Tannenwald explains why two top Union Academy prospects left for Atlanta United.

With injuries and card accumulation for several other backs, we may see mysterious, lost season.

Ridge Mahoney sits down with the youngest coach in MLS, Jim Curtin, who admits that the Union “probably do need to add some difference makers.

Josh Yaro and Marcus Epps are keeping the new Chief Tattoo Officer busy. Yaro’s new tattoo is particularly touching.

Sports Illustrated has been breaking down some of the world’s most interesting club crests. The Union were one of the featured clubs this week.


Jimmy McLaughlin scored for FC Cincinnati to tie Harrisburg City Islanders 1-1.


You’re not the only one who thinks Yankee Stadium isn’t the best venue for a soccer. NYCFC have had an employee devoted solely to finding a new home.

Atlanta United are already in their new stadium, and they seem to like it. Very, very much.

Vancouver moved to the top of the Western Conference with their 3-0 win over Minnesota.

Around the globe

More UEFA Champions League action.

Cristiano Ronaldo scored twice.

So did Harry Kane to bag Tottenham the game against Dortmund. For those of you wondering how Pulisic would fare in the Premier League, this match would suggest “pretty good.”

World Cup tickets go on sale Thursday.

Injuries have made things difficult for USMNT head coach Bruce Arena. Here’s where struggling players are at right now.

USMNT Prospect Erik-Palmer Brown is heading to Manchester City. Here are the details of his deal.


  1. If we continue with the same everything for the remaining games people will lose their mind. With that said, would you rather see the younger players with legitimate chances get starts and playing time in the same union formation and game plan, or have the union try something different in terms of tactics and formation? Combo of both?
    Personally I would love to see a 4-4-2 attempted, with CJ and Simpson up top. CJ can drop some and help collect the ball and use his effort and fitness. I’d like to see Epps and Fafa out wide with Bedoya and Medunjanin (or Jones) in the middle. Back line should include Rosenberry and Marquez.

  2. Looks like the Union are slowly ascending the ranks of the soccer hierarchy. According to fivrthirtyeight they are now the 406th best team in the world. If we finish our season in draws we may be in the 300’s.

    • OneManWolfpack says:

      How are they going up? I mean, I get it – it’s 406 overall – but seriously… how is this team ascending? Mind-boggling…

  3. John P O'Donnell Jr. says:

    Atlanta scoring seven goals last night was fun for the fans but that game on the 30th in New England might be very interesting now.
