    The Union won yesterday? How did I miss that? 🙂 🙂
    .
    BTW, while scoring 3 goals was awesome, the “Away” goals rule can only hurt the Union. It will only come into play if the Union lose by 3 goals and can then only go against Philly since a 0-3 loss next Tuesday would mean PK’s while any other 3 goal loss would mean that Atlanta has at least 4 away goals.

  2. Wow, reading Atlanta’s ratings for them you would not think they had their worst result at home ever. Awesome win for the Union. Helps having perhaps the best MLS keeper ever.

    • their team gave up 3 goals but they give their defenders an average rating of 6? I guess they’re allowed to grade on a curve? or maybe I’m just a negadelphian, but when my team gets smoked like that…

    One. Preferably the first to demonstrate how futile getting on the airplane to philly ….was.

  4. Seeing rumors that Jesse Marsch will leave RB Salzburg for RB Leipzeg.
