DC United win vs. New York Red Bulls, 5-3

What a freakin' crazy match. DCU jumps out to a 4-0 lead within the first half hour, but then lazily(?) lets the Bulls back in it? Matches like this I think help to make our starting XI all the more clear in some situations, and cloudy in others. The argument of Jakovic versus Janicki may have ended tonight. But how do you decide between starting Pontius, Barklage, Fred, Khumalo, or Gomez, all of who looked fantastic in this match, in a crowded attacking midfield that also includes Quaranta and Wallace?

I'm a bit upset because I had an opportunity to go to this match, but decided to do the responsible thing and write my "final take home exam" paper. Damn UMD for interfering with my DCU. So I was following the match on twitter. Anyway, can't wait to see the video highlights. Until then, let's keep this real simple.

Chris Pontius, Boyzzz Khumalo, Christian Gomez, Brandon Barklage, Fred

Josh Wicks

Greg Janicki
