The Union acquired midfielder Danny Cruz on Thursday from D.C. United for forward Lionard Pajoy. The newcomer won't need an extensive scouting report for his first game with his new team; the Union travel to RFK Stadium in Washington on Sunday to take on United. Acquired by United in January from the Houston Dynamo, the 22-year-old Cruz started 12 of 16 games this season for D.C., notching one goal and three assists. He is a former member of the under-17 national team coached by John Hackworth, the Union's interim team manager.

MIRED IN a season that has fallen well short of expectations, the Union fans who made the trek to PPL Park Thursday night were given a rare treat. They got to see Lionard Pajoy, the team's joint leading scorer coming into the game, in the starting lineup. There was a slight problem, though: Pajoy was starting for the other team. It's been that kind of year for Union fans. Pajoy has been on D.C. United's roster since the middle of last month, when the Union traded him to a team that is in the thick of the playoff race.

WASHINGTON - He has been with the Union for only about 48 hours, but when speaking, he already refers to his new team as "we," "us" and "ours. " Danny Cruz, the latest Union signing in the deal that sent Lionard Pajoy to D.C. United, made an emotional return to RFK Stadium to start Sunday night's match for his new club - against his former. He played 57 minutes in his debut for the Union, before succumbing to leg cramps. "I think emotions were running high from the beginning," Cruz said.

Despite applying pressure all evening, the Union were done in by one of their former players in Thursday's 1-0, Major League Soccer loss to D.C. United in front of 16,024 at PPL Park in Chester. The loss was a microcosm of the Union's season, with the home team doing everything conceivably possible except scoring. Lionard Pajoy, who was traded by the Union to United on Aug. 16, scored in the 67th minute. While still mathematically alive for a playoff berth, the Union (7-14-6, 27 points)

For the first half of Sunday's Major League Soccer game, Union forward Jack McInerney was everywhere on offense. He easily ran through the Toronto defenders and seemed to be a step ahead of their entire back line. Though McInerney did not find the back of the net, his spark up top helped the Union defeat Toronto FC, 3-0, at PPL Park in Chester. "One of the guys that is making the offense happen right now is Jack," forward Antoine Hoppenot said. "He's been giving us a lot of energy.

MONTREAL - The Union have turned plenty of heads across Major League Soccer with their run of good results since firing Peter Nowak. But that success has come with a caveat. While their only home loss since then was interim team manager John Hackworth's first game in charge, they've also lost two of their three road games in that span. Saturday night's trip to a rowdy Stade Saputo was an opportunity to prove their potential to make a late run for the playoffs. Thanks in part to a Montreal player who grew up on the edge of the Philadelphia region, the Union failed to do so. Lititz, Pa., native Andrew Wenger slammed a header past Zac MacMath in the 44th minute, and Brazilian midfielder Felipe hit a spectacular sideways volley in the 78th minute to deal the Union a 2-0 loss.

For many, Veterans Day was merely a day off. For others, it allowed for reflection upon the generations of Americans who have gone overseas to protect our nation's freedom. But for Union midfielder Danny Cruz, military holidays are consumed by one unrelenting fact. His father, Army Sgt. First Class Alejo Cruz Jr., who goes by Al, is in harm's way in Afghanistan. "It's something you think about every single day," Danny Cruz said. "But as time goes on, I try to understand that this is what my father is passionate about.

WASHINGTON - Jack McInerney's value to the Union can be illustrated in one simple statistic: Every time he has scored a goal this year, the team has either won or earned a tie. That trend continued in Sunday's 3-2 road win over D.C. United in a Major League Soccer match in front of 12,349 at RFK Stadium. McInerney scored twice, raising his team-high total to six. The Union are 3-2-2 overall and 3-0-2 in MLS when McInerney scores. "I was kind of hoping I would get three tonight," McInerney said, smiling but not kidding.

In more than any other professional sport, soccer coaches have more say about the makeup of the roster that they go into a season with. Soccer coaches aren't even called coaches. They are "team managers," and their responsibilities are as much about putting a team together as they are about directing one. If former NFL coach Bill Parcells had been a soccer team manager, he would have never had to of made his famous comment, "They want you to cook dinner; at least they ought to let you shop for some of the groceries.
