D.C. United news & notes

Greetings from central North Carolina, where I've stopped for the day/night after spending much of the week with D.C. United in Charleston, S.C.

Thursday kickaround: MLS schedule, D.C. United, Copa Libertadores, Eric Lichaj loan, Mexico-Bosnia

*At long last, just four-plus weeks until the season starts, the 2011 MLS schedule is ready! The league will post the full calendar later today.

D.C. United news & notes

*Midfielder-forward Chris Pontius' hamstring issue is similar to the problem that former D.C. United captain Ryan Nelsen had with Blackburn Rovers in 2006.
