3 Philadelphia Union Questions with SB Nation's Brotherly Game

Our friend Eugene Rupinski stops by to tell us a thing or two about New York City's next opponent.

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Each week we do a Q&A with our friends around the SBNation soccer world to get thoughts on their team from those who know them best. Know your enemy!

This Saturday, New York City FC travels to Chester, PA to take on the feisty Philadelphia Union at 4:00 PM. The Union find themselves tied for second in the Eastern Conference off the strength of some convincing performances against Columbus Crew SC, New England Revolution, and Orlando City.

The team has exceeded expectations so far this season on the strength of strong defense. Their midfield has improved considerably as well, mostly from new additions but also from improved tactical continuity.

Writer and managing editor of Brotherly Game Eugene Rupinski joins us this week to discuss all things Union. Eugene sheds some light on what's got the Union playing so well, what their new signings are doing, and how the fans are feeling about the strong start.
