"I don't think the playoffs are out of the question next year. It's something that can be achieved. In this league it's unique in the sense that you can change in a couple of months. I want to make the playoffs, but I want to make the playoffs in the right way. We have a way of playing here at D.C. United, maybe not as of late, but certainly over the span of this club that I want to get back to -- the commitment, the energy, the passion all need to come back into this club. On top of that, we need to play with a little flair. We need to entertain people who come and pay their money to see us."
