Barklage's development moving at a good clip for United

The new MLS collective bargaining agreement, crafted on the
eve of the season, mandates a bump in club salary strictures and significantly
raises the wages paid to rookies and other young players. But to veterans of
the developmental roster designation, some frugal habits prompted by miserly
reserve salaries die hard.

To wit, D.C. United second-year pro Brandon Barklage still
cuts his own hair.

“I’ve cut my hair for the last six years, just buzzing, just
using the guards and everything,” he explained recently. “It saves a lot of
money and time.”

Every time that I think I have witnessed the last unthinkable, beautiful moment of Jaime Moreno’s glorious career, he comes up with something new and astonishing. Who else in MLS could have pulled off his shoulder fake to force the goalie to drop the ball at his foot? Chris Seitz is a good goalie, but, if he plays for 100 more years, he will never have another mistake like that one. Only Jaime could have made it happen: only Jaime.

The fluidity and effectiveness of D.C. United’s front line
has led to many automotive comparisons over the years, with playmakers like
Marco Etcheverry and Christian Gómez habitually described as drivers nimbly wielding
“the keys to the attack.”

With two goals in three matches, this year’s offensive
machine is sputtering, to say the least, with stalls and misfires suggesting
that some fine-tuning is needed. Santino Quaranta is the latest man to accept
the responsibility of a central creative role and his move into the middle has
been a bumpy ride thus far.

RECAP: Union 3 - United 2

Sébastian Le Toux scored a hat trick and the
Philadelphia Union brought soccer back to the City of Brotherly Love in style
on Saturday. The expansion side held off D.C. United 3-2 in front of a crowd of
34,870 in their home debut at Lincoln Financial Field.

Philly struck first with early pressure from the wings. In the
fifth minute, Roger Torres swung the ball in towards the near post for Le Toux,
who calmly slotted it home for the 1-0 lead.

Frustration for DC

Curt Onalfo is a dyed-in-the-wool optimist, and proud of it.

A cancer survivor, D.C. United’s head coach has overcome a
number of daunting obstacles in his personal and professional life, and he’s
not about to change that approach, even in the wake of a dispiriting 3-2
setback to Philadelphia Union on Saturday night, his team’s third straight loss
of the young season.
