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.

Le Toux hat trick helps Union hold off D.C. in Philly debut
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.

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.

Preview: United vs Union

What’s At Stake?

The Union will host their first ever home game at Lincoln Financial Field and will welcome rivals D.C. United to town. Both clubs are pointless so far this season -- when it’s all said and done, that will change. Moving out of the Eastern Conference cellar is also a plus.

Remember When?
