Among the stories of resurgence throughout D.C. United in 2014, the quietest and perhaps most effective one gets the CoD/GoF treatment. Like Bill Hamid in the back half of D.C. United's starting 11, Luis Silva was a veteran from the 2013 campaign who managed to bolster his own performance with some battle tested and capable MLS talents with him. Silva managed to more than double his previous season-high of goals, scoring 11, tying him with Fabian Espindola for the team lead. Impressive enough (considering he scored as many goals as Espindola despite playing in 75% of the minutes Fabi did),...

D.C. United’s Bill Hamid, whose decision-making and maturation caught up with his shot-blocking skills this season, was named MLS goalkeeper of the year Wednesday. At 24, Hamid is the third-youngest recipient, behind U.S. national team veterans Tim Howard (22 in 2001) and Brad Guzan (23 in 2007). The only other United goalkeeper to win was Troy Perkins in 2006.

Hamid's season was one United fans have been hoping to see. After years of showcasing his raw talent only to betray his youth and...

Entering the season, there was no doubt Bill Hamid was our number one goalkeeper, as he has been the last several years, and we were hoping to see him take the next step and move even further into the discussion of elite goalkeepers in MLS.
