Here's why Ben Olsen will continue to start Davy Arnaud: "I know when I leave a spot and try to go put pressure on a ball and try to go forward, I know Perry is going to be there to cover and vice versa," Arnaud said on Saturday evening. "I told Perry, I know he has the tendency to sit a little bit more, but I told him in the right moment to go ahead because I'm comfortable covering for him as well."

"What Collin has done better is he’s become a bit more professional in his approach, so he understands the benefits of working hard, consistently," he told TopDrawerSoccer.com. "He understands the benefits of defending and participating in that part of the game because it’s still a big part of the game. There’s no question about his technical abilities and his attacking abilities, they’re second to none from what we’ve seen in the Academy."

"He told me he was going to corn-row it at one point. I keep asking him what he’s going to do. He’s like, ‘Man, I don’t have time.’ I was like, ’What do you mean you don’t have time? I don’t have time! I’ve got two kids and a real job! You don’t have time to get your hair rowed?’ That’s crazy talk."

"As of Feb. 20, I will be officially signed with DC United. It has taken some time working through negotiations and feeling out my options, but I feel that this was the best move for me .. It has taken three years now for the opportunity with the home team but it’s finally here. The players are great, the coaches are great and the team looks good ... After showing what I can bring to the table this preseason, I have been told that they are 'lucky and happy to have me with the team.' I’m happy and looking forward to the season ahead."

"I think he’s been great for us," midfielder Stephen King told MLSsoccer.com. "He’s a big part of the reason why we’ve been getting better and made huge improvements this year. Everyone respects him, and the passion he has not only for the game but this organization – he’s been here for so long and he’s been a part of it as a player for so long, and now as a coach he understands what it takes to win championships."

Disappointing. Another year for me that I’m not going to make the playoffs, it’s tough to swallow, to be honest. I love the fans. The fans are passionate. You see them after the game, they come and salute us. But I’m not even trying to worry about that right now. I’m just really disappointed that another year gone by where I have to watch the playoffs on TV.

That's Dwayne De Rosario talking about the season, which will see him (at the very least) in the running for the Golden Boot. And it's why Olsen and the F.O. brought him here. via Stouffer.
