‘They’re good, we’re not’: D.C. United’s Ben Olsen takes blame after loss to Chicago

D.C. United began a three-game homestand this month glowing with optimism after starting to show signs of becoming whole. On Saturday, however, United completed the once-promising stretch with three defeats, no goals and a growing, almost desperate, need for roster upgrades this summer. Ben Olsen’s gang barely made an impression in the 1-0 defeat to […]

D.C. United struggles to score and is missing its top attacker. Now it faces Schweinsteiger.

A D.C. United team that doesn’t score often will attempt to salvage a disappointing homestand Saturday without its most important attacking player while also trying to fend off a surging opponent. Luciano Acosta will serve a one-match suspension for receiving a red card during a 4-0 defeat to the Philadelphia Union last weekend. In sifting […]

D.C. United is routed by Philadelphia, 4-0; Luciano Acosta sent off early in second half

D.C. United Coach Ben Olsen pinned the ludicrous margin of defeat Saturday on playmaker Luciano Acosta’s red card early in the second half. Undermanned and out of sorts, United couldn’t keep up with the Philadelphia Union and endured a 4-0 loss, matching the worst home setback in club history. But even before the ejection, which […]

If D.C. United wants to keep RFK Stadium open in MLS playoffs, it must start winning there

Layers of white banners with black, block imprint smother nine faded-magenta rows in section 461 of RFK Stadium’s crusty upper deck. Before the second half of every D.C. United home match begins, a military member peels away one sheet as part of an eight-month countdown to the team’s long-awaited departure from the East Capitol Street […]

Ben Olsen bemoans D.C. United’s ‘lack of composure and courage’

Three days removed, D.C. United Coach Ben Olsen was not as angry Tuesday as he was Saturday about his team’s first-half performance during a 1-0 home defeat to the Montreal Impact. He did, though, review video of the match, and his level of disappointment remained elevated. “It’s a half where we can make a play […]

‘Concussions are scary’: D.C. United’s Steve Birnbaum describes recent head injury

D.C. United’s Steve Birnbaum took two knocks to the head last year, resulting in blood loss but no concussions.

His good fortune expired […]

First, knee surgery. Then, a blood clot. D.C. United’s Rob Vincent on comeback trail.

Based on the original timetable, D.C. United’s Rob Vincent should have been close to returning to active duty by now. The English midfielder underwent surgery March 22 to repair meniscus damage in his left knee, a routine procedure sidelining a player four to six weeks. Instead, he is facing another one to two months because […]
