USA supporter from the moment I was informed that we had such a team. I might have kicked you while playing indoor soccer, and I do not apologize for doing so.

Most of the links are about EJ, most of the words are about things that happened in 2004. There's also some DCU, MLS, & CCL stuff in there too.

Korb strains hamstring, out for a month

D.C. United had been relatively healthy throughout the spring and early summer, but the injury bug is back with a vengeance now. Defender Chris Korb will miss a month after injuring his hamstring.

D.C. United wasn't ready for the bell to ring tonight and paid dearly for it, as Real Salt Lake scored three goals within a thirteen minute span before using their dominance in possession to see...

DCU vs. Real Salt Lake: TV info and Game Thread

DCU vs. RSL at Rio Tinto was somehow a big game last year, and it's unexpectedly a big game this year too. A win sends United into first place overall, so we're looking at a big game. This is your...

Scouting Report: Real Salt Lake

Both D.C. United and Real Salt Lake will have key attacking players going against stand-in players due to key defensive suspensions. The team that can hide their temporary weakness the best will...

Crossbar challenges, all-stars, suspensions, nasty feet, and men named Tuffy. All that plus probably some other things in today's Freedom Kicks.

RECAP: Bruin, Dynamo do what they always do to DCU

Yup, just another trip to Houston: The Dynamo were in charge for long stretches while United created little. However, the game appeared to be petering out to a draw until a defensive disaster...

D.C. United has never had more trouble in a venue than they've had at BBVA Compass Stadium. Is tonight the night United finally wins in the Bayou City over a struggling Houston Dynamo? Join our...

Scouting Report: Houston Dynamo

The Dynamo have made some big new additions, which should let them play a more optimal. Still, there are major vulnerabilities in central defense for D.C. United to attack, and this is a great...

Report: Boswell replaces Gonzalez on All-Star Team

D.C. United probably deserved to have more players named to the 2014 All-Star Game, and it looks like something's being done to address that. Team captain Bobby Boswell appears to have been named...

Scouting Report: Toronto FC

DC United hosts a TFC side that will be missing 3/4 of their normal back four & is also coming off of a 2-1 home loss to a team that was playing down a man. It's not a must-win, but it's definitely...

Freedom Kicks: Sah-dah-tay!


D.C. United plays TFC tonight, MLS teams are making trades, and a tornado tried to destroy Dick's Sporting Goods Park. Yup, just another day of Freedom Kicks.

Dykstra out for the season due to torn achilles

United's backup GK won't be able to play for quite a while due to a serious injury sustained in a non-serious game. Joe Willis has been recalled from the Richmond Kickers as a result.

RECAP: DCU 0 Fulham 3, or so we've been told

Can a game that is devoid of meaning at kickoff somehow become even more meaningless as it goes on? Does anyone win or lose? Well, yes: Fulham's reserves beat United's reserves for reasons unknown.

DCU vs. Fulham: Streaming audio & gamethread

I know what you're thinking: "Who cares about this friendly being played 700 miles away against a team that isn't even in the top flight in their country?" And you're right, but let's hang out...

Scouting Report: Chivas USA

Last year, this was a pairing everyone knew would produce an awful game, but these are actually two good teams right now. United needs to get the details right to shut down Cubo Torres and Chivas USA.

Wednesday Freedom Kicks: Reprobates


D.C. United has added to their TV schedule and perhaps to their roster, other teams around MLS are doing other things, and some World Cup post-mortem pieces. All that plus free cake await you in...

Scouting Report: San Jose Earthquakes

San Jose is at the foot of the Western Conference, but the Bay Area has never been a happy hunting ground for D.C. United. That said, fans are well within reason to demand a third straight road win...

That was brutal. Germany obliterated Brazil, and we also have our normal round-up of DCU news and some Open Cup stuff as well.

DeLeon and Kitchen strike as DCU downs TFC 2-1

After a difficult first half, D.C. United took advantage of a tiring Toronto FC to win 2-1 at BMO Field. Nick DeLeon and Perry Kitchen scored the goals, while Steve Birnbaum and Bill Hamid made big...
