Even in the middle of a great run of form you can find something to work on and for the Houston Dynamo that has been getting off to better starts.
 
If that was a point of focus coming into Friday night’s match with the New York Red Bulls, the Dynamo got the message loud and clear. Jermaine Taylor scored his first goal of the season 72 seconds into the match, the second fastest MLS goal in Dynamo history, and put the visiting New York Red Bulls in an early hole from which they would never emerge.

The Houston Dynamo Academy, presented by Statoil, arrived in Seattle on Thursday for the annual Generation adidas Cup. The Dynamo U-15s and U-17s did a light training session on Thursday in preparation for Friday's matches. Upon returing to the hotel, the boys were treated to a few minutes with one of the magicians who was staying at the hotel preparing for one of his weekend performances. Our man on the ground Ernest Carmona will provide us updates and photos throughout the week. Check out the first few photos from Day 1.

The Houston Dynamo have put together quite a run up the Eastern Conference standings the last six weeks, and the next step in that run could lead to first place when the Dynamo take on the New York Red Bulls tonight at 7 p.m. CT (NBC Sports Network, Live Chat on MLSsoccer.com).

With just a point separating Houston and New York in the standings, the teams enter the first of a home-and-home series that could go a long way in shaping the East playoff setup.

It’s been a few years since the Houston Dynamo were in a position to make a run at Major League Soccer’s Supporters Shield, an award handed out to the team that finishes with the most regular season points in the league. Although the team has won two MLS Cup titles and a third conference title since 2006, the Supporters’ Shield is one trophy that has eluded the men in orange.

The Dynamo have finalized a deal to bring former club and country standout Ricardo Clark back to Houston.

After agreeing to the terms of a deal with Clark last Friday, the Dynamo received the final paperwork and an international transfer certificate on Thursday to bring the World Cup veteran back from German Bundesliga club Eintracht Frankfurt through the end of the 2014 season.

You've asked for it and now you've got it. As a part of Friday’s pre-game ceremony, El Capitan will be fired for the first time at BBVA Compass Stadium. El Capitan is a replica Civil War-ear mountain howitzer cannon and is awarded to the winner of the Dynamo vs. FC Dallas season series. The Dynamo retained El Capitan with a 2-1 win over their in-state rivals on June 16.

Be sure to be in your seats by 7 p.m. to not miss the blast!
