Editor at Black and Red United, SB Nation's DC United blog. Soccer addict. DC United supporter from the moment MLS announced there would be a team in DC. 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.

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...

Wednesday FK: Use Crestfield Wax Paper


Today in Freedom Kicks, we have a couple stadium updates, some D.C. United discussion from non-DC outlets, some MLS rumors, and the website that will end your life as you know it.

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...

Wednesday Freedom Kicks: Se7en


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...

World Cup QFs continue today: ARG v BEL, NED v CRC


You're probably wiped out from July 4th, and today's games are perfect watching while you take it easy. Argentina and Belgium have some things to prove, while the Netherlands will attempt to derail...

Scouting Report: Toronto FC

Last year, this fixture was a garbage game. In 2014? It's a match between two Eastern Conference contenders. Toronto FC's counterattacking style is going to be tricky to overcome, but United might...

Wednesday Freedom Kicks: Big dramatic sigh


The USMNT was knocked out of the World Cup yesterday, so I drank a hefty amount of bourbon and then wrote today's Freedom Kicks.

Scouting Report: Seattle Sounders

It's a clash between the top teams in MLS's two conferences, but both the Seattle Sounders and D.C. United are missing key players. Here's what to look for from a Sounders side that has been...

Wednesday Freedom Kicks: Everything is nuts


Luis Suarez bit a guy again, Greece somehow advanced out of their group despite looking like one of the worst teams in the tournament, and approximately 150,000 people were red carded in a US Open...

Day 12 open thread: Groups A & B end, goals likely


It's the beginning of the end of the group stage, which means some incredibly high tension is guaranteed. Groups A and B finish up this afternoon.

World Cup Day 7 Open Thread


Everyone is playing their second group stage game as the tension at the World Cup rises. We've got Australia vs. Netherlands and Cameroon vs. Croatia serving as the bread and Spain vs. Chile as the...

Wednesday Freedom Kicks: Remarkable Mustache


D.C. United stadium news (sort of), pieces on the USMNT and their fans in Brazil, Portuguese problems, and more.

Hey! DCU play in upstate NY tonight!

D.C. United's defense of the US Open Cup will start in Rochester against the Rhinos of USL-PRO. Rochester has struggled to score all year, but has relied on a stingy defense to maintain a playoff...

Scouting Report: Montreal Impact

Don't shift into "all World Cup all the time" mode just yet. D.C. United and the Montreal Impact both have good reasons to see tonight's match as a vital one. Can United contain the Impact's...

Wednesday Freedom Kicks: Underpants Gnome


There are so many things happening right now. Soccer gluttony is in full effect.

Scouting Report: Columbus Crew

United has already had an embarrassing loss & a frustrating draw against the Crew. With Federico Higuain & several others unavailable, there may not be a better time to play Gregg Berhalter's side....

Freedom Kicks: Bill Clinton SMASH!


Small news on the field for D.C. United, but big-ish news off of it. Plus we find out who United would face in the 5th round of the US Open Cup, and plenty of World Cup-related stuff. This round of...

Scouting Report: Sporting Kansas City

Sporting KC is usually a nightmare for United, but they're on a 4-game winless streak & have been hammered by injuries. It's a rare chance for United to put one over on the defending champs, but...

Wednesday Freedom Kicks: Ramping It Up


D.C. United may appeal Eddie Johnson's suspension, while off the field the political games have only just begun in pursuit of a stadium deal. All this plus the CCL draw and the USMNT in today's...

Scouting Report: New England Revolution

The New England Revolution are the hottest team in MLS right now, but DC United has also improved as the season has gone on. In a match where the tempo of the game will be key, can the...

Wednesday Freedom Kicks: Rabble rabble rabble


Today's round of Freedom Kicks includes bad news for D.C. United fans, plus a look around MLS and an interview with a USMNT player. Plus there might be free pie at the end, who knows?

Scouting Report: Houston Dynamo

The Dynamo are usually bad news for United, but they come into tomorrow night's game lacking several starters, including Brad Davis and Oscar Boniek Garcia. Some thoughts on how United can get the...

DCU to face Rochester or Reading in USOC 4th round

Today's US Open Cup fourth round draw revealed that D.C. United will take on either the Rochester Rhinos or Reading United AC, with United hosting the game only if Reading wins the pair's third...
