Positively Room for Improvement

A decent performance from D.C. this weekend, but the team is frustrated
Room for Improvement

For some teams in Major League Soccer, clear improvement from Week 1 to Week 2 would have been enough to please the coaches, players, and fans. But not for D.C. United. For D.C., the improvement was expected and it was important, but with back-to-back losses to begin the season, the thing that matters most is the bottom line. There are no moral victories, and the coaches, players, and especially the fans are starting to get a little cranky. Rightly so.

The weeks before the season starts usually bubble with
optimism. Tickets are sold, offseason acquisitions are trumpeted, returning
players express their intentions to improve on past performances. There’s
potential all around, and universal eagerness to dive back into the game after
the long winter layoff.

Tradition is a big deal at D.C. United. The word is savored
by fans, routinely falls from the lips of club officials and even adorns the
back collar of the team’s jerseys.

TECNICO D.C. UNITED CURT ONALFO

Sobre Christian Castillo:
Jugó bien, es un jugador muy talentoso. Es un jugador que entiendo los dos lados de la pelota, defiende bien. Está todavía adaptandose a nuestra Liga pero tuvimos que sacarlo por la lesión que tiene pero está haciendo muy buen trabajo.

Sobre Santino Quaranta:
Si, absolutamente. Yo creo que jugo muy bien en la mediacancha. Alla en Kansas es muy dificil jugar en el mediocampo porque la cancha es tan chiquita pero el mejoró su juego bastante y me gustó mucho.
