Danny Allsopp goes waltzing Matilda

DC United just announced that they areparting ways with Danny Allsopp.  The Australian was rather frustrating this season.  When 2010 was new and fresh, I thought that Allsopp could have the ability to score ten goals for us.  But since his success seemed predicated on running on to balls played into space behind the backline, and the fact that we never really had a playmaker in the midfield, he only got half as many.  Still, his five goals (disgustingly enough) tied him for the team scoring lead.

Danny seemed like a great guy, and it was always a lot of fun to cheer, "Aussie! Aussie! Aussie! Oy oy oy!"  He became the first Australian to play in MLS.  But he lacked speed, like so many United players, and was never much of a scoring threat.  Best wishes in the future.

And now that a couple of high-priced, low-scoring forwards in Danny Allsopp and Jaime Moreno have come off the books, hopefully Kasper and Co. can pick up some young goalscorers to make United an entertaining side again in 2011.  With the success of Fredy Montero and David Ferreira, maybe it's time to look to Colombia?
