Five players from the District will spend most of their time in RVA
The Richmond Kickers announced today the five players that D.C. United will send on loan to the USL club: Chris Durkin, Alhaji Kamara, Maxim Tissot, Chris Odoi-Atsem, and Eric Klenofsky. These players will be on indefinite loan, but are eligible for recall at any time.
I'm not sure what else you need, but we got a ton.
Hi there. Anything going on today? Oh yeah, this I guess. It's a good thing a crap ton of links are here to tide you over until 3.
A sleeping giant stirs as DC United finally build their own home (MLS): Charlie Boehm with the must-read of the day.
United looked their best in 3-2 win over Philadelphia Union
After doing so well during the second half of 2016, D.C. United decided to stand pat for the most part this offseason. Sebastien Le Toux and Jose Ortiz were the two biggest signings, but both appear to be likely substitutes rather than starters.
The left back joins the Black-and-Red after two trial stints
D.C. United announced today that they signed Canadian defender Maxim Tissot to the club after his successful trial during this preseason. Tissot joins the team after spending the back half of 2016 with the Ottawa Fury (then of the NASL) after being waived by the Montreal Impact.
The Black-and-Red are renting out an international roster spot for 2017
D.C. United announced today that they've traded an international roster spot for the 2017 season to the Montreal Impact. In exchange, they've acquired $75,000 in general allocation money (GAM). The move leaves United with five international roster spots, four of which are occupied by Julian Buescher, Luciano Acosta, Alhaji Kamara, and Jose Ortiz.
Spring breakers, stadium rights and more today.
Some of you may be sleeping in because of the holiday. To others of you, good Monday.
Hey, did you hear D.C. United received final approval to build Audi Field at Buzzard Point? On the off chance you didn't get the chance to look at things Friday, there is some leftover stuff from Goff here and here, here (Soccerwire) and here (Clad Global).
There isn't much drama at the end of D.C. United's roster
D.C. United has confirmed to Black and Red United that the team has released all of the trialists from the first part of preseason camp, save for Maxim Tissot. Tissot has impressed so far as a potential backup for Taylor Kemp, and Steve Goff has reported that the team has offered Tissot a contract.
US Open Cup play tonight. Curtin on summer transfer window plans. Alberg up for Player of the Month. New USWNT Olympic kit. More.
Needing to stay in the playoff race, the Philadelphia Union hope to gain three points from a last place team that's already stolen five points from them.

By DAN KARELL
Due to Real Salt Lake's participation in the U.S. Open Cup final on Tuesday, rookie forward Devon Sandoval was given a rare chance to start and he took full advantage of the opportunity.
On the road at the Vancouver Whitecaps, Sandoval's ninth minute goal proved the difference in RSL's 1-0 victory on Saturday.
