There was a sense of optimism that filled RFK Stadium on Sunday before kickoff as the D.C. United faithful unveiled an elaborate display reading, "They can't hold us back -- we are United." For the team with the best home record in MLS, it sure seemed like there was more than enough energy to fuel a two-goal victory. Published November 18 2012
It's amazing, really, the position D.C. United are in. If they can overcome a two-goal deficit at RFK Stadium on Sunday, a league-best fifth MLS Cup title will be within their grasp. They'll be playing for that crown from the comforts of home. And barring a setback, they'll have a fit and healthy Dwayne De Rosario in the mix. Published November 17 2012

D.C. United's 2-1 aggregate win over the New York Red Bulls had enough drama in its two matches to last an entire playoff run. But all of that is in the past. Now, United have turned their focus to the Houston Dynamo, the club they visit Sunday (4 p.m., NBCSN) for Game 1 of the Eastern Conference final. Published November 11 2012
D.C. United will be without right back Andy Najar for both legs of their Eastern Conference final series against the Houston Dynamo after MLS on Friday announced the 19-year-old would receive an additional two-game suspension for throwing the ball at referee Jair Marrufo on Saturday. Published November 9 2012
Mother Nature must have something against D.C. United and the New York Red Bulls. First, the teams swapped playoff dates, switching New York's home game from the first leg to the second to give the organization more time to prepare following Superstorm Sandy. But when Game 2 at Red Bull Arena finally arrived Wednesday, it was postponed after an hourlong delay because of snow brought on by a nor'easter storm pounding the East Coast. Published November 7 2012
D.C. United have gone through a yearlong odyssey taking the club from a team on the outside looking in at a playoff spot to the third-best record in MLS.

If there was a silver lining to Andy Najar's red card Saturday that knocked the 19-year-old right back out of D.C. United's second leg against the New York Red Bulls, it's that the club has a couple veterans with playoff experience ready to step in. Published November 5 2012
It was far from pretty, but D.C. United's first playoff game in five years Saturday sure was entertaining. In a match that featured a missed penalty kick, a red card after two rapid-fire cautions, and, most bizarrely, the teams trading own goals four minutes apart, United and the New York Red Bulls will enter Wednesday's second leg tied 1-1. Published November 4 2012
