I not only am a fan of Wondow, but spoke to him on several occasions while he was here in Houston, and I got a chance to take photos and speak with him at length when I attended the MLS Cup 2011 in Los Angeles. Basically, he loved playing for Houston and Kinnear but an opportunity came up and he wanted to go back to California so Kinnear helped him get there.
I, sir, will be rooting for D.C. United to win as they will only have 40 points and will sit in the same position in the Eastern Conference standings. If Chicago wins then they'll leap frog Houston and that's a no-no my friend. (lol!) I agree that it should make for an interesting game as so many DC United players are out do to suspension and Chicago is on Fire right now.

This will be a really good practice session for our reserve team to step up their intensity and for Brian Ching to get more confidence and playing time. The only thing I don't like is that other teams are close to leap-frogging Houston in the Eastern Conference Standings. Go Dynamo!

Dynamo ownership needs someone who loves soccer, interested in soccer here in America, and is business saavy regarding the inner workings of MLS. AEG is interested loves soccer and is interested in it in American and elsewhere, but their attention is usually towards Los Angeles. It's true, basketball and soccer are both sports but what does someone who only follows basketball really know about soccer? Obviously they want to make money and capitalize on the "coolness" of it now that David Beckham, Thierry Henry, and other DP's have entered the league. The Houston Rockets paid a retarded amount of money for Jeremy Lin only to sell tickets, not to win a Championship. What if he pays a retarded amount of money for some popular soccer player in order to boost ticket sales but ruins the culture that Dominic Kinnear has put together?
Looks like I'll have to say it first, "Houston will beat New York at Redbull Stadium tonight." Go Dynamo!

So many American players have left for Europe, been forced to the bench, only to return out of shape and deminished skills (remember Freddy Adu?) Sure, there are plenty of exceptions (Clint,Landon,etc.) but for the most part it's true. I hopoe Geoff is able to showcase his skills and succeed and doesn't get injured like Holden.
I'm an American so I wanted USA to win but to be honest, I just wanted to see a good game and a great game it was. I would not have been mad had Canada won because both teams played their hearts out on that field. Regarding the handball. You have to keep your arms and hands close to your body even if you're protecting your face or groin. The Canadian girl lifted her arm and thus it was a correct call by the ref regardless if she lifted it to protect her face. She should've took one to the face for the team. Regarding the stoppage time. 3 minutes was appropriate. The extra time helped both teams try to get an extra goal. It just turned out to be USA that got it first. Lastly, I say this. Canada has some pretty hot looking women on their team. I'm impressed. AND they played like Champions. That girl that hyper-extended her leg has a lot of heart. Hell, both teams do. Great game! I just hope USA has enough energy left to deal with Japan. I know they're all dead tired, injured, sore, and everything else. Japan had an easier time defeating France. France missed an open goal on a penalty kick. Amazing!
What a game! My black a$$ almost cried when Morgan hit that snap header with 30 seconds left in overtime. Just awesome! My only worry is that this game took so much heart, effort, and stress that they may be too weak to handle Japan in a couple of days.
Everyone knows that Los Angeles and New York have the highest payrolls in MLS. What I didn't know was that Houston has the extreme lowest. Sad. No wonder Kris Boyd didn't wanna come here. Well, at least we were at the final dance last year (2011 MLS Cup) and it looks like we'll be there again this year. Go Dynamo!

I'm african american, born in Chicago and residing in Texas. I've been a season ticket holder of the Houston Dynamo ever since they arrived in TX in 2006. My family and I also travel to some of the away games. We went to Dallas in '06 when they won, Washington D.C. in '07 when they won again, and Los Angeles in '11 for the Cup. I've also been to Los Angeles at Home Depot for a regular season game against Chivas USA when Chivas ex-coach Preki tried to tackle and threw a right cross at Kinnear after the game. It was insane! Anyway, tonight we watched Houston win their first game in Canada, the AC Milan v Chelsea game, and lastly the Galaxy v FC Dallas game. There's plenty of good soccer in MLS and if you want the sport to grow and be better then you have to support it. There's a reason why the MLS Allstars actually beat Chelsea this year, the league is getting better and better.
Everyone knows that Sunday is the start of a new week! LOL!
Go Dynamo! Now, if they can win at least another 4 or more games on the road in addition to staying undefeated at home we'll be in a good spot for the playoffs. Go Dynamo!
I love how all the ex-Dynamo players are major focal points for their respective clubs. DeRo, Wondolowski, Oduro, Cruz, Ianni, Mullan, and even Holden, Clark, and Spencer with his recent firing from the Timbers. And I'm sure Cameron will Champion his new team with Stoke City. Even the great Pat Onstad who coaches the goalies for DC United deserves some credit. Dominic Kinnear's teams have always been a team in transition, always changing, developing, and always in the midst of the playoffs with a decent shot at winning another MLS championship. Go Dynamo!
Spencer was a great assistant coach to Kinnear for the Houston Dynamo. It's really unfortunate that he was released from the Timbers. This is probably the first time I've seen 3 MLS coaches fired from their respective clubs. People are being more demanding of their teams and that's great but I feel some are a little out of touch with reality. The Timbers are still roughly a new club and they're only halfway through the current MLS season. They could've waited til this season was done before making a decision, that way he could be analyzed over his first 2 years and determine if the organization is moving in the direction that the front office desires.
Wow! For once, I agree with you. Boniek, Kandji, Davis, and Cameron played better, harder, and longer than Ching. I love Ching but he does go down a little easy for a big guy but the thing is, he gets injured so much so most of the time he goes down has to be legit right? Plus, he rarely gets the call when he goes down in the box, glad he did though. Boniek looks like a really good player, he's a good pick up for Houston.
One day Hope and I will meet, together we shall spawn a soccer phenom the world has never seen. Countries will unite, there will peace in the Middle East, Los Angeles Crips & Bloods will rally to Asia and help Angelina Jolie rebuild homes in Cambodia, and Jesus Christ himself will once again walk the earth to come and see our child play.

Keep in mind that I'm a huge Houston Dynamo fan. The NE Revolution are a good team. I really like what Nguyen brings to the game and Matt Reis is a brilliant goal keeper. Houston was tired, but inspired and I'm glad they got an equalizer. Shalrie Joseph is supposed to be one of the best midfielders in MLS but he was non-existent the other day. He would've been a difference maker in that game had he perfomed better.
Correction: Zinedine Zidane is the King of Volleys. Hassli is the Prince.

I'd have to say that he just asked for the pass, saw it coming, adjusted his stance and took a swing at it. Sure, he's good at volley's and it's a wonderful strike but I disagree that he "purposely sliced it on purpose with this so called "inside-out" type of shot that you've mentioned. It just happened to work out that way.

Every time I see you post stuff regarding a Houston Dynamo game I'm confused because I feel your comments are way off base. How can you say that struggled to create chances? They had over 20 shots on goal, almost 10 corner kicks, practically 15 open crosses in the run of play, a majority of the possession, and higher passes completed. At least say, they failed to finish or take advantage of the huge amount of chances they created. Also, if you're going to say things like, "all season" please keep in mind that this was only like their 8th game. There's still plenty of games left in the season. There's still more than 2/3rds of the season left. Lastly, I'll agree that even though Watson had an ok game, minus the shot he missed on an open net, but he definitely is not the answer. Luiz Camargo is an excellent player but something happened to his confidence. That car accident, the birth of his baby, and his living in Houston must be too much for him to handle at his young age? I'm sure the guys were tired from their 7 game road trip and will get no rest because they have 4 games within 11 days right now but when it's all said and done I'm sure Houston will be near the top of the Eastern Conference table.
I can't believe New York is winning right now even though they've only had two shots on goal the whole game. Amazing!
I've been to the stadium twice already and it's awesome! I'm so proud of our guys and our City for making it happen. Go Dynamo!

Dude, what kind of "conspiracy theory" BS are you pushin' over there? Jermaine Taylor was used as a central defender under previous coaches but Houston already has several central defenders. They have Geoff Cameron and they signed another central defender from South America. There's a shortage at Left Back on all teams, including the US Men's National Team. It's a hard spot to fill. Taylor has shown that he's versatile and can play that position which is great! Why make it sound like Taylor was forced to play that position like a gun is to his head and that he's under duress? Houston's Front Office is great and has made great decisions regarding the club. Kinnear wants players that want to play there, if for whatever reason they wish to leave then he helps them. Holden, Clark, DeRo, Serioux, and Wondolowski all expressed that they wanted to leave and Kinnear helped them and are still on great terms. Some left for family reasons while others left for a chance to play overseas. Lastly, who cares where the jersey is from? It looks great, go buy one.
