GameThread: D.C. United At Toronto FC

Following D.C. United's Open Cup semi-final loss to the Columbus Crew, we identified a few things that our team still has to play for this year:

1. Catch the Philadelphia Union - They're still only six points ahead of us.

2. Avoid historical ineptitude - Scoring at least 11 goals and earning at least seven points in our final seven matches would allow us to avoid the "worst of all-time" moniker.

A couple goals and three points today against Toronto FC would be a great start to accomplishing each of those humble milestones.

Game Time: 4:00 PM Eastern

Television: Comcast SportsNet

Projected Started Lineup: Injuries are beginning to take their toll on United once again, forcing us to have very few lineup decisions to make. The same front six is extremely likely. The only questions will be at the fullback positions, where Ben Olsen will have to choose between Devon McTavish, Jordan Graye, and Jed Zayner for two spots; and at the goalkeeper position, where the team will have to decide whether or not to shut down Bill Hamid for the year and go back to Troy Perkins.

This is your place for pre-game, in-game, and post-game discussions. Let's get some goals!
