CHESTER, Pa. (CBS) –  No rest for the weary as the struggling Philadelphia Union have to go across the country Saturday to face one of the hottest teams in the league, the Seattle Sounders.

And to get you ready, the KYW Philly Soccer Show talks with Sounders’ coach Sigi Schmid.

KYW’s Greg Orlandini and Philly Soccer Page writer Eli Pearlman-Storch talk with Schmid about his team’s four-game unbeaten streak, including a thorough beating of the Colorado Rapids last week, 4-1.

Schmid also talks about how well his top player (and national team star) Clint Dempsey is playing, after an earlier slump.

We then look at the Union with Philly Soccer Page writer Adam Cann.  The Union have only one win on the year and are now winless in seven straight games.

Last week saw them lose a dour match in Montreal, 1-0.  We also discuss an article by David Zeitlin in which Union coach John Hackworth calls out midfielder for his lack of fitness, among other things.
