There was one common sentiment coming from the Houston Dynamo locker room after Saturday night’s 1-0 win over Columbus Crew SC. From new head coach Owen Coyle to the players, the message was clear. “It’s just the beginning.”
In a league full of coaching changes, the Houston Dynamo always had stability in that area. All of that changed at the end of the 2014 season. The only coach Houston has ever known, Dominic Kinnear left to take the head job in San Jose, leaving the Dynamo to do something they’ve never done, hire […]
People that follow the Houston Dynamo have often wondered what type of relationship Dominic Kinnear had with the Houston Dynamo Academy. This question was more than warranted since it sometimes seemed like Kinnear was hesitant in using Academy products during first team matches. As was previously stated, I had the distinct honor of conducting an […]
Houston Dynamo President Chris Canetti is currently running the marketing campaign that we have reached Dynamo 3.0. It is supposed to be the next step in building the Houston Dynamo into more of a soccer brand.
In a move that has surprised a lot of MLS fans, the Houston Dynamo have hired Owen Coyle today as their new head coach. Coyle replaces Dominic Kinnear who left in October to take the head job in San Jose.
With yesterday’s loss at home to DC United, the Dynamo were officially eliminated from making the playoffs. 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. Head coach Dominic Kinnear is likely headed back to San Jose and […]
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 […]
With just eight points from their last twelve games and just four points on the road all season, it looks like the Houston Dynamo are going to miss the playoffs for only the second time in their franchise history. 2014 has been an extremely frustrating season for Dynamo fans but could it have been better? […]
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. Will Bruin’s stoppage time goal stopped the winless streak and may have breathed life into a 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 […]
The 2013 season ended for the Houston Dynamo in a place where they have had recent success, Sporting Park. After a loss in the Eastern Conference Final to eventual MLS Cup champions Sporting KC, the Dynamo turn their focus to the 2014 season and returning to winning silverware. A busy offseason has seen many Eastern […]
Dom Kinnear and the Dynamo know what to do when the playoffs start. 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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
