  • 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, […]

  • Two United Academy Products to the U-20 USMNT

    Hello to any new followers my Emiliano Dudar story have brought! Hope you all are as excited for the upcoming DC United season as I am. But the real United news today are the team’s two academy products that have been brought into Tab Ramos’ U-20 United States Men’s National Team. The two are center […]

  • United’s long, dark winter

    This post has been sitting around in my drafts for a couple of weeks now, but it hasn’t changed. The silly season is currently in fully effect for the teams with plenty of money, but the majority of the teams have gone silent. DC United is currently in a holding pattern, having not taken any […]

  • #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 […]

  • #DCU Protection List

    Now that the season is officially over, it is time to look ahead to the next one. DC United has a solid, young core to build upon, and I am feeling confident for next year. The first stage in the offseason is the expansion draft, where the Montreal Impact will select 10 players from the […]

  • Tradesplosion! McDonald, DeRo, and Dax

    Ben Olsen’s DC United has been anything but tame. Olsen shook things up in the offseason, and he has done it again today. On my drive home, I saw that United had traded allocation money for Brandon McDonald, a physical centerback from the SJ Earthquakes. I think it is a good move, giving United some […]

  • Boskovic on the wing

    D.C. United has been playing with our expectations; and no, I’m not talking about Charlie Davies. When Branko Boskovic was signed as United’s designated player last summer, it was with the understanding that he would be the #10, the playmaker in central midfield. In the two preseason scrimmages that have been played so far, Ben […]

  • 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 […]

  • State of the Roster, 1/30/2011

    This offseason has contained a lot of turnover in the D.C. United roster; gone are the older players who where trying to help United stave off the inevitable rebuilding process. I don’t think that the current D.C. United roster is going to be the one that we see on opening day, but if the season […]
