Will the month of May be a season-defining one for DC United? It’s certainly possible.
Here’s DC’s schedule for the month of May:
5/4 – @ Colorado
5/8 – Chicago
5/16 – @ Chivas
5/21 – @ Toronto
5/24 – Toronto
5/29 – @ New England
Only one match in that run could be said to be a definte win at this point and that’s Chivas, whose parts have clearly not added up to the sum we all that it would be. I am, for now, assuming Toronto has truly gotten its act together and isn’t quite the joke I’ve been taking them for. This is a truly hellish run here and one that could see United potentially drop a lot of points. What do you think is the acceptable points haul for the month of may? I am not sure. I would hope it’s maybe 12 or 14 but I don’t really know. Assuming the bottom doesn’t fall out of one or two of the teams above, I might be setting the bar too high.
