WASHINGTON ? While D.C. United still have a game on the schedule this weekend, the friendly nature of Sunday?s matchup with newly crowned Dutch champions Ajax provides time to be introspective about the season so far.
?I would say it?s about where we expected,? DC assistant Chad Ashton said. ?If you?d asked us before the beginning of the season if we would be sitting us in this spot, we probably would have taken it. We?re right there ? striking distance. At the same time, we?re probably not that far from the bottom, either.?
