    Dynamo need to do the MLS proud tonight. The match in the 13th minute still hasn’t settled down. ALot of over the top nothing.

  2. DeliBelly says:

    Anyone have a link to the match where I can watch over the web?

  3. ThaDeuce says:

  4. Brock says:

    DeliBelly download tvuplayer and it will have fsc on it last I knew it was called “soccer” by the way Houston just scored on a corner

    Kamara off the post Dynamo corner.39th

  8. Neumannator says:

    I gotta hand it to Houston, I always rely on them to get me ready and into another MLS season.

  9. Scott A says:

    Halftime with the Dynamo up 1-0 on a Bobby Boswell goal

  10. gofirego says:

    too bad. win 3-0 and maybe atlante says screw it for the return leg. go there with only a small lead after wasting chances, and they will feel lucky to still be in it.

  11. Scott A says:

    oops didn’t see others had already posted the score. silly computer

  12. jon roberts says:

    hey ives, i know it has nothing to do with the article, but why does soccer never have matches at the new orleans super dome? it would be a great ambience, i know there is not a great soccer tradition in the are but it was just a thought

  13. francesco says:

    why do mexican keepers always look like such tools?

  14. Danny Garcia-Prats says:

    Good half from the Dynamo. A little bit of a slow start but that’s to be expected. I think that James and Boswell have been solid in the back. I think Kamara is having a great game thus far. I’m really excited to see what he does this season. DALE DYNAMO!

  15. Amit says:

    Wade Barret looks awful tonight. Other than that, solid half.

  16. Danny Garcia-Prats says:

    Yeah Wade has not looked good. You’ve gotta expect more out of the skipper

  17. Mikeype says:

    Kamara is a beast! I think that he will dominate the MLS this year, he has looked really impressive on the ball, getting open, and in the air.

    I agree that Barrett has been awful tonight. I am still yelling at Ricardo Clark for that horrible loss of possession 30 yards from goal. It is a good thing that he got it back. Mistakes like that causes so many gray hairs. Lol

  18. Scott A says:

    47th minute- Kei Kamara gets a cross in but it’s headed out for a throw in

  19. Scott A says:

    Apparently Mullan took an elbow. Looked soft, I dunno, wasn’t called

  20. Scott A says:

    52nd minute- Rough challenge on Ricardo Clark’s foot leaves him down for a little while

  21. Scott A says:

    56th minute- Yellow card to Kamara for a challenge

  22. Scott A says:

    58th minute- First Atlante corner. Onstad punches it away…gets back in and headed over the crossbar

  23. Scott A says:

    60th minute- Good ball by Holden but called offsides even though it was onsides.
    Then a ball from Atlante called offsides when it was onsides

  24. Scott A says:

    63rd/64th minute- Brad Davis pushes an Atlante player down and gets a yellow. Decent location for the free kick….and it’s a dribbler

  25. Scott A says:

    68th minute- Timewasting yellow card for Mulrooney on a throw in

  26. Scott A says:

    71st minute- Mullan plays it to Kamara. He gets fouled in a good position

  27. Scott A says:

    72nd minute- Davis’s free kick comes to nothing

  28. This Guy says:

    This ref whistles everything.

    We need him to come to Toyota Park and team him up with Blanco. Fire will win 17-0

  29. Scott A says:

    77th minute- Mullan comes off, Geoff Cameron comes on

  30. Scott A says:

    79th minute- Atlante players lofts a weak shot from way outside

  31. Scott A says:

    81st minute- Cameron gets a yellow card for putting his body in the way of an Atlante player getting by him

  32. bubba says:

    Damn… That sucks…

  33. jtd says:


  34. Scott A says:

    82nd minute- Atlante corner…Navarro plays it back towards the face of the goal…little scramble…Pereyra knocks it in for an ATLANTE GOAL

  35. simms21 says:

    Onstad is such an old man……

  36. jtd says:

    good spot for a kick… holden?

  37. Scott A says:

    85th minute- Brad Davis free kick….left kick and bends not too far wide

  38. einar says:

    what did atlante score?

  39. Scott A says:

    88th minute- Davis corner comes to nothing

  40. jtd says:

    yes,atlante scored, kind of a blooper of a goal…

  41. einar says:

    o nvm the gamecast is slow how did it go in?

  42. jtd says:

    what was that yellow for? some shoving going on…

  43. Scott A says:

    89th minute- Yellow card to some Atlante guy with a headback for what looked like a kick on a shin. Both teams start shoving each other

  44. Scott A says:

    Actually, the yellow card was to Venegas, who does not sport a headband

  45. einar says:

    well my prediction was 3-1 houston

  46. jtd says:

    houston, free kick 35 yards, ohhhhhhh, so close!

  47. Scott A says:

    90th minute- Davis’s free kick is headed and it forces the Atlante goalkeeper to tip it over the bar. He is assisted by the tattoos covering his arms

  48. jtd says:

    corner houston

  49. Scott A says:

    91st minute- Cameron forces a corner. Taken…Atlante keeper didn’t hold on to it but Ricard Clark jumped on him

  50. einar says:

    a traditional way of saying good game by both teams lol.

  51. einar says:

    wow….so close…

  52. Scott A says:

    Final whistle

  53. jtd says:

    i haven’t watched the whole match, but from what i’ve seen houston’s the better team, despite the score.

    that’s game 1-1.

  54. einar says:

    I hoipe houston wwins in cancun. shouldnt be much of a flight and no altitdude worries.

  55. bubba says:

    Sure makes it for an interesting game in Cancun. Dynamo go down there knowing that they have to get that away goal and more to move on. It was a strong showing from the boys and I hope they can do it up in Cancun.

  56. Cesar Barrientos says:

    overall a bad game Dinamo is not as sharp as it use to be.anyway if you are a coach try this new wedsite that just came out thise week is only for coaches

  57. ThaDeuce says:


  58. This Guy says:

    Cesar Barrientos,

    I don’t know what a wedsite is? I site for people to be wed?

    Don’t spam. Put your link in your name like others do. I click on everyone’s link that is in their name but i didn’t go to your wedsite because i’m not getting married.

  59. frank from sf says:

    well to bad houston is done. no way they come out w/ a win in mexico. as a mls fan i’m dissapointed , but as a quakes fan i’m loving the fact that houston are not going to be that great this year. and their going into the season w/ kamara as a starter w/ no depth at forward? hahahahaha.

  60. Tim says:

    They dont need to win in Mexico. They need to either draw 1-1 to tie on away goals, or draw by more than that (ie 2-2) or win to advance outright.

    So basically they need to score at least a goal. However, they scored 2 at Pachuca two years ago and 4 last fall at UNAM so Houston can get it done in Cancun (no altitude almost exactly the same weather as Houston).

  61. Gary says:

    just watched the houston game replay on FSC. it makes our own CL look extremely credible when the patches constantly fall off the players’ shoulders.
