  1. So when are we gonna get the word if fans can go to playoffs or not? Ordered tickets already, but since there’s no more fans at Eagles games, I’m assuming it might not happen. Just wandering if anyone has insight? At least we got to see them win a trophy live this year no matter what!

    • OneManWolfpack says:

      Restriction announced were only for the city. I assume Gov. Wolf or local Chester/Del. Co. authorities would have to make an announcement. I haven’t heard anything as of yet.

  2. Both the Hulk Story and the Africa Cup of Nations story link to the Hulk story.

  3. With the Kai Wagner links on top of Aaronson being sold and possible McKenzie movement, it looks like it’ll be a busy off season for the Union.

  4. Multiple MLS analysts and personalities picking the Union to also win the Cup? Man, times have changed. Pinch me, this season has been such a great ride! And what a thrill it would be to bring home a second trophy before an off-season where there will be some significant changes (aaronson, Wagner,McKenzie, etc). Best, most enjoyable team we’ve had, and I hope it doesn’t end anytime soon.

  5. Parenthetical notes about Olivier Mbaizo, Cameroon, and the now-2021 Africa Cup of Nations.
    The finals will be played in Cameroon, and Cameroon now lead their group with 10 points after their home and away victories over Mozambique.

    • So Mbaizo, for the finals of the tournament, might be away if he returns to the Union for 2021.

    • Cape Verde Islands tied Rwanda in Kigali earlier this morning, 0-0.
      I have not yet managed to find a lineup for Cape Verde for the match. So whether Monteiro played is unconfirmed.
      AS you read this, while Cape Verde are tied with second-place Mozambique on points with 4, the tie-breaker Head-to-Head Away goals puts Mozambique ahead. so as you read this Monteiro would not be going to Cameroon for the finals.
      Cape Verde play Cameroon March 22 2021 and Cape Verde play Mozambique at Mozambique March 30 2021.

  6. MLS’s NIck Rosano posts that Jamiro Monteiro went the full 90 in Cape Verde’s 0 – 0 draw with Rwanda.
