First one:
We flew up to Providence, RI for the 1999 MLS Cup Final at Foxboro. Upon return to the airport that night after beating the LA Galaxy (again), about 30 to 40 D.C. United supporters were all waiting for the same flight back to Baltimore and we started chanting "D.C. U-ni-ted!!....D.C. U-ni-ted!!" at the boarding area, much to the concern and/or amusement of other passengers making their way through the airport.

A loss is always tough to take, especially in the playoffs. The fact that it was against the New York Red Bulls is like putting salt in the wound. But, the good news is they have to come to RFK on Saturday (buy tickets). This series is far from over. To finish off the weekend trip, here are five observations about our trip to New Jersey in no particular order.

Post-Match Quotes: November 2, 2014

"It’s not over. Other teams have done it before and we can do it. This is a group that can."
Post-Match Quotes

D.C. United head coach Ben Olsen

On New York Red Bulls tonight:
I think New York put a whooping on us. They were very good, and we weren’t. You know like I said about halfway through the first half.

On their shortcomings tonight:
Well in a game like this you have to have everybody play well, and we had very little of that. Our passing was poor, we lacked ideas, it wasn’t for lack of want, it just was an off night. It’s not good timing to happen.

It wasn’t the start D.C. United was hoping for, but a 2-0 loss to the New York Red Bulls at Red Bull Arena is nothing the Black-and-Red cannot overcome.

Of its nine loses this season, five were followed immediately with a win. United scored two or more goals in 16 of its 34 regular season games, 14 of which were wins.
