They may have to pick "Union" to get their facility in Chester built.

PHL owner's thoughts last week:

"I wish we could give you hard commitments today, but we're not even sure the stadium is going to be built," he told the Delaware County Times. "If the [financial] markets tank next month, then we won't build this thing. We'll be out $15 million and everyone goes home."

Philly MLS owner talks to Seattle P.I.

His thoughts two days later:

?The market?s fine,? he said. ?We feel that we?re in pretty good shape. Every day?s a new day, but today we feel pretty good about it.?

He speaks to a local suburban paper

Upon further review, the ruling on the field has been overturned --

"Philadelphia" (now called Alaşehir) is now located in Turkey, and the Greek spelling for the city would be "Φιλαδέλφεια."

I'd totally be in favor of "FC Φιλαδέλφεια."

I was really hoping Keystones would be on that list. The best one on there is Union, but that name sounds more suited for a team in the Rust Belt.

I guess I could live with Phily SC. At least it would lend itself to an organic nickname from the fans.
