    Not a surprise, really.

    Will we ever score? Diceson said in the chat that if we don't score before the 9th minute against San Jose on Aug. 31st, we'll break the record held currently by KC.

    Nelsen to striker.

    I think we need to bring back RDA.

    Is no win a loss?

    Nick came up big again, and Convey and Quintanilla hustled all night. Prideaux and Nelsen were strong, and Pope struck a couple up close.

    Still, no goals. 418 minutes?

    No, not a surprise, but disappointing to say the least. I just wasted 3 good bottles of Taquiña and Paceña each listening to that crap.

    I didn't hear the whole game, but from what I heard on the webcast, it was an exciting match. Beninho played the full 100 minutes? I hope he doesn't come up lame tomorrow and miss the rest of the season.

    Thanks again, Nick & defense. Now if the offense would just hold up their end of the deal and score a goal or two, DC just might win a few games before the season is finished.

    At least we got the point on the road. The glass is half-spilled. :(

    I can usually enjoy a point on the road at Chicago. But seriously, 0-0???

    If we don't score, at a certain point, I don't take joy out of anything.

    The guys already ruined my b-day on Saturday, and now this!

    Lineup that started:

    -------------------- Rimando --------------------

    Pope -------------- Nelsen ---------- Prideaux

    ---------- Williams ------- McKinley --------------

    Namoff ------------- Etch ------------- Convey

    ------------- Q2 ----------- Curtis --------------

    Lassiter on for Curtis at 46
    Alavanja on for Namoff at 46
    Olsen on for Q2 at 70

    0-0 draw, again..

    Scoreless streak now standing at 431 minutes..

    Not good, not bad, at least we didn't lose..

    Don't look now, but we are now officially averaging less than a goal a game..

    Pathetic, truly pathetic..

    Etcheverry picked up a senseless yellow in overtime and now I believe he is suspended for the KC match due to passing the 31 caution points plateau.. There is some confusion as to why he would be suspended.. He got suspended from the Chicago match last week due to getting 3 yellows in consecutive matches which is an automatic 1 game suspension.. At that point, he was still 1 point shy of the 31 point barrier, which he now crossed tonight.. Hopefully Jaime will be back by then as it will have been two weeks off for Moreno by Aug 10..

    This All-Star break couldn't have come at a better time for this team as they can't seem to hit the ocean right now.. Maybe some time off and some rest (and getting Reyes and Villegas back, along with Moreno) will kick start this team to where they can actually score goals again..

    We'll see...

    I'm bummed I couldn't listen, but I'm more bummed by the outcome. I agree about the all-star stretch...if we can get Q2 integrated into the flow, Moreno and others match fit, and maybe even a new midfielder (I refuse to say the name with all the nonsense going on right now), and Ben playing a full 90.....We may have just enough games to squeeze out a playoff slot. But, we damn near have to win every game from here on out....and count on some of the other cellar dwellers losing. This sucks.

    How can you describe a tie against the Fire on the road as pathetic? Even a few years ago this would have been a decent result for United.

    Not scoring again is perhaps pathetic - but that's only half the story - we also shut out a Chicago Fire team (again) that put three past the mertroscum in their previous game.

    Rhetorical question:

    is it worse to tie games 0-0 or lose 1-0 when we dominate, such as vrs. the Revs last weekend, or to continually give up game tying and losing goals in the last 15 minutes of games as was the case all of last year???

    At least with a solid defense we have a chance to win games based on fluke goals or PKs.

    Can anyone who listened to the webradio cast give some insight to whether DCU played well, and was again just weak in finishing, or whether we just got lucky to escape with a point?

    He and RDA would make an imposing tandem.

    Johnson described the first half as the Fire having the better chances, but both teams were active. I wouldn't say United dominated the second, but it seemed that nearly every build-up resulted in a dangerous play, and the Fire were attacking only on the counter.

    Thornton smothered a lot of plays. Benny had a shot on frame within minutes of coming on the field. Etch was active and creative. United were doing the right things, including shooting as the opportunity presented itself rather than trying to walk it in.

    You guys definitely looked more dangerous in the second half with Etch, Lassiter & Olsen. I thought you were pathetic a couple of weeks ago but tonight you looked like a decent team. I'd say DCU has turned the corner, or is in the process of doing so.
