After an extended absense due to the heavy volume of posts that are always generated at the start of a season, we return now to the All-Decade Team.
For those of you who may have missed some of the earlier voting sessions, we are creating an 18-man roster of DC United's best players from 2000-2009. We hold the voting by position, and the starting lineup is 9 11ths complete.
We already have one starting forward, and it wouldn't be a big shock to anyone that that man is Jaime Moreno, with a dominating 92% of the vote. I don't expect the voting for the second starting forward role to be quite as much of a runaway.
Just remember that you should be voting based on each player's performance between the years 2000 and 2009, and only based on how they did while in a United uniform. Here are your nominees:
Luciano Emilio (2007-2009), 83 matches, 41 goals, 8 assists
Alecko Eskandarian (2003-2006), 81 matches, 20 goals, 7 assists
Chris Albright (2000-2001), 48 matches, 4 goals, 1 assist
Jamil Walker (2005-2006), 41 matches, 3 goals, 8 assists
Ali Curtis (2002-2003), 37 matches, 6 goals, 5 assists
AJ Wood (2000-2001), 31 matches, 3 goals, 3 assists
Abdul Thompson Conteh (2001-2002), 30 matches, 15 goals, 1 assist
Boyzzz Khumalo (2008-2009), 19 matches, 1 goal, 3 assists
