Some really shocking news could be breaking in the near future after soccer insider Ives Galarcep just tweeted that the Union are working on a deal to sell the face of the franchise, Sebastien LeToux, to a European Club.
Not only has LeToux been the franchise's best player ever, he's also a tireless worker on the pitch and has endeared himself to the Philadelphia fanbase. His departure would be the first real personnel blow to the fanbase that even the casual soccer fans would be upset by.
UPDATE: Here's the story on Fox Sports:
Philadelphia star striker Sebastien LeToux arrived in England on
Tuedsay night ahead of a potential transfer to Bolton, United
Kingdom-based sources told FOX Soccer Wednesday morning. The Union
are prepared to sell the 28-year-old French striker in a move that
would allow Philadelphia to keep young attacker Danny Mwanga,
around whom trade rumors have recently circulated. The move would
also free the funds needed to replace the all-star LeToux.
Three games into his NFL career, Carson Wentz might need a bigger trophy case.
The 23-year-old, who picked up his first NFC Offensive Player of the Week award for his performance against Pittsburgh, has been named the NFL's Offensive Rookie of the Month for September.
Yes, Wentz's first NFL month was a special one.
The No. 2 pick from North Dakota State has completed 64.7 percent of his passes for 769 yards, five touchdowns and zero interceptions. He's the first rookie in NFL history to put up those numbers in the first three games of a career. And his 102 straight passing attempts without an interception is also a rookie record.
It's hard to believe that a little over a week before the season began, Wentz was scheduled to be the Eagles' third-string quarterback and have a redshirt year. That all changed when de facto GM Howie Roseman traded away starter Sam Bradford and the team decided to start the rookie.
While many thought the decision to start Wentz was the beginning of a long rebuilding year, the rookie has the Eagles off to a fast 3-0 start. Wentz has played very well, but has also been aided by a stout defense, led by NFC Defensive Player of the Month Fletcher Cox.
This week, Wentz is spending some time hunting while the Eagles are on their bye week. He bagged another trophy on Thursday.
The team will be back in action on Oct. 9 in Detroit to face the Lions.

Joel Embiid really trusts the process.
And he'll tell you as much over and over.
In fact, JoJo said it so much yesterdady that he was cracking himself up about just how much he trusts the process.
By most accounts, Joel was a bit rusty in the first couple of practices to kick off training camp, but, you know, you've just got to trust the process.
And he does. Trust the process.
