In part two, we discuss the Union’s possible targets in the upcoming summer transfer period, which starts at the end of June.
One name being thrown around is defender Carlos Bocanegra, who is coming off a long European career with stints in England, France, and Scotland, and is the current captain of the US National Team.
We also look at one positive with the team: the Union are in the quarterfinals of the US Open Cup, with a win at DC United. This sets up a match on June 26th at PPL Park against the Harrisburg City Islanders.
