Philadelphia Union enjoyed a fairly successful campaign last season, achieving their aim of making it to the playoffs but stumbled at the first hurdle itself as they bowed out in the knockout round. The biggest news on the transfer front for Philadelphia is Borek Dockal's departure following the end of his loan deal. Dockal had overcome a slow start to emerge as a key cog in Philadelphia's offense last season and will certainly be a big miss though the club has acted quickly to sign Marco Fabian from Eintracht Frankfurt. Other departures include Yaro, Marquez and Rosenberry while Herbers has been traded to Chicago Fire. Aurelien Collin has been brought in to provide experience to a young backline while Kai Wagner and Brenden Aaronson will offer options on the flanks. Consistency has been a problem for Philadelphia under Curtin who will be hoping his side can hit the ground running. There is also a gap in quality beyond the first choice 11 and that is something Philadelphia have struggled to correct during the off-season. However when in form, Philadelphia boast of one of the dynamic attacks in the Eastern Conference and that will be their biggest strength once again with the likes of Fafa Picault and Ilsinho providing pace and guile on the flanks while Burke and Sapong are reliable finishers.

Target


Philadelphia will once again be aiming for a place in the top six of the Eastern Conference with Curtin fancying his side's chances of making an impact in the post season as well

Season Review
2018

№11: Philadelphia Union

Philadelphia Union enjoyed their best season ever as a MLS franchise in terms of points picked up but coach Jim Curtin will see it as a chance missed out as they once again failed to make it past the knockout round of the playoffs. Philadelphia ended the regular season with 50 points, their best performance since gaining entry into the MLS but things would have been even better were it not for a poor first half of the campaign that saw Philadelphia register just five wins until June. Things did improve for Philadelphia in the second half of the season led largely by Borek Dockal finally acclimatizing to the pace of the league and the midfielder formed an excellent partnership with Corey Burke and Fafa Picault, with the duo ending the campaign as joint top scorers with 10 goals. Auston Trusty and Mark McKenzie emerged as the first choice pairing at the back despite the duo having very little experience though they did just enough to ensure Philadelphia managed to finish above the red line despite ending the regular season with a couple of disappointing performances. Unfortunately for Philadelphia, the dip in form extended into the playoffs where they stumbled at the first hurdle itself, suffering a heavy 1-3 defeat at New York City FC to bring a disappointing end to the campaign. There are a number of positives for coach Jim Curtin to build on for the next season though key to Philadelphia's fortunes will be their ability to hold on to Dockal, with the midfielder having arrived on loan, while Picault has also been attracting the eyes of other clubs. With Curtin expected to retain his job with a successful campaign, having a good off-season will be key to Philadelphia's fortunes in the next campaign.
