  • SEQ: Players’ salaries

    For our second installment of Search Engine Questions, I decided to tackle money. One search term that often brings people to my blog is the amount of money that certain players are being payed. The full list of player salaries, including an explanation of the difference between base salary and guaranteed compensation, can be found […]

  • 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 […]

  • Quick post before kickoff

    Sorry folks, I’ve been busy with conferences for work and the like. But I’m back and will be drinking whiskey and watching the game tonight. I liked the Stephen King experiment versus FC Dallas, and wouldn’t mind seeing it again, especially if the defense can remain as solid as it has been for the past […]

  • Welp, that sucked

    Well, there is no two ways around it. The game against the New York Red Bulls exposed all of the flaws in this current DC United team, while showing none of the good things that they have built so far this season. Actually, it reminded me a lot more of last year’s team, which is […]

  • Red Dead Continuation: DC United vs. Toronto FC

    Onwards, my friends! This is just a quick post because I’m not going to be in town again this weekend, but I wanted to get a post out there. I think that United has a good chance to pick up three road points this weekend, and anything less is going to be a bit of […]

  • 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 […]

  • A few things I think I think after beating the Charleston Battery

    And no, hopefully I do not turn into the soccer equivalent of Peter King; if I do, please, someone just smack me upside the head. Anyways, here are my random thoughts about D.C United’s 2-1 win over the Charleston Battery: Dax McCarty with an early knife just splitting open the Battery defense: that’s not something […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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 […]
