Union building to be successful for long term
by Ridge Mahoney on Tuesday, Apr 15, 2014 9:01 PM EDT
[MLS: Week 7] An extensive schedule of 36 Wednesday games begins this week with Philadelphia visiting Red Bull Arena in the first of three meetings this season against its Eastern Conference rival, New York. The Union has played some quality soccer, but its coach, John Hackworth, says a shift in the team's approach -- it is more of a possession team than the defense-oriented squad in 2013 -- needs time to take hold.

Danger Ahead: Charging Goalkeepers
It seems likely to me that Portland Timbers goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts is the bulkiest, heaviest -- simply the largest -- player in MLS.

"The fact is that when you stay on your feet referees don't give penalties. The ref finds it very difficult to give. For honesty there is no reward. So what do I do? A foul is a foul, it doesn't matter whether you go down or stay on your feet. You get slaughtered for diving, but when someone is honest and you don't get what you should get."

-- West Ham coach Sam Allardyce after Matt Jarvis was the victim of a foul by Arsenal's Bacary Sagna but didn't get the call, apparently because he stayed on his feet. (ESPNFC.com)
