DC United Season Over: Playoffs begin.

Due to Sara being sick, I wasn't able to make it out to RFK to see United fall to Columbus in the final match of the 2007 regular season. I periodically checked the MLSnet match tracker as Comcast was showing the Caps game instead. Other than the injuries to Emillio and Moreno, this loss really doesn't have me that worried.

I am not that worried about the playoffs, even though we are facing a pretty hot Chicago Fire club that seems to always have United's number in the post season. I am not worried because this group of guys seems to have a different "air" about them than previous United teams. Hell, even the team that advanced to the Eastern Conference finals last season didn't have the swagger that this group of guys does.

I have faith that Tom Soehn will get his guys rested enough and prepared enough for the Fire this Thursday night. From what Steve Goff is reporting, Emillio and Moreno should have both recovered from their knocks in time for the away match.
