The diehard fans are still flocking out to their aging but lovable stadium, tailgating for hours and singing themselves hoarse all game. The players they cheer for remain proud professionals, working hard for themselves, their club and their earnest young coach.
But the mistakes keep happening, opportunity after opportunity goes begging and the losses continue to pile up for D.C. United in a season that seems destined to go down as the worst in the organization’s history.
WASHINGTON- El técnico interino del D.C.
WASHINGTON- Con goles del colombiano David Ferreira (min. 36), Eric Alexander (min.48) y Jeff Cunningham (min. 92) FC Dallas venció 3-1 D.C. United en una nueva derrota en la temporada de 2010, que lo deja al borde del abismo en su lucha por la clasificación a la postemporada de 2010.
WASHINGTON — This week, D.C. United team captain Jaime Moreno announced that he will leave MLS at the close of the season, bringing down the curtain on one of the league’s truly epic careers and signaling the end of an era for the capital club. The announcement adds another sad milestone in a year of great upheaval for the Red-and-Black.
WASHINGTON— Completamente contra la pared y matemáticamente obligado a ganar, el D.C. United recibirá al FC Dallas el sábado 14 a las 8pm ET en el estadio RFK, un partido que bien pudiera utilizar el tetracampeón para reintentar una hipotética recuperación, o comenzar a despedirse definitivamente de la Liguilla en la que ha sido hasta ahora su peor temporada desde su fundación en 1996.
Ben Olsen, D.C. United's interim head coach, and defender Dejan Jakovic discusses United's upcoming match against FC Dallas.
1. MLS CUP GOALS: Two of the four D.C. United MLS Cup championships carry the signature of Moreno. He sported bleached blond hair when he tallied his team’s first goal in the 37th minute of 1997 MLS Cup at rainy RFK Stadium. He was also the first on the score sheet at the 1999 MLS Cup as DC beat rivals LA Galaxy 2-0 for their third title.
Let’s get one thing straight: Jaime Moreno is not done. Yes, he announced that this will be his last season with D.C. United. And yes, his minutes and production—just one goal this season and only five starts—have diminished as his 36-year-old legs have slowly given way to time.
