MLS: Knockout Round-Columbus Crew SC at D.C. United Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

It is the dreariest time of year, cold and wet and the shortest of days and no Major League Soccer. But in a few weeks time, we should have preseason games over which to obsess, and then just a few weeks more until we’re back into the regular season and spring will start to bloom. We can do it and we will do it together! To the links:

D.C. United’s Yamil Asad negotiations held up by shifting club demands | The Athletic: It looks like D.C. United had a deal in December and then Velez changed their minds.

DC United’s Paul Arriola thinks he’s a good fit for Gregg Berhalter’s USMNT | Yesssss do it Gregg!

Indy Inks Championship Record-Setter Kelly | Welp, definitely need that backup striker for sure now.

Speaking of positions D.C. United now definitely need more help at...

That is probably for the best.

Y’all, I still really miss DeLeon. =(

Austin FC immediately became MLS’ most-hated team | USA Today: They haven’t surpassed Orlando for me yet, but I definitely think they are starting in the same ballpark as the Lions.

That’s all I have, what’s up?
