The Black-and-Red open their regular season campaign tonight against the Los Angeles Galaxy, it’ll be interesting to see who’ll be in the starting 11. Like the Galaxy, D.C.

Drogba in top form, scores both goals in victory over United

The Black-and-Red didn’t play an awful game, it was actually rather well played for the most part. The first eleven minutes or so just didn’t go there way, mostly in part to a 37-year old striker that refuses to act his age. There were just two miscues, but with a forward with the class of Didier Drogba, two is too... Read More

Hamid called up to National team, Opare to stay in D.C.

It’s no secret that D.C. United’s goalkeeper is one of the best in the league, well technically the best until the crown is taken away from him. He was dubbed the Allstate goalkeeper of the year, tallying 14 wins last season with 10 shutouts. Hamid’s been just as amazing this season, the only negative being something he couldn’t help.

Hamid’s brilliance, Birnbaum’s equalizer helped United salvage a point on the road

The Black-and-Red left Colorado last night with a result, it may not have been three points but it was certainly better than a fourth consecutive loss. A win would have allowed United to clinch the league’s first playoff berth this season, that may have to wait until next week when the host Columbus at home in RFK. The Rapids were... Read More
