“You’ll
never beat Pat Onstad” would ring out of the supporters' sections at Robertson
Stadium and you knew the goalkeeper had just made another save.

That song
was heard a number of times during Onstad’s career in Houston, especially when
the club was winning back-to-back MLS Cup championships in 2006 and 2007. His stellar play in
goal was a big reason for the Dynamo’s success as the Canadian international
was a security blanket for one of the league’s best defenses.

Momentum in sports is a great thing to have but a
tough thing to keep. For the Houston Dynamo, maintaining the momentum of their
four-game unbeaten streak means once again taking care of business on the road
on Saturday night. Houston travels to Chicago to face the Fire (7:30 p.m.), a team is that
looking to get back on the right track.

Depth is something that all coaches crave, but finding out just how deep your team is often comes at a steep price: lost points.

Even though he had offers to stay in Europe, Houston Dynamo’s new forward
Sergio Koke Contreras is looking forward to play in MLS. The Malaga, Spain
native comes to Houston fully trusting his abilities and firmly believes that he
will achieve great things in the U.S.

FutbolMLS.com spoke on the phone with Koke, as the former Aris player awaits
for the transaction of his International Transfer Certificate so he can
make the move overseas and join his new club.

What started out as an experiment has turned into a pleasant surprise for the Houston Dynamo.

Played mostly in midfield since starting his pro career in Houston in 2007, Corey Ashe is making waves at left back starting the club’s last three games. The University of North Carolina alum’s play on the back line has many thinking the shift that was meant to be temporary could become permanent.

Over the years, looking at the MLS average age can explain quite a
bit of the league’s history: consistent from 1996 to 2001, dropping in
2002 after contraction and rising upon expansion and the
introduction of the Designated Player rule.

Now for the second
straight season, the league’s average age is poised to drop as home-grown players grow in influence and younger foreign stars are more
easily signed. The average age for the 2011 MLS season so far is 27.15 years, down from 27.36 in 2010 and 27.57 in 2009.
