Subjectively scoring the Black and Red's Win.

On a day where D.C. United braved the elements and a sudden and unexpected change in plans, it took the heroics of a guy coming back into his form for the Black and Red to come away with the full three points in a 1-0 win over the Los Angeles Galaxy.

The Last Word on D.C. United 1-0 Los Angeles Galaxy: Finding the Status Quo

We attempt to wrap a bow on Saturday's win and wonder if this is the short-term normal.

D.C. United continues to limp along without their offense due to injury and suspension, and in the Los Angeles Galaxy, their opponent was also missing their offense due to international duty, and the play was every bit as one would expect with lineups like these.

Opposition 11: What kind of lineup can D.C. United expect out of the LA Galaxy Saturday?

Thanks to the international window, it's the right time for United to face the Galaxy.

Normally figuring out the lineup for a Bruce Arena-coached team isn't too complicated. He's not really a tinkerer, though last season LA did spend a couple of months in a diamond before going back to the 442 they won MLS Cup with.

With limited options, there isn't much change to Ben Olsen's lineup versus the LA Galaxy.

After a stinging loss to the New York Red Bulls, D.C. United must face another old foe as the LA Galaxy come to town this Saturday. With a number of players still injured or suspended, Ben Olsen will have much of the same options as he did last weekend; they will just have to find themselves in better positions and with better ideas in order to pull the full three points.

It's been nearly seven years since D.C. United beat the LA Galaxy. For that reason alone, this is a huge game for the Black-and-Red, but there's a lot more on the line than the idea of breaking a streak.

The Galaxy may be without Keane and Zardes, but they'll still bring a strong team to RFK tonight.

Optimists will look at the timing of this D.C. United game against the LA Galaxy and be thankful. LA, having flown across the country, is missing Robbie Keane, Gyasi Zardes, and Jaime Penedo. Keane and Zardes, in particular, would both individually be huge absences: Keane is either the best or second-best forward in MLS, while no one on the Galaxy roster has the mix of speed, size, and exuberance that Zardes brings to the table.

10 things we learned from MLS gameweek 2

Here are the 10 things we learned from MLS gameweek 2:

1. A Little Joy For NYCFC

NYCFC's rollout was rough. It ranged from brutally mismanaged to the deliberately misleadingin the signing of Frank Lampard. The team still doesn't have a stadium plan, the New York Yankees are moaning about their use of Yankee Stadium, and what became painfully obvious over the last year was that MLS saw Manchester City's money, saw the New York City location, and rushed a franchise to debut before it was ready.
