  • #DCU offseason in full effect

    In a recent episode of The Best Soccer Show, Jason and Jared lamented the fact that there was no time to properly digest and reflect on the accomplishment of the LA Galaxy, to put them into historical context, and really look back upon the season that was. For those of us who are fans of […]

  • United’s trade bait list

    The protected lists for tomorrow’s expansion draft have been released, and while United’s list includes some no brainers that will be key contributors next season, it also includes some players that could be trade bait to the right club. Protected: Charlie Davies, Dwyane DeRosario, Dejan Jakovic, Perry Kitchen, Chris Korb, Brandon McDonald, Chris Pontius, Clyde […]

  • Update to my #DCU protection list

    After seeing Goff’s interview with Kevin Payne, I have one update to my previous post. The quote from KP is: “We don’t know Jed Zayner’s physical condition is. We don’t know if he is going to be able to play again. His knee is a real issue.” With that being said, there is no need […]

  • Union Busting! New Look United takes on Philadelphia

    Olsen and company have gone all in on this season. The rebuilding that many were content to endure this season is now over. The front office acquired some tradeable assets over the course of the offseason, and has now decided to use them to try and take advantage of the weak Eastern Conference. Third place […]

  • Defensive Juggling: How does United replace Jakovic?

    Ever since the back four of Perry Kitchen, Dejan Jakovic, Ethan White, and Daniel Woolard first started playing together, the DC United defense has looked more organized and, more importantly, has let in far fewer goals. But now, United’s longest serving defensive starter, Dejan Jakovic, is leaving for duty with the Canadian National Team. Regardless […]

  • Into the Hall of the Burgundy Kings: DC United at the Colorado Rapids

    After a rough outing in New England, DC United is (hopefully) ready to put that behind them and concentrate on a tough game against the defending champions. Traditionally, Colorado is not a place where United succeeds; they were able to buck that trend last season, pulling off a shocking victory. I think that Omar Cummings […]

  • Does no Clyde Simms mean the return of Kurt Morsink?

    Well, it looks like United will be without another defensive player today. Clyde Simms has injured his calf and will not be featured in the match tonight against the Revs. With potential replacement Perry Kitchen away with the national team and Conor Shanosky not yet ready, the choice comes down to two players: Branko Boskovic […]

  • Charlie Davies and Julius James: D.C. United making moves

    The worst kept secret in all of D.C. area sports was confirmed yesterday: Charlie Davies is now a member of D.C. United. I am happy for him to be in D.C. as a fan, but also happy that he is finally able to get back to first team soccer after his horrific accident. Even though […]

  • State of the Roster (Charlies Davies Edition)

    Ben Olsen’s coy comments about American strikers have come true, as D.C. United has used their position on top of the allocation order to, pending an extended physical, sign Charlie Davies to a year long loan. On the surface, this is a great move for D.C. United, as it takes a player that has almost […]

  • Kitchen, Korb, and Willis: What’s Next?

    The MLS Superdraft went a little differently than people expected.  Firstly, Darlington Nagbe didn’t go number 1. Neither did Perry Kitchen; instead, Vancouver went with Omar Salgado, the long-term prospect who supposedly has the highest ceiling out of any of the forwards, but can’t play until September (apparently).  Then Portland snapped up Nagbe, who they […]
