PORTLAND, Ore. - Maurice Edu didn't get to go to this year's World Cup, but the Major League Soccer All-Star game gave the Union's star midfielder a taste of what his U.S. national team friends experienced. Edu played the second half in the All-Stars' 2-1 win over German powerhouse Bayern Munich. He was tasked with locking down the result after Bradley Wright-Phillips and Landon Donovan helped the All-Stars overturn a 1-0 halftime deficit. That would have been a difficult task no matter who was on the field for Bayern, the reigning Bundesliga and 2013 UEFA Champions League winners.

According to a source within the Big East Conference, Villanova's board of trustees will not hold an anticipated Tuesday vote on whether to move up to Division I-A and join the Big East for football because the conference's football members are not ready to sign off on the Wildcats' plans. The chief sticking point, according to the source, is Villanova's plan to use PPL Park in Chester, the 18,500-seat home of the Philadelphia Union, as its primary venue. PPL Park would be the smallest stadium in the league.

A Bala Cynwyd parking lot operator claims in a federal racketeering lawsuit that officials in Chester City conspired with the owners of the Philadelphia Union and PPL Park to stop the company from operating its lots during the Union's Major League Soccer games and other events. For four games in 2013, the suit claims, Police Commissioner Joseph Bail ordered three ranking officers to close the lots owned by T.I.C.B. Partners by blocking streets with city vehicles or police tape. According to the lawsuit, Bail was also put on the payroll of the company that manages the park and paid $400 for every event he attended there, though it did not specify his duties.
