To say that it's fallen on hard times for fans of the most successful franchise in the history of Major League Soccer would be an understatement. A trip to DC United's official website yields a banner that says "It Takes More", and I'm sure the fans would agree. It's going to take a lot more to get DC United back to their old hangout, the MLS cup final.

After losing their first four games to start the season off, United hasn't been able to get anything even resembling a run going, currently sitting in last place of the league with a sad looking 18 points and an astounding looking 5-18-3 record. They have a glimmer of hope in youth player Andy Najar, who has stormed into DC and taken the lead in the scoring charts for them with five goals and an assist. It's sad that almost the full 30 games into the season, nobody has managed to score five goals - but I'm sure United fans are taking what they can get at this point of the season.

At least they still have their cool looking kits with the VW logo.
