Dan Fuller Gives His Extraordinarily Lengthy and Comprehensive Review of the Union’s New Kit

I asked our fashion editor, Dan Fuller, if he wanted to review the Union’s new alternate kit, which was unveiled yesterday at Xfinity Live! Philadelphia Exclamation Points. Dan, usually not at a loss for words (LOTS AND LOTS AND LOTS OF THEM), responded thusly. It is now our review.

There you have it– indifference and too much Bimbo. It’s like a bad night at the club (perhaps with Sebastien Le Toux?). 

The kit pays homage to some team you’ve never heard of Bethlehem Steel, the local soccer club that won the hearts and minds had a few fans back around the time Rose was getting plowed by Leo on the Titanic (1911-1930). 

A ridiculous video from Adidas, full of all sorts of marketing BS, after the jump.

  1. I’ve heard of the Bethlehem Steel… it’s a shame you haven’t.

  2. Is Dan Fuller the faggot who writes about the eagles uniform every week? What a horrible human being

  3. Umm, the name of the team is the “UNION.” The relationship between the Union and Bethlehem Steel is more than just “hey, they’re both soccer clubs!” Bethlehem Steel was a bastion of the steelworkers’ *union* for most of the 20th century.

    Writes about Philly sports. Includes soccer.

  6. Right now, I’d rather watch the Union over the train wreck that’s the Sixers. There. I said it.

  7. “Union” and Bethlehem do have a very strong bond indeed.
    The “union” destroyed any chance Bethlehem steel had of competing with foreign steel producing markets forcing it’s bankruptcy. You know us Americans, we’d rather kill our keeper than take any less than we think we deserve. This “bond” is a crock of shit actually.

    :(

  9. Your Mother is dead nuts on about Bethlehem Steel. Well said. Anybody who dismisses that BFC team’s contribution to soccer in America should check them out. They are part of the reason Charles Schwab went broke. However, Their “kits” were black and white so i’m not exactly sure how this kit ties in.
    It’s fugly.

  10. How is your phone still working with a battery life of 1 percent? Mine cuts off around 5 percent.

  11. Just catching up on posts and i find you insulted war vets calling them useless when they come home. You kyle are a despicable person. I would love for your spoon fed ass to serve this country. I did 3 tours in iraq. You couldnt handle 3 tours with Air Supply you pussy!

  12. you guys are still harping on the jersey sponsor? makes you look pretty pathetic. that joke was old 3 years ago .

  13. 3 years ago the Union didn’t have a sponsor let alone play their first regular season game.

    You soccer faggots need to find a cliff to jump off of. Worst excuse for a sport in the history of man kind. Id rate curling and anal fingering higher than soccer. I don’t know who the kyke was that decided to put a pack of howling grasshoppers and sand niggers in a cage right in the middle of the nigdom that is that shithole Chester, but they need to be beaten like the Jew scum they are. There’s nothing interesting about watching a pack of wild niggers spics and European trash kick a ball around like a bunch of fuckin cunts.
    As for you kyle Scott, I don’t know what’s worse, a soccer faggot or a soccer faggot that rates the putrid decor that filthy sweaty spooks and werbacks wear.

  15. Expert on anal fingering obama? I will now write a book post on something i don’t care about. What a fuckstick.

  16. Fuck is going on in here

  17. Yeah. So this explains it: http://www.phillysoccerpage.net/2013/02/27/why-bethlehem-steel-fc/
    Oh and the Bimbo thing is old news. Especially for fans of Club America, Chivas de Guadalajara, Monterrey, and Saprissa.

  18. The fuck’s a kit?

  19. Hey boy toys, let’s party!
