Goalscorers get a lot of attention in soccer. That’s the nature of
the beast. But behind those scorers are players who often drive their
team’s attacks.

One of the best in MLS is Houston’s Brad Davis. In a season
in which the Dynamo have gone through a number of ups and downs, Davis
has been a steady force. The engine that drives the Dynamo attack, he
has consistently provided chances for Houston attackers in front of net.

The Houston Dynamo are a team looking for positives — though after a
2-0 loss at home to Columbus last weekend, that can be a tough task.

But one area in which they can find inspiration is the way they
responded after going down a man in the second half. Following Lovel
Palmer
's dismissal, the Dynamo pushed the gas and put together a
20-minute stretch in which they enjoyed the better play while creating
numerous solid chances.

One step forward and two steps back. That’s the theme that best describes the Houston Dynamo at this point of the season.

A week after earning a strong victory over Chivas USA, the Dynamo
could not capitalize on their momentum and dropped another tough result
at home in their 2-0 loss to the Columbus Crew on Saturday. As Houston
digs into the meat of its schedule, frustration is setting in and
the Dynamo are starting to feel some pressure.

HOUSTON — Andre Hainault is back with the Dynamo, but a lot earlier than he had hoped for.

Houston midfielder Brad Davis was named to the MLSsoccer.com Team of the Week for Week 13. The selection is the fifth of the season for Davis, more than any other player in Major League Soccer.

GK: Greg Sutton (New York Red Bulls) – He
not only stopped Shalrie Joseph’s PK for New England, but he also made
several spectacular saves. Could Canada have used him at the Gold Cup?
