PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — It’s back to work this Saturday for the Philadelphia Union, and the KYW Philly Soccer Show gets you ready!

The Union come off a ‘bye’ week to face the Columbus Crew.   KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch chat with Robert Warzycha, head coach of the Crew.   They are coming off a 4-1 thrashing, at home, by the New Red Bulls, and enter the game with a 2-2-0 record.

In Part 1, Warzycha talks about how he is getting his team ready for the Union. He also touches on his relationship with Union coach Peter Nowak, whom he played with on the Polish National Team.

The Union are in need of a win.  The team hasn’t played since a 0-0 draw against the Vancouver Whitecaps (read game story) and have no wins and only one point in the standings to go with two goals.

In Part 2, we look at the possible lineup the Union could use in the game on Saturday (3:30pm).  We also discuss two other announcements:

Chelsea FC, of the English Premier League, will play at PPL Park and face the MLS All-Stars in July (see related story).  Also, an international “friendly” has been announced, with the Union set to play Schalke 04 of the German Bundesliga on May 9th.
