Union hire stadium manager, other morning news

The Philadelphia Daily News has a good look at Philadelphia Union's roster issues that remain unsettled just two days before their first match against Seattle.  

Philly.com has pictures from Monday's practice.

Goal.com lays out a few things the Union could learn from the Seattle Sounders, last year's expansion success story. A pretty good read that looks at the organization more than the playing field.

Sports Illustrated has a season preview of Major League Soccer's Eastern Conference. SI's prediction for the Union? Last place. Ouch.  

The Union have hired a general manager for PPL Park.

 The Chicago Fire waived starting goalkeeper Jon Busch on Monday. He's probably good enough to start for half the clubs in MLS, so the watch will be on to see if someone with questions at goalkeeper (Toronto? New York?) picks him up so soon before the season's start.

ESPN's Leander Schaerlaeckens says the players lost in their labor settlement with management. He's right.
