Poor defense dooms DC yet again on the road

Soft early goal was too much for United to overcome
DC's poor defense

Two weeks ago, a resurgent D.C. United side traveled to Seattle and shocked the Sounders with a 3-2 victory at Qwest Field in front of a national television audience. The result marked United’s first road victory of the season and suggested that Curt Onalfo’s side had turned a corner following a dreadful start to the 2010 campaign.

D.C. UNITED HEAD COACH CURT ONALFO

On the teams inability to finish offensive chances:
“You can attribute it to [not finishing offensive chances] or you can attribute it to not making plays when we needed to make plays defensively. I felt like we had momentum in the second half. We had a lot of the ball. We go to a 3-5-2 to try and get at least a point on the road, which we need, and our inability to make a big play defensively when we have too. Then our inability to finish off chances is what culminated this evening.”

DC's hopes on mid duo

WASHINGTON – Branko Boskovic and Pablo Hernandez are seven years apart in age and possess dramatically different backgrounds. But common circumstances have drawn them together since their arrival to D.C. United.

The Montenegrin and his Argentinean teammate are cohabitating in the Crystal City neighborhood of Arlington, Va., just across the Potomac River from DC, and also share a “knights in shining armor” role as midseason reinforcements for a team struggling to mount a late push for relevance in the MLS Eastern Conference.

WASHINGTON – D.C. United sent one representative to Wednesday night’s MLS All-Star Game, and a very deserving one at that, given Jaime Moreno’s dazzling exploits over a 15-year career. But United fans and officials were hoping the MLS original would have a teammate in Houston.

Formula for victory against Manchester United

The keys to victory for MLS lie in free kicks and possession
How MLS can beat Man Utd

HOUSTON – After Philadelphia had Manchester United on the ropes and
Kansas City defeated the Red Devils on Sunday, there is real hope the MLS
All-Stars can defeat the perennial EPL contenders in
Wednesday night's All-Star Game.

Add the fact that Manchester United is finishing up
preseason training and that their back line has not exactly proven a
defensive fortress, and it leads to the belief that a special result is
possible at Reliant.
