Last place hosts first place as United looks to salvage some pride

D.C. United's season is in dire straits. Starting with Toronto FC today, they probably need to put up 10 wins in 12 games. That would be hard for even the best United teams ever, and this one is not at that level. Most likely, we're at the point where players are trying to prove they deserve to be around in 2018, and there will be no bigger test than facing top-of-the-table TFC.

Know Thy Enemy: Revs-DC US Open Cup Edition

The East Region of the 2017 US Open Cup is all set, the Revs are the "top seed" and a home quarterfinal date awaits...if they can get past DC United.

Normally, a summer meeting between two teams near the bottom of the Eastern Conference wouldn't be that big of a deal.

The fifth round of the US Open Cup however is always a big deal, so we decided to bother our good friend Ben Bromley over at Black and Red United to discuss tonight's goalkeeper not named Bill Hamid that will repeatedly rob the Revs of good goals because it's Revs-DC.

United starts the toughest stretch of their season with their most difficult game of the season thus far

D.C. United was showing some modest signs of improvement heading into the international break, but they'll have to ratchet that up quickly today against league-leading Toronto FC. In particular, they're going to have to break out of a wretched run in front of goal, where they've scored just one goal - an ill-gotten penalty kick - in six games.

Reviewing wins is kinda fun.

Not many (any?) followers of D.C. United gave them much of a chance against the Vancouver Whitecaps, considering they were still banged up and flying across the country to play on the Caps' garage floor of a field. But hey, give the Black-and-Red credit for sneaking out of pretty and clean British Columbia with the points in a 1-0 win, their second road win on the season by the end of May, equalling the amount of road wins they had all of 2016.

Def gonna lose, guys.

It probably goes without saying, but I'll say it nonetheless: D.C. United are not playing well. Normally, a three-game home stint would end in some sweet, sweet points to buoy a team into a couple road trips, but the Black-and-Red are instead coming off three losses in a row.

The Chicago Fire traveled to Washington, DC on Saturday in search of their first away victory of 2017 and came home with all three points. They put away hapless DC United 1:0, a scoreline that flattered the home team. The Fire created a plethora of chances, and between the heroics of DC goalkeeper Bill Hamid and some of their own poor marksmanship, they missed an opportunity for a blowout win.

D.C. United was hoping to get some sort of result in a place (Yankee Stadium) they hadn't against a team (New York City FC) opening up a stadium for another team the previous week. But the 4-0 loss showed several different things of concern for fans, perhaps things beyond what could be dismissed as a one-off rout.

Hamid was initially ruled out for five to six weeks, but after undergoing successful surgery, he is optimistic to return in time for the 2017 season.
