WASHINGTON – Maicon Santos is frustrated.

Despite entering the home stretch of a season in which the D.C. United striker has scored seven goals (one shy of his career high) and played in 20 matches, the Brazilian striker is unfulfilled – at least when it comes to his life on the field, or lack thereof, at the moment.

WAYNE, Pa. – Philadelphia Union striker Jack McInerney is certainly grateful to have gone from out of the rotation to starting center forward in Philly’s 4-3-3 formation ever since John Hackworth took over as manager in mid-June.

WASHINGTON, DC.— Quizás la derrota que el D.C. United sufrió por la mínima en su último partido ante el Real Salt Lake haya sido su mejor actuación fuera de casa en lo que va de temporada. Una realidad que después de todo podría servirle para tomar un segundo aire para encarar los siete partidos que le quedan, todos vitales en sus aspiraciones de clasificar a los playoffs.

NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. – The Vancouver Whitecaps are in a rut with four losses in a row, but the good news is there’s a way out.

That poor run of form cost then Fire manager Dave Sarachan his job, but despite the turmoil, Chicago were able to regroup and made the playoffs under his replacement, Juan Carlos Osorio.
