Some good players there in the draft, Philly can start up a good team, IMO. Glad to see we protected the right players, a little unsure about the decision to leave Convey unprotected, but we'll see.

FORZA VECCHIO CUORE GRANATA!

NWO BABY

wow, I wouldn't take one Red Bull player from that list. Boyens would probably be my pick (NZ international). Zimmermann has some potential, but the rest...yikes, Red Bull won't miss any of them p

CHESTER, Pa (November 30, 2009) — Just four days after drafting 10 players from in the 2009 Major League Soccer Expansion Draft, Philadelphia Union have added former Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Chris Seitz to their roster in exchange for allocation money. Financial terms, as per club policy, are not disclosed.


“We are extremely excited about acquiring Chris Seitz who has been in the U.S. Men’s National Team goalkeeper pool and with Real Salt Lake the past three seasons,” said Philadelphia Union Team Manager Peter Nowak. “He’s physically imposing and now has a chance to compete to become a starting goalkeeper in MLS and realize his full potential.”

Union acquire rights to Califf from Dynamo

U.S. national team defender to join Philadelphia from Danish Superliga



CHESTER, Pa. -- Philadelphia Union have acquired the rights to United States Men's National Team veteran Danny Califf. The 29-year old central defender will join Philadelphia Union from FC Midtjylland in the Danish Superliga, after the club acquired his League rights in a trade with the Houston Dynamo for allocation money. As per club policy, details of the deal will not be disclosed.

Califf brings leadership and international experience to Philadelphia Union, having earned 23 caps with the USMNT. In 2009, he captained the side's 3-2 win over Sweden and helped them to a first place finish in the CONCACAF region to earn a trip to the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa.

The Philadelphia Union picks Danny Mwanga #1


With the MLS Combine well underway, one notable absentee has raised some questions. Danny Mwanga (Oregon State), the PAC-10 player of the year, is not in Florida. And now we know why. The Philadelphia Union have reportedly reached a deal with Mwanga to make him the #1 overall pick in Thursday’s MLS SuperDraft.

MLSNet.com reported this development over the weekend, and Union fans are ecstatic. Philadelphia will now add the most dynamic striker in college soccer to their roster. Standing at 6′ 2”, Mwanga has an incredible combination of size and speed that saw him score 14 goals this past season.
