  • 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.

  • 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.

United is going to be taking a forward in the upcoming SuperDraft; the only question is which one.  The release of Pablo Hernadez was a good move; between Hernadez and Danny Allsopp, United has cleared $467,000 off of its books.  Now, they have acquired a couple of forwards through the Re-Entry draft, but neither […]

  • Wolff is fine (as long as Salgado is coming)

    Well, that was an experience! As we all learned, DC United took Josh Wolff, former US International and member of the Kansas City Wizards, in the first round of the second stage of the re-entry draft.  And even though there is a lot of criticism of the move, I think that I’m okey with it.  […]

  • DCU Signs Ethan White (and other thoughts)

    Earlier today, DC United signed Ethan White to a homegrown player contract, taking him out of the pool for the SuperDraft; he was projected by many to be a first round pick and so locking him up now essential will net United two players with first round qualifications.  A young true striker (Omar Salgado?) with […]
