Your daily Soccer links are below. I will try to get these up each morning by 7:00 AM, but if the news day is slow i might just push it back to later in the day or even for the next morning post so its just not two or three links in a post. You can also use this post as a discussion thread for the day and talk about anything you want.
A good breakdown of the game winning goal scored by Jack McInerney against New England.
The MLS have finally released player salaries for the league. Sadly Freddy Adu is the 19th highest payed player in the league. The Union also rank 11th in total salary out of 19 teams.
The Union have played five less games then the Impact, and a win tomorrow will put them only one point behind
It took just eight games and fewer than two months for Union striker Jack McInerney to go from forgotten prospect to the team's most valuable offensive player.
Soumare's knee seems to finally heal, and he could potentially make his debut for the club this weekend. This would potentially bump Okugo out of the starting 11, unless he is inserted into Gomez's spot in the lineup.
D.C. United is looking to build a new stadium. They are currently talking with both Baltimore and D.C. as they decide where to build the new Soccer Specific Stadium. It's nice to see MLS teams getting soccer specific stadiums built, because every team deserves one.
The Union travel to Montreal for the first time ever this Saturday, four points behind the Impact with a whopping five games in hand. It's a prime opportunity to close the gap on Jesse Marsch's expansion club, which is continuing to find its feet.
The Philadelphia Union head to Montreal hoping the momentum from home wins can carry onto the road
