DCU Reserves Win

Goals by guest player Domenic Mediate (in the 22nd) and Nicholas Addlery (75th) led DCU over New England, 2-0, in Foxborough, Mass. United reserves are now 2-1-2, Revs are 3-2-0. Addlery's cross (yes, United players apparently know how to cross) set up Mediate's goal, and an Addlery combination with Marc Burch resulted in the second goal. Mediate was among four guest players for DCU.

D.C. United: Shawn Crowe (Jay Nolly 46), Devon McTavish, Stephen DeRoux, Domenic Mediate, Matt Cross (Geoff Walker 63), Marc Burch, Justin Moose, Brad North, Rod Dyachenko (Anders Kelto 46), Kasali Casal, Nick Addlery.

So how did burch and mediate look overall? ready to get minutes?

As usual, good reporting, Goff.

So, McTavish is ready to go?

Maybe Addlery should be developed into a winger...

Does participation in this Reserve match partner with the Galaxy game or with the upcoming NY/NJ game? In other words, were players limited in participation based on how many minutes they played this past Saturday or will their participation in this game affect the number of minutes they can play Sunday?

Wow. A clean sheet and two run-of-play goals. I hope the first teamers are paying attention.

Any chance Mediate will be resigned by DCU?

Where did Burch play? On the wing or part of the defense?

Hey goff just wanted to let you know most likely moreno is going to play for bolivia. They announced today in the press a list players which will practice and most likely compete in the copa america for bolivia.


Moreno is included.

With Moreno possibly gone and the extent of Kpene's injury uncertain, does this mean Emilio up top alone? Or Addlery pairing up with him for some rare minutes?

Posted by: iammrben | June 7, 2007 4:22 PM | Report abuse

iammrben,

Hopefully, with moreno gone and kpene hurt, DCU plays Emilio and Fred together as the two forwards, with Fred playing withdrawn. I REALLY want to see how he plays in that position.

I wasn't at the game so I really can't say how anyone played today.

Kpene is out this week, but should return next week.

Yes, Moreno is expected to make Copa roster. No surprise.

Today's reserve match does not impact player minutes for this weekend. But anyone who played today is very likely to start Sunday. So figure Emilio and Moreno, Gomez, Fred, Carroll and Olsen, Boswell, Erpen, Namoff and Gros. Maybe Simms instead of Carroll. We'll see...

Posted by: Goff | June 7, 2007 4:42 PM | Report abuse

Oops......anyone who played today is very "unlikely" to start Sunday.
Sorry

Goffer-

Any tidbits out of the USMNT match tonight? What will you watch? MLS, or MNT? What's your favorite color?

Posted by: Logan Circle | June 7, 2007 4:54 PM | Report abuse

Just created a USA thread on the Insider. Go at it, lads!

Posted by: Goff | June 7, 2007 4:55 PM | Report abuse

thanks for the update. I feel badly for Mediate--what's he doing for income? It's great to play professional soccer and all, but the man needs to pay the rent.

Posted by: jj | June 7, 2007 5:08 PM | Report abuse

Doesn't United now have two new developmental spots available (from Kpene and Willis), of which one could be awarded to Mediate should he prove effective enough during reserve matches? Do any of the wide mids and wide backs from the reserves stand out as ready for a call up to the senior side?

Posted by: Dominic Not-Mediate | June 7, 2007 6:32 PM | Report abuse

Goff, seriously, what's the word on Mediate? I mean, of course we're all rooting for him, but are we hoping for too much, or is there really a chance that he's going to make it all the way back and re-join the team?

Posted by: soccer nerd | June 7, 2007 8:33 PM | Report abuse

Hey, while we're at it, what's DC's plan for NEXT year's comeback player of the year Jamil Walker? What does DC do with him? Is there some sort of "injured reserve" that allows DC to keep him around but free up the roster spot?

Posted by: soccer nerd | June 7, 2007 8:35 PM | Report abuse

I do believe Mediate aged out of the DEV contracts which are only to be used on players under 25 at the end of the season and thus can only be a senior player. I don't think he would have been dropped if he could have stayed DEV. Just another situation that indicates we might need serious revision of the roster rules.

soccer nerd-

Yes there is an injured reserve list and Walker might be the only player in the league on it at this point in the year. (Anyone else out the whole season?) The team frees a roster spot but the salary still counts against cap. United promoted Kpene to the open spot.
