DC United Recap

Another draw. 1 more point. Wash, rinse, repeat.

It seems to be the same story these days with United. We get a 1-0 lead and give up a goal in the second half and draw 1-1. Do we know how to get 3 points anymore?

Granted even with the draw we did gain 1 point on Chicago in the East and 1 point on FC Dallas in the Supporters Shield race, but 1 point here and there is not going to help us in the playoffs. I know that with the one point, United cannot finish lower than 2nd in the East, but damnit, we had a 13 match unbeaten streak! We ran away from the league and now it looks like the league is going close that gap, and might over take us. WTF!??

D at DCenters feels that the players are tired and have lost focus. I feel he might be correct. It might be a good idea to have Jaime and Christian sit out the next two matches and train a little lightly, just enough to maintain fitness? Does Freddy need a week off as well?

Based on the play of our reserves last week, I say give Gomito and Moreno two matches off, have the reserves get more match experience and gear up for the playoffs. Might not be the greatest of ideas, but as we seem to be hitting the wall earlier in matches than we did earlier in the season, do we really have any other choice?

One note, it seems that Ben Olsen has been gifted a MLS sponsored holiday by picking up his 5th yellow card and now must sit out the Chicago match. Maybe have him go camping, clear his mind. Either that or get him laid.

You think you're disappointed? Try pulling for New England, tied for first with two other teams as MLS's "tyingest" team. The shitbags.

Anyway, just having some yuks. And sympathethizing. I know what relentless ties does to a fan...
