It was a wild day, which your faithful author can start to think about once he gets over all the Ls he's taken this year

Last night, the final hope I had for soccer in 2017 met a very 2017 end, as Maryland was eliminated on penalties in College Park. I'd like to point out that early on the night of October 9th, 2016, the Washington Spirit were one clearance away from a title.

D.C. United season review: Jared Jeffrey

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

He's not flashy, and that's alright

Since arriving in D.C. in 2013, Jared Jeffrey had never been a regular starter. Until this season, he'd never started as many as 15 league games, and 21 league appearances was his career high. But this season saw him set a new career-high in both league appearances, with 23, and starts, with 19, and even though he's not the flashiest player on the field, Jeffrey has qualities that make him important to the team.

There was so much about D.C. United's season to break down last week that we moved some of it to this week.

It looks like the floor will be clear for a significant rebuild after finishing last in the East

At media availability last week, D.C. United coach Ben Olsen hinted at forthcoming changes to the squad during this offseason. Phrases like "quite a bit" of roster turnover and having "a blank canvas" with which to build the roster were tossed about.

With no World Cup to play in, the United States is getting weird

The United States, in their first game since scandalously failing to qualify for the 2018 World Cup out of CONCACAF, has sent a mostly young and inexperienced side to face Portugal in this international window. The youth movement is by design, as the USMNT has nothing to play for any time soon.

How about position conversions?

Sean Franklin's 2017 season was a departure from the norm. For the first time since 2009 he played in fewer than 20 matches, appearing just 19 times in an injury-shortened season. He also began this season playing center back after having played right back for most of his career.

D.C. United has a defensive midfielder around which they can build for years

Of all of D.C. United's midseason acquisitions, Russell Canouse was the one with the most mystery surrounding it. Paul Arriola was the big splash, Zoltan Stieber had the pedigree of a player who could reliably produce in Major League Soccer, Deshorn Brown was the MLS veteran, and Bruno Miranda was the flyer on a promising young talent.

And a bit of a shock.

Hi. My one-year-old came into the weekend with two teeth, and left it with 4, with 2 well on their way. Toddler teething and their compensation for it isn't fun, so in between that and the break, things are light today, so have a heart.
