D.C. United Details
The nation's capital houses one of the most decorated MLS franchises of the last 20 years, a club that has been coached by Bruce Arena and featured stars like Eddie Pope and Jaime Moreno. The Black and Red are one of only two Major League Soccer teams to have won a CONCACAF tournament, the Champions' Cup in 1998. D.C. has also won a grand total of four MLS Cups, including three out of the first four awarded after the league's inception.
Strange now to think that the debut 1996 unit finished the regular season with only a 16-16 record. Proving once and for all that the postseason is about how a team is playing at the moment, not what their record was in April and May, inaugural skipper Arena's club surged to an Eastern Conference title win with a surprise victory over Supporters' Shield winner Tampa Bay. United fell behind 0-2 in the final showdown with Western Conference winner Los Angeles, but a courageous comeback and a dramatic goal by Pope in extra time gave the upstarts an historic win to cap off the first campaign of Major League Soccer.
The franchise would repeat as MLS champion in the league's second year, even adding icing to the cake as the unstoppable soccer team won the MLS Cup, claimed the Supporters' Shield and finished an impressive third place in the Champions' Cup. After a run at a third straight league title fell short in 1998 and Arena left to coach the USMNT, Thomas Rongen stepped in to skipper the squad to another MLS title in 1999.
2004 brought even more glory. Legendary coach Piotr Nowak steered a rejuvenated roster that included the likes of Christian Gomez and exciting teenage prodigy Freddy Adu. The squad defeated the Kansas City Wizards for the fourth MLS Cup in franchise history, but not before beating the New England Revolution on penalty kicks in a classic semifinal.
Despite so many great memories, 14 years is a long dry spell without an MLS championship. Goalkeeper Bill Hamid and defender Bobby Boswell each left in 2017. It was a busy offseason for United, though, as the club traded for former Sounders defender Oniel Fisher and have acquired dangerous midfielder Yamil Asad from Atlanta. A new-look roster and history of success have the club set up for a strong 2018 campaign.
