WASHINGTON – It’s too early in the season to toss around the phrase “must-win” ahead of D.C. United’s trip to Toronto (Saturday, 7 pm ET, Fox Soccer in US, GOLTV in Canada). But as the team acknowledged this week, getting results away from RFK is becoming more of a necessity.

“We need to figure out how to get points, especially on the road,” assistant coach Chad Ashton said. “It’s early, but we do look at it as a very important game.”

WASHINGTON- El volante del D.C. United Clyde Simms, se ha convertido en un “Hombre de Hierro” en el sector de contención del mediocampo capitalino, y su seguridad y confianza lo han hecho un muy jugador consistente, de quien el club espera que en 2011 sea una pieza fundamental en la plantilla que dirige Ben Olsen.

Simms ha participado este año en sólo dos de los cuatro partidos de su club, en los que jugó 180 minutos, siendo parte de la rotación que está dando Olsen a sus jugadores del mediocampo, quizás el sector donde más abunda el talento en el equipo capitalino.

In the run-up to what could prove to be the most spectacular fortnight in the history of El Clásico — the great rivalry between Real Madrid and Barcelona — the whole world has caught Barcelona-itis.

Or near enough, anyway. The Passing Game — you can hear the capitals when someone is really pontificating — of the Blaugrana has brought football to an entirely new place, one of endless strings of one-touch builds, wing isolation and a premium on possession and letting the ball do the work.

The ball, after all, has no lungs. It will never get tired.
