The U.S. Men's National Team played a match on Sunday. It wasn't a particularly good match and it wasn't a particularly fun match. Largely, it was boring, disjointed and stagnant, even for a January Camp conclusion.

Still, it was a match that created several talking points and left several impressions from a U.

D.C. United will start the post-Bill Hamid era with two veteran goalkeepers, with Jeffrey Carlisle of ESPN and Steve Goff of the Washington Post that David Ousted has signed with the team. He will join late-season starter Steve Clark in the battle to replace Hamid, the unquestioned starter for the past seven seasons who left for FC Midtjylland this fall.

Is Clark the man to replace United's best-ever goalkeeper?

The end of the transfer window saw D.C. United make a remarkable splash in the transfer market. The moves, all unveiled on August 10th, made clear sense. United needed midfield and attacking upgrades all season. A week later, though, they added one more new player to the list, and the addition of Steve Clark was a little more difficult to explain.

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.

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.

Not many (any?) followers of D.C.

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.
