Jonathan Tannenwald, of Philly.com and its soccer blog (that he runs) The Goalkeeper, spoke to the Brotherly Game about United States Mens National Team (USMNT) midfielder Benny Feilhaber. The-26-year-old Feilhaber officially signed with Major League Soccer (MLS).

Allocation order dictates which team gets the first shot at signing Feilhaber at the salary that he, his agent and the league negotiated. Currently Chivas USA sits at the top of the allocation list, with the Philadelphia Union second in that order.

Tannenwald harkens back to 2009 when the Union held DC United's hand to fire and forced Fred and more out of United so that the two teams could switch allocation spots. United ended up with goalkeeper Troy Perkins, who they traded after the 2010 MLS season.
