Predicted United States national team squad for the 2018 World Cup

Who could be on the roster for Russia 2018? Right after the 2014 World Cup, I gave my way-too-early prediction for the 23-man roster to represent the United States in Russia in 2018. Oh man, I was so wrong. So bad. Two years later, we all have a better idea of who could/couldn’t be on the roster. Especially after seeing the squad finish 4th at Copa America Centenary, it's much clearer. So, I give you my updated still-way-too-early prediction, which will also probably not be right at all. Goalkeepers: Brad Guzan*, Bill Hamid, Evan Horvath (Tim Howard, Sean Johnson, Zack Steffen) Guzan...

Monday Freedom Kicks: Frozen in Carbonite

We look at the weekend for D.C. United, the Washington Spirit, Orlando sports teams, and Len Bias. Hi there. Have Chile stopped scoring against Mexico yet? I kid. I also included this picture from Saturday's D.C. United game. Recaps of D.C. United's scoreless draw with the Houston Dynamo from us (with more from us here), MLS (with more from them here) and the Washington Post. Dynamo Theory has everything you want from the Forever Orange side of things.

Different game, same old story with Bill Hamid saving D.C. United

United's #28 made two crucial saves in stoppage, as United picked up a valuable point on the road against the Houston Dynamo It was getting late in the tilt between D.C. United and the Houston Dynamo on Saturday evening, and goalkeeper Bill Hamid hadn't had much to do for 90 minutes. Sure, he cut out a couple of crosses, and got a slight touch to a Will Bruin shot early in the second half to push it off the post. But it looked like United would get out of Houston with a point without needing the spectacular from Hamid. The Black-and-Red managed the point in a 0-0 draw with the Dynamo, but...

Dynamo show glimpses in Barrett's home MLS debut

The defense was compact and the maintained the shutout. Now the Dynamo have to figure out how to consistently find the back of the net. DC United goalkeeper Bill Hamid came up big on the last play of the match, denying the Dynamo a goal on a point-blank header from a corner kick that would have one the match. Instead, the Dynamo settled for the 0-0 draw on Wade Barrett's first official match as interim head coach. Before the match, Barrett – former team captain during the 2006 and 2007 MLS Cup winning squads – was greeted by the home crowd with a standing ovation. Once the match...

Bill Hamid's heroics persevere a 0-0 draw for D.C. United against the Houston Dynamo

A tepid affair came alive in stoppage time, as Bill Hamid twice denied the Dynamo winning goals in a 0-0 draw Bill Hamid was once again the difference for D.C. United, as the Black-and-Red held out for a point in a 0-0 draw with the Houston Dynamo on Saturday evening. An uneventful 90 minutes came alive in stoppage time, as Hamid was forced into point-saving blocks on efforts from Mauro Manotas and Raul Rodriguez. United didn't have many chances of their own to win the game, as they were forced to play a starting eleven similar to the one that earned a draw on the road against New England...
