D.C. United Offseason 2013-14

2014 EC Preview: Toronto FC

B&RU's Eastern Conference preview ends with a look at what has been for years the conference's running joke: Toronto FC. However, now they have guys like Michael Bradley and Jermaine Defoe. TFC in the playoffs? If not now, then when?

2014 EC Preview: Sporting Kansas City

In the penultimate B&RU preview of the East, we take a look at the defending champs. Sporting Kansas City didn't add any big names, but in keeping the band together & content they probably had a good offseason anyway. Can they improve on their 2013?

2 days till DCU: Jeff Parke

With just two days until D.C. United kicks off the 2014 season, our countdown concludes with the new #2 shirt, center back Jeff Parke.

2014 EC Preview: Philadelphia Union

Our look around the East moves on to the Philadelphia Union, who made some big moves after escaping salary cap purgatory. Their expensive midfield additions addressed an obvious problem, but did it come at the cost of their previously solid defense?

2014 EC Preview: New York Red Bulls

B&RU's Eastern Conference previews continue with a look at the Red Bulls, who are coming off their first trophy-winning season ever. However, after an offseason that saw them lose several starters, Mike Petke's attempts to repeat will be difficult.

3 days to DCU: Christian

With only three days to go until the season opener Saturday at RFK, we look at the man who will wear #3 for the Black-and-Red, at least when he's not suspended.

Scouting Report: new DCU MF Alex Caskey

We reached out to our friends at Sounder at Heart, SB Nation's site for all things Rave Green, to ask about the now-former Seattle midfielder.

2014 EC Preview: New England Revolution

Continuing with B&RU's look at the East, we're examining the prospects of the New England Revolution. Jay Heaps did very well with a young team last season, but has some major issues to overcome if he wants them to repeat or improve on 2013.

2014 EC Preview: Montreal Impact

Next up in B&RU's look at the rest of the East: The Montreal Impact. Despite making the playoffs, Montreal ended up making a coaching change rather than upgrade their roster. Will it be good enough for them to improve on 2013's inconsistent showing?


Five days to DCU: Sean Franklin

We are truly in the home stretch of the 2014 preseason, and with five days until the home opener on Saturday, the time has come to look at the new man wearing #5.

2014 EC Preview: Houston Dynamo

Houston is up next in B&RU's look around the East. Dominic Kinnear has assembled the same sort of roster as in past years, but the strengths and weaknesses have shifted to different points on the field. Could this be a down year for the Dynamo?

DCU Minutes Tracker/Depth Chart v6.0

The final edition of this 2014 preseason feature. We've seen six games this preseason, so let's see where things stand after United lifted the Carolina Challenge Cup on Saturday night.

2014 EC Preview: Columbus Crew

In the second installment of B&RU's look around the Eastern Conference, we take a look at the Columbus Crew. There's a new coach, a new mindset, and a remade back four. Is it enough to improve upon last season's disappointment?
