PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The playoffs are upon us!  The KYW Philly Soccer Show gets you ready as the Philadelphia Union gets set to take on the Houston Dynamo this Sunday at PPL Park, for the team’s first-ever playoff game.

KYW’s Greg Orlandini and cohost Eli Pearlman-Storch are joined this week by Press of Atlantic City writer James Clark and Kerith Gabriel of the Philadelphia Daily News.

In part one, the roundtable looks at how the Union will line up against Houston this coming Sunday.  In this playoff round, the teams play a home-and-home series, and the team with the highest goal total after two games advances to the next round.

Will the team go after the goals early or try to play a tight defensive game?

In part two, we look at the center of midfield and some of the struggles that Freddy Adu has gone through since coming to the Union.  Adu was a high-profile signing coming in the summer, but has struggled to find his place on the team.

And with the Union needing more scoring punch, he will need to shine in the playoffs.

In part three, the Union has strong leadership on the defensive side with goalkeeper Faryd Mondragon and defender Danny Califf.   But what about on offense?  We debate who needs to step up in the playoffs.
