MLS Regular Season
Houston Dynamo manager Dominic Kinnear makes it
clear that he does not want anyone to read into the Brian Mullan trade earlier this
week and conclude that the club has given up on the 2010 season.
Kinnear has not thrown in the towel just yet. With seven
games remaining, the Dynamo are 10 points off the pace behind the Seattle Sounders for
the eighth and final playoff berth.
The Houston Dynamo not only had to spend the week getting used to being without longtime teammate Brian Mullan, but they also began to get to know a new face in Colin Clark when he joined the team for the weekend on Friday. The Dynamo traded Mullan for another winger with U.S. national team experience, who joins the club from the Colorado Rapids.
All-time record: Houston leads 2-1-4.

I thought it would be a good idea to write a special edition
blog and cover some thoughts on the Brian Mullan trade to Colorado for Colin
Clark and allocation money.
The Houston Dynamo are clearly building for a better 2011, swinging a deal on Wednesday with the Colorado Rapids, who are gunning for a deep postseason run in 2010.
The two Western Conference foes swapped wingers on the last day before the MLS roster freeze on Wednesday, with the Rapids picking up veteran midfielder Brian Mullan and the Dynamo landing 26-year-old Colin Clark and allocation money in the deal. Colorado also gets a fourth-round pick in the 2013 MLS SuperDraft.
The Houston Dynamo
have acquired midfielder Colin Clark and allocation money from the Colorado
Rapids in exchange for midfielder Brian Mullan and the Dynamo's fourth-round pick in the
2013 MLS SuperDraft, it was announced today.
With Houston off this past weekend, Dynamo players were left scoreboard-watching. And the results were both good and bad for the team.
The good news for Dynamo players and fans is that most of the results with playoff implications fell Houston’s way, with only the San Jose Earthquakes getting a point. The bad news is that the team slipped further down the standings and now sits as the second-worst team in the league.
Welcome to edition No. 19 of my weekly blog. It appears on the new HoustonDynamo.com every Monday (or Tuesday).
Dynamo midfielder Anthony Obodai underwent surgery last week to repair a torn meniscus and is out indefinitely, head coach Dominic Kinnear announced on Monday following Houston's training session.
Athletic trainer Theron Enns confirmed that Obodai had surgery to repair a tear to the medial meniscus in his left knee but did not put a timetable on his return.
HOUSTON – After falling last weekend to the San Jose Earthquakes, Houston Dynamo players returned to practice this week vowing to push on despite some tough odds at reaching the postseason.
“We played some of our best football and we were very unfortunate not to come away with three points,” midfielder Danny Cruz said. “However, we still have a chance, and by no means are we out until someone tells us we are mathematically out. If it takes seven wins, we ... start [with the next game] and hope to make something happen.”
