Recap:
Hoffman, Union topple Schalke 2-1 in friendly



CHESTER, Pa. – It doesn’t count toward the standings, but the Philadelphia Union did two things they haven’t been able to do much of this season: employ a dangerous offensive attack and earn a win.

And they did so against a well-known team that recently wrapped up a third-place finish in the German Bundesliga.

On Wednesday night at PPL Park, rookie striker Chandler Hoffman scored the game-winner in the 88th minute to send Philly to a 2-1 victory over FC Schalke 04, who were playing their first game in the United States since 1963

Adu show abruptly cut short by sending-off in Union loss


CHESTER, Pa. – For 42 minutes on Sunday, it was the Freddy Adu Show at PPL Park. And then, just like that, the show got cancelled.

After playing what he called “his best game with the Union by far,” Adu (above left) hit the showers early after getting shown his second yellow card for a simulation in the penalty box.

Down a man for the entire second half, the Union ended up dropping a gut-wrenching 3-2 decision to the rival Red Bulls.

“I was very disappointed because I thought things were going well up to that point,” Adu told MLSsoccer.com. “We had them on their heels. It was the best we played all season and I really thought we'd pull out a win.”

Philadelphia deal first-ever pick Mwanga for Timbers' Perlaza


The Philadelphia Union traded away another of their expansion originals on Wednesday, swapping the franchise’s first-ever MLS draft pick in Danny Mwanga to the Portland Timbers for speedy striker Jorge Perlaza.

Mwanga, 21, played prep soccer in Portland and starred at Oregon State before the Union used the top pick in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft to grab what most considered was the best young attacking player available. He scored seven goals and added four assists during his rookie season and another five goals and four assists during the team’s run to the postseason last year, but has struggled for playing time in 2012 and has yet to score a goal this season.

“It is a wonderful opportunity for me to come back to my hometown and play in front of family and friends,” Mwanga said in a statement. “I’m excited, and I can’t wait to get out to Portland and get to work. I’m proud to be a member of the Portland Timbers.”

Say what you will about Peter Nowak, but he certainly had an eventful tenure as Philadelphia Union manager. Here are some of the highs and lows of the past three years:

New Union boss John Hackworth firm:
"I'm not Peter Nowak"



CHESTER, Pa. – John Hackworth has been a loyal deputy, a trusted advisor and a good friend to Peter Nowak for the past three years.

But in the wake of the news that Hackworth was replacing Nowak as Philadelphia Union manager, the new man in charge wanted to make one thing clear.

“I can tell you that I’m not Peter Nowak,” Hackworth said. “I’m John Hackworth.”

What does that mean exactly? Will he implement new tactics and shuffle the lineup for his first game as manager Saturday vs. D.C. United at PPL Park (7 pm ET, Galavision)?

Philadelphia deal struggling Pajoy to DC United for Cruz


Interstate 95 foes D.C. United and the Philadelphia Union made a swap Thursday just three days before their Eastern Conference showdown at RFK Stadium, with D.C. sending young midfielder Danny Cruz north for Colombian forward Lionard Pajoy.

The two teams will meet on Sunday in Washington (5 pm ET, NBC Sports Netowrk), with D.C. currently sitting in the fifth and final spot in the playoff standings and the Union looking to climb back into the postseason picture.

The trade ends an unexpectedly short stay in Philadelphia for Pajoy (above), who joined the club in February after a career year with Colombian side Itagüí Ditaires. His success in the Colombian first division, however, never quite translated to MLS, and he finishes his career with the Union with five goals and two assists in 20 appearances.

The Big Come Up

Philly end 8-game winless skid, stop Houston 3-1 at PPL Park



CHESTER, Pa. – The Philadelphia Union’s offense woke up just in time to deal a big blow to the Houston Dynamo’s playoff aspirations.

Paced by a Freddy Adu brace and the first career goal from Josué Martinez, the Union broke out of a long offensive drought to top Houston, 3-1, on Sunday at PPL Park.

With the result, the Dynamo drop to 12-8-10 and remain in fifth place in the Eastern Conference, just one point clear of Columbus Crew for the final playoff spot.

The Union, who were knocked out of the playoffs by Houston last year, improve to 8-14-6 and avoid being mathematically eliminated from
postseason contention, which would have happened with a loss or a draw.

Recap:
Union attack ambushes listless Fire in 3-1 win



BRIDGEVIEW, Ill. – The Philadelphia Union put a serious crimp in the Chicago Fire’s plans for home-field advantage in the postseason, outclassing the home side on Wednesday night in a 3-1 victory at Toyota Park.

And it happened almost from the start, with a fired up Union putting Chicago on their heels from the whistle.

They found net in the seventh minute when Union forward Danny Cruz found Jack McInerney with a through pass that split the Fire defense. McInerny beat goalkeeper Sean Johnson to score his team-leading sixth goal of the season.

City Islanders, Union Announce Tryouts
Joint-event to be held December 18-19 in Palmyra, Pa.



HARRISBURG, Pa. -- The Harrisburg City Islanders have teamed up with Philadelphia Union of Major League Soccer (MLS) once again to jointly host an open tryout December 18 and 19, 2012. The event will be held at In the Net Sports Complex in Palmyra, Pa., the home training ground of the City Islanders.

The two organizations, who are exclusive partners since March 2010, will look to start the player identification process early for the 2013 season.

“Our relationship with Harrisburg continues to pay dividends,” said Philadelphia Union Coach John Hackworth. “These tryouts are a terrific opportunity for us to find players who can compete within our player development structure, and ultimately with the Union first team. We look forward to seeing who turns out for this exciting two day event."

Re: The Philadelphia Union

Red Bulls trade Le Toux back to Philadephia for Martinez


Sébastien Le Toux is heading back home.

The New York Red Bulls on Thursday announced they have traded the former Philadelphia icon and all-time leading scorer back to the Union in exchange for Costa Rican forward Josué Martínez and allocation money.

Le Toux was out of contract with the Red Bulls but, according to a report on Soccer By Ives earlier in the day, re-signed with the Red Bulls only to be traded hours later to the team where he made his name in MLS.
