The Last Word on D.C. United vs. Chicago Fire: Good Enough rather than Good

Black and Red United at related • 0 views

United didn't exactly put on a brilliant show, but they were the better team in the crucial moments against Chicago Saturday. That was good enough to clinch first place, but it won't be enough to make a run at MLS Cup.

The positive side of D.C. United's 2-1 win Saturday night is well-known: First place in the Eastern Conference was assured, and with it a spot in the 2015-2016 CONCACAF Champions League (not to mention the allocation money that MLS gives out to benefit that particular cause).

Fire Confidential | ChicagoNow at related • 1 view
DC United's current season is a case study for the Chicago Fire. After completing one of the worst seasons in MLS history in 2013 with only three wins, DC has bounced back to finish atop the Eastern Conference. By completely revamping their back line and most of the remaining eleven, save Perry Kitchen and Nick DeLeon, DC was able to rebuild in the course of one off season.

A win or draw will clinch first place in the East for United, who will host a Chicago Fire team that has been looking at these final games as an extended preseason after a very disappointing 2014.

Clinching first place in the Eastern Conference requires just one more point from D.C. United, and it's a deceptively important achievement.

Eddie Johnson makes his return to the MLS starting ranks as D.C. United look to lock up first place in the Eastern Conference.

D.C. United comes into this game with one thing in mind: locking up first place in the Eastern Conference. A draw or a win will do that for D.C. United, and they are playing against the draw kings of MLS, the Chicago Fire, but a win keeps them above other playoff teams in the race to host MLS Cup.

MLS doesn't have promotion and relegation – and no, it's almost certainly not happening in your lifetime – the playoffs function as the alternative drama to the race against the drop.
