Important goose news, Adu & Pajoy ready to score

A quick round-up of links you can read to your friends during the tailgate:

Unholy Union has some goose news: Oh…and remember, columbus fans ht a goose and couldnt make it. Chant as necessary. Opposi.g player announcements, instead of “sucks”, yell “goose”

It’s crazy, but Freddy Adu might play a soccer game so it must be time to ask whether this is the moment that he becomes everything he is supposed to be. Is he healthy? Is he happy? Is any team from any other league trying to take him on trial? No? OK, then let’s see an All-Star performance.

The Columbus Dispatch preview notes that the Union are 7th in fouls this year. So that tells us… something?

If you are going to the game today, make sure you walk in a bit early so you can observe the moment of silence for fallen firefighters Lt. Robert Neary and Daniel Sweeney.

Plenty of Union players and fans have taken to Twitter to say they are ready to play today:

Kevin Kinkead’s scouting report on Columbus says the Union need to emulate the possession game the Red Bulls used against the Crew.

Lionard Pajoy says he’s ready to score. It has been 203 minutes since the Union tallied.

  1. OMG, a rational lineup by Nowak!!! Incredible!

  2. If Adu plays like today, I’ll take it. Great game from the 22-year-old. Not sure why Nowak would pull him though. He’s not 14 anymore, Pete. He can play 90.

    • Wow, I thought Freddy played like shite. Offered no support for Pajoy, passing was suspect, lots of stepovers but never beat a guy 1v1. Was yelling at teammates in the first half then pouted & protested when he was subbed out of the match. With all due respect, Adu was crap today.

      • he had a few nice crosses today but i wasn’t totally sold. pajoy def looked lonely. there’s gotta be a way to connect the midfield to him. i’d like to see martinez personally.
