United readies itself for MLS game number eight this evening. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. local time (10:30 p.m. ET) and will be broadcast live on Fox Soccer Channel and Fox Sports en Español. The temperature is supposed to get up into the high 90's (and low 100's in some areas), so we're all hoping it cools down by game time. I'll be back with the lineup about an hour from kickoff, but for now here is a rundown of today's United-related news:
- Steve Goff writes about the two biggest problems Tom Soehn faces in the Washington Post.
- John Haydon's piece focuses on the longevity of Jaime Moreno - from the Washington Times.
- Charlie Boehm writes about United trying to overcome its recent struggles on the road at dcunited.com.
- Grahame Jones looks at the many different story lines in today's game in the Los Angeles Times.
