HARRISON, N.J. - For just a few moments, it seemed that the Union had finally conquered Red Bull Arena, its perennial house of horrors. Conor Casey had scored his first goal for the team, and it seemed Philadelphia might finally get a result in a stadium where it had lost on every previous trip.  But the celebrations among the many Union fans who traveled north didn't last long. Thierry Henry lived up to his billing as the Red Bulls' biggest star, coming on as a substitute to score the decisive goal in a 2-1 Union loss.

THE NEW YORK Red Bulls' position in the standings doesn't necessarily jump off the page, but a simple glance at the MLS statistical leaderboard serves as a reminder of the club's firepower. Bradley Wright-Phillips and Thierry Henry will arrive at PPL Park tonight as the league's leaders in goals and assists, respectively. Thwarting their efforts will be crucial for the Union (4-8-7) in what interim manager Jim Curtin yesterday deemed "a real swing game" regarding the direction of his team's season.

OK, SO if you are a Union fan, what bothers you about this picture? The Los Angeles Galaxy roster includes Landon Donovan, the most recognizable name in U.S. soccer, and Ireland international Robbie Keane, who has 136 goals in the English Premier League on his resumé. The New York Red Bulls have France international Thierry Henry, who won three FA Cups with Arsenal, a UEFA Champions League title with Barcelona and the 1998 World Cup. The Seattle Sounders have USA captain Clint Dempsey, whom they brought back to MLS after six seasons in the EPL. And before the 2014 season began, Toronto signed USA national team star Michael Bradley and England international Jermain Defoe, and brought in Brazil World Cup goal tender Julio Cesar on loan.

HARRISON, N.J. - Before last night's match against New York, Union manager John Hackworth was asked whether he believed Red Bulls forward Thierry Henry had anything left in the tank. The 36-year-old Henry answered that question himself in New York's 2-1 victory. It was Henry who was waited in front of Union goalkeeper Zac MacMath in the 57th minute and notched his second goal of the season, assisted by Eric Alexander and Roy Miller. The Red Bulls added another goal in the 67th minute, earning their first win of the season, while handing the Union its second loss.

THE CURRENT perception of the Union is something CEO Nick Sakiewicz is well aware of. He knows about the narrative floating on Twitter and other social-media sites regarding his franchise - that the organization does not want to spend the money necessary to take it to the next level of competition in Major League Soccer. Never one to hold back his feelings, Sakiewicz bristles at the suggestions. "I kind of chuckle at the idea," Sakiewicz said the other day as he was about to board a flight to Europe.

Union team manager John Hackworth took the high road, which was the best route to travel when talking about the Major League Soccer all-star snub of his entire team, including forward Jack McInerney. It's always easy to say that a player should be an all-star, but not so simple when having to suggest whom he should replace. The forwards selected as all-stars are an impressive group consisting of Marco Di Vaio (Montreal), Thierry Henry (New York), Robbie Keane (Los Angeles), Camilo Sanvezzo (Vancouver)
