DCU_Primary_COL PhiladelphiaUnion


The Philadelphia Union have fallen out of the playoff race, but they still have a chance to make an impact on that race tonight when they take on arch-rival D.C. United at PPL Park (8pm, ESPN2).

The Union are still technically alive for a playoff spot, but it will require a lengthy winning streak to make that long-shot a reality. They will look to start that run tonight against a D.C. side that is fighting for the fifth and final playoff spot in the East.

    Can’t believe this guy was ever the national team starter over Sean Johnson.

  2. atd says:

    Someone has kidnapped DC United Bill Hamid and replaced him with US U-23 Bill Hamid.

  3. Darwin says:

    ESPN3 with the blackout gut punch. Wish I could watch this game online.

  4. Darwin says:

    From the sound of it, maybe I’m lucky.

  5. Adrian says:

    It’s been awful–so sloppy.

  6. atd says:

    In Philly’s defense — they only have six good players, five of whom are defenders or d-mids, one of whom is suspended, and the other of whom is Freddy Adu.

  7. Amobi says:

    Hey guys, remember when players like Opara and Assobbugmonde started over Okugo in the Olympics Qs?

  8. atd says:

    Pretty sure Okugo is Philly’s most dangerous offensive player.

  9. Adrian says:

    I think the local high school kids can finish better than this.

  10. atd says:

    Or Bill Hamid.

  11. deepvalue says:

    Pretty cool goal! Vamos!

  12. Adrian says:

    Taylor Twellman is probably the most annoying commentator there is.

  13. deepvalue says:

    Look at Pontius backtracking to his own goalbox to help clear the ball. Call him Jurgen.

  14. Adrian says:

    Not surprisingly Freddy instantly becomes Philly’s best attacking player and other Philly players blow great opportunities served up on platters.

  15. disgraceful game says:

    what’s with yelling the f-bomb only to have the camera right on you. hope that dude gets a major fine

  16. hogatroge says:

    Well, Agbossoumonde wasn’t one of the CBs, but I get your point.

    Why Porter insisted on playing Kitchen on the backline and bringing Okugo in as a late sub is beyond me. But let’s not get started on that debacle. I was this close to forgetting about it.

  17. Nate Dollars says:

    ‘arch-rival’? I didn’t even know we were regular rivals…

  18. Shawn says:

    Really. I saw Freddy manage to sky a shot in the box. He also held the ball too long when passing it early would’ve released players.

    I can see why he has a whopping 3 goals and 1 assist for the season. He’s just not very good right now.

  19. hogatroge says:

    Can’t believe a lot of things about the U23 lineups.

  20. Shawn says:

    You forget what life was like when Harkes was commentating.

    Here’s a match night comment for you ‘ Giles Barnes’. Nuff said.
