    Match Report: POR v DC

    Thoughts Firstly, it’s great to see DC getting back to back wins, and even better that it’s been on the road. No goals conceded too, it certainly feels like it has been a while, in fact, the last time DC got back to back wins was back in May, and they were at home for […]

    Thoughts This match was certainly a curveball in more ways than one. From the announcement of the lineup, and the introduction of Canouse as a right back, Rooney out through suspension, and a woeful run of form. The only pleasing performance had to be the game against LA Galaxy, a game in which they showed […]

    As a fan, this is tough to write. I’ve watched the Post-Match Quotes, and you can see how much Paul Arriola & Steve Birnbaum are gutted and disappointed in the performances of late. Ben Olsen states that they are still figuring out the best group. When you’re 29 games into the season, and you’re still […]

    Thoughts The scoreline definitely does not tell the whole story of the evening. DC had a strong lineup out, which included the return of Wayne Rooney, and with Kamara making the bench. Against the side who were bottom of the Western Conference, and we hadn’t been beaten by since 2013, this one, on paper, should […]

    Thoughts Coming into this game, there was a slight sense of optimism, cautious as it was, but optimism nonetheless. We’ve had a busy transfer week, 3 incomings, 2 of which were available to play last night. Only one made his debut, that was Felipe Martins. Thrown in at the deep end, more so down to […]

    Thoughts Where do I begin? This was one of the worst matches I’ve seen for a long time. Both sides not playing well at all, and neither lacking any conviction. From a DCU perspective, going forward we couldn’t hit the target, the only attempt being on target was a Rooney FK, so nothing from open […]

    Thoughts After the midweek win against Cincy, a lot of fans came into this one thinking we might be able to get a result here. 4 goals from open play, bit of swagger in the 2nd half and all was looking good. The big test was against the reigning MLS Cup champions. It wasn’t to […]

    Thoughts A fantastic result for DC United, not just the scoreline, but the fact that it was on the road, against a team we’ve not played yet in MLS, add in the recent form, this was a result that we so badly needed. The game got off to a sluggish start, as it seems to […]

    Match Report: DC 2-2 NE

    Thoughts This was a game that was truly a cliché of a game of two halves. The 1st half, well that excruciatingly painful, up until the 43rd minute when Arriola whipped the ball in for Leo Jara to get his 1st goal for the Black and Red. Everyone was abysmal in the 1st half. It […]
