MLS Regular Season

18 March 9:38 pm

I'm not sure if anyone has checked out the Opta Chalkboard on MLSsoccer.com, but they are fascinating to read. The folks at MLSsoccer.com have done a great job of bringing fans more in-depth coverage of the league, and the partnership with Opta is a huge step in the right direction. Obviously the win-loss record is what matters in the end, but with the Opta Chalkboard, you can get a better feel or which players are doing things right, and which players might not be doing as well.

The Dynamo are off to their best start in franchise history, after defeating the San Jose Earthquakes 1-0 Saturday afternoon at AT&T Park in San Francisco, Calif. Brian Ching earned a 14th-minute penalty kick and Brad Davis slotted the ball home to give Houston its first ever 2-0 start to a season.

The goal was Davis' 36th career regular-season goal and his 22nd as a Dynamo player.

SAN FRANCISCO — Last season, it took the Houston Dynamo 16 games to record their first road victory. Thanks to Brad Davis, Tally Hall and a stout defense, the 2012 Dynamo have matched that win total in the space of just two weeks.

HOUSTON – The 2012 season has not gotten off to the start many envisioned for the Houston Dynamo’s Luiz Camargo.

After coming to the club as an August transfer, the Brazilian found the field quickly with his sharp passing and creative play. After making an impact on the club’s late season success, the playmaker was expected to pick up where he left off at the end of last year.

Houston Dynamo defender Geoff Cameron admits it: He has to battle his instincts during games.

The midfielder turned defender has the rare ability to make dangerous runs out of the back and put pressure on the opposing defense. But while it’s tempting to bomb forward at every opportunity, Cameron and the Dynamo know there has to be a method to the madness.
