D.C. United vs. Columbus Crew Community/Site Player Ratings

We go through the pain a little bit here. D.C. United came back home to Estadio RFK to face a Columbus Crew SC team who was reeling in their own right. The Crew rolled out a new formation, frustrated the Black-and-Red players and faithful en route to a 2-0 win which left D.C. winless and goalless. So let’s make due with the scores, shall we? *** Bill Hamid: 5.5 | Community: 5.62 4 saves made, and guessed right on the PKs even if he didn’t get them. Active and competent in net as we’ve grown accustomed to, but going to need to pull a save out of his behind in the next match or two if...

We look at some moments of curiosity. Well, watching D.C. United keep its 2017 goals account closed for the time being with a 2-0 loss against Columbus Crew SC was hardly fun by any means, but in attempting to look deeper there may be some other causes of concern. First and foremost is Bill Hamid’s early game save. Um, Justin Meram had 5 goals and 13 assists in 2016, and someone may want to consider marking him. Perhaps Ian Harkes, but also Marcelo Sarvas (who was two full strides behind Federico Higuain moments before on a backtrack after being caught up front) is far out, man. ...

D.C. United vs. NYCFC Community/Site Player Ratings

We unpack the unpleasantness. D.C. United was hoping to get some sort of result in a place (Yankee Stadium) they hadn’t against a team (New York City FC) opening up a stadium for another team the previous week. But the 4-0 loss showed several different things of concern for fans, perhaps things beyond what could be dismissed as a one-off rout. And that is why we have the ratings game, so let’s take a look at your votes. *** Bill Hamid: 5 | Community: 5.09 5 shots on target by the pigeons, Bill saved 1. You could make the case he was at fault on both David Villa goals at a minimum, and...

Ian Harkes makes D.C. United debut in 4-0 loss on road to NYCFC

NEW YORK – D.C. United’s match against New York City FC was not 10 minutes old when Bill Hamid found himself sitting deep in his net after a futile effort, kicking at a ball that had already crossed the threshold. As the Yankee Stadium crowd roared its home-opening approval, Hamid slammed the cold turf with […]

D.C. United vs. Sporting KC Community/Site Player Ratings

We wrap up, pack up, and move on from Saturday. D.C. United opened up the last opening game of their time at RFK Stadium against Sporting Kansas City with big aspirations and thoughts of a win with a bunch of goals scored being a formality were on many minds. So when a scoreless draw occurred naturally there was cause for some disappointment. But that’s why the play the games, right? Anyway, on with the ratings! *** Bill Hamid: 7 (MOTM) | Community: 8.53 (MOTM) Saved five on the night for the clean sheet for the hosts, and has allowed one goal or fewer over his last five regular season...

We look at some things from the game. When you see a scoreless draw between two teams on the first weekend of regular season such as the one D.C. United and Sporting Kansas City engaged in Saturday, it would be a problematic thing for someone to try and look at GIFs from a contest such as that. But we’ll give it a shot, and encourage you to drop in moments of your own, if you have a GIF machine accessible. The first is Bill Hamid’s save of Benny Feilhaber’s free kick early in the game, which you’ve likely seen a bit, but I tried to preserve Feilhaber cursing in frustration at the...
