Sweet Goal

It's a few days old, but a great goal from the U.S. women's team against China at the Four Nations tournament. Just click on "Highlights: U.S. WNT 2, China 0" The goal you want to see is about 1 minute into the highlight clip......

Training Camp, Day 5

On its final day of training in the Washington area before heading down to Florida for two weeks, United spent the morning working on conditioning at Velocity Sports Performance fitness center in Alexandria. The team ended the session with a basketball shooting contest. I wasn't keeping score, but Jeff Carroll...

USA-MEX roster update

The USA roster for the Mexico match has arrived. The original plan was for Onyewu and Beasley to be included, but that did not happen. Not sure why. Mexico also called in reinforcements from Europe: Marquez from Barcelona, Salcido from PSV and Pardo and Osorio from Stuttgart. The match, of...

Rod's Wild Ride

So when the news broke that Rod Dyachenko had been reacquired by DCU, I figured I should try to get him on the phone. I called his cell and found him in his car somewhere in Pennsylvania, on the way back to Washington after an adventurous 24 hours on the...

Rod is Back

DCU has reacquired Rod Dyachenko from Toronto for a 2008 first-round draft pick. Details to come... Update: There's a whole lot more to this story. I'll put it up here this evening. You're going to want to read this, I promise....

MLS schedule near?

The league has tentatively scheduled to release the full regular season schedule next Tuesday. We already know when Beckham is supposed to appear at RFK -- Thu., Aug. 9 -- so the big question is when the young Adu will make his return. You can bet that an RSL-DCU game...

Lots of Questions Answered

Q: Do you think RSL will really be sold and leave that area? Implications of RSL fiasco for DC getting a stadium built? A: You mean that stadium groundbreaking in Salt Lake with Beckham last summer was all for show? Shocking. Salt Lake is a long way from DC, in...

Move Over, Ebert & Roeper

So what have our DCU boys been doing in their spare time out in L.A. -- actually, they're bunkered down in Manhattan Beach, which, from my coastal point-of-view, has got nothing on neighboring Hermosa Beach -- while training with the national team? Why going to the movies, of course. Boswell...

Training camp, Day 2

A few items to pass along from United training camp today at RFK: -- Team officials expects the full regular season schedule to be released next Wednesday, Feb. 7. Of course, that could change. MLS is finalizing TV games and tinkering with some matches here and there, but for the...

The Lake Runs Dry

So all hell has broken loose in Salt Lake City and this little kickball experience might be heading toward a salt-watery grave. RSL wants the city to help with stadium infrastructure costs. City isn't interested. Suburban types don't seem to care either. Dave Checketts is very mad. Seems he might...

Brrrrrrr......Part II

If you've ever been out to D.C. United's training grounds outside RFK Stadium, you know that the temperature there is always about 10 degrees cooler than the rest of civilization because of the vast open area around the fields. Which of course is a big problem when the temperature is...
