D.C. United America’s Top Major League Soccer Club

She is currently starring on television on the CBS comedy, Rules of Engagement. The match featured 25 shot attempts, but only five required saves. For example, what can we read into Kaka scoring in his first start since returning from injury?
Born in Tuilla, Spain, David Villa is one of the top forwards in soccer for 2009. Though he has not played for one of the “elite” clubs, he has a record to be feared. As of the writing of this article, he has 12 goals and 2 assists in 14 starts for Valencia in the Spanish Primera Division so far in 2009.

Taking each player individually, let’s start with Hazard. Hazard the 19 year old who plays for Lille, with his name meaning danger in English, really is serious danger. The lad who Zidane absolutely wants at Real Madrid is destined to be one our next ballon d’or. He is incredible at what he does with the ball. At just 19, he is the pillar of the LOSC and has won two successive young player of the year titles. He played 52 games last season scored 10 goals and gave 9 assists. He has got all teams on the leach for him as he will certainly be the next Messi. A great thing about him, his personality. A very down to earth player, who has never taken all the praise to his head. He has it in his mind that he has to keep on working and does not want to leave Lille too early.

There are many players rumoured to be joining the Special One at Madrid. At the top of the list is Daniele De Rossi, the player that Liverpool should have signed instead of Alberto Aquilani. De Rossi is a fantastic mid-fielder from Roma in Italy. Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard are two other midfield players that Jose Mourinho will be looking at this summer. In today’s papers Michael Essien is rumoured to be on the verge of joining his former Manager.

Different team owners will take differing approaches, often depending upon their own beliefs and expectations. For some, there is a willingness to stick with an employee, even when many outsiders feel that success is a long way away. Is such an approach an indication that the owner is too stubborn? Possibly, but it may also be influenced by this belief that stability is the key to winning matches and trophies.

JUNE 11: United are 0-0-2 on this date, with both draws coming on the road against Western Conference opponents that DC had previously played in MLS Cup finals.

And like some other recent Clasico matches, this was a non-starter as Barca completely ripped Jose Mourinho’s men apart, 5-0, in Barcelona. A brace from David Villa and efforts from Xavi, Pedro, and Jeffren ensured Barca retook the lead in La Liga and sent a message to the rest of Europe. It’s their year, whether we like it or not.

Ronaldo. This much speculated about striker has scored 62 goals in 97 games for Brazil and is the all time world cup scorer. He has scored 15 goals in 19 games over three world cups. His scoring record in club football reads 240 goals in 392 games and compares favourably with most others. At his best, when he dropped his shoulder and ran at defenders there wasn’t a defender on the planet who could have stopped him.
