Jason, Adam, and Ryan talk through their thoughts on D.C. United’s performance last night.
If you would like to know why Bill Hamid’s return us such a big deal for #DCU, just look below. Hamid has faced 8.3 PSxG (post shot xG) and conceded 7 goals, and Jon Kempin faced 12 PSxG and allowed 17 goals. The numbers say that Hamid is significantly better than Kempin. pic.twitter.com/55tBGv3zq4

Extratime dunking on themselves and the rest of MLS discourse for leaving Ola Kamara out of all of the Golden Boot convos even though he’s now the Golden Boot leader!
And in off the field news, there are plans for a concrete plant within a stone’s throw of Audi Field.
That’s all I have today; what’s up?
