Sure, Columbus has taken over the top spot in MLS' Eastern Conference, a spot the Union held for a third of the season. But Nowak asks that with all of the Crew's supersized, high-priced personnel what does it have to show for it? "Look at Columbus and us and compare both teams," Nowak said. "They have big targets that they have paid a lot of money for and what is the production?

While coaches preach that all games are of equal importance, the Union will be excused for taking a different view Saturday when they visit the Columbus Crew. Columbus (10-7-7) is in first place in the Eastern Conference with 37 points. The Union (8-5-10) are in second place with 34 points and have a game in hand. The Union have 11 games remaining and Columbus 10. "It's a big game, a six-pointer," said Union defender Danny Califf. "From here on out, Eastern Conference games are six-pointers with how tight the conference is. " By six-pointers, Califf is referring to the fact that a team receives three points for a win (and one for a draw)

On paper, the Union should have an easy time against the Columbus Crew on Wednesday. But nothing is easy for the Union these days. Although they won the two previous games this year against Columbus, the Crew are playing much better, and last year's MLS Cup finalist is trying to sneak back into the Major League Soccer playoff picture. So the visiting Union are not likely to take Columbus lightly. The Union (9-9-7, 34 points) are in fourth place in the Eastern Conference, in which the top six teams make the playoffs.

Union coach Jim Curtin didn't mince words when speaking Wednesday at his weekly news conference about the path his club's newest addition, Derrick Jones, took to earn the Union badge. Jones, 19, who was born in Bantama, Ghana, became the first player to sign with the first team after starting in 2013 at the Union Academy in Wayne. He followed his time there by his signing last December with Bethlehem Steel FC, the United Soccer League expansion team. Jones, who moved to Philadelphia in 2012 and has dual citizenship with the United States and Ghana, signed Wednesday as a homegrown player, the fourth such player in Union history and first since 2012.

Talen Energy Stadium got a workout over the weekend and Union sporting director Earnie Stewart is not happy about it. After the NCAA women's lacrosse tournament, the pitch needed a little manicuring. Although the field didn't look too bad for Wednesday's Major League Soccer game against the Columbus Crew, it wasn't up to Stewart's standards. "Lacrosse was in our stadium this last Friday, Saturday and Sunday, and it's been difficult for me," Stewart told reporters before the game.
