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.

Moreno's Top 10 Moments

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.

Comment: Moreno’s impact

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.

WASHINGTON— D.C. United y el goleador boliviano Jaime Moreno anunciaron que la temporada de 2010 será la última del delantero con el equipo capitalino, con el que ha jugado prácticamente toda su carrera en la MLS desde la fundación del club en 1996.


“Después de reunirme con los directivos del club y conocer que no estoy en sus planes a partir de 2011 he decidido explorar otras opciones para continuar mi carrera”, dijo Moreno.


Pionero de la MLS y mayor goleador de la historia de la liga con 132 goles, Moreno es el único jugador en ganar con el D.C.

As scoring woes mount, United look for answers

Dry spells in front of goal will inevitably befall most teams at one point or another. But D.C. United’s scoring woes have grown to such drastic proportions that they have completely overshadowed the positive repercussions from last week’s coaching change, and essentially left the team unable to move forward on other fronts.

United have netted just two goals in their last seven league matches, and with 12 tallies overall, they look likely to smash the MLS record for fewest goals in a season (25 by Toronto FC in 2007) unless a dramatic reversal of fortune can be engineered.
