    Who: Houston Dynamo v. DC United
    When: Sunday, July 15 @ 8:00 PM CDT
    Where: BBVA Compass Stadium
    Records: DC United (10-5-3) 33 PTS, 2nd in EAST
    Houston Dynamo (6-5-7) 25 PTS, 5th in EAST
    TV: Galavision
    Radio: 790/850

    This is the final meeting this year between the two teams in the regular season. The previous games were a Dynamo loss (3-2) at DCU on April 28 and a home win (1-0) on May 12.

    United's most recent game was a 3-0 win over Montreal all the way back on June 30. DCU is 4-1-0 in their last five league games with 12 goals scored and 6 allowed in those games. On the road this year DC is 3-4-1.

    Houston is 1-1-3 in the last five league matches with 7 goals scored and 8 allowed in those games. However, the Dynamo have not allowed a goal in the last 224 minutes which is almost exactly the mid-point of those 5 games. The Dynamo are 4-0-3 at home this season. That extends the Houston undefeated streak to 16 games overall without a home loss since June 18, 2011. The next best current streak in MLS is 7 games by the New York Red Bulls. Their streak extends to 10 games if you only look at the regular season.

    This begins the week of weeks-this is the make or break 3. We don't necessarily have to win all 3. But losing any one of them will really hurt. This our part of the race to make a move on the pack. DALE DYNAMO! I think the boys will be ready and will top the Scum.

    This is my only game this week before I disembark for my Chelsea travels, so it better be a win on Sunday!

    DeRo scores and does the chicken dance. Bruin follows with an even flashier dancn' bear. I'm bummed for the tie but still happy on my way home with three free cans of beans. (if you can snag coupons instead, you can claim beans 3x the size as the one's they give out)

    I think the guys will rise to the occasion for game one of the next three.

    Dynamo should try to trade for Justin Braun now since he just got traded to RSL. Could you imagine Ching and Braun up top?

    I like Justin Braun even though he scored a hat-trick against the Dynamo. He has vast potential like Will Bruin, but has not really had a chance to break through yet. Maybe injury prone?

    we can't lose this game. we need three points. important next few games coming up.
    copy and paste. repeat, repeat, repeat. month after month. year after year

    same thing for 3 years now. until we finish the cameron trade and bring in a real forward, it will be a race to mediocrity again (regular season speaking).

    Canetti tweeted yesterday that they're not heading toward a sell-out for this game. July is apparently a brutal attendance month.

    They do have ticket deals:

    Its tough to sell for 3 games in 7 days, with one starting at 8:00 on a Sunday night. I thought the TFC game would be the low water mark for attendance but it may be SKC, which makes no sense from a competitive standpoint, but the calendar hurts it.

    It's not just us. Last year when we went to KC for the regular season game, it was like their third in a week or so, including a big LAG game. It was a small crowd for the Dynamo game, even though their stadium was still brand new. The turf hadn't even taken root yet.

    I hated that, too. I liked him when he played for Chivas because it seemed at the point that he was the only Chivas USA player that had heart. No matter the score - whether his team was winning or losing - he gave his all.

    Really wish he went to us instead of Montreal.
