Currently bottom of the table and mired in a five game losing streak with seeming nothing but misery in sight, DC United will have to find something special as they face one of their toughest conference foes in the high flying Houston Dynamo who are off to their best start ever and tied for the [...]
D.C. United is currently on a four-game losing streak and in spite of the offense finally coming to life in last weekend’s 3-2 loss at home to the Philadelphia Union, the confidence that rode underdog United to the Eastern Conference finals last season has all but eroded. For most of United’s dreadful start to the 2013 [...]
As D.C. United gets set to face their most bitter rivals New York Red Bull this Saturday evening at 7pm at RFK Stadium, one can’t wonder what to think what has happened to both of these teams during the early portion of this season. Both teams were on the short list to fight for Eastern [...]
MLS didn’t do D.C. United any favors with a rather harsh flurry of tough road matches to start the 2013 season. United started the season in a city (Houston) where they have literally never won a match in their history. Then they travel to play the home opener to their most bitter rival (Red Bull) [...]
I think it's safe to say that D.C. United's early season offensive production has been in a word... Offensive. One goal scored in three matches with only the 1-0 home opening win two weeks ago against Real Salt Lake being the only evidence that United has played some attacking soccer through three weeks of the MLS Season. Even that match saw long stretches of play without any meaningful chances created. The two road matches played by United so far has garnered only one shot on goal through those two matches.
D.C. United opens up the home portion of their 2013 MLS regular season with a matchup against Real Salt Lake this Saturday night at 7pm at RFK Stadium. United is coming off of a disappointing but ultimately predictable 2-0 loss in Houston last weekend to open up the 2013 campaign. Two late goals sunk United [...]
[UPDATED] – Dwayne De Rosario has indeed been suspended for two matches and fined for his altercation with Danny Cruz The last time D.C. United officially had taken the field outside of RFK Stadium was the first leg of the Eastern Conference finals against the Houston Dynamo in Houston this past November. That 3-1 [...]
Last year, a late season draw doomed DC from the playoffs, but what a difference a year makes as DC is riding a three game win streak this late in the season for the first time since 2004, so a road point is more than enough for DC.
United got the three points they needed against NE, but far from showing DC is on the way towards a playoff berth for the first time since 2007, that win exposed even more questions than the win answered. Now, the team has to pull together, rather than drift apart, for crucial road points to keep themselves firmly in the playoff hunt. Photo: Martin Fernandez.
Fresh off the brutal news that United has lost their captain and defending league MVP, Dwayne De Rosario for the rest of the season due to a knee injury while playing for Canada in World Cup Qualifying, United has to regroup and find a way to force themselves back into the playoff picture with a string of good results that must start with a win over the visiting Revs tomorrow night.
