Capital Construction: Allsopp for 2011?

New feature explores the rebuilding of capital club D.C. United
Allsopp for 2011?

WASHINGTON — As any frustrated local driver will tell you, the streets and roads of the Washington, D.C., region have been awash with construction and renovation crews lately.

Many long-neglected infrastructure projects deemed "shovel-ready" have received funding from TIGER (Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery) grants and other elements of the federal government’s economic recovery plan. The resulting traffic disruption invokes short-term pain, but it's a modest price for a more effective transportation network in the future.

Q&A: D.C. United's Clyde Simms

Q&A: DC's Clyde Simms

WASHINGTON – After establishing himself as the club’s first-choice defensive midfielder in 2007, Clyde Simms became a near-constant presence in the D.C. United lineup, logging a remarkable 6,836 total minutes over two seasons to cement his reputation as the club’s “iron man.”

But 2010 has been a very different story. The Jamestown, N.C., native has been hounded by a variety of health problems ever since preseason, routinely robbing the Black-and-Red of a pivotal presence in the heart of their squad.

Last week, FIFA inspectors completed their visit to Qatar, the final stop on a globe-spanning tour of the nine bidders vying to host either the 2018 or 2022 World Cup. 

The Middle East nation's chances took a hit when Harold Mayne-Nicholls, head of the inspection team, said the bid presented "a number of logistical challenges," but a surprise appearance by Zinedine Zidane impressed FIFA. The French legend passionately argued that it was time for a nation in the region to host the World Cup.

Olsen, DC change routine

WASHINGTON — Ben Olsen has been D.C. United’s interim head coach for less than two months, but he’s already learned a few tricks of the trade—like avoiding the media in the days after a tough loss.

Citing the suspension he incurred in Saturday night’s 3-1 loss to Houston, Olsen took a rain check, so to speak, on answering questions after a rare Monday training session this week.
