Following a D.C. United match defying easy explanation, there are a lot of last words to be said. This post is longer than usual, but it won't be complete until you chime in with your last word in the comments section below.
DC United will be under intense pressure to get a win over a Chicago Fire team that is still sorting itself out after changing their coach, their formation, & an influx of players who have a different approach.
The last time United played the Fire, just days after hoisting the 2013 US Open Cup, a side of mostly reserves controlled the ball but couldn't find joy. Meanwhile, the defense was a shambles. Oh man, that sounds entirely too familiar.
