  • Kickers offseason roundup, part 1

    Welcome to our first installment of the Kickers offseason roundup, where we tell you what has been happening since the season has ended and get you ready for 2013! The first bit of news from the Kickers offseason is that Shane Johnson, standout centerback, has been resigned to a multi-year deal. On the surface, this […]

  • Richmond Kickers find their way back home

    This Saturday, the Richmond Kickers find themselves back home at City Stadium for a game against the Rochester Rhinos. After a disappointing trip to North Carolina, the Kickers need a good result to keep themselves on track for the playoffs. The Rochester (Ragin’) Rhinos are 5 points up on the Kickers and are one of […]

  • Richmond Kickers vs. Charlotte Eagles Game Thread

    Sorry, getting this up far too late. Lineup is Pascale, Goerres, Yomby, Yeisley, Vercollone, Callahan, Dos Santos, Nyazamba, Hiroyama, MacKenzie, Agorsor. Feel free to use this to talk about the game, but it is not on USL Nation (damn you Charlotte!). For DCU fans, Ethan White is not starting, but is in the 18. I’ll […]

  • Drafts and a trialist?

    The SuperDraft and the Supplemental Draft are now over, which has added four additional players to DC United’s roster. United’s draft haul includes two attacking midfielders and two defenders, which leads me to hope that United is in deep discussions with international forwards that will be signing this week. The two attacking midfielders were the […]

  • SuperDraft preview

    DC United only has one pick in today’s MLS SuperDraft, so they better make it count. Last year, United got solid contributors with all of its picks in both the SuperDraft and the Supplemental draft: a key starter in Perry Kitchen, and quality role players in Joe Willis, Chris Korb, and Blake Brettschneider. This year, […]

They also state that Malmo will play the Columbus Crew on February 8 as well, before returning to Sweden. What gives […]

    Welp, here is another rumor, hot off the rumor mill. A Swedish newspaper in the city of Malmo, Sydsvenskan, is reporting that Malmo FF will play DC United and the Columbus Crew during the preseason, possibly on February 4 and 8. Malmo finished fourth in the Allsvenskan last season, and would be coming over at […]
