Playoff Seed: #4
Let’s hope your D.C. United can do what the Washington Nationals could not, advance in the playoffs. (Too soon?)
The United get their chance against the Montreal Impact on Thursday, October 27th.
Entering as the #4 seed, they get a home game against the #5 seed Impact. Winner of this knockout game will play against one of the New York teams in a two-game home/away series. So if your United beat the Impact, they will get a home game on Sunday, October 30th.

Audacious Assertion: United 2, Impact 0

MLS Playoffs Knockout Game: Montreal Impact at D.C. United
Thursday, October 27, 2016
Season Record: 5-8-7 (22 points)
Your D.C. United are in a bit of a funk, going 1-2-2 (5 points) in their last five games, including a 4-1 spanking by Toronto last Saturday, July 23rd.
Starting this Sunday, July 31st, the United play four straight home games (and eight overall remaining) and have a good chance to right the ship for a chance at a playoff spot. They are currently in 8th place in the Eastern Conference, looking to climb the ladder.
First up are the 4th place Montreal Impact (29 points). The United need this game, so I’m confident they will step up and get a result.
Álvaro Saborio continues to lead the United with 4 goals on the season, but they need a lot more goals if they want to make 2016 interesting.

Time for a new ball and a new season
The beauty of the beautiful game (soccer, as if you didn’t know), is no matter the conditions, you can still play.
Snow, sleet, rain and mud, freezing cold, even sun, it is all good when it comes to kicking the ball around the pitch. As a kid, I played in all these conditions. Snow is the most fun, because it makes the game even harder.
So don’t let DC’s winter get you down, you can catch DC United’s season opener against the Montreal Impact this Saturday, March 7, at 3pm at RFK Stadium.
The weather should even be nice (comparatively), up to the mid-forties. Wear your scarves.
DC United enters the 2015 campaign with something to prove. They excelled in 2014 during the regular season, finishing with the third most points (59), but then fizzled badly versus the New York Red Bulls in the playoffs. Brutal.
Major League Soccer made a few changes for this season, expanding the league to 20 teams. Most notably they contracted Chivas USA (gone!) and added two new teams, Orlando City FC and New York City FC.
Get your tickets and get on the United bandwagon now.
