Recap:
Late goal sends DC to playoffs, eliminates Crew



WASHINGTON – The drought is over.

For the first time in five years, D.C. United are going to the playoffs. Unfortunately for Crew fans, Columbus won’t be joining them.

The Crew were eliminated from the Eastern Conference playoff race after United pulled out 3-2 victory Saturday night at RFK Stadium in a passionate, dynamic, well-played match and Houston defeated Philadelphia.

United midfielder Marcelo Saragosa’s goal in the 59th minute leveled the score and assured D.C. a spot in the postseason before substitute Lewis Neal’s breakaway goal in stoppage time put the exclamation point on the celebration, much to the joy of the sellout crowd of 19,647 in the nation’s capital. Eddie Gaven and Jairo Arrieta scored for Columbus.

Re: DC United

DC not after another No. 9 after signing young DP Rafael


From the time D.C. United were eliminated from the postseason by the Houston Dynamo in the Eastern Conference Championship, Ben Olsen made it clear his top offseason target was an impact forward.

Two months later, Olsen and GM Dave Kasper believe they’ve found their man.

On Wednesday, Brazilian striker Rafael Teixeira de Souza signed with the club as a young Designated Player on a one-year loan followed by the option of a permanent transfer. The 20-year-old joins D.C. from Bahia of Serie A, where the 6-foot, 179-pound forward has made 36 first-team appearances and scored 10 goals.

Re: DC United

Richmond Kickers,
DC United Announce Partnership




Richmond Kickers News Release -- www.richmondkickers.com

Thursday, January 24, 2013

RICHMOND, Va. – In conjunction with the groundbreaking multi-year deal unveiled on Wednesday between MLS and USL PRO, the Richmond Kickers and D.C. United today announced that the clubs have entered into an affiliate agreement.

As a part of this arrangement with the Kickers, United will send a minimum of four first-team players – to be announced at a later date – on long-term loans to Richmond. Separated by a little over 100 miles, the two organizations worked closely together last year to organize loan spells for forward Long Tan and Homegrown defender Ethan White.

“We have had a long-standing relationship with the Richmond Kickers and we are thrilled to now have a formal partnership in place that will benefit both organizations,” said D.C. United General Manager Dave Kasper. “Many current and former D.C. United players have gained valuable experience while playing for the Kickers over the years, and we are excited to be working with a club who has a vision of excellence with everything from their professional team down to their academy and youth teams.”

Recap: D.C. United 0 - Columbus Crew 1

Olsen: energy and commitment level from the guys was exactly what we wanted


With just 35 days until the start of the 2013 season, D.C. United played against someone other than themselves for the first time this year after a long and grueling first week of preseason. United faced off at the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida against a familiar Eastern Conference foe, the Columbus Crew.

Report:
DC's DeLeon declines Trinidad call-up -- for now



Alright, US national team fans, you can calm down: Nick DeLeon is not suiting up for Trinidad and Tobago. At least not yet.

The D.C. United attacker told The Washington Post's Steven Goff on Monday that he has declined a call-up to represent his father's homeland for the Soca Warriors' friendly against Peru on Feb. 6. But he didn't completely close the door on doing so in the future, either.

“I grew up here and it’s always been my dream to play here,” the Phoenix native told Goff. “It felt pretty good to get invited, to be honest. It’s a big honor. But I don’t think it’s the right time.”

DeLeon's father, Leroy, is a native of Trinidad and a former T&T international. The younger DeLeon was also invited into camp last spring when T&T were preparing for CONCACAF Olympic qualifying, but he declined the invitation then as well.

I appreciate the commitment and loyalty this club has given me over the years,” Olsen said. “Hopefully I can continue to repay this organization with results and a team that our community is proud of."

United GM Dave Kasper was thrilled to seal the deal, which will now run through the 2014 season: “We are very excited about our future with Ben as our head coach.”

Report:
DC zeroing in on Buzzard Point for new stadium



D.C. United are no longer considering Baltimore for a new stadium, and that's because talks are progressing well with the D.C. Council on a proposed stadium at Buzzard Point, in the city's Southwest section.

That's the take-away from an exclusive report by The Washington Post's Steven Goff on Friday.

“Interaction with the city has been very positive and very productive,” United managing partner Jason Levien told Goff. “We’re pushing the right buttons and making things happen in a good way. … There is more than hope. We are very hopeful.”

The push for a new stadium for the Black-and-Red has gained traction in the last seven months since Levien and Erick Thohir, an Indonesian businessman, joined Will Chang as the team's investors/operators. The added capital, plus Levein's political savvy – he's worked in Washington for the Democratic party, as well as practicing law with Williams & Connolly – seems to have cleared away many of the roadblocks that have stalled all proposed stadium projects in D.C. for more than a decade

MLS clubs enter US Open Cup,
Dwayne De Rosario & Ben Olsen "get over it"



DIFFERENCES IN DC ARE RECONCILIABLE
Speaking of United's struggles, looks like coach Ben Olsen and his superstar player Dwayne De Rosario have worked out their little tiff. “We are both competitors and we are not always going to see eye to eye," DeRo told The Washington Post. You get over it. With the respect we have for each other, we put it aside.”
