Despite a collective effort that has put the Union atop MLS' Eastern Conference, goalkeeper and captain Faryd Mondragon will be the only player representing the club in the All-Star Game. Mondragon was among 22 players selected to compete against English power Manchester United at Red Bull Arena on July 27. He was selected by New York coach Hans Backe, who will coach the All-Stars against Sir Alex Ferguson's Red Devils. Mondragon, acquired from FC Cologne in the offseason, has been a considerable upgrade for the Union, holding a 0.84 goals-against average and seven shutouts in 19 matches.

It didn't take long for New York Red Bulls highly touted midfielder Dwayne De Rosario to make an impact. Acquired last Friday from Toronto FC, De Rosario was inserted in the second half of Saturday's 1-1 tie with Houston. In the 47th minute, he recorded an assist on Dane Richards' goal. De Rosario was dealt by Toronto following a contract dispute. He didn't want to get into the matter during a conference call this week, saying that things couldn't be worked out in Ontario and that he was happy to be in New York.

LONDON - New York Red Bulls coach Hans Backe isn't getting carried away by the Major League Soccer outfit's win in a friendly over Paris Saint-Germain. Joel Lindpere's first-half goal gave the Red Bulls a 1-0 win in Saturday's opening match of the annual Emirates Cup tournament in north London, but Backe knows his team still has plenty to prove. The Red Bulls play Arsenal next on Sunday and Backe said that even the return of Thierry Henry and Rafael Marquez, who sat out the opener, may not be enough to disrupt the hosts' free-flowing possession football.

Roger Torres didn't wait long to make an impact on the Union attack, one that benefited from an infusion of young blood.

His goal gave the Union a 1-0 Major League Soccer win over the New York Red Bulls in front of a record PPL Park crowd of 19,027. "I feel very good and am very happy," Torres said.

Even by Union standards, this was a busier than usual day at the office. One that included their first multigoal game of the season, another questionable officiating decision, more defensive lapses, and a trade rumor concerning the team captain. Other than that, things weren't too out of the ordinary for a Union, who lost to the New York Red Bulls, 3-2, in Sunday's Major League Soccer match at PPL Park in Chester. The Union are now 2-6-1 and not much has gone well, but this was by far their best offensive showing and not just because they increased their season total to seven goals - or two fewer than New York striker Thierry Henry, who missed his third straight match with a hamstring injury.

SO THE UNION hasn't exactly gnashed its terrible teeth and we're still waiting for its terrible roar, but on Wednesday night against Schalke 04, the club did release some of its beasts — or demons, depending on how you look at it. For a club that hadn't mustered more than 10 shots on target in its previous two matches, the Union unleashed eight on Schalke, and even scored a pair, the game-winner from the run of play. Now take into account that it was a friendly and the Union showcased only a handful of its starting lineup for a limited time, but its efforts left many wondering where this team, Wednesday night's offensive-minded, take advantage of every opportunity collective has been for the past eight matches?

The MLS summer transfer window ends Aug. 14. Team manager Peter Nowak announced after Friday's 2-1 loss to the visiting Colorado Rapids that Ruiz would be leaving the club.
