They are 6-1-3 in home league games so far this year. After the Dynamo game they stay home to host DC United on Sunday, July 21.

    The Dynamo are 1-4-0 in their last five MLS games scoring 8 goals and allowing 10. Houston is 1-7-0 in away league games this year.

    The Dynamo next travel to Toronto on Saturday, July 20, before coming back to Houston to host Club America on Wednesday, July 24, and then Seattle on Saturday, July 27.

    Were on the road? Against a struggling team? Time to be the sacrificial goat and help them turn their season around. 5-0 loss. Maybe 5-1.

    That Dynamo lineup is wildly optimistic. Mid-week game on turf sandwiched in between weekend games? Figure Garcia and Fuenmayor at the back, McNamara starting somewhere, Cabezas, etc.

    It has always been a mystery to me how these lineups are predicted. One of these days I'll sit down and see what kind of accuracy they reflect.

    in a normal soccer world, with normal fields, with normal managers. lineups are pretty predictable like they are in American football without algorithms. you play your best XI.

    in MLS world, with turf fields, and abnormal managers *cough, cough* it's a bit more difficult but still doable. just look at the pattern. i'm sure they punch a button and the machine spits it out.

    side note: Dom was the most predictable of them all. you could even nail the first and second sub (he rarely used his third) and even the minute range. :D

    I mean, who actually votes that they think the Dynamo will win?

    Has Struna actually played on turf? Starting to wonder if he has a clause in his contract about it.

    I vote that way every time, right after I create the poll mostly to make sure it works but also because I'm optimistic. I've been doing these threads since about 2012. My accuracy percentage would be low but I still believe.

    Playing to try and steal a point but saving guys for Toronto. I could be wrong but this lineup doesn’t appear to be an effort to win

    July 16th - Cabrera quoted in story saying the team needs to be more aggressive on the road.

    July 17th - Throw out 4-4-1-1 with Elis, Martinez+bench scrubs as offense. Toss out Ceren and K. Garcia (at fullback no less) for good measure.

    Where the hell is Duvall? I get he sucks, but there is zero chance he is worse than K. Garcia at fullback.

    I'm not sure this lineup could steal a point if replayed 10 times

    Our form of late is not so good and we can't even field 4 in the back tonight. I think is very realistic that you can steal a point or even 3.

    Why is he changing the formation so drastically? We have a good attack that creates chances, we just don't finish well. And why is Quioto not starting, he has a hot streak going.

    Don't worry. Dynamo on the road is the cure for what ails you.

    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results... or starting K. Garcia and expecting to win @ ATL

    Listening on XM radio to the Atlanta broadcast and I can’t wait to see what Elis did - They thought it was a bit harsh. I’d like to know what the Dynamo announcers thought of it but that means I have to go find some stream that may or may not even be activated by the team rather than just actually listening on the radio to a real broadcast.

    Dear God, I know that is 110% Elis' fault but why can no player go up and pull him away? Jesus!!

    He kicked the ball away after a foul, yellow for that and then made contact (slight) with the ref.
