Bob Weiser started playing soccer as a youth and has been following the sport ever since, dating back to days of watching the Bundesliga on PBS on Saturday afternoons.

First clean sheet of the year

Peter Nowak, apparently, had finally seen enough of Chris Seitz in the Union goal after Seitz allowed a disappointing goal a week ago. That was good news for Union fans as Brad Knighton got the start Saturday night at PPL Park against the Chicago Fire. Knighton didn't disappoint, making several impressive saves and leading the Union to a 1-0 win and the first shutout of the MLS season.

I have been clamoring for this change for months and, hopefully, this time it will stick. Knighton started a game earlier this year and got a red card early in the first half. It was back to the bench after that, but Knighton earned another start after Saturday's effort. He made at least 3 quality saves and seemed to be in the right spots. He came out to the ball, rather than sitting back and waiting, like Seitz seems to do regularly.

Another beautiful goal from Sebastien LeToux, his 11th, as he pursues the MLS Golden Ball.
