For SBN Philly: Ignore The Skeptics, Piotr Nowak Has A Sound Goalkeeping Plan

I wrote a piece for SBN Philly about Piotr Nowak's plans for the Philadelphia Union's goalkeeping present and future. Here's a snippet: (the feature itself can be found by clicking here)

The selection of MacMath shows that Nowak is unafraid of past failure and is looking to sure up the future of the team. Far and away the best goalkeeper in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, MacMath is only 19-years-old. Starring for three years at Maryland, the young MacMath managed to amiably fill the large gap left by Seitz in goal at the University and created a legend of his own.

Nowak has decided to go the route of the Philadelphia Flyers but has his depth chart properly planned out. A starter (Mondragon), a career back up who has proven that he can start when needed (Knighton) and a young goalkeeper that could play now but is better served learning from experienced teammates.

Last season I did a lot of game day stuff for SBN Philly but you should start to see a lot more from me about the Union on there this year. Let me know what you think of the article here or there.
