge was horrid. I’m glad they decided to change it.

  3. Trying out Pro/Rel at the USL level seems like a great idea. Might even generate a bit more interest in divisions 2 and 3. Should definitely improve competition level at those levels.

  4. I like the homegrown article. My biggest issue is that I don’t think Curtin will listen and play the kids .

  5. I want that nwsl team in philly so badly

    like moneyball

    The manager wanted to keep playing the same player so Billy traded him.

    Curtin has to play the kids because that’s what Earnie has given him to use

    • Which player did Earnie get rid of? This is seriously the worst talking point on this site. I get a lot of people here don’t like Curtin, ut you don’t need to make up things about him. He’s played the kids his entire time.

  8. That Aston Villa tweet-burn of Leeds’ new logo was top notch. Could the Villans possibly be pulling everything together this season….. [praying]

    I gotta admit, I thought the Union’s video officially revealing the new jersey was pretty solid. Their video department does a very good job….
