Clyde Simms nearing a career milestone

Simms nearing milestone

After starting on Sunday against Philadelphia, it seems safe to assume that Clyde Simms is likely to be in the starting line-up this weekend against Chivas USA. Clyde has been on the field more than any other player since 2005 when he joined United. The next time Clyde sets foot on the field for United, he will take part in his 150th game as a member of D.C. United. The 150-game milestone is a remarkable one which very few D.C. United players have reached. Only five other players have played 150 matches or more with D.C. United, and with his next appearance, #19 will become #6.

Based on the post-match comments from D.C. United’s 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union, it was pretty clear that the players and coaches felt that Danny Allsopp’s opportunistic goal in the 22nd minute was absolutely critical to collecting the win.

The Philadelphia Union have been snake-bitten by errors all season, and in Sunday's 2-0 loss to D.C. United, they managed to shoot themselves in the foot once more.

Afterward, manager Peter Nowak refused to mince words.

“I told the guys in the locker room, I’m extremely disappointed, not only with the result, but with the way we played,” he said. “There was no substance in the whole game today. From the back, with the simple mistake we could have cleaned up, and in the overall game, even offensively."

Ben Olsen has been a party to dozens and dozens of D.C. United victories at RFK Stadium over the past decade or so,but he’ll probably appreciate Sunday’s 2-0 victory over the Philadelphia Union a good deal more than most of them.

The occasion itself, a late-summer meeting between two teams at the bottom of the standings, might pale in comparison to the man-of-the-match performances and MLS Cup wins of his playing career, but it marks Olsen’s first-ever victory as a head coach and offers priceless relief to his long-suffering team.
