Just because I feel like I should post something so perhaps someone will know this thread exists:

Dick Schreuder joins Union as Assistant Coach.

Good luck, Dick.

Union dominating through 20ish minutes @COL but nothing to show for it so far.

edit: btw, the game is streaming on their website for those in the philly area.

down 1-0 now in 58th minute. elliott let his man beat him on the corner. think it might have been a rope-a-dope. colorado kinda sat back absorbing the attack with the wind against them in the first half. union couldn't score and probably feel winded at this altitude. now colorado has come out attacking in the second half.

We lost.

Flipped a lot between Phillies and Flyers, but if the Union were ever dangerous this game, I missed it.

Didn't watch but Taylor twellman said we were the better team in first half. Not sure about second. First goal was essentially flukey (bounced perfectly off dwyer's back). But the second goal was all Elliott. Gotta deal with that.

@JTansey90

The Union are tied for first in #MLS in time spent in the opposition third. per WhoScored. They've spent 34 percent of games in the attacking third. They are third in MLS in inaccurate crosses per game at 18.4, also third in crosses per game at 23. #DOOP

Never like to see "embarrass" in the headline:

Dom Dwyer, Orlando City embarrass Union in 2-0 loss

Here is some really good/interesting analysis from Adam Cann over at PSP (who is soon going to write for the Union):

Union signed a French speaking guy from the Steel who never actually played for the Steel but he's our new #5.

We actually won a game and scored three goals (as many as we had in first six games combined)! I admit I turned this on, saw we were down 1-0, and figured HWGA, so I caught none of the fun.

Maybe this will draw me in for the next one.
