Wayne Rooney and @DCUnited

DC united introduced the addition of Wayne Rooney a few weeks back and I wanted to check and see if he’s made a difference in team performance as measured by the Total Soccer Index.

My analysis and thoughts on Rooney’s impact for your consideration:



After reviewing the data and ending analysis it’s pretty clear Wayne has had a positive impact with DC United.

The question remains whether or not his arrival has been soon enough to help them reach the playoffs.

I think it has – MLS soccer writers have over-looked the strong performances of DC United in the past because their point total (obvious) was low.

TSI doesn’t measure point total, it measures the consistency in quality and quantity – all season long DC United have hovered around the mid-point in total team performance; unlike the other bottom dwellers (Orlando City, Colorado, Seattle, and San Jose).

I hope this is helpful to those who support DC United?

If you’re a soccer writer who is interested in using my Total Soccer Index team performance data let me know.

Best, Chris
