So it's Christmas Day, and the day after the Eagles' season officially became irrelevant. I hope the spirit of the holiday season is strong enough to overcome whatever ill will you hold towards Andy Reid and company for their failure to make the playoffs this year.

But if that isn't the case, here's something that might take your mind off the gridiron brand of football for a while. With all the moves that the Union have made this offseason, I thought today would be a good time to take a look at how those parts might come together in 2012.

The Union have made three major international signings so far: Costa Rican forward Josué Martinez, Panamanian midfielder Gabriel Gomez and Costa Rican defender Porfirio Lopez.

They also acquired Tanzanian winger Nizar Khalfan from Vancouver in the Waiver Draft; and brought in Malvern, Pa., native Jimmy McLaughlin as a Homegrown Player for yet more midfield depth.

Here are all the players on the Union's roster as of now:

Forwards:
Levi Houapeu, Sébastien Le Toux, Jack McInerney, Josué Martinez, Danny Mwanga, Veljko Paunović

Midfielders: Freddy Adu, Brian Carroll, Keon Daniel, Michael Farfan, Gabriel Gomez, Nizar Khalfan, Morgan Langley, Jimmy McLaughlin, Kyle Nakazawa, Amobi Okugo, Zach Pfeffer, Roger Torres

Defenders: Danny Califf, Gabriel Farfan, Porfirio Lopez, Joe Tait, Carlos Valdés, Sheanon Williams
