The Union remain in Tier 4 while future opponents hang out in Tier 1. New York moved up to the top tier and the Galaxy have been holding the #1 spot solidly. Our next 3 games: New York, New York, LA. Hopefully we can split the New York series and catch the Galaxy on an off night. After LA we face defending champs Real Salt Lake. This 4 game stretch is going to be beyond tough for us.
