Freedom Kicks: D.C. United links for April 9, 2013

Ned Dishman

Daily D.C. United links, today on 'earning the right to play soccer', Lionard Pajoy, Herculez Gomez and Diego Chara.

Happy Tuesday, ladies and gentlemen. I didn't get to yesterday's edition of Freedom Kicks, so there's a bit of post-game content from the Sporting KC game. Sorry if you'd already forgotten that it was a thing. The only unrelated thing on the D.C. United site is a plea to buy tickets.

A lot of quotes from Ben and players here, including a fair defense of Pajoy.

MLS team of the week - Round 6 | Pro Soccer Talk

Featuring a back three and no wingbacks!

CCL: Herculez Gomez happy to be "behind enemy lines" vs. Seattle Sounders | Major League Soccer

I'm sure everyone's very surprised to hear this.

Diego Chara's masterful performance the highlight of Timbers' breakthrough win | SB Nation

It's about time Chara started playing like this. He's been a disappointment in MLS up until these last couple of games.
