So much for the Treble

At least I got the number of goals right.

DC United were dumped out of the USOC with a 3-0 defeat to the Chicago Fire in the Semi-Finals last night. Fielding a largely First Team side, United were under pressure for most of the mast, having 1 shot on goal in the first half and then allowing three goals in the second half. Chicago moves on to play the defending USOC Chumps, the LA Galaxy, who knocked off the Houston Dynamo 3-1 at HDC.

Ok, so we won't get three trophy's this season. Fine. We made it to the Semi-Finals of the USOC tournament this season, which is a plus considering United's usual ability to blow it in the first match that they face a MLS club. This means that we just have to focus on the league, which there is still rewards to be had.

I am not going to cry over this. We have the Supporters Shield and the MLS Cup to win, so lets get through the weekend of MLS sponsored holiday's and pick up 4 more wins to capture the Supporters Shield and secure CONCACAF play for next season.
