Philadelphia Union vs. Los Angeles Galaxy - Gamethread - Match #8

New, 64 comments

After last Friday's disappointing road loss, the Philadelphia Union (4-2-1) will look to avenge another disappointing loss they suffered earlier in the season when they host the Los Angeles Galaxy (4-2-4).  Considering the officiating the last time these two teams met, if the official in this match displays that he has the same understanding of soccer as most 8-year olds, it will be worthy of a celebration the size of the Royal Wedding
