Re: The Philadelphia Union

Casey coming to Philly

Colorado's all-time scorer comes to Philly for "fresh start"


It wasn’t that long ago when Conor Casey was the “it” guy in Major League Soccer. There was a time in where Casey’s name (and goals being scored at a high rate) were synonymous.

On Friday, the Union selected the former Colorado Rapids forwards with the No. 5 pick in stage two of MLS' re-entry draft in the hopes that finally Philly has the big man on attack it's always yearned for.

Casey had three consecutive seasons (2008-10) where his goal count ended in double digits, with arguably his best season arriving in 2009, when he finished the season with 16 goals in just 24 regular season appearances. The following year, Casey netted 15 more in both MLS regular season play and the playoffs, leading Colorado to its first ever MLS Cup title, in which he was named the MVP. It was the Rapids first appearance in an MLS Cup since 1997, and Casey was instrumental in leading the charge

Newest recruits
Trade No. 29 pick to RSL, nab Okai and two Supplemental picks



INDIANAPOLIS – The Philadelphia Union selected forward Don Anding and Stephen Okai with the No. 26 and No. 31 pick in the MLS SuperDraft inside the ballroom of the Indiana Convention Center. The Union was originally scheduled to select with the No. 26 and No. 29 picks, but traded away its 29th spot to Real Salt Lake, for the No. 31 selection, in addition to two first round selections (No. 12 and No. 17) in the 2013 MLS Supplemental Draft next week.

Anding, 21, a senior forward from Northeastern University, was a 2012 College Player of the Year semifinalist and an NSCAA third team All-American. A native of Amity Harbor, N.Y., Anding was named the Colonial Athletic Association Player of the Year in his junior season (2011) and was the CAA Rookie of the Year in 2009. Anding is considered by scouts to have great speed but Union manager John Hackworth feels his strength is his versatility.

Re: The Philadelphia Union

Salary-cap issues & difference of opinion lead to Union's decision on Adu


WAYNE, Pa. – At some point during this past offseason, Philadelphia Union manager John Hackworth presented Freddy Adu with a clear-cut choice: renegotiate your pricey contract or don’t come back for the 2013 season.

Adu opted for the latter, thereby ending his rocky tenure with the Union after one-and-a-half years. The onetime MLS prodigy is now being shopped to other clubs around the world, according to Hackworth.

“Basically what happened was we presented Freddy with a couple of scenarios that we would feel comfortable with bringing him back,” the Union manager told a group of reporters following the team’s open training session Monday. “Freddy came back and said, ‘Hey I’m going to stick with my current situation and play under the current [contract].’ We made it very clear that was his choice and he has that option. He’s under contract with us. But if he made that choice, then he wasn’t going to be coming back as part of the team.”

While the financials were the driving force behind the divorce – “he’s on a long-term contract that makes it hard for a team in this league with salary cap restrictions,” Hackworth admitted – Adu’s role on the team was another reason why the marriage didn’t last.

Adu made it clear at many points last season that he was unhappy with playing on the wing and constantly being subbed out of the game in the second half. But Hackworth never budged and instead gave the keys of the car to Michael Farfan, who will likely continue to be the club’s top playmaking midfielder in 2013

Union expand on partnership
with Harrisburg City Islanders in MLS-USL Pro merger



Another step in improving soccer development in the United States was announced today as MLS announced a massive merger with the United Soccer Leagues’ Professional Division. The deal will see many MLS clubs field its reserves within USL Pro, giving those players more opportunities to get in real game scenarios.

With MLS ‘ old structure reserve players only saw 10 matches a year spaced out over a nine-month stretch. With this format, teams are housed within the USL Pro schedule providing the opportunity for more than double the matches in a competitive league that many MLS teams, like the Union use as a feeder system to the big show.

Re: The Philadelphia Union

Philadelphia Union 3, New York Red Bulls 0


CHESTER, Pa. – For the first time in 26 months, the Philadelphia Union have beaten the New York Red Bulls.

Conor Casey made sure of that.

Led by a pair of goals from Casey, the Union (7-5-4, 25pts) picked up a 3-0 win over their New York rivals Sunday at PPL Park, moving into a second-place tie with the Red Bulls (7-6-4, 25pts) in the Eastern Conference with a game in hand.

Before Sunday, the Red Bulls, who played nearly 60 minutes with 10 men after an ejection to Lloyd Sam, were riding a five-game winning streak against the Union, who are now 3-6-0 all-time against New York.

Re: The Philadelphia Union

Philadelphia Union's John Hackworth reiterates core of young players will be key to success in 2014


Philadelphia Union manager John Hackworth has gone on the record saying that he hopes to sign around three or four new players this offseason, including at least one marquee acquisition.

But another one of his biggest priorities will be to keep the team’s promising young core intact.

“We have to add the pieces that are essential for us to take the next step,” Hackworth told MLSsoccer.com. “But for the most part, our young core of players is going to lead the direction.”

In 2013, the Union were once again one of the youngest teams in the league. Of the 11 players who logged the most minutes, seven were younger than 25 – a group that included leading scorer Jack McInerney (21), starting goalkeeper Zac MacMath (22) and rising defensive stars Amobi Okugo (22), Sheanon Williams (23) and Ray Gaddis (23).

Re: The Philadelphia Union

Did the Philadelphia Union win the 2014 MLS SuperDraft?
Better Today Than They Were Yesterday



Philadelphia Union – Andre Blake, Pedro Ribeiro and Kevin Cope are all potential starters. Or, at the very least, they're guys who will eat up first-team minutes as soon as MatchDay 1 of this coming season.

And then with their final pick of the day they took an honest-to-goodness left-footed soccer player in Robbie Derschang. This is pretty much the exact opposite of last year's performance from the Union.

Re: The Philadelphia Union

Report:
Philadelphia Union finally come to terms with USMNT midfielder Maurice Edu



The latest US national team star appears to be on his way to MLS.

Goal.com reported on Friday that the Philadelphia Union’s lengthy pursuit of Maurice Edu has come to an end, with the Stoke City midfielder agreeing to terms with the Union and MLS. He follows in the footsteps of current USMNT mainstays Michael Bradley and Michael Parkhurst, who left European clubs earlier this month for MLS.

The report comes on the heels of Union manager John Hackworth telling media earlier Friday, on opening day of the team’s preseason camp, that he was hoping to have an agreement with Edu finalized any day.

ESPN’s Taylor Twellman reported Thursday that Union CEO Nick Sakiewicz was headed to England to put the final touches on the deal.

Re: The Philadelphia Union

2014 Philadelphia Union Preview:
All the pieces are in place in Chester



Leave the past in the past: Most of the Peter Nowak-era contracts – including those for guys who weren't on the roster in 2013 – are finally gone. That cap flexibility means John Hackworth was finally able to carve out the roster to his own specs, filling holes in each segment of the field. If it doesn't work, it's on the new coach, not the old one.
