D.C. United preseason lessons

Going into the preseason, I had no idea how United would line up on opening day. Would Perry Kitchen be a center back or a midfielder? Was there a chance we'd see a 3-5-2? What combination of our "meh"-caliber strikers...

CONCACAF doesn't have time to rig Gold Cup draw

Look, it's not easy being CONCACAF President Jack Warner. There's a lot to keep track of: what was promised to whom and in exchange for what and when. There's a pile of money in the corner of your office...is that...

Ignoring the burning wreckage, part 4: the strikers

If you're going to melt down, do it in an entertaining way. Charlie Sheen gets it; nobody's mourning the loss of Two and a Half Men, probably because the Charlie Sheen Channels Kenny Powers Show is at least ten times more...

How will we assess Charlie Davies?

We can't be objective about things that we love. I will never admit that Steve Martin has lost a step, no matter how many Cheaper by the Dozen sequels he makes. I will never get mad at bar-b-q ribs, even as...

United seeking enthusiastic self-starter for goalkeeping position

D.C. United is in the market for a goalkeeper. It's not exactly a glamor position; they're looking for someone to fill the void until Bill Hamid or Steve Cronin are healthy enough to start. Whoever gets the gig will probably...

Ignoring the burning wreckage, part 3: the midfield

It was around this time last year that United decided to fire their entire midfield. Fred: traded. Christian Gomez: released. Danny Szetela: cut. Foribert N'Galula: N'Gone. Ben Olsen: retired. It was weird. The "fire everybody" strategy doesn't really work. It...
