Soccer Potpourri

From Peter

    I know some of these articles might be a little dated(in this up to the second digital world). But life has gotten in the way, as it tends to do from time to time, so I haven’t been able to post as often as I might like. Still, I think these pieces remain interesting and time does not dilute their substance.

      After the Weekend Apr 10-11

      Feeling pretty good. As I mentioned in an earlier post, this is the first year I’ve decided to root for a specific MLS team. It’s the Union, since Philly was the last place I lived that has an MLS club. Am just over the moon with the way Philly fans turned out for the home opener. The win was just a bonus. Now I just hope the enthusiasm will remain as the team is likely to experience some difficulties with 7 of its next 8 games on the road as they wait for the completion of their new home, PPL Park. I’ll also be watching closely once PPL Park opens to see if folks will make the short trek to Chester. Philly fans have grown accustomed to ‘one-stop shopping’ for their major teams, all located at the Sports Complex in South Philly. Meanwhile, Go Union!
