A referee issued D.C. United’s Luciano Acosta a red card. Then, at the urging of his opponent, he rescinded it.

CHESTER, Pa. — In the 74th minute of an MLS match Saturday at Talen Energy Stadium, referee Sorin Stoica issued a red card to D.C. United’s Luciano Acosta. The Argentine playmaker had challenged Philadelphia’s Haris Medunjanin from behind along the sideline near midfield. It was worthy of a foul, maybe a caution, but certainly not […]

D.C. United is thwarted by Philadelphia goalkeeper Andre Blake in 1-0 loss

CHESTER, Pa. – D.C. United hit the midway point of the season Saturday with another empty performance, a 1-0 defeat to the Philadelphia Union. But unlike so many matches during this disappointing campaign, United didn’t need to pin the blame on an absence of scoring opportunities. The chances were there, but on two bids by […]

Deshorn Brown took a long journey to D.C. United, but he’s no journeyman

Deshorn Brown took a long journey to D.C. United, but he’s no journeyman

Soccer, the world’s game, is a transient profession by nature, marked by opportunity in distant lands and susceptible to the whims of an owner or coach. At 26, Deshorn Brown already knows the business well: He’s a Jamaican forward who attended college in Alabama and Florida, launched his career in Colorado, sought adventure in Norway […]

How bad is D.C. United’s scoring drought? 33 MLS players have more assists.

How bad is D.C. United’s scoring drought? 33 MLS players have more assists.

Five years ago in Germany, fans of goal-starved FC Magdeburg shifted around the vacant end zone stands and followed the movement of the ball while pointing fluorescent cardboard arrows at the net. D.C. United supporters might soon be tempted to take similar action. United has gone scoreless in three consecutive MLS matches, in six of […]

Offensive woes continue to dog D.C. United in 2-0 loss to Toronto FC

D.C. United has not scored a goal in the run of play since late April, a incomprehensible rut stretching 665 minutes, including a dour 90 Saturday during a 2-0 defeat to Toronto FC before 28,627 at BMO Field in Ontario. United (4-8-3) went scoreless for the sixth time in seven matches and 10th overall. The […]

D.C. United was big time vs. Christos FC. Now it’s looking up at glittering Toronto FC.

Four days after playing against a team of part-timers who compete for free, D.C. United will face MLS’s fattest payroll. Having dodged an upset against an ambitious amateur side in the U.S. Open Cup, United has pivoted back to league play: Saturday night’s away match against front-running Toronto FC and its trio of marquee players, […]

With most of the intriguing matchups between upper and lower tier teams coming to an end this week, the fun portion of the U.S. Open Cup is almost over as attention turns to the MLS vs. MLS games in the 103-year-old tournament. Three upsets Wednesday vaulted two teams from the second-flight USL (FC Cincinnati and […]

Soccer’s true charm lies not in the grind of league competition, but in cup matchups such as Tuesday night’s tasty affair between a top-flight team (D.C. United) and a band of brothers with amateur status and big hearts (Baltimore’s Christos FC). Full professionals squared off against a loan officer, a plumber, an x-ray technician and […]

D.C. United comes close, but goals remain elusive in scoreless draw vs. Galaxy

In the dying moments of a 0-0 draw Saturday, Ian Harkes’s shot streaked toward the bottom right corner of the Los Angeles Galaxy’s net, a long-awaited breakthrough for a team famished for a goal. It had been a month since D.C. United last scored at home, five weeks since it had converted in the run […]

A quiet rookie from D.C. United’s backyard shined brightly in his first MLS start

D.C. United’s 2-0 defeat in stormy Orlando on Wednesday was marked by conspicuous flaws: bungled scoring opportunities and defensive errors by two trustworthy players that resulted in goals. Amid the darkness, United‘s most inexperienced player, Chris Odoi-Atsem, was a bright light in his first pro start. Providing relief at right back, the 2017 first-round draft […]

D.C. United squanders chances and falls to Orlando City on the road, 2-0

ORLANDO — D.C. United doesn’t keep the ball for sustained periods or score very often. Out of necessity, the low-budget lineup is in constant flux. Of late, the results have been better on the road than at home. United is the bluest of blue-collar sides and, without a fluid attack, can’t afford to squander the […]
