Biggest Gain: Forward Josué Martínez, the 21 year-old from Costa Rica scored 19 goals in three years at his home club Saprissa. Look for the young talent to emerge and score plenty goals for the Union this season.
Biggest Loss: Forward Sébastien Le Toux scored 25 goals in his two seasons in Philadelphia, his absence will leave a large gap in the goal scoring department.
Summary: Philadelphia lost some key figures in the offseason including Le Toux and Justin Mapp, which is questioning new squad’s ability to score goals. The Union have established themselves as a quality MLS franchise from top to bottom; but unless they make some transfer window moves, Philadelphia will not have enough fire power to go deep in the playoffs.
Game to Watch: vs Portland 3/12 on ESPN2- It will be the season debut for both clubs that are looking to become part of the MLS elite.
Biggest Gain: Defender Miguel Aceval will bring something Toronto FC has been lacking–stability.
