KYW Philly Soccer Show: Peter Pappas

In the latest edition of the KYW Philly Soccer Show, KYW’s Greg Orlandini, PSP’s Eli Pearlman-Storch, and Kevin Kinkead of CBS Philly/PSP/Philly Voice are joined by Philadelphia Union color commentator Peter Pappas to discuss the Union’s season opening loss to Dallas.

The Union rolled out a lineup with a lot of new faces, with five players making their MLS debut, including three in the backline. It was a tough match for the Union as they went up against one of the best teams in the league. The game’s main bright spot for the Union was the play of goalkeeper Andre Blake, whose athletic saves kept the team in the game.

Pappas talks about where the team went wrong and some of things they can improve on as they get ready to face Columbus Crew in Ohio on Saturday.

  1. i feel like that discussion about rosenberry’s expectations and how much the team hypes him was a little bit overblown. they didn’t really make any huge claims about him or anything- all they did was draft a player possibly higher than he would have gone because they knew they wanted him.

    My thought is to play Gaddis next week just to give Rosenberry to watch a game from the bench. It’s a good chance for him to observe and learn. I’d also play Marquez over Tribbett for the same reason.

    • Zizouisgod says:

      The best way for young players to learn is to actually play rather than watch from the bench, especially when the player (Gaddis) replacing you plays the position totally different.

      If you believe in your young players at MLS level, play them and let them grow as players.
