THIRTY MINUTES before the action began at PPL Park on Saturday night, one by one they trickled in. One man stood when he saw his favorite player leave the tunnel, the back of his jersey reading "Valdes" with what is now an incorrect number. A young boy pointed toward the Colombian defender while he was warming up. One family of four sat near the sidelines with matching jerseys, all representing the Union's lost son. Carlos Valdes returned to Philadelphia for the first time since 2011, and with his homecoming came chants from the raucous Philly fan base, some adding a Colombian flag to a collection hanging from the Delaware River end of the stadium.

AS CEO Nick Sakiewicz and interim manager Jim Curtin sat down in front of the media at PPL Park yesterday, Carlos Valdes paced the room with a wide beam, using both hands to casually slick back his hair. His excitement about returning to the Union was tangible, from the way he strutted to the microphone to his body language as he answered questions. Before answering his first question, he had this to say: "First I want to apologize for my English," Valdes said, laughing, while adjusting his white Union golf shirt.

The Union continue to make major upgrades in an effort to qualify for the Major League Soccer playoffs for the second time in their five-year history. Less than a week after signing Algerian World Cup goalie Rais Mbohli, the Union have brought back defender Carlos Valdes, who had been on loan overseas. In 2011 and 2012 Valdes was a valuable member of the Union's defense. He helped the team qualify for its only postseason berth in 2011 and made the MLS All-Star Game in 2012. Valdes, 29, was a member of Colombia's World Cup team this year and started one game in the team's win over Japan.

Union goalie Zac MacMath has started every game for the last two years, but his role soon will change. When the Union signed two-time Algerian World Cup goalie Rais Mbohli last week, interim manager Jim Curtin said that the 28-year-old keeper would be the starter as soon as he was in game shape. Mbohli didn't make the trip to Kansas City for Friday's 1-1 draw. It's possible he could get his first start in the Union's next Major League Soccer game, Saturday against the Montreal Impact at PPL Park in Chester.

HAD FORMER New York Giants legend Bill Parcells coached a soccer team, he never would have made his famous quote about wanting to "shop for some of the groceries. " The guy leading a soccer team is called a "team manager" and not a head coach because he is generally responsible for all on-the-pitch matters, including player acquisition. Of course, the owner is always the final arbitrator, but rarely does one drastically intervene once a manager is hired. So in soccer, when a manager gets sacked, there is no big debate about the reasons.

THE OFFSEASON acquisitions and strong start to the season brewed optimism among the fan base. But since its home opener on March 15, the Philadelphia Union has gone seven matches without a victory and now is in need of making up points. The quarter mark of the season passed on Saturday, when the Montreal Impact defeated the visiting Union, 1-0, on a rainy day at Stade Saputo. The match marked the second one in a row in which the Philly club failed to score, a 14th-minute goal by Felipe standing as the difference.
