Soccer Insider: D.C. United news and notes

I caught up with D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper today to discuss several offseason issues … On forward Fabian Espindola shoving an assistant referee after the season-ending match against New York two weeks ago, Kasper said the club is expecting a suspension beyond the automatic two games for the straight red card. Espindola’s ban would begin at the start of the 2015 regular season and not affect his status for the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals in late February and early March. Read full article >>

Angel Di Maria had a golden opportunity to make it 3-0 before Olivier Giroud’s consolation for...

In the preseason, the Premier League looked reasonably settled. There was the top two of Chelsea and Manchester City, likely the only legitimate title contenders. Following them were four teams fighting for the remaining two Champions League positions: Arsenal, Manchester United, Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur. Some might have included Everton in the mix, and some with statistical models had the foresight to mention Southampton. Read full article >>

It’s a little weird that Beckham, the 15-year-old son of David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, signed with the rival of Manchester United, the team that signed Dad as a 17-year-old and with whom Dad won six English Premier League titles and a Champions League title.  But that was quite a while ago now and, besides, Brooklyn’s father went on to play for Real Madrid and the MSL’s Los Angeles...
