    Put a charge into it from distance yowza

    Is this the younger DP they signed, that a few writers (not on this site) had been mentioning was looking unimpressive and mediocre in training lately?

      Yes and in the famous words of Allen Iverson:

      “Its easy to talk about, its easy to sum it up when you just talk about practice. We sittin’ in here, I’m supposed to be the franchise player, and we in here talkin’ about practice. I mean listen, we talkin bout practice. Not a game, not a game, not a game. We talkin bout practice. “

    I think it may be a three way tie with agudelo and wondo

    but being a DC fan this goal has special meaning

    so well taken

    Castro from Chivas USA was better.

    Gruenebaum makes some great saves but also some baffling and just stupid decisions. The guy is a walking blooper reel. If he could ever get it all together, the guy could be an amazing GK.

    And yet Gruenebaum and his team are in second place in their conference. I blame that goal more on Glauber giving up on the defense than on bad goal keeping. It was a nice strike given the opportunity. The opportunity shouldn’t have been given however.

    • Jeremy says:

      Should the opportunity be given on any goal ever scored? Each goal was a breakdown somewhere and then quality, luck or both by the goal scorer. Was one heck of a strike and physical play by the youngster. Hope he can grab a starting position because woah do we need some offense!
