INTERNATIONAL ABSENCES: none
ALL-TIME (7 meetings): Union 0 wins, 8 goals ... FC Dallas 3 wins, 13 goals ... Ties 4

LAST YEAR (MLS):
7/4: DAL 2, PHI 1 (Akindele 26; own goal 49 - Okugo 43)
Coaches record: Jim Curtin vs. DAL: P1 W0 L1 D0 ... Oscar Pareja vs. PHI: P4 W2 L1 D1
Projected lineups: From the looks and sounds of things, we should see a very similar lineup that we had last week. Pareja could make one change in this one by putting someone else on the right wing to mix things up a bit but more than likely we'll see the same eleven out there that beat SKC.
Prediction: Like I stated in our game preview, I'm going with a 1-1 draw due to the weather and travel factor. Feel free to provide your prediction below!
What are you drinking?: I'm enjoying this game from one of my favorite local spots in downtown Plano. I have an Old Fashion to get things going but I see a couple beers in my future.
Here you go, comment below. We'll be adding lineups and commentary as we go along here.
