Season Record: 1-3-3 (6 points)
Your DC United couldn’t net a goal last Saturday after Toronto punched in a goal in the first minute of the match, so they fell 1-0 and remain at 6 points on the season. This was the third time they’ve failed to score in 2016. Despite the loss, the United are 12-8-4 against the Canadians all-time.
This Saturday, April 23rd, they host their third straight home game, this time against the New England Revolution. The Revs are 5th overall in the Eastern Conference at a mere 8 points, after going undefeated over their last four games. A victory by the United would vault them ahead in the table.
The Revolution will be looking for a bit of revenge in this game, since DC United bested them in the knockout round of last year’s playoffs, 2-1.

Audacious Assertion: United 2, Revolution 0
Editor’s Rant: The MLS is expanding to 24 teams by 2018 and 28 teams by 2020. Fine, the sport is taking off and many cities love their team (Seattle, anyone?). In the next few years, we’ll get teams like Los Angeles FC, Atlanta United FC and Minnesota United FC. Let me repeat the last two. Atlanta United FC and Minnesota United FC. That’s absolutely terrible. Two more teams with the name United?!? Is there no such thing as originality? Did DC United not protest loud enough? Bah.
