Houston Dynamo will blossom without Owen Coyle

Our first MLS manager has bitten the dust and, unsurprisingly, it is a foreign manager. Britain’s own Owen Coyle has parted ways with the Houston Dynamo so as to move back home to be with his family. It was by mutual consent. So where do the Dynamo go from here? Well, there is only one […]

Houston Dynamo: DeMarcus Beasley way too hard on himself

The Houston Dynamo have put up quite the sporadic array of results lately. After beating Sporting Kansas City, a defensively-stout side, 2-0, they lost to San Jose 3-1.

Houston Dynamo: Erick Torres return a curious one

Not only have they only scored two goals in their last three, they have given up six goals in the same span. Mathematically, that is not a recipe for success. […]

Houston Dynamo defense starts with Alex, Ricardo Clark

The Houston Dynamo have given five very inconclusive final scores thus far in to the year. A 3-3, last minute draw against New England, a 5-0 stomping of FC Dallas, a thrilling 4-3 loss to the New York Red Bulls, a 1-0 loss to Vancouver on a cheap penalty and a 1-1 draw with bottom-feeding […]
