Through 32 of 34 games, the Houston Dynamo’s season can be lumped pretty easily into two sections: 17 games lined up in a 4-4-2 formation, and 15 played in a 4-4-3. The fairly even sample sizes allows us to compare the Dynamo’s performances in the two systems as well as analyze the styles in each, and how they may be used in the final two games and potentially the MLS playoffs.

For the Houston Dynamo, the playoffs started weeks ago. With the Dynamo in a tight race for playoff position in the Eastern Conference, the club has engaged in some tough battles in the last month, most recently a hard-fought 1-1 draw with the Montreal Impact

After Saturday’s 1-1 draw with the Montreal Impact, there was a feeling that the Houston Dynamo had lost a bit of their grip on their own playoff destiny.

The match turned the Dynamo into interested observers of the battle between Sporting Kansas City and the Columbus Crew on Sunday.
