DCU @ Philly prediction thread

United just had their unbeaten streak snapped, while Philly haven't won since mid-March.


#tbt Watch D.C. United beat Philly in 2012

JP Dellacamera and his boothmate literally didn't know what hit the Union as the Black-and-Red took all three points out of PPL Park back in June of 2012.

Updated: EJ finally talks about his performance

Pablo Maurer and Thomas Floyd got EJ to talk about his role with United and the USMNT. Some people are predictably unhappy about this. I am not one of them.

Tuesday Freedom Kicks: Humming that one song...


Someones's going to Brazil. (Someone's going. Someone's going. Someone's going to Brazil.)

Travis Clark talks Gedion Zelalem

We asked Top Drawer Soccer's crack writer Travis Clark about the latest young, dual-national starlet who might be destined to don the stars & stripes.

DCU @ Portland highlights

May I recommend starting about 100 seconds into the clip and then turning it off after United ties it at 2?

DCU @ Timbers TV, time & gamethread

The streaking Black-and-Red visit the Rose City tonight to face a struggling Timbers side that has yet to win in 2014 but still haven't lost at home.

DCU @ Timbers prediction thread

It's a late one tomorrow night in the Rose City, so you have plenty of time to let us know how you think it's going to go down when the Black-and-Red take on the Timbers.

EJ might sit in PDX. Who should start instead?

With EJ on listed as "questionable" on the injury report, who should Ben Olsen put in his place Saturday night in Portland?


#tbt - Look back at DCU's 1st ever Portland trip

Back in May of 2011, the Timbers had played 5 home games in their MLS history and won all of them. Then D.C. United came to town.

Tuesday Freedom Kicks


Racism loses, fire burns, and somebody says something about Buzzard Point.

In praise of referee Fotis Bazakos showing the red

The FC Dallas color commentator Kevin Hartman might not have agreed, but FC Dallas' two red cards Saturday night were entirely deserved, and the referee should be commended for protecting the players.

DCU vs. FC Dallas - the game in GIFs

Time to get animated about being ruthless. (Get it? Animated?)

Highlights: DCU 4-1 FC Dallas

Watch as the Black-and-Red run rampant over 10-man FC Dallas.

DCU vs. Dallas predictions thread

With the Black-and-Red on a four-match unbeaten streak, claiming 8 of the last 12 available points, the highest-scoring team in the league comes to visit RFK. How will los Capitalinos fare against league-leading FC Dallas?


#tbt - DCU vs. FC Dallas 2012: the dam broke

It was 2012, and a rebuilt United attack had yet to jell. But all that changed with four goals on the banks of the Anacostia.

Tuesday Freedom Kicks


Today: stadium foibles in other cities, MLS expansion fever, great goals and countertrolling. All in the name of Freedom (Kicks).

DCU 1-1 Crew - Juan Guzman = coward (+ DC is DC)

D.C. United had some help in dropping two points that were basically in the bag, but they still gave up a late equalizer to a 10-man Crew to draw 1-1.

DCU @ Crew predictions thread

In which some of us get optimistic that United keep their winning streak alive while others face the cold, hard probability that the Crew are the (vastly) better team.


When Last* We Met... the Crew (* in 2012)

Usually we look back at the most recent meeting between United and their upcoming opponent, but that would be depressing. So instead, we're looking back at better highlights.

Where's the closest MLS team to where you live?


Via Reddit. I was hoping somebody would work up this map for MLS teams after the MLB version dropped on Opening Day. There are some pretty large gaps in the geography, but there's also more to be gleaned here. (e.g. the Revs are the team of the Canadian maritimes! And Beckham is totally stepping on DC's toes down in Miami!) What catches your eye?

Tax Day Freedom Kicks


Stadium struggles in cities that aren't DC, credit where it's due, and a new front-runner in the League's Biggest Douche race. Here is your morning dose of freedom, soccer style.

DCU vs. Metros tactical review: Thank you, CBs!

In a game controlled by the visitors for long stretches, United GK Andrew Dykstra was tested few times, thanks in large part to his center backs.

DCU 1-1 Metros Highlights, plus Saturday's meetup

United held on against a second-half onslaught, and viewers held on against Shep Messing's usual attempts at analysis. Luckily, the Metros' attempts to score weren't any more successful than Messing's attempts at wit.

DCU vs. Metros streaming info, gamethread & more

Two teams enter... well, both teams will leave, but one of them will have three more points than the other one.* Tonight we renew the original MLS rivalry with the first Atlantic Cup meeting in 2014. (* Unless it's a draw, of course.)
