August 13, 2011: Philadelphia Union 2 – 2 FC Dallas

PSP Match Report Highlights

“The Union’s offense was in full rotation as Adu, McInerney, Paunovic and Le Toux took turns up top. The personnel is of little consequence when none of their feet work properly, and that was too often the case in the early going.”

“More points dropped at home, but surviving a rough first half against an in-form side is nothing to be down about.”

PSP Player Ratings and Analysis Highlights

“Adu’s first PPL Park appearance was memorable only in that it showed any player, regardless of stature, salary or skill, may be played out of position.”

“It’s always strange to hear a coach say, “That’s what they do, it’s what we expect” after a match in which it looked like their team was caught off guard.”

May 14, 2011: FC Dallas 2 – 0 Philadelphia Union

PSP Match Reports Highlights

“Philadelphia finished with only five shots total, and only a lonely long range effort from Danny Mwanga actually getting on goal.”

“Le Toux and Mwanga looked to be on the same page early on and their forward runs not only found them in good space, but also opened up room on the flanks for Justin Mapp and Roger Torres to operate.”

PSP Player Ratings and Analysis Highlights

“What was truly disappointing was that the first goal sapped the team’s confidence and made them question themselves. The commitment to offense was gone, and the defensive concentration remained absent.”

“Union management continually reminds us that the bench is filled with young, developing players. Then it puts them in incredibly unique and disconcerting situations (like a 4-2-4 formation).”

PSP Match Report Highlights

“Brad Knighton’s first league start turned into a disaster when he was shown straight red after a failing to control a long ball into the box and taking down Brek Shea.”

“Whoa, Danny Mwanga. Talk about a way to finally stamp your name on a game. Mwanga drilled home a game-tying goal in injury time to give Philadelphia Union a 1-1 draw Saturday against FC Dallas…”

“The Union back four have made about one killer mistake per game that led to a goal, and they would have done it again today if Dallas forward Jeff Cunningham could finish.”
