Doyle: "This win was that big for Philly"

Yep Union fans, yesterday was real. The Boys in Blue are into the Eastern Conference semifinals after knocking off rival New York Red Bulls in a match that defined the 2019 edition of Philadelphia Union

MLSSoccer.com's senior writer Matthew Doyle took to the keyboard to attempt to analyze the thriller and in the end came up with one conclusion: Sunday's playoff win will be part a moment of history talked about forever.

"Union players, coaches, front office, owners, stadium vendors, talk radio personalities, beat reporters and – most importantly – the fans got their moment," Doyle wrote. "The official attendance was 18,530. My guess is that thousands more will say "I was there!" in the years to come. This win was that big for Philly."
