Black And Red United: Charlie Davies-To-DC Could Be Good For Both Parties

DC United set a record for scoring futility last season, notching just 22 goals. The next worst team in MLS had 31 goals. So, it should come as little surprise that DC United fans are more than a little intrigued about adding a player who was once considered a future star for the United States National Team.

One of those people who's particularly intrigued is Black and Red United Martin Shatzer. He sees DC's need, as well as the opportunity for Charlie Davies to reset his career and imagines a beautiful relationship.

This could be a great move for everyone involved. United gets the forward that the club has been sorely missing. They’d be solving the weakest link on the roster, and would have to be considered the most improved club in all of MLS going into the 2011 season. Davies would be arriving in a place where he would be embraced and where he could enter the starting lineup immediately. And Sochaux would be unloading the salary of a player who they probably don’t expect to contribute in 2011.

Now, news comes that DC United is meeting with Davies in Florida where he'll undergo a week-long evaluation. Assuming he's capable of playing, this looks like it could very well happen.
