Philadelphia Union v. NE Revolution

Philadelphia Union Top New England 1-0

Chester Pa- The Philadelphia Union won 1-0 over New England at PPL Park Saturday. The team may be out of the playoff picture, but they are making a run of their own, winning for the third time in the past four games. The Union’s front man, Jack McInerney, scored the game winner for the Union in the 73rd minute. The goal was a strong header into the upper left corner, as McInerney connected on a Keon Daniel free kick cross. With that goal, McInerney has scored a goal in the past three matches, after not scoring for nearly two months.

Is Jack Mack back?  The mid-season McInerney looked like an all-star at times with some brilliant one touch finishes. I asked Jack McInerney about getting back into the groove and scoring a goal in the last three matches, and he said, “It feels good, it’s rising my confidence and it’s good for the team ’cause  it’s been a tough season, but if we end it on a good note, everyone’s going to be happy.”

Keon Daniel played one of his best games in a Union jersey; he was present on both ends of field for much of the match. He took over the free kick duties tonight, as Freddy Adu was unavailable for the third straight game, and sent three perfect balls into the box.  Only one was connected on by a Union player, and it was the game winner that he set up for McInerney.  Manager John Hackworth said it was the best game he has seen Keon Daniel play for the Union. Hackworth also went on to say he believes Daniel has been the best player on the field for his country of  Trinidad and Tobago in its recent World Cup Qualifiers.

The Union have just one more home game remaining, which is against I-95 rivals, the New York Red Bulls on October 27th. Philadelphia has two road stops before the season finale, with games against Houston on October 20th and October 24th at Kansas City.

Philadelphia Union v. Columbus Crew

Union Comeback Comes Up Short In Columbus

Columbus, Oh – The Philadelphia Union trailed 2-0 at the half but battled back to tie the game 2-2 with about 5 minutes to go. The Crew scored the game winner a minute after Jack McInerney evened the game. The loss mathematically eliminates the Union from making the MLS playoffs. The third year club made playoffs last season after spending most of the year near the top of the table. This year Philadelphia never could get things rolling which lead to the firing of the Union’s outspoken manager Peter Nowak. Also the team made several trades and the Union look nothing like the team from 2011.

As the team moves on to the off-season will manager John Hackworth continue to mix up the line-up? I believe so since there are a lot players on the reserve side that could use some meaningful minutes. This also is a chance for Hackworth to build for 2013, the fans want results but now is the time to get playtime and experience. It it always a painful time when a team is eliminated from the playoffs and hurts even more when the team loses so many games by one goal. On the upside they last time the Union scored two or more goals in a game was their July 4 and 8 wins over LA and Toronto. Danny Cruz also scored his first goal for the Union since joining the club August 16 in a trade with DC, and Jack McInerney’s goal was his first goal since July 29.

The Union have five games remaining on the season, with two of them home matches Oct. 6 against New England and the season finale Oct. 27 as rivals New York come to town. Philadelphia will not play post season soccer but the team can play spoiler and knock teams out of the playoffs also to some players it is playoff soccer as they will play for jobs next year.

Philadelphia Union v. Houston Dynamo

Union Find Their Offense In 3 -1 Win Over Houston

Chester, Pa – The Union have solved their scoring drought for one game at least. Philadelphia were winless and hadn’t score more than a goal since July 29th. Tonight they found a way to score three goals against a strong Houston team. Manager John Hackworth shook up the line-up again, starting five different players from the last game on Thursday. The Union were determinded to get a result today as it was their second to last home stand in Philadelphia.

The Union attacked early and often to start the match. Philadelphia knew coming in that Houston would be up for a dog fight as they continue to push for a playoff berth. Also, Philly had not had favorable results against Houston as of late, coming into the game today with three losses dating back to last season against the Dynamo when they knocked the Union out of the playoffs.

Philadelphia, looking for their first win since July 29th, were hungry to end the drought.  Hackworth started under utilized Josue Martinez up top with Freddy Adu and Danny Cruz, who making deep runs in support. Adu’s early presence and hard work paid off when he took a deflected ball off the touchline and worked it just outside the 6-yard box. He blasted a low shot into the back of net to put the home side up 1- 0 in the 28th minute.

Houston battled back seconds before the half and caught Philly’s solid back-line off guard when Oscar Boniek García took a flick-on into the box. He took a quick touch in the box and slammed his shot off the far back post, tying the game at 1-1. The Union and their fans were in shock. The Philadelphia defense had played very well up until that point and keeper Zac MacMath did now have much work to do until the goal.  Philadelphia and Houston went into the break all tied at 1-1. As the players left the pitch, the Union full-backs were seen talking about the goal and addressing it right away. Hackwork said after the match that he really didn’t need to address this issue as he saw and heard the players speaking about it.

The Union came out in the 2nd half with even more energy than they had to start the match. The Union were all in to get the 3-points.  Philly pushed numerous players up on the attack. During a Union corner kick in the 50th minute, full-back Sheanon Williams was pulled down in the box and the Union were awarded a penalty kick. Stepping up to take the kick was Freddy Adu. Adu sent his shot high and to the left, well out of Houston’s Tally Hall’s reach. This put the Union up 2-1. Right after the kick, Adu came to the sideline and seemed hurt.  Later, we were told Adu hurt his hip during the PK. Philly was then forced to use its first sub and brought on Keon Daniel to replace Adu.

Keon Daniel’s night only lasted 9 minutes as he took a knock and was forced out of the game as well. Hackworth was forced to use another sub and brought on his spark-plug forward Antoine Hoppenot. Hoppenot, the surprise rookie for the Union, inserted his work ethic right away. He was a factor for the remainder of the match, as it seems he is best fit as a sub to trouble the tired legs of opposing defenses.

The Union, looking hard to ice the game, found a goal in the 70th minute from Josue Martinez as he put away a deflected Amobi Okugo shot to put 3-1 to Philadelphia. Okugo’s delfected shot came from a cleared corner kick by the Houston defense.

Philadelphia held on tight fot the next 20 mintues as Houston never seemed to even threaten for the rest of the game. The Union picked up their first win and first goal from a forward since July 29th. The team’s next two matches are on the road as they face Columbus next Saturday Sept. 29th and wrap up with a mid-week stop in Chicago on Oct. 3.

Philadelphia’s next home match is Oct. 6 as the Union will host New England. Also, all fans in attendance this afternoon can go to Great Clips within the week for a free haircut since the Union scored 3 goals.

Philadelphia Union v. DC United

The Union’s Winless Streak Extends To Eight Games

Chester, Pa- The Philadelphia Union were dropped 1-0 by I-95 rivals DC United. The Union continue to struggle up front. Philadelphia controlled nearly 60% of the possession but just couldn’t find the back of the net. Being shut out and/or losing one goal games in which they dominate seems to be a recurring theme in 2012. John Hackworth hasn’t thrown in the towel, he is trying to mix up his line-up, but the end results seem to be the same. Tonight Hack started his two spark-plug strikers Antonie Hoppenot and Jack McInerney hoping this would end the scoring drought for Union strikers. Coming into the match a Philadelphia forward has not scored a goal since July 29th, a game in which McInerney scored. Ironically it was also the last time the Union won.

The lone goal in the game came from a wide open Lionard Pajoy in the 67th minute. Pajoy collected a cross from Maicon Santos at the penalty spot, trapped the ball and slammed it into the back of net. Pajoy was traded from the Union to DC United a month ago for midfielder Danny Cruz, it always seems in the world of sports that an unwanted player gets the last laugh against his former team. The unwanted forward in Philly has tasted some glory in DC’s system. The win is huge for DC as they are fighting for a playoff spot, and it looks a lot brighter for them now since Sporting KC beat New York last night 2-0. Speaking with DC keeper Bill Hamid tonight he said that Philly really brought it hard to him but he was able to stay sharp and make the key saves when needed. The Union put 4 close shots on goal and one from long range and Hamid covered them all. Hamid has been tipped by some as the future keeper for the US National team.

The only bright side for the Philadelphia Union is the quick turn around as they host the Houston Dynamo this Sunday at 4 PM at PPL Park. Speaking with several Union players after the match they agreed when you have a bad match it is key to get some training in and get right back on the field. This is also the time of the year that you have guys fighting for jobs so look for the Union to mix it up on Sunday. A player to watch is Danny Cruz as he was traded from Houston to DC in the off-season. He said he is really looking forward to this match and can’t wait to play Sunday.

Philadelphia Union v. Toronto FC

Toronto, ON-  The Philadelphia Union and Toronto FC played to a 1-1 draw. Both teams are pretty much out of the playoff picture, but the players were playing for their jobs and pride.  The teams squared off in a very physical game that saw 32 fouls called and a lot of trash talking after the whistle. When two teams that are at bottom of the table and face each other there is always tons of built up anger from a season that just isn’t going as planned. Toronto only picked up its first points on the year after 9 games, and it happened back in the late spring when TFC beat the Union 1 -0. It also happened to be the last time the Union were coached by Peter Nowak.

The Union looking to get a result on the road for the third straight game; they came into the match with a lot energy after a lengthty International break. The Union haven’t played a league match since Sept 1 when they tied the Revs 0-0 in New England. Toronto looked to have control of the game as they scored a 58th minute goal from Eric Hassli. The play was set up with a long ball played into the Union’s half. Upon further review  it appeared Toronto FC was offsides. But the play stood and Toronto scored. TFC seemed to be happy with the slim lead and decided to park the bus the rest of the way on.

The Union did not want to leave Toronto pointless in two matches. Philadelphia made a late and final substitution by bringing on Roger Torres, he added a spark to the team and inserted himself into the action right away. Just when all hope seemed lost Sheanon Williams left footed shot from very close range to the centre of the goal found the back of the net. The goal was set up in the 85th minute from a Antoine Hoppenot cross.

Philadelphia who remain winless since July look to rebound this Thursday night as they host I-95 rivals D.C. United. The game should be a battle as there is no love lost between the two teams.
