Lineup spots suddenly at a premium for DC

United head to New Jersey with more than results at stake
Lineup changes for DC?

Points, pride and payback will be prime motivators for D.C. United in Saturday’s road match against the New York Red Bulls, with the visitors hoping to continue their climb up the standings while avenging a 2-0 home loss to their rivals on May 1.

But for some members of the United starting lineup, there’s also the considerable matter of asserting some job security before the international transfer window opens on Thursday. That’s when new signings Branko Boskovic and Pablo Hernandez become available to head coach Curt Onalfo, and everything could change.

WASHINGTON – Progress in the US Open Cup has offered D.C. United a welcome dose of success amidst a difficult league campaign this year. But the squad had to move on quickly from Wednesday night’s USOC round-of-16 victory over the Richmond Kickers, training early the next morning before jetting off to the West Coast in advance of Saturday’s meeting with the San Jose Earthquakes.

And the first of back-to-back road matches should reveal plenty about United’s midsummer prospects.

Ebb & Flow: All-Stars

Risers and fallers, who's hot and who's not … whichever way you put it, it's the ebb and flow of form and fortune that makes soccer interesting. Just as the commercial says, "In minute 23, you hate him … in minute 32, all is forgiven."
