HOUSTON — Every time the chant rang out from the supporters sections at Robertson Stadium, you’d know the veteran goalkeeper had just made another save:
“You’ll never beat Pat Onstad.”
That refrain was heard a number of times during Onstad’s career in Houston, especially when the club was winning back-to-back MLS Cups in 2006 and '07. His stellar play was a big reason for the Dynamo’s success as the Canadian international was a security blanket for one of the league’s best defenses.
WASHINGTON – The start of the 2011 season certainly didn’t go as planned for D.C. United defender Jed Zayner.
After enduring and pushing through the rigorous preseason schedule, the sixth-year veteran went down with a hamstring injury in the first game of the season against the Columbus Crew and hasn’t returned since.
His recovery time was then extended when he re-aggravated the injury a few weeks ago. However, Zayner finally returned to full training this week is ready to go if called upon for Friday’s matchup at Houston (8:30 pm ET; Fox Soccer).

BOYDS, Md. – For the first time since 2002, D.C. United won’t be playing in the US Open Cup.
Tuesday night’s 3-2 loss to the Revolution saw United knocked out in the qualifying phase of the competition, as a trio of defensive miscues went punished by New England. DC fell behind 3-0, and a furious second-half rally came up just short.
This despite controlling play for most of the first half and controlling possession. However, New England made their chances count, punishing three defensive lapses to come away with the win.
BOYDS, Maryland. – El mediocampista
hondureño del D.C. United, Andy Najar, aseguró estar feliz por haber regresado

Estados Unidos Lamar Hunt.
“Estoy bien contento por la oportunidad
que me dio hoy el entrenador pero lamentablemente la victoria no se nos dio”,
dijo Najar sobre la grama del Maryland SoccerPlex instantes después de
finalizado el partido.
