Being a Union fan in 2020 means you probably drink a lot of coffee. Of the six games the Union have played, only two of them have not been an early or late kickoff. The U continue their late-night games with another 10:30 p.m. kickoff tonight.

The boys in blue will have a tough task Saturday, when they go up against a guy who knows a thing or two about knockout games Bruce Arena. Arena took over New England Revolution midway through last season. The Revs have a few players to watch out for Gustavo Bou, Adam Buksa and Carles Gil. However, Gil looks to be sidelined for the match because of a foot injury.

For the Union, they look to be at full strength as no one is listed on the injury report. Brenden Aaronson talked about Saturday’s match and said the team is set to keep pushing and focusing on this game. Aaronson also said, “We need to put all our energy into the New England game because we don’t know what’s going to happen after this.”

One thing to note: in the past the Union have played really well against the Revs. Over the past nine meetings, the U have won 7 of those games. The last time the Revs beat the Union was back in 2017! During the nine games the boys in blue have outscored New England 22 – 3. Plus, who cannot forget last season when the Union beat the Revs on May 4, which also saw all three substitutes score.

So, let’s get ready for an afternoon nap, and a few ounces of coffee. Because as the young star said, it may be a while until we have another Doop Day.
