D.C. United: Black-and-Red Report - 9/1
Fri, 2 Sep 2011|
-- about welcome to CSN Washington dot com in the black and an important he's no -- sailor He is Ivan Carter and he's joining us. Here to do the black and red report glad to have you in with a side note that you were chomping at the bit to to get in your talks yeah. -- -- soccer -- football law it's for the B -- big gap for DC united us was kind of weird right now what national team. Yeah business and nothing's gonna. It's stuff to talk about still with DC united not as you mentioned with the national team call up Chris -- is getting his second call up a guy you've had on on the show. And a player -- really come -- this year struggled. Up through 2010 that 2000 levens has been a totally different story for the young man in California. Happy for me -- -- back or California or is fraud Michigan to play get to -- the way the USA we'll see if we see him in action but after the injury last year. And then what He has seven goals this year topic September 11 bashing that we're in this sport are some guys find the post. Some fund and that it and He was -- in the post while -- -- and that's a great honor for him. Yeah seven goals two assists the most minutes for DC united so far this season so all of the injury problems of 2010 seem to be well behind. Chris parties here in 2011 let's move to the center of midfield now and I think the center of midfield as eventually I've been. Kind of the issue with DC united not that there are players weren't playing well but there are so many different combinations for Ben -- You've got king incident you got sins and Tina got scenes in -- row and maybe and this is the option that I think I would like to see in the middle of the park. Tino rule and -- there is Dario I think He got a little bit more offensive punch there but you also have eight iron in right you've got sick you know -- out -- who has developed at this point in his career to a pretty tough guy He can do some of that dirty work the clots and stuff so well as well. Has been -- because all year long going back to a Dax McCarty was -- those things to the overlap too much assumes. And then -- -- before that Boston was before the injury. He was playing really well at the New York game were hit the post a couple times and then the match help out there Germantown -- He was really -- -- -- and got injured self. That's good just -- I think Ben's been juggled with all your long past and see what He does there. Harder to climb out. Because he's such an acre but the Tino gives you so my energy in the giro score goals. I'll say this stuff I've been somewhat critical quiet since that time -- here on the black and had a board on CSN Washington dot com but there's a lot of things that Clyde Simms does that you don't may be. See. It accurate pass right in lace up -- in the midfield gets the ball forty gets back the principal walker scored goals. What any club goes as well any clogs this passing I think He what He does and where his biggest impact. He's what the other team can't do and I think that's that you gotta remember about what Clyde Simms brings to the table. Further back we talk about this defense a very young defense and a defense that struggled. Quite a bit -- early season and also stopped with some guys. And now we see with day on yuk which potentially being out offer another chunk of time here -- very dangerous situation you've got it in light. But he's going to have to step up because without Daon and Brandon McDonald you're giving up one that really really potent central back pairings and an ally. This is where those games are earlier when San Jose in some of those -- and had some breakdowns should pay off to they -- from it. Did they did did are they gonna bring us out down the stretch I believe they can't physically. He's the -- that we can play back there parakeets that were to play back there we know that we don't make Albers of the table that experience earlier. Should pay off now right -- me ask you a good and the bad. Yet on the you certainly hope that that this is a group that is learn from their mistakes I I do you think it's important to note that that that Djokovic in McDonald went there in there are are smart central back -- And they make Perry kitchen and Daniel award. Look better they just -- they take cover for those guys and when those guys get beat which hasn't been very often. There there are so important and all of the. The way Perry plays for the county plays taking guys off the ball as I look I'm no technical expert what you guys in this sport I like the fact He gets in there He mixes up he's not to let anybody called him. As a young player. I love that -- a switch went off with kitchen I think the first month of the season. It it may not have been narron and I -- I don't know -- also gotten is there somebody gotten easier and and it -- it just. To a 180 degrees He became almost intentionally physical and your right like that. He looks for the can't let -- do this league yet -- the other is maybe too much have to argue about that. But if they're what you do it don't take off the ball big physical. They seem to be reluctant to go that red carded -- you've seen some very vicious tackles in this league sometimes some guys getting injured. Russell -- and use your skills Bears a strong kid. You know all of its you've you've played a little bit you see I don't want put that on WCV it's just a little bit yeah -- played the haircut. I don't that's his favorite player but be physical and play your game and make the reference call a game. And certainly add a lofty comparison but you know Perry kitchen has not had a Republican U seventeens the U twenty national team so big things hopefully. In his future in the future for DC united ten games left. And I got to make the playoffs with just call this teams two good. You're you're talented they've -- -- giveaways and games early in the year and I remember Josh wore specifically say it. You know couples games -- -- ties to the games that they got away from this to come back and fight us now it's in their favor though in these young guys should be double play multiple games right. Not you hope that out at the youth on this team when you're given an excuse for the kids in the game you're saying well I think in the Kansas City game you saw some time like it's not necessarily an excuse what it is is reality -- -- -- -- ran out of legs and and was it played really at a high level as the -- stadium but -- -- I think what you gotta remember that that this team. Has guys and have bodies that can plot holes are they gonna be able to do with that you look at the schedule. They're gonna end their last four games all in a ten day stretch. That's a lot of soccer folks is that physically demanding sport. And that's going to be tough I think you got to get three at Vancouver on October 12. And then September 20 ninth at it -- Thursday night game put that on on your counters that kinda good. What road trip to break their hearts now they came down in the state in their little cocky. Philly fans just got here last week Philly fans talking now. About what -- all the Super Bowl rings but let me ask you this. All the -- days. What can we expect from him we know always when deal was -- of that is this rest should help him might. The big guy I think will be five and a half I put his legs it's got to help him more than anyone right. Yeah you know I I think there there's a couple things going on with Charlie talked about Ben -- about it this week and I've been -- said that that Charlie Davies is mentally getting to where He needs to get there still some nagging injuries that are preventing him. From being a 100% but I've had plenty of talks both on camera off with Charlie and and despite may be the perception that that He may be unhappy with his playing time. He's very happy to be here and sees a future for. A positive attitude out ever wants to play all the time. But I don't want that I've seen of carried out that it manifests itself in a negative manner now. He understands the deal -- respects Reynolds of but wants to play at but He also knows I got to be right I think you might sense He came in Seoul orderly it's a long year man and look who look what that kid came from. Not Carson to medically you've been playing so take -- -- deepest pitching body right right now Charlie and come back -- the stretch. Exactly what Ben Olson said in a lot of ways he's like a rookie kind of going through this the first time and He made -- a mid season long is now ready to perform again all right DC united next. Next game September 10 it'll be on our -- 1030 against you that's yes that's Ivan Carter on Sebastian Salazar thanks for checking us out. On the black and red report.
