This marks just the second time in the franchise’s nine year history that the team failed to make the postseason. The window for this team has come and gone.

End of an Era in Houston?

Dominic Kinnear is the Houston Dynamo. Players have come and gone in the franchise’s 9 seasons but the head coach has remained a constant. A constant winner, having missed the playoffs in just one season. I have written about the Dynamo struggles this season and have always said that this is Kinnear’s team and he […]

New Look Dynamo Back in Win Column

Head coach Dominic Kinnear and the Dynamo players were tired of hearing about it. “I think I’ve heard enough the last time we won was May”, Kinnear quipped when talking about the team’s last win in MLS play.

Can Treading Water Save the Season?

Zero goals for. Eight goals allowed. Three losses. These are the ugly stats from the Dynamo’s recent three game road trip. With a rash of injuries and stars Brad Davis and Boniek Garcia off for World Cup duty there comes a point where fans may hope the team can “tread water”. With stars out, the […]

After two straight wins to start the 2014 season, the Dynamo head into a week off at the top of the Eastern Conference standings. A question mark coming into the season, the defense has yet to concede a goal and Will Bruin is in the form of his life. Opening night in Houston got off […]

Dynamo Keep Composure, Advance to East Semis

Last night at BBVA Compass the Dynamo shut out the Montreal Impact 3-0 and advanced to the Eastern Conference semifinals where they will take on the New York Red Bulls. Will Bruin scored twice and the Dynamo kept their composure as things […]

Dynamo Climb to 3rd in East

Friday night’s match up saw the Dynamo taking on a team that had beat them by a combined scoreline of 7-0 in the first two meetings this season. This time, however, the Dynamo played the Montreal Impact at the friendly confines of BBVA Compass Stadium. Being at home ended up making a difference as the […]

Dynamo Shift Into Fifth Gear

Sometimes things just click. Sometimes you break out of scoring droughts, both individually and as a team. Sometimes you play Chivas USA. All of those things happened for the Dynamo on Saturday night at BBVA Compass Stadium, resulting in a 5-1 win and a huge 3 points in the tight East playoff race.   The […]

Trading Adam Moffat: Good for the Dynamo

Trading Adam Moffat to Seattle was in no ways “waving the white flag”. When I first heard the news I was a bit puzzled but after stepping back and looking at the trade again, it was a great move. While Moffat is a fan favorite and will surely be missed at BBVA Compass Stadium, this […]

Dynamo Steal Dempsey’s Spotlight

When native Texan Clint Dempsey first came on the field at BBVA Compass Stadium for warm-ups, and again during pre-game introductions, he was loudly cheered by the Dynamo fans. Dempsey’s return to MLS has been a hot topic for months and with the Nacogdoches born star playing at “home”, fans snapped at the chance to see Dempsey, resulting […]

“Preferred Eleven” Lead Dynamo to Win Over Columbus

On Saturday night the Houston Dynamo finally had a full squad. After injuries and players on international duty caused lineup shifts for the past month, the Dynamo were able to put out their “preferred eleven” and beat the Columbus Crew 3-1.     Giles Barnes, who has played forward most of the season in a 4-4-2, was […]

Dynamo Get Back to Winning Ways

A 1-0 win never felt so good. After seven matches without a win and nearly four hundred minutes without a goal the Dynamo were able to break through on Saturday night with a 1-0 win over the Philadelphia Union. The win not only helped the Dynamo get back to winning ways at BBVA Compass Stadium […]
