D.C. United came into their first game of 2017 (and their last home opener at RFK, if I understand things) with high-ish aspirations and expectations, dampened slightly by the absence of a key figure in the lineup. Though they found themselves outshot, they did seem to have more dangerous chances in their 0-0 draw with Sporting Kansas City, they did leave Saturday’s game disappointed and with some work to do.
So here’s where your work comes in, with your ratings on the performances from the game. For those new to the exercise, the scale to consider (if you don’t wish to consider anything else) is:
1 - Not a pro (MLS/NASL/USL) quality performance
4 - Average USL starter
6 - Average MLS starter
9 - MLS All-Star
10 - MLS MVP-quality performance
