PHILADELPHIA (CBS) –- The Philadelphia Union needed a big strong presence up front, and it arrived in the offseason in the form of Conor Casey.  The Union striker is the guest this week on the KYW Philly Soccer Show.

KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch talk with the former Colorado Rapid player about coming to Philly in the off season.

Casey, who has two goals and two assists on the year, also discusses the budding on-field relationship with fellow forward Jack McInerney, whose play has really blossomed since Casey’s arrival.

We then look ahead to the Union’s home match against the Seattle Sounders.  This is the first time the Philadelphia Union is back at PPL Park since the 1-1 draw against Toronto FC on April 13th (see game story).

The Union is coming off a disastrous 2-0 road loss to New England last week (see game story), and now looks to find its winning form against the struggling Sounders, who are sitting on one win for the year.
