Hello and welcome for landing here. If you’re wondering what this page is all about, well let me introduce myself first.
My name is James, I’m a Brit and I’m a DC United fan. I’m also a Middlesbrough fan too. I caught the MLS bug many years ago now, a little bit when the legendary Jaime Moreno was playing, but more so when Freddy Adu first came about. Thank you to the management game Football Manager, this gave me a great insight into how MLS works, from things like the salary cap, to the SuperDraft, to the MLS Playoffs. And now, MLS is even on Sky Sports in the UK, so I get to see my team play live on TV. But nothing beats being there.
That picture is me in the middle, my wife and then Joe on the left. This was my 1st taste of MLS in real life. An absolutely great experience and one that left me with memories that will last a lifetime. I joined up with the Screaming Eagles and their tailgate event. I got in touch with them through Instagram and they welcomed us both with open arms. They showed us around, brought us to the stadium and were incredibly friendly. Friends for life I say. The bug has been gnawing away at me though and I’ve been thinking about doing this for a while. Now I’ve gone ahead and done it. So I hope you join me on this journey, become not just DC United fans, but MLS fans in general too. I cannot wait to be back there in April and I’ll be keeping this updated throughout the season and years to come. So without much else to say, I’ll leave you with one thing.
