Freddy Adu wants you to know that he is in the District of Columbia, home of DC United. As you may know, Freddy Adu played for that team before, and he would like to play for that team again. I am not implying that Freddy Adu is going to sign with DCU, because Freddy has made it abundantly clear that he wants you to think that. Freddy posted this three days ago:

FUTURE NEWS: Freddy Adu signs with Richmond Kickers.

In real soccer news, Jack McInerney and Justin Mapp defeated the Union 1-0 over the weekend. Both Mapp and McInerney had fairly uneventful games, but one thing was telling: Montreal showed that they are willing to play McInerney as a lone forward in their 4-2-3-1. This is similar to the role that he was playing in Philadelphia before the trade, but more notable since Marco Di Vaio usually occupies that role. With Di Vaio turning 38 in July, expect to see McInerney in this role in the future.

Jeff Parke was on the field for all 90 minutes as DCU beat Western powerhouse FC Dallas. DC are now undefeated in their last five. Chris Seitz was in goal for FCD, and Andrew Jacobson came in at halftime.

Jordan Harvey was on the field for his team's late rally against RSL. This was Vancouver's second 2-2 draw in as many weeks.

Shea Salinas assisted on Yannick Djalo's game-winner over the weekend. The victory over Chivas marks San Jose's first of the season.

Morgan Langley scored the winner for Harrisburg in their 2-1 away win over Sacramento. Yann Ekra also had an assist on a Robbie Derschang goal. Go Union, er, Islanders!

After playing 66 minutes in his club's 1-1 draw only days before, Chandler Hoffman only got 30 minutes in LA Galaxy II's 3-0 victory over Orange County. Hoffman is tied for second in goals in USL PRO, with three. Stephen Okai played 90 minutes as his team got the loss.

Matt Kassel played 90 minutes in Arizona's 1-1 draw with Los Dos.

Kleberson converted a penalty as Indy fell to Fort Lauderdale by a score of 3-2.

Toni Stahl was subbed off after 75 minutes in Carolina's 4-0 loss to Ottawa.

Kai Herdling played 69 minutes in Hoffenheim's scoreless draw with Eintracht Frankfurt. Joe Gyau was the player who replaced him.
