The Union are scheduled to play their second home game of the season at PPL Park on Saturday night at 6, and they will be facing a San Jose Earthquakes team that has not won in its last five games. But the 5-4-4 Earthquakes, who have not beaten a team since a 1-0 win over Seattle on May 22, tucked in two draws against very good teams - Columbus and Salt Lake - in going 0-2-3 in their last five games. For the 3-7-2 Union, a big goal will be extending their 2-0-1 home unbeaten streak and earning their first three-match unbeaten streak of the season.

Landon Donovan scored both goals as the Los Angeles Galaxy beat the Colorado Rapids, 2-0, last night to advance to the MLS title game. The Western Conference champion Galaxy will play either the New England Revolution or the Chicago Fire in next Sunday's championship game in Frisco, Texas. New England and Chicago meet today in the Eastern final in Foxborough, Mass. Donovan, who scored in the middle of the first half and late in the second half, has developed a reputation of being ordinary in the regular season and unstoppable in the playoffs.

Danny Califf has international experience with the U.S. national team and has won championships in Major League Soccer. That combination was too much for the Union to pass up, as the team yesterday announced it signed the 29-year-old defender. He last played with FC Midtjylland in the Danish Superliga. "At this point in my career - being a veteran - I'm quite comfortable being asked to take on a leadership role," the California native said. "I am so excited to work with American kids, who, like me, have come through the U.S. national team system.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. - Despite playing without two of their defensive stalwarts, the Union registered only their second shutout since the beginning of May in a scoreless draw with the San Jose Earthquakes at Buck Shaw Stadium on Saturday. Although there weren't any goals scored in the game, there was plenty of drama off the field, as Peter Nowak made a number of changes to what had been a fairly consistent starting lineup in recent weeks. One move was expected: Gabriel Farfan started at left back after Jordan Harvey was traded to Vancouver for allocation money on Thursday.

The Union debut of two-time Algerian World Cup goalie Rais Mbolhi was upstaged Sunday night by the offensive brilliance of Sebastien Le Toux. With a goal and three assists, Le Toux was the catalyst in a 4-2 Major League Soccer win over the San Jose Earthquakes. Among the 17,421 at PPL Park was 76ers first-round draft choice Joel Embiid. Andrew Wenger added two goals for the Union, now 7-9-9 (30 points). They are one point out of the fifth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot with nine games left.

While each of the seven final Major League Soccer games for the Union take on a high degree of urgency, they really enter a dangerous situation Sunday when visiting the San Jose Earthquakes. That's because the Union will face a team seemingly in a more desperate situation than they are. Five teams in both the Eastern and Western Conference will make the playoffs. The Union begin the weekend in a deceptive fourth place in the East, just two points ahead of the teams tied for fifth, New England and Houston.

Despite being just 25 years old, midfielder Shea Salinas has carved a well-traveled path in Major League Soccer, and now he is back to where he started. A member of the Union's inaugural team in 2010, Salinas was enjoying a breakout season this year with the San Jose Earthquakes until he was wrestled down by the New York Red Bulls' Rafael Marquez in a 2-2 tie on April 14. Besides the hard tackle, Marquez kicked Salinas when he was down. (Here is the link to the play: http://bit.ly/JDybax )

The Union can take consolation in recent Major League Soccer history, which shows overcoming a deficit after trailing following the first of two games in an aggregate-goal series is not impossible. After losing to the Houston Dynamo, 2-1, on Sunday at PPL Park in Chester, the Union must at least make up one goal in the second game Thursday at Houston to stay alive in the MLS Cup. The team with the most goals in the two-game Eastern Conference semifinal will advance to the weekend conference final.

Bobby Convey hopes that his second Major League Soccer game in his hometown is as successful as his first. Convey and his San Jose Earthquakes team will visit the Union in Saturday's 4 p.m. matchup at PPL Park. A Northeast Philadelphia native who attended Penn Charter, Convey had the game-winning assist in the 90th minute as the Earthquakes defeated the Union, 2-1, last July. "It was great for me," Convey said about last year's game during a phone interview earlier this week.
