My personal opinion is that Sainey Touray will earn time with the Union at some point in the season. His speed and touch make him worthy of a look from the Philly staff.

Time will tell.

But there was no, ‘Go after this guy.’
The encounter with Philadelphia Union should be particularly poignant for the 32-year-old USA international keeper, because the club’s chief executive officer, Nick Sakiewics, coached Howard during the early part of his career in the US. Howard said: “Nick brought me through the ranks while I was a youngster. I’m friends with many of the coaching staff at Philadelphia Union and one of my best friends, Danny Califf, plays for them.”
So the Revolution can take something from both halves, both positive and negative, heading into Sunday’s league match with the Philadelphia Union, which New England coach Steve Nicol described as "huge" following Wednesday night’s friendly loss.
San Jose Earthquakes head coach Frank Yallop also received an additional $500 fine for conduct unbecoming of a professional when he was dismissed from the sideline during a match with the Philadelphia Union on July 9.
