Saturday MLS preview: Union return to Chester, Atlantic Cup decider…

Posted on 10 July 2010 by Breton Bonnette

The Philadelphia Union return to Chester for a second game in their new digs as the season really starts to heat up. Games vs. San Jose, Celtic FC, Toronto FC, and English giants Manchester United highlight a homestand that will help Union fans get over their World Cup withdrawal. First up, however, will be to solve a hardworking San Jose squad that sees itself above .500 for the first time since returning to the league several years ago. Seb Le Toux and Danny Mwanga hope to continue their impressive form as the Union’s quest to get back to breakeven starts in earnest. Breton Bonnette reports from the City of Brotherly Love.

The New York Red Bulls return home after a lengthy absence themselves. Red Bull Arena is old hat for the team by now, but not for the visiting DC United. The team from the nation’s capital are no longer playing like a last place club and have a number of new signings to integrate into the squad. Chris Snear updates us on that situation. Meanwhile, Red Bulls rookie sensation Tim Ream was the featured guest on a podcast co-hosted by ASN’s New York correspondent. Listen to that here.

The Kansas City Wizards (3-7-3) will host Chivas USA (3-9-2) at CommunityAmerica Ballpark with both teams hoping to turn around their disappointing seasons. The Wizards, currently in 5th place in the Eastern Conference, have won only once (a 2-0 home win over Philadelphia on June 10) since back to back victories in the opening two weeks of the season. Chivas USA just snapped a six game losing streak in league play last weak with a 1-1 draw at home to Philadelphia. Nate Brinson reports from Kansas City.
