What were your first impressions of D.C. United?
Enzo Concina: It was very positive. There are some limits here, but all the guys are great. I was taken in very well. I was happy with all the guys. It’s a team inside the team. There is a lot of teamwork around the team. It’s a very positive place. People are doing multiple things; I admire that. They’re doing things that they’re not supposed to, but they’re doing it with their heart.
D.C. United today announced that homegrown goalkeeper Bill Hamid and forward Eddie Johnson have been named to the U.S. Men’s National Team (USMNT) roster for its upcoming match against Mexico on Wed., April 2. Both players will report to Phoenix, Ariz., on March 30 for training and will return to D.C. on Thursday, April 3.
In the second week of spring, on March 25, D.C. United practiced at the RFK Auxiliary training fields in snow. Not just some light flurries, but my-left-big-toe-is-frozen-because-I-stepped- in-a-deep-pile-of-snow, snow. While the highly coveted neon orange soccer ball would have been a nice touch, the Black-and-Red kept the traditional white ball out at training. Thanks a lot, #DCUEqpt
I chose the above picture, from a few Pablo Maurer sent over, for two reasons. One, I like to see our players having fun. Two, Perry Kitchen is not panicking. In fact, he is building a snowman out of soccer balls. Which leads me to my first thought: it's weird we add a K to panic when writing panicking.
D.C. United today announced that the Club will be loaning four players to the Richmond Kickers this season as part of the two clubs’ affiliation agreement.
