Philadelphia Union

Our own Mike Servedio will be on the scene in Atlanta tonight — you can follow along with his coverage on the PSP Twitter account. Thanks to our supporters on Patreon for making it possible for us to send a writer to what may be the most consequential game in Union history.

Will Philly’s defense give them a chance in Atlanta?

The Five Stripes are weary of the Union’s grit.

Flexibility to overcome injuries is key for both sides.

    in light of the NYCFC loss last night, my hopes and desires for tonight have changed. On short rest and banged up. After 2 hours of grueling footy not 4 days ago…. this morning
    ~
    ‘in the cool shade of the banana tree
    on a rugged trail toward the balcony
    a child of the 20th century
    a dried of Goliath and a weasel named Fee….’
    .
    I have waken from the coma, happy to be alive, I am Adrian pulling Rocky close, with that smile and glint in the eye, Micky in the corner, the old man smell of a loyal servant not showered in three long days…….
    .
    “Win. Win.”
    .
    .
    ‘Trying to live a life
    that is completely free
    your racing with the wind
    your flirting with death
    so have a cup of coffee
    and catch your breath….
    .
    whoa oh o oh Fee.’
    .
    “What are we Waiting for?”

  3. Anyone going to Yard’s tonight?

  4. Right now, I just want to hear Oh, Canada one more time at Talen Energy Stadium this year.

  5. Tonight’s match it is vital Blake comes to play. We will need some big saves and lately he has put this team in a hole with his indecisive positioning, keeping our backline in all sorts of shambles. Santos up top with Aaronson CAM is also a key move.

    LETS GO BOYS IN BLUE!!!
