The Philadelphia Union must win today if they are to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. Should they win, then they sit back and hope Columbus Crew can defeat New England Revolution and D.C. United can muster at the very least a draw against Houston Dynamo (a win would eliminate all tie-breakers, but that what you can get from DCU and tiebreakers can be in play should DCU simply get a draw).

Last game of the season. Can't hold anything back now (except Jack McInerney, apparently).
