#OldSerbian - Philadelphia Union Tweets Du Jour About Veljko Paunovic

Our friends over at the Unholy Union coined the nickname "Old Serbian" for recently signed Philadelphia Union striker/central attack midfielder Veljko Paunovic on Twitter tonight. Thinking it was perfect in its simplicity and non-subtlety biting nature, both Philly Soccer Page and I thought it was suitable for a hash tag 'campaign' on Twitter.

The following tweets are pulled from the one hour long craze that was #OldSerbian. Enjoy.
