"Are you being serious or are you joking? Because I could look at it from two different perspectives. I don't know, maybe confetti, maybe banners, maybe a parade? Who knows? I have no idea. I am focused on our responsibilities."

-- Philadelphia Union coach Peter Nowak at a press conference upon being asked how Union fans would respond to ex-Union striker Sebastien Le Toux during this weekend's game, his first against at PPL Park since being traded to Vancouver in the offseason. (Soccer by Ives)

"I am sick of this 'face of the franchise' crap. You know who is the face of the franchise? Our fans who come every week to support us. They are the face of this franchise. That's who we play for, not some individual player. I'm not dumb. I know fans loved (Le Toux) and will cheer him, but at the end of the day, it's about the team, our team, and that's where the focus should be."

-- More from Nowak on Le Toux, Philly's leading scorer during its first two season in MLS. (Soccer by Ives)
