Philadelphia Union Academy alum Joey Julius levels another return man

+

Penn State kicker Joey Julius, who played for the Philadelphia Union U16 team in the 2012 Generation adidas Cup, again shows he's much more than a converted soccer player with a big foot.

Aodhan Quinn scored a golazo

+

Remember Aodhan Quinn? He was the Union's third pick in the third round of the 2014 MLS SuperDraft and while that may sound fortuitious, it wasn't. Quinn was cut in 2014 and 2015 by the Union. Maybe if he does this in January, the third time with the Union will be the charm.

Fred slapped a guy

The Union lost 1-0 to the Fire out in Chicago and Fred just opened up his hand and hit a player with it. He rightly received a red card, as players aren't allowed to slap other players.

I want to get you pumped

Hi. Teams around MLS are making moves while the Union have been fairly quiet. The Union fanbase seems decidedly unpumped, which is bad, though understandable. I am here to get you pumped, because, as I said earlier, being unpumped is a bad thing to be. Above, you will find a video of Jimmy McLaughlin doing some pretty fun things with a soccer ball--fun things that we might see at PPL Park this season! Enjoy! Please keep watching this video until you are pumped.
