We have to break down that loss before moving on

Well that sucked. Jason, Adam, and Ben have to talk about D.C. United's game against the Chicago Fire and how, for the first 10 minutes or so, D.C. United looked decent; it all went down hill from there. We discuss the deflated body language after the own goal, and the poor play of the forwards.

Fire extend unbeaten run in victory over D.C. United

Following a dismal month of August, the Chicago Fire have seen new life in September.

Veljko Paunovic's side extended their current unbeaten run to three matches, defeating D.C. United 3-0 on Saturday evening.

The hosts used an own-goal paired with two second-half goals to cruise their way to three points.

Can United spoil the Fire's attempts to get back to their mid-season best?

The last time D.C. United faced the Chicago Fire, the Black-and-Red were comprehensively outplayed en route to a defeat. The scoreboard at RFK Stadium only read 1-0, but realistically the Fire's dominance on the day would have been better reflected by 3-0 or 4-0.

For many reasons, Orlando City was in dire need of a victory, and the Lions got one on Saturday thanks to the play of their forward line.

We talk about Bruce trying Darlington Nagbe in a central role against Costa Rica, and whether or not Christian Pulisic should have been in the middle instead of out wide.

A loss on the road to the last place team in the East surely means the Revs will miss the playoffs.

With the New England Revolution's playoff hopes fading fast, they needed to find a way to win their first road game at RFK Stadium against a suddenly confident team.

Luciano Acosta's second half goal sunk the Revs on the road once again in a 1-0 loss and has given New England an even bigger hole to climb out of in the Eastern Conference.

It took a while for fans at RFK stadium to see a goal but D.C. United finally got their third win in a row with yet another one-goal win.

After a long wait, Luciano Acosta's effort proved to be all United needed to get a 1-0 win against the New England Revolution.

Sometimes, as D.C. United showed Wednesday night, you just have a team's number.

It feels weird to say it, but Saturday will see D.C. United arguably favored in a game for the first time in months. Between injuries and the fact that this season has slowly drifted out of their hands (3W-0D-6L run since mid-June), the New England Revolution are a bit difficult to get a read on.

Despite a long break between games, don't expect to see much in the way of change for Tata Martino's side

Atlanta United has had almost three weeks to figure out how to approach tonight's game against D.C. United, but I have strong doubts that they're going to change much. Tata Martino has his system, their roster hasn't really changed much, and there are few players outside of their normal starters that are making a real push to get more time.
