DC United is running away with this year's MLS season. It has been beaten only once in its 20 games (13-1-6) and the frontline of Alecko Eskandrian and Jaime Moreno have scored 12 of DC's league leading 37 goals. DC have been extremely stingy about giving away goals with just 17 conceded.
Part of the success is Peter Nowak's possession type soccer that has been successfully implemented by DC United where they seldom give away the ball and are always probing the opposing defences for openings. Ben Olson and Christian Gomez have been the creative sparks in midfield while Bobby Boswell and Josh Gros have anchored a stout defence. Freddy Adu seems to be maturing nicely along with the rest of the United youth brigade like Gros, Boswell, Brian Caroll, and Troy Perkins.
