MLS Regular Season
The first showing was pretty good, will the sequel live up to its billing? The Houston Dynamo will take on the New York Red Bulls in primetime this Friday (7 p.m. CT, NBC Sports Network) for the second week in a row. When the teams met last Friday in Houston, the Dynamo dominated in a 2-0 victory that saw them leapfrog New York into first place in the Eastern Conference.
Friday's 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls has been called one of the Dynamo's best performances of the season, and it shows in this week's Castrol Top 20 rankings. Four Dynamo players - Jermaine Taylor, Tally Hall, Andre Hainault, Boniek Garcia - were including in the list this week.
Geoff Cameron was not the only one patiently anticipating news regarding his UK work permit.
The decision of an appeals board on Wednesday to grant the US international a work permit was the final step in Cameron's transfer from the Houston Dynamo to Stoke City, allowing the Eastern Conference leaders to move on following two months of negotiations.
For the second consecutive week, Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis has been named to the MLS Team of the Week. His performance in Week 22 helped Houston defeat the New York Red Bulls 2-0 and leapfrog them into first place in the Eastern Conference.
Davis completed a game-high 69 passes against New York, and provided the service on the 2nd-minute free kick that led to the Dynamo's first goal.
Former Houston Dynamo defender/midfielder Geoff Cameron was granted a United Kingdom visa today, completing his transfer to English Premier League club Stoke City. The terms of the transfer were not disclosed.
Dominic Kinnear’s decision to switch to the 4-3-3 has paid instant dividends, with the club unbeaten in the eight games so far in the new formation. Perhaps the biggest individual beneficiaries have been outside wingers Calen Carr and Macoumba Kandji.
Dynamo midfielder Brad Davis has been named the MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarian of the Month for August, it was announced today. Davis’ selection is due to his contributions to the Texas Chapter of Paralyzed Veterans of America (TCPVA) through his Brad’s Brigade campaign. MLS W.O.R.K.S. will make a $1,500 donation to the TCPVA on behalf of Davis for his work in the community.
Often the best work is a product of passion. When it comes to Brad’s Brigade, it is just that and more for Brad Davis.
Brad's Brigade is the organization Davis founded in 2006 to help area military veterans, and the reason he has been named for MLS W.O.R.K.S. Humanitarian of the Month for August.
Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear does not often single out individual performances, but after Friday night’s 2-0 win over the New York Red Bulls, the Dynamo boss did just that in regard to defender Corey Ashe, showing support for the speedy left back who looks to be rounding into form.
