Welcome to edition No. 11 of my weekly blog. It appears on the
new HoustonDynamo.com every Monday.

As we head into the
second half of the 2010 MLS season, we face a new challenge: chasing a playoff
spot. Over the last four years, we have comfortably sat in playoff position at
the midway point and beyond.

Dynamo turn a corner in tie vs. Crew

Winless in their last six, Kinnear urges squad to take big steps
Houston turns a corner

After three successive league draws, including two at home, one would
think the Houston Dynamo would be more upset that they are winless in their
last six league games. However, Houston players firmly
believe they are finally turning a corner with their play and that they stand on the brink of
putting a good run together.

“I think we’re just inches away from
pulling off something good here,” said Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear. “We are inching along, and we need to take
some big steps now, but I do think we are on the verge of starting to do that.”

The
Houston Dynamo earned a hard-fought tie by shutting out the two-time defending
regular season champion Columbus Crew Saturday night at Robertson Stadium,
finishing in a 0-0 draw. It was the Dynamo’s third consecutive tie in MLS play
since the break for the group stage of the World Cup.

The
Dynamo will now break from MLS play for two weeks to compete in SuperLiga,
hosting games at Robertson Stadium on July 15, 18, and 21 against Pachuca,
Chivas USA, and Puebla respectively. Houston’s next league game is also against
Columbus, in Ohio on Saturday, July 24.

Ghanaian midfielder Anthony Obodai returned to practice with the Houston Dynamo on Thursday for the first time since his two-week trial ended on June 19.

“Obviously we’re having another look at him,” Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear said. “He impressed when he was here, and we will see him again. We will see where it goes from here.”
